A new year has dawned and 2012 fades into the past, however our resolve against botters and those who would use exploits to gain an unfair advantage over others has never wavered.

As part of our ongoing war on botting, we continue to take action against those confirmed to be using a bot script. Just yesterday we banned a large number of bot users, including a number of maximum level players.

We want to reconfirm our commitment to the RuneScape community that we are taking steps every day to rid RuneScape of any and all bots. Nobody is exempt from this, whether it’s a fresh account or a paying maxed-out player.

We also detected a small number of players who had engineered an exploit to abuse the God Statues content which was added yesterday. In addition to adding extra security to our code, we’ve permanently banned the accounts which took part and all other accounts associated with those users. Such exploitation is totally unacceptable and we have a zero tolerance policy against any such behaviour. Ultimately those who use bot scripts and abuse exploits are harmful toward the economy of RuneScape, and are not the type of individuals that we want as part of our community.

About time...

'Nobody is exempt from this, whether it’s a fresh account or a paying maxed-out player.'

Could've fooled me.

'A new year has dawned and 2012 fades into the past, however our resolve against botters and those who would use exploits to gain an unfair advantage over others has never wavered'

The guy in the PR department who thought up this rousing sentence should be given a pay raise, very convincing.

I noticed this God Statue Bug earlier. It really gets out quickly. But thank you for posting this. Means a lot to us that you're doing something about these botters and cheaters.

Thank you very much.
