    The shards dead. Our pvpers are on Atlantic because we cannot get a fight. People log in, see no one on and log off.

    Please open up xfers to Siege? There are tons of players who'd love to experience PvP on all facets (malas, tokuno, etc.)


    Sieges biggest problem is the people who are left playing don't want to PvP... they want to stealth around and sit in their houses all day.

    This is not fun. This is not a fun game.


    Please allow people to xfer a completed character over to Siege. Maybe make it no bank box so we don't have the duping issues that have plagued the system in the past.

    Thank you!

    ~A 13 year UO player who's now bored with no one to fight.

    Oh and let me warn you that there will be a few Siegers that come here trying to derail this.

    There is currently a thread on the siege forums with over 200 replies because these people want you to address a laundry list of concerns.

    All I'm asking for is something simple, quick and easy to address an issue all on Siege agreed was an issue. Population.

    Please help.

    It's a horrible idea. What they should do is nuke SP and replace it with a classic shard, and obviously with no character transfers.

    We'd all like that. Personally, I'd love a classic shard... but it's not going to happen.

    Too bad it's not practical. This idea, however is.


    The Devs don't even have the resources to properly tweak siege to be in line with the new stuff they add in. Unless the fix is quick, simple and super easy... it's just not going to happen.

    Sorry.

    ABSOLUTEL NOT! No character transfers to Siege.

    Draxous you do not speak for our shard. You certainly are not the voice of Siege seeing as you play ATLANTIC. Get lost. :fake:

    Well apparently the devs have at least been considering the idea of a classic shard, so it might not be as impractical as you think it is...

    Am I speaking for the shard?

    I'm speaking for myself and the many who agree with me. Along with the oodles of players on production shards who would love to play on Siege, but don't have characters.

    Why don't you present the Devs with your laundry list of crap they need to change (that you don't have the shards support for.)

    Let's see if they'll spend the years coding your BS or the moments it would take to open up xfers.

    hmmm.

    They've been considering nuking siege and replacing it with a classic shard?

    Really? Come on man...


    On a side note: if they do open a classic shard - you'll see me there.

    Spam up your own thread... Be condescending to anyone who doesn't agree with you. Yep, that should get you what you want. People like you have done their part over the years to kill our shard... You're no different.

    Siege is dead. Thanks for your contribution to that!

    You know... Sometimes there is just not enough coffee. I do know that I do not have to argue against this ridiculous idea. It will fall flat on it's own. *shakes head*

    No.

    I'd be open to the naked char transfer idea IF I had some confidence that the dupes which plague other shards were impossible. Unfortunately, I have no such confidence, and I'm afraid char transfers will destroy the siege economy.

    I thought I'd mention EA/Mythic will make money off these transfers?

    No other idea will do that.

    Please don't let the people who will be asking you to do things like remove some of the fun things about factions (like kat) distract you.

    We'd like more people to play with on Siege. It truly is an awesome shard and I believe a lot of the UO playerbase will enjoy playing there (even if part time.) It's a truly unique UO experience a lot of people are missing out on.

    Right now there simply isn't enough people playing anymore to get decent PvP. For PKs to hunt farming stuff. For RPers to build a community. Players after spending years working on their characters and accounts on another shard do not want to start all over again and they shouldn't have to just to enjoy something so great.

    Again, this is a really easy fix and it would do a lot to help us on Siege enjoy playing there more.

    Thanks!

    Got a better idea Kelmo?

    You tear down and build nothing.
