Was looking for the lending thread for party hats when i stumbled across this.....

I've played Runescape for 13 years and only this year been able to afford a party hat after choosing to buy a AGS instead of a purple party hat when they were the same price.

It's a ridiculous concept to re release partyhats; it's something I've wanted for probably the last 10 years and finally got lucky and managed to get one. Think how unfair it would be on those who have spent years making GP to buy one for it to Drop instantly.


Completely don't support.

It's understandable that some might be reluctant to support the idea of Partyhats on Treasure Hunter. Everyone is welcome & invited to browse the thread to see the reasons and understand the rationale in favour of supporting the idea.

I won't suggest to you that "life's unfair, you overpaid for it," and I will avoid the drop-kick one-liners such as "Sadly, life isnt fair. The sooner you realize that the better."

As you say you got lucky obtaining wealth so congratulations! ^_^

However, you seem to be lamenting about fairness, and that seems to be at odds with what you described as being lucky. Some people are not as lucky so is that unfair?

Nay, the reasons and rationale that support Partyhats on Treasure Hunter appear to be founded upon the firmest of foundations and that foundation is the foundation of fun! :D

Fun yes! The partyhats are not about wealth, partyhats are about parties, and parties are all about having fun with friends old and new! :D

That is how they came to be in the game in the first place! They were given out for free for everyone to have fun celebrating the holidays! :D

So, if you want to look at it from the angle of "fairness" it would, in fact, more fair to share the fun with everyone, that is, share the partyhats with everyone by releasing them again. Indeed, there's simply not enough partyhats to go around, many are removed from the game, so it would be more fair to release them again via Treasure Hunter.

Therefore, it is more fun & fair to share the parties, release the partyhats!!! :D
'O.o'
Something interesting happened.

Yes and that is the case for many items. e.g spirit shields, godswords, dragon claws, mimic capes. The list goes on. Jagex does nothing to compensate those who lost bank.

Obtaining an item in 07 does not give you the item in rs3 sadly.

Might as well speak my mind....you know what I hate? A good stigma.

Take my sunglasses on my forum avatar. They've gotten a reputation for being "elitist" headwear. Or E-dater attire. Because their value was blown way out of proportion just because they looked nice.

It's an item. You worked hard for it, well done. But your reason for not support....actually, most people here with their reasons....most selfish whiners ever.

There are 3 ways to get rich in Runescape. Merchanting, scamming, and staking. With a lot of time and energy maybe PvM.

An 8-11 billion GP hat is almost certainly not acquired through normal means. Yes all three of those options exist at your disposal, but they aren't really legitimate.

there's also RWT's. Does anybody actually think people acquire all party hats, especially sets, with the integrity of the game in mind? Jagex releasing them on treasure hunter would rid of a ton of this nonsense.

When presenting an opinion to a disagreeing party...most try to patient explain and see if the other persons views change....truth is. Forget it.

All the people who spend hundreds of dollars recklessly on TH and the people who strut about wearing their party hats as symbols of supremacy reflect exactly what is wrong with the game.

Also
as you said yourself, you'd have loved it if it'd happened within the last 10 years....But you got yours, so forget everybody else hmmm?

So typical.

I'll be honest, I've wanted a picture with a white party hat for as long as I can remember, cause I thought they looked nice...But I certainly don't want to give others the impression that I'm like you or perhaps Draco. If having one means I'm part of the same crowd........Na. Keep it.

You probably don't have a high opinion of me at this point....But, and not in a sarcastic way, I will compliment both your and Draco's honesty....It's not much unlike a good ole boy mentality, but if you'd prefer to be all exclusive so be it.
