Mod Hooli: "Hey everyone, thanks for bringing this to our attention. We're going to take a look at what's going on from every angle and see if we can do something. Give us some time to fully investigate this if you could, but we are on it."
So they are finally on this issue! Thank you Mod Hooli for responding! We are excited and anxious to see how you guys are going to resolve this issue, whatever it may be. Instancing, feather/bob trick tweaks, slayer task only chest, it doesn't matter. Thank you for doing SOMETHING! Just please fix the issue at its root!
I will check back weekly to see if there's any news and update this thread.
To everyone that agreed, disagreed, upvoted, downvoted, called/tagged the Mods - this couldn't be possible without you! Power of the people! Thank you!
So here's an issue I've had to deal with at scorpions that should absolutely fall under Disruptive Behavior, but let's not kid ourselves. Reporting doesn't do anything.
We all know a lot of people have multiple accounts, apparently up to 15, botting/AFK'ing corrupted scorpions, and it's usually the same people, day in, day out.
We all know the complications of this, so I won't get into it other than it seems like neither u/JagexHooli or the rest of Jagex even wants to acknowledge the massive issue this is.
No, this post is about something else that is just so fucked up on so many levels.
These people are starting to follow people around worlds to make sure you can't farm.
Here's what happens;
You think that's it? No. Here's what they do now.
They will literally follow you on every world to make sure " no farm 4 u ".
They will use one of their alts to literally go through every world to find you, and then crash whoever is in that world with the feather trick or crash you, forcing you to hop again.
Congratulations. You are now prevented from killing scorpions for whatever reason. Ushabtis,slayer, money or just because you feel like it.
Before you say "Turn your online status to friends only so they can't see what world you're on" - I've done that. The issue is that they just use one alt to shuffle. Do you t... keep reading on reddit ➡
So I was finishing up a piss when a tiny bit of motion caught my eye; an articulated tail, moving quickly behind the hinges of the toilet seat.
Scorpion. Pretty big one, too.
I've been living in this house for seven years now, so I know the drill. I lowered the toilet seat, and the scorpion sat motionless behind a hinge, hoping it was camouflaged.
They usually don't move much after I've spotted them, so I went out to the garage and got my scorpion hammer and some eye protection. (Believe me, you do not want to get scorpion guts in your eye. I found that out the hard way.) And I headed back inside, ready to destroy the little critter that violated the sanctity of my crapper.
And it was gone.
That's when I noticed that there's a small space in between the toilet tank and the toilet bowl. A narrow, darkened space, just perfect for a rather large scorpion to take refuge in.
I tried poking blindly into the space with a piece of cardboard, and then with a wire. No luck; it was secure in its little toilet cave, and was determined to wait me out.
Obviously, this was an unacceptable standoff. At some point, I was going to have to take a dump, and the idea of a scorpion within inches of my buttcrack when that was happening was moderately terrifying.
Eventually, I decided on the nuclear option. I got a can of compressed air, usually used for cleaning computers, upended it, and stuck the little straw attachment into the crack. A couple of blasts of icy fury unleashed both the scorpion and a truly hideous smell, a mix of cleaning chemicals and crap that got into my sinuses and burned. The scorpion made for the shelter of the underside of the toilet, but I grabbed the hammer in time, smacked it firmly, and it fell to the floor. Where I hit it a couple more times just to be sure.
So now you know that there's a space between your toilet tank and your toilet that's a perfect shelter for rather large scorpions. You can file that, as I have, under things you'd really, really rather not have known.

If they really wanted to win, they would stop training troops, and Invest in walking turrets. I’ve been killed by more turrets in destiny 2, than any other cabal troop in destiny 1 and 2 combined.
Sometimes, when a scorpion is trying to get away from a enemy, it drops its tail to use as a decoy. This backfires though, as a scorpion's anus is at the end of the tail (the part where it drops). It therefore can't poop; it dies in around 7 months from poop buildup.
