    how is if a person is gray and you tell your pets to attack them... They run in house until they turn blue
    Then they can come out and continue to attack you but appear blue to you rather then gray?
    So if you are in guard zone while they are killing you your character will automatically swing if someone
    is attacking it say for example using a spell and whether you tab in or out doesnt fix it at all because
    the person could essentially sit there and spam weaken non stop and as soon as your character automatically
    punches this blue it will flag you gray and you can get guard wacked... Is this not screwed up or what?

    The person should have still been gray if he was able to attack me (me being a blue the entire time).
    But instead he turned blue to me while he was still able to hit me all he wanted.. If I hit him I woudl flag
    gray... Now onto the part about guard zone... That is where this gets you because as soon as you flag gray
    out comes "GUARDS" and bam. Is this intended to be like this?


    (Note that in the beginning of this fight the BLUE player was the one that attacked the GRAY player that ran into the house... Both players never left the same location by recalling out or leaving at all)

    Player A is grey, and he became grey 1:45 seconds ago. Player B is blue and attacks player A by issuing an All Kill command. Player Bs pets fail to deal any dmg to Player A in the next 15 seconds at which point Player A turns blue yet player B is grey to player A and bc A is now BLUE if Player B DAMAGES A in the Gzone then he gets whacked.

    1) Its about when dmg is dealt not simply attacking.
    2) There are multiple timers involved which can be watched closely and abusednto Gwhack people.
    3) I pretty much only PvP on a RED so this is all a vague memory heh...probably wrong to a degree but Gwhacking people was never my strong suit... Not getting Gwhacked is much simpler....DONT go near a guardzone if you have attacked anyone in 2 minutes..& remember to TABA OUT...

    On another note...

    I know a guy who has a blue character and if you heal him in GZ you WILL go grey and get guard wacked. His character is bugged.
    He doesn't play anymore, but he used to do it just for laughs. I told him he should page on himself before someone paged on him, but either no one ever did (possible, few people realized what was happening) or the GMs just didn't understand what was happening (possible)

    as I said previously even if you are not in guard zone and tab out all it would take is the player to stand nex tto you... Spam WEAKEN and your character will automatically swing at him even if you are not in war mode... Test it out because thats how it works and if you were to hti that player you will go GRAY while he remains blue.

    Glad to see Misk reported this bug. Its only been going on for well over 10years and had literally hundreds of players complain about it. Glad to see our UO Team is handling this so efficiently. Johnny on the Spot guys !

    But we sure are loving those refinements.......:facepalm:

    What's also pretty funny, is that the Polymorph spell will make you appear to be grey, but you're actually not. Attack a polymorphed person who appears grey, and they can call the guards on you. Old trick that's been around for years.
