As most of us may already known, Jagax have bought by a Chinese company base in Shanghai. But they never make any changes toward their website and game play.

Website:
Problem number 1: I believed Jagex know the Chinese government block anything accessing Google. This simply mean that the people staying in the Mainland China cannot login on Runescape website. Why? Because Runesape is protected by reCAPTCHA to stop spam and abuse.

Problem number 2: Maybe only some people may notices this. Runescape Authenticator is also run by Google. This create a huge problem for people who have set up their Authenticator and went to China later on. Because now, you canít literally play Runescape.

Game Server:
Problem 1: It will be only logical that if the owner of the company will open some server at least where they base at. But no, it have taken already 3 years and still no server in Shanghai. This mean players who play Runescape in Shanghai, were the Jagexís parent company located at, have a laggy game play.

Due to all these reason, people who play in China will be force to use VPN or another third party software to play Runescape. Without using these software means you canít login to Runescape and have a stable connection on Runescape. Wait, here is the catch, you will get permanent ban as Jagax bot detecting system may think you are a bot if you play 3-4 hours non stop with these software.

If you want prove then go to the most famous search engine in China and search the Runescape group. Many players got ban for no reason but they play Runescape on a VPN.

The fun part is that if you play Old School Runescape without a VPN or another third part software, you will get ban really easily.

Personally, I got permanent ban for Macroing but it was lifted after 3 years. I have never use any bot what so ever. So I send many emails and even add Jagex staff on Linkedin to get my account unban.

Jagax really need to make some improvement on this as this as it is affecting many players that are playing Runescape in China.

I really consider the parent company of Jagex is a traitor of China. Because the only reason I can think of is that this company want to be a banana. Simply mean yellow skin with white heart that look down to Chinese. If this wasnít a company base in China, I wonít say this, but your company is located in China then please treat your people better.

My solution is this:
1) Add some server at least in Shanghai and if you have extra money, put some server in Hong Kong, Korea and Japan.
2) When you detect a Chinese IP address, automatically change the spam detection software to some other software that is works in China.
3) Allow player to use not only the Google Authenticator but some other Authenticator that works in China.
4) As there are many gold farmer in China. Hire some employees in China to identify the bots and the company who use bots to generate profit. I know for the fact that it is against the Chinese law for these company to make profit like this. So please stop automatically let the bot detection system assuming people who playing Runescape in China is a bot.
