I know so many people I play with that use "Cheat clients" on basically maxed account, because there is no risk involved. Nobody seems to get banned for using one. Jagex, explain, and please ban the people who take unfair advantage of unapproved clients.

As we've said in the post, as of next week we will start issuing bans for anyone using a client that isn't an official one or in the approved client list.

Thank you Ayiza! I didn't know which clients were good vs bad. This list helps a lot!

No worries, glad it could provide some clarity for you!

Will this reduce the amount of bots ingame?

It should most certainly help, yes!

Its nice for it to be official though it would be nicer if people actually got banned even infrequently instead of just in extreme cases. Cheat plugins exist on steam. Saying you official ban them, for the 2nd+ time, doesnt mean youll be banning them.

That's part of the reason we put this post out - so there is no excuse going forward as we start to ramp up our efforts in banning those using these clients.

RuneLite's ground items plugin does this, doesn't it? When I drop items there's a timer next to the item text that shows when it will appear for other players & when it will despawn.

Should I disable ground items?

That one specifically was meant to have been edited with the new guidelines. I've changed it now, here's the actual updated text:

Indicates to other players what items/loot will drop in PvP

How can the author(s) of a client not on the list get on the list? Not that I am smart enough to make my own client... but I am curious to read what the process would be like.

Currently, they can't. We're not looking to add any other clients to the list, so there is no formal process.

If that is to change in the future then we'll create a way for this to be possible.

Probably a dumb question but are we still allowed to use runelite without launching it through the jagex launcher?

Yes that's fine

This is being clarified. This is supposed to be talking about plugins that'd reveal to looters where and when private loot that is due to become public will appear.
