    Seriously just lock all ban threads from this point forward for the next week so we can come here and find posts of value.

    I can't speak for everyone but I know I myself am tired of every thread on the first page being something about a ban. It was fine for a couple days but it is time to get over it and move on.

    Awesome!! Lets close our eyes to the problem and go back to playing a game that has a serious issue! Lets ignore what is happening around us, since it isn't us! Great idea!
     
  8. im sorry if i dont trust alot of people claiming to have not done anything. Why dont i trust them? Because PEOPLE LIE!!! I had a friend who use to play UO and claimed to be Ligit but wasnt. Asked me to fix his pc one day and i saw what he had on his pc and the sites he had been to. even then he claimed he never used anything or did anything illegal.. i still remember the fight we had because i called him out on it when i found his chars afk macroing and he was not even at the computer. how do i know? because i called him and he was out at a family event. i called him out on using and we had a huge fight but later he admited.

    Join a PvP guild and you will see how many people who claim to be str8 faced are not. So no i dont believe these people being banned did nothing. They either gave up the items that got duped, did the duping, or bought a ton of duped items. Now i could be wrong but me thinks not mmmmkay.

    Oh and another expample is i had a friend who CLAIMED to have been hacked and people helpped him rebuild. funny thing about it was about a week later he had 100% matching suit peices to what he had before the hack. He said he got them off a barbed kit he just burned. So what are the chances of burning uber sleeves gloves and legs that match the ones you lost 100%? no to mention about a week later he had his house back in the same location and 2 event rares that he had before the hacked account he still had. he got away with it 2 times the 3rd time he got caught.

    so no i dont trust anyone in this game until they earn my trust and even then i question them.

    you know the old saying, Believe nothing of which you hear and only half of what you see? Well I believe nothing of what i hear about people who did 100% of nothing and got banned.

    What you say is true, Blade, but not universally. This time round, there are people getting banned who are well-known as honest, trusted, honourable and decent players over many years. Those of us lucky enough to know them are convinced of their innocence. It's just like RL - sure, people lie, but not everyone. There's still decent people around in RL, as in UO. but I do accept that everyone's experience is different, and will of course affect their view of the world. All you're saying is that your experience is different from ours - well, from MINE at least.

    This is not intended as a wrist-slap, sorry. :)

    I know the feeling, but this time it's different - can't you tell, from the tone of the threads? It's NOT the true culprits that are getting banned this time it's innocent people. And maybe THAT'S why so many of us are keeping these threads going - because nobody can feel safe now - any one of us could be the next victim. This wasn't the case with previous culls.
     
  11. News Flash:

    I am pro anti cheating exploiting and hacking. I stand strong to that and everyone who knows me knows that. However and this will come as a shock to many people who know me or know of me. My main account has NEVER had a warning or a mark or even a ban against it yet one of my others will be perma banned if anything ever happens to it again. It was almost perma banned last time but EA over turned it and gave me once last chance.

    Why? Because i was Exploiting... *gasp* you read right mr goodie him self who is against cheating exploiting and hacking has himself exploited in the past.

    I have been clean and sobber for over 3 years now. The last exploit i used was the one that almost got me perma banned. It was bringing my red to tram.

    Im dead against all that stuff now and honestly i am pissed at myself for what i did. I wish i could go back in time and change it but i cant. I havent even told people about it because i am ashamed. Now as soon i catch wind of something you bet i report it. I even had a nice little chat with a Dev member about ways to STOP a well known third party program. and from the sounds of it they are already working on a secret weapon against it and all i can say is expect to see more bannings and the use of the program being cut WAY down.

    So this is why i dont trust people who claim to have not done anything. Because i have been in their seat.

    Blade, you're not Mr Goody Good, and you don't have that rep on LA. When Blackrock first started spawning it was quite amazing the number of overland pieces you managed to "cntrl/shift" your way into, now wasn't it?

    The issue Blade is that there is a problem right now. Poeple are claiming that they are being banned for no reason. Regardless of truth, EA/Mythic are engaged in instant banning and presumed destruction of accounts. Asking that we not discuss it or not demand clarification is silly.

    /signed and agreed.

    No one said you shouldnt discuss the bans - how bout doing it one on central thread so that it isnt repeated a 1000 times?

    Also, im quite convinced that while a) there is a possibility of a mistake happening with the bans, I firmly believe that at least 99% of the bans were quite just.

    Unfortunately, every banned player has turned up on the forums saying they are innocent. Lies.

    The worst thing is the fear that is being stirred up - u get people who have no clue about the game who are now afraid of buying a Heart of the Lion becasue they truly believe they can be banned for it.


    Gimme a break. If you are guilty, posting bull**** wont help u one bit. If you are innocent, it wont help one bit either. Go through the proper system (yes, it is too bad it happened over the weekend) and you ll be fine in the end just as others have done...

    I do have to admitt i posten in the other threads....cause i was bored.

    If i really wanted attention , i would have hijacked the thread and changed the subject to ME...post irl pics and put my ICQ and email under them...
    Now that's what i call attention wh0ring.

    As for the ban threads...
    I'm having my doubts..in some cases i think they're lieing..in others i think there's some truth in them.
    Aspecialy the Lucy thread..so many people talked good about her.

    I decided to just take a step backwards and let it flow...
