Something I agree with from Csoldier2 on page 52 of this thread:

"People seem to forget we have a comp and then we have a trimmed comp. Trimmed was always meant for people that went above and beyond the essential content of the game. I do not believe Reaper should be completely removed from comp (because as much as I hate it, it is neither plausible nor possible because Jagex would never do it). However, a compromise as suggested can be made. Simply add all bosses requiring teams to be moved to trimmed comp. Let regular comp be for solo bosses only. Trimmed comp as it stand even needs more requirements. We talk about trimmed having completely all content in game, but it isn't even close. "

I agree with what he said in terms of comp = solo bosses and then trim comp = team bosses, as much some of us enjoy skilling, exploring lore I think they are progression steps.

I also agree with what Smasherley said above in this post but have people seriously forgotten max cape has combat stats too...yes not the best but still something ofcourse.

It changed overall from completing quests/minigame type things like mage arena and livid farm for comp to now extras of PvM content which I agree yes is fun but it finds a reason for others to bully.... there is some Pvmers who hate quests and lore but want to kill solak/telos 24/7 which there is nothing wrong with that, just need to find that balance to reward those.

Then neither of those groups deserve comp (only one of them is complaining btw).

Fact is you have to play every area of the game to get comp and thats how it should be.


I understand that, max cape has combat stats anyway lol... (i'm comped btw)

As an owner of completionist cape myself for the last erm... (guessing 6 to 7 years or so), the main thing that always put me off about it was forced group content.

I know this is beating a dead horse but, all group content can just be paid for with a leech service for an ungodly amount of gp. This is what the majority of people have done in the past to maintain their completionist capes. This can be verified by all of the leech services in the teamwork section on RSOF.

There is no glory, integrity, nor self accomplishment in any of that.

When Yakamura was released, that was the first and only boss I had ever paid for a leech to complete.

Since then I had maintained my completionist cape until the day Solak was released. That was the final straw. To top that off, Elite dungeons 1 & 2 were released in a short time period afterwards. Neither of them were created for solo content as they do not scale to party size.

I have been playing since the Solak release with just plain old max cape.

If this is the route Jagex plans for the future, I will have to live with max cape as I do not wish to do more forced group content. Sure I could easily pay to leach Solak, Ed1, and Ed2 to get my cape back as I have more than enough bank for it.

Then I ask myself, why would I? There is no accomplishment in doing so.

I hope Jagex makes some very informed decisions on how they sort out completionist/trimmed completionist capes. If they do not get it right, they will stand to lose a good portion of their already dwindling player base.


Agreed.
