Been lvling stats at sandcrabs and have been looking up other players stats when bored. Been noticing many lvl 1 all stats but then 40 attack, 85+ str . To me this is a clear sign of a bot, am I wrong?

Because of the stats, you think they're bots but maybe not! One person could bot or playing legit doing multi logging! You can however report suspected bots in-game or via this forum thread! My goals and achievements on F2P accounts! ---> Thread! <---

They're not bots they're people hand leveling accounts to sell. I know what you mean though they all have brine saber, obby cape, full iron etc. And they have 14 agility from doing some quest that gives you att xp. I dont think there's anything you can really report them for. I used to think they were bots and reported them for macroing. But then I saw one talking and I realized what was going on.

I know what you mean but this one was having conversations. When bots try to cover they just blurt out random gibberish. People that sell accounts will try to market theirs as hand leveled. And they always sell them like in templates so they can mass sell accounts as like only 70 range, or 40 att 70 str 70 range. 40 att 70 str. Just have templates like that and hand level these accounts so they dont get banned. And they all have 1 def because 90% of accounts being sold are are a edgeville pking build. Only way you could stop them is when they transfer the account but they're careful about it and try to just give them the email they use to log in.

It seems like a viable place to train combat without any skill requirements - I'm not sure what's inherently wrong with that in itself. Are there bots? Quite possibly - the ingame report option exists for a reason. But for the most part, there's little wrong with making a fresh alt account and training combat there without getting experience in anything else first.

This is why I don't support the updates to give people a way to make more money in BH/edgeville pking. The seller will never get in trouble for leveling or selling these accounts. Even if a mod was there and saw one of these account sellers, he couldn't even do anything about it because they haven't technically broken a rule. And yet there they still are, taking up sand crabs and space. Even if the system locked the account if it detected something fishy, it would only effect the person who tried to buy the account and they'd lose their money.

All it does is help support the account selling market. They should buff deep wildy stuff like rev caves because at least that is something regular accounts can take part in. Buffing BH pking only helps people who sell acounts and gold. I know that people with maxed pures could of just gotten someone to powerlevel and do quests for them. But at least it's better than people just straight up mass producing edgeville pking accounts.
