Remove Castle Wars comp requirement


Shooter585

Recommended Posts

It's time to remove this completionist cape requirement. First of all it's a little ridiculous. Secondly, and more importantly, people just afk Castle Wars. Whenever I play there's like ten folks standing on a dot above the starting room. The team that wins is the team that has the fewest of these people.

 

Support? I know that this isn't a new idea but people mainly talk about how long it takes, not about how it kind of kills Cwars.

Yeah I agree with you. It's not something people have to do often (most people don't for for trim) but it's a bit ridiculous that you have to just sit around for hours and hours to achieve a cape.

 

There isn't anything that you achieve after X castle wars games except the rewards, which should not be a requirement for trim. Are the Trouble Brewing rewards a requirement for trim? No.

Specifically it's a trimmed completionist requirement...most of which are ridiculous in their own nature (getting max rewards in M.A., 4k chompy kills, etc) I think it adds a bit more prestige to the trim cape requiring so much time and dedication to the game that maybe a few thousand castle wars rounds wouldnt hurt :P

 

Stay or don't stay, i don't really care, if it does change i think it should just be lowered to wearing 1 piece maybe, rather than the entire set, then talking to the guy.

I don't really like the idea of having some sort of zeal counter to stop afking. If this were to be implemented then it would either be so easy that players could still afk for 17-18 minutes or it would be so hard that lower-leveled players would have a hard time being considered active. Castle Wars should be open to all players, low-leveled and high leveled (personally I have more fun playing it on a lower-leveled account).

 

I don't have anything against the prestige of the trimmed comp cape. When it's affecting people who don't want anything to do with it, then it needs to be changed. It could just be replaced with an equally difficult task.

Rather than just having to play x amount of games reduce the current number of games required and make it so that you have to win. That way afking won't guarantee any wins and can frustrate a lot of people. Will still be doable of course but will mess up everyone's plans seeing as it becomes more or less unpredictable to calculate the required time and at least half of the afkers will lose every game. Could actually make some people play the game too if they don't have to play as many games and have to make an effort to win.

 

I agree it is broken the way it is right now, makes no sense for it to be an achievement required for the trimmed cape as it doesn't require you to do anything other than being online. Would be annoying for the people who already did it sure, but not allowing the game to progress just because of a few people is ridiculous in my opinion. 2006-2008 training most skills was considerably harder than nowadays and I'm sure it upsets a few people who maxed back then who had to invest double or triple the time than the players of today. It's just something players have to adapt to and learn to live with.

No support. Would be harsh on people that already did it. Jagex should either add something to prevent afking or make afking against the rules and go around and ban people.

I don't think this is a good reason. Just because something is broke on implementation doesn't mean it shouldn't be fixed because people had to play through a broken system.

I think it's going to be unfair no matter what, for example if I was going for trimmed comp I would be frustrated the 100+ Castle Wars games I played in 2005-2007 don't count for anything (I was pretty addicted to it back then).

I feel like it should be changed entirely, make it more objective like, reach this many wins, this many kills, this many flag captures, etc. I know the capes already represent that, but maximize it a bit and make it to where you have to interact with the game more.
