    Congrats on being the only shard that cares about a stupid mini-game that ruined yet another of the original dungeons.

    Which is a noteworthy accomplishment in player interaction and teamwork, considering that it would have been very easy to have gotten nowhere on account of the non-consensual pvp which exists all over Siege.

    If the dungeon was indeed "ruined," one could offer the argument that it happened when champ spawns were introduced, as the "original" dungeons were in fact... in Felucca... which in further discussion could amount to another argument that the release of Trammel in fact "ruined" the "original" risk vs. reward dungeon experience.

    Kudos Siege.

    We need a dislike button for the unwanted negativity and bad vibes that seep through one's pores.

    Great Job to those who contributed in the Void Pool and made this happen!

    ** In recognition of Siege as the single shard able to break the All Shards Void Pool Record, I hope you Mods won't cite me here for double posting. The below is from our Stratics/Siege forum thread.**

    On or about October 20th in 2012, the Japanese Shard Hokuto set the All Shards Record for Void Pool waves completed at 204, breaking the then current Siege Record.


    Two days later, this post appeared:
    Over the next 21 months members of the White Council Alliance (which includes members from several different Alliance Guilds) attempted to surpass the Hokuto record, with our final and All Shards Record setting day coming this past July 20th, 2014.

    Not only did we set the bar very high on that day, we accomplished the feat with only 28 members. Of course it's fair to say that most of the 28 had been along on prior attempts.... We were all quite dedicated, to say the least... :cool:

    In fact, we had failed on our last attempt - a month or two before this one - but in doing so we recognized the final modifications needed to complete our overall strategies and tactics.

    If you spoke to any of the 28 members that were there, to a man/woman they would tell you that it could not have happened without the time tested leadership of Hoffs, Leader of GIL.

    This is not necessarily meant to be taken as an endorsement of GIL (although I suppose I'd be remiss if missed the obvious opportunity here), but rather an endorsement of what a dedicated team of fun loving, challenge seeking people can do together on a weekend...

    ;)

    Here's an image of the Void Pool Record site on Siege that includes UOCartographer for reference.......

    I'm still pissed about Despise. It was the best place in the game for anyone who wanted to train a character without just scripting and/or beating a golem, and they plowed it under for some dog-stupid minigame.

    If they reverted Despise and put the artifacts in Doom or something the game would be way better off.

    What did we win?

    Well, we won the right to say that we took on a great challenge together as a group of people who enjoy both UO and each others company - and, in spite of the odds, we reached our goal and set the All Shards Record. And we had a great deal of fun doing it! :)

    If you think it was no big deal, then you and whoever you can round up should try it for yourselves and let us all know how it went... :cool:

    Congrats! If another shard breaks it, do they move the banner or place a new one on the new shard?

    If I remember correctly, Hokuto had the banner before this - so yes - it is moved sometime after a new record is set.
