All the people saying that nobody should care what happens in Runescape, that ethics doesn't matter, etc are people that are likely participate in these tasks, and are not great at all to the RS gold longevity of this game. Where do they draw the line? "Who cares if there's 100 bots at every place, its only a game""Who cares if skills got shifted to 2m xp each hour, it is just a game""Who cares if jagex cares about Runescape and didn't conduct it into the floor, it is Only a game"
I really don't get these people at all. "I'm going to voluntarily play this game which I am already aware is all about grinding, but think of how I do not have time to perform the grinding I know exists in Runescape I am deciding to playwith. No, I will not quit and find a match that better suits the lifestyle I've and also the hours I am able to play, I will make sure Jagex caters to me"
It is honestly too easy, and people get away with these"crimes" without repercussion. Jagex needs to increase their detection and prevention, that's the only solution.
Vote with your wallet, I've quit playing runescape about two years ago today because I did not need to commit all of my time into a game where someone else can either steal all of my progress or accomplish these same achievements via botting or paying someone else. The people would pay someone to play with their account. Then they eventually got their wish in RS3.
If you guys have been playing since OSRS discharge and STILL are not maxed (7 years btw). Because spending 3,000 hours 4 weeks of IRL time getting stats in a game isn't a life priority for them. 4 months isnt the best way to show this. Nobody can use 24 hours in a day. It'd be 6 weeks and two weeks of nothing but OSRS if one were to play.
And averaging playtime is hard you overlook a day you would need to do double to means. Maxing isn't even appealing with just how much work it takes. I've observed mudkip on YouTube begin an ironman per month or 2 before me and maximum in about a year, he's since started an ultimate ironman that's going towards max while I am still in the midgame. He is playing with all the same content for the cheap RuneScape gold time, making exactly the same jokes and commentary and it just seems like a huge waste of time. I watch his movies sometimes because I used to really enjoy them but today it just seems sad.
