There was absolutely nothing wrong with the original design (literally like a 10/10, exactly how I imagined an old school sequel to the Fire Cape)... complainers just want it to look less old school and more pre eoc, which is not what this game is about.

That being said it still looks fine except the bottom part... I'd take that out.

lol

OSRS was literally made because people specifically wanted pre-EoC.
Only reason why it's based on the 2007 version of the game is because that was the most recent full backup they had, otherwise if they had a full 2012 pre-EoC backup that's what they would have used.



Nope.

There were loads of posts, many more asked for a 2006 version than a 2012 version. I remember reading these forum posts. Jagex also created a thread acknowledging that players wanted an older version of the game, and SPECIFICALLY cited the demand for a 2006 server, and then 2 weeks later the referendum went up. 2007 was simply the oldest one they could get their hands on. If they did have 2006, they probably would have rolled with 2006. I don't care what you think now, because back then the motive for OSRS was to bring back the 04-07 era. The game should at least LOOK that way.

Pre Eocers think the only reason OSRS came out was EOC. No, EOC was just a final straw that made it difficult for Jagex to avoid losing so many players. Prior to EOC they were still losing players, and people were still asking for a 2006 server regularly since at least 2011.

Have you watched the streams? Mod Ghost was saying how he wanted to preserve the "Old School" feel when designing the cape. And what did the cape look like? Something straight out of 04-07. The Inferno? Maybe slightly updated, but the monster models are based on the original Fight Caves. You need to wake up to reality, even some of the OSRS mods are more sympathetic to 04-07 than you are.

Just face it. If they had started with 2012, so many people wouldn't have come back. Mark my words, we old schoolers will fight you pre eocers every step of the way to save this game from annihilation. You lack the passion of an old schooler.

Nah you see your logic is so completely flawed. Adding this cape in the first place goes against the idea of OLD SCHOOL. Adding this cape IS a pre-eoc addiction. The design has nothing to do with it, Everything added since GWD has slowly chipped away at the idea of this game being "Old School" RuneScape. This game is no longer about keeping the game Old School. It is about re-creating Pre-EoC. That's exactly what the community is pushing for. HMU when turmoil is polled.



Nope. Just because they update the game doesn't = Pre EoC.

Pre EoC had horrible and unbalanced updates. That's what makes it the steaming pile of shit known to us all as Pre EoC, or 2012Scape. Zeah is not Pre EoC, and neither are the vast majority of updates.

This game is about going backwards to 2007, starting over, and making better updates than what Pre EoC had in terms of quality and balance, while "maintaining the old school feel." The J-Mods have repeated that several times, and when they say "old school feel" they are NOT talking about 2012. So what are they talking about then? I'll tell you, the greatest era that RuneScape ever saw, the 2004-2007 era.

In a nutshell, Old School answers the question "what happened if back in 2007, we listened to those rioters saying 'we pay we say'"?

Original cape design looked better and did fit well with Old School. This new design is horse shit and simply removing the bottom part would be a huge improvement. The collar could go too tbh.

Any consideration given to making the original design the baseline, with this new one being created by combining the cape with an Onyx? I liked the original a lot, the new version doesn't really seem like an upgrade to me.

The first design was basically perfect, all the gaudy stuff is just really EoC and that's not what I want in my 2007.


THIS.

I have two ideas to keep the old school feel.

1. Same model as current fire cape, with red mist emitting from the bottom.

Or

2. Make it he same colors as the current fire cape, but all ripped up (like the legends cape) as if it went through wear and tear in battle.


I support this, #1 more so. I think it should be red instead of orange though.
