Id like to put a petition on bringing back the attacking NPC's to help keep the botters and AFKers down.

(Move this post if needed...not sure what topic it would go under.)

Examples:

Evil Chicken
Trent
River Troll
etc.

The randoms failed to stop bots. It was never aimed at afkers, they just occasionally got hit. Why should they bring back something that was a failure to do what you want them to do? Stop being a entitled snowflake. If you want something in game, earn it rather than demand it be given to you.

Support. Even tho i love afking at sand crabs and splashing im ready to take a hit for the integrity of the game.

Yeah it may have failed to stop bots, but bringing it back to make afking/alting harder is fully reasonable, that was never what this game was supposed to be. Imagine actually playing the game.
Dont make easily botted activities such as skilling profitable

I'd support this because I enjoyed these events. I realize the argument against is that it's "xp waste" and annoying -- these are from the efficiency people who completely rule the game now -- which is why we'll never see the "dangerous random events" again.

But no, it won't do anything to combat bots, especially when there's a n hour long timer to get stuff back. It won't hurt them in the least.

It isn't just about efficiency. Its about useless wasted time. All the dangerous randoms can be found if you really want to waste your time with them, but they will not affect people that are trying to kill metal dragons as an example. When most people fight them, they have their retaliate turned on. So your killing a metal dragon and you suddenly get attacked by two creatures using different types of attacks. If you pray against one the other does damage. You cant talk to the dangerous random because you are under attack. Your only option is to run, BUT you retaliate against both of them and so you waste all the time trying to get clear. Most likely you will run into another dragon so the only way to get clear is to tele out of the area with a metal dragon 90% killed.

Waste of time, waste of ammo, runes or what every youre using against the metal, and waste of your pots.

The fact is, the metal dragons was the number one reason people stated for wanting the randoms gone. Other pvm was right behind it.

Because some people like you said they like them, they kept them but in a place that people would not stumble into.
frankly my dear, I couldn't give a dam. never had a river to build one on.

IF jagex wanted to make alting harder, all they would have to do is change the rules again. They don't want to make alting harder because they want the extra income.

Makes it less afk as it should be. If you use overhead prayers when fighting metal dragons (im certain you're talking about iron and steel dragons), you dont know how to fight metal dragons properly. It takes like 10 seconds to run from the far end of metal dragon area to safety, if you die before that you deserve it.
