    Ya know somethimes even with all the bugs in the game and the roblems it has .Its the little things in the game thats wrong that annoy me the most.Like the following quick list.

    1.Luna mage shop sign -why is the sign on the inside of the building instead of the outside like others?

    2.Recalling-every once in awhile recalling the trees all turn dead and the Fel musics plays even tho im in trammel?

    3.Monsters unreachable-When monsters die sometimes youy cant loot there corpse they seem to be floating ?

    4.Monsters that can cast through walls and target me with spells but i cant target them?

    This is just a small annoying list of things that someday i hope to see fixed.

    THE MOST ANNOYING BY FAR! GRABBING SOMETHING OUT OF SOMEONE'S CORPSE, AND THEN THEM DOUBLE CLICKING THEIR CORPSE BEFORE YOU DROP IT IN YOUR PACK. INSTA-CRASH.

    Hail: Having your bank box open, and it closes if you open your paper doll.

    But for me, far an away, is the click 247 times to place a house. You see the outline for a 14x15, you walk around it, and maybe a 15x16 will fit, so you cancel. Now, not only will a 15x16 not seem to fit, you can't even get the 14x15 that you had to go back down again. [​IMG]

    Dying like I Just did, and trying to gather your stuff (Siege), and having water elementals bombard you with fireballs.

    After 10 deaths I finally got it [​IMG] lol

    Not in any praticular order:

    1.) How other people decorate their houses.

    2.) Seige players.

    3.) Only being able to enter your house on the south.

    4.) Make larger boats.. like in the swamp city.

    5.) Line of sight.

    6.) Tamers that leave pets at spawn points.

    7.) No foilage on Tram side if you go to Fel.

    8.) Luna

    9.) Haven

    10.) Hasn't happened yet, but the reconstruction of Mag WILL LOOK HORRIBLE.

    11.) Artifacts.

    12.) Golems, the new Blackthorn and any other MACHINES that DONT belong in a medieval setting.

    13.) EA customer service.

    14.) The price of gas/smokes.

    15.) Heartwood.

    16.) The new faction system. (see how long before its broke again.. seriously)

    17.) Scripters.

    18.) UOA.. you can play with it, but I bet you cant play without it.. (baseball/steroids anyone...?)

    All i can think of. [​IMG]
     
  8. not being able to log into my character because i was attacked, even though i didnt auto defend or do anything but run away.
     
  9. monsters casting from screens away... its like they use that zoomed out feature they introduced with kr and they can cast all the way across the map, when will 2d get the zoom feature, thats what i want.

    For me its def the bank box/paperdoll dilemma. This is highly annoying with my archer when I'm filling my quiver.
     
  11. Stuff that doesn't stack even when it is suppose to - thorns, scrolls,orange petals

    Not having a spell book update the list when you put a new spell in it. It used to. I can't remember when they broke it.

    Not having room in your pack for a bod reward even tho there is plenty of room.

    Hum.......

    1. Finding that there are some shops and buildings in some of the cities with missing tiles or..... missed tiles .... or they forgot that NW corner piece....

    2. Bank bug where when someone trades with you at the bank the moment one of the two of you takes a step..... one of you crashes.....

    3. empty plots with nothing built on it..... empty forever... or UGLY homes..

    4. Finding a beautiful house design someone did...... only to find they made it PRIVATE!!.....

    5. Having a nice spawn spot all to yourself and your finally starting to see some good gains.... and someone comes along and takes over the spot..... cause they can kill things in one hit..... or they get half everything and you no longer get any gains....

    6. LAGGG!!!!!! It kills.

    7. Going to deco a house and finding the tiles you would really want.... aren't there in that particular style.... *frowns*

    8. Realizing that the really nice throne chairs only face S and E....
     
  16. <u>Not in any particular order...</u>
    1. Monsters that can cast 2-3 times as fast as players that can stack spells player can't.
    2. Overpowered Necro Monsters in general.
    3. Monsters have almost no line of sight rules, but players do
    4. Monsters (one monster) that can hit you from off screen well before you ever see them
    5. Monsters (one monster) that can hit you with 3 spells at the same time 2 screens away while your hidden.
    6. 1 hit death monsters, 2 hit death monsters that do the 2 hits at the same time, 3 hit death monsters that do the 3 hits within 1 second.
    7. Speedhacking Fallen warriors, that follow and target you to the ends of the earth, hide leave the area come back before it gets killed it will resume that targeting.
    8. The new NPC vendor system done without much thought, doom bandaids were upto 146 gps about 2 months ago when i was there. Instead of syncronizing npc prices the now let them escolate forever.
    9. Greater Dragons in destard
    10. Tammer having Greater Dragons
    11. Reverants that move twice the speed of players
    12. Reverants that don't disappear after the death of the target
    13. The mass excidus of players in the past 2 years
    14. Apparently elaborately designed homes in Tram that are private, why bother
    15. The new resourse gathering system, which makes it misserable to fill bads without buying from scripters. And makes it nearly imposible to make stoneware. As if mining and chopping wood weren't tedious enough.
    16. The new (started right after samari) everybody has to have everything mindset of the DEVs, to balance PVP. This includes doubling gold drops, upping all loot, the massive amount of uber items entering from the ML quests, swoops, missmas. Runic changes that made the runics more usefull to the now everything must be uber (but didn't gfix the dropped properties) Theres no going back from these.
    17. Escorts that just ignore you after you take them where they want to go and you get no credit.
    18. The 24 hours wait period after the 5th escort of the day, should be on UO time every 8 hours.
    19. Escorts that no longer will acknoledge that yu have taken them to magencia
    20. The everything must be in groups, mindset of devs since Paragons. Alot of PAYING casual players left out of frustration and boredom, from the now lack of stuff for them to do by themselves.
    21. BOS changes to combate scripters, of course putting players actually player the game at disadvantage to scripters, as scripters don't care they have to recall, where as this actually make the game less enjoyable to a real player.
    22. BOSs changes distroying one of the best quest in the game. Well, not distroying it, just distroying any reason to ever do it again. A quest that had a reasonable number of actions with a cunsumable reqard that was not overpowering.
    23. Statues and other things stuck on the ground throughout the lands
    24. The mindset of DEVs that the more tedious they make somthing the less people will script. And of course the opposite is true.
    25. The comunity collection system
    26. The distruction of most of the interesting parts of the island of haven
    27. The ugly new monstrousity in the middle of the town of new haven. Not sure what that is for, but it obviously took little thought or effort to put there.
    28. Magencia, well magencia was always quite boring so no I don't care. Just fix the escorts there.
    29. No changes to items to steal since samari, and the lack of imagination put into the items stealable in samari.
    30. The recall zone removed from the mines, never understood why they bothered doing this. Make it extremely hard for a tamer to tame and leave with those furious killing machine fire beetles?
    31. Making us collect things for years
    I could go on and on, but I am certain you don't want me to.

    I would like to thanks the DEVs for finally fixing the abuse of free trial accounts.
     
  17. The one I hate is monsters can chase you all over the world but a pet following you gets stuck on a tree in the middle of nowhere...

    -P.E.

    1. This is mostly changed, but I hated when my pet would decide to charge and teleport on the most complicated path, around corners, to attack the weakest creature in the area while ignoring all the closer, more dangerous opponents. Then to add insult to injury, when called to return, the same pet would completely forget the way back and stand stuck on the smallest rock or twig.

    2. I hate it that I have about 30 BoS that my vendors are never gonna sell at any price.

    3. This one has been with me for over 7 years. You know how if you miss clicking on an item in a container, you end-up dragging the containeron screen? Well, I open a container, I hold down the mouse button to drag an item to be placed elsewhere. The pack itself gets dragged 1" - 3" but I am, in fact, holding the item. And, of course, the bag usually get dragged over the destination container which means I must start the process all over. How do both of these (dragging and selecting) occur at the same time?

    4. The RNG..the Rotten Number Goofup.

    Shoddy tradecraft day one. I like to think of it like this...

    "DERT! Dats my you oh!"

    10 years old... Why do reapers still spawn in the ocean?

    Devs should have that question posted on their poster board....

    Why do Reapers still spawn in the ocean???

    Dert! Dats my you oh!

  22. The fact that every single container used to decorate every single land since SE is purely deco and you cant open them and noting spawns in them at all.

    And the missing NW corners in building supposedly designed by "professionals"

    RANDOM ores and wood. This is the single stupidest PITA idea in game yet. Not only does it make several things in game uber tedious but also ruined 5+ years of mapping. And from a RP stand point.... I dont go chop oak from a pine tree and i sure dont go mine for gold in a garnet mine. All because of some future super duper idea that my never see fruition that some dev came up with.

    Using the disguise kit and having all of my macros go bye-bye if I log out.

It's very bothersome, especially since this has been a problem for nearly a decade...la

    All they did was fix a bug that was in the system. The system was always designed for ore to change as people worked the veins. If you are a recall miner that wants to use books to mark ore and come back there in the future for the ore then you are screwed (as well as most scripters), but if you actually enjoy mining the way it was designed...you walk the mountain mining the whole thing then you are still fine. This is actually kind of a nice change for me because I never really got into recall mining and I walk the mountains instead.

    1. When you teleport into a lagged area (Moonglow is a good example) and you cant move, yet one of EA's oh-so-brilliant-one-friggin-hit-kills-you-even-with-all-70s monster (like a daemon bezzie) is miraculously unfettered by the lag and zeroes in on you from across the screen and kills you before you can take one step.

    2. That damn quiver bug -- if you try to drop arrows into an open empty quiver, you'll lose the cursor and not get it back.

    3. Backpacks on vendors.

    4. The fact that you get a cookie cutter response to go to the website no matter what you page with. Why bother waiting in the queue? It's insulting.

    5. On the forums: Morons who think posting condemnations on other peoples play styles, chiding inquiries instead of actually answering them, and calling complaints "whining." I know that's a phenomenon of forums in general and not just UO, but its annoying all the same. Do you really think it makes you look clever, smart or like a big man? Hey, splendid if its building your abysmal self-esteem in your own mind. But it just makes the rest of us see you as a bitter, unpleasant jackass.

    As in life, a good policy is, when you have nothing constructive to contribute to the conversation, keep your mouth shut. A big part of being an adult is realizing people are going to see things differently, and that you do not have to agree with what they say or accept it as truth. Being obnoxious in a lame attempt to impress people is a big part of being a child.
