I am going to speak my opinion, i know a lot of you will disagree, but please understand i don't mean to offend anyone.
- Alright i really like what you have done joe with queville so far, but please hear me out.
Playerhat: Here is a list of things i think about it.
1. The player hat mostly will benefit newcomers whom will be members, don't get me wrong it can also benefit veterans, but because the player hat speeds up the rate in which you level skills, this will drastically alter our definition, of what is considered a high level skill, and ruin some of the older players.
2. Even if i bought the membership for the player hat, it would only do me harm, i don't want to have skills i spent ages on leveling to so easily be mocked.
3. Pride, whom can take pride in skills so easily leveled? The part of pride i treasure most, is the hard work that goes into making so many trips back and forth between two places. EVEN with the player hat, its just going to seem like cake, not that it was ever difficult to do anything, that just requires clicking.
Convenience kills games, look what happened to rs, and i know this is not RS but just take that game for a example.
The point of the hat is to teleport, but sometimes something can be TO good, why not add at the least a 20-30 Second cool down on it?
Teleportion scrolls: This one is probably my favorite idea for members, why not just make a scroll that cost like 200-300 gold... and have a separate scroll for each area, and is purchasable by a shop within that area, meaning you have to explore the area to teleport there first. You can save time by making all the scrolls look the same.
I know joe its ultimately up to you what you do, but please consider the future of the veterans community, this don't really imply that i am a veteran, i just really feel bad for a lot of people.
