We've all lounged around in the wildy or in the duel arena for an opponent roughly our level. We finally find that yellow level with the appropriate gear. Time to look him (her) up. Wait s(he)'s named IlIl1IlIl11I.

Players do this so that you cannot look them up on the high scores or in the adventure log (because non of us keeps our adventure logs private).

Does this annoy you? Aggravate you? Alert you to the fact that this person is indeed a staker? Opinions?

It seems to me the name can be just one layer of defence. After squinting at all those l's and finding the guy your guard is let down to the point you stake them their rules, or maybe you don't watch for the rule switch. Personally I won't stake them at all if I can't be arsed to look up their name.
A REPLACEMENT?
Ok picture this, they replace your yew and magic trees with a tree that if you attempt to cut it alone your axe breaks, if you cut it with a group as soon as you get a log you get a skull on your head, all the other woodcutters attack you and you cant log out for 3 minutes.
Bounty hunter and tournaments were not a replacement, they are garbage.

Players do this so you can't report them for botting.

I don't mind, they don't have any sort of advantage over me in duels in any case. I'm maxed melee + summ.

having a stupid name does not give you a hidden stat boost, so no.

clearly all you saying its just a name have never come across it before..

can you not remember when such names were banned? think the main culprit was 0o O0 o0ooo0oO o 0 kinda thing lol

yeah its a pain in the ass, but then if your a specdialiost staker, like that guy with 99 summopning low combat, you dont want people to easily find your stats as the suprise is how you mkae your money..

to be honest i hate staking >:(

I can't see why it matters outside the Wilderness. It would only take a little longer to look up their stats via Stat Spy or other methods mentioned in this thread, giving them the only sort of tangible advantage in the Wilderness, where rival pkers might hesitate to attack them. Even at that point, though...

I just think that having a name like that shows you don't want people to see your badass stats, so clearly you have a reason to hide them. Not worth the risk.

It really doesn't work if you can be bothered the extra few seconds it takes to decipher. I have a friend called vvwvwvwvwvwwv or something and i highscored them no trouble.

It mattered back then, now not so much. Plus, it's likely Jagex will add even more things to duel arena like being able to see each other's equipment, stat and inventory screens during wagering/game set-up.

Stakers were annoying anyway. They wanted to use the best weapon their high attack could wield, but didn't want me to use the best armor my high defense could use.
