Quote taken directly from RuneScape.com

As part of our ongoing war on botting and gold farming , we launch Botany Bay! Those found to be using illegal software will be permanently banned and their account deleted - with no chance of appeal should they continue to ignore our warnings. After our recent major banning of professional gold farmers - Botany Bay is your chance to publicly name and shame persistent bot abusers!

As we hunt for and identify botters, you - the good citizens of Gielinor - will be the ultimate deliverers of justice!
Unrepentant and persistent bot-users will now find themselves banished to Botany Bay. This foreboding island is the staging ground for trials run by the Botfinder General, where there's only one verdict and justice is swift and uncompromising.

Those of you wishing to take part in the trials can speak to any of the trial announcers found in major Gielinor cities. You'll be teleported to the courtroom on Botany Bay, and given access to portals that can take you back any time. You'll be invited to pelt the condemned with rotten tomatoes, and will be asked to vote, along with other like-minded players, on one of three account-ending punishments:

  • Death by Crushing: Nothing says "banned" like a bot pancake.
  • Death by Swallowing: Watch as the bot is devoured by something unspeakable from the Abyss. Mm...crunchy.
  • Death by Deity: Righteous rays of bot-melting justice are the choice of the discerning angry mob.
Vote in three trials, and you'll be rewarded with a wieldable pitchfork of vigilantism. After that, the next three trials you vote in will unlock increasingly angry emotes, which can be performed by right-clicking your pitchfork. Finally, your seventh trial will reward you with the gloriously pointy pitchfork of justice.


We will continue to evolve our anti-botting measures to hunt down those guilty of trying to spoil the game for genuine players. So while we continue with the investigations, the trials can commence for those already found out!

"Pitchfork of Justice?" "Increasingly angry emotes?" Sounds like I know where all the angry people will congregate. And, as I was saying when they were just talking about this update, this will make RS riots even more scary.

EDIT: I haven't really seen ppl on bot sites freaking out too much yet.

I'm remembering what they said about how the system would give out incrimental bans. So potentially we might not see too many for a few days if the identification system was only implimented the same day as the Bay.

In a way I would call this a better bot nuke than the last one was. The last one was just aimed at breaking the bots while this one is aimed at getting rid of those accounts that are botting. Rather than frustrating them for a month or two only to return, RS is attempting to take away the accounts that are being used inappropriately so that they can't return (only start over, but only to be caught again).

Hello, this topic has been locked. There are many possible reasons for this...
  • the question you are asking has been answered,
  • you may have posted in the wrong forum,
  • the topic could be degenerating into/has already started a flame war,
  • the posts were straying too far from the original topic.
Your topic may have also expired. This means that no one has posted on it for a while, and it would be better to start a new topic to keep the conversation fresh.

This list of reasons that your topic may have been closed is given instead of a specific reason because moderators have the option to close multiple topics at once, with this standard reply added to the topic. This is much faster than closing multiple topics manually, and gives us more time for our other work.

If you have any further questions as to why this topic was closed, let me encourage you to check the FAQs, and to PM me if you do not find the answer there.

Have a nice RuneHQ day. :D
