    Going back to whatever the video thing was and them talking about additions to the game being added. They said any suggestion they found they wanted to add were 2 to 3 cycles in the future from the time they were suggested. So, that being said, I'd like to request the following for 3 cycles from now:

    I would like champ spawns to be added to the Trammel Lost Lands. Doesn't have to be all of them but at least 3 would be nice.

    I would like the rewards for the Trammel(might as well say Felucca since I doubt the loot tables can be split anymore than they are currently) spawns to recycle or include new rewards.

    For those that want to claim the 3 Illshenar spawn and the tokuno spawns are enough I will simply ignore you. The Illshenar spawns are truly horrible. Not because of the paragons but because of all the undergrowth. Horrible. The tokuno spawn is not too bad but it has been done to death. It was the most popular one when all the original stuff was added because it was not riddled with choke points and tangled areas. Oaks is pretty good but, again, it's old. Plus the loss of Karma meant you couldn't chain it.

    I feel that if they were to add the champ spawns in tram lost lands there would be a renewed interest in the champs and you would see more people doing them.

    Note: I'm not asking for powerscrolls. Don't read something that isn't there.

    Your idea is good enough for me. It would also be good if they could fix some of the bugs with them while they're at it. Mephitis pulling the dead, Harrower tentacles spawning in unreachable locations, savage kin paint not always working with Barracoon (and the common exploit people use to circumvent his special ability).

    To add a little bit though I'd like to see a new story arc that takes place mainly in Felucca and revolves around factions. There's been some of these already I think but I'd like another soon.

    Champs spawns in tram would be cool, but only if you can only get +5's, +10's, and +15's.

    +20's should remain in Fell.'

    EDIT: NEW rewards are even better. Sorry didn't read it all.

    A true trammie won't do the ones in Fel, period, just wasted effort to make a spawn for a few people or a certain group. Paragons are not part of a normal spawn and to appear like they do is another bug, imo (else they'd be in All spawns, regardless of location. A champion (paragon) is not called for since the champion already appears at the end). If they're in Tram, I'd show for a bit of fun, powerscrolls or Not, sure many others would as well

    3 development cycles from now, I would like to see a clear gameplan for UO.

    I don't want to see anybody from the dev team whispering or talking back and forth about what they can and cannot talk about.

    I don't want to see any videos that were chopped up by PR.

    I don't want to see any signs that UO is still being treated like it was in the days of OSI.

    I just want to see somebody laying out a plan for UO, and I would like some indication that the people at the top of BioWare actually care about UO's future.

    ^ That... is not going to happen.

    Want to know how I know? I've been here for 12 years. I'll stick to asking for what I think is almost possible and accept what fraction of that I get.

    The SA team was MUCH better overall and seemed to have Woodsman's list covered pretty well... then the whole layoff thing happened and they got shunted over to Bioware (which of course we ALL thought could be a good thing, I mean it's freaking BIOWARE) and since then it's like everything has fallen apart.

    No, the previous team wasn't exactly "perfect", but I had a MUCH better feeling about the future of UO then than I do now.

    I hope I'm wrong, but so far, it doesn't seem that way.

    Then Bioware took all the good people that were on the team and they fired everyone that made too much money.

    Honestly, it was Draconi's leadership that made the communication work. Since he's been gone that has gone out the window. It's hard to represent a game you know little about and don't play. It's all about going through the motions now.

    I'm making an appeal to the 3 people I still know of that have anything to do with UO and what they said the process is, nothing more.

    Good Luck.

    But don't hold your breath, especially when someone says it is really hard to make some pixel crack then email some text and a picture to a vendor.

    This happened because they had a couple of years to show they could grow the game or at least maintain the number of p(l)ayers and didnt. So what happened happened. It is like if your stockbrokers lose you money 3 years consecutively, your going to change your stockbroker.

    Lets not get ahead of ourselves by assuming there will be three more development cycles. In all seriousness I would hate be a developer for UO, working on an underfunded, understaffed, pile of crap and still being expected to grow or maintain subscribers.

    Obviously things are not going as swimmingly as they were a few years ago (which can be said for just about everywhere including outside of UO... I know that my business is insanely busy at the moment, but at the same time, the value of my house is in the toilet), but I wouldn't say that we don't have at least 3 development cycles in UO.

    My friends and I do them all the time. We just try to avoid all the commotion when the Zergs are out.

    I know what you mean there. The part of my request I'm banking on is the fact the code already exists in some fashion or another. These champs are in fel in the lost lands. Doing this won't take an exhaustive effort is it's possible to use that code.

    What would be truly intriguing is if they made the champs drop special items with no properties needed for quests. Similar to utilizing the stygian dragon head that currently has no use.
     
  17. Before they do any more spawns with the Trammel ruleset they'd rather upgrade the rewards of the fel ones because as is, it s close to pointless to do them. And I d rather have them not touched T2A since I like original T2A. But maybe in the legacy dungeons.

    I'd like them to upgrade the fel ones as well. The problem is they get used every day. While "pointless", they are still popular. The ones in Ilshenar and tokuno rarely see anyone at them at all anymore. They were very popular at one time but it takes too many people to do them. They are not as easy to 2 man as the fel ones in the LL or even the dungeons.

    As for liking the orignal t2a that's just selfish. Those places are rarely, if ever, used anymore. The only reason to go to them is a new event or nostalgia or an EM event.

    Changing out the rewards would go a long way and would carry over to the fel spawns as well.

    If new champs are an idea id like to see an elemental champ spawn, mostly for completeness..we has champs for all other super slayer types.
     
  20. It is still popular mainly because of the pvp that occurs.
    Liking T2A is not only about being selfish. T2A fel looks like a factory, while T2A tram is still about as immersive as it ever was. If the land is not used it doesnt use any computing ressources so it's not wasted.
