How Coronavirus Effects Jagex, Botting, and Bans

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

I just started botting like a week ago or so because my roommate was nagging me to play osrs again due to the fact that we've played and beaten every other video game we own. I haven't played in almost a decade, and when I did last, I botted a very tiny amount. I decided I was going to finally get a 99 in something and am currently 75 in mining (1/2 bot / 1/2 legit). I have been almost constantly logged on (a couple of nights I just stayed off) for the duration of this past week. I've been running it while I sleep (I'm east coast time btw) from around 11 PM   -   7 AM  give or take, play for like 4 hours manually, log off and have lunch or workout, maybe watch something, and then come back and play for another 5 - 6 hours. I'll then eat dinner around 7 PM or so while I begin a couple more hours with the bot. I usually play for another couple hours before bed, and then I either turn it off, or set it to go overnight. 

That has been my routine for the last week since I've began, and I was wondering what effect the pandemic might have on Jagex, botting, and bans overall. Should this be thought of like an extended weekend? Where Jagex is mainly relying on its' auto ban and botwatch? Is it possible breaks don't matter at least right now if you use the right bots because everybody is stuck at home and it is no longer unrealistic to see someone play the same game all day long?  I use LG all the time (I'm only botting mining to get my 99, then I'm going legit as I just wanted a skill cape), and I'm currently using A2 Miner runite version (great script by the way), and am also running this on my main account. I mainly bot MLM top floor so I'm not super concerned about being reported. I also have made sure to break up some of my daytime play sessions to do quests or diaries as well as raise other skills. I participate in conversations as I babysit half of my botting, utilize the mouse wheel zoom, and do janky mouse movements every now and then. 

Obviously there's always a chance of being banned, but honestly I'm surprised I haven't been as I have been certainly taking advantage of all my free time and botting about half of my day.

I left in all the details because as I stated, I basically got into botting a week ago and found it hard to find a great deal of information on this stuff that is centralized and figured maybe this could help someone else who might be looking for this info. These are all tips I've picked up from here or there, but mostly here.

    • 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 😂).

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


      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


      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.
