I can't understand Jagex's decision on this. Makes no sense at all. I can't even believe the whole OSBuddy conspiracies because there have been other (Konduit & RuneLoader(RIP)) free client alternatives way before RuneLite came around, and Konduit seems to be allowed to operate still. And hell, RuneLoader was quite literally a carbon copy of OSBuddy (especially in the aesthetics department). So the fact that RuneLoader kept going (up until recently, but unrelated to Jagex/RuneLite/etc) just brings this whole situation into quite a confusing situation. I still can't believe Jagex would contact RuneLite themselves instead of having a legal team send a cease & desist. Something odd is definitely going on here that isn't being presented.

Conspiracy theories about OSB are fun but surely if Jagex have an agreement with one of the clients that makes them money, then they’d be stupid not to do the same for them all and take royalties from them 

 

Can't take royalties from a free client, which is exactly why they're kicking up a fuzz about "botclient", "break of copyright" and opensource.

Corrupt as fuck.

If this were any other company I'd say an agreement with OSB is retarded and just fits the narrative of outraged people trying to kick up a fuss. However this being Jagex fuck knows they could well have an agreement in place, OSB devs have mentioned they aren't allowed to mention certain things because of an NDA meaning there is at least 1 signed agreement between them an Jagex even if its only confidentiality about something potentially unrelated.

They just about have the intelligence to know if they made any client official and charged for it people would fucking explode, especially after they just announced that the price of membership is being increased again with no change in service.

 

 

 

- First point of contact was Jagex threatening legal action when they have a proven track record of reaching out and co-operating with client devs in the past. Suspicious,

 

- Claim the difference between RL and other clients is the nature of runelite increased potential for others to develop botting tools but declined RL's offer to fall in line with other client statuses and insisted on total closure. Suspicious.

 

- Timing of all this coinciding with RL's peak popularity is kind of suspicious but you would expect them to investigate the client only once it got popular, this is also kind of a double standard though.

 

- When accused of shady things with OSB, conspicuously did not deny or address this despite it being a very large part of the meme/drama that people are going on about.

 

 

 

 

Thing is with a secret partnership with OSB is that most companies accounting history has to be made public and it would therefore be disclosed in their accounts. Of course they could make an illegal deal with them and channel money through an offshore account but 1. There is an alleged NDA which indicates some legality and 2. Is a percentage of the 2.50 p/m subscription fees from OSB really worth breaking the law? 3. It’s too risky as too many people would know about it

 

No idea how many subscribers for OSB there are but yeah
