Fashionscape is very important to this game, people underestimate just how much pride and dedication a significant potion of those playing the game have towards Fashionscape.

Aesthetic customization is a huge part of this game, and in it's waning years I feel as though it should transition into a more chat orientated experience. People invest portions of their lives to these avatars, they should be at least worthy of being looked, thus the importance of fashionscape. Some people play this game just for the fashion and collecting, it's true.

In order to survive the next MMO crunch in the market, Runescape has to seize this opportunity to become a platform for freedom of speech and an Icon in Digital fashion. Think about how many thousands of outfits are digitized and in the Runescape collection. It is a very diverse wardrobe from a Fashionscape orientated perspective.

I don't think any game has as much variety to equip as Runescape. There is literally an infinite number of outfits you can make and their adding more.

Runescape needs to become a Habbo Hotel of sorts, a live chat room with digital avatars with pay to win outfits, a place for intellectuals to gather on the internet. This is Runescapes future, Fashionscape is the first step.

Freedom of Speech always comes with restrictions - it is never a 'say anything you want' structure.
Additional chat rooms would entail additional monitoring which means additional costs. How would this be financed?

I remember the days when the entire runescape reddit front page was ranting about out of control Treasure hunter Promos. The days of Mimic Tongue Capes, and Gem Tokens, back when Jagex had Treasure Hunter Mania and people were accusing them of becoming extremely.. Profit Driven... When all the games updates were Treasure Hunter promos, with limited edition outfits, Tradable Rares and all those other buzzwords that are meaningless now.

People call me a sellout, but I LIKED THOSE DAYS. I liked getting limited edition outfits each week, a Nice hat here, a cool cape there, and a goofy "limited edition" walk. Some people invest billions into there wardrobe. Let's not forget, The most valuable items in game are purely Aesthetic objects with no practical purpose, other than a form of Elitism of certain individuals to show of their wealth/accomplishment.

99% of Runescape is Fashion. The other 99% is Friends.

I kind of miss the days before all the overrides. When players seemed to use more imagination in making their outfits. It was fun to see what people came up with. Many players use to show off their best while at the monkfish spots iirc.

Now there are so many overrides I hardly pay attention anymore. It's too much to keep up with.
The point of the journey is not to arrive.

^^Agreed - The value of overrides/cosmetics has dropped. Before I was able to name them all, now I'm not able to name half of them nor their value or currency used to obtain them.
