with the issue of bots in rs3 and os something has always made me wonder, why can't jagex just use captcha in the game to deal with bots? that's what it was partially made for anyway to stop spam and autobots


so why can't we just a system like that to stop or reduce bots? like say every hour or so the player must fill in a captcha to continue to playing

Well RuneScape used to have a system where you had to sleep and type in letters and numbers written all funky-like, but it was removed as bots were able to circumvent it.

And get crap like this?













No thanks.
By the way, robots can circumvent it...



That's juts the tip of the iceberg when looking for "captcha" on Imgur, let alone Google...

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

Errrm - I don't think bots decide to auto login - I think the owner of the bots logs the bot(s) in and leaves them to do their stuff.

Can you see now how Captcha would have zero effect?

the idea is it happens occasionally when playing the game not just login time
