Hey guys, I thought I'd just post this list of the top three things I think plague pking in 2019. I didn't really feel like fleshing it out. Just wanted to put out a quick bullet point guide of my ideas of what is bad. Feel free to try to refute each point so we can have a discussion.

1. NPC Boxing

-allows for gold farmers an easy strategy to get away from combat

-bots unwittingly do this to prolong their demise

-only truly effects solo pkers

2. Instant Log out

-mostly benefits botters who can sense when a player is on minimap and log out within 1/10 of a second.

-also makes it so players who are ranging can avoid combat easily (however, is not always as effective because players, even when paying attention, will always have a delayed reaction time)

-should be changed to a ten second timer to log out in the wildy just like in deadman mode

3. Bounty Hunter

-encourages market for mass amounts of cheap, throwaway accounts

-desire for expensive, flavor of the month items leads to gold buying

-exploited by bots to emblem farm

1. A team of pkers invalidates npc boxing. They can kill every other npc in the area and just wait until the target inevitably kills the npc they're boxing.

2. Instant log out would mainly help curb bots who are programmed to insta log. I think this mechanic should be in the normal game because it was designed with pvp in mind.

3. I think emblems should be removed tbh, even though I know it's not realistic. I dont think edgeville pking should of ever been encouraged in the first place. People have always done it, and still do even in f2p worlds where there are no emblems. They should add more mobs with good loot tables like lava dragons and rev caves. That is what really encourages good wildy content in my mind.

1. Nope, it allows people a small chance to survive clans.

2. Once again nope, if you want DMM then cry to Jagex to bring it back not ruin it for everyone else, because you're to slow to kill bots.. LOL

3. Annnnnd here we go again, just because you have a problem with edge pking doesn't mean we should remove it, also everything you list for #3 can apply to anything in this game.

So no, you have yet to provide any legit reasons for this, you only provided selfish reasoning that will only benefit you, remember this game doesn't revolve around you.

Though instantly logging out has always been a central escape method for players, it's absolutely true that bots use it to escape faster than any player can react.

I would support like a 3 second logout wait period while not in combat
