According to this thread
http://forum.tip.it/...9584-need-help/

and proof from this adventurer's log...

http://services.rune...ame=Pur34th34rt

Apparently Jagex had decided to go down this road now.

Good/bad? Discuss I guess

EDIT: This is just speculation, but I can't think of any other reason for this.

Three months banishment to 9gag is something i would never wish upon anybody, not even my worst enemy.

Wait - I don't understand where the evidence is. Mind using screenshots and annotations?

I've been seeing these threads crop up on RSOF quite a lot recently, but I'm still not convinced that it's true...

If it is, then really it's a bit silly - it's the same as banning in the sense that the bot has to start right from the beginning, but what about the resources they've already chopped/fished/picked? Do they get reset too, or do they just pile up there as the bot gets the levels back up, then reset, and then back up again?

In the adventurer's log, it says he gained 60 wc, and then 45 woodcutting afterwards. There wasn't a roll back or anything, also he's another adventurer's blog to look at..

He gained 48 agility lvls, yet he is not ranked. Probably got reset back to 30- agil.

They did this before, and I think it's a good idea. But what about Bug Abuse?

It's a good idea but surely the gold farmers (who only care about resources not levels) will start to come back?

You gain 30k xp from Green Dragons. You lose 30m xp in the stats you trained. Hmmmm

Still sounds far-fetched to me. I guess it's a good thing if it's true, but potentially disastrous if an innocent person has levels reset. Doesn't affect me either way, I suppose.

To put it bluntly, [bleep] off.

I would rage if I had to get 1->97 Agility again because of a glitch. :angry:

If its happening on purpose though, it could be a stab in the back for anyone that didn't use a bot but got punished for it.

I think it somewhat encourages botting. If they catch you, try again.

This is stupid. If they know you've botted, it needs to be an instant, permanent ban. Crap like this means there's no deterrent- if I bot to 99 rc and don't get caught, I get 99 rc. If I do get caught, no big deal, nothing gained nothing lost.

I'm sick of Jagex playing around with botters and then being like "durrrr why are there so many bots everywhere? We gave them all 3 day bans and they keep coming back!"

Jagex Mods need to go to nonmems around lumbride and just look around a yew tree and ban all the default looking lvl 3's there.

This isn't doing anything to botting. Everyone just has to come to the reality that botting will always exist and that bots outway the true number of legit players. There has been a drastic increase of botters because this game is truley becoming duller everyday and no one wants to grind out levels.

The guys alog you posted doesn't make sense, even if jagex lowered the stats.
First 53 then jumps up to 58 then to 59 to 60 then down to 45 then jumps up to 48...

Anyway, Until I see some ingame pictures and not alog, I'm not buying it.
I see it as a alog glitch until then.

Only part of what you wrote that is true.
They ban not roll back.
You just found a glitch in the adventurer log... imagine that.

I've had it happen every time I get two levels in one session that it updates only the latest when I log off.
