Rule-breaking and the role of a fansite

21 June 2011 - 04:53 AM

For the last several years and more recently with the return of free trade, players breaking rules (RWT, Scamming, Auto typing, Botting...etc) has become a normal sight in RS and most of the actors of the game (Jagex along with their customers) have made it quite clear through their actions (or lack of...) that this situation is acceptable and unworthy of harsh punishment.

Over the last months, countless threads about bots were created by exasperated players and lately have been locked on the grounds that an "obscure" sticky in the rants section is quite enough to deal with this "minor" issue has some posters would put it.

With this trend in bot-apologists and gold-farming apologists in our community, we find ourselves looking inward and asking ourselves: this is what this game has become, what now?

What now indeed! Given the lack of effort to enforce the rules by Jagex. Given the state of mind of the community towards taking short cuts to access the "fun" game. Given the state of mind of TIF's administration concerning bot whinners, here's what I'm aksing the community today:

- Should Tip.it start supplying guides to botting, gold-farming and how to sell/buy gold online, provide autotypers for merchant in W1/W2?

To bring back some of the arguments for eliminating the rules for those of you who are unaware:
- Bots were always there and will always be there (why not make it so everyone gets access to them more easily?)
- Players should not feel that their achievements are devalued by what other players are doing (be it botting or RWTing) because this is after all a game and not a chore
- A fansite should help players achieve their goals in everyway possible, especially when the game creators don't enforce their outdated rules...

Obviously, these changes would mean that Tip.it renounces its special platinum or gold status or whatever Jagex are calling "safe fansites" and this is obviously not an option.

Let's say we go hypothetical from now on...
- Should Jagex remove their rules?
- Should Tip.it be more lenient on rule-breaking?

Expected april's fools?

22 March 2011 - 01:48 PM

As some of you may have experienced, Jagex likes to toy with us this time of year. Everyone that played in 2007 remembers the dreaded cabbage month of april 2007 where the no-cooking pures had to raise their cooking to lvl 5 in order to equip the cabbage armor set!

What kind of april fools are you expecting this year? Free-trade reversal? Release of the Sailing skill? The sacking of MMG and the hiring of Donald Trump as CEO of Jagex?

Btw, here's the link to the 2007 april behind the scenes : http://forum.tip.it/...age__hl__cabage

Please note that these guys drop accursed ashes.

Edit : Death spawn is the right name

Juju farming potion

I have a feeling that the 5 minutes timer until this potion wears off keeps ticking when you are not logged in (unlike antifire potions ...).

I will test this more thoroughly in my next runs and post my findings here.

weapons and XP rates vs waterfiends

26 December 2010 - 10:35 PM

Hello guys and girls.

Just wondering if the introduction of the dragon defender has changed the optimal set-up to use when killing waterfiends.

I know the ranks of best set-up prior to the release was something like : Chaotic Maul > SS > Z Spear > Chaotic Rapier with def > whip with def...

Here are my questions, keeping in mind dragon defender is used when training with a 1 handed weapon:

What's the new best set-up starting from best to worst, including 1 handed and 2 handed weapons.

What are the expected XP rates from each set-up.
