I already posted this in the pull suggestion post but wanted to see how people would react to it so put it here to

So normally I do not participate in PVP but I was thinking bots are incredibly annoying, and they are terrible for the economy, so I was thinking how awesome it would be to be able to challenge people to duels, were once the challenge is initiated niether player can take any action until the Challenger cancles the challenge or untill the person bieng challenged either accepts or rejects the challenge (after one minute it is auto accepted), with some little puzzle or something to successfully reject the challenge, that way bots can't auto reject, and if you reject a challenge have a 30 minutes immunity to challenges, if this would be possible it would open a whole new level of PVP content and limit bots and afk players and multi boxers, you could manage a couple accounts but not 20, of course if you don't mind the losses from the carecter deaths it won't matter to you if you get pked but I think most would try to prevent it.
Of course it goes without saying you would not be skulled for making challenges or for fighting duels (the challengie has a whole minute to reject the challenge so it wouldn't make since to punish the Challenger

Everytime I see bots it makes me wish so bad I could just right click and duel... Nobody else feels this way? It would be a good way for PVP loot from kills as well, thier is like 100 bots spinning flax in lumbridge. A pler could get a ton of flax in only a few min. Just saying

I guess nobody likes the idea, I thought pkers would like it, having a couple thousand targets, between bots, afkers and multi boxers, but I guess they probably also multibox or afk skill when they need something so it wasnt really going to go anywhere, fun way to punish bots though

It's not that I don't like the idea, however I don't think this would be something that would be able to counter bot on the long term or in the entire game as a matter of facts.

The way I see it, you're proposing a solution that would only apply to the duel arena, which isn't bad, however I doubt it's where you'll see the most bots or that the bots would literally greef the game. Also, the solution you're proposing sounds like you want to take advantage over the bots at this specific location. (Which I would not support.)

If you want to prevent bots from entering the game perhaps you can suggest, instead, to add a solvable cappa or puzzle to the loggin menu.
The shadow of truth and justice will always triumph.

Bots are bad for the economy, so why would it be a good idea to transfer their resources to PKers? How would that benefit the economy? Botted resources are botted resources before and after a PKer takes them. What would help the economy would be if they were banned while the bot held them so they didn't enter the economy, or if they were banned before they could gain so many resources in the first place.

But if the botters have to pay closer attention to their botts thier will be less bots, and if they just eat the losses then they will loose so many inventories of resources that the money they make will eventually be so low as to not be worth it other way it would reduce botting, yes at first all those resources will just be getting transfered to another player but after a month or so botting should decrease or at least force them to come up with better software, I mean just closing the door to the lumbridge spinning wheel makes the bots run to the wall and just stand thier for a min or so, it would slow them down alot if they were killed maybe only 10 min. But 100 bots all bieng slowed down at the same time and their resources bieng taken will be a big hit to the bot controller, and lumbridge isnt the best example it was just the easiest, thier is bots everywhere doing all kinds of things, if you kill enough bots the bots will stop bieng productive the botters will be loosing money instead of making money
