    This is a statement on UO about the plots:

    • There are 22 lots each in both Trammel and Felucca. The island is divided up by North and South end. The North end is the area towards the beach area and these plots are 10K a ticket and you are allowed to buy as many tickets as you like. The South end is towards the bank and these are 2K a ticket and you may only purchase one ticket per account.

    This information is different than what your ticket shows, comment!

    For those whom do not use the Test shard, please describe the process of getting the ticket.

    Did you look at the statistics of the plot before buying the ticket?

    What does N have to be to deter you from buying a ticket at 10k?

    The menu seems to indicate you could have bought one ticket for each of the 22 plots on the North end, you agree with this?

    How big of a plot is this N-1?

    All the plots are identical in size. Its just about location really.

    The publish notes were written incorrectly. THe north plots are one ticket only at 10k (although you can buy one ticket from each plot).

    The southern plots are 2k each and unlimited purchases.

    Someone over there wasn't paying attention as they wrote the Publish notes lol.

    *hangs head in shame* I succombed to 'lotto fever' ! :(

    I bought tickets all over, in the cheap seats plots, and pricey sky box seats plots.

    I don't know why ! The thrill of LOTTO I guess the thrill of seeing gp taken out of my bank boxes per acct. I dunno on the slim chance of maybe..winning one or two plots that maybe I won't even want !

    And maybe I just did it cuz everyone says, I move around too much, just *in case I would win one or two plots + ~! * LOL

    Its ok i officialy took every single account i have and bid on every 10k plot there was with all of them. in my honest opinion to make the plots more sought after they should of done our normal siege 3x the price standard for the plots also. 10k is such chicken scrap making the plots so cheap anyone can farm mongbats for 9 days and get a ticket just before they pull a name.

    if you stealth on the other side of the monolith coin box you can open your pockets and gold will fall in from the lottery nut jobs fanataclly dropping their coins in.

    This is just going to be a way to attempt to slam every person on the shard into one tiny speck (if we all just put one accout in).

    Queen Zen's and Czarina's purchasing comments took all the wind out of my sails.

    I have no idea of storage but I doubt it can hold may already squeezed 4226 items im currently maxed at.

    I've thought of taking a nice vendor gate house, and having to throw away 1000's of items isn't appealing. Let alone out on whats going to be the new "Ghost Isle"... Or maybe it'll be the "New Luna" with mass PvP fights right out the front door... uh huh.

    And current real estate prices, plots are going for millions errrr... going for weeks empty.

    "Step Right Up and Win Yourself Siege's Newest Monkey On Your Back"
    Tickets are currently 10k and 2k and goooiiinnngggg fas... slow.

    Buuuuuuuuuuut...............If your not really caring about storage and doing something more for looks and generalized beauty then mag houses are very appealing. With the gardening and deco aspect it intrigues me so its worth dropping the tiny amount of gold to shoot for the lottery. Lets say i win a spot on each account. At least 3 of the accounts im more then willing to drop 2 castles and a keep to hold the mag houses. Currently its all guard zone so its the opposite of luna. If they keep it guard zone it will become a shoppers paradise as per all vendors will be definatly shoppable in guard zone from ANY design aspect. If it is not going to be a guard zone at least most people wont really be looking for pvp there considering im sure most that have purchased the lottery tickets are crafters. So as per your comments about the lottery, they are in vain and hold no substance. :lick:

    The plots will hold a 15 x 15 in theory and nothing larger. But a 15 x 15 is max secureds if memory serves. And if you have HS booster ya get a bit more storage, on any home you own.

    Siege does not really have a LUNA like other shards, so our Luna is nowhere near as disgustingly overinflated pixel crack malls of billionares, sellin junk for over inflated prices, that make no sense any longer.

    So I doubt seriously if our New Magincia will become another LUNAESQUE mess here, since we do not even have the same Luna mess, as other shards have, ie the ghetto of inflation.

    Do not let anyone take the wind out of ye sails..
    if ya really WANT a plot there, go buy some lotto tickets ! :)

    At worst, sell it if ya win,
    to someone that maybe does wanna live on the island,
    of misfit toys, hermits or castaways.

    I really had NO intentions of even buying any lotto tickets for New Magincia.

    Aside from lotto fever hitting me,
    once I toured it all,
    it looked to me like a perfect place/island,
    for those whom reject the establishment
    or whom reject the norm, to set up their new isolationistic sorta, homesteads ! :)

    So, I bought more tickets than I figured I ever would,
    and still it wasn't very many tickets, even, that I bought.

    Sorry Queen and Cz if I hit a nerve or something.

    The comment about living in a GZ just begs for Trammel venom.
    And the comment about selling is LOL.

    Those of you that want plots enjoy. Place is gonna be a ghost town either way.:talktothehand:

    Those of you dropping castles please post the "free to place spots" for those of us that want to move out of keeps and into castles.

    HA HA

    Actually my present Miranda house is more trammelesque' probably than Magincia will be, in that I gots purty flowers, bloomin trees all around my 18 x 18 presently, Mr. Treefellow, and the GZ is... lotsa pixies ! LOL

    Them cute lil pixies auto swarm any neg. karma person coming by my porch, don't even need to CALL em they just COME and attack any
    poor souls with neg. karma, them pixes just speedhaxxors. They probably swifter than any GUARDS are.

    And they are highly entertainin to me, when a vampire bat trys to come on my porch !

    I should call my 18 x 18 Miranda house........TRAMMEL
    instead of Enchanted Forest ! lol :hug:

    The part of magincia housing that appeals to me is not the guard zone its the gardening thing and community deco outside the homes. The guard zone thing was more a idea i was thinking about when actualy planting gardens. How pretty could you really make it if you get killed during gardening?

    One plot on Great Lakes had exceeded the 1 billion gold mark. Thats just the tip of the iceberg, will be many bids I'm guessing at last minute.

    Makes me laugh when I see the tickets sold there lol.

    This is why I want a house there. It will be a vendor town in ways Luna could never be on Siege. I will move the Slave Market there, and hopefully will draw more customers, that are currently too scared to leave guard zone. 15 x 15 is max storage. SA and 9th Anniversary rewards give a nice boost to storage too. I am at + 40% storage and 20% in bank box ( 150 items )

    Aside from vendors, I suppose trammel guilds like Gilfane *spits* could have their little trammy events in safety.:danceb:
