Jagex Stance On Multilogging - Changed

Recommended Posts

You guys think making the rewards better will DETER people from multilogging them? You do realize most people are not multilogging because of a lack of people, but because of how much easier it is to manipulate the results right?

This is not true in most cases.

The games multilogged are those that are utterly dead, yet provide a tangible reward.

Before they died they all sustained active fcs that played rigged games without anyone multilogging.

Yeah thats the real reason.

 

I hope they make an IP checker for minigames too.

Jagex knows if you multilog. It's incredibly obvious even if you use a VPN or a separate computer. If you don't get banned, it's because they decided to be nice.

 

Worst comes to worst, you could always just email them if a player breaks a serious rule. They take those reports pretty seriously.

Even if the majority of those are only multilogging because of how dead the minigames are (which i doubt is the majority, but I could be wrong), increasing the rewards is only going to make people who are multi-logging them want to do it more, because it's more rewarding, as well as encourage those on the fence to now do it.

 

The problem really lies in how Jagex handles the rule breakers, or in this case, doesn't.

I think I agree that Jagex should take a harder stance on these minigame multiloggers, but also try to revitalize the minigames by increasing their rewards or implementing that "minigame spotlight" that I wish had won the poll it was in. Neither would solve the issue on its own, but together it would make a significant impact.

This change has been 10 years too late. I never understood that logic that two IRL friends can give each other's multiple accounts unbalanced trades and all is well, but if an individual does it then it's unfair and breaks gameplay. Yes, now there'll be some exploits but really I think that's fair so long as they're not botted. Want to micromanage four or five accounts that are running essense to the astral altar, be my guest.

 

The minigame issue being brought up is legitimate. Lot of dead mini-games out there now. Jagex needs to seriously consider having NPCs fulfill some mini-game roles on some servers. Perhaps make it so that players can purchase the NPCs time for that minigame as a method of balance. Imagine hiring a group of NPCs to run the blast furnace for example.

I'm conflicted about this mainly because I have a personal goal that deals with this problem intensely:

Getting 60K Great Orb Project tokens.

 

It's virtually impossible to get at the moment without alts. The official worlds are dead. The forum threads are dead. There is one active friend chat, which isn't even active half the time. It also forbids 50:50 and, considering that GOP stems from the era of all or none thinking AND that the players in there are really good (one guy beat me and another person by himself), means it's nigh impossible to get tokens there at my level (and if I pursued it, Master RC would take considerably longer than even the current 50:50 method which would take 42 hours).

Add to that a lot of people whom I asked to help me out (friends, HYT or my clan) are not interested in getting the Master RC robes in the slightest and I'm left impossible to get them, or at least not enough to fill the mandatory 4 slots.

 

Then a few days ago I did a game with another guy who had 2 alts who he used to fix games and finally the Master RC robes looked feasible to get. Now it's apparently illegal and I'm again left without an option of obtaining the robes.

I might just break rules and use alts, it's either that or not obtaining them at all.

Unknown Warrior, you are not the only one with this problem. I wonder if people these days are able to get the Mort'ton Quest done (temple building), or the hybrid armours. Even FOG, Soul Wars and Pest Control are dead, Barbarian Assault probably too (even though I didn't check that place).

Most of my Runescape friends are a tight knitted group of people who know each other for 5-10 years, we really depend on each other to get stuff from those minigames.

While I do understand that a lot of these games lost their popularity by better exp/money methods, it's quite concerning there is literally NO one who still plays it. I am not saying the game is dying, but a lack of new players who 'filled up' the leaving playerbase plays a big role in this. I doubt reworks will make them popular again, which is a shame.

I did Temple Treking quest a few weeks ago with no problem. Using the official world there were always 1-3 people there for the whole time I was doing the quest. But yes, something needs to be done about content which is too dead to even start a game. Perhaps put all minigames on an instanced world? I'm sure there are at least a few people out there who don't know about official worlds and just can't find people in whichever world their using. Instanced worlds would force these stragglers to come together.

I believe I read something about a feature in the works that would let you queue up for a minigame or other activity while still doing whatever else in Runescape, then get teleported to the activity on the same world as the others queued up for that game. Much like WoW's dungeon finder.

 

I could be pulling that out of my dreams (don't ask), but I think I read that posted by a jmod somewhere.

Yeah, a week or go, some mod said they are looking into a grouping system for activities, Mod Kelpie in his Team 1 blog I think. :)

@the guy saying it's impossible to get 60k gop tokens...

 

Join "Death Erebus" fc (I assume that is the fc you were referring to that is still running). They run gop games, but they actually play gop meaning it's not 50/50. If you're lucky, they will put thier better players on each team so the game is more fair.

 

Play the game or deal with it.

I never used that fc and I still managed to get my 60k gop tokens for master rc robes.

 

You just need to find f2pers. They are most willing to do gop since it's the best way to make money in f2p at the moment. I know plenty of f2pers who are willing to gop, just gotta find them.

Well now that it's been bumped up again...actually, FoG only takes 8 people now, and a couple worlds manage to run games, from what I hear.  In fact we did a clan event for it yesterday, and it wasn't half bad.  But still, many of them suffer from a huge loss in popularity :(.  And there's a reason that an uncharged blue d'hide coif is the price that it is.

You are allowed to multilog now, provided accounts don't interact in such a way as to abuse gameplay mechanics.  Logging in to EoC and OSRS has always been permitted, but of course you can't do it on the same character.  You can use two different ones though.
