When is the Magincia event going to happen here, anyone know?
Never, would be good guess. Just like Dawns funeral. We didn't get that.
They are EM driven.
Like Symma said, probably won't happen. Mesanna tells tall tales when she says there are EMs on every shard.
There has to be.. It's like part of the story line on how New Magincia is starting.
Well at any rate the actual lottery for placing homes on New Magincia is delayed due to so many customers from Japan, atm, in a rl horrific situation.
But whenever it does go live in game, we will no doubt get the lottery to place homes there. But as for any special events earmarking this new series of events, we have no EM to give us any of those events. Heck they got 2 EMs on Chesapeake events happening ALL the time there, here NADA !
And because we here only have ONE downtown Britain, we also get gyped of things like Sherry the mouse or Dawn's funeral cuz some people forget Siege has only ONE Britain, and our Lord British's is also a FACTION COMPOUND so if sherry the mouse or the funeral of Dawn is in Lord British's castle...we can not ENTER it unless we are True Brit factioners. Sooooooooooooo meh !
Some shards have a mirrored duplication of Downtowns, in some place called Trammel, but we here on Siege, do NOT never have and never will but some folks that are in charge of the game, FORGET THAT ! lol
Anyhow we will get to place homes and have that lotto cuz that is in a publish but EVENTS that will go down related to this kickoff that EMs will be doing game wide on every shard but here, won't happen here at all.. cuz ya have to have an EM or 2 like every other shard has, to get those special customer, treatments !
We'll get the house plots, that doesn't require a EM. Just no event which are happening this weekend on most shards (lots of VirtueBane clones).
The housing plots are currently on Origin. So it won't hit others until they're finished, and they may wait a bit longer after that as well under the circumstances.
My apologies to our moderators HERE for my RANT over there.
But seriously, longwinded as I am and can be, some times I just gotta EXPLODE, and speak my mind or tell it like it is, or how it seems to ME anyhow, and I am seldom BRIEF esp if angry, and DO say something ! Course when I am SILENT chances are I am in even WORSE of an angry mood.
Sorry, I feel SIEGE IS GYPED, majorly mega gyped ! Go on Chessie for one day...you will see what I mean and cringe to see even more first hand, at how we really are..IGNORED as payin EA UO customer base, here on Siege !
*goes off to COOL DOWN*
Queen Zen, I don't know if this will be any consolation or just make you feel worse: About a week ago, I posted some information about the inconsistencies in the EM program, specifically for some of the Asian shards. As usual, no one but Kelmo bothered to respond. Even the person who instigated my post by asking for proof that those shards (i.e., Arirang, Balhae, and Formosa) were being ignored didn't bother to reply or react in any way. (Kelmo, bless his heart, pointed out that the Queen Dawn burial location on other shards is empty on Siege.)
A few days later, I was checking that thread after it had more or less died for activity and new posts and noticed that Mesanna was looking at it, along with several other people (maybe they're EMs??). I don't know if she actually got down to the posts Kelmo and I made or even looked at the screen shots I posted, but maybe if she did something will change for the better.
Siege is not quite alone in its EM situation. As far as I can tell, Arirang has never had an EM since the beginning of 2009. And Balhae and Formosa have had very spotty EM representation and seem to have last an EM almost a year ago. All three shards have ALWAYS been under Mesanna for the EM program that started in early 2009. Many people reply to my periodic posts about this issue by brushing off those three shards as Japanese shards. (I've posted about Clainin several times now.) They're not. Arirang and Balhae are Korean and Formosa is Chinese (Taiwanese). I think the IGMs from Japan have occasionally done stuff for those shards before this last EM program kicked off, but I think even then their presence was sporadic. Those three shards still have Clainin hanging out in the New Haven healer's shop. (Yes, I know Siege has no New Haven and have always wondered how his illness and later move to Trinsic were handled here.) They also don't have a burial location for Queen Dawn, and they DO have a Trammel facet so even that excuse that MIGHT apply to Siege is blown out of the water. Even Mugen, which also has the Siege ruleset, has a Queen Dawn burial location and Clainin appears to be long gone from New Haven. Maybe they have had those things happen there because they have a Trammel facet. Or maybe it's just because the Japanese IGMs are a bit more on the ball about these things....
Anyway, if you ever feel like arguing this issue again in UHall, you may want to mention these other shards as well. They are just as neglected as Siege, which in my mind makes the situation even worse. Four shards that Mesanna is directly responsible for don't have EMs to recognize player-run towns. Four shards that don't have EMs to attend/lead certain happy events like weddings. Four shards that don't have even occasional EM-run events to tie into the main story line so people feel a bit more connected to all the other players in UO.
Even if Mesanna can't find someone to be a regular EM, I think she should at least make an effort on these four shards to try to accommodate things like accepting and doing something with requests for player-run town recognition and other player-driven events like weddings. But then again, I guess not having an EM to recognize player-run towns saves Siege the arguments among the players about how only the oldest of the old player-run towns should actually be recognized. I think on some shards, those arguments have gotten pretty ugly.
My unorganized and verbose .02, for whatever their worth as a Siege newcomer.
Siege will preserver. We are the weed that will not go away. We are "that elephant in the room".
Siege is the best kept secret they do not want you to know about.
Aye I was not even aware that there WERE other shards as gyped as Siege.
I go on Chesapeake a lot, although far more HERE cuz I do not even fathom the skyrocketing prices of things at Luna anymore there at all. But at any rate I see first hand the extraordinary stuff other shards get and those of us without get diddly. Yet we all pay EA UO MYTHIC the same.
But...in a more humorous vein, I saw this news, about us all being able to get EMs pies on the Chesapeake forum as News, yesterday:
So all excited I log on my fisherman Stockbridge there on Chesapeake, to go fetch ME a pie too somewhere anywhere...and this is what happened :
The lady behind me is askin me why no pie for me...so I explained to her, I play siege Ricardo musta known cuz he ignored me and NO PIE FOR ME !
GO FIGURE ! lol I got ignored and gyped out of a pie [even over THERE !]
