J a m e s Posted July 20, 2011 Share Posted July 20, 2011 As far as bots go, other games that cost $15 a month still have bots. You will always have bots as long as membership is affordable for anyone. You still had bots when there was no free trade. Bots are a fact of gaming life. While it's true that bots exist in any MMO, it's also fair to say that the problem is much larger in Runescape for a couple reasons. 1) Almost everything in runescape can be botted. The gameplay of Runescape is much more repetitive than most other MMO's and that is something bots are good at doing, unlike humans who do not have an infinite attention span. 2) Money is extremely important in the Runescape metagame. You need money, and lots of it, to get the highest and most efficient rates of experience in the majority of skills. Unless you are a dice host, lucky staker, or something similar, earning money will slow down your experience gain drastically. These two factors combined make botting, and by extension, RWT (real world trading), very attractive. Bots are much more of a glaring issue in Runescape than in other MMOs. noobs crowding hill giants? not on my watch Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
