https://old.reddit.com/r/2007scape/comments/8jw413/daily_reminder_that_osbuddy_used_to_be_a_botting/

Daily reminder that OSbuddy used to be called RSBuddy, a Botting client. Why did jagex hire rule breakers to create a 3rd party client when there's no guarantee the creator won't go rogue and insert spyware/malware/adware?

Daily reminder that 3rd party clients are equally as bad as hiring a botting client
creator. OSbuddy and runelite and runelite+ are cheating clients.

Jagex needs to be accountable for this decision.

I mean they were allowing players to bot their accounts in 2008-09 sooooo If you can't git gud and L2PK, don't cry for the rewards that come from it such as loot boxes filled with resources.

I don't think that Jagex "hired" anyone to make a 3PC, however they do allow 3PCs like OSBuddy and RuneLite to be used. Those that use them are fully aware of the potential risks. Honestly it's way too late to fix it. If there was a time for Jagex to make a stand against 3PC's, that time has long since passed. More than half of those playing the game on PC are using 3PC's now and a good majority of those would probably quit if they were made against the rules now, half way through the game's life cycle. It would be almost as controversial as removing the Wilderness/Free Trade back in the day; not quite, but close. It would fracture the community... again...

I understand and even respect the crusade against 3PC's but it's not worth it, even if you get what you want, the problems you will create won't outweigh the benefits of an OSRS without 3PC's. It's too late.

Jagex definitely did not hire anybody to create THIRD PARTY CLIENTS, otherwise they would not be called THIRD PARTY clients. And don't forget the quote was from an ancient reddit post with references to the ancient time when MMG was the CEO.

OSRS just turn a blind eye on these 3rd party clients, although once last year they said they have initialized some legal actions against them but nothing happened obviously.

Why are they turning a blind eye? I think blame the community that is too afraid to see their "playberbase" dropping to like 20k rather :D

RSBuddy and Jagex swapped employees. If you're gonna tall about something, make sure you're educated on the matter next time. :)

They did not swap employees. MMG hired Mod Jacmob, who was rumored to be one of the owners of RSbuddy. But Jacmod wasn't hired to create any "third party clients". Jacmob left shortly after MMG left Jagex though.

Told you already. They hired Jacmob to work on security and bot detection, not to create any "third party clients" as OP claimed. RSBuddy existed well before Jacmob joined Jagex.
