Chapter I: Runelite Invasion

Adam and his team had dared come up with an open source client even more broken with features as obnoxious as menu entry swappers to reduce the number of clicks needed for prestigious skilling content. It was severely devaluing skillcapes on another tier.

They thought they could put RSB in the ground once and for all by offering their client as a free service. This was the key behind his demented strategy to devalue 90% of the game with overlays such as Jad assistors, prayer flicking assistors, Demonic Gorillas plugins, Cerberus overlays, and the list goes on. He understood his target audience. He knew that they weren't against easyscape content but against RWT likely due to being largely unsuccessful in their lives and unable to fit expensive games into their budgets.

For example, they so strongly opposed the Squeal of Fortune yet were perfectly okay with 6 hour afk which is basically just botting. Seeing as they were okay with xp being handed out for free but not paying for xp, the conclusion was obvious. They had to stand out by making their client free of charge. If they met that criteria, they could make it as broken and game-breaking as their heart desired without a care at all in the nubnubby world for game integrity.

The next part of this evil plan was to make it open-source allowing people to abuse inferno helpers to get undeserved infernal capes, ToB plugins (inferno and ToB plugins were supposed to be off limits btw), spellbook resizeable, and PvP macros into discord servers (can't be detected since it's not macroing in-game). This surely would've put OSB in the ground once and for all.
I would much rather anyone PK in game than do so irl. If you wanna get it out, do it on an online platform please. I don't want anyone getting harmed physically. :(

Chapter II: OSB Strikes back

It had been over a year since the Runelite project went live. Most of their customers that they had presumed to be loyal had left them for the free alternative that had far more broken features that resembled botting. What's worse is that they even had overlays such as tile markers and tile indicators to completely alleviate the skill needed for PvM, a part of the game that formerly had held its prestige due to being unable to be botting or given assistance via the use of unsolicited third party clients.

RSB would not accept this. Just like any hero, they understood how life operated. It's not a steady road to progression. It's a bumpy road with ups and downs. Heroes always face major obstacles right before making an enormous comeback to triumph and come out on top. They also had one major skillset over everyone else, the fact that one of their employees worked for Jagex and developed anti-botting software. As a result, they knew that they would need to exploit this as their crucial secret weapon in this intense battle of skilling macros.

This battle was a crucial one. It's what would be deemed as the turning point in the war. OSB unleashed a series of macros that could not be detected by Jagex and their anti-botting software, the same botting software that completely ignored the mobile AHK bots until it was brought to their attention on Reddit and YouTube.

Since Jagex clearly didn't give a shit about the game's integrity issues due to the slowly declining playerbase, it was RSB's time to exploit this. They launched a series of skilling macros and put Adam and the Runelite team into the ground.

Adam was trying to act innocent as if he didn't develop a series of game-breaking plugins that reduced the number of clicks needed to skill drastically such as the menu entry swapper. Although backed by the casual playerbase who hated OSB for charging money without caring about game integrity, we all knew the truth.

They had successfully gotten what they claimed they wanted. They had put everyone on an even playing field yet were still developing broken and obnoxiously overpowered plugins. Why do that if they already evened out the playing field?

RSB Jacmob saw through this and realized that for game integrity, they needed to serve justice in order to restore the game back to an era when accomplishments meant something. RSB would not go down without a fight. They stood up for what was right.
