    Hello guys,

    after I partecipated to the UO hall live chat, I wanted to share some of my thoughts and what would be nice to have on UO:

    1) Bounty system!! oh my! The Uo developers said no...just because it was cruel. As I said many times they removed it cuz chopping bodies was a bit too cruel for them. So I already suggested to do this:

    In all the banks the bankers can sell a deed that you can buy and by double clickin it and targetting the dead body of the murdered , it gets the name of the pker, then you return it to Britain bank felucca and you get the reward. Very simple and fast. No cruel actions.

    Bounty system back, funny for blues to chase one poor pker and trying to gank him . Funny for reds because they'll see how much the rage of innocent players make them worth. Also nobody would exploit the system to be honest. It's not anymore as before , now gold is useless almost and items are easy to obtain , uber suits same , thanks to imbuing.

    When you kill top 3 murderers you get the 50% of the bounty + piece of cloth with written " I have killed the Devilish.... " etc . And there is a timer of 5 days where you cannot have anymore rewards from the same pker

    A clean bounty system back. Funny for all. Let's Gank the reds ( I am one of them :D)

    2) Faction wars improvement. Players should be able to bet items and / or gold on a faction war. For example 10 SL bets 50 mils and a lavaliere that they can kill 20 COM in SL base, the Com guild bets 100 mils and 2 lietunenat sash that they can win the fight.

    You can set up a timer too and decide how many enemies should die to win the battle. When you win , in the chest inside the base ( SL in this case) you'll have the items there!

    A simple bet and gamble faction base fights. Very funny and very interesting.

    Another improvement is the capture the flag fights again with the possiblity to bet items and gold. Also in this case you can set a timer, one faction can defend a flag inside a city and the other factions need to pick it up. An important note: Stealthers will be automatically revealed within 30 tiles from the flag.

    Shorter faction stat loss , reduced to 10 minutes. This way on the less popoluated shards you don't have to wait for 20 minutes to get fights back.

    3) For the best pvpers and pvmers of the shards, for the oldest veteran players , the possibility to become counselours. Let's have EXPERIENCED uber players to help new players who wanna come to play in UO.

    An experienced player is also able to give free items ( from his personal items), and create suits for the new player, he's able to buy all the scrolls and teach the basics of pvp and pvm.

    Let's have this figure back, which was really nice back in the day, and really helpfull.

    Even if tons of years have passed, still Uo developers didn't get one thing:

    When you start Uo, you can't do anything, you die to a mongbat. It's such a wide game that you get lost and you get frustrated and quit after trying it.

    Back in the day when I started in 1997 I could page counselours and they were explaining me everything I should have done to pvp , which guild to join, everything, thanks to them I learnt pvp .

    Let's put this figure back. Happier new players mean tons of players more in UO and much more money for EA too.

    4) 13th year rewards. For the players who have payed monthly for 13 years ( !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!) an uo ( or more ) accounts....let's make this year PROPER rewards? shall we? I don't think it's possible to find in any other online game such an amazing type of customer. 13th year of love for UO....

    My suggestion for some rewards:

    - Glacial etheral daemon mount

    - vine cords sandals ( the only event item deleted)

    - GM looking robe , with jet black colour

    - a magic hat ( yes the one you wanted to make YEARS ago) that gives 100 bandies or 20 each pot or 20 each reagent , 12 hours cool down.

    I am happy that you gonna realise the expansion of the seas. I was the first one talking about it. As I was the first one talking about giving the event items to everybody , when it seemed that you wanted to delete them. It was my idea.

    I hope you'll watch as you often do my suggestion.

    One of your dearest players
