I can relate to BIG CITY. Often I find myself going about my usual chores & absolutely nobody is talking ( except the spam bots of course ). I try to strike up a conversation with anyone around only to be met with silence. Often it's pretty obvious I'm in the middle of a lot of bots who aren't going to reply & that's just depressing. Last night I was relieved to actually be able to get some people TALKING in the runespan. It really helped to make the hours I spent there finishing off my wicked set go quicker. The previous day it had seemed like it took an eternity to earn those points.

Welcome to Pandora also had some very good points. When the citadels first came out I was able to gather up several of my friends & form a clan. By thanksgiving we had over 50 members & a tier 4 citadel. The whole time though I had to continually hastle people with " Have you gotten in your weekly resourses? We have 2 hrs left & don't even have enough in to pay for the upkeep, please come help!" When Thanksgiving hit & people were offline doing their holiday things it became impossible to muster the manpower to keep the citadel afloat & it soon became locked. Since then I haven't bothered reopening it. Frankly it's just not worth the time , effort & headache to try to maintain it. My clans still going, we chat & help each other out using the chat channel & do the occasional event but we've written the citadel off as useless. The avitar did nothing to change that opinion.

Personally I wish they'd give us some way to turn off those stupid ort drops. I'm fighting, get a kill , go to quickly grab the loot before I'm attacked again & lo & behold I end up with even more useless ort in my pack to have to destroy later. :mad:

I have been playing this game for 7 years. I remember before I started my new account (after losing my old one to a hacking) that I was easily making 30-40m a week. But now...I can barely make 5m a week...these bots are rediculous. I am doing slayer a lot...and at times it takes me.....4-5 hours to do a task that any normal person could do in 45 minutes. Here's an example. The other day I got a slayer task of 117 Hill Giants (I am only lv64 with 41 Slayer so I'm using Vannaka) and I went to do it...every world i tried and every spot was so loaded it was not funny...I 2 shot Hill Giants...so it should take me an hour Maximum...not a chance. 5 hours later and I still had 10 to go....it's frustrating. Only good side...was I made a good 13 prayer levels off the task. SO MANY BIG BONES!!

Jagex needs to do something about this. My dad gets Groutworms a lot. He has to go to a world where he can't understand crap...just to be able to do the task. The only other thing that isn't much better...is people advertising gold buying websites. I average around 800 pms about it a day......If Jagex doesn't do something soon....they won't have a game.

Grotworms appear to be the new Green Dragons - Bots everywhere fighting for a worm. Now if only this was an extension to the wilderness & you could manage to kill a few of them........

That's why Jagex created the grotworms. Too many botters were complaining about the real players pking them in the wilderness.

I have to wonder if Jagex is actually TRYING to fight the bots & cheaters. :cry:

Think about it...
They did a bot nuke killing a large number of the veteran bots then reinstigated a trade limit where new F2P bot accounts couldn't move their ill gained GP. What's that do? It causes the new bots that are created to have to pay for membership. Jagex then starts making more profit from the cheaters. With the SOF , Sals store , loyalty rewards & everything else they seem to be pushing to make money it's pretty obvious what they're doing, trying to squeeze every dollar they can out of the game. Allowing the botters & cheaters so long as they're paying for membership just helps Jagex bottom line at least in the short term.

Heck at this point I would no longer be suprised if they weren't actually behind some of the RWTing sites themselves. Who would know if they were?

Sorry but after years of having to fight Jagex's battles for them with little support from the company itself I'm begining to question whether they're actually even in the battle or if it's all for show.

"why was there not a crowd almost 10 times larger arguing for the return?"

Easy, bots don't argue or even speak for that matter. Think about it. Hundreds of thousands of bot accounts were laying around inactive because they couldn't trade their GP away. When a vote comes up do you not think the bot creators would use every one of those accounts to vote themselves back into use?

They didn't NEED to argue, they had it in the bag from the get go by sheer numbers. A real player typically has between 1-3 characters, a botter could have hundreds to vote with. As much as we tried to point out that fact Jagex was going to push the update through anyways & we can see the result.

There also seems to be a conspiracy brewing too. If you think about it Jagex actions appear to have focused on turning the bots into profit. They did the nuke eliminating the veteran bots & put in a trade limit on only new F2P accounts. Mighty suspicious since the bots just moved over to P2P in droves making more money for Jagex isn't it? :?

As for the combat update.... well that's probably what's going to force me out of the game I've played for nearly 10 yrs.. The simplicity of RS combat was the reason I was able to deal with the slow response time of my connection. From my experience with the weekend beta tests it's simple no longer. I'm going be at a real disadvantage compared with someone with a faster connection.

I also find it infurating that I've spent years building up a huge collection of weapons with special attacks. After the update all those special abilities are gone. For example all the godswords would be the same. My seerkull bow which I used to use on mages might as well be a magic short, no wait, a yew short since it no longer has a special attack.

In Topic: How I lost my items - by scamming, dying and others

My worst loss was on a Bork run. I'd just jumped the wilderness wall & was running to the entrance to teh chaos caverns when I was attacked by a pker. Usually I make them regret that decision but this guy was lucky & I lagged just as he attacked. By the time the lagg was over I was standing in deaths house. Lost a Staff of light, a pocketload of runes a full slayer helm & my ragefire boots.
