    Um.. everyone already knows thats a tamer. You don't need to try to be clever, it's an exercise in futility.

    Mal we both know that I am fully capable of killing you alone. You have a video of it remember? I had my dread mare you had your 2 EVs..

    It didn't work, I wasn't hiding anything.. there is no clever ploy here malbador.

    I fail every time? Aren't you the old guy who always talks about stating things in absolutes? I can post pics of me killing you on non dreadmare characters. Just let me know geeze.

    If I ever fail its because a guard zone was present and you ran to it.

    Sorry, lol, but you spamming harm on me from 2 tiles away with evs hitting me isn't 'owned'. In fact you died twice.

    Don't you ever get sick of losing board wars? You don't have a leg to stand on here.

    Actually I was spamming lightning strikes, and nerve struck you once the entire time. That particular char that you got facepwned on doesn't have ninjitsu.

    And the difference is my offensive tactics work, yours don't (which is why you lost).

    And speaking of 'recent pics', lol.

    Occasionaly, although you will soon learn that everything you post Mal wil ALWAYS have an oppinion on it. Eventually you just get bored as he will never admit to being wrong

    Mals reply will be along the lines of, Show me where i have been wrong. When im wrong ill admit it...something along those lines. Probably with a quote somewhere in there, its the same thing everytime.

    I actually find Lynk amusing and dont mind reading his posts

    I must really make an impression on you to make your sig!

    And it is true - if you like to pvp on a mage we are recruiting for Great Lakes, Catskills, and Baja!

    It will be moderated - therefore it will not be free for all smacktalk. Posts will be removed from public view and posters admonished if necessary.

    Basic rules:
    1. no heavy profanity (if it's in the filter, it's there for a reason, don't bypass it);
    2. no personal stuff (you suck as archer is OK, you suck RL and live in mommy's basement is not);
    3. no porn / racism / RL discrimination;
    4. no exploits/hacks links/how-to's and/or freeshards;
    5. no pictures you would not want your mother to see;
    6. no links to objectionable content, especially if not UO-related.
    Enter at own risk, if you think it may be not for your frail nerves - stop reading now.

    (The rules are basically the same as on some other shard forums).

    Thanks Magdalene!

    Now, everyone, Mags and I are watching... this isn't unmoderated... just more relaxed. I think the rules are fairly clear please do not abuse them or your moderators....*grins*.... especially since that would be Magdalene and myself.

    Welcome and we hope you enjoy!

    I hate to burst your bubble, but I think this thread got made because Mystra resigned as a mod. He let PvP bs run throughout the forum, but whoever took over probly only wanted to worry about 1 thread of our crap talking.

    This thread did not happen because Mystra has taken time away from modding. Personally, I want to thank Mystra for the time spent as a VOLUNTEER and the grief endured. Sometimes I think you all forget we do this in amongst our real life jobs, family and usually at the expense of time we could be enjoying the game of UO. So, once in a while, give us a break ok.... and that will be the end of discussing current or former moderators except to give me grief (in a kinda nice way please).

    Now, this thread happened because the admins are aware of and sensitive to our viewers/subscribers wants and needs in these forums. You all needed and asked for a less restrictive place to post PVP/smack talk. Yes it will be easier to "redirect" these sort of threads to one but it isn't the only reason it was created.

    First and foremost you need to thank Magdalene and other admins for seeing this need, hearing your requests and acting on them as quickly as possible (remembering this is a large forum with lots to do and all handled by VOLUNTEERS). Now show your gratitude by having FUN and staying within the limits that were listed in the introductory post so we can brag about what model "citizens" we have on GL forums...

    If this was the problem, the last part of previous discussion was merged here, so it may continue-

    Magdalene, it seems as though there may be an opening for a moderator position on the Great Lakes forum.

    I'd like to nominate myself for this position. As you know through our past communications, I'm well versed in what is and isn't acceptable to post on the forums. My experience has also made me quite familiar with the Stratics stance on animal sex pictures, trolling, greifing, and discussing moderator actions.

    My resume is extensive, and I'm sure all parties involved would benefit from my presence.

    The ball is in your court.

    Since this is the new 'one and only' PvP thread I feel I should post some important information that was shared in the last thread. This is a big deal for visitors that want to get a 'glimpse' of the PvP from the forums.

    [​IMG]

    This is a pretty accurate breakdown of the guilds. I think the graph speaks for itself.

    *wonders*....yes, yes it does... Lynk likes bright colors and thinks in circles....wait... did I type that out loud!?!?!?!?

    FYI, I have never met Lynk (that I am aware of) tho I have often made invisible faces at him (but then I have most people in game) so any "grief" I am giving him is meant in fun only....

    And Lynk as far as the moderator job ... just keep trying. Maybe someday, when you grow up a lot, you will be able to submit a serious application! DANG... did I type that one out loud too?!?!?!

    OK... who is the wise donkey that sent me the memo that it was "pick on Lynk day"? I seem to have taken it to heart....

    SO Lynk, where does my guild stand on that chart? All 4 of us ya know? In our 3 encounters with your guild we have managed to killed approx. 12 or 13 of you/your guild (numbers are approx.) while losing 1 or 2 (again, numbers are approx.). We are RUOH, before you ask. You know, the magical shortbow that screws up your syncs & ninja forms? Thats our guild. SO, I think its time to re-evaluate that picture.

    Thank you for your time. :D



    EDIT: Someone else transferred over, and i transferred a 2nd character here, so we are up to 6 members now. =]

    I think you might be confused.

    Any time we have fought your guild on Great Lakes it's been with SO? holding your hands. In the past couple weeks I have not fielded more than 4 players on at any given time.

    I don't even have 12 or 13 members. The most I have ever fielded was 8 or 9, and again - that was a long time ago.

    The only thing your magic shortbow / dread mare did was kill a parry mage that was already in stat loss... but kudos.

    In fact.. last night when you were zerging us hard with SO? your axer (not implying it is your character, rather your guild) went down.

    As it stands you are lumped in with the SO? circle. The only thing you've actually made me consider is adding a "bad at math" circle for your guild.

    So lets recap - my very small guild comes to Yew and sees about 13 SO?, 4-5 RUOH, and however many =82= decided to show up. We still get kills (on your guild and SO?). I don't expect to win the fight with that disadvantage, but we always get more kills than deaths.

    (as a side note, your hit area bow does not mess up animal form. It's stat loss that makes me unable to cast it but once out of 100 tries)

    I'll be sure to post some screen shots of our next altercation. I'll be the one posting full screen shots with a title and task bar. (with trees)

    And hey man - you don't need to explain yourself to me about why you allied a zerg. I get it. Some people need help.

    And then! IDK where your 3rd member went; but it was kengo and myself vs 2 of you. And we killed one and the other ran off. Then you came back, and we killed the stat guy again (BC parry is pretty lame) just bc kengo wanted his points too. SO thats all :(

    I agree you guys are a lot of fun to fight. More fun without the tamers.

    And Bombastic, don't hate on my template. This shard is overcome with archers. As a small guild leader you should appreciate a defensive build..

    The third one got statted by SO? dismount/all kill shortly after I went down on Tank.

    And if you'd like the truth; we did a faction ally; bc it has become apparent to me, with the exception of =82= (who works with minax 24/7), everyone seems to gank up on the poor SL. If this was bc of SO? or w/e, thats fine. But dont hate when it was the TB, MINAX, and COM (And the =82= SL!) at the gate the FIRST NIGHT!! all teaming up again the 2 of us (without our faction suits, and my 41 hci with a vermin slayer tally self!!).

    So lets get mad that we allied so my magical shortbow wouldn't hit them when you attempt to sync but scatter. "OMG WHAT IS HITTING US ALL AT ONCE! WE ALL HAVE PARRY!! THIS CANT BE HAPPENING!! NOooo!!!11111!"

    But agreed. If UO would fix magic resist to be something useful; I suppose you guys wouldn't have room to run ninja/wrestle/parry/resist/med/eval/mage. It technically is UO's fault. :wall::wall::wall:

    You should probably hurry up and get over yourself.

    We are well aware of hit area effect and the means to overcome it. I've seen FKD holy lighters that were more effective at disrupting.

    The only problem is that we like to stand and fight, which tends to disagree with dread mares as they exp/fs/firebreath alot.

    I have also come to realize on this shard, quite a few templates are useless.

    Any template with disarm against a mage, BC THEY ARE ALL PARRY WRESTLE MAGES. They need to bring back disarming of shields.. :bored:

    I'm sorry, but every NINJA I have fought on this server has been awful also. So unless they are just bad, its useless here.

    Archery is quite useless. I am running it on one of my chars, and have whiffed 14 times in a row once (in 3 days), it was pretty epic.

    Also Parry/Bush characters with 18 ways to heal, evasion, and 50 ep. They don't even hurt anyone. Just run and run and run. Which BTW; Shouldn't diminishing returns for pots come out already? I can't tell you how many times people have lived bc they ran to a server line chugging pots the whole way.

    And technically, Tamers are very useless on this shard so far too. Everyone I have fought uses oldschool invis items. Even someone said in vent "Wow, how many charges does XXXX have? Dont they run out?" That stops pets dead in their tracks. If you don't have any, go buy some! :thumbsup:



    Uhm.. thats about it for now. Feel free to add to this post of "USELESS PVP TEMPLATES ON GREAT LAKES!!"



    Oh, and an EDIT!!

    I am not one of the people who glitch my dread war horse who to fireball 875843759 times and all that nonsense. So you dont need to worry or complain about that to me. Trust me, I am aware and it is very lame sir. *COUGH =82= COUGH* And while I am adding things; I like how =82= can make pet's attack people in the same faction. Its pretty awesome.
