Hidden Update: Bots Dying

Recommended Posts

I think you're all reading way too much into a basic emote that's been in game since September 21, 2011 ... :unsure:

What are you talking about? RuneScapers never read too much into things! If anything we arent looking outside the box ENOUGH!!!

 

Perhaps the animation is meant to signify the dying breath of Aaron the Moor in Titus Andronicus (because it sounds a little bit like a robot name... Titan Androidicus) and because he mentions being muted.

 

O, why should wrath be mute, and fury dumb?

I am no baby, I, that with base prayers

I should repent the evils I have done:

Ten thousand worse than ever yet I did

Would I perform, if I might have my will;

If one good deed in all my life I did,

I do repent it from my very soul.

 

*snort* :lol:

My fastest bot kill has taken under 10 seconds, though I suppose there is the chance that someone reported it a couple minutes prior to myself. They seem to be banned much faster on P2P servers than F2P servers when I report.

10/10 for style - One of the better things in a long time.

 

Seems pretty damn fast for me. For non-dummy accounts anything less than 10 minutes is like super fast if it isnt banning legit players - Which I do believe it shouldnt. Maybe 5 minutes for dummy accounts which it is also removing from the game quite timely.

 

Oh - Obviously - For add bots they are muted FAR quicker than their death too. So it seems to work quite well - Muted to save our eyes, while they keep spamming in muted mode to confirm a ban on them.

I think I spent 1+ hour watching ad bots explode on world 1. Took a while before I saw one suffocate. They last about 5 minutes before exploding.

 

Some of them would get muted but wouldn't explode, which was a bummer. They would eventually log out. Probably the ones that were exploding instantly were muted ones logging back in.

 

It was fun. I looked at the ad bots from a specific company and after exploding they would churn out two new ad bots after about 5 minutes. So they were essentially advertising about half the time, better than before but not a perfect result.

Some people are saying that a dragon similar to mithril has been coming down and killing the bots recently. Can anyone else confirm?

Haven't seen that yet, Jacmob is in W1 and he just told us that 'botwatch' is a new system he developed that is making these bots explode.

By reporting people at daemonheim I hope you don't mean the dung floor seller adverts. Those aren't bad.

 

EDIT: At least not the legit players adverting...

This is really great, glad to finally see something happening in the war against bots. Personally, I don't mind a 5 to 10 minute wait if it means they are verifying it really is a bot. Better then them accidentally removing legitimate players.

 

I saw a GE without bots as well while I was there..... first time since Clusterflutterer.

If the "legit" players are advertising using auto typers though then they can GTFO and I'm sure they'll get picked up by the new system when it's fully rolled out.

Nothing more annoying than seeing a level 130+ with 50 dungeoneering advertising for these stupid floor leech clans, using an autotyper as well.

Fun fact: Once you start advertising with an auto-typer, you're no longer legit.

I don't know about advertising, but it looks like autotyping certainly is. About time, too.

THE place for all free players to connect, hang out and talk about how awesome it is to be F2P.

So, Kaida is the real version of every fictional science-badass? That explains a lot, actually...

I've also heard there is a liklihood of being temp-banned for using mousekeys, based on how Botwatch bans. Anyone hear anything more into this? All I heard of this was a friend ask a J-mod, and the J-mod saying if you get temporarily banned, you'll know not to do it again.

 

I don't really get any xp in RS, so it doesn't bother me. Just the same, as long as everyone is treated equally in the regard I don't mind. I simply felt that maybe I could save someone a temp-ban if there is some truth to this. Thanks for any details.

Liking the new system, though it does not yet seem to be able to handle the chat spam bots that gather names from fc's and then pm them all in a matter of seconds. I wonder if this is because they are not yet in the detection target zone (I expect they have the system only looking at accounts within defined areas to start with, to make sure it works in a live situation first), or if it is because these bots can get all their pm's out before the system can ban them. I do hope that eventually those pm spam bots are also a thing of the past.

 

This should be an interesting few days and they bring more of their systems online, and start targeting more areas. I picture a future of roving ad bots standing wherever the ban system is not currently active that day/week. Presumably the major ideal points will always be protected, so even if they try this it will be in the middle of no place where no one cares.
