Runescape is trash, it doesn't matter if the player base plummets. Like, if the player base needs to have an easy time, then they're the ones that can leave. Botting is just automation, and if you limit the economy to what can be achieved in 8 hours a day. Which is in the realm of acceptable. A bot, that can trade once to a player, still creates a bottleneck. So even if that provided a nice boost. The impact on the wider community/economy would be limited. As players could still be self sufficient, and the pressure to min/max limited. The only people that suffer in Toram, are the legitimate players who have their time discounted by botters. Making them leave the game or become disenfranchised by inflation, and hope for the market to collapse.
