What if we prefer the original colors? Maybe give us trimmed versions of the originals? Even add in new ones with cool sparkly effects?

What a great cheerful idea from the OP. I already feel so excited knowing new partyhats are coming! :D

What great ideas! The more versions of partyhats there will be, the longer it will take people to obtain them all and the more people will buy spins! Cheers for your support, it's easy to believe your signature!

I think adding ones that look similar to the existing colors is pretty unfair to the people who own a classic partyhat.

Don't worry - people who own an existing partyhats would still be able to keep their hats. Also, the chances of getting a partyhat from Alice's chest would be equal for everyone, regardless if they already own a partyhat or not. It would be fair for those who own partyhats, too.

I don't see a problem with new colors though - that sounds fun :)

Cheers for your partial support, I added a notation in support list after your name that you only support new colours! Cheers!

I don't see this happening. I also think the idea isn't very well thought through.

It would most likely be very hard to obtain a partyhat from TH. You would be way better off spending money on bonds to buy the hat for rsgp, as is the case in every TH event with tradeable items.
The reason for this is that you still win other useful prizes while trying to spin for a valuable tradeable item. If you could just buy X bonds from the GE and claim all those smaller prices until you win back the money you spent on bonds, it would mean you get as many free spins as you want.
This also mean that it changes nothing for people who don't have a partyhat, it will still be equally as hard for them to get one, there would just be a new more expensive way.

If the partyhats would be relatively easy to obtain (which we all know won't happen), the value of them would plummet. This means people will buy less bonds for rsgp as they don't need as much money for their bank goals. And people wouldn't need to buy many spins, so it wouldn't be very profitable at all. Jagex would earn some money from TH once, and less from Bonds in the future, resulting in less profit than before.

All in all I don't see a very good reason why Jagex should do this, not for the players and not for their own gain. So no support.

Don't worry - I can assure the idea is very well thought through. Now, let me refute your concerns!

Solution to this: don't make it very hard to obtain a partyhat from TH! Problem solved!

Don't worry! It appears you have made a mistake with how the economy works! I have good news for you! Currently it costs about 5000€ to buy the bonds for a partyhat. Very few people do this. When the price of partyhats would plummet, other items would rise in price, and thus more people would have to make money for their "bank goals". Jagex would earn more money from both TH and Bonds, resulting in more profit than before!

While that might work out in theory, there would be no other items people could spend billions of spare RSGP on. Non discontinued items are too easy to get these days, they won't ever rise up to the amount of RSGP needed for a partyhat. Without any status symbols left in the game to buy, it would most certainly result in a decrease of Bond sales.

Which is a good thing, because very few want to spend 5000€ on bonds. Items in price range of 10-500M are much more important because it's actually realistic that people will buy bonds for them.

People can still buy half wine jugs! Problem solved!

Discontinued items are items in-game that can no longer be obtained.

Partyhats fall under the discontinued category aka why they're traded in the Discontinued items section of the forums. so current colors are a no for re-release.




plus even if they did bring out new color phats you wouldn't see them coming in the game through TH most likely, they'd come in some way like the Bsh did.

I want a partyhat because of its history, rarity, value, and general status, perhaps lastly would be its looks. all these things would be compromised if they were to re-release them.

You are entitled to your opinion, but initially partyhats were supposed to be fun holiday items for people to enjoy. Not status symbols of wealth.


that was 13 years ago, if you are still stuck on having "fun" with a party hat you need to expand your horizons. There a new items released quite often for you to have cheerful happy fun time with..you just don't see it that way because they don't have that reputation the phat has earned over the years. you wish to hop on an, already full, fun train that left the station over a decade ago. If you aren't riding it already, the ticket is going to cost you. You want the train to crash to a stop, politely let you mosey on, punch your card and start partying. Well chances are stopping the train threw everyone forward, the cake is on the floor, and now its over-cramped and sweaty, just a mess, and the rest of the ride would be an awkward silence with people shoulder to shoulder uncomfortable and irritated..

people want what they can't have. It is not important enough for you to make and save money in-game, you bring it to forums looking for a hand-out. How much "fun" could you have with it? you can put it on, and take it off. you can attempt to use it on anything and everything in game just for the fun of "nothing interesting happens" other than that it doesnt do much..your definition of fun is super lame.
