Buy OSRS Gold

Jagex thinks this stops goldfarming?

Recommended Posts

  • 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.

I know this is an old update by jagex, but still, is it just me or has goldfarming become more profitable due to bonds? I can buy a bond for 2.5m and make that back in less than a day..

My theory- 

 

Some gold farms would use their gold buyers credit cards to purchase membership, and then the customers would file a claim and jagex would have to return the money. They were losing money by this, so by having legitmate players buy bonds through their site, they could insure the payments by connecting their accounts to the buying and gold farmers can now purchase membership via ingame.

It's a lot simpler than that; Jagex just wanted players to be able to purchase RSGP through them rather than through 3rd party sellers.

As a matter of fact: 

 

Jagex does not want to eliminate goldfarmers.

 

The only reason Jagex keeps telling that they will stop bots is because Jagex wants the admiration of the legit players.

 

Goldfarmers give Jagex huge profits and revenue each year. Even when buying bonds, Jagex still wins real world money, because someone has to buy bonds with $ to add them in game:

 

Goldfarmers buy a lot of bonds >>>  bond price rises >>> stupid players buy with real money to sell bond at high price >>> jagex cashes in the money

 

It's that simple.

 

This guy has smacked it on the head. 100% the facts.

Bonds cost $6 lmfao, obviously we pay $2.50-$3.00 of gold for them, but some tard is paying $6 for that bond, you are indirectly paying $6 for 14 days of membership to jagex.  Cheaper membership for us, higher profits for them, and they get to actually ban us quicker and make it look like they want to stop goldfarmers (so we do have to do more work now and make more accounts because of it)

Yes, that also leaves no trace of a credit card (10 accounts linked to the same card).  I don't know if they actually track that but it's best to not associated any of your bots with each other.

In theory someone has to be buying the bonds from jagex or none would be traded on the grand exchange. If no ones selling bonds and gold farmers are trying to buy them the price is going to skyrocket and all a sudden it will be cheaper to buy a bond from jagex than it is ingame.

 

Constant demand for bonds means there will be a supply which means jagex is selling bonds to someone lol

  • 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!
