I have noticed in the last 24-48 hours an absolutely massive increase in bots on 2007scape. Seen friends pics of willow spots, fishing spots etc. I also know there are now law bots. Anyone else notice this in last 1-2 days?

Only managed to get about 4 in the pic but there were another 5 walking around at goblins. There were a bunch more at chickens a bit north. I was on a troll slayer task earlier today and there was even a bot looting all the big bones and banking. Really worries me how many bots appeared in the last couple days. Jagex has a very bad track record in dealing with these things in a timely manner. Bot watch on the main game seems to be doing well as it is rolled out. Hopefully it can be adapted to 2007 servers soon. Really depressing seeing this happen. I knew it would come, but that doesn't make it any better.

Mostly posting this to raise awareness. Hoping Jagex is made aware of this and does something soon. Was really nice having no bots on runescape for the first time in like 9 years.

Looks pretty similar to 07.

Jagex needs that BotWatch. Is BotWatch or whatever tech they are calling it, working well in the main game?

Well I have seen bots suddenly disappearing. I was picking up bones (don't ask why) in Lumby when every single bot killing goblins went p00f! I checked the hi-scores and some of them were removed (at least the names I remembered).

Well, what did you expect, was only a matter of weeks to get the old bots up and running again.

I've seen numerous posts on RSOF of people complaining about bots, the threads are closed down almost immediately and the topic starters are asked to report them ingame.
Ye, let's all report the swarms of bots around you and someone will manually check their accounts if they were truly botting...

Pretty accurate representation of 2007 to me *rolls*


This was always going to happen, everyone started from scratch in 07scape and there is enough of a demand for people wanting to cheat their way to the top for the bot devs to develop for it.


Surely noone is actually surprised by this?

It's sad that there is already such an influx of bots. Was always going to happen though, would be nice to see JaGeX implement a similar system for bot control that they have in EOCscape

I've heard a rumor, I guess you could say, that about a week ago they implemented at least some part of the BotWatch system on to the server, but if that's the case they need to work on it a bit more.

If that's true, then don't forget that the BotWatch system takes time to build up its knowledge of botting behavior and get running at full stride. Give it time.

Yeah I've seen an increase past 48 hours too, bizarre.

I've decided to not care though. All bots have ever done is make unbottable stuff worth more, but with no worthwhile unbottable PVM (Other than DKs), nothings gonna change, everything is bottable. Maybe zerk rings go up a little relative to everything else. Maybe there are more ess bots than rc bots so ess is cheaper. Meh.

Oh and it'll probably lead to more dumb people with money to lose in the wilderness, which is great.

I was always surprised they didn't make bots for stuff like Corp and Bandos, they were very simple and profitable tasks and death was no biggie with the lengthy gravestones/time allowed to get back at corp.

But yeah. They didn't, in all those years. I can't see them doing it now.

I remember reading about it but i don't know if it was just a clue scroll obtainer (kill enemies) or it did the clues, or both. It was talked about quite a lot so i suspect it did both.

So you post a picture of 1 bot and 5 bots and say that there is 100 bots every world in that spot. #logic?

And yes, there has been massive increase since eoc gp is worthless since no one plays it and 07 gp is like 25 $/m

He didn't say there were 100 bots in that spot. He claimed there were more than 100 bots across all areas, across all worlds. Furthermore, the first picture contains three bots, not one as you suggest.

#logic

Although logic presumes you actually read the argument presented to you, rather than use it as an excuse for a very weak attempt at flamebaiting re: EoC.

So I heard they actually nuked bots in the last update. I haven't seen any bots at all in Al Kharid or at the yews in Draynor and Edge. The goblin bots are fewer too.
