    Since the upcoming factions changes may have the potential to disrupt the balance of PvP on Siege, would it be possible to get a Siege Test Shard for this publish? It would make things much easier for us to test and report potential problems and give positive feedback as well. :thumbsup:

    Also... I posted a faction problem a while back that is speciffic to Siege. This problem involves opposing faction players joining an enemyf action, redlining themselves, running up to a member of the same faction [usually a dexxer] and attacking, which resulted in the non-agressor losing faction kill points. These players continue this until high ranking players have zero faction points.

    Draconi responded saying this was poor game design and that he had Mesana on it for Publish 56. Is there any word on whether that will be resolved for test and/or the publish? If the proposed additions are emplemented on Siege, this would definitely need to be fixed first.

    These faction changes will just 'make the rich richer and the poor poorer'

    This would be a good idea. I would definetly like to see this tested to the max.

    Also, faction ranks need to be looked at if this does go live. My rank has been at 6 since the day I joined factions, it never goes up or down.

    A list of all of the differences between Siege factions and other shards faction systems might be in order. There are some unique things in place on Siege, I believe.

    Non-Faction players should be interested in testing these changes as well since the proposed changes may well give them the short end of the stick. I guess we'll soon find out, but its a possibility.

    I've passed the request along. I don't know if it's something that we can do this time around, but I can certainly ask!

    Please remember that Jeremy is the messenger, not a dev. Let's not ebolt the messenger, shall we??

    Aeowyn, if Spree did lose his mind and put us in factions, I would hope it's in the same faction as you so I don't find a herd of enemy creatures at my doorstep!!
     
  18. What is the messenger's job?

    It seems simple enough. Take our feedback and provide it to the developers and take issues requiring feedback from the developers to us.

    Right?

    So, why did we find out about ROT changes at a point where it was too late to modify them for Publish 55 even though they were clearly borked (Jeremy has admitted as much).

    Why are we finding out about faction changes at a time when it is too late to get a Siege test shard to try them out?

    Those seem like messenger issues to me.

    The messenger is fine. Focus on the devs.
     
  20. I can't focus on the devs Kelmo. If you have a way to provide communication to and from the Dev's that doesn't go through Jeremy, then I can.

    But, as things are, it is the messengers job to facilitate communication on these issues.

    If you think communication is good enough, you are welcome to ignore me.

    I believe it could be much better.

    I believe that with better communication we could offer feedback that prevents mistakes and wastes developer time.

    I want UO to be a better game. I am willing to help.

    I don't feel like I can even though at times I try really, really hard.
