    I find people all the time on Siege Perilous doing illegal things.

    I normally page under physical harassment and target complaint etc. Am I paging under the wrong thing?

    Because nothing ever happens to the unattended player.

    And I always come back and they are still there day after day no matter how many times I have paged...

    Are you guys on a shortage of Gm's? Back in the day you could always get a Game master to come and speak with you... I have not seen one in forever...

    Chances are the GM asked if they were there, and they responded. And even if they werent there, how are they harming you? I don't get people who cry "Unattended Macroer", to me they all seem like whiny little social rejects.

    98.5% of the time when someone quotes percentages, they're making them up ;)
     
  7. The nice thing is that on Siege you can kill them and take their stuff.

    it seems like alot of the "GMs" are bots. Guess bots stick together.

    A GM will not show up unless you use the function other(my issue/problem requires in game assistance). This is something Ive learned in the past few days.

    Haven't I seen you post before that someone who doesn't want to be involved with other players should play a single player game? ;)

    The whole point of a multiplayer game is that what others do effects you in some way. Cheating (scripting, looping, exploiting a bug, it doesn't matter) effects others in a negative way, and should be reported.

    Usually if I see someone macroing unattended I ignore them unless they are;

    A) Someone I dont like.
    --In which case I never wait around to see what happens anyway.
    or,
    B) Dumb enough to do it at Painted Caves Fel.
    --In which case im taking a murder count.

    Truthfully? They know the risk, they took it. It doesnt matter what anyone says they did something wrong, not you for paging on them. I'm sure a lot do get away with it, but a few also have gotten caught at this. There are people I have talked to in game who have spoke of bannings and perma bans, so it does happen.

    UO just simply isnt enough of a 'cash cow' anymore to keep GM's going 24/7. A long time ago you could be number 70 in line just to speak to a 'counselor' who MIGHT then call a GM. Now, you may only be numer 7 to 14 in line, but dont expect a robed figure to appear and kick it with you.

    And lastly, with our ever dwindling amount of players, do you think EA or mystic or whatever is in any big hurry to ban more monthly-paying accounts? If they are- THEN we should worry. Peace.

    And donĀ“t worry GarthGrey, this is nothing negative about your post. I think some Siegers might know what I mean...

    How would a GM's unattended Script know if someone is unattended scripting? I dont get you all sometimes.

    dude... stop paging. are they hurting you? do you enjoy being ignored by EA? stop wasting your time and let them do their "illegal things". what's the point in doing otherwise?

    i see people sitting in their houses all the time casting the same spell over and over again... go back 5 hours later and, strangely enough, they are casting a different spell from the next tier...

    are they hurting me? no. if i page, will a GM come? no. so, why bother?

    sheesh...

    if you don't macro, you don't play UO. you might have the game and look at it sometimes, but you don't play UO.

    how do you know what they are doing is illegal anyway? maybe, like many people, they are sitting there with a coffee and a david eddings book pushing a button every few seconds to train?!?!?

    have you not learned how to do this and do you not know that it is LEGAL?

    Ghost cams are legal, especially if they are unattended and monitored by illegal third party proggies. At least it looks like, since I have yet to see a guild using them having problems.

    Do you have a clue on what I am talking about? No. Did I say what the person was doing or even name the person? No.

    Is my post hurting you??? No. Will it make me stop asking about Game Masters? No.

    So why bother ? Sheesh.
