Why oh why couldn't they have at least put something on the cape to distinguish it more from skill capes?


Because what we have is perfectly sufficient. Skill capes are longer, have the tassels at the front and the shoulder pads. You really can't confuse them. Go find something worthwhile to complain about.

I've already had people confuse my mock Agility cape for the real thing, quite a few in fact.

Shocker, a vast majority of the general RS population are easily duped.

Having not played in three months I logged in today to see the new capes and easily mistook them for skillcapes. Something about 'forcing your opinion on the group'.

Can you make yourself a clan cape without recruiting 5 players or? I'd love to experiment but don't want to leave the current clan I'm in at the same time.

Totally agree.

Different sizes.

The people who are screwing around with the clan capes and making them look like skill capes are just riding out the hype. It's like the chat filter when it first came out, every juvenile came out of the woodwork just to say the f-word a few times and see it on screen. These too will die down as more clans get a chance to get their capes up and running.

A good small step in the right direction so far. I hope they finish up the backend updates soon so everything works properly

If you're blessed with a continuity of RS knowledge, yes, but I haven't played for three months and I'm not really in a position to relearn all the news because I'm already trying to catch up on years of missed information in Pokemon (which is a surprising lot).

TBH when I first saw the capes, it was a cape with a magic hat and a death rune. I intuitively thought during the three months I'd been away they'd replaced the trimmed skillcapes with capes that showed two icons instead. I at least expected Jagex to have the common sense not to put skill icons on the clan capes anyway.

Not to be rude but you're acting as if the differences are so overwhelming that it will take you more than an hour's worth of gameplay time to realize the difference. Yes, it's a startling change for one who has been away for a period of time. Can it harm you though? I can't imagine a single way that a newbie or someone returning from hiatus could be harmed by such an update. So what do you have to worry over? It doesn't affect your gameplay whatsoever and you'll naturally pick up the change as you get back into the game.

Overall, it's a very minor issue that has a very short lifespan where it's apparent to someone like yourself. (ie someone returning from hiatus)

The new hiscores layout is really bad. I liked how the old list could be viewed without scrolling. It was compact and worked great. I don't see the need to change it, not everything needs to look "streamlined".

No, of course, I understand. I'm not saying it's major but it just seems... strange. I mean, RS is a game so focused around the acquisition of skillcapes it seems weird for the game's developers to release something that looks indistinguishable to the uneducated eye.

Of course, most clan members are regular players so wouldn't have this problem.

On a side note: Off Topic -1.5

Isn't it interesting to note that, despite this release being issued some 5 hours ago, we're merely on page 3 of discussion of this issue AND there's only 44 people reviewing this thread.

Meanwhile, yesterday, when Runescape went scuppers -- the comments poured forth on this thread and there were over 230 people viewing it at any one time.

Well, many of people have groaned about that selfsame thing. Maybe that's their way of removing the deadlocked focus of the 99 cape in lieu of the greater achievement capes yet to come? Or to return the drive back in enjoyment of the skill itself and not simply the cape? I'm not certain. It could be a myriad of things, least of which the icons are just cool and reusable, proven to work on cape items already, and a safe choice.

Yeah and undoubtedly there are people who would just like the icon for their clan's cape anyway so... that's kind of justifiable in itself really.

That's because people actually cared about that yesterday. This is crap. Pointless waste of resources for how much it'll be used.

I noticed that too. This thread is surprisingly empty for the biggest update of the month. To be fair, everyone was on tip.it yesterday because they got kicked out of the game, but that still doesn't explain where everyone's disappeared to this time.

Seriously, guys, where are you?

Are you serious? Clan updates don't affect everyone, but a game crash does.

What's wrong with content that focuses on a select group of interests? Wow, don't be so selfish
