Single Status Update
Just wanted to thank you for all your work! I've bought a couple of your scripts since getting back into OSRS, really appreciate how well they work.
Quick question for ya that no-one probably knows the answer to, but I used to play a lot back in the day (level 110+), but that account was transfered to the new RS game. I'm using the same account to start an OSRS account (hope that makes sense), and i'm curious if I still will get flagged as a new account or if the past play period on my RS account will transfer to this one. I don't bot for more than 2 hours at a time & am making an active effort to be very careful with the usage, but was wondering if its a known thing that linked accounts/accounts with more playtime have a less % of ban rate. Also curious if it helps that in the 30hours of gametime i've had on my new OSRS account, I've completed 116+ quest points etc.
Obviously don't expect you to have an answer to that but just asking it helps my conscious. Again, truly do appreciate all you do.
Glad to hear that you're having a good experience with the scripts
The question you pose is quite difficult, because there is no quantitative data of sufficient size to draw such conclusions. In general, recently made accounts tend to be banned sooner than long-established accounts, but this is not necessarily indicative of Jagex's ban evaluation process.
I'd say you should bot with extra caution, especially on an account that you care about. In recent years Jagex have really cracked down on botting and it's much less lucrative than it once was. Not botting for more than 2 hours per day is a good first step, and there is more that you can do to help keep a low profile, such as diversifying tasks and using generous breaks.
If you haven't already, it's worth giving this thread a quick read: https://osbot.org/forum/topic/124429-preventing-rs-botting-bans-v3/
Hope that helps, and good luck on your botting journey. If you have any further questions, feel free to reply here, on any of my threads, or send me a PM.
