I'm aware of the game clients available for players to use and the pros and cons of using one. I personally only use the official game client provided by Jagex but do feel that third-party clients provide an advantage.

As these clients are to be used "at your own risk", why doesn't Jagex just add some straightforward and key features to the current, official client and prohibit the use of the third-party clients?

Jagex client doesn't need hundreds of updates because runelite tools doesn't improve gameplay and are thus not necessary. Runelite is all about providing tools that give advantages to force players into using their client.

Some tools make challenges like Jad and Inferno easier and and then Jagex must add even harder challenges than the Inferno. Other tools make some content into no brainers, for example mage training arena where the client does the logic for you. These tools should not be there because they are bad for the game.

Everybody should playing on one client with the same tools.

I missed this but that's great to hear.

I agree with Xark's points above. One official game client with basic and helpful (perhaps polled) tools should suffice for all players.

The problem is that osbuddy sucks and runelite uses the vanilla exp drops which suck, and konduit barely gets updated anymore, it's the only client with good exp drops.

Only reason I use third party client is because it has a slightly higher render distance and smoother graphic and distance.another feature I like is the drops highlighted on the floor and xp calculators..those are the main reasons I use runelite and it wouldn't be to hard for the vanilla client to have those..almost 2019 and I feel like little things like this push new players away Veteran player old school to rs2 to eoc to quitting then back to osrs

I can agree with them MILDLY improving the official client.

And then, ban all 3rd party clients.

It's the most sensible solution to this ongoing problem.
