I find the "Bot Hunters" to be much more annoying than bots. I've resorted to turning off all chat (except Friends) while playing RS to ignore you morons. Just because I don't answer every friggin' 15 seconds to "[insert skill] level?" doesn't mean I am a bot...i refuse to respond to stupidity.



This is why most people still bot, there is absolutely no evidence that they do bot.

For us, maybe. For JaGex, lol. I bet JaGex has names of thousands of botters that hasn't gotten banned, but membership from a botter or legitimate player, is still the same profit (unless using stolen credit cards)

In fact a J Mod came along and banned them on the spot on one occasion. High level accounts too! :mrgreen:


I wonder what it would be like if Jagex did public bannings...

You know, like the public hangings they used to have hundreds of years ago? To set criminals as an example to the populace? Take a 100% certain high level botting account, send it to a high-density player place, like the GE during peak times, and ban the crap out of that guy.

And er, sorry for the old quote.

so many things could happen

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].

openly ban people, could work, but the banned people would have to do something, like blow up

That'd be [bleep]ing hilarious... I know what I'd go see at least once a day :thumbsup:

At the end of the day, Jagex is still a company and all it cares about is it's profit. The bots owners still pay for membs, thus keeping jagex in profit.

I wonder how the game and botting policy would work if it was COMPLETELY F2P... then there would be no excuse not to ban those bots.

In exchange Jagex could use ad revenue to make up for the membership losses. Or, globally open the Jagex store.

Yeah Jagex make yourself famous to the whole world. Then we'll have some REAL $$$ =P~

I like bots, they make the game feel more alive. They are like little NPCs running around collecting stuff. They are like another low level monster to me, like a goblin.


I dont let them bug me.

Actually he has a point lol.

From a realism standpoint it could be counted as an inclusion of the thousands of "citizens" of the various provinces that we never hear of, doing their menial tasks (like all the miners, farmers, and lumberjacks). Thats a rather interesting way of putting it tbh.... If you can put aside the fact that they devalue both the game and the community that is :rolleyes:

As far as I'm aware I've never seen a Lv 2 "man" talking to anyone either

I've heard that at least some bots are programmed to respond in quickchat, so you can still hold a "conversation".

My friend (who i refuse to report on principle), has a bot with an auto responder, not just quickchat.

I'm guessing its fairly easy to guess its a bot, but these things are getting more advanced o.O
O.O
