Is there a possibility of perhaps more ban cycles or anti-botting measures that can be done in the F2P worlds?

Yes it is FREE to play and people aren't paying for premium features.
But the amount of bots in F2P worlds are astounding, in the oceanic servers they easily outnumber players.

I'm trying to play on a F2P only ironman and EVERY world is competed against with bots.
No exaggerations - EVERY world is taken up by hundreds of bots.
It's making it impossible to level the mining skill in F2P.

^ Are you trying to mine iron rocks? Or coals? Try wilderness without equipments and you get fast mining xp and no bots and competitors! Mine and drop and repeat! And report bots!
My goals and achievements on F2P accounts! ---> Thread! <---

Hello, long time fan here since the 2000's.
So I've discoved in my spare time how to kill bots by not really touching them in the area where you can't fight other players, simply by using the monsters in the game. While I was mining for coal at Al Kharid mining site, I got fed up by the bots taking all the coal and iron. I've noticed that the low level bots have a pattern of hide in a certain area of rocks to avoid contact with the scorpions. Naturally my curiosity kicked in and I wonder what would happen if I lured the scorpion towards the bots. How I got this to happen was by attacking the scorpion once then having them follow me toward the area where the bot was hiding, it actually attacked the bot an endding up killing them, I've been doing this for a while now everytime I see those bots. Overall an interesting discovery and it's the small things that you learn that makes this game better by getting ride of those bots. I want to thank anyone who takes the time to reads this and also tries this out on their spare time.

From what Ive seen, Barbarian coal tends to be not as bad as there are only 1/2 players most of the time.

Of course we hope bots are banned, but if nothing can be done about that in the meantime, please read the crap below (if you are not very familiar with OSRS, just came outta members, or was simply on hiatus, I hope it helps you).

My recommendation for escaping bots is to simply get into 500/750 worlds, as they usually feature less population.
If you really have too much trouble doing mining, you can do other skills to bump your total free levels and enter 500+ worlds first, from there a lot of people go into the mining guild instead of the Barbarian coal rocks or basically any other mining spot (there are 1 gp iron stacks from Hendor in the mining guild, which means almost free fast smithing mats once your mining hits 60).

1. Wood/fire in the Varrock area to 30 then Willows by Draynor bank. (Maples are only accessible in the Corsair Cove resource area post Dragon Slayer, but you can get almost guaranteed Yew trees in that area)
2. Buy 1 Needle, kill 25 cows for cowhide, buy 5 thread, tan, craft, and sell to general store (recommend finishing Prince Ali first, since this going back and forth Lumbridge and Al Kharid)
3. Fishing/cooking by the Barbarian fire spot, is highly afk, the fire never goes out, BUT you need at least level 20 fishing/cooking (if you hate getting feathers go kill the Evil Chicken in the champions guild if you have to)
4. Hill Giants in the Edgeville Dungeon, also because this is the only way you can get STR pots anyway via Limpwurt

Tbh, you probably know about most of these already...zzz, GL
