RuneFest 2015

On October 3, 2015, Success being ranked 10th on the RuneScape hiscores got into a physical altercation at a bar with AlmostLost, a player moderator who was ranked 7th at the time. Success had supposedly interrupted what seemed like an argument AlmostLost was having with someone else, before getting into a physical dispute. Success soon after touched base with Mod Harrison, but was later kicked out of RuneFest 2015.[6]

Success later stated on his twitter that the conflict was in no way related to RuneScape and claimed that the ban was taken unfairly.

In addition to the past offenses Success had received, Success's account had been permanently banned, and was taken off the RuneScape hiscores. Mod Mark, who had witnessed the incident himself believed that the ban should be lifted, however it was reviewed by the senior Jmods, and the account remained disabled.
