continued.

5) they will remain on top because they actually have that value, they will still be the most sought after prize of the game, and anybody who has the time and dedication to work for that will surely still go for them. saying adding these fashion items will ruin them is your only opinion on it because you worry about your own worth. which, even if they go down, do you really think it would be drastic enough to make anybody with a partyhat even have a dent in their wealth? lol highly unlikely.

6) I gave up on 07 scape. it isn't 07 like it started as and I personally don't care to start over again. I will slowly work on my rs3 account because rs3 is what I enjoy.

7) i only chose partyhats because they are so wanted and because there is a variety option. just because you own a few, does that make you the only one worthy to decide that this is such a terrifying idea for the game? your argument that i do not know for certain whether it will damage existing partyhats goes for you as well, you assume adding untradeable versions will make existing partyhats not wanted by anybody. which seems highly unlikely because of the showoff value and the constant wealth-holding/rising value of normal partyhats. which seems like it would only go down from bank-bidders.

oh yeah, you mentioned you wouldn't be against SIMILAR yet easily recognizably different items, which is the entire purpose of my saying "graphically different, uniquely colored." or did you miss that part? entirely part of the entire scenario I've mentioned on multiple posts in this thread.

I can assure you I do not care about my own worth man. Like I said I got this green 10 years ago and thought it was worthless at the time. I offered a Rune Kiteshield for it lol (when I first ever saw one). If I cared about its worth I would have sold it long ago when it increased in price like 65 times of what it was when I got it if not more. I'm never selling it so it going up/down in value does not bother me. I do, however, wish for it to maintain its rarity. I can understand skills becoming more and more watered down and it makes sense. Sense of achievement in this game is really dwindling. It would be a shame to me if we now took the rarest items in the game and took some of the achievement out of those as well. If you look at it from the perspective of people who have worked very hard for them only for it to basically bastardized by a TH promotion, surely you can see how that would make people upset? Just look at the rage people have over the promotions that give out copious amounts of XP.

I simply like the fact that in RS3 there are high, high end items that you can grind for and have a certain exclusivity tied to it. You're right, it was not Jagex's intention originally. But that's just what happened. And you're right, again, that they're a little too expensive. However, I'd much rather Jagex put into place some huge money maker or make it possible in some other way to get rich quicker than simply make substitute, similar hats. Maybe release some really rare, really valuable new item that if a "new" player got, they'd immediately get over a max stack of cash.

I have zero problem introducing items to make GP gathering more easier or replenishing dead skills content where money making is impossible. If they really decided to do a Partyhat Promotion, which I still think is extremely unlikely anyway, I'd hope they'd give concept art so both sides of the coin/argument could compromise.

And I conceded the fact that I have no idea how the market would react to it. Jagex wouldn't even I said, which of course implied I wouldn't know either how the market would respond.

I'm all for making partyhats more attainable to the general player. I do not, however, agree that they should just make similar ones and put them on TH. Way too controversial, and knowing Jagex they'd make it so rare to the point where you'd be spending more money on a cosmetic than you would on bonds to simply buy an original partyhat (okay that is an exaggeration, I would hope for the players sake).

Ideas like bank bidders are a good way to give lower level players a lottery system that may make them rich. I'm all for this kind of content. Let's breathe life back into skills. Make resources valuable again somehow. Make 99 stats actually worth it monetarily.

I am not an elitist, I enjoy seeing people get what they want. That doesn't, however, mean I think they should be handed what they want. In this thread we have attached a certain morality to buying bonds for the sole purpose of amassing GP. Well, honestly, we can attach the same morality to Treasure Hunter. One could easily argue TH is an unethical, gambling endorsing type product. This is a belief I have heard on the forums, I'm not so sure I agree with it, mind you.

And no, lastly..I honestly did miss the part where you explained what it would look like. I did not read every single counterargument you made to other people, only read about half of the responses before providing my 2 cents.

ONLY YOU have mentioned buying bonds to amass GP, which by the way a friend of mine did that math a long time ago, according to him, the cheapest partyhat to buy using bonds would cost roughly $2,500-3,000 dollars. and ive met a few arrogant people who have actually done that for full sets. I disrespect that idea wholeheartedly and wish they would get banned instead of treated so highly for bought wealth.

But you still seem to think anything im proposing with this specific event would make any player rich. which it has no(zero, 0, zip) possibility, seeing as how nothing I've mentioned is tradable or ever going to be considered rare.

this would actually further eliminate the possibility of them later adding these new colors and styles for new rare ideas later on, interesting idea there, right?

oh let me repeat myself on something else you just mentioned. you still say you like that in rs3 there are high, high end items of rarity that players strive to work for. just how many times do I have to say they are still the highest end and rarest items in the game and that is not going to change by adding nontradable items of the same name
(wardrobe cosmetic only if necessary to eliminate a physical item being added)

Although to add it to the wardrobe I would imagine them making "tokens" for unlocking it. which would add risk to being tradable. so lets think carefully on how that's done.

but to you saying you don't mind existing ones being more easily obtainable, that wouldn't be a bad idea, but adding more gp gain methods isn't needed at the moment, there are many, MANY easy methods for money, but the thing im arguing is that people don't have the time for it, or do not treat it as a priority in their gameplay, a lot of players probably wouldn't care for this idea, but at the same time, a lot would like it.

keep in mind a lot of players simply play for the social aspect and are simply like upgrading their wardrobe options.

id approve of a concept art for this, im not a talented artist enough or have the programs to design it in any of the pictures I could imagine in my head. I think jagex could do good things for a unique looking partyhat-like item series for anybody to get either from the first treasure hunter event or any repeats that come on 2nd chance Tuesdays.

they are already reworking skills and doing a great job of it, I worry about the smithing rework but so far they have done a fair job of erasing some of the things im worrying about, or evolving it into different interesting ideas. but that's a completely different topic and doesn't affect this post. they are reviving dying skills and giving new motivation for them.

The sense of achievement in owning a normal partyhat would still very much exist the same as it always has, and the motivation to get these items steadily increasing in rarity and value over the years is up to those players, but it is physically impossible for everybody who wants one to have one. even if they were all wealthy enough. there are not enough phats for everybody who wants one.
