Theres a certain rotten potato you should look up...


Hasn't the person who stole that gotten their account banned already?



EDIT:

>Go to GOP in w61
>90% of the "people" there are bots
>Ragelogout because your entire team is hold bots and minigame is ruined

DG bots don't bug me as much because they don't slow down my floors.


Bots in there just make it easier to win. From what I saw the majority of bots pile the yellow team. Just have your friends and whatever clan reigns there now spam green.

Where's the fun in that? I just miss when botters weren't liked by the majority and now botting is pretty much accepted by the average player.


It's accepted because the pros of having bots in the game far outweigh the cons. Add to that the fact most people on this forum are over the "chop yews for money and xp, and buy 99 cooking for respect" stage where botting has a negative impact.

From the empty days of hope, deny the darkness
Follow my voice, we'll run far away from here

If only to hide, to escape this life
And live forever, forever in the sun

If bots were positive surely jagex would just remove those things from the game (make the game more lightweight) and provide the items through the GE directly - they could just add a steady supply of X items an hour.

Really above attitude shows a pretty ignorant "cause it doesn't affect me directly it doesn't matter for me". I've got a good rhyme for that:

First they came for the communists,
and I didn't speak out because I wasn't a communist.

Then they came for the trade unionists,
and I didn't speak out because I wasn't a trade unionist.

Then they came for the Jews,
and I didn't speak out because I wasn't a Jew.

Then they came for me
and there was no one left to speak out for me.


Maybe more fit:

First they came to fishing
and I didn't speak out because I wasn't fishing

Then they came to the yews
and I didn't speak out because I didn't cut yews

Then they came for the ores
and I didn't speak out because I didn't collect ores


Then they came for me
and there was no one left to speak out for me.

The day bots can do Nex as a coordinated team without a hitch is the day that I will bot.

Goal justifies the means?

Are you trolling or that much of an egoistical person to only care about what you do?

Lies! FAKE! There are NO bots in RuneScape, Jagex said they would get rid of the bot problem as soon as free trade came back.
Me and the wise old man go way back.... he was a foolish boy back then.

Hi

After reading through this thread I got curious, so I did a search and quickly found the site which I think @Awolo is referring to and I must admit that I got a little very impressed with the vast selection of bots on offer.

I also must admit that nearly succumb to the dark side when I discovered that they do in fact offer a dung bot (I'll never be able to love playing dung as dung and I are like night and day)

also, I found the price-tag for purchasing a bot to be quite reasonable (a factor which surely won't help to decrease the bot population).

So even if I got tempted (and I sure did) then why didn't I take the plunge ?

Because, even if they claim that the bots can't be detected then I'm for one is not prepared to find out if this is really the truth or not as I find the stakes a little to high for my taste - i.e. why run the risk of getting my current account banned (I have had this one since I stated playing in 2005 if my memory serves me well) and loose the countless of hours just because I wanted to cut a few corners.

So eventhough I'm very impressed of what the bots are capable of I would just say:

Thank you, but no thank you.

Still I would very much like to watch a bot solving a quest and playing dung - in the name of science ofcourse \::/

Sadly there are people who give in to the temptations because they know if their account gets caught the only thing that happens is their xp get halved, or if it gets banned they bot it all back on a new account.

If botting was allowed, I'd do it in a heartbeat. I have absolutely no interest in grinding skills when I could be dungeoneering or boss hunting. As it stands, though, it's way too risky to consider.

I agree with this for the most part. There are some grinding skills that I just can't bring myself to do. If there wasn't a risk and it wasn't against the rules, I would possibly do it.

Hi

Yeahh, and it's kinda sad that some of us feel this way, because if Jagex one day would allow this then it would (and it already has) devalueate items like skill capes.

Personally I'm not really interested in having a skill cape just so I can show the rest of world that I have wasted to many hours in-game instead of going out into the real world, but having said that I can still take a few moments standing an watching a (in admiration) player who is wearing a runecrafting skill cape.

I would absolutely hate to know that the player had botted his/her way to earn the right to wear it.

I would never bot, even if it was allowed. I like training itself more than getting levels and if this isn't the case, I just don't train at all.

I have IRL friend who have botted multiple 99s without getting banned/rolledback/hacked. Even one guy who makes a few hundred bucks a month by botting maxed turm zerkers and selling them. That only happens if you bot for 24h or bot all night play all day.

Bot are very complex and antiban is brilliant, I've seen my friend run an agility bot and it is impossible to tell the difference between it an a real player, it makes little mistakes randomly, moves the pointer to check exp and different skills, opens different tabs, goes afk for short breaks, moves the pointer offscreen, clicks the obstacles in random parts, alternates between spamclicking and precision clicking. Much more realistic then a player like Jebrim that does perfect courses for 15 hours straight. People sink a lot of time into developing these and the community is massive, no wonder the products are so good at what they do.

Like Obt said, not worth the risk though of maybe leaving it on for 48hours and getting caught.

Once people get it into their heads that bots are inevitable and need to be accepted, maybe these threads will stop popping up.

Doesn't really concern me. You can't successfully bot dungeoneering, and even if you could, I play this game to achieve personal goals (and blow off steam/stress from life), not try to reach some prestige.

I'll concede that bots are inevitable, but I doubt they'll ever be accepted. Until they are, then people will continue to be frustrated with them and these threads will continue.
