    ..and the valiant True Brits fight it, the evil EVIL EVIL council of mages decided to come and raid! Oh no!! "THERE ARE 50+" the TB scream!! Swords and arrows and magic fly everywhere!! And amongst the dust stands the the true victors with their "50+" ready to confront the true harrower!!



    [​IMG]



    After much hacking and slashing and many magic spells, we were able to defeat the beast of beasts!! And with it, many stat scrolls!!

    TB has suffered many casualties and possibly even a crack in the foundation of the alliance!! Friends bickering, guildmates fighting, death was everywhere!! Evil wins again..


    Feeling Evil

    Evil on a night like this
    Evil tasting like a twisted wish
    Evil paralized upon the ground
    Evil tastes the tears of fear
    Evil tainted sounds of cheer
    Evil dripping down; your blood of hate
    Evil tearing down your helpless fate
    Evil swears that by the night's end
    Evil won't say it was all pretend
    Evil because Death will follow you
    Evil until full content
    Evil pleasured to full extent

    All joking/goofing/poetry/making fun of you aside..


    Do you really consider your 2nd harrower a win? I mean really? What is a "win" to you? "KILLING" the harrower? If so, congrats on your "WIN". Next time, we will take it and not kill it, and simply let it sit there then. Truth, We simply don't have the MANPOWER to hold off 30+ people, and 10+ dragons &&& kill the harrower with 7 people. I'm sorry lol.


    Besides that, we PURELY dominated the thing. I am sorry that we can't stat the blues, but, MYSELF ALONE, killed 28 people and 23 dragons (With WODs). You guys had SO MANY PEOPLE, and I guarentee every orange in your guild was stated at least once. We had, I believe, 4 deaths (1 stat'd death from a res kill, the rest from blue dragons) among the 7 of us in 2 hours. How many did your side concur?

    We didn't take screenshots (I dont think) because of all the hectic stuff going on. When your outnumbered 4+ to 1, it's a little harder. Although, like I've been asking, if someone sends me a screen shot utility link or something, I'll try to work it in, because print screen in that scenario just doesn't work. :)


    But again, no trash talk here. Just asking if you REALLY considered that a win? Because if so, that reminds me of the PVPer who says "YAY! 8 of my guildies died, I ran out of the spawn and lived!! WE WON!!!"

    Good times. :thumbup1: Pop more.


    PS: Trammy guilds not associated with this alliance; feel free to get ahold of me. We are willing to do a few public harrowers for you and show you what real defense is, and not let you die 15+ times like those "VALIANT TB's" do. :thumbup1:

    PSS: If you took screenshots or whatever, why don't you show them the 30+ bodies and the 15+ dragon corpses spread across the floors? Lol.

    First I would like to congratulate you. I was not involved in the first harry but I did show up for the second. Your team did an EXCELLENT job with team work and staying alive. I think maybe what, two of your team died at max? I like foes as tough as you guys, it helps me learn and that is all I really care about.


    The above quote is both true and false. I died early on with my first character and he went into stat, the thing went on so long though he was able to come back after stat and he did not die a second time. However it is also false, you did not stat every orange. When my first character was in stat I went back with another TB and did not die, to opposing factions or spawn. It seems dog form really helps keep you alive, especially in situations where running isn't necessary or even an option really.

    Considering this was like my second harry ever, I am happy with the results.

    I am pretty sure we outnumbered you by well over 4 to 1. (I do see that you put 4+). However you still managed to sustain but two deaths and take out a large number of us RP'ers (me), trammies (whoever considers themselves a trammy) and miscellaneous pvpers. I do mean this sincerely when I say you did well.

    However, the fact that we did kill the harry, get 5 25 stat scrolls and miscellaneous lower end scrolls is, I feel, applaudable. Especially considering many there were first or second time harrow killers.

    I went as a defender to learn, I definitely feel I learned. So thank you and I look forward to our next encounter. ROUH has always been a great foe.

    As I said, all smack-talk aside. That was a pretty good breakdown. Do you guys have a reporter I can get in touch with on this shard for fights?

    Yeah I wasn't at the first one either. Why don't we post screenies? Cause we really don't care. We will do more harrys. You are welcome to help kill the harry and roll or you and try your luck and raid.

    Dont forget to mention that the first harry was a free for all. TB was fighting TB, TNK was fighting with CIA, just like you said.

    Congrats on your harrower! Great Job! You must not do them very often?

    Which one was yours?! Lol. And on that note; with all the pvp tamers nowadays, I think they should extend bars to..

    10 Party Bars
    10 "PEOPLE" bars (anyone not partied)
    && 10 animal/spawn bars!! (Any pet or NPC aka Barracoon, rat mage, dragons, etc)

    /signed from Lox :p

    There was a protector but I believe in the confusion not everyone turned in their scrolls. The issue with Public spawns of course, it is entirely possible some damage dealers didn't get protected, I wasn't the one protecting so I do not know. Everyone had a good time and no one left empty handed. The orchestrator even handed out a +25 of his own he had already to someone that was overlooked in the lotto.

    Nastia Cross Guest

    Rolling for scrolls is kinda lame. Drops should be keep what you get. Then use the protector's scrolls to give out to anyone who needs them. The +25 stat scrolls we got from the first harrower were given to guildmates that needed them for new chars for free. We take care of each other in RUOH.

    Commendable Nastia, it sounds as if ROUH has a really great tight nit group of people. Something to certainly be proud of.

    I was just happy the orchestrator of this harrower sent the invite, being my second harry ever it was really exciting.

    As do most guilds.
    That's what I fail to understand about the circle.
    As you see from Podolak's response he's just happy to have been invited. As is the case I think for a lot of the participants.
    They do not see the whole picture and have been convinced that it's some sort of honor and privilege to be invited no matter how many times you die or if you walk away with something or not.
    If there are people in your guild/alliance who haven't eaten a 25 stat scroll and you are rolling for scrolls...there's something wrong.
    If there are people in your guild/alliance who are holding scrolls or substituting lower level scrolls for 25s there's something wrong.
    If you have more than one protector at any spawn, there's something wrong.
    If anyone in your group dies with over 4-1 odds there's something wrong. I don't care how "trammy" you are you know how to crossheal.

    Sounds to me like not everyone even wants to be on the same page as everyone else in the alliance.
    Sounds like there's a lot of using of the "alliance circle" instead of community.

    I wasn't there. I don't know what happened. I am only judging by the posts here.

    Hey Flutter!

    Just wanted to mention the harry wasn't the Circle Alliance's, some of us were there by invite.

    I died once because I was trying to hit the opposition from behind and was by myself. (ROUH, I was the character named "Michael" who got revealed in that back hallway if you even noticed). When I was with the group I didn't die again, due to cross healing.

    This was my experience though, other's may differ.

    Is that true? oh sh*t!

    Well, I was the protector for the Harry and anyone willing to come right out and tell me I'M CHEATING someone by saying "something's wrong if you only got 5 +25''s".... well, step right up.....

    Not only was my count accurate, I even grab some stat scrolls of my own to pass out.

    You all run your guild's the way you want to and we'll do the same, um-k?

    The first Harry, which COM did take was a cluster-F of the first-rate kind. The second was started and finished by my guild and a myriad of Circle Alliance folk, MANY of which were first timers. No one is saying it was merely "worth the experience" and that's it, they are saying that it WAS a good experience, period.

    I can give credit, where credit is due. COM had a great showing for the second Harry and nearly had us, but you know the saying "horseshoes and hand-grenades"......

    Just wanted to point out that not all pvp guilds are strictly pvp either. As I've mentioned before RUOH is very much about helping all of its members and the community. Personally I pvm, craft, garden, gather resources, house design and deco, etc. Sometimes these things keep me so busy I can't get out into the field. Lox, Kengo, Monty and I all craft our guilds suits on the various shards we have characters on. Many guild members gather resources to this end. Just because we are in a "pvp" guild certainly does not mean we are by any means one sided individuals. We're multi talented.

    ... I only read the very first post in this entire thread at the moment that I posted my reply here. I plan on reading more of it later. But, I will study this thread and I will consider it quite possibly the best thread of information on the true current pvp "atmosphere" in Catskills. I think it will be enlightening.

    As of this moment, I remain neutral. I do have "old friends" on both sides of the fence though. And I so very much hate to "choose sides". So, I guess I am one of the very best to be an honest un-biased opinion here. Should be a good read. =-)

    What does it matter what activities we "emphasize"? Just because people enjoy pvp does not mean that they do not do anything else. Just because people pvp does not mean they are bad people (in game or outside of the game). We are smaller in size because we like to be smaller in size. Forget the propaganda already. Some pvpers are bad, some trammies are bad, some people are both pvpers and trammies and some of that group are bad. We all play UO how we chose to play. We pay for our own accounts so we have that right. Your group has a community of players and so do we. Let's leave it at that.

    For the record; unless people are extremely bored, no one really reads super long posts (Myself included). Being as its 530am and I have insomnia, you were lucky lol. And even so, I only got about 1/2 way through it. Next time, act like you are writing for an elementary child. You will get more reads, and more responses this way. Otherwise; people will just scroll right past it.

    Just food for thought.

    PS: JEEZ! Even my quoting of you is huge! :lol:

    Funny thing is

    Funny thing is, RUOH for most part is getting owned, Im not saying the 50 vs 8 or whatever. But persoonally, weve owned them when they had like 5, and we had 3 or even 2 vs 3. Were coming for you :p As for trammel guild keep it up! You guys are doin awesome. The best thing u can do is stand up to them, they dont like it in the end, shows as a team, trammel players can do just as well in pvp, as they do in pvm. Even if u got the numbers, U got friendships. In fel they come and go, as fast as u make them. Just stick with ur guilds and dont let their drama bother you. RUOH will fade down, but in the end, you still have ur friends. Also dieing is part of the game. Only way to learn is to die. lol But have fun guys, own them reds, youll get better as you fight them more, and learn the cheap tricks they use, and use it on them. :p

    Pit keep up good work man. I think ur doin great,
    ! Mucho wub! All the blues are rockin!!!!!:grouphug:

    Glad things are active on the shard with harry's and pretty open and not secretly hidden.

    On a side note and not in any form of any attack. I PvP but I also like to do bods and imbueing. I also like to do some gold farming ( Yes I kill monsters in the game and just have a daily goal set) I enjoy all aspects of the game. Just wish I could RP :p I wtfpwned thee you noob scallion. See, it just doesn't work for me.........:(

    The RP community is always looking for new members. I am a poor example of an RP'er but I'd be happy to show you the ropes as I know them.

    Ummm we're getting owned? I would like to see some evidence of that....We were at the gate for a couple of hours last night and we could barely get anyone to come out of their houses. We did put several in stat that dared to come out of their house.

    LOL PWNED! JK

    Last night had a fun 2v2.

    Rabid and myself vs. Black Magic and Caedmon. Lasted about 20 minutes, faught everywhere.

    Was a exciting fun fight. I was on my mage, Rabid was an archer.

    Black Magic and Caedmon = Necromages.

    It is tough to get a fight like that with RUOH because it seems RUOH's temps involve pets (mostly). And that isn't a knock on ruoh. Everyone has their strategy. But when it comes to exciting fights, it's hard to get that with ruoh as it is usually only "dismount, all-kill" with them.

    I mean, you can knock us and call us cheaters/speeders/scriptors, fine whatever. We don't care, we shrug it off because thats the excuse most people use when they die. But now you are claiming we all play tamers?

    I'll let the UO website && links above be all the evidence you need for that false accusation.

    Yes, dread mare and cu-side dismount temps. Sorry for calling you "Tamers!" which I did'nt.

    I didn't say anything about scripts did I?

    There is nothing wrong with using pets. It's okay.

    Knight of Knight and Lox comes to mind. I am sure you have more people, but it is rare to get fights like the one above with you guys, all I am saying.

    Also, in regards to your "proof." A skill average page is not proof FYI. It is just an average of the skill used when compared to other skills of every character in the guild. You can have 10 crafters with magery to pad the stats if you wish.

    GRI has tons of dismounters right? Well according to this:

    http://my.uo.com/cgi-bin/guilds.pl?a=b4219816512a1d3e:8

    It appears we don't have many at all, when in fact a TON of people in GRI have archery. Just everyone and, their alt, and their alt's dog have magery and other skills that throw that number to the lows.

    You can relax now sir, I was not attacking you and yoru guild! I will see you and your cu-side later.

    Ok your reply didn't prove anything....and really didn't make much sense, but you seem to be proud of it.....I seriously doubt you've even offered to duel any of us. But I'll duel you, just icq me 425254612. I'll probably be on after 10:00 pm EST tonight.
