Bringing Players Back to Seige

Discussion in 'UO Siege Perilous' started by Tox The Murder, Jun 8, 2011.

  1. I got this idea from another thread of mine in the Uhall from a Seige Member.... [Tina Small :)]

    So are ppl up for it? Recruiting ppl from "other shards" and bringing them back to seige? [And how about other games too :)] Imagine if we could get this shard rolling again. :gee:

    Please post your comments and suggestions/ideas. :) Personal comments can be inboxed lol :p

    P.S. Mods i tried to stay in boundaries. :)

    Yes, I am all for it. But it is something that some of us have been trying to do for years with little or no success. What it really needs is someone who carries a bit of weight to make the appeals. This was demonstrated a few months back when Petra started an initiative which offered guest accommodation to anyone wanting to try the shard out. This was a great success and brought quite an influx of new folk. But when Mr Average of Siege tries anything, people generally tend to ignore it. This is partially our fault as Uhall threads promoting Siege frequently degenerate into mud-slinging matches between Siege/non-Siege players.

    I tried to get Cal to give the shard some publicity, but he insisted that they never favour one shard over another. I wanted to explain that it was one thing to favour, say, Altantic over Pacific or something, but in the case of Siege it was almost a different product line and it was in their interests to promote some diversity in the game and possibly appeal to a few people who want a classic shard. But he wouldn't listen.

    Hoffs has the gist of the environment in which Siege exists. It is what it is.

    I can tell you one thing...Siege players are still playing UO I see arounf 25 every day on Atl..and TNT is playing with alot on a free shard.

    I do think people would come back...most kept their accounts active in hopes siege comes back!
