Just make the area outside of the bank PK-able. The risk would disincentivize wasting excess time scouting. The ditch is gonna get endless repolls while sand buckets can pass the first poll and never be implemented. After the ditch passes the 7th poll attempt, it'll be implemented an hour before the poll closes because it's actually important. Deal with it.

Why not? Gimme an actual reason besides the fact that you're frightened of PKers. The ditch is gonna get endless repolls while sand buckets can pass the first poll and never be implemented.

You mean aside from the fact that people coming out of raids they just finished, possibly carrying their rewards, are then subjected to a wave of attacks from envious losers who aren't good enough to put in the effort themselves and just want to steal it from everyone else?

You mean aside from the fact that the wilderness already exists and you could just go PK there?

You mean aside from the fact that this would punish everyone doing raids, even those who aren't scouting, as the area outside the bank is not exclusive to people who are scouting?

You mean aside from the fact that Jagex is already taking other steps to discourage scouting?

You mean aside from the fact that scouting isn't really that big of a deal and could be more properly addressed by buffing easy rooms so they're more balanced and the order you get doesn't make much difference?

You mean aside from the fact that this wouldn't actually stop scouting, it would just encourage people to do it without their armor on so if they get killed they don't lose anything?

I don't know... I guess I don't really have a reason. I guess because I'm afraid of PKers? No, wait... I'm not afraid of PKers, I just don't willingly let myself become their victim.
I'll keep score from now on.

Risk for reward. If you're frightened of PKers, you don't have to do the easyscape 8-9m/hr. If anything, it seems like anyone who opposes this integrity fix is just a loser envious of PKers who are actually good at the game and capable of risking unlike PvMers who only tend to do brainless content for obnoxiously high gp rates not to forget about the fact that most of them are incapable of actually PvMing and need to rely on third party clients to PvM for them..

Correct. The wilderness exists. Why don't we just toss the entry inside the wilderness?

This isn't "punishment". This is a balancing act just as the Zulrah nerf balanced its ridiculous and overpowered profits. By that logic, you may as well consider the Konar nerf to be a "punishment" more so than a balancing act.

Scouting is a big deal. Only noobs who are incapable of raiding without it use that cheap excuse. This isn't true for everyone, but it's usually the PvMers who are so trash at the game that they can't even beat the inferno that use this excuse and would be incapable of raiding if scouting wasn't a thing.

Then, I have a suggestion. The more you risk, the higher your scouting RNG should be for the better rooms.

You don't have to willingly let yourself be their victim. You could grow a pair and fight back for once rather than being so frightened of them due to the fact that you're spoiled rotten by the risk-free death mechanics that've been ongoing for years and feel entitled to the 15m/hr risk-free PvM without having any real credentials to warrant it.
Since luring nubnubs into the wilderness to be victims won't work, we should force them to anti-PK by preventing them from leaving the wilderness until they PK a couple of targets.
