Personally the main thing F2p should have is also access to their capes of achievement. i mean why not, they can still get to 99... now the quest one won;t be possible and of course all members skills, but hey, guy manages 99 str or attack of def in f2p and thats amazing, cause it's a lot harder in f2p then in p2p lol.








It was their choice to train them in F2P. If they want the capes, they pay. That is why Jagex keeps them P2P. By the time someone reaches 99, they are a loyal player. If Jagex can suck them into P2P, then there is $5 every month.












ok yeah then they are a loyal player and if they max all f2p skills they'll prolly be bored and will pay for the additional skills and content!!! sheesh. i still support skill capes as f2P.

All P2P says that F2P doesn't pays for RS but we actually do.



Example: All banners or advertising.



There even is a rule that you may not use an pop-up blocker.







And better dragonhide armor or some new F2P robe would be good.

More bankspace would be nice for f2p, and skill capes, I guess.

F2p hasn't gotten bank space recently.



Only members got bank space that time.











I think f2p should get skill capes. F2p works harder than members to get 99 stats, and, no one is gonna waste $5-10 for a pixelized cape, even if it does "brag" you have a 99 skill...

Even moreso, a f2p who got 99 in a skill wouldnt waste his account by becoming members.



When I read the update I was mad the capes are only for p2p.







I dont think f2p bankspace is really necessary, unless you want to store all kinds of junk.



Access to the forums also bad idea, now people are reluctant to flame to hard, but with f2p everyone can make new accounts, and the forums are already so huge, with f2p it would become a chaotic mess, a new topic would be bumped of the first page in a matter of seconds...







I think mage range and melee are now pretty balanced, so neither should be updated.



You dont want to have any more quests or junk in f2p, if you like such things you can get member anyway.







But heck, why p2p skillcapes? Its something extra to look out for when aiming for a 99..

Erm, even though i am P2p, i'd like to see Capes of Achievement in F2p.







Erm, one question, most of the people who post here will be F2p, so why the link to the forum they cannot post on?








this is something i totally agree with .... posting in rs forum would be great for f2p as they can say their opinions,sell things....



i also would like as a f2p to be able to cast more spells like the waves spells and to snare and entangle








then people will make noob accounts and spam.

They don't allow F2P to have forum rights because of the macrors. Think about it, if they were allowed to post, they would advertise sites! Memebers can easily have forum rights removed because they pay! F2P they can just make new accounts.







EDIT* What I am saying is that P2P are easier to control then F2P.

Waste of an account? :roll: A 99 is a 99, no matter where you got it, how you got it, or when you got it. I am p2p. For all you know I cooked cow meat for my 99 cooking. That is far more difficult than lobsters all the way, as free players do. :-w (And my currently 97 fishing - all done with genie lamps \<img src=/' /> )







But heck, why p2p skillcapes? Its something extra to look out for when aiming for a 99..








And with every free player's 99, Jagex looks forward to their $5.00 payment. :P

Honestly I want to see the dragon dagger as an f2p drop from like some super-frakin bigass monster. Maybe untradeable because it would hav a modification. This i so the price wont go down.

The f2p update i would like to see the most is this one;











TELEBLOCK SPELL







It uses all f2p runes, i dont see why you cannot cast it on f2p, people tele on f2p so you should be able to cast tele block.



As well as SNARE, yes 10 seconds hold spell, bind is useless.

id say, more bank space possibly capes of aceivment, *the F2P skills though* becase no point being a member just gto get the cape. and maybe a new quest or 2, to give something to those long players







plus bind is so usless...

The only reason to withold certain features from f2p players is to give them an incentive to become a memebr. Thusly there is no reason for not allowing f2p players achievment capes, wildy capes and other similar things. Unless of course Jagex is not the happy go lucky, only makes money as an offshoot of doing what they love, and genuinely cares about each one of their clients regardless of wether they are f2p or p2p (which is the carefully crafted image they have created for themselves). I've had members for nearly a month now and i'd say my money was well spent, but i can't understand why they don't update f2p, afterall everyone starts f2p and the better that service is the more likely you are to upgrade (at least you are if you're like me-which granted may not be true of all players).







As has been stated f2p players earn Jagex revenue indirectly through ingame adverts. Thusly it is glib to say that f2p players don't deserve new things because they don't pay.

I totally see your point. They could always make an f2p forum. it can't be that difficult.







Bank Space would definetly be handy:)

LOL F2p needs to have 2 ads instead of just one.
