    Devs,

    Please leave the ToTs on for Siege Perilous. We do not have item insurance and need them left on so that new players and the not-so-adept at PvP can have access to some decent items without having to be in factions. The divide between factioners and non-factioners is too big without this!

    At least 3 out of every 4 Siegers want this!!!!!

    And if possible, we would also like for you to give us a way to hunt for cursed artifacts as well. (we prefer one to drop on each corpse of a boss that we kill in the doom gauntlet. Non-cursed artifact drops need not change.)

    PLEASE leave ToTs on!

    Thank you

    Draxous

    Also, the shard would prefer it if the ToTs could drop on the corpses of the monsters rather than in the backpack. It was agreed upon that this would be the best way to police any exploiting of the backpack drop system.

    We understand that your time available may not allow for the coding for this and request at the very least... that the ToTs just be left on.

    Thank you!

    I for one do not want them left on Siege. And if you are the self elected spokesman for Siege at least be truthful about your numbers or you lose credibility. The poll that you posted on the Siege boards shows that 39 out of 55 want them left on and 16 do not. That is less than the 3 out of 4 Siegers you claim want this.

    There were multiple players who do not even play Siege OR even UO for that matter (such as this Chardonnay guy above me) who's votes do not count and are removed from consideration.

    The final tallies has 75% (actually 76%) of the shard wanting this.

    I'm sorry you wound up being in the minority. The truth is the truth.

    Siege wants this.

    Thank you!

    You do not play SP or even UO for that matter by your own very recent and very open omissions. Lying here won't help you. I am a paying customer and any paying customer has a say in matters that you (who's not a customer) do not.

    Thank you for your efforts at trolling.

    Have a nice day. :thumbsup:


    PS. It was cute how you tried to vote in the poll twice under 2 seperate stratics accounts. Thanks for making this easy!

    Draxous,

    While I appreciate your efforts to try and get Siege something, the truth is, the Devs don't seem to care. *pokes DEVS with stick* We've asked for many things in the past year after taking polls and getting a consensus amongst the shard only to be ignored. Many of these things would have helped to fix the issues we have on Siege that are present due to "unintended consequences" of various updates and additions to the game.

    We don't even have an EM.

    Maybe they will perk up and prove someone wrong, but I doubt it. Most of the Siege community has lost faith in the support of the DEVs.

    You guys hoping for a classic shard, good luck. . .because this is what you have to look forward too.

    And Chardonnay, please go back under your rock, it's where you belong.

    So are thousands and thousands of players who do not play Siege... and just like them, your vote does not count. Sorry Chard. Sucks, I know... oh well.

    If you played Siege, then I would have considered your one vote (not both) valid. Even so, it wouldn't change a thing and 3 out of 4 Siegers would still want this. Since by your own admission, you do not play UO... (and hence don't play Siege) your vote does not count.

    Sorry, but that's the way the cookie crumbles.

    Have a nice day. :D

    Maybe this disagreement should be taken someplace other than the boards.

    I am not sure if the OP is correct or not, I suspect that not everyone that plays SP voted. But this probably isn't the place for your disagreement, is it?

    Well i'm quite sure that not everyone who plays SP voted, because not everyone who plays reads the boards. I can tell you some of the most active players on the shard frequent the SP board.

    I agree it's not the place for this argument.

    Which was a TOTAL of 55 votes on that poll...

    Truth. I conducted a poll on UOLedger and out of the 215 people who participated (thus far), only 39 people voted no for the launch of a classic/T2A server. That's roughly 82% of the people polled who either want or wouldn't mind a classic server, yet it's not been implemented.

    Of course there are the difficulties in combining the old/classic features with all of the modern UO changes, patching, etc., but for a multi-billion dollar company like EA I'm sure it is a possibility.

    The bottom line is that the developers will do what they want to do. The paying subscribers can offer as much input as they want, but considering years ago somebody repeatedly submitted an item duplication method to the bugs team that went ignored says something. The dupe was ultimately posted in public by the submitter out of outrage that the EA team had ignored his inquiries. Needless to say that once it went public the bug was fixed in no time.

    We can only dream.

    Lol, I love how you think just because you're on Siege, you deserve or feel more entitled to longer ToT's.
    That's not how it works, sir.

    We do not have item insurance on Siege (nor do we want it) and therefore the game mechanics and the way loot is earned, distributed and retained is different. We do not obtain a handful of these items, insure them and then use them forever. Imagine if replica's were an event that lasted only a few weeks? The masses would cry and moan because as soon as the stock piles wore thin... no one could enjoy those items any longer.

    A shard with special rules deserves special considerations.

    Thanks.

    You chose to play there. If you don't like the mechanics, don't play there. Enough said.
    You keep bring up numbers and guess what? I'm sure if you asked every shard, 75% of people would want ToT to stay. Who wouldn't want to take advantage of an easy way to get tomarties?
    Hellllloooo?
    You don't get special privileges. You just don't. And you're nutters if you expected differently.

    I'm pretty sure there wasn't a single fact in anything you said, just your angry opinions.


    This is for the betterment of Siege and something that a clear majority of the population wants.

    You're hurt feelings over this are noted though.

    Thanks and have a nice day. :D

    I agree make it a event and nothing more, not too mention 24/7 ToT's would just be one step closer to a prodo shard...

    Angry opinions?
    I have never voiced any angry opinions about Seige. I think it's great players have the option of playing on this Shard and I've considered playing myself. How is this an angry decision? I'm just stating you're crazy if you think you get special privileges for playing on a particular shard that runs with different mechanics than others. It doesn't mean you get longer event times. It doesn't mean you get better drops.
    How in the world do you think your shard is so much better than others that you get off DEMANDING the Devs to extend your dates for the ToT? Seige isn't BETTER, nor would it be if you lengthened ToT, and I'm pretty sure those who aren't crazed over arties and gold would agree that ToT has run it's course. It's a dead horse that continues to get beat, over and over and over again.

    Nice try skewing things.

    I'm sure in your world, demands usually start off with a please and end with a question mark.

    In my world, those are called requests.

    Okay, I'm not going to lie and say I read every reply here in full.. But, the Treasures of Tokuno program is ending and that's all we know thus far. Siege Perilous is meant to be a more advanced server for experienced players, so implementing something like ToT on Siege Perilous long-term while disabling it on the other production servers is really pointless. It just downright violates what Siege Perilous is all about-- having to strive to succeed and not just kill creatures for rares and high-end items.

    Even though I don't play Siege, I feel I still have a good enough reason to vote "no" when it comes to keeping the ToT active long-term on the shard. Like I said, it just would go against what Siege was originally intended for.
