    Pull your head from that dark smelly backside of yours and think about this...

    8/13/10 letter from a producer that apparently has no intention of doing anything to stop the blatant cheating.

    "Quickly: I spent a Sunday going through the 3rd party program detection report. I have identified more than a few accounts, and these will be handed off to CS to take action. The first step is a warning, the next I think we will have a little fun with.

    It’s important that we do not do “mass bannings” for offenders. One, it’s not just, and also it’s more fun to make a public display of cheaters … at times."

    See what happens when you don't enforce your own rules about cheating? 80% of the population finds it as the common starting point. I remember waaaay back when getting a 24hr ban for working spirit speak by putting a heavy object on a key overnight. Now its OK to run a speed enhancement and blip all over the screen attacking people, no warning or any type of action.
    I don't understand how a company (whoever the hell runs UO now) cant just put in a deadline to stop cheating. Apply a reprieve date, lets say two weeks from whatever date they announce, anything can be ran for those two weeks. Anything that the player chooses to run after that date is on his own.

    After even the mention of the producers note on uoherald.com a guild mate that has played for 12 years legit said that if that is true, that nothing will be done, he might as well just deactivate his accounts and quit. You (the dev/producers team) are taking away any light that was even there in this tunnel.

    In closing, pull your heads out from that dark smelly place on your backside.

    Sooo you want to get a warning before you get caught cheating? You want a chance to hide your offense before they look at you? They aren't going to do mass banning, so why should you worry? You'll get a warning, a temporary ban, or some creative punishment for breaking the terms you agreed to abide by at first. That's when you should stop if you're still cheating. That's your deadline, that's your warning.

    I think it's you and the like who needs to pull your heads out from that dark smelly place on your backside.

    There was a glimmer of hope (been in the works for how many years now?) that was shattered when this was posted by this producer/dev person.
    If nothing truely will be done about the cheating im thinking about hanging up my sword as well.

    The least EA/Mythic/whoever runs UO could do is say, " any type of program that will run on your computer, that will enhance your game-play....regardless of how it effects others is LEGAL. Enjoy your new found speed! "

    That way I can get back on a level playing field of those that think they are 'good' because of their crutch.


    Sooo you want to get a warning before you get caught cheating? You want a chance to hide your offense before they look at you? They aren't going to do mass banning, so why should you worry? Get a warning or a temporary ban at first then you should stop. That's your deadline, that's yout warning.

    Negative. If they were to put in the ban-forever for cheating patch at server up today/tonight. I would be 100% ok with that. I'll still be here (assuming I never work spirit speak again!)

    You JUST said you wanted a deadline, a warning beforehand. But suddenly if they applied a mass banning tonight without warning you're ok with it?

    Another thread on this?

    It's way beyond ridiculous the amount of threads that pop up on Stratics about this subject.

    90% of these threads need to be forwarded to Spiels & Rants.

    This subject has been debated,talked about, argued about for months and months now here at stratics yet still we have new threads popping up on the subject almost daily because certain people can't voice their opinions in existing threads and let them lie.

    Ridiculous! Give it a rest!:popcorn:

    Was attempting to appease the masses.
    Otherwise there would be people coming on here and posting/crying that they had no idea because they;
    were out of town
    death in the family
    someone is sick
    pet died
    car broke down
    dog ate the e-mail
    house burned down
    yada
    yada
    yada

    *side note*
    I missed registration for my EMT-B state certification because I was in FL for a week and a half, so I have to re-schedule for two weeks later
    *end side note*

    Your logic is irrefutable.

    Would you be OK tomorrow if they implemented some type of instant banning publish?

    1. You have no idea what Cal and Mythic have planned. Don't second guess them
    2. Attacking people with rude and insulting comments NEVER generates a helpful response in the individuals you are complaining to.
    3. It will, however, get a response from people who's role it is to maintain the rules of this board.
