Interesting Post By Jagex about botting

Recommended Posts

I quote some of their post here, to me the most interesting part.

 

"

Since 2013 we brought a range of next generation anti-botting technology allowing us to detect all bots within hours with 100% certainty. We ban bots at random intervals a few days after first detection so that they never know exactly how they were detected. A side effect of this is that we see many players who had botted prior, try to appeal their bans as they incorrectly believe they were unfairly banned because they are often playing normally when the ban is applied and therefore think we’ve made a mistake and somehow they managed to get away with historic botting. Bots cannot adapt to this new technology leaving them flawed and at a completely manageable trickle.

 

Finally in September 2013 we began focusing on wiping out Gold Farmers, by introducing Bonds. This, along with constant updating of BotWatch, has kept ‘dodgy activity’ at record low levels, in fact rock bottom in the main game.

 

Happily, the volume of bots and gold farmers is lower than ever however we are not complacent and with the success on the main game we are now working on extending our focus to Old School RuneScape.

"

 

So what I took from this.

 

I went over to powerbot, and anyone who uses their bot gets banned within hours. That is nuts!! But I guess this is because their client is detecable. How else can they detect so fast?

 

The last sentence is the scariest. They are moving their tech to old school. In the past month, I have seen, and be a part of, a HUGE influx of people being banned. And this is quite scary. Gold farmers have always been banned, but the number of people who don't particularly gold farm (maybe just bot on one or two accounts) are getting perm banned!

 

I know 6 months ago, barely anyone got banned. Only the people botting chins or flax.

 

SO it just seems like the future is bleak...

 

also, I am quite confident that this article ISN"T bullshit. Jagex is actually rising above the botting community.

 

I just feel like antiban will have to be SO complex that making scripts won't be worth it. Every player has to have unique antiban (not just mouse movements, or when they will check their stats, beyond that), every player has to be different. My only fear is that the way Trilez is handling this atm is not the best way. Tribot doesn't know how the player plays when he/she isn't botting. Lets say I bot for 5 hours. The bot version of me likes to check stats every few kills. The REAL me never does this (maybe rarely). Wouldn't jagex figure this out? Wouldn't that be suspicious?

 

Just seems like it'll be a HUGE challenge.

 

just some food for thought

This has been brought up in another topic, but I agree they are becoming more effective I also disagree that they'll overcome all the gold farmers/botters. Infact the bonds were a big help to those who don't want to spend real money on bots. I personally have a long account life on my accounts. Infact I used powerbot and for over 10 hours a day with no issues, just less than a month ago.

I personally dont like it when people quote posts from jagex. They seem to take it for fact when in reality it should be taken as more of an opinion than anything else because its obviously biased.

 

They're obviously going to say that they're winning the "war" on bots so there players have more faith in them and intimidate botters. I personally dont believe their botwatch is all that clever. The longest time I've not been banned botting 24/7 was 1 month on old school, this was over december just after trilez updated the client to have more rnadomised mouse movements. Not the most advanced of updates ever.

this is highly believeable seeing as they can download these bots as well simply off google these scripts are open to public.

they can then implament some type of detection because the simple fact they can see how the bot runs and figure what type of interference

it causes. Just think! if you got the bot technology right in front of you why would it not be easy for someone to develop a cure with the amount of money and resources available to them!?!?

"Bots cannot adapt to this new technology leaving them flawed and at a completely manageable trickle."

 

Now that's something a politician might say, if one was interested in rs botting, as they all should be.

It's not stating a fact, it's the same as saying "Bot devs don't have what it takes to beat us.".

They do try to make our life as hard as possible though, that's a fact.

Although that may be true that they could simply get the client and bots.. Even paid bots.. The way its been more randomized and human-like will prevail over their system and what they could do to prevent bots. 

 

Soon enough its will be almost impossible to see the difference between normal players and bots. You may say that you can tell when you talk to someone you thinks botting. But still, legit players might not respond all the time anyways. They could be in a clan chat and have their public and private off. 

 

So I do recommend just joining a clan chat and turning everything else off. 

 

 

But back on subject, 

 

Yeah, Jagex might be able to get the bot technology and study it and the movements and what have ya, but with the randomized and unique features that is different for each user using the client it would still be very difficult.

 

Just saying..

Nope. It's called adapting. Even though jagex still has the upper hand, always.

 

It's called not living in the past when Jagex did nothing.

It IS a different ball game now, period, gone are the days when we had the upper hand, because as you just pointed out, Jagex have the upper hand now and actually give a shit.

I could run a 50 FDK farm years ago and not even get touched once in 9 months running 24/7, we had the upper hand because Jagex didn't give a fuck, now they do they are in control, not us.

  • Our picks

    • Gradle is a build tool used to accelerate developer productivity.

      We recently setup a Maven repository (TRiBot Central) to make it easier for scripters to create scripts. Check it out here: https://gitlab.com/trilez-software/tribot/tribot-central/-/packages

      Furthermore, we've released a simple Gradle project to make it easy to run TRiBot and develop scripts for it. Check it out here: https://gitlab.com/trilez-software/tribot/tribot-gradle-launcher

      The goals of TRiBot Central are to:

      Deliver updates to TRiBot faster


      Better organize TRiBot's dependencies (AKA dependancies)


      Make it easier to develop scripts for TRiBot


      Make it easier to use and run TRiBot


      Note: TRiBot won't be able to run scripts from within this project until TRiBot's next release.

    • Hi everyone,

      I'd like to thank everyone for their patience in this transition period. Since last week, we've worked out the remaining bugs with this integration.

      Some users have still been having issues with connecting their forums account to their Auth0 account. To resolve this, we've imported all forums accounts into Auth0.

      Unfortunately, the accounts which were imported today were using an unsupported password hashing algorithm. Hence, random passwords were set during the import.

      What does this mean for me?

      If you've previously linked your forums account to your Auth0 account, you don't have to do anything. Nothing changes for you.


      If you haven't logged in via our new login yet,

      Try logging in with your forums email address and the last password you used


      If you are unable to login, please use the "Forgot password" tool on the login page:
      Follow the instructions to reset your password

    • Hello everyone,

      Last week we tried to roll out Auth0 Login, but we lost that battle. Now it's time to win the war!

      Important changes

      When logging into the client, you'll now have to enter your Auth0 account credentials instead of your forums credentials

      Note: 2FA is still handled through your forums account (for the time being)



      Changes for existing users

      You'll have to link your Auth0 account to your forums account here: https://tribot.org/forums/settings/login/?service=11


      Auth0 accounts have been created for most existing users. Please use your forums email address and password to login.



      Important notes

      Make sure to verify your email address upon creating a new Auth0 account


      When we mention your Auth0 account, we mean your account used for auth.tribot.org as displayed below

    • To better support the upcoming changes (TRiBot X, new repository), we're switching our login handler to Auth0. Instead of logging in with the standard form, you'll now be required to login through our Auth0 application.

      All existing accounts which have been used within approximately the past year have been imported into Auth0 using the same email and password combination which has been stored on the forums.

      What does this mean for users?

      Your account credentials are now even more securely stored


      You'll be able to login via Facebook, Google, and others in the future


      Is there anything users have to do differently now?

      Existing users: You'll have to login with the standard login, open your Account Settings, then link your Auth0 account


      New users: You'll be redirected to our Auth0 app (auth.tribot.org) where you'll be able to create an account


      Why was this change made?

      The new apps we are creating (such as the new repository) aren't able to use the forums to handle user logins


      To centralize all user accounts in one area


      To ensure that the client login doesn't go down when the forums are having problems


      To speed up our development


      Other considerations

      There's no documentation or official support for using Invision Community combined with Auth0, so there are still a few kinks we're working out


      We're in the works of creating an account management panel specifically for Auth0 accounts (ETA August)


      It's not possible to change email addresses for the time being (this will be resolved this August)


      Changing passwords is a weird process for the time being. To change your password, you'll have to use the "Don't remember your password" tool on the Auth0 login page

    • Over the past month, we've been working hard on TRiBot's new repository - a much needed update. This change has been deemed necessary for TRiBot X, and will allow us to really speed up development of all aspects of TRiBot.

      Today we are going to share what we've been working on!


      Now you must be wondering what kind of features the new repository will have.... well, you'll have to be patient for a little while longer. We're still figuring out various technical aspects so we can't provide answers to all possible questions. We're also focusing on development rather than writing about it so that everyone can get access to our latest developments at lightning speed. I will however answer a few users' questions.

      We're planning on a release of this early to mid August, giving users some goodies before TRiBot X's release.

      Thank you all for being patient. I hope everyone is excited as much as I am!
