Nope. However, I have realized based on past experiences with Jagflex that us whining will solve nothing. So I might as well try and spark interesting debates, which isn't really working. L.


Anyways, I'm going to beddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddd. i'm tired as hell.


i dont get it, why do you think in anyway, botting is right? and i mean right not becuase they bring raw materials low at price, becuase all i see thats what good comes from the bots.and about the chinning and butterflies thing, what happens when they get smart enough for that stuff?

The once was a mexican called pepsi,
Or maybe it's just he had Hep C,
He was a pretty cool bro,
Bros generally are you know,
He hailed from the land of 'taters,
He was known to hate many-a-hater,
He likes a girl named Lacey,
His thoughts about her are kind of racy,
And also his dad likes to [rooster].

Reasons why not to bot:
- risk to account
- hollow achievement (tick)
- disregard for other players economically
- dsregard for other players socially
- reputation


Really I couldn't care for any of these but the first one. There's just way too many hours in my account to risk it being banned.
Reputation, serious?

EDIT: And to poster above me, they are already smart enough for that.

I have a right to rant about my own personal peeves, it's not like I'm just copy-pasteing somebody else's thread. Maybe these threads are frequent because... idk, its becoming a problem?!

What you just said doesn't exactly do your personality justice. You've indirectly stated that you couldn't give a damn about other players or what they think of you; because they don't matter, right? Just as long as your own account is safe.

It's called an MMO for a reason, we don't want to deal with bots, we want to interact with other players. Our motive to play this game is socially driven one in way or another.

Jagex needs to deal with this issue before it becomes widely accepted and a common practice. What we are facing is RS becoming known as Botscape and a joke in the industry.

Amen, brother. If I wanted a game full of bots, I'd play MapleStory.

so your saying your against botting, but not on your own acc, see how you feel about this. but your not getting what im saying, when they learn all they can, what are you gunna do about it wen you see worlds full of bots, and there anywhere and runescape has to shut down or something like that. what are you gunna start saying when there taking everything and anything. AND for and added bonus you just sided with me when you said they are smart and will get smarter

Or maybe it's just he had Hep C,

Well why do strangers I have never met and will never meet have to think my personality is great?

On-topic, I have some friends on my list who have told me they are botting, and honestly I couldn't care at all.

what good comes from bots except low prices?
i mean having things lowed priced, isnt that what low leveled people do for us?

What you need to understand is that some people are not just in it for the lowered price, they themselves bot their level and are trying to rationalise it.

there isn't really any bot supporters here, I don't think so anyway. I know I wouldn't openly admit I supported bots on an official fan-site forum.

Society is going nowhere if everyone thinks like that.

============================================

Yes, you can't exactly tell a friend to stop botting, still doesn't mean that it's ok. Every bot has in-game friends.

im not saying full on supporters im just saying these guys that are saying they dont care about bots. and why would you want a bot to level up for you? thats the most laziest thing ive ever seen i mean i could sit there thinking of what to do but i would never bot just to get 99 fm or something like that. i mean my friend got 99 fm without botting. why do you think you cant do it by yourself?

You know what I think would be a dangerous but possible move?

Jagex could ask their player-mods who have 4+ years of experience to "do something" to those bots.

I'm not gonna go any further. Just a thought.

Some people do it for the risk of getting banned (they bored and want to see what they can get away with)
Some people do it because their friends are
Some people do it because they think they're bad-ass
Some people do it becayse they're jealous of other players
Some people do it because they want to cut the middle-man and get straight to using/showing off things
Some people do it <insert all of the above>

On-topic, I have some friends on my list who have told me they are botting, and honestly I couldn't care at all.

what happens when they start taking your kills and start taking the resources your trying to get?


You become stronger or move to a spot where bots cannot go (GWD bosses).

You use the money obtained from the no-bot-zones to buy the resources you would have gathered yourself because it is much cheaper that way.

What you need to understand is that some people are not just in it for the lowered price, they themselves bot their level and are trying to rationalise it.


tbh, I have no idea what the true argument against botters is... Just because you sit around in your house all day to gain pixels while the other (botting person) gains their pixels but is able to maintain a social life, doesn't make it bad. You just sound jealous because other people have to work less for their pixels.

Reasons why not to bot:
- risk to account
- hollow achievement (tick)
- disregard for other players economically
- dsregard for other players socially
- reputation


Risk = Reward ~ And apparently Jamflex is terrible at catching bots and gives them temp bans for it. Not much risk to your account tbh.

Ever thought that maybe those people are botting so they can get to a point where they can have more fun without having to do the boring part? (Like botting combat to pvp because pvp is fun in their eyes and grinding is not)

It is good for all non-nubs economically....

???

Reputation on Runescape... what will they think up next :rolleyes:

Hypocrite. You tell others to be nice then attempt to murder people. Nice going, you just failed life.

i mean this is kinda like real life, you have to work to get better, the things you want, having bots do the work for shows where your gunna go in life...

Reputation comes in the form of black marks (as well as friendship opportunities), so I guess that can be coupled with risk to account somewhat. Protip: never disregard reputation

It is quite sad how Jagex openly announced a zero tolerance policy against bots, all would be issued perma-bans regardless of membership status, total experience and gameplay time. Why do we have yet to see this?

@ howbadisbad,

I may sound jealous, but you sound like a botter... I prefer to sound jealous. These assumption games can be played both sides buddy.

Because Jamflex is poor because their income has taken a hit over the years of these crappy updates.

Hints to they are poor:

Raising of subscription prices
Runefest ticket prices are over 9000 (even though they claim they aren't making profit :rolleyes: )
Crappy, poorly designed/ half completed updates needing complete reworking
And now, temp bans, so they can get their subscription moneysss

Obviously the company is at fault for wrecking their own income that they have to rely on such measures now. (It started with the wilderness removal) <- *turns flame shield on*

@ howbadisbad,

I may sound jealous, but you sound like a botter... I prefer to sound jealous. These assumption games can be played both sides buddy.


And if I was? I would be getting my boring pixels so I can play the fun aspects of the game while you are slowly dieing inside from training agility to 90+ talking about things like achievement, honor, and reps.,While I am enjoying the game.
