Jaekob Caedsaid: As much as I'd like to be able to see my character wearing a party hat, this would completely devalue them as people could get the cosmetic effect via real-world money.. unless you're planning to let Jagex charge tens/hundreds of thousands of USD on them, in which case it'd work.
The amount of rc they want to charge for these is totally on them.
Jaekob Caedsaid: Plus, there's the morality aspect of it: is it really right to take away the exclusivity of veteran RSC players having access to them? It's one of the same issues that I raised over the token system for the Premier Club, this year.
Yet who ever said phats are to be restricted to rsc players only?...
Couldbeworsesaid: Though I don't necessarily see a problem with new colors being introduced, I feel like at this point that Jagex is not going to implement this. If they were going to, it would have a long time ago. The financial gain from temporarily or even permanently throwing new colors into the game would be huge; even players know that.
I'm still on the fence about throwing the current colors in, but at this point they're so far unreachable to most players through legitimate means and that in itself can be subjectively considered as wrong. I understand the prestigious factor, despite them being truly admirable years ago, but at this point in age there's really nothing much left to lose.
Untradeable discontinued items are a slightly different story.
Id just like an alternate way of getting a phat w/o having to spend a lifetime just at a very small chance of getting one.
So if jagex were to release them for like a day or so, that be good enough for me.
Soulsreapersaid: no absoutly not because it would devalue the actual party hats by a billion times, if anything they should add 50 of each color to the game from old banned accounts that had them on them and that have no hope of return to help stide the value of them but not make them completely valueless
Like how you said my idea would devalue them yet your idea would do just the same
Doorknob747said: Dear OP.... you do reallise if that comes into the game the next thing people are going to ask for is .... 1 month membership package payable by runecoins. Or EVEN special items that summon attackable aggressive boss monster to train on where ever you are ... even at GE.
If you want to discuss something like that id suggest making your own thread.
David Jamessaid: Would you (the people opposing) rather them be released as actual items identical to originals via TH or just a replica override via SGS? Personally I'd rather see the latter, as this thread is suggesting.
At least with this they arent really getting "rereleased" per say as the actual item is still discontinued.
