I honestly dont play alot of OSRS. I am not pretending to.

my question to OP talking about outdated game etc.. when it was updated
the community went all to hell about it .. that is how we got OSRS to begin
with.

I think that to keep pple from being confused about what is allowed and not.

Jagex needs to say all 3rd party clients need to go.

Everyone has diff opinions though.
My main reason about this. as I post and help in the community led account
help alot, I see people post constantly about being banned but they didnt
know that this part of a 3rd party client was bannable. And insert whichever
add on you want to insert.. seen most of them.

Sad to see ppeople get banned out of confusion about what is or is not
allowable.


I have never agreed with allowing 3rd party clients into the game in the first place. There is a reason why it was banned in rs2. By banning 3rd party clients, you effectively:

- Encourage people to exercise vigiliance on their account security, that their time investment mean something. It would be sad to be phished and losing the majority of the results from the time investment.

- Does not promote risky convenience. Encourage level-playing field.

- Remove confusion (the grey area) and keep it black & white, saves people's effort to educate players.

- Reduction in dealing with hacked account in customer support, because people educated on what to do, what not to do. So less fraction of customer support cases involving hacked accounts due to compromisation of security.

- Balance the game the way it was originally designed in mind. Not balanced around unnatural features that 3rd party clients provide.

- In alignment with how rs2 look organic and natural to play, without the 3rd party client overlays and possible cheats to enable people to access information not intended by the game.

- Show people that this game is worthy of respect for it's integrity in it's gameplay.

In short, direct the game and the company by acting with integrity and vigiliance. This way, not only a company is respected, but also deserves the price tag on it. Value long term commitment to integrity, and the company will attract the right investors and customers to keep investing their effort and money onto it.

Moral of the story: Keep doing things with integrity, rather than out of convenience, don't have to keep experiencing teething problems.

Jagex offering a client (or different clients) with a few more advanced options isn't a bad idea.

Jagex allowing full modification of their client is a terrible idea. Jagex should not attempt to compete with third party clients that intend to break the game. Third party client's goal are to bend the rules as much as possible without outright breaking them. They'll just keep pushing the limits every time Jagex deems something worth banning.

These clients possess the ability to exploit the game's code to reveal information that is otherwise impossible to obtain in-game. For example, barrows minimap, or revealing portal order in pest control, or raid scouting, etc. It also renders content obsolete, for example, why would you use an amulet of nature when you can just check every farm patch status remotely using a client plugin?

It's cheating, plain and simple.


Very objective, and impartial stance.

Understanding the series of problems and drama Jagex/Osrs faced since day 1 of OSRS in 2013. No doubt this is true, and people need to understand better than bash you with what they think convenience is always the right way.

OP of thread: Rafa Sol Br

I believe in order to retain the right players, and attract the right players in the long run, so that the game won't die a slow painful death.

This means time investment to develop things for the long term integrity from the start, not halfway while it's developing. An analogy would be: If you build a bridge and the bridge collapse due to error of calculation in engineering, would you continue building the bridge over the pillars with defects, OR would you demolish the pillar and rebuild it with a stable foundation?

It's also constructing a building from foundation, thenfloor by floor. Or otherwise it'll come to a point the building is unstable, you gotta demolish and rebuilt, which cost energy and effort.

Definitely OSRS vanilla client needs a priority upgrade, that has to be Jagex's responsibility and not 3rd party people to fill in the gap. It looks bad on the company that takes easy way out.

Loving the feedback right now. Not like it means anything to Jigglyplex though. Draft dodger btw. Too scared to attack an enemy that tried to harm my loved ones so "I only learned to defend". Typical boomer born right after the era where my parents suffered the solitude of WWII, deprivation of the Great Depression while I never had to suffer jack or risk a thing. :)
