    That's how many points the Asuka shard showed up with on uo.com, practically overnight.

    Crazy, eh?

    Danny, it's actually higher than that. If you add up the total kill points for the top 10 individuals in each faction on Asuka (some of which are not in guilds), you get numbers like this:

    COM - 156,256,223 (last top 10 individual listed has 369,362 points)
    Minax - 189,113,005 (last top 10 individual listed has 979,584 points)
    SL - 1,434,255,155 (last top 10 individual listed has 55,955,364 points)
    TB - 6,366,870,652 (last top 10 individual listed has 463,947,592 points)

    Asuka Total from "top 40": 8,146,495,035

    It looks like Yamato's on track to build up a huge pool of kill points as well. On Yamato, adding up the top 10 individuals in each faction gives the following totals:

    COM - 142
    Minax - 3,030,776,607
    SL - 1,136,994,394
    TB - 2,182,526,391 (last top 10 individual listed has 30,779,256 points)

    Yamato Total from "top 40": 6,350,297,534

    When you gain that much points from killing opposite factions in towns you can farm that many in hours.. The devs are seriously just dumb as ****.
     
  4. wish i could kill one and come back just to get 30K points :|

    They funny thing is people are seem to be racking up these points to prove a point to the devs. Look at the characters names jj, kk, and stuff like that. But I am pretty sure we all new this would happen. I rather have the old style of factions with only to factions battling out than this meaningless system they have now.

    It doesnt really hurt anything so who cares. But I could have told you this would happen with the imbalance of the point transfer due to order/chaos and warzone.

    When the guy gets 5 dumby accounts makes 20,000,000,0000 on 25 guys and holds like 10 -13 places of rank 10, in 2 factions, that means there are 10-13 less people in 2 factions who cannot get rank 10. Also if gets enough dumby accounts he can take up all spots and it raises the bar for rank 10.. to like 10,000,000,000. Which will force people out of his faction. So he could even do it to every faction. Which he should just to prove a point. So you are very wrong... It ****s a lot of people over actually..

    I'm actually glad this dude took the time to do this because I wanted to do it and then cancel all of my accounts and have all the rank 10s on 1 shard taken on deactivated accounts.

    Just for grins, had to check Asuka and Yamato this morning to see how the numbers have changed.

    Asuka as of Monday morning:

    COM - 214,962,560
    Minax - 270,101,161
    SL - 1,250,110,732
    TB - 6,309,572,558

    Asuka Total from "top 40": 8,044,747,011 [Loss of 166,322,567 points.]

    Yamato as of Monday morning:

    COM - 214
    Minax - 3,039,220,557
    SL - 1,136,994,344
    TB - 2,178,304,271

    Yamato Total from "top 40": 6,354,519,386 [Loss of 184 points.]

    Apparently some folks on Lake Austin are also experimenting with multiplying their kill points, so here are their "top 10 from each faction" figures from this morning as well:

    COM - 7,009
    Minax - 126,431
    SL - 28,543
    TB - 293

    Lake Austin Total from "top 40": 162,276 kill points.

    And finally, kill points for the top character on each shard as of this morning:

    Arirang - Double D (TB) 106
    Asuka - gg (TB) 957,294,358
    Atlantic - Wild Berry (COM) 946
    Baja - Manticore (SL) 273
    Balhae - Anne (TB) 216
    Catskills - Cyanide (Minax) 522
    Chesapeake - Tom (SL) 133
    Drachenfels - Gareth (SL) 279
    Europa - Traveller (SL) 508
    Formosa - Will Durant (TB) 301
    Great Lakes - COKE and SON (Minax) 536
    Hokuto - Stere'o'type (SL) 483
    Izumo - kogiku (SL) 589
    Lake Austin - Fish Deoderant (Minax) 55,392
    Lake Superior - wow dumb md (COM) 240
    Legends - Larc Eny (Minax) 724
    Mizuho - Emily (Minax) 435
    Mugen - Henrietta (Minax) 101
    Napa Valley - Moosehead (SL) 924
    Oceania - Caramon (TB) 442
    Origin - Tyrant (COM) 129
    Pacific - Avast Eggy Bum (COM) 663
    Sakura - An Corp (COM) 198
    Siege Perilous - Forsaken (SL) 222
    Sonoma - Joker (Minax) 460
    Wakoku - kosige (TB) 738
    Yamato - Dias die altarg (Minax) 1,223,468,710

    Note: You may notice no big changes from day to day for individual characters, especially. I believe the kill point totals on UO.com only show the kill points the character had the last time it was logged in and characters will only show up for 90 days (or it could be just 30 days) after their last log-in or after they are deleted or moved to another shard.

    It's funny how they haven't even addressed the problem publicly... like they don't know or don't feel like dealing with a very simple problem. This is why factions have been dead for so long. The devs throw some new **** into it, let it **** the factions up even more and then completely ignore it. Anyone who sticks around after this **** show probably has to wait about 6 years for them to even start talking about looking into the factions. They will probably talk about whats wrong with it with the community and then go ahead and just throw in a bunch of unnecessary **** that will unbalance it more..

    Previously the point system was balanced. There was basically a "max" number of points out there at any given time that depended on how many people were in factions. The points would only be increased if a new player joined factions. You could potentially inflate the point pool by joining a character, killing them to get all 5 of their points, resign, rejoin, etc...

    The new system screwed the balance up. By killing a member of an opposing faction (order/chaos) you get double the points, but the person you killed only loses 1/2 of what you got. They basically use multiple accounts and kill their new characters over, and over, and over, and over. Under the old system this wouldn't have done anything but trade points back and forth.

    What is the point? I just keep a happy 19 punkte for rank 10 items. Having more than that seems like a waste, and if anyone seriously considers points to mean anything, as they once had, they are just kidding themselves.:scholar:
     
  17. How can they kill theyr mules over and over again, i created one mule just to try to get a few points to wear some armour, got a point the first time, but now several weeks later i still cannot get points from that char again. I even tried to quit him from faction, join him in another faction.
    But still i get the message : you recently killed this opponent and no points given.

    How long do i really have to wait to get a secound point from that char?

    You are clearly trying to abuse the system. So instead of telling you what you're doing wrong, I'll just tell you to go **** yourself.

    OK, dumb Q but then the only dumb one is the one not asked so;
    is there a place that shows faction membership per shard, either by character or by guild?
    And also where do I go to get the info on who has what in kill points such as you've been posting here?

    OK OK that's two Qs but thanx
