What if Jagex changed the rules and permitted botting?

I would quit if botting was deemed to be acceptable. Coins, levels, etc. would cease to have any value. I suspect that most of those who claim they would begin to bot certain skills would soon quit as well once there was no longer any human interaction in the game due to all the players being non-human.


Nah, I'd have my bot running while I was busy with IRL, then I'd come home and dungeoneer and reap the benefits without any of the pain. Because honestly, a lot of skills are just painful. I want to have fun, not click on agility course obstacles for hours and hours.

I'd just continue playing like I normally do and most likely get outraged and quit. Botting is basically acceptable now and the rule isn't stopping anyone from botting that really wants to. What's the point in playing a game for achievment? You get the sense of accomplishment sure, but what did you gain? If you botted while you slept and played for enjoyment during the day, then all you did was achieve something superficial and further kill the game you play for enjoyment.

If you don't like a skill, don't train it. There are plenty of other things that are fun to do in RuneScape. You don't have to achieve max skills in your time in RuneScape. Therefore, botting is unecessary, unless you only strive for achievements and money on a virtual world.

Problem with dont like it dont train it is there are lots of barriers in runescape where you do need to train things you dont like.

The fact that ANY skill is unenjoyable because players find it to be boring, repetatitve and frankly more fit for a machine then human is a failure on Jagex's part.

I will change my stance on botting if Jagex made certain skills unique, non repetative and frankly more fun. I think the only one who really enjoys firemaking or agility is my autistic cousin who is obsessed with repetition.

FMing doesn't bother me as much as say, agility, but only because I find it vaguely amusing to make shapes and patterns without losing time.

I can agree that it is a somewhat tolerable skill, however I dont think anyone here legitimately trains that skill for fun like they would go on xbox live for an hour for fun.

Its bearable for a lot of people but not entertaining for 99% of people (my autistic cousin is one of the few people who legitimately enjoys the skill like others enjoy xbox live).


Thats all im saying, if Jagex wants any results against bots all 25 skills should be something people are doing for entertainment not to hurry up and get over with so they dont have to bother with it anymore.

What if Jagex dropped more party hats.... :-k

Now there's an idea we can all get behind. :thumbsup:

On topic: I, like a lot of other people apparently, would quit. Out of control botting is the reason I quit MapleStory.

Well personally I wouldn't quit because I love Runescape. The Grand Exchange items would sure drop really low because everyone would own for instance Dragon Claws because if someone is botting everyday they would get Claws a lot.

I don't think I would quit; I would probably just go about my business as usual. However, there are already a lot of bots as is and to me it seems if the rules were changed it wouldn't make a difference..

Wish theyd just make a couple [Caution: Jagex Rule Violation] servers and tell the botters to get their asses over there so we can enjoy ourselves in peace.

Based on public opinion of the number of bots in RS as well as the data that shows how many bots are online (game update RS population graphs), I'd say it will take more than a "couple" servers. :)

... And there's no point in botting or training Runecraft when I can just make RSW make me Emp Fire Staves.


Like Obtaurian nearly all I do is DG! All day, erryday, all day erryday!


JaGEx ever allowing/admitting (and especially supplying bots) that their game is so boring that it shouldn't be played by real people would be the saddest thing ever...

I honestly don't understand how killing bandos or arma is any more fun than killing a bunch monsters on a slayer task, and i'm pretty sure the "fun" stuff would just get botted too because of the moneymaking ability of killing bosses. The only "fun" things are the things that don't have anything to do with grinidng or training a skill whatsoever or making money, which really is just pvp activities, and that doesn't require the training of anything other than combat stats. And it's not even necessary to max combat, since you only fight people near your level anyway in the wild.

Dungeoneering is a little bit more "fun" compared to anything else on runescape, but running through a dungeon doing "puzzles" and killing stuff gets old fast, and i don't think a lot of people do it for the intrinsic enjoyment of it as much as for the rewards. People just feel like it's "fun" because it's more tolerable than activities like runecrafting.

The number of botters would increase. People would ragequit. You'd probably have something like 'Runescape Porn Day' as a protest by some people.

Game would still run.... But you'd have a community of legit players looking down on the botters. So in the end, not MUCH changes. Though there are changes and people may see the game as less of a challenge.


I'm not sure what'd happen exactly, so it's just speculation. The Runescape community is very different from the community of the MMO that I currently play, where botting is not a bannable offense.

The legitimate players.

Any real legitimate player would rather not exist in a game filled with cheaters. That's why so many people view most of the games made by Nexon as a joke.

As for the question itself, I most likely would cry for two or three days before becoming anti-Jagex forever.

However, Jagex would never do this, so I doubt such a day would ever come.

Because I've been playing since around the launch of RS2, I don't think I'd bot. I've quit this game for years at a time. I don't see myself quitting anytime soon because I'm so into RuneScape at the moment, but this would push me to the edge, I'd quit when I'm the last standing RuneScape player, surrounded by botters. Thank god JaGeX would never do this.

they already allow it, personally don't care as I have done it myself and would again on "throwaway" accounts.
I hardly play as it is right now, but allowing botting wouldn't change a thing for me
