echo chamber starting? yes!

In seriousness, F2P keeps asking for more. F2P is demoscape. What use would it serve? That one good KBD kill whose drops (unless youre killing it thousands of times) will pay for the armour in about 40-50 kills (which the armour will be degraded by then)? Accessing a members-only weapon style for a unique pvp situation? Are there people who stake any more than 600k gp in F2P?

On members this is trash because, that while there are bosses that can pay for it, just use t70 power armour which is dirt cheap and doesnt degrade. The KBD can be killed with a challenge: Without searing overlaods and only access antifire shields (shields ruin dps), and t50 or 55 equipment, you'll take almost two hours to get in about 60 kills. Your equipment will be degraded to dust before you can repay it.

This equipment really adds nothing to the game other than lucky pvp kills.

Agreed.

These armors add 0 uses to f2p thus are better off staying members.

I have no strong opinion one way or another on the matter of this gear, but your statements here clearly show you have no idea what goes on in the F2P world. F2P values items like these. There is a reason the corrupt Dragon Spear is worth 1m while the other corrupt dragon weapons are worthless. It is the strongest F2P weapon in the game and it only lasts 30 minutes. If you receive a Corrupt Dragon Spear drop, I can promise you that it will sell quite instantly, and probably above GE value.

Also, your comments about staking more than 600k... Really? It's like you don't realize there are F2P accounts wealthier than you. There are F2P accounts with Party Hats that are still active.


Again, I don't care what happens to these items. They're worthless to me. Some F2P players might appreciate them and actually increase the value of the items in the GE, making them non-worthless drops from Revs. IDK. It's a matter of whether or not Jagex thinks it will help more than hurt.

Why of all gear do you want the ones that degrade thus get the least amount of useage from?

Out of all the armors id personally choose ones that dont degrade.

Because F2P also serves the role of attracting players to play the P2P version, and allowing players to try out this powerful gear for a short time might encourage them to try out membership for a month or 2 to see how even stronger gear works?

Also simply because this gear is completely useless for P2P but would be the best gear in the game for F2P. We already know F2P players are willing to pay a premium for gear that only lasts a short time if it's BIS (Ref: Corrupt Dragon Spear).

So I guess at this point, I'd have to ask that you provide your data that suggests F2P players wouldn't buy this gear. Until then, you're just making unfounded assertions on a matter that in no way affects you.



P.S. For all of those who believe Jagex doesn't take the F2P part of the game seriously, or that they don't view them as a legitimate long-term way to play the game, then I must conclude that you have not paid attention to Jagex's goals over the past few years. It has already been publicly stated that Jagex wants to release a boss that can only be fought in F2P worlds with F2P gear (A F2P-only boss, if you will). Members could still fight it, but they would have to do so on a F2P world and could not use any of their P2P items. They want to expand the F2P game in ways that are healthy for the community.
