    I think UOD went SL to hold BoA and Sycks hands.. Like everyone else on the shard. Not that Boa or Syck needs it... UOD sure as hell does.

    Got to love a large guild that jumps in with a winner. Zerg for the win.

    I'm around, but factions isn't that fun when I can't "catch" half the opposition...

    Those that need an edge just look worse off when they die..

    and yeah SL is fast but theyre not the only ones to fight, id really like to see BC active in minax, you guys and ego would probably become the strongest faction

    Ego alone makes Minax the strongest faction...

    lol, no im joking, we have 3 active people.

    And yeah I saw those OWN guys go to SL. What a bunch of scabs. It's beyond pathetic how all these little guilds are hiding behind the bigger ones. Yay for no balance system.

    For now yes UOD is going SL, However I can assure you that most of the SL faction guilds are not real optomistic about are presence.

    To be honest we dont realy care what anybody thinks anyhow.

    Well I understand stat completely. No body in any faction would be happy about you punching bags being in the same faction..... No offense or anything...

    BC's faction guild has given us some fun fights but you guys don't seem to group anymore.

    E-go has given us good fights too.

    SL seems to be on a lot to fight, though they zerg alot.

    TB would be more fun if they ever did anything besides hang out in a castle behind greater drags, but they fight sometimes.

    If any new guilds go factions I'd definately like to see them go Minax so we could have some epic 4 way battles in a city.

    Eh, that's when we're guarding. We faction, we don't use factions for glorified Yew-style PvP with a twist (stat). It's ALL about the sigs.

    Understandable, especially with all of the incentives that are in place for owning towns.

    Why? There still isn't any point to holding towns. It's like doing a spawn and not getting scrolls.

    What EA should have done, and unfortunately they aren't smart enough to think of this, is force faction players to control ALL towns in order to use those shiney new items. This would make sigil fighting actually mean something. I got my gear, why should I care about sigils?

    I agree, its more fun to fight people that aren't speedhacking. It is still possible to win. Ask Bo Hunter and his archer brigade.

    There are only three faction guilds where the majority of people use the speedhack. Two are completely obvious so I don't need to get a warning from Mystra for saying it.

    The third happens to start with an R and end in a D.

    I just wish Sl had more than 2 mages in the entire faction. 5 moving shot archers are such a buzzkill.

    yes SL is fast, alot of factioners are

    if they arent standing toe to toe fighting us, we rarely get kills without our dismounter, because we cant catch them

    if your main concern is their speed, bring more dismounters. you guys group them alot anyway it seems, so it shouldnt be too hard.

    Well factions were fun for like a day or so, but now that 3/4 or the shard is SL. With new pcs. None of the other factions play because of the zerg. I hope the devs did not put a lot of time in this one. The trammies are having fun killing monsters but the non-SL fel players are taking it again.

    I like being small. When we were a medium size guild we always won. Now we only have 3 or 4 ppl usually and we get some good fights.

    Every Faction has their Group of fast people, or people who can run on top of bagballs ect. But either way I still think factions are fun! The way I like to look at it is if someone has to kill you use a speed hack then that means that they Prolly wouldn't be able to kill you without it which makes them suck worse then you!:) Personally I cant keep up with half the people in factions Espically some com people but that is who we fight the most when i am logged on, but either way die go into stats wait it out go back for some more!!:thumbup1:

    yea, i've always thought it was bs with the bagballs thing, but seeing that guy run through the wall just floored me...

    EDIT. nm just went and checked that out, didnt realize there was an opening right there....but still....how can you fight someone when they run through all the obstructions but you dont.

    I assume you're talking about the part at 1:33 into the clip.

    There is actually a 1 tile wide walk-way. He's not running through a wall.

    He is, however, running through haystacks, bagballs, candelabras, and a wooden box.

    No, the moongate to Mag will let you go through but not out. Up NW from the base, by the docks is a teleporter that will take you to trinny, just run from there

    It was complete sarcasm.

    As for Yew - I would advise that no one hang out there anymore. I saw 7 elite ninja archers insta drop the entire gate two nights ago. I didn't see anyone at the gate with swagger like them.

    I think I am giiving up on factions anyhow. I put my thief in TB figuring there would be someone to defend the sigils when I stole them. Boy was I wrong.
