Also prayer doesn't have to be expensive, that again shows laziness on your part that you demand to train it the expensive way.
Yes, and Runescape doesn't have to be a p2p game because i should just kill frosts for months/years and just earn the coins to buy enough bonds for everything p2p. There's something called being efficient - training the skill the expensive way = time saved = more time to make money in-game or irl. Please excuse me for not wanting to train a skill the slowest, boringest and most "unlazy" way.

If you find the game so boring, why do you even bother playing it?
I quite enjoyed getting 120 prayer and I spent less money from 99 to 120 than I did getting 99 in the first place.

Please direct me to the part i said i find the game so boring. The only thing i'm saying is players of this game work towards being efficient in terms of getting xp: not finding the cheapest way to get to 99 - otherwise i'd be burying the bones in the wildy from lvl 1-99. And we're getting off topic here but good for you, i'm happy for you that you enjoyed your journey on getting 120 prayer. Now can we just get back on topic?

OP says he wants partyhats to be available for everyone so everyone can have fun and live happily forever after. I explained how his mere imagination is non existent due to the mindset of the community. The way it works is everyone is greedy and likes to keep every achievement to themself. If everyone has partyhats i.e if partyhats aren't worth anything then nobody will be wearing them and they'll be abandoned after 2 weeks tbh - which in the end does not achieve OP's goal of everyone wanting to have "fun"wearing a paper hat.

200m prayer is not the same thing. Initially no one was expected to get even 99; all the prayers had requirements lower than 50. If someone wanted to grind for 200m prayer to show their "achievement", that was their choice. However, partyhats were a fun holiday item that people can enjoy. Not an "achievement" you should brag about.

If you want to make a suggestion to give everyone 100m worth of dragon bones, please create another thread. Now back to topic, yes? Cheers!

You wonder why no one wears one on there, this is the reason.

Have you even played Old School? Much more people are wearing partyhats there than in RS3.

If you wonder why no one wears them there, you are wondering about something that is not true, this is the reason.

Whats there saying holiday items can be something you can have fun about but not "brag" about?
Take away partyhats and look at other holiday items: players wearing their bunny ears, santa suits, and the veteran capes e.g. Just cause they're all items made for players to have fun does not mean you can't brag about it or that it's not an achievement. Because to be honest playing the game for a long time is an achievement in itself and when players can brag about the rare items they got, the xp they have, the skill pets they've earned: why shouldn't players flaunt their account creation status as well?
If anything people wear it more so they can brag about how long they've been playing rather than the item being fun. So i don't see that changing anytime soon and i don't see partyhats getting rereleased either just cause not everyone has them. Look at Jagex they're releasing 15 yr veteran capes. Is it a fun item? Yes. Will everyone have access to it day 1? No. Should everyone have access to it just cause it's a "fun" item? No. If they want it they have to earn it if it means waiting out 15 years. Same could be said about partyhats - The later you started the game, the harder the item is to obtain for you.
Once again you failed to realise why i mentioned prayer and bones but w/e.

False. The only players who wear partyhats on oldschool are those who are fond of nostalgia - yes, everyone has worn them at some point. But after a little while any experienced osrs player takes them off and dumps it into their bank which has hundreds if not thousands of the existing partyhat set never to be worn again. This is because players in the live game are only wearing partyhats because it's expensive and rare. Compare it to osrs community where partyhats are nothing special: Many players would rather wear armour and other equipment that's harder and rarer to obtain e.g third age, divine shields, dragon armour. The only people you see in partyhats are the casual players who play maybe once every 2-3 months.

You're wrong if you take into consideration the number of partyhats in both games.
Number of RS3 partyhats worn/ Number of Partyhats in RS3 > Number of OSRS partyhats worn/ Number of Partyhats in OSRS.

I support the idea with restrictions. New colors, and extreme rarity. Such as the rarity of getting the 200m reward, but scaled up to match half the price of the cheapest PH. Said new colors should be multi colored, or patterned.
This is not for you.

The point of OP's thread is to:

- Rerelease the exact same paper hats so the prices go from 3-10b > a couple of gp (worthless)
- Rerelease party hats at a common rate so "everyone can enjoy partyhats."

Also:
1. Half of the cheapest partyhat is still a solid 1.8b or so - not an amount everyone has.
2. Rereleasing new colours/ multipatterned hats would affect or "devalue" current partyhat prices.
3. @your idea, what's the point of making them extremely rare in the purple slot? This wouldn't change anything: the "New" partyhats would still be expensive given their rarity - which destroys the whole reason why OP wants partyhats to return.

It seems like you're the one that hasnt played if you think this is the case.

^Agreed.

Partyhats are part of the foundation of the rs economy.
Your suggestion would give people a real reason to quit.

Just because you and other players can't afford one doesn't mean that they need to be given out for free or rereleased. Go earn some gp, work for it and oneday you'll have one yourself ;)
