It's just putting two and two together. Between the people who admit that they have botted (if you've known they for a while), and the people who one might suspect are botting (how many people can click repetitively and not even have the slightest desire to say "Hi," despite having time to do so), what conclusion does one draw?


If you are metagaming you do not have time to do so. Typing takes precise ticks which impacts on the xp:hr in the long run.
Plus being unsociable is hardly a good measure to go by at all many people be clicking away but watching tv or talking on skype and not paying attention to chat, some will even have chat turned off.

Not talking is the absolutely WORST measure of botting, especially seeing as most bots these days are more than capable of holding a basic conversation so if anything passing basic chitchat of hi, what's your level etc. is more indicative of a possible bot than not talking at all.


I remember when bots used to talk. I would say "Stupid level?" And much to people's bemusement, the air altar became filled with quick-chatted "My Runecrafting level is []." And if you try out some of those AI programmed to hold a conversation, you'll see it's easy to distinguish a difference after a few lines-they tend to say something random or miss anything subtle.

I've seen and reported quite a few maxed player boting cooking in the cooking guild... How to tell ? Sometimes their bot messed up and they run next to the range, stay there a while, return bank, repeat. That lasts for a few minutes... Next to keyboard botting i guess. SAD... they could just afk like allmost everybody else.

Have they increased the chance of a random event? I used to get one about every 500k xp and now I've gotten 6 in 1.2m xp

Wasn't it one in 200k for a fair while now already?

There was a mass ban of some sort, hinted at if you read Jagex's Twitter. Someone congratulated them on a successful bot nuke and they replied with a ";)"

I thought so too. I don't feel it has changed.

Been pking green dragon bots for laughs. It's pretty fun, like hitting a pinata when one drops 10+ green dragonhides and bones. Get it in now before optimus ruins it (and by ruins I mean makes everything better)

Also, note that by banning 100k or whatever number of bots at once, it will have a much more devastating impact, if you will. All of a sudden they go from full steam ahead to no more gp for a while, rather than noting that a few of their bots are starting to get banned and having time to adapt (including transferring off the cash).

Definitely another massban. I went up 5 overall ranks (470-465) and between 10-500 ranks in other skills. Kinda sad how maxed players are still botting/doing other illegal things.


Or maybe the 5 maxed players went F2P.

Ah so THAT is what people use runetracker for. I always have used the other one (runetrack). Thanks for answering the same question I had. :)

On topic - it's nice to see some (a lot) bots were banned. I still hope for the bigger nukes, though since Optimus is released at this point, I don't know if they'll officially announce them.

Optimus isn't yet released, or at least not the bot-nuking part of it, from how I understand what Jmods posted.

Not perfect, but you can see how many people are being banned every so often.

Today's release has seen the introduction of the Optimus platform in place of many older build systems. As you've seen, this means that the recent performance issues have be resolved for almost all players, although there are still some engine updates being worked on to improve performance even further in various areas. :)

Optimus is not a change to the game engine itself, but a library that allows us to develop fixes to these sorts of issues very quickly. While today's update has already acted as another nuke to bots, it was targeted towards performance improvements and so is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to bot prevention. Optimus will allow us to introduce various anti-bot measures seamlessly, regularly, and without reducing performance heavily. We also have another huge update in development along side all of this to break bots of every kind (not just 'inflection' bots). There's a lot coming in the near future; watch this space!

Optimus is released; but as you said, the bot nuking aspect isn't absolutely released yet.
