hello,

I am here because a while ago my account was banned. Since then, i made a new account and continued on with life. As i was not doing anything wrong before i took extra precautions to prevent a future ban. I try to talk to people often, and limit my exp gain. For a while I havent played, and was planning to get back on. I want to know some ways the prevent banning before i put in my time and effort again. I like to grind hard and make things my self rather than buying it for the GE, so it might seem like i would be marcoing but i really never used any form of bot or help. Only used rs approved quest helps. Please let me know how to prevent another unrightful ban.

Well something triggered an alert to Jagex in order for your ban.

One thing is for sure though, your mistaken assumption it was to do with not talking or the amount of legitimate XP gained is one of those RS myths and a fallacy.

Do you use any other game aids such as client, programs, key remaps etc. at all?

You're completely safe if you follow the rules, there's a link to them at te bottom of the page. The RS Wiki needs a hand, and Bwian's will gladly take the rest of your body!

This has made a lot of people very angry and been widely regarded as a bad move.

Simply follow the rules and you won't be banned.

Not talking and excessive experience gains won't get you banned. If they did, JaGex would have a field day over DXP weekends, wouldn't they?

Play the game how you like, don't feel like you have to limit yourself or talk all the time. If you were banned, it would have been for a legitimate reason, and not what you have highlighted here.

I'll echo what others have said:

Not talking does not get you banned.
Large amounts of XP gain and hours played doesn't get you banned.

What gets an account banned is:
Using reprogrammable mice since that may be detected as a macro.
Using any macro/bot will get an account banned, that includes AutoHotkeys.

Sometimes if you did nothing wrong, it might be your account was hijacked and the hijacker could have played on OSRS or on RS3 and cheated, and you might not have noticed if you played on only one of the two games.

Sometimes trading an account that botted can get your account banned, or someone using the same computer or IP could have cheated and possibly traded your account.

Using anything to press keys or play for you even if its a fan holding a pencil to press a button over and over every time it turns would be considered cheating.

Basically, if your account was banned something triggered the anti cheat heuristics, and you need to figure out what that was. It has nothing to do with XP gained or not talking though, it has more to do with key presses and mouse movement being different than what a real human would usually do.

A person even if trying to time key presses exactly will sometimes be slower and sometimes faster, so there is variation. A macro or bot will be unvarying, the same timing always, or make strange jumps with the mouse pointer that a human using a normal mouse won't.

So something is acting like a macro or bot, either you are using something you shouldn't, or your account was hijacked and the hijacker used something to cheat, or you are one of the rare people who are so robotically efficient your keypresses have no variation so you look like a bot even if you aren't one.

thank you guys. i do follow all the rules. but i do spam the attack button when im in a place with multiple enemies to get more kills at once. i guess other people see that and think its a bot cause im jumping from enemy to enemy and mining at the same time. but all done by me. no bot or any thing against the rules. i even play on a laptop with the touchpad so its not easy to move around like it would be on a desktop.

honestly jagex needs to confront people before banning them. not everyone likes to cheat. ive been playing for 10+ years, always been a low level, but enjoy every second of it. grinding is fun, and you guys just throw our accounts away. all the time and membership money spent for an unjust ban. do better jagex. and remember, its just a game guy, doesnt be so harsh.

Have you tried an appeal? Its rare but sometimes mistakes happen with bans.

You can appeal once only so make sure to read the full page about bans and make sure you use the appeal wisely since you won't get a second appeal.

Also it can take up to a month but you might get an answer in only a few days.

If you already appealed once, you will not get any reply ever to additional appeal attempts.

Here is the link:

https://support.runescape.com/hc/en-gb/articles/115002238729-Account-Bans

You can also find the page yourself in the RuneScape support pages.

why would you limit your xp gain?

i gained 1.4b xp last year. im not banned for macroing. you dont get banned for gaining a lot of xp.

to prevent yourself from being banned dont break rules... its that simple


EDIT

what? are you sure you are playing runescape? that doesnt make sense. thats not how it works

also spam clicking is allowed you wont be banned for spam clicking

the bot detection system jagex has implace is sophisticated. to know when someone is spam clicking and botting

No matter how much or how precisely you spam click it will never match the rigid and consistent repetitiveness of a macro script.
Jagex can detect the difference very easily.
