    What if we took everyone that still plays siege and we all move to one shard make one guild and see how we do. Yes i know we all dont get along and some may hate each other but think about this. We all go to a new shard make a IMPACT on there shard and just maybe we can pull some people to siege and maybe boost the population. Just a idea if anyone would be down to try it. No harm in trying it right

    I love siege and siege is home. Sometimes its nice to take a little vacation. I just want to see if there is any hope left for this shard before i really sign out. If there is a group of us that go would there be a shard that would suit most of siege.

    Don't get me wrong. I am not knocking the idea. I would love to see it tried. If you go to Cats let me know... I want to mess with a few folks there. :eyes:

    I agree...cant tell you how many time i have found myslef in vent with a person I hated only to become good friends!

    I think that if we pick a shard (one where we ping ok) and make a guild called siege it could be fun, maybe the spark we are all looking for.

    and I think Gu is right imagine the vent...too funny!

    we would need like 20 people to make a run at it!

    I vote Sakie as GM as he is the best pvper I have ever fought (kage is a close second)

    lets pick a shard, make soem tunes and go start owning nubs ( see i have my prodo smack talk goin!)

    off to make dinner but will check back later, just think of how fun it would be to log into a full vent with people ready to fight WITH YOU!

    Sakie your right. We could have all moved to another shard when i be leave mike D wanted to. I for one still want to stay on siege. Now that i really see how dead the shard is i hope more people are willing to try the idea. Im would even go to the shard where he went if we could get siege to go. I mean really whats the worst that could happen end up more dead

    My question is this... Why can you all post and sound so excited about playing another shard but you cant log into Siege...

    Siege is dead because everyone is afraid of pvping and loosing their prescious items...

    Just like Gu since you have been back I have seen you 3-4 times running around each time you ran off and into a house...

    Siege is only dead because you allowed it.

    Kage, I am logged into Siege as often as anyone and the fact is only around 20 people post here and of that 15 actually play. We have lost a few as BFF has and JSV has been gone for a few months now. The fact is currently Siege is all but dead and getting worse everyday, just lost nixon and now Gu is on the fence.

    I am done training up skills, I have more gold then I will ever spend and if we have 5 people on you guys have 2 or like now you have 4 and we have two. been this way for a few months now.

    As I love Siege i have tried to gut it out but quite frankly im a kind of done myself. Still love UO but I am thinking on goin back to prodo just for people, even though i hate most of them.

    Gu's idea about a guild called SIEGE mad up of all Siege players seems like it might be fun, but it will not work without actvie members of TNT and BFF along with all the other PVpers/PVMERS/Crafters who want to take the ride.

    Right now I can either get ganked by 4 BFF, work skills or farm. I choose none of the above, instead i think I will start to work Imbuing up on Atl.

    I fear Siege is done and it is time to move on, I hope we can try Gu's idea!!

    Well....I'm up for anything. As much as I hate working skills, I'm willing to start training some skills on another shard. Damn....this will take some time because I have no other characters except for Siege.

    I would love to except for one thing, no one else plays it.

    Siege has less the 50 active people, 80 tops, the shard is empty.

    Another point is that we are deleting our chars, just playing a different shard instead of quitting.

    That is why I like the idea of a SIEGE guild on a prodo shard, it is better then everone quitting.

    Trust me last night I wanted to start to train up imbuing on Atl and after being logged in for 10 mins I waned to puke, I was like OMFG i need to get at least 4 replicas to make a suit.

    The fact is, I would rather do that then watch the 50 people Siege has drop over the next few months because everyone quit, which is what is happening.

    I made a char last name on ATL. I was wondering if there is someone that we could agree on that we can make a gm. For the guild name i think if we name it something along the lines of siege we be ok. Ill be on ATL today as much as it sucks to train it was nice seeing all the people on that shard. BTW my char name there is gujek to. Ill be playing a mage/archer. If your willing to make the change please let me know and just a quick temp you will be playing. I hope that we have a good part of siege that comes people in guild not in guilds all come please. We are going to need everyone if we want siege to live. Ty Gu'jek

    So the solution to getting more people on Siege is for everyone to leave Siege?

    Am I the only one that thinks this is a stupid effin idea?

    I think the point of this was, there is not enough of us active all at one time to actually have a good pvp scene right now on the shard, and or it gets old fighting same 2-4 people over and over same template same locations nothing new then most of the time we cant run around and find anyone..


    If we combiend our shard to all the actives we have could have a grand ol time on atlantic PvP wise togeather. I dont think its about the shard anymore its about the community enjoying the game that we all love....

    Yes we would love for siege to be populated and love this change and that better etc etc... Obviously it's not happening so we have to make the best of it.

    Whats the chance of us being allowed to transfer our chars from Siege to a prodo shard????

    I mean.....most of us on Siege own 2 to 3 accounts. Allowing us to transfer our char isn't degrading the revenue EA makes.

    i also agree that if the few of us that DO play siege go somewhere else that can only hurt siege further .

    Im not going to prodo .
    i spent many years there and grew so bored i almost quit .

    ive tried free shards . not going back .

    i will play siege or not at all .

    give it time . the new faction system is live on test center as we speak .

    keep the faith

    I'll play Atlantic if that's the server of choice-But, I don't think I have the time that a new guild/group of people need in order to succeed. I think it needs to be a group effort of certain individuals to get the ball rolling and keep things in line.

    Factions aren't the issue right now. Until I see a number of heads that are wanting to attempt this, I'm staying in SL. I took Forsaken out the guild Mike-D got us in, to hold a possible tag, [S|P] - Siege Perilous.

    Great idea! This will pretty much put the final nails in the coffin for Siege Congrats to all who support this horrible idea and for finally killing off what was a great shar.

    Enjoy trammy land.

    It will take some time but when you realize how many people run zoom zoom I hope you all return home and actually help build up our shard.

    The pvp is horrible it's like fighting 15-30 diablos at a time. All you will do is get dismounted and killed by super dreadmares.
