@Shteve said in So bans seem to be pretty consistent from client to client. Are we any closer to figuring out what's causing them?:
@Gulp How do you pay for membership? I remember back in the day before bonds they would flag payment methods too.
Also I can fairly confidently say botting long hours doesn’t have an impact as I’ve got an old account that’s been running 24/7 since last Friday. The main difference with this account is that it’s had multiple memberships in the past, is an old account and didn’t bot tutorial island. Also it’s an old test account so it has a few legit playtime hours and was created on the same IP it’s played on, I think that’s a key factor.
I’ve tried a few different ways. I usually use a different method each time, as to not have them link my CC or something to my botting. So I’ve done mobile, PayPal, and CC.
I don’t think it’s the long hours either. Since legit players play long hours all the time.
Every account I’ve botted I’ve leveled and quested manually since they have all been mains or pures. Sometimes they last a month, sometimes they last a week. With the only difference between them being the scripts I use. So I’m pretty sure that’s where they get you.
Maybe the quality of the script you’re using is just higher or takes something into account that others don’t. That’s my theory at least. Dax creates some quality stuff though.
My recent ban on Rspeer was after less than a week of botting. After having quested the account and gotten some good base stats (like 30 in most things, and quest requirements)
I know Rspeer is doing testing with bans, would be nice to know if they’re gaining any useful info. Obviously they can’t share the info since that would alert Jagex, but still.
