Today's announcement on the backflip on what was a pretty awesome comp cape redesign, with good, solid content for those not into high level pvm, may very well be the straw that breaks the camel's back for me. I was super excited about the Tier 3 lore and skilling capes, as well as the exploration side of things. The fact that truly completing all content, such as player-owned farms and the like being recognized properly and having its own cape really had me anticipating this update. Now, today, we see Jagex do a complete 180 on the entire redesign. No longer are skillers, explorers and lorehounds going to get a nice beefy update. No, we'll just appease the pvmers once again and do a couple of minor tweaks to an outdated cape that was flawed from the very beginning.

I know that not all of the community would be happy about what was proposed, but I am sure there were far more of a silent majority that were behind the concept than the voacl minority, who, once again, through their temper tantrums and whining totally screwed up what could have been on of the best updates of the year.

I really don't know if I can continue playing a game where I am so bitterly disappointed when a few players ruin what could be great, quality updates. On top of the fact that the developers are so scared to take skills and content to true 120's, (see M&S update, the sudden slience on summoning being rewarked to 120, player owned farms and safecracking two perfect skill additions for taking farming and thieving to true 120 levels), we constantly see longevity updates screamed down by small groups.

Anyway, I write this straight after reading the blog. I was so excited for the new quest coming out and had planned on doing it day of release, but I can't even stomach logging back into the game after the update reset. Hopefully a day or two away will calm me down about it, but I am really not sure this time. It has happened one too many times for me.

Well, I guess it's something in the end though. Back when Jagex first tried to fix the comp cape with "statement of intent", Osborne ended up killing it altogether and absolutely nothing was done. This time, they set the bar much higher, but lowered it in the end back to the level of "statement of intent". Now if only they will finish it this time. :P

1 step forward 2 step backwards, make changes that devalues trim comp but not replacing it with something else. This so called endgame cape is not so endgame anymore, too easily achieved, which in on itself is not the real problem, the real problem is there's nothing more beyond it.

I'd prefer they kept comp cape as the pinnacle and added a lot more to it, but just kept it something that you can fully earn by yourself. I didn't mind killing bosses for reaper to comp, it's the fact that you can't solo several bosses and are forced to rely on others. :P

The achievement tier capes are a cool idea and should be completely separate from the proposed comp rework. Trying to tie them together kind of muddled things.


This.

I think it's best to fix comp cape for now - i.e. stuff that isn't completable (reaper, CW,...) getting kicked out, stuff that is completable and missing getting added in - that basically was the very essence of the poll regarding the whole topic - fixing the mess that cape is right now.

Splitting the benefits into specific subsets - and then later they still could do achievement based capes - albeit I guess those are now dead for good.
