Blue faction groupies....

    So Heres my rant on the ever common "Blue Faction Groupie"

    This common species of trammy can be found trailing behind the real fighters that actualy had the balls to join a faction. on occasion they can be found standing around the yew gate or wherever there are factions fighting.

    Most of the time they will not be alone, as the thought of traveling in fell alone is "scary" .

    Also be warned, they do like to bring dragons with them, as this makes them feel safe.

    If you are to meet one of these dreaded "Groupies" do your best to not talk to said Groupie.. as you will be met with a barrage of nasty words!!

    *******BREAKING NEWS*******************************

    We go now to our reporter on the scene at a well known faction house, looks like the forces of [MIN] and [SL] are slugging it out!!!

    Ahhhhh what have we here, who are these two blue folks walking around amongst this chaos?

    [reporter] Hey there Mr blue 1, what ya doing here with these faction folks?

    [Blue 1] Pfft screw off

    [reporter] Im just wondering what you have to gain from dispelling creatures and spreading feilds all over the place?

    [Blue 1] well wtf man i gots nothin else to do, i midas well bother somone...

    [reporter] wouldnt it be more fun to join a faction and fight alongside friends!?

    [blue 1] Wha?! screw that i dont wanna get killed, PLUS i might get to cast a spell on a red if im lucky! wait till i tell all my friends in tramm. ima take a screeny of it as proof!

    [blue 1] my buddy here once hit a red with a spell ask him he a vet.

    [reporter] Is this true? did you really cast a spell on a red?

    [blue 2] hell yeah its true, he was fightin these other faction guys and i was like *pew pew* and hit him in the face with a ebolt!

    [reporter] What happned then?

    [blue 2] Well that wimp died, so i stood over him and was like you muh Beeetch and took a screeny!

    [reporter] Thats pretty umm cool..

    [blue 2] hell yeah!

    [reporter] So tell me what keeps you guys from joining a faction?

    [blue 2] well like i dont wanna get killed, if im blue i can attack the red ones, and have fun without actualy having to worry ya know? plus i kinda suck at the whole pvp thing.

    [reporter] well ya know theres only one way to get better.

    [blue 2] well yeah i know, i figure after another year or so of casting feilds and running after fights i have nothing to do with ill be ready, Then watch out!!!!

    [reporter] There ya have it folks a look into the "Blue Groupie" back to you bob..

    *****************End Sat Link**********************

    So i think yall see where im comming from with this, nothin worse than a trash talkin no skill trammy runnin around faction fights messin with everyones groove.

    I really didn't make it through all of that but...

    Why limit the community even more..? Even worse in a PvP sense.

    Let all players travel to Fel and eliminate guard zones. The end.

    Most of my posts are from downtime at work. And I avoid PvP in general, I can't stand children.

    Wow, really?? I mean seriously?!? So 2 players were annoying you in fel? And you came to stratics to post a really incredibly long winded story about trammys. Hmmm... Does anyone else see the lunacy of this? The point of fel, by the way, is killing people that annoy you. Whether it's the stupid hat they are wearing or being annoying, or their guild title. So I'll ask the obvious, why didn't you kill them if they annoyed you?

    I thought the point of Fel was to play Ultima Online in a non-restrictive ruleset...

    Silly me!

    Still don't understand why folks who enjoy peerless and champs, in addition to PvP, are trammies. Very confusing to me, but ok.

    The story was out of context, and the news cast was a product of boredom..

    since nobody can read between the lines here ill break it down super barny style so even you seasoned trolls can understand my point here..

    when im having a nice faction battle i find it annoying to have all these random blues (non factions) throwing stone walls, and energy feilds down all over to mess up fights. or dispelling any summons that may pop up anything they can do to get involved with the fight that they can.

    Now as for the trammy thing, its just a guess. personaly i could care less . more marks in fell is great. BUT i cant kill them all, granted i do whack the more annoying ones from time to time but i prefer to not have ALL my toons red. least not when its for pure personal gratification. if they got rid of insurance, thats a different story.

    Now also let me say in the big picture of things im glad folks can do whatever they want more or less, just like i can come here to rant about it.

    I don't think you can appreciate where rips is coming from unless you play a faction character that is also red...i have a red on chessy in com and i have to fight off 5-10 blues who sit in guards with dragons while i fight 5-10 foa (minax) who zerg the shard...it's extremely irritating.

    Well I can see your point, my shard is freakin' dead. So I would say you are pretty lucky to even have people there. Need any guildies?? I have a red necro-Mage ready to xshard. Pm me if your interested.

    Factions on Chesapeake? You mean you have a character to sit around in Luna who had a murder count once a few years ago right?

    Yeah , they just hover around the gate picking each others noses waiting for a kill shot... You know what else is great??? Blue stealth archers randomly dismounting people... Probably the most scaredy cat template in the history of UO :[.

    Well TBH it's kind of your own fault if you fight them at the guard zone. FoA does zerg it up but you can lead them away from the gate itself. The GS blue gank squad on chessy really doesn't leave a 4 screen radius from the moongate. If they do, just cast one spell on one of them and they scatter back.
