    You guys on this forum have somthing to whine about! cant you just enjoy the game for what it is?

    i will start from what i roughtly remember as being complaints.

    AOS - as general :p

    in no particular order...

    4/6
    1sec bandie
    60dam AI's
    90 Dam Criticals
    Evasion
    Wrestle Parry Mages
    Chiv mage 4/6
    Necro mage Poisonstrike speed
    Dismout - Insta Remoount
    Mages in General...
    Dexers in General
    Tamers..
    greater Dragons


    these must be a meet 10% of the whines i have read over here in the 6 or so years ive played ultima WHY do we need to whine so much. now it is blatent to me that the 90 damage criticals eneded to be sorted that was jsut silly. but whilst one char is "Balanced" another comes slightly overpowered in most ppls eyes.

    i have also just returned to UO now after 1 1/2 yr away. asnd to me it seems realy balanced. even with the tamers. there not big issue once u learn who the owner is.

    But i come on here and all i see is WHINE!!!!!!!!! its no wonder that the designers are giving up with this game. they get no praise. IN MY OPINION! if you are not willing yo adapt your template to win or survive then do not moan when u die.

    all said befor i get the "bet ur a tamer" or "bet ur an archer"

    i am a Fencing Archer - which i have played for 4 years with medi or with chiv depending on the suit im using. the one template that stood the test of time over all nerfs related to dexers. dont get me wrong its attrocious in 1v1. but field fighting wins all

    i am also a Scribe pure mage
    a necro mage
    a parry mage
    a nox mag
    and a tank mage.

    i love mages. but i cant play them however i do not complain everyday on forums about it...

    oh i forgot the point of that Complain... Stop complaining about the game and just play it!¬!!!
     
  3. Yeah, I don't get the AOS complaints. UO was always item based, AOS just vastly increased your options.

    Course, you have to realize...the people happily playing are..well...playing. Not posting here.

    the most successful idea (besides the creation of UO) was Evocare's champ spawns.

    granted, it was initially frowned upon but you have to realize this was after trammel and he was trying to salvage things.

    his hard work has paid off: to this day it is the only reason anyone pvp's besides duels.

    i would not call him a genius but it was a very practical and effective idea.

    way better than the Trammelized nonsense that is coming out of the current Dev team.

    I think your time scale is a bit off there pal. ;) Trammel was about 5 YEARS prior to champ spawns.

    Practical - yes, it did help Fel some. Effective - no.
    Each shard has 2-4 guilds that "Own" the champ spawns, and each of those runs an average of 20-50 active members (ACTIVE, not total).
    So you're looking at maybe 2% of the player base visiting them with any regularity, and I wouldn't be surprised if fully 1/2 of the current player base has never Been to a champ spawn.


    As to it being an attempt to "Salvage things" the only thing being salvaged was a sliver of hope that Fel would survive, since Champs were introduced at a relative High Point in the game's population history.

    Think you need to double check your time scale before saying someone else is wrong about it. Trammel came about in 2000 with Renaissance, Champion spawns came about with Publish 16 which dropped in mid 2002, a difference of around 2 years, not counting the difference in the month each was released in. Not sure where your from, but around here 5 years is a hell of a lot longer time period than 2 years and hard to confuse the two with each other..

    it is simply because people are afraid to adapt and try new things, also item property's don't help either... if you don't have the best ,, or can't beat so and so , or have what so and so has or does, then yell nerf .

    Once upon a time these forums consisted of grown-up intelligent discussion, and obviously constructive criticism. However, it was by people who loved and cherised this game. It was almost a gathering place more then somewhere for people to whine and cry. Now its just a channel for people to talk about quitting like people care. :\
