Currently you can buy xp but you can not buy bossing skills. If skilling has achievements attached to it like gathering trophies from different skilling methods etc. - Final Skiller and bosses drop less skilling supplies the perception of skilling would change. People would be proud to wear a comp skiller cape. The comp cape should have a name change - comp skiller/warrior. Some minimal combat and some minimal skilling achievement should be required to earn either cape. Well balanced req will make this work. Some player came up with the reqs for trim cape a long time ago so said req should be modernized and the trim cape should get a logo indicative of which year it was earned.

@Runezscape

Removing the reaper discussion is simply an acknowledgement the if you do pvm and earn a lot of gp you can buy skilling and easily achieve comp but the vice versa is not true. The reality is things are skewed towards combat when it comes to comp. Another fact is the top 3% of players are good at combat. Addressing this issue is a welcoming change in my opinion. Surely some solution can be found.

This topic was a big discussion 3 1/2 years ago when this comp cape req was actually still new and the topic of discussion, along with all of the req being added in elf city around the same time (including Rush of Blood). The discussions were basically like beating a dead horse and Jagex refused to change their stance. So...

Nothing has still changed 3 1/2 years later, why are we beating the skeleton of a dead horse all of a sudden? Not to sound rude or anything.

I am posting this because I was one of the upset people that lost their comp cape for good in 2014 because of the update so the wound is still there. Not just because I refused to boss but was also because of elf city being added along with all of the ridiculous amount of elf city comp req being added. I feel it wasn't a good move on their part to release so many big changes for comps all at once.

In conclusion (and to be blunt I guess) you just have to learn to adapt to the new game or move on. Jagex didn't revert EoC despite all of the negative feedback as an example. In the end it's their final decision on what they choose to do with their game. It's a good thing Oldschool Runescape was there for me to fall back on, along with many others.


Haven't you heard RS3 is easy.

People that do not agree with this basically make money form selling boss kills and see a money making methode dying in my opinion.


This.

The only reason why someone would want to keep the group bosses on is so they can sell their leeches. Without the bosses being required they would lose their leech money. Any attempt that says keep them just because of difficulty don't realize leeching is the equivalent of it not being on the cape in the first place. Take out the middleman already.

Comp owners have spoken and why aren't people listening(specially those who have been in this thread saying poll the compers...)


There is more than one way to skin a cat and darting a boss is pretty exciting even if you get no drops or you are allowed to do it only once. Just saying. You can get the music track as well. There could be some humorous dialogue during "the encounter" since pvmers take themselves a bit too seriously at times and the game is supposed to be mostly for fun.

Thats the beauty of comp, like the examine text says, for over achievers. How useless would comp cape be if it was just a lore and quest cape, it's like a second master quest cape without reaper title.

It's not that difficult to learn the bosses, nor does it take much time at all. Also not that difficult to find teams, or get a group of people who don't like the idea of reaper title on comp cape and learn the bosses together, that's enough people right there.

It is not that big of a dilemma. The game exists b/c many ppl play and pay and these said ppl have a say especially after 18 years. Easy to decide what to do via a poll b/c if your customers are not satisfied there is no game. Spending other ppl's money on your needs is frowned upon irl. That is why OSRS exists btw.
Also it should always be analyzed why content is "difficult". Is it because bis gear is needed which is locked behind a paywall/timewall or is it b/c you have to sweat profusely to accomplish it or is it b/c you need other ppl with comparable skills/money/time? There needs to be a standard stated by Jagex when it comes to comp and said standard needs to be well articulated and maintained especially at the new higher prices. Better business practices pls.
