It's not often that you have RS gold a boss drop it at such a remote location. I would guess that this pickaxe will rise slightly to 5m or something these couple of days and then hopefully drop back to below 2m (To a price a poor noob like me can afford) as soon as I become a member again, if I pay it tomorrow! It's hilarious! Ok, returning to the subject , what's your say about this thing?
A higher ping will give you the ability to "click" something faster than someone else with a better response time. Iron mining is an example of this. Although most people are able to hit the rock with one hand the one who has the fastest reaction time and the most efficient ping will prevail.
The less pings, the more reliable. It's easy to imagine how it might be unfair to someone who has an internet connection that cheap OSRS gold really isn't as good as the other person's. But the location of your computer is an important factor. Your communication will be more efficient if you're closer to the site.
