This is my personal opinion, but I share the view that 120 (master) capes should not get additional perks. Getting the cape as well as the journey towards it should be the reward. By giving the master capes perks you will indeed create an environment in a completionist focused community that strongly encourages people to get 120 in skills. I think that (even with the huge increase in exp/hour) is not healthy, while it actually devalues the achievement of those who got 120 in skills just out of enjoyment.

On top of that, those that currently already have 120 in certain skills will only get freebies out of this update, while I think it is more enjoyable for rewards to be unlocked by participating in new content.

But yeah... from a company perspective I see this as a manner by which more gameplay can be added to the game, thus keeping players interested, while not having high developmental costs attached. I just wanted to give my view on this.

I'd like to add something to my previous comment:

Whenever you poll something with a choice involving freebies, a huge portion of the game community will want it, regardless of what it specifically is. They do not think (care?) about the fact that these freebies do not add any actual gameplay, just the fact that it is something they get without any effort involved while making the game easier. Balance is not a word that comes to mind for many players either, as is seen when something overpowered enters the game yet few people point it out.
It even can go as far that when freebies do not add enough benefits, people complain about them, even though they had no problems prior to the introduction of said freebies.

Case and point: the amount of perks posted here in a mere few hours. Or look at the thread of in game bugs being (mis)used by most people for ninja convenience fixes instead.
