I was unable to find anything particularly enlightening or intriguing in the bot related article - the issue has simply become a dead horse - regardless of how pertinent it may be. The player's acknowledge the problem, JaGex acknowledges the problem - there simply needs to be something done.

I think there's a lack of unique things to talk about that isn't already heavily disputed on General Discussion. Hmmph.

I didn't quite follow as much of 'Diversity' as I would've wished to. Could you explain a little to us, ALG?

This (on the bot article). It's been said and said yet no action has followed. A little movement or actual momentum might get some *potential* progress, but it seems too late to do that now. :\

I found the Diversity Article interesting, but had some trouble following a bit myself, and I took the time to look at the interview with Elias at least.

Bots are a dead horse. Either we accept them as something that doesn't go away, or we keep complaining.

Interview was interesting. For some reason, I suspected more top players as being older, not really sure why, maybe its because of slayerbelle.

So how old does that make you? I suspect most of the top (maxed) players are probably at least university students. For one thing, it takes several years to get maxed.

Squab unleashes Megiddo! Completed all quests and hard diaries. 75+ Skiller. (At one point.) 2000+ total. 99 Magic.

The rest of my sig. You know you wanna see it.

im young too lol

i meant most are 18-24 years old thier are some maxed players that maxed at 14 or 15 but just maxing isnt as timeconsuming as previous

but yea 18-24 is university/college age but don't necessarily need to be in university or college older than that they either have a job where they multitask or quit

highschool is harder to scape in cuz at school all day long

enjoyed the first article on bots, always nice to read stuff with sim opinions.

the 2nd article confused me... it started on one topic then moved to something completely different. no offense, but did the writer have an add attack or something?

the interview was interesting. I'm curouius about one of the pics though... what's this:

Posted Image

obviously what's within the red rectangle i made... i'm 99.999999999999999 % sure that is not part of the normal runescape window and i have not seen it before, so i'm curious as to what it is. I can guess what it is for on my own, looks useful (esp the summ part, i never did forgive jagex for getting rid of the summ tab)

It was supposed to be about how some skills are much more difficult than they should be and/or are neglected by players because training methods are limited or outdated. Skills like runecrafting or agility really only have one training method, and it just isn't very good, which is why players use effigies instead of actually training the skill. Jagex could make these skills much more bearable by adding new, unique training methods, or new rewards that make the skill worth training.

...I did jump around a bit. :-k Sorry

I didn't read the articles (usually come here and read a few comments and decide if articles are worth reading).
The picture shows him viewing another member of the party, particularly their inventory.
The tabs go player inventory - worn inventory - BoB inventory - skills.
I'm guessing either you don't dungeoneer often or it's still not common practice...

Lol my question is how the guy he's viewing has two of the same key.

In dungeoneering you can see the invent / stats etc of your teammates which is what Elias has done here.

Found the interview with Elias very interesting. The other two were both well-written, but just not as interesting to me.

And whoever organises these interviews, I'd personally like to see an interview with Drumgun, he does post here fairly regularly, so it might not be too hard to arrange.

The interview with Elias was very nice and it's nice to know he left RS on good terms rather than bad ones. IMO he should get 1 more xp just to annoy all the OCD people :P
Goals for 2012:
  • Quest Cape
  • MAX

Thanks. It was a fun interview to do (Just as the Suomi one was). I'll see what I can do on that front :)

I guess the most surprising thing to me was how young all those top players are, and then the caption : "There’s over 8 billion XP in that picture!" really got me :P
Feeling so over the hill right now...

In real life MMO you don't get 99 smithing by making endless bronze daggers.

The answer to the problem is the simple, painful one.
Get rid of the free trade and slowly gear the game towards untradeable end game material.

But, hey 91% of runescape fools voted for this so why care.
My playtime on runescape is unaffected by bots.
I don't value gp or tradeable goods.

I don't team dung, so that would explain why i did not know about it.

Two things:

First of all, removing free trade will obviously help, but it's no magical wonder weapon. People forget quite often that the number of bots was steadily increasing before the announcement too, and there were several quite crowded spots already.

Second thing: You can forget about Jagex removing free trade. It would be terrible for PR and as long as the game keeps running and making a profit you won't see that happening.
