This update goes both ways for me i agree that castle wars as a req shouldn't be there in the first place it served no function to the cape and also these days the minigame was dead pretty much everyone was leeching. Now as for reaper I have mix reviews I agree that group bosses shouldn't had been on the cape but as for solo bosses they should had added it to the cape do to the fact it being a solo achievement cape and also we have
Morvan special assignment
which requires you to kill solo bosses as a comp req already.

In my opinion i feel like instead of them completely removing reaper they should had modify the req only requiring you to do all solo bosses for comp.

I agree this would have been a better solution to the problem. Unfortunately, it seems this update was more focused on removal of content requirements, rather than fixing the problems in those requirements that made them untenable in the first place.

Ideally, I would like every solo boss to be on both comp and trimmed, and no group bosses on neither cape, but that's just me. Probably the majority of players would be ok with solo bosses being required. Group bosses should just give some other kind of reward, better stats, whatever seems fit to both Jagex and the community.

This would have been an acceptable compromise for normal comp. But group bosses + hard mode bosses should be a requirement for trim (including vorago).

Let's not forget what Jagex themself said about trim.

"In contrast, the Trim requirement will be something which requires you to have completed content, to whatever extent is possible. When you see someone with Trim, you should see someone who has completed everything. That player knows the game inside and out. "

Knowing the game inside and out should mean defeating every boss in every mode. This means hard/challenge mode, group and solo elite dungeons and duo/ 7s solak. I would even argue that green warden should be a trim requirement, not just 100%. Knowing the game inside and out means knowing the combat system inside and out.

Only requiring solo bosses would have been a good solution. Though you might run into some issues defining what a solo boss is. Is it just the bosses that have a solo mode, or also all the ones that are technically team bosses but can be quite easily soloed (Nex, GWD, Kalphite King)? ¸¸¸¸¸¸„‹•°Member of

i know how to swim the channel. i can tell you all about hydrodynamic friction, thermal coefficients of insulating materials, training regimes, dietary requirements. i know how to swim the channel inside out. this does not mean i can swim the channel.

reaper req was not primarily removed because of people who "couldnt be bothered" to do the bosses, it wasnt removed because people were lazy, or didnt want to do the research, it was removed as it was decided that grind cape didnt need skill barriers

id put money on it that a lot of people who didnt have comp coz of reaper could have actually told you how to kill the bosses, but were simply unable to do so themselves (possibly after many attempts) or were unable to find a team
