My proposal for faction buy backs is not a cry, nor meant to come off as one. Let me be clear when saying this: -Siege Perilous/Ultima Online was given expansions just like any other game out there on the market. -With expansions, comes new items, new skills, new pets, new monsters, new lands, etc. With this comes new templates. -This makes Ultima Online an item dependent game. It's always been that way and will only get worse unless you learn to adapt. -Mystic/EA offered ways to try many new template variations, to peak interest of their current and dwindling player base. -Not all will like these changes, but you must learn to adapt and know when to speak out about what needs to go or change/nerfed. So, with that, I say you honestly need to adapt or move over to UHall and join the band wagon on getting a Classic Server back. I gave suggestions that will keep UO in its current form (instead of slapping them in the face like you and others constantly do with being so unhappy with their ideas such as faction artifacts). If you can't understand yet, that with: -Lowering faction cost -Removing player name tag off faction items -Removing hero/evil dyed system -Re-implementing; Cursed Arties, Marties, ToTs at an accelerated drop rate -Revamp loot/luck system You'll get a better, more populated Siege Perilous, then shame on you for being so thick headed. On a side note, I had another idea; -Require 90 Tactics to use a bola !!!
