I appreciate many players may be wondering whether our time could be better spent rejigging the network to make it more DDOS-proof. The SysAdmins are already working on that, in conjunction with our hosting providers worldwide, and they're doing everything they can.

The OSRS team - consisting of content developers, artists, testers, community staff, etc. - wouldn't be able to make this happen any faster. More people isn't what's required, and our skillsets aren't relevant to it either. So it wouldn't actually help if we stopped doing game updates. We'll keep you informed of how the sysadmins get on.

World switcher is nice, but how does the restriction work on hopping too fast? Will 3rd party client hopping have an advantage?

Our login systems have restrictions on hopping too fast; this was installed when the system started getting overloaded by all the login requests people were making. So 3rd party clients can't hop as fast as they might wish.

The in-game one also has restrictions on use, but not such tight restrictions as the login system uses.

I wish the world switcher showed the amount of players and ping.

Yeah, that'd be nice. Ian might be able to give us some more game engine features for this after he's finished with his current projects (e.g. resizable mode).

Also, if he can make the engine check that you're logging in from the same IP after you hopped, we could more safely offer you the option of making your PIN stay unlocked over the hop.

Any news on Kree'arra's magic/melee attacks going against ranged def?

We've not touched it so far. I'd be inclined to poll such a change anyway.

It's not uncommon for monsters to roll their melee attacks against your magic defence - many Slayer monsters do it - so it's not necessarily a bug that Kree'arra was programmed to roll its magic attack against your ranged defence.

Cant you make the quick hopping so it wont use the Login Server? Just transfer the account from one server to another without doing the authentication?

Roughly speaking, that's what it does. That's why it's able to hop more often than the login system allows when you're not using our worldswitcher.

Can you make the world switcher stay scrolled where you were when you relogin? currently when you login it scrolls back to the top each time.

The client's currently wiping its record of that sort of thing when you relog. Which also applies when you hop. Ian could give us the ability to cache the scroll position across sessions, perhaps, though I've asked him to finish resizable mode before delivering any more engine features for other things.

Alternatively, I could try and hack it to scroll to a position on the list that shows the world to which you just hopped, since that'd be close to your previous scroll position.

Meanwhile, you've got the Favourites.

The things you describe all sound feasible, although many players are not in favour of Resting due to its effects on the energy potion prices.

Meanwhile with client hopper I can hop like 10-15 worlds untill I get kicked out of the game and get the "Too many login attempts" message.

Oh? It was my understanding that you'd get that much sooner, depending on how fast you're trying to hop. Sorry.
