    As a long time player of UO, and both PvMer and PvPer I feel there are 4 main groups of players:

    The PvPers
    The RPers
    The PvMers
    The Collectors

    And all of these groups enjoy one thing: A good EM/GM run event. UO has changed very much over just the past few years: First came stat loss and hally mages, then axers and stun mages, then the introduction of power scrolls, and finally the changes today: chivalry, necromancy, ninjitsu, bushido, faction items, and so much more. Through each era new members perfected these abilities and utilized them to defeat other players. In 2001 a tournament was held to decide who was the best of the best for each world, and who would be known as the of best duelists, the elite 2 on each server. Sadly many of these champions have long since left the game, and consequently left our world without champions. I believe it is time to revive our warriors of Sosaria and let the sword and spells decide who the elite are yet again.

    I still remember seeing the champions of Chesapeake walking the streets, sword in hand and title displayed with pride. They had earned this gift from an event, not been given at random due to muttering the words "All kill" or constantly casting energy vortex's. They fought the best, beat the best, and became the best.

    So I ask you developers, can you revive this old idea? With the new introduction of EM's to this game I feel this could easily be done, and would revive both UO history, and perhaps make some interest in some up coming seer events.

    You forgot to mention crafters and vendors.

    Big mobs, IMHO, should have more of a pvp AI. They should dispel summons at once, attack players that damage them with spell combos, & heal themselves.

    Make the experience more dangerous. With the super powerful templates that players have now they should face monsters that they have to out wit as well as out fight in order to defeat.

    I know.

    "With the new introduction of EM's to this game I feel this could easily be done, and would revive both UO history, and perhaps make some interest in some up coming seer events."

    But it is this event specifically I wish would come back. It was intended to be a reoccurring thing yearly, and when it happened there was extensive interest.

    EM's on Siege!
    I can totaly understand not having an EM on someones home shard for fear of favoritisim... but I just hope Siege can get an EM who at least understands the shard and our unique needs.

    That event was garbage. The even was shoddy and really, most of the BEST PvPrs in the game didnt even get a chance to fight in the tournaments. I know quite a few of the winners, and some of them were plain horrible but, were on at the right time.

    So I wouldnt call it the best of the best. But It would be interesting to see who win that kind of event now.

    I read this thread with the same ideas going through my head. It was badly planned, horribly executed, and never finished anyway, IIRC.

    As I recall, they wouldn't (couldn't) even let murderers enter, since they held the event in town. Or was it moved to Jhelom pits for that reason? It is foggy...

    Don't get me wrong Speedy. It's a great idea to try again, and I would love to see it, but please don't glorify what the last "Tournament of Champions" was. Please. Think of the kittens.
