Bots, bots, bots, and why they make me rage!

Recommended Posts

Are you nuts? That is a bad thing. The bots are hurting the economy. You are at the botters level if you think it's a good thing to give yourself unfair benefit.

It's not an unfair benefit if everyone gets it.

a what clan? a clan that bots?

 

There is no designated "bot clan." Bots are used for individual benefit and by gold farmers.

eh, i really don't care if other people get to have more pixels than me. i just like to play the game, and gold farmers make it much easier for me to do so.

Jagex should release a bot covertly, When people download it, The bot runs for 5 mins, Then drops the bot owners bank :)

 

Good way around bots when slaying, Go to a non English server, Portuguese are best imo

Yes I know it's a good way...but it's absurd that paying and legit players have to hop through circles to enjoy the game.

What would this help? The bot runners loose nothing, because they didnt spend their time earning the bank.

Huge gold farmers typically write their own scripts. The only way for people to switch over to a bot jagex made (which would be discovered within like an hour of being released) would be to make it even better than bots that are currently out there. I don't see how occupying massive amounts of jagex's time for it to be discovered within at the most a day would solve anything.

 

On another note, runecrafting bots are pissing me off atm.

Fortunately these bots use [cabbage]ty gear and have crap stats, so it's very easy to kill steal against them.

I don't understand how you guys can tell the difference between a bot and just another low leveled poor player. Care to let me in?

I'm not sure about the other skills, but while mining anyone who chases you around and around for over an hour without getting any ores = bot. A real person would start complaining immediately.

For fishing it's the ones that just kinda chill where the fishing spot used to be for a particular amount of time (generally between 1 to 2 seconds). The ones that stay longer can be assumed to be reading TIF while fishing :thumbsup: and forgot to check back.

It's very easy to determine who is botting. You can tell by the gear chiefly, and also by the patterns/behavior. Normal players don't run to the exact same spot 12 times in a row. Obvious bot names, no response, etc.

You can't classify someone as a bot because they don't talk. I never have my public on because I don't want to see the mindless discussions of the general RS population.

I meant it only as a detail you can look at to help form an overall picture. Not as a definite bot label.

Slayer is just about impossible on english servers now. Anything that drops bones or ashes is botted to all hell, and some things such as nechryael have no alternative place to kill them. Not to mention if you happen to come across a place to kill a creature as your task, the drops are worth next to nothing because they're being farmed for gold.

 

Obviously if you have a good bank this isn't a problem since you can just cancel the profitable tasks and use overloads and turmoil and cannon and such to make up the XP loss, but for people like me we're stuck in a financial hole that is tough to get out of thanks to bots lowering prices.

not to mention powerslaying, and skipping the "profitable" tasks (nechs, spirit mages, blues, abbys) still profits..


DK drops (solo/LS): 66 hatchets, 14 archer rings, 13 berserker rings, 17 warrior rings, 12 seerculls, 13 mud staves, 7 seers rings

QBD drops: 1 kite, 2 visages, 4 dragonbone kits, 3 effigies, lots of crossbow parts

Bullocks! There are bots in chaos tunnels too. Besides this is a stupid reply, since you can't expect people to wander through the wilderness and take a way longer trip to Nechs because of the bots.

It's not the legit players who should change their behaviour and way of playing. It's Jagex who has to take responsability for the game content they offer and deal with these frikkin goldfarming *$%£ bots ffs!

I'm so tired of the changed attitude around here. Instead of agreeing with the rants, people tend to post smart opinions or stupid replies just to get post count up or to troll the person who rants.

Rants don't need an opinion. People post rants to blow off some air in a positive way rather than flaming around or joining the dark side of botting.

 

I totally agree with this rant. I got warped turtoises as task and there are minimum two bots per world I tried so far. Even the +1500 total server is crowded by bots. This really has to end...

95% of the oldtimers on my friendslist has quit the game so far. Nice call Jagex with RealWorldTrade eu free trade etc... :shame:

The reason is people no longer care, and you shouldn't either. It won't change. Runescape is going to die at some point. Might as well get out now.

I still care. I pay a monthly fee for my hobby, so I have the right to complain. Nice pessimism here. Grow up?

Bots are never going to be dealt with for a two key reasons:

1). You're obviously contempt with putting up with them. The occasional one or two people quit, but no big deal to jagex. If everyone quit at once they'd be scared into doing something.

2). Membership fees and ad views from bots are just as good as regular players. Jagex will happily take this money and wouldn't dream of ruining their income for 'fairness'.

 

The only way jagex are ever going to deal with bots is if they start becoming less profitable to the company or more legit players start boycotting the game because of it. But neither of those are going to happen because money is money and you're too addicted to quit.

 

inb4amgnottruemyfriendwasbanned

 

Of course the occasional bot gets banned to keep the PR up and look like they're trying, when in reality it would be fairly simple to take out most or all bots. (Swap ID values every few hours, this would mess up all current bots and wouldn't effect regular players other than tiny 20 second updates every few hours)
