Partyhats on Treasure Hunter!!
Quick find code: 366-367-655-65817896
I feel as if you are wanting party hats on the TH for a means of gaining wealth without actually working for it.
Don't worry! I'm not after wealth. I'm just wishing to have fun with partyhats. That's what they were designed for. Cheers!
To add, anyone who wants to gain wealth can just buy bonds, it's pointless to do TH for money! > )
Yes but if (supposably) tradeable partyhats were on treasure hunter it'd be different.. People would actually risk trying their luck and making hundreds of millions if not billions of coins rather than buying 100 bonds.
But don't make them tradeable, and make all phats untradeable, problem solved (well except that some people'll probably continue to be stupid and think it's worth trying to buy gp via TH, but they'll learn the hard way sooner or later anyway)! > )
I wouldn't mind if partyhats became untradeable but i know people that will. I mean it's a little too late for change. Safest option is to keep things how they are.
Sometimes it's better to take the risk, just look at EoC I mean if any of the discontinued rares that I have were tradeable, I'd definitely support making them untradeable. Money can be made elsewhere and the feels are better when they're not associated with money.
your supporters list is (for the most part) just a bunch of titles that are in-game that you've ripped from the rs wiki, lmao.
Look closer, you might see a pattern...

Id only agree if they made them mems only
If this is what you took as a support, it was clearly sarcasm.
Tbf, what's supposed to indicate sarcasm there? Without the winkie face, it'd be impossible to tell whether it's sarcasm or not, and even with it, you know, I've seen you use winkie face lots of times before where you haven't been sarcastic.
If you don't want to risk mistaken for being serious, just use the "/s".
Yet if you look at most of my other posts its clear i dont support this.
Plus my first ever post was this:

So please tell me how he couldve mistaken it?
People can change their minds, and so I only looked at the post you first pointed out; don't just assume that I've read even most of the replies on a thread with over 300 posts
Show some appreciation and celebrate the true value of an origianl partyhat. And I'm not talking GP.
Well then to do that, let's make them untradeable.
What you are basically saying is that those who want to have fun should play OSRS. No wonder why OSRS is more popular.
Just because OSRS is fun doesn't mean RS3 couldn't be fun as well.
Idk how, but this gave me a chuckle out of the blue, cheers! > )
I got a better idea for Jagex to score a few more bucks.
Instead of a full phat...I say..we do this.....pieces of a party hat.
So example. We take a Purple Phat.
Instead of a whole Purple Hat. We go with 3 pieces.
1 Purple Party Hat Top
2 Purple Party Hat Middle
3 Purple Party Hat Bottom
After that the player will have to combine them to get their Purple hat. AND players cannot trade the pieces either. They can only trade when it's a full Phat.
I got an even better idea; instead of combining them to a hat, just keep them as individual pieces and compete for the most amount of pieces! > )
I'll support if the TH party hats were different colours. other than that good thread, GL
Cyan and black, that's the colors we need.
It'd be real nice if people who support re-releasing old rares as they are, would stop to think for a second, and realize that there are other options, such as new cosmetics or altered versions of the old. It's not a case of "if I don't get it in particular I'll never be satisfied".
Hi, im RavenCoeur, like everyone else who posted on this thread.
I don't want to work for my money.
I want a free hand out from jagex, because i don't know how to apply myself and reach a goal.
I don't want to spend 250 hours of PvMing for a partyhat because its hard.
I want jagex to give me what i want or else they'll lose my 1 bond every 3 months of income!
I want to keep doing 4 elite clues a year and cry when i don't get rich
I want to whine about being unable to afford a phat when i'm not even maxed in 2017
Thank you! i support re release partyhats on treasurehunter!
This thread has turned into a troll thread basically. You can hope and wish for Phats to be re-released but that will never happen seeing it would crash the market INFLATING Any other item to an outrageous price leaving the cost of playing not even worth trying. Jagex knows better than to do this because it will cost them more money and players in the long run and eventually terminate the very existence of Runescape, and we know that they can't afford to lose anymore players than they already have so I have to agree with Key Player on this one.
Keep the old colors discontinued.
If you must, make new colors, but be sure to respect the veterans and keep the original colors' historic value intact! > )
And to everyone saying they got it from PvM, well I don't believe you I do twin furies for 10 hours everyday and I get good killtimes (before anyone calls me out, about 1:30, scythe t90 prayer, augmented tetsu) and I am not even close to a partyhat. So stop lying.
But still, let's imagine for a second that you have actually been doing Twin Furies for 10 hours every day... why would you do that? If the best boss you can make money with is Twin Furies, you aren't even to the proper endgame yet. And if you aren't to the proper endgame yet, why are you concerning yourself with a goal that is not intended for your skill level? Twin Furies are a meh boss to make money with in the long term, as it's one of the easiest bosses, so the drops are in big supply, and 2/3 of the unique money drops are trash compared to the other GWD2 unique drops. Once you get the pet drops, you should move on to better bosses, like Telos for example, which you have been doing. So keep up the work with Telos, and you'll get your partyhat well-earned eventually! > )
The bigger the build-up, the better the satisfaction!
This is idiotic beyond belief at this point. All these people wanting partyhats on TH are the first to bitch about OP TH promos and MTX as a whole, smh.
Although I personally have not complained about TH promos, a lot of people complain about them because they would like to see more cosmetic promos instead of continuous xp selling. That's why they support this thread.
Cosmetic promos on Solomon's store, though. Whether you gamble for exp, gp or cosmetics, gambling is still gambling, which is not appropriate as a form of MTX. > )
TFW its been stated time and time again th isnt gambling.
Plz look up the definition of the word "gambling".
Th doesnt fit into either definition.

Take bosses for example, most ppl either want pet or a certain drop, so if they go 1k+ kills dry does that mean they "gambled" their time?
because i like your cheerfull attitude.
And i want to cheer up others too.
Old School 80k players
RS3 20k players
OSRS constantly releasing phats isn't why the game is more popular than RS3. Lol.
I have a white partyhat and I have a white dog.
-> My dog is a partyhat. (Or is my partyhat a dog?) > )
The only people who would be pissed off by the re-release of party hats are the merchers who spent billions on them. Lets be real, barely anyone will be quitting the game (if any at all) just because an end game goal is no longer as prestigious. There are other things players and work towards other than buying phats.
1. I can understand from personal experience how it feels like to be deceived by Jagex, and as such, I wish no-one else would have to become a similar victim, because I can tell it really sucks when you do become one.
2. Even if you happened to not be affected personally this time, what's stopping you from being deceived in the future? If you let Jagex do whatever it pleases, sooner or later you'll be at the receiving end of the deception, because you allowed them to go out of control. It's much healthier for everyone in the long term to consider the game integrity over personal desires of getting something.
You don't have to own a partyhat to know that re-releasing them would be a bad idea; you only need to have some understanding of long term consequences of certain actions. > )
Have they said partyhats would never be rereleased again?
I took here the part of the quote I agree with!
There have been many occasions when players have asked them to confirm if partyhats will never be rereleased, but Jagex never confirmed this, so it would be big news if they did during a live stream, and I'm sure someone would have a source for this (and it would have been updated to RS Wiki https://runescape.wikia.com/wiki/Partyhat).
About the wikia, it's mostly accurate for sure, but personally I come across articles missing old information there every now and then. It's not common of course, but it happens.
I'm not saying you are lying but you said it was a long time ago, so you probably don't remember it 100%. It could have been one Jmod saying "Personally I believe partyhats should never be rerelased again" or "We would never add partyhats" when discussing Balthazar's Big Raffle etc.
1. It was a consensus among the jmods on the sofas.
2. It was talked about on rereleasing partyhats in general, not just on specific context.
3. The stream itself took place around 2014-2016.
Now, of course, if you still don't believe this is good enough, that's understandable, you don't have access to my memories after all; but even if we assumed that Jagex has never said anything regarding this, and you wanted to re-release the partyhats, it would do a lot more damage than good.
Like said before, it only "works" in OSRS, because it was made very clear from the beginning that partyhats would always get rereleased. (And I said "works" in quotation marks, because even though they're technically fine as they are because it was made clear from the beginning how they'd work, ironically they're more appreciated in RS3 than OSRS, because inevitably they lack value/don't matter in OSRS as a result.)
While it would be nice to be able to give everyone what they want and have it not hurt anything, some things are simply meant to be and best to be left as they are, in order to have a meaningful game experience with integrity. In those cases, it's best to look for other things, something entirely new or similar, yet with a distinct difference. > )
Hmm, maybe it was just a dream? I have dreamed of them saying Anja would give partyhats druing livestream, but it was just a dream, so they were not actually deceiving anyone.
Sorry, but we really need a source. 2014-2016 live streams are still in Twitch, but I didn't find anything regarding partyhats.
Sure, people would be all about the partyhats for the first short while, but only because of the shock value of something controversial happening, not because they'd care about the hats for the long term afterwards. The current owners on the other hand, do care about them for years to come, as each hat has stood the test of time.
But dreams can be very realistic. How can you be sure? 8)
Reviving their historical value as cheerful holiday item!
People know very well that they will crash when rereleased, and that's completely natural. Quite the contrary, it would be unnatural not to do something just to protect the wealth of (bad) investors!
People paying for those items what they are worth is not really a bad thing because you can always get more of them in game.
You can still have that goal because you can overpay for the partyhat even after they have crashed.
Is it fair to say that most people who own a phat may also buy their membership with in game coins, therefore Jagex makes no real money from them? Hmmmm...
Then leave it as a osrs only thing.
Not everything needs to happen on both games.
Can use the exact same argument the otherway around, not everythings needs to be exclusive to their respective game.
But like OSRS set the precedent from beginning that the holiday items wouldn't be discontinued, so did RS3 that theirs would be discontinued.
If this happens, phats would crash drastically and as a result of this, other stuff like T90 gear would raise in price exponentially. I don't know about you guys, but I don't wanna pay 800m for a nox scythe or 2.1b for a Staff of Sliske. No support whatsoever, sorry.
Feels like after a week of everyone having Phats, almost all players will stop wearing them in order to find something else to wear that will make them unique. I have never played OSRS, but I'd be curious to see just how many people wear Partyhats on there when they are readily available (similarly to what this kind of update would do on RS3).
People do care, but those who wanted to brag with them don't. OSRS doesn't have cosmetic overrides, so you can't expect people to wear them all the time, but they are used in partyhat parties. Vast majority has used them at some point, and partyhats have given much more enjoyment in OSRS than in RS3.
Also, you do remember that partyhats were at one point very common in RS3 (before it was RS3), right? Given that, as well as the fact that they're much more meaningful in RS3, I think they've given much more enjoyment in RS3 across the entire existence of Runescape.

But people use them while skilling!
About that quote of yours; at first I didn't even understand the image, because the tree pretty much "swallows" the whole image, but even when I saw the partyhat... what's the point? I even went to read the source of that quote to try and get more context, but you simply say that your clan disagrees and show a picture with one partyhat being worn.
Like yeah, it displays that one guy at one point wore a partyhat, so if you wanted to be literal and prove that at least 1 person has worn a partyhat despite them being worthless, you proved it. But that's just that, as a sample size or other kind of serious contribution it's totally useless.
Moreover, if I am skilling in a bank and I'm not wearing my partyhat, this doesn't mean I don't care about them anymore. It's very nice that in Old School I can use my partyhat whenever I choose to.
In all seriousness though, I would have something more (less humorous) to say about this, but I don't think I should say it in public because it's more personal, so if you want to hear it, PM me when you have time and ask for it. I'm not gonna write it down because it's not that important, so I might just forget it, which might be for the best.
This sounds very surprising, considering you have to be super rich in RS3 to even obtain one. One explanation could be that you are elite player and hang out with elite players.
So whether it's surprising or not, that's just how it is: people really don't bother to use them in OSRS. And if you look at the discontinuity polls held a while back, it also points to that: majority would've wanted discontinued rewards, and technically one of the two polls would've passed, with the other being very close to passing as well.
The game was not RS3 before it was. By RS3 I meant RS3! (Sorry if this was confusing )
To prove the existence of something, it's sufficent to give just one example. People claimed that no one wears partyhats in Old School, but this is not true.
Like yeah, when partyhats were first possible to wear in OSRS, many probably did; but once they realized that they were no longer meaningful like in RS3, people stopped caring about them.
Like I said, if I am skilling in a bank and I'm not wearing my partyhat, this doesn't mean I don't care about them anymore. Maybe they are not used as much in everyday life, but people use them while celebrating occasionally, whenever they choose to.
I'll let you know next time we arrange a partyhat party so that you see
Keywords: if you own one. There are not even enough partyhats for everyone. This has to change.
But OSRS already have continued partyhats. And those polls were not about partyhats.
Yes, the proof is not rigorous because that's not possible. Even if I posted the same picture now, you could 5 minutes later say that it doesn't prove people still wear them. It's a heuristic proof based on the principle that if no one wears partyhats, I wouldn't be able to log in and see someone wearing them.
I still don't see why it's a choice between "wear them whenever possible" or "not care about them". And maybe there are disadvantages.
If there's no practical obstacle (like that you're doing combat and need stats over fashion), and you care about the partyhats so, why would you not wear one in that situation? Personally, when I'm doing something that doesn't require other practical equipment, I'm gonna wear my fashion outfit that I care about. If I didn't, then clearly I would not care that much about it, to not wear it when I well could.
In Old School, everyone can obtain one. In RS3, this is not possible because there aren't enough of them. This is a big difference.
Is this better?
If not, let me know and I take another next time I log in.
Does Old School have bank presets? If not, then it takes time to switch gear everytime, even if you could use them while skilling.
Anyhow, I could keep going with the other parts too, but I think you'll agree with me that it isn't really leading to anything productive anymore, so I'll just stop it here and go back to the "alternative versions are fine but not originals" stance.

Let me rephrase, ahem.
This thread makes me wish that our initial interpretation of the Mayan Calendar was correct, and we all infact fucking died in 2012. Our brains have been diluting instead of evolving ever since and this thread and everyone who supports it is proof.
The party hat isn’t just a paper hat “W i t H n O C o M b a T s T A t S”
Take a bit of pride in your achievements and stop grovelling at the feet of others with discontent that they’ve got something your greedy paws wants without any of the effort. I know it’s 2018 and this generation gets everything they want and more for free and the notion of hard work is dillusional, but you can’t just take such a treasured, coveted item as the party hat and start handing it out to people. The hats are priceless because of their historical significance, their sentimental value and their nostalgic appearance. The day they are released in to the game again all of those qualities will immediately vanish and you will be left with simply a paper hat with no combat stats and all you fairies will rejoice and fashionscape at the G.E, spinning with your ed8r, wasting time and xp that could be spent earning a party hat.
And you know what? A week at the very most later you’ll toss it in to your bank. It will never see the light of day again because you’ll have stripped it of any value it once had.
The supporters of this page have completely disregarded the efforts and great achievement of those who own party hats and have often in their replies mocked and shamed players for doing so. (Albeit in a subtle ‘cheerful’ way) and it’s disgusting.
Now, if this is a troll thread... ggwp you got me.
Merching the hats doesn't come without risk either as you say. Instead of losing a few hundred thousand on bad judgement, you can lose tens and hundreds of millions, if not billions overnight.
Since the thread is about to cap out, I feel like this is the time I offer you a handshake: even though I don't really like this idea (though I'm pretty sure you once said to me something about this thread that you left out from here), the fact that you kept it going for over 2 years with such engagement and wit is admirable IMO. Well played, truly! > )
