    Recommended Posts

    From reading around, it seems as though Jagex have some "bot hotspots" in which they ban more frequently than elsewhere. 

    Before I knew this, I wrote a Blast Furnace script automating the whole process levelling from 1-30 and using GE, Bonds etc.

    My accounts have been banned diferrentially on the same IP and I wonder if anyone can pitch in their ideas?



    Account 1 - Main

    High level, many QP, lots of playtime. Ran the script for 3 weeks straight (it does breaks and sleeing automatically) and no ban. Running right now.

    Thus the issue seems neither directly with the script, nor the client - though the former might be a contributing factor to the below bans.

    Account 2 - Newbie

    Fresh off Tutorial Island, used a bond, got banned after 2 days.

    OK so grinding blast furnace on a new account is suspicious, but people have their alts so I don't think it's the fact that it's a new player alone.

    Account 3 - Newbie-ish

    Medium levels, 8 QP, not the first time being a members' account but hasn't been logged-in for a few years. Banned after 2 days.

    Maybe it's to do with the timing of grinding the activity after getting a bond? Or perhaps the script itself is a bit jammy with levelling from 15-30. 

    Further Experiments TBA

    A less nooby F2P account

    Doing other things in-between levelling Smithing 1-30 at BF; improving that part of the script



    Additional result: Trading items to bots seems fine to some extent since the Main which gave them items is unbanned.

    Are they all have the same settings? I'm surprised the main isn't been smacked yet

    Kinda but not exactly. I wrote it such that each character has its own behaviour traits consistent to that character (think mouse movements, action orders, playing times), but otherwise they're doing the same thing.
