They'd just log in via proxies, which many of them currently do anyway.

I believe UK has one of the more popular bot companies too, at least I read it on a thread in RSOF about Jagex's legal issues.

So let's ban the whole UK?

Gf Jagex lol

Speaking as someone who's currently visiting China, ummm... that's a terrible idea.

It's not like other countries don't have bots :roll:

Banning any whole country is dumb, that doesn't solve anything.

People like Sonic wouldn't be able to play. Not fair.



OT: Oh man looks like we've got a James Dean fan!

Still amazed by what he was able to accomplish while only being in 3 movies. It is such a shame he had to die so young.


This isn't a good idea. Banning an entire country will have mostly negative effects. I can't even imagine what it would do to Jagex's morale.

I don't see why. It works for the Israelis.

emotional or mental condition with respect to cheerfulness, confidence, zeal, etc., especially in the face of opposition

They would create a too negative image for themselves, which also would hurt their precious profits and piles of money and such :D

I can't see anything like that happening.

I didn't ask what morale was. I just didn't know Jagex had any morale at all.

People should never be judged on what country they are from, but what they do. This idea will not solve anything and it is also illegal.

It's illegal if they're banning an entire race of people (don't know how'd they do that through a game). Banning a country would just be like a tariff or something, not really illegal.

Citizens of a country aren't a race. You can do it if you want. They can refuse service to whomever they like.

What if Jagex prevented people from logging into RS from accounts in China, or known macro countries? Yes, that would ban people from playing in those countries who are legit, but kill a few for the greater good?

Like, if 90% of all logged in accounts from a country were botted, then it would be a candidate for blocking.



That would only work on uninformed people like you. Anyone who can create and implement an automation system to play runescape can get past this small technical hurdle you speak of.

Its like locks, they only keep honest people out.

It would only screw over the 10% legit players... the botters would have this beat by lunchtime. It only takes a few min to set up a proxy.

Tbh Australian officials at airports got in trouble for profiling people from Nigeria as drug traffickers. Both races from Nigeria, black and Asian, were being detained.

But were they actually drug traffickers? The reasons why the Israeli's profile people is because it works.

Was going to post this. As far as Jagex can tell, they aren't logging in from China- they are logging in from wherever the proxy is. All a China IP ban would do is stop non-tech folk being able to play.
