Something definitive regarding multiple accounts on 1 IP

Recommended Posts

I've wanted to run several accounts on one IP for obvious reasons but I also haven't for obvious reasons. But does anyone have confidence that running multiple accounts on IP at the same time doing the same thing won't lead to more bans (up to a point). If not or if so, give me some of your anecdotal experiences with it.

The theory is running accounts on different IPs reduces the amount of chain bans. Chain bans is the idea of if one account is caught, all the others botting at the time on that associated IP will also be banned. This has been twisted throughout the years and many people will claim if you get banned on an IP, that IP is now flagged and you have a higher chance of being banned if you continue to bot on that IP. In my experience and many others, this is not true. 


With that being said, I have ran multiple accounts on the same IP and had only one of them banned and not all of them chain banned so it pretty much comes down to your own experiences and what you think is truth or not.

I've encountered that too, had 4 accounts on the one computer and only one got banned.

The more accounts that connect from the same address, the higher the probability that the said network is used to run a bot farm. We cannot know for sure which factors are taken into account for identifying bots, but it's safe to assume that the number of accounts per address is definitely one of them. It's the easiest thing to track (besides the average time spent in game), and it could also provide useful insight because after a certain number (i.e. 50), it becomes painfully obvious that you are running a bot farm.

That doesn't mean that you will get banned solely for this, but every additional account that you run from the same address is taking you further and further away from the average legitimate RuneScape player that only runs 1 account for no more than 2 hours every day.

Knowledge about account suspension procedures is an internal Jagex secret, nobody here will give you a conclusive answer. All we can do is speculate and run empirical tests.

In my experience, there are multiple simultaneous factors that go into increasing account ban risk. While accounts probably don't get banned solely on IP blackmark, it does increase the likelihood of chain bans. As most people have experienced, bans don't always get chained, but they do happen more often on one-IP farms, especially if that IP is hosted in a datacenter.

If you have multiple potentially sick people (bots that could possibly get banned) in the same room (IP address), the possibility of an outbreak (chain ban) increases as you add more people. Splitting the people into different rooms (using multiple IP addresses) reduces the risk of an outbreak as the number of rooms increases, until there's no risk of outbreak at 1 person per room.

Very colorful analogy, but it works in this case.

How's the weed? :)

    • Over the past few months, I’ve been working diligently on a new project - TRiBot X. Everything has been written from the ground up, with all of the best practices of software engineering. Every aspect of TRiBot has been re-imagined to support three main goals: flexibility, useability, and reliability.

    • TRiBot is looking to improve a lot of its customer relationship management, customer on boarding process, customer experience, design elements, community engagement and pretty much everything else you can imagine when it comes to marketing.

      Our goal: To ensure that the marketing done TRULY reflects the experience and does not shine an inaccurate light on what TRiBot is lacking in.

      So I ask, what do you love about TRiBot and what do you hate about TRiBot? What does O S Bot, Rune M8, PowR Bot and Dre amBot do better? (yes I purposely didn't spell it right 😂).

      Love,

    • Over the last three weeks, I've been working on upgrading our server infrastructure. It's finally ready and is now live!

      Why?

      Increased reliability - less server errors


      Increased availability - less downtime


      Increased security - keeping us and you secure


      Increased capacity - ability to serve you better


      Increased speed - less waiting for things to load


      Faster development - server and service updates will come faster


      What are the changes?

      Move from a single AWS EC2 instance to AWS ECS (Elastic Container Service)


      Distributed computing


      Load balancing


      Git management of server files and filesystem


      Redis caching


      How?

      AWS ECS (with 10 EC2 instances)


      AWS ElastiCache (Redis)


      AWS Load Balancing


      AWS EFS (Elastic file system)


      Please bare with us as I continue to tune the server for maximum performance. Slow loading speeds may occur temporarily. I thank everyone for their patience.

      Please post on this thread if you experience any issues other than slow loading times.

    • This release will:

      Fix prayers and world hopper API (Thanks @JoeDezzy1 and @erickho123)


      Improve banking API (Thanks @Encoded)


      Adds methods for returning and using Java Lists, rather than arrays


      Slightly randomizes some hardcoded behaviour


      Removes sleeps from waitConditions; the efficiency saving potential is negligible in these use-cases, therefore cleaner code is preferable


      Other back-end improvements





      Note: If you are using LG, please restart both the RS client and TRiBot.
