If bots were ever officially sanctioned by Jagex, The premium bot market would suffer due to the obsolescence of antipattern Commercial goldfarmers would be completely obsolete Jagex would possibly gain a resurgence of members? The non-consumable part of the economy would crash. I don't know enough about Economics to know by how much, though. A good chunk of players would have fully maxed accounts. Anyone disagree or have anything to add? It seems as though this would hurt bot clients like RuneMate and Powerbot financially. So maybe premium bot authors secretly hope that banrates continue to be medium-high?
