    This would be the Ultimate PvP - Faction server..

    - You only get one character like with Siege, but there is no soft cap, you can learn all the skills, but can only raise each one to 100.0 of course..

    - At the character creation screen, you pick what faction you want to be in, you can switch factions, when you quit, it would take 3 days of course, and you would switch over to another faction as your choosing

    - All Felucca, there is no Malas, Tokuno, Tram or Ish

    - Siege rules such as no recall, expensive vendor prices, not being able to sell to NPC's, would not apply..

    - Skill gain would be faster than a normal server, and would go at the same pace from beginning to end..

    - There would be no town guards (Nobody would be able to turn red)

    - There would be no insurace, and with no artifacts, would be a pretty damn balanced server (Hint: No Malas)

    - Alignment would work differently, nobody would be able to turn red seeing as how we would all be in factions, unless we kill our own faction, so there would be a new alignment score in the game ranging from -100 to 100.0, if you kill your own faction, you get a alignment hit and become red if you get to a negative alignment, anyone + guards could attack you on sight without getting a alignment hit, to get a positive alignment, you kill the enemy...

    - There would be full loot, you could loot anyone when they die without flagging, even your own faction, their corpse would not have to be bones..

    - Balance between armor - Heavier armor would slow down your character, his casting speed, and his swing speed, but would offer more protection than lighter armor such as leather.. Leather armor is for mages, and heavy armor is for warriors.. (Balance)

    - Diminishing returns would apply on this server

    - Factions would not have stat loss on this server

    What do you guys think?? :D

    If you want factions, every shard has factions.

    If you want Siege-ruleset, there is Siege, and Mugen

    If you want no insurance and balanced equipment properties, your best bet is to join the "we want a classic shard" crowd.

    I'm not saying your idea is BAD (although to be honest it doesn't look very well thought out - raising ALL skills to GM..?), but it's just one more idea in a sea of ideas, and if the huge demand for a classic ruleset shard hasn't yielded any results in the last 9 years or so, I'm quite sure yours won't have any more luck, so there's no point in following it.

    Because it hasn't happend doesn't mean there should be no discussion from the player base about it. Let the devs read it if they like...or not. It's something to discuss...why stop the discussion?...la

    Not sure I like the idea of everyone being able to GM all of the skills. Personally, I'd like to see the old 700 point cap. This would give players a decision to make when it comes to the type of template they use. Most would be PvP templates, but there would be a need for people to play crafters and resource gathers. That would actually require players to interact with the community and in the economy...la

    Hmm, some of your ideas sound simple, but would require recoding of the game...

    First thing that comes to my mind is the test server, but a no rules one *evil grin* :D

    I believe the OP is actually referring to the ruleset Darkfall adheres to.


    Just play Darkfall. I will be.

    I think at that point the best cheater wins. I also Think After A Week Of Domination all the power gamers would move on, as it would become dull.

    Damn a shard like that would actually make me want to play more then a hour a day. I really like that idea of a faction only shard with fel only.

    But I hate to tell you UO is dead even with a new expansion it's still going to die I don't care what anyone of you say.

    The dev team for UO is not good at all my friends, they don't listen to the people that pay and play the game at all.

    If we had ten thousand posts saying do something they wouldn't even make a post to say hey we hear you but we don't care. Becuase it's just that dude they don't care about what anyone wants to see or wants.

    It's like banging your head on a brick wall trying to get anything from the dev team other then what they want to do or say.

    I will say about 3/4 the people that play the game are seriously addicted to it like people get addicted to tobacco. How do I know this? Becuase these idiots sit at the bank and stare at the screen for hours and don't do jack.

    It's becoming very clear to me after seeing how other companies run games that the Ultima Online staff does not care about the people that play the game.

    There should be a forum on uo.com in that forum there should be a sticky thread "SUGGESTIONS TO MAKE UO BETTER"

    That would be the first step in the right direction, all i'm going to say about that.

    ANYWAYS I love the idea of a faction server thats a awsome idea it's a shame we will never get to play on the faction shard :sad4::sad4::sad4:

    This isn't about catering towards reds, everyone would actually be blue on this server, you could only go red if you killed your own faction, other than that, you would be blue, this would basically be the ultimate PvP server, unlike Siege, which is not for player vs player but it is more of a advanced server..

    it's proof that 90% of these posters are trammel carebears.
