Runes Of Magic Posts Year 4 Infographic

Runes of Magic launched March 19th, 2009 and has enjoyed great success with eight million accounts creating twelve million characters. In celebration of Runes of Magic’s birthday, Gameforge and Runewalker have released an infographic.

Rift: Aion Clone? Major Security Hole Patched.

The coin-lock system in Rift is, as I mentioned, a substandard method of stopping account theft because it doesn’t impact what Trion has referred to as the cause of 80% of all hacked accounts: Keyloggers. With what Trion has referred to as a nonstop attack on the account databases and servers, it was only a […]

Runes of Magic Coming To A Browser Near You!

Back in the day, you may remember that Dungeon Runners was set to receive a transfer to the web browser shortly before death. Due to the nature of MMOs being the opera singers (read: fat) of the gaming genre, free to play titles have a harder time gaining new customers when that means convincing someone […]

Frogster: Misleading, Possibly Fraudulent Facebook Ads

I was going about my daily Facebook activities (posting creepy Woody pictures), and lo and behold, I came across the following ad: You’ll notice that this ad links to “secure.jagex.com,” and I quite honestly expected that this was either A.) a scam ad that managed to get through, or B.) Jagex was advertising on Facebook, […]

Frogster: This Is How You Charity

Here at MMO Fallout, I never turn down a good charity story, and today is no different. Frogster has a yearly run on Runes of Magic for Save The Children (Germany edition), a children’s rights organization that engages in all sorts of projects, with the goal of improving healthcare and education for all kiddies no […]

Frogster Account Security Compromised: 3.5 Million Accounts Hacked

As a partial webmaster myself (that is, I run a website, not a professional at web services), nothing makes the belly chuckle like an anonymous person who is likely not old enough to drive, writing a comment threatening to hack (hax) the website and ruin my life. Often, such a problem can be fixed by […]

Runes of Magic Slimming Up: New 3.5G Client

Sometime around Dungeon Runner’s shutdown, the blokes at NCsoft talked about how somewhere around one third of players who signed up for Dungeon Runners free accounts never got past the client download. Considering Dungeon Runners lists one gigabyte as a requirement on the box, I can only imagine how much the issue transcends to other […]

Runes of Magic: Security And Bot Busting!

MMO companies love to keep your account safe. Not only does it keep you happy as a customer, but more importantly it lowers the amount of time and money they must spend on providing customer support to everyone who loses their account. So today’s news brings Runes of Magic into the front, once again, talking […]

Runes of Magic: More Diamond Restrictions

It feels like it was all the way back in January, more specifically the twelfth, that I was maliciously defending Runes of Magic (being the troll I am, apparently). Frogster implemented an update that bound all diamonds (cash shop currency) purchased to the player’s account, if said diamonds were purchased with a credit card or […]

Runes of Magic: No, THIS Is How You Charity

Here at MMO Fallout, I like to spur competition between companies when the outcome can only be good things. For example, two companies fighting over who can feed the most homeless, or who can produce┬áthe most adorable puppy. Naturally, I have to settle, but who can donate the most to charity is just as well. […]
