RealmTrades is (Probably) Dead


#1

Hello, forum. I remember when I and a bunch of other forumers tried to show that the website RealmTrades violated the ToS. Well, Deca underwent an investigation into the bots, and the website has been dead for about a month (?). I’m pretty sure this means that RealmTrades is dead forever. There hasn’t been an official announcement yet, but everyone on the discord is pretty sure it’s dead. What do you think about the issue?

Ew merchers


#3

Its not an issue.


#4

oof


#5

So whats the current “maintenence?” is it just that they’re done?


#6

Nice to see that they’re gone now.


#7

yes


#8

Why? It just made it easier for people to trade.


#9

idk, I was originally a part of the people that wasn’t fond of the idea but I used it a couple times so :man_shrugging:


#10

It was a genuinely useful site, it made trading for pots really easy.


#11

RIP anyone who had stuff given to the bots :x:

You’re right, it’s probably dead. The owner(s) posted this statement:

chrome_2018-09-15_13-57-22

a while back, but given the sheer quantity of trades that had been up when the bots got banned, and the logistics of how to deliver these items even if the owners had the inventory (read: RealmEye Christmas items were delivered by a very very sleep deprived Jason), I highly doubt this will happen.

About the site itself, I always knew the risks and the general consequences of using such a site (hence why I interacted with the site through a mule) but for me the increased efficiency of certain trades justified these risks. Running chest events simply meant too many rainbow potions, and instead of throwing them on the ground, RealmTrades made it possible to convert them to life with little effort.

TLDR; I personally found it useful while it lasted, but had enough common sense to not put any valuable trades up so I didn’t lose anything. If RealmTrades or a similar service continues in the future, I would still use it for the aforementioned unless Deca explicitly forbids it.


#13

thank god!


#14

Kinda sucks that it’s gone, but deca did make it explicitly clear that realmtrades was against tos, so I don’t have too much sympathy for people who left their shit in bots.


#15

In what way? Was it the fact that bots would do some actions?


#16

its the fact that the bots are bots


#17

Almost everything about it was against ToS. And there was the added fact that the bots were recycled meaning they were most likely used for real world trading before.
