There once was a time where there was 100+ marcos behind varrack castle they were all running on the same program, because it was the only maro program that would work in runescape 100%, these people who made it added a UID to the program, jagex then clamed that they had something to detech UID, the next day there was massive IP bans for the people who used these, I came incounter with this program 2 times, the first time was my friend who used it he got a IP ban, the other was a website where EVERY ONE downloaded it from, the offical web site, my friend gave me the link. I think every one who was at that time think the marcos here and now are nothing compared to the one back then.

how can you be sure they are macroing?



When woodcutting I usually report every lvl 3 with the default clothes and hair, is there any better way to recognise them and be sure? I don't want to be banned by reporting players that are not macroing ...







btw: if the macroers get banned, do they disappear out of the ranking? cause I'd like to get in the woodcutting ranking, but it is kind of hard with al these macroers

Yea, anyone who gets permanantly banned gets removed from the HS (Just look up durial321! :P ). As for identifying macroers, just watch them for a while. If they stay by a stump or mined rock for a while, and if they don't respond to randoms when they come up (sadly, most macroers do respond to randoms eventually :( ), then you can be fairly sure that they're a macroer. Don't worry about reporting people who act like macroers but actually just aren't paying attention. I'm sure Jagex would have some people accidently report non macroers than have no one report macroers because they aren't totally sure.

I know alot of people that work with macros on daily bases whether it's placing time is a document, or rerouting payroll accounts. Macros are not evil as jagex proclaims them to be. In fact World of Warcraft gives you the option to design your own macros in-game.







I think if i developed a simple mouse movement macro I should be allowed to use it. The only problem with this is that jagex says it would give me an "unfair advantage" over others.







Well i think that kids that play all day with no trig homework have an unfair advantage over me... So a simple macro to cut a few trees to make up for lost time should'nt hurt anyone.

You are grossly oversimplifying the issue.... First of all, macroers would let you cut yews all day and all night, something that no one would ever be able to do otherwise. Unfair advantage. Also, YOU'RE not doing any work whatsoever, yet you're getting all, and sometimes even more, of the rewards that people who work hard get. Unfair advantage. Also, Jagex doesn't want people running around downloading free macro programs off the internet when so many sites claim to offer these but are really just designed to steal your passwords. Jagex owns runescape and everything in it. Their rules, no matter how much you disagree with them, are law. If you don't like them, deal with it, or stop playing.

Ok, I really dislike it when I am fishing and I wear noob clothes all the time. I don't macro. I just hate being a big show-off running around carrying Dragon Daggers and Rune Armor and all this show-off stuff.







I can't tell you how many times someone sees me and starts calling me a macro. Usually anyone level 50+ isn't a macro.

They should have a mass ban soon then in tutorial island make you have to tpye a random word in to pass to the next section. It would help prevent autoers a bit.
Quit RuneScape :)

erm i dont know id this is true or not but once, a pmod i knew told me that if u reported someone who's suspected to be a macro, the system will mark him/her.







so i guess they will do something to verify that its a real macroer before they actually take action. So if anyone reported you as a macroer, u dont have to be worried. likewise if u wrongly reported someone as a macroer, he or you wont be penalised.

Macroes have basically killed some of the livelyhood of the RS f2p economy.







Although they keep prices down for lobs and yews, I think they still have a mostly negative impact on the game. I think that Jagex needs to improve the ways in which they detect the third-party clients and such.







I don't report macroes very often, seeing as to I stay in p2p most of the time.

I see them all the time while passing by either catherby or going behind the varrock castle! Its annoying, we work hard getting a good account while they have it automatically(o well they don;t know the fun they are missing).







In this thread, someone has taken a screenshot of themself with about 5 autoers...







and I am going for 54 rc and 75 magic(after 99 thieving) and I had started abit by mining and half the time I was there When I mined about 2k p ess, I saw about 30 autoers.

Spud you seriously have to stay off the forums when you get into the weed.
