Have comp. Only trim reqs I need now are last ports and ROT6 which I'm not sure I'll ever manage to get through, so I need more longterm goals. I need more stuff that is the length or longer of the cw games req, but preferably not connected to comp cape so no one gets all complainy. Thought Prestige was gonna be it but community sunk that.

My little things are like getting all booster outfits, TH and elsewhere including maxing auras (post-legendary). Weird little stuff like that is interesting... maybe full hybrid sets of getting max dps/tank gear? All t90 weapons (lolsiesmics)

At least they're finally being honest about how they're going to pander to the maxed crowd.

 

Can't really blame them since it wouldn't surprise me at all if maxed (or "high level") players are the majority of the playerbase now.

In the BTS we mentioned an upcoming poll asking whether we should make certain holiday items available for Loyalty Points. There have been lots of requests for more information, so I wanted to answer some of the common questions.

 

What items will you be selling?

 

The items we're considering are untradeable seasonal or holiday items, including outfit pieces and possibly other novelty objects. We don't have a limit in mind for how old or young the items should be, but we're adamant about the untradeable requirement which does knock out many of the oldest items.

 

Examples of items under consideration include:

 

Bunny ears (Easter 2003)

 

Eek the spider (Hallowe'en 2009)

 

Santa costume (Christmas 2008)

 

 

If the vote shows that players would like these items we'll start choosing batches of them, starting with the most popular or desirable.

 

Will they look identical to the originals?

 

No. In order to make sure that players can still show off the originals, the new versions will be altered slightly to make them visually different.

 

Can players buy them with Loyalty Points?

 

Yes. The poll is specially whether or not the items should be available for LP, and we have no plans to make them available any other way.

 

Can everyone buy them or does your account have to be a certain age?

 

Everyone will be able to buy these items. With this poll we want to see if there's enough demand from newer players who didn't have the chance to get them the first time.

 

Will the items be tradeable?

 

No, we will choose only untradeable items and the new versions will also be untradeable.

 

How much will they cost?

 

Final prices will be decided after the poll (if that option wins), but I'd imagine that we'd make them relatively expensive out of respect for the prestige of the originals. Not high-tier-aura-expensive, but not title-cheap.

 

Will they be overrides or in-game items?

 

Ideally they'd be overrides, but some items with particular functions (such as Eek) may need to be in-game items again, so it's something we'll look into.

 

If the poll passes when will they go into game?

 

The estimated time for the first batch is late March or sometime in April.

 

Can I win the items on Treasure Hunter or are they only buyable through Solomons?

 

These items will not be available on Treasure Hunter.

 

Why not make them buyable only by accounts that existed during the event?

 

We'd like to offer a chance for newer players to get items they weren't around for originally; don't forget that for some of these items 'newer' includes accounts that are ten years old!

 

Won't reintroducing these discontinued items devalue the existing ones?

 

The new versions will be visually distinct from the originals, and we're confident that this will preserve the prestige of having been there the first time.

 

Why does Jagex hate loyal players so much?

 

There are loyal players on both sides of this debate, and Jagex doesn't hate any of them. The poll puts the decision into the hands of the players.

 

Does it include SoF/TH holiday items?

 

We don't plan to extend this to Squeal of Fortune or Treasure Hunter items.

 

Won't everyone just be selfish and vote for what gets them most?

 

Players are free to make their own decision how they vote.

 

Won't it crash the economy?

 

We're only going to release untradeable new versions of untradeable objects, so there'll be little or no impact on the in-game economy.

Pah! I want the scythe I missed!

I'm kinda torn on this one; what I'd prefer is for the items to be buyable with loyalty points but *only* if your account is old enough to have owned them.

 

But on the other hand I want Bunny Ears and Scythe! I was around from 01 right through but my current account started 24th Dec 2003 so I missed them.

Bah, Jagex, let us old enough accounts who missed these events finally get hold of them (I want my scythe and bunny ears) AND open up the alternative ones to people who are willing to shell out loyalty points! Pretty please!

I would imagine them releasing...

 

Dingy santa costume - designed like the same outfit, but with worn or patched spots on the costume. examine: a well worn santa outfit ready to retire.

 

Eek the spider - designed like the last, but eek brought his treat bag with him. examine: it looks like the trick brought the treat!

 

Floppy bunny ears - designed much like the original bunny ears, but one ear just can't seem to stay up. Examine: not quite as much of a flop as you might have thought.

 

Rusty hollowe'en scythe - designed the same as the original scythe, but with a rusty blodd splattered blade. examine: its clearly past its reaping days.

I completely agree. I have Bunny Ears, which proves my account is old enough to have all non-tradeables. But I missed the Scythe, not from not trying either. I still remember logging on that day and searching everywhere trying to find one, but never did find a Scythe. It has actually bothered me a little for a long time. I would love the opportunity to get the exact Scythe I missed, I don't want a newer, different version. I'm honestly OK if they give all players the ability to have the originals through loyalty points or if they made it only available to people who have an old enough account to have been there at that drop. But either way I would really prefer if they were the exact same as the originals.

I am also against the idea of buying the old holiday items

I've been around for a while, but my newest account is only about 2 or 3 years old (the one I'm playing on). I'd like to have all the old non-tradeables :)

I just think it's really disrespectful to players who do have those items.  Don't get me wrong, I'd love some bunny ears, but I realize that, much like botting, it compromises the integrity of the game.

With the huge amount of free xp Jagex is flinging at everyone these days for doing bugger-all, we'll all be maxed soon.

I have all untradeable holiday items and I don't mind them adding replica versions of them to the loyalty store. Going to vote yes for those who want to get them.

I think they should have a system where they can earn the previously not claimed items each years holiday event. For example if you have 2009-2013s, you could get 2008 in 2014s holiday event then because you have that. Next year you get 2007. It builds backwards until you claim them all. meaning if you started in 2009 it would take you 7-8 years to get all event items whilst keeping up with new ones.
