    Ok rightnow on my server there's a new born tactics and spawn templates that's wildly spreading due to the bugged ps distribution bug as per DEVs and they said they are looking into fixing them.

    Anyways rightnow thru out the day we get trammies/pvp incapitated players going into multiple champ spawn in dungeons and wither the spawn to get to 3rd (where things get harder) and when raider comes they hide and stealth away and WAIT... so just for the hack of it I tried this to see if it really worked. I worked despise to 3rd and then took the teleporter to destard and again working the rikky up to 2nd and then I stealthed to the center of greater dragons and just sit there virtually afk. Called in my guildies to have them finish dsp... (I'm at DESTARD) and bam I got 2 scrolls and a pair of int boots... then I noticed destard was reverted by a candle so I quickly wither it back to 3rd and smokebombed and stealthed away back to the super dragons and guildies finished the rikky aftet 20minutes and another 2 scrolls and statue...

    Imo this is ********, not only I didn't touch anything from 3rd and up never seem the champ but also I was either in a completely different dungeon or at least 150 tiles away from the spawn I was able to rack in scrolls AND replicas for pratically doing nothing then afk.

    Is this really the way you devs wanted? You said you are going to fix this but its been months so when is the fix coming?

    Btw the new (and lame) spawn template that I was talking about has been used by a zerging guild on my shard (they have a lot of people but most can't pvp) its the necro ninja stealther just to quick withering spawn and smokebomb when they see real pvpers/raiders... please fix this thanks

    Wow...two spawns, two drops? I bow down to your amazingness :) I have done well over 80 champs and never even once gotten a replica drop yet. I will have to try your suggestion, without the tears of course since there is no crying in Fel.

    Yes I can sware it works. Its getting fixed soon tho. If fel pvp is so hard for you you should do it. You are not alone we got a lot of noobs just like you using a bug to their advantages as inferior players. Good luck on your carebear spawning. And welcome to fel.

    Oh come on now.. there's enough exploiting in fel to go around whether its a l33t (real) pvp template or a pvp-challenged pvm'r.

    If this is the case, then the frustration of people not gifted by the RNG gods is going to go through the roof! I am in that pool.. 100 spawns and counting and ZIPPO for drops!

    Sounds like it's working fine to me. :)

    Why should it be set up so someone who spends time progressing the spawn to tier 3 (only to get raided and chased off from the spawn they initiated) receives nothing. Bringing the spawn to the 3rd tier is essentially doing 1/2 the work and they should be equally entitled to any rewards the Champion may drop.

    And if I read FoF correctly today this is exactly how it's intended to work. Someone correct me if I'm wrong...

    hard work. took me 7 minutes on a necro to advance 3 candle pop dsp to lv3 and about 10 for rikky. and no its not how its supposed to work. you shouldnt be able to receive scrolls and replicas from another dungeon the patch stated you must be in that area. also replica can drop into a ghost's backpack making it impossible to steal/loot is also not working as intended and will be fixed soon also.

    My Understanding that this is not a bug, it is intended to lure more blues to Fel, TO MAKE REDS HAPPY. IT WORKED. Now that the blues out smarted the REDS, the REDS are not happy. Go Figure!

    Madrid you are absolutly correct, For many years us "Trammy guilds" have got raided on the end of 3rd level 4th level, and the Reds sat back and laughed at us. Now it is our turn it sit back and laugh.

    I'm all for it and loving it. And truth be told it is more fair and balanced now than it was before. :D

    What's really funny is when it becomes a waiting game and the REDS wait and wait hoping those who have worked the spawn will just 'leave' the server permanently.

    I've collected many a powerscroll and relic while sitting hidden under a tree waiting for others to finish the job I started. And rightfully so because I was the one who did the majority of the work and have the drive and desire to initiate the champ spawn.

    Personally I don't think anyone should get rights except the one who actually Challenged the Champion and all those players the challenger wishes to include in his guild/party. Everyone else should go challenge their own champion somewhere else if they want scrolls/relics and not be allowed to intrude in on someone else. Very much similiar how Peerless are set up...

    Now what we have is people crying because their unable 100% greif players 'trammelites' who just want a chance at a scroll or relic. This has been long overdue...

    It's still not completely fair and balanced but it's way better than it was before when it was completely one sided with people healing the champion to full health and getting all the scrolls/relics/decos etc.

    Cheers!:D

    This system totally kicks ass :). Raiders outnumbered me 5 to 1 - I hid at Despise until the champ died and I was rewarded with 120 Magic Resist scroll ^^

    It's not entirely true.
    When they fix the bug were you can get PS/Replica from anywhere within the subserver. It will also encourage raids to put at least a detect/tracker in group. If they made it fair and fix the range assuming they made it work the same way as protecting SoT scroll range which is 90-tile radius, it would be troublesome but not entirely impossible to catch.

    Also rightnow the bug that prevents replica dropping to your corpse will be fixed so replica and PS will all go into your corpse thus encouraging last minute raid when champ is completely redlined. You will all most likely get wiped and champ will drop in a few seconds later and we will be collecting replicas and PS directly from your corpse.

    It's funny when trammies say they "outsmart" when I am the evil red that's doing the explination of how to bug is done.

    According to the DEV when you run too far away from the alter you might get the message similarly to when the protector was too far to receive a scroll. Which is a rightful bug fix/exploit removal. As the dev stated the hit the spawn and run to the other side the the world shouldnt work but rightnow you can be 20000 tiles away in same server and it would work. Nice fix, looking forward for it.

    To the raiders outthere, when patch comes in make sure you raid when the champ is redlined, this way you can out-smart those self-claimed smart trammies using a bug to gain rewards they shouldnt be collecting.

    What is your beef here, You reds wanna do champs then do them ,but from what I see u can't do them .....all u want is to be a controller of ppl.....just like gangs do. Everytime Trammies find a way to help themselves in Fel you Reds all start crying UNFAIR. Reds are Turf controllers and as far as I am concerned this has been great for Trammies and hope it stays . I remember when Spellweaving first came about and we Trammies figured it out that if we had 4-5 spellweavers we could kill a red with WOD, but that didn't last long becuz the Reds all started crying UNFAIR.. It will always be UNFAIR to the REDS if Trammies can get the upper hand.....makes me wonder, are they all cry babies IRL???? Also Reds want pvp, that doesn't exsist...cuz the Reds come full force killing pvm ppl instead.....ppl who either don't know how to pvp or rather not......Reds are no more then Bullys of UO. And you should talk about bugs, reds use Ghost cams to find us and kill us.......Now thats something to complain about....When they actually fix ghost cams then fine fix this so called bug we are using......Till then LEAVE IT ALONE and play the game

    lol good one at least my ball dont revolved around easymode and carebear settings and some ingame bug in order to earn rewards designed for pvp.

    you babies can keep thinking the bug will last forever until pub58 hit and you are getting raided at end of champ.then you can take ur little pink balls back to tram.

    you guys are the one cried about risk vs reward...... best advise i can tell you is learn to pvp and stay away from carebear easy mode... or you will always be "controlled"

    1) I agree with WarUltima... the current System is bugged & broken... and PARTIALLY..doing multiple spawns & simply stealthing out but staying on the server is LAME and NOT what the devs intended...

    2) FEL is meant to have risk.. the way this currently functions is near ZERO risk (if your intelligent... smokebombs are hard to beat & tracking don't cut it)

    Notice the Devs Agree w/ Me on this point....bc they will fix it.

    FEB 13th 2009 FoF


    For those of you who missed it.... the part in RED implies that the system isn't currently functioning like this. Meaning working multiple champs up stacks your odds cumulatively & you only have to stay on the server to reap the reward...

    PS... WarUltima... how could you possibly be surprised "They" are using this tactic??? I mean FINALLY all those stealthers have a purpose !! :lick:

    WarUltima, I bet u use Ghost cam and think thats ok.........Almost every red I know uses some kind of script.........and I bet your no different. I don't know why you keep complaining about these things.....The Dev team is trying to make it enticing for Trammies to go to Fel, which in turn gives you someone to 1v1 with......but thats not good enough......Keep it up and soon all that will be in Fel are Reds......If you don't like the way things are go make your own server just for Reds that wanna do nothing but PVP.............AND STOP COMPLAINING OVER EVERY LITTLE THING IN GAME.....I have been playing this game for almost 9 yrs and u can see how many posts I have made.....compared to how many you have made, and I am willing to bet most of your posts are complaints about how this game benefits Trammies and is UNFAIR to Reds.......blah blah blah.........just sit back, let the Devs do their job and instead of complaining, find out ways to beat us Trammies...use your brains.........Enjoy UO ...UO is kinda like survivor, out wit, out play, out last after all its just a GAME :grouphug:

    Please do not insult me and accuse me of using something that you seem to have better knowledge than I do. I will be forced to report you for false accusation. As you read the FoF DEV said the system isnt currently working as intended. And for all these year (and I bet I played UO longer than your mesely 9 years, since this seems to be your way of calculating credibility) I know how the system works and I am usually updated for everything the DEV might throw in this game. You know the 5000 tile away to receive a replica/ps or replica is dropping to a ghost making impossible to lose is rigged. YOU are abusing this stated BUGGED system. In a way YOU are the ones hacking here not me. I go thru intended designed AS STATED BY DEV.

    Please if you think FEL and PvP and the INTENDED (again stated by DEV) system is too harsh for you to handle simply quit. I am on a forum for the sake of discussion and trying to help the DEV to eliminate bugs/exploits (e.g the bugs you "legit" trammies are currently "exploiting" with). You dont have to argue with me since DEVs have comfirmed that currently the system is NOT working as intended. I provided the detail of the obvious flaws of the current "bugged" system (again I didnt say it... a Ultima Online Dev. Representive stated so) in assistant to help the devs to "fix" the system.

    I cant believe that you as a claimed 9-yr pre-tram player cant understand how the system isnt working as intended. The current system might make sense to you if it's happening on tram, but as a 10yr vet, I KNOW it wasnt designed to work like that on FEL. Especially like you guys said, it's made to "entice" trammies to fel to PvP, not "entice" trammies to "instantly" hit and smoke bomb and hide and go "Hide" and "AFK" and collect rewards. The crap you guys are doing is exactly like UNATTENDED SCRIPTING...... which kinda explained why you seem to know more about hacking/scripting/cheating than I do.

    Again please do not accuse me of something I dont do. I kill trammies yes but I dont script. Please dont blame felucians for killing you simply for your lack of ability to defend yourself in FEL.

    Again thanks for DEVs to realize the problems and working on fixes for them. :bowdown:

    I don't give rats ass if someone works spawn to lvl 3 and gets a scroll.

    What I do care is these stealthmage bots wandering around... Immediately the spawn is active, couple of bots activate stealthing around and throwing few EV:s now and then when noones on the same screen and stealthing around again.

    Prolly pretty profitable script once again.

    I say they carebear because they evidently are AGAINST anything that present risks or challenges and are resorting to using an ingame bug to gain advantages to gather rewards that werent designed to go to them. (A dev stated it I didnt just make it up).

    Now I can change my phase to call them bounch of bug-abusing, anti-pvp, anti-risk exploiters as they are in fact using the bug to their advantage and they all admit that they did so.

    I dont hack/script nor do they have evidence of me scripting, that's false accusation.

    Calling them carebear is like saying "YOU SUX"
    Falsely accusing someone for bannable actions is like using the "R word after killing someone in game or refering someone to the N word" either way it's an automatic ban. And I didnt start discussion on hacking/cheating program (you are not supposed to on the forum if you dont already know) the trammies did, all started from a false accusation. If they dont stop anyone can report them for openly discussing/falsely accusing stuff like that.

    You do so, I'm pretty sure they won't go reporting to mods like little kiddo telling mama how big brother said a bad word.

    Bu freaking huu... So what? You can't argue with him yourself, you have to call big brother to help cause someone made a false accusation?

    When someone trashes you, a) You just ingore it b) You make him bite the dirt C) You trash back. That's the felucca style, not reporting to GM that someone trashed you.

    And your calling ppl carebears.

    For you bug users living in denial...

    Quote from EAMythicRegine

    "So as of 58, only people who damage the champ (and their protector) should get Powerscrolls as was the case before 57. And this is also why the points will be wiped at the end of each spawn."

    Truth > Thousand drops of tears.
    No more crying ^^.

    Thanks for showing us what your post is really about. Basically your upset that everyone does not want to play your way so you want the rules changed.

    I think Regine's thread answers the question asked in this thread, it's therefore no longer required.
