    Lets be supper real the accouts are so old its only rares collectors who care, even then most of these RTB house are empty. People just put a house down played a few weeks and never came back.

    I love IDOC's where an active player has left the game, but the RTB houses are a waist of time for the majority, so not "everone cares"

    Well since i have a castle and have done for 10 years, I wont be worried about a castle. If the IDOC's not worth PvPing over its not worth anything! Enjoy your Scavenger Hunt. Some of us have more stuff than we know what to do with, so adding to that would just be a case of loading up on more Junk just for the sake of laoding up with more Junk.

    Like i said its fun to do an IDOC if the player was active but these RTB houses are empty and a waist of time.

    Any notice yet if the bugged unnamed houses will be touched too some day to fall, i might have missed the thread were this has been said maybe?

    I mean this kind of houses that noone seems to own - how are they called, bugged?

    He was just calling it as it was. I doubt he harbours any hidden agenda and i have to say i agree with him and i have no interest in RTB IDOC's either

    These houses need to be manually removed. Just take the coordinates and send mesanna an email.

    And I do agree, I ran around Pacific FEL yesterday.. what a freaking ghost town, KEEP spots open to be freely placed. (one currently by wind)

    I would urge folks to remember that IDOCing was a viable playstyle even when the game appeared to be much more populated than it is now.

    I've always kinda liked the idea that IDOCing was a valid playstyle, myself, though I could never do it for very long unless I was helping someone out, or helping a guild, or bored.

    I remember some years back there were similar threads. "When these houses fall, people will see how few players there are, and then UO will be shut down. UO will be a ghost town. You will be able to place castles everyplace even on Atlantic!"

    That was a few years back. UO didn't shut down, on GL at least the landscape didn't change as noticeably as one would think, and on Gl at least many of the falling houses were eventaully replaced.

    Just to be clear, as has been discussed in the Bugged Houses thread, this is an ongoing process. There is not going to be just one. two or three days of falls but seemingly a whole month or more. The bugged houses are decaying in dribs and drabs each day.

    To give an idea of numbers, my spreadsheet of all possible bugged houses on Siege (not all of which will turn out to be bugged, possibly two-thirds of them) stood at just under 320 before this started. After the two RTBs that started decaying today it is now down to 299.

    Those are refered to as the Ownerless houses Ron due to no owner line on the sign. They are old banned accounts lost by the GMs. I handed Mesanna a runebook full of them at an ElF carnival 2 years ago then I ran around Pacific over 2 days finding probably 99% of them and e-mailed the list with coordinates to her. Last I checked only the one with the singing ball and locked down cursor was deleted in the past 2 years and probably because other people spammed her hoping to get the rares.

    2 of the 3 RTB houses I knew of are now in a state of decay.

    I went on a tour of homes earlier and found about 50 houses falling in Tram and Malas alone. I didn't search Fel or Ter Mur. I found NOTHING falling in Tokuno. Ran out of time. Anyway there seems to be several falling in different stages of decay. Though sadly the house I REALLY want isn't falling.... go figure.

    I wish all 30+ of the houses Tyrrant owns on Origin would fall..just because!

    I mean if you have to name them things like..Minoc Castle 1...South Minoc Castle 2...Tokuno Island house 1....Luna Tower 3....you have WAY too many...and 99% of them are empty...90% of them are keeps and castles.

    Not that Origin needs space....:/

    Oh and I do own...well not *OWN* but I do have 2 RTB homes, both 18x18's that I do not use...I just placed them not knowing they would never decay :( Neither one are in decay status.

    this kinda saddens me, just because i was gonna try to get a Historical Sign for a couple of my RTB houses next year when they turned 10 years, haha

    is that sick?
    ok maybe it is, but its funny!

    Question?


    If a house that goes in IDOC falls and nobody is around, does it make a sound when it falls? :p


    Idocer's will be busy for a while.

    Is there any way to know if it's a RTB house? I had a wonder around Atlantic and found 8 "slightly worn" plots within 30minutes.

    Not EVERY house is going to be RTB, the normal IDOCs will still fall DJAd, but the majority will be RTB.

    well out of my 10 only 1 is falling.
    so maybe it depends on if the account its on is linked?
    maybe it depends on if you have logged onto that account in the last RTB event?
    maybe its a million little things that we dont know about.

    but its strange that one of mine is falling but the other are fine.

    Once again, this is ongoing. I estimate that fewer than 10% of the Siege RTBs have started decaying yet. But every day there are two or three more that start doing so.

    From my RTB houses 2 more have been added into the decay crumble today.
    So busy emptying now, what I in long work accumulated there - and now I really hate the new gifts with their item count.
    Should have trashed them immediately.

    This is certainly not the case on Siege. The houses are decaying seemingly randomly across all facets/areas.

    Lets be supper real the accouts are so old its only rares collectors who care, even then most of these RTB house are empty. People just put a house down played a few weeks and never came back.

    I love IDOC's where an active player has left the game, but the RTB houses are a waist of time for the majority, so not "everone cares"

    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    hey mateys ........guys and gals ...make noooo mistake as mr W said ... a lot of these RTB house will be empty!!!!! ohhhhh yes ...cleaned out..like mine will bar some crap u can have free....

    however !!!!! a lot of players have got used to owning these houses...have got complacent with them ... and storing stuff while they take leave....thinking they are safe and always will be... well they have been for 5-6 years ...lol.... so some will be packed to the rafters.... just find em folks.....have fun on ya travels

    From the houses in my book that were IDOC and ready to drop today, most are back at the start again...somewhat or fairly.
    So i'd say NO houses are gonna drop this week or only when an invised GM actually drops them by hand.

    That's the danger of extrapolating from a sample size of one (you). The one I'm watching has moved (unexpectedly) to Greatly. now if LS itself wasn't IDOC today...
