Veteran Cape

Recommended Posts

The cape was a great idea, but I believe there should be two tiers. I want a 10-year cape for those of us with a decade of experience. I mean, why bother making the cape if it only represents half of the game's timeline?

This has already been discussed, and if I remember correctly they can't do a 10-year cape yet because records of account creation dates weren't logged that far back then.

Would be cool if Jagex made 20-years Veteran cape :mellow:

Oh yeah (the rock/Dwayne John.) I'm serious.

Yeah, wouldn't be surprised if they had no records back then. Damn, good point.

 

This is all direct quotes from Jagex btw. They will release a 10 year cape with data starting from the day they started keeping records, so maybe another year or so till they will release it and the first players will be able to get.

Besides, iirc they are planning on releasing a second tier for 10 years, they just need to wait a while until their records coincide with that achievement.

They should just scrap the notion of a 10-year cape and go straight to 11.

10 years was the original idea but i think they have some technical problems with doing it(don't have account creation dates that go back that far) so it has been speculated that they might release the cape next year for people with bunny ears/scythes, but it's just speculation. 10 year cape was always something they wanted to do, even before 5 year capes.

Yeah, they did want to make a 10 year cape, but because of technical limitations it wasn't possible to release it with the other ones.

 

Even though I probably won't be getting it, I'd be in favour of it being released. This game needs one of those capes that not everyone has.

Just so long as they're clear on whether or not it's members only this time. It probably will, but they were pretty misleading with the whole "available to all players" thing for the 5-year capes.

I still think that the cape (by the time the 10 year cape comes around) will become more popular.

 

Just look at the highscores. There isn't a skill where someone hasn't obtained 200m experience in. In fact, for the majority of them everybody on the first page has 200m experience. :P

Quote straight from the development blog:

 

Veteran cape - a cape that any player can wear if their account is more than 5 years old

 

Next year, we will be able to offer an expanded version of the Veteran cape to those players who have been with us for 10 years. Currently, thats not possible, although we know that some of you are already 10-year veterans. See below for how YOU can help design this awesome cape!

 

So they are going to release a 10 year cape, just not until next year. ;)

On Topic: I'm a bit more annoyed with the fact that the veteran cape itself was designed by all players, regardless of how long ago they've played, and I'm not happy with the design at all. Just way too much action in it. >.< I hope the ten year cape's design is actually chosen by those who are going to be at the ten year mark.

Every player has chance to wear the cape, so shouldn't they have a say in how it looks?

Point made. :) But the way it was described, it felt like to me more directed to older players in general in terms of start date, not how long they've played the game, if that makes sense?

I see what your saying, but I think they covered that base with the classic cape. So I agree that only people that would have been eligible for the classic cape should have a say in how it looks, but I dont even think there was a vote for that was there?

Actually the Classic cape ended up being for anyone who has ever played on Classic, including during the re-introduction a few years ago. =X
