Sounds good count me in!
Good luck with it
No point having a pvp event unless its a team one, dueling is pointless. Anyway I doubt anyone would fight us.
You would have to restrict templates if you did that, disallowing tamers, fields and probably wither otherwise it will be chokepointed and nobody will claim each others castle.
You cannot enter a house if your flagged. This will not work. I did an event with about 30 people involving capture the flag from 2 houses. The event turned into a slaughter basically with me and Eraser teaming up and "culling" (syncing) the cattle (me and my bro didnt have 2 comps then). It was fun, however cannot be repeated due to the house hiding patch. However you won't get a large turn out, as it'll be SSO slaughtering the shard like lambs with their great teamwork. A "seige" idea is really like taking a faction base - we can do it now. Minax often "seige" their house or minax base however the battles lasts a few minutes when SSO turn up. It won't work due to the lack of skill/coordination by other groups.
Trammies etc like to PvP however once they realise they have no chance in winning nor getting a kill they give up, and often cry "hacks etc". This is the problem, and as a result you will have a poor turn out because people don't want to be 30 seconds of entertainment for SSO. If they continued to give it ago they would eventually improve.
Also trammies should never run PvP events, they have 0 clue. This is evident in the above post. I think its sad that an "incentive" needs to be made in order for guilds to come out. However PvP has picked up recently so thankyou to the less cowardly members of KHK and AUPK who have finally quit factions and fought.
PS i think you should all allie again. We can have some events with SSO setting up harrowers when the new patch comes out. We know no one else would dare place one. We welcome AUPK to recruit the entire shard and bring them. It would be very fun to see 20+people taking on 8 SSO.
Well, I don't think your going to get an event to happen unless there big rewards. People just don't want to fight us, you saw how we spawned a harrower and they would rather fight each other than attack us.
Trash talk is not the reason people arn't in fel. If we "trashed talked" and were terrible at pvp, then I bet every man and his dog would be in fel killing us over and over getting "revenge". The issue is trams don't like death, hence they bash mindless simple AI for hours.
Trash talk shouldn't offend anyone if it doesn't have any real meaning or actual truth to it. For example calling someone "fat" shouldn't be offensive, if you arn't "fat". Its meaningless and holds no truth. My comments are different, I know many real things and simply state those. Its not my fault that these simpletons take offense to their own life.
Secondly its the internet, if you cannot handle "newb", "fat", "tradei" etc then walk the **** outside. Net slander DOESNT MEAN ANYTHING. Call me what you want in game i'm simply talk back with facts or laugh.
The problem with this shard is 90% of the people are here from companionship, something they lack IRL. SSO is here entirely for PvP, I don't play online games for friends/gfs I do that IRL. Look at certain guilds here with websites etc. Its an internet dating/spouse meeting point. These people prefer to chat up the fat housey "x" instead of testing their abilities against people around Australia/the world. I won't get into the social issues that have occured in Oceania as this post will be banned. However check out Stumpy's (the moderator here) goodbye post. It will show you that I was never lieing when I "trash talk".
Of course all SSO will join in. However I suggest you keep your gold etc. Don't waste it on some "duels" and or a group fight. You could use that money to buy some armours and recruit the rejects of oceania. Teach them to play a point and click dexer (yes a monkey can learn this) and try fel champ spawns. I suggest recruiting 10 + trammies including dismounters and mounted archers. You will be able to kill some of us with these lame, skill less tactics. The new patch should encourage this.
Spawning a harrower or champs and leaving them up is a much cheaper and better way to draw PvP. No player made events are better than figthing over something such as a harrower. However lately we see a rare attendence, lol. I expect the new patch to do wonders for fel. I imagine AUPK will do some more mass recruiting so they can hold their spawns and get some arties/ps (unless of course they resort back to old tactics: 3am saturday night spawning).
Free shards have the best events ever (shame im banned), which are made by the gms. 120 person Capture the Flag is the most fun you will ever have on UO. Its amazing how uncreative are Devs are considering people who work for FREE can produce self running events via some nice programming.
