    Mod Jacmob, the guy who is famous for creating RSBuddy and who created the BotWatch system which almost completely took out botting on RS, has apparently left Jagex recently. This means that Jagex no longer has their ace in the hole against RuneScape botting, as bots become more advanced it's likely that Jagex may not be able to keep up without his expertise.

    Let's hear @Arbiter 's opinion on this, as he seems to be the only person around here that is in contact with Jacmob.

    Legend has it that Jacmob told Jagex every thing he knows

    I think Jagex has plenty of devs that know how to detect bots by now.

    I don't quite understand. Is he the developer of the old RSBuddy macroing program? Or is he an Orion dev?

    Confirmed. I didn't want to be the one to leak it, but since it's out no harm no foul.

    Not at all in the short term. In the long run, we'll have a better shot at recovering our lead on Jagex.

    I consider him a close friend. We don't chat as much as we used to, considering how our paths diverged and how busy we both are.

    Unlikely, but I would love to see it happen.
