    Anyone else think it would be cool if guilds had a guild bank that their members could all access and use?

    How would this be different from placing a chest in the guild-hall and setting it to guild access only?
     
  3. Its a WoW thing... if I could take a lil bit of WoW, like guild banks and a few others, UO would be nicer... the problem with chests is that if someone decides to clean out a guild, no one knows who... in the WoW system, it tells you what each member takes out and you set permissions as to what they can take and how many withdrawls they get per day

    I prefer the UO way.

    Just because someone has a habit of trusting thieves doesn't mean we should all have to live under the watchful eye of Big Brother.
     
  6. Its not really a matter of trusting thieves. You never know who might do something like that. It could be one of your most trusted guildmates who up and decides one day they are leaving the guild and take everything they can with them.

    I guess in UO you can still do the same... set out chests with different permissions for different ranks within the guild, but that still doesnt stop top ranked people in guild from taking it all.

    and what if someone's account gets hacked... Then the hacker can clean out all of the guild funds.
     
  8. Lets keep UO as different for WoW as possible :p

    I'll translate this: "Why dont we be totally narrow minded and refuse to accept that there are some things that UO could learn from WoW"

    Personally I've never played WOW, so i had no clue that they use guild banks.

    I love the idea though.

    A guild bank could hold everything for your guild. You wouldn't have to waste any more valuable space in your houses on potions/resources/power scrolls/armor/weapons....

    It becomes a pain always having to add a new char to your house list everytime a guildy makes a new one. not only that, but am I alone in enjoying being left alone in my house? I love my guild members, but normally when i'm in my house it's to be alone and craft.

    Another reason is all the multi shard guilds out there. How many guilds play 2+ shards? I know mine plays all east coast shards, and two west coast shards. It's very hard for a multi shard guild to place houses on all the shards they are active on. Let's face it...we don't all have two+ accounts. And even those who do have multiple accounts might not want to place on say pacific for a GH, when their home shard is Legends.

    I don't see any reason not to have a guild bank TBH. It could only help guilds/the game. In no way can I see it hurting it.

    yes an one of the greatest things we can learn from WoW is you don't have to make a good game you just have to hire over the hill actors and singers to sell it for you
     
  13. I dont care if WoW has used big name ppl to sell their game and to be honest, that has no effect on whether ppl stay and play or not. In all reality, if you like leveling games, WoW isnt all that bad. /shrugs to each their own

    The fact of the matter is, there are some things Blizz did right. Its nothing against UO, but it wouldnt hurt to take some of those ideas and use them here as well.

    Just change the idea up a bit to make it work for UO.

    WoW didn't succeed because Mr. T is out there doing dumb commercials for it.

    No, it succeeded because while the average IQ is still 100, the amount of brainpower you get at that point is quickly decreasing.

    Lol. Like you need any intelligence or maturity to play UO. Infact, I'd say you need LESS intelligence to play UO because it's all soloable.

    UO gamers just need new housing tiles and decorations to be happy. Hardly a intellegent or skilled game.

    With this logic, there is a good case against having guilds at all. I mean what if someone hacks the guildmaster's account? Then it doesn't matter. They could steal anything anyway and sell the guildhouse.

    Fail.

    Leave it alone.

    What if the guild master has a *Battle.net Authenticator?

    Blizzard Support

    I'm just going to sit back while the UO fanboys dismiss this, and misuse the terms "macro" and "script".

    Right, EA will direct subscribers to the Blizzard store to buy Blizzard products.

    What, exactly, does any part of this thread have to do with "macro" and "script" anyway? I ask because you're the only one bringing it up. Do you know what those terms mean?

    So that's all you've got? Now you just look jealous and petty when you were talking about the intelligence of UO players.

    Anyone who thinks either set of players is more or less intelligent than the other is an idiot themselves. Both groups will have teir fair share of less intelligent players. In fact you can bet that both groups have a pretty widespread range of players. Anyone who argues otherwise is biased.

    All things aside, this would not work with how UO bank boxes are coded. Essentially, Your character "carries" everything in his bank box All the time. However it can only be accessed when you are at a bank.

    I would love to see this changed, but i doubt it will be.

    So, if we were to have "guild banks," and they worked on the same code, this would increase the number of items "carried" by every character in the game, along with "carrying" the actual guild bank box. And that would mean much much more lag.

    Like i said i would love to see the entire bank system redone, but cringe at the thought of how many banked items would "poof"

    u mad bro?

    Go back to your game that requires no skill and has pathetic game play.

    Soon as I sell my Chesapeake castle for real $$$, I'm done with this fail game. UO died when ren was released, to cater to all the scrubs out there.
     
  26. You sound just like the WoW noobs I came across while I was over there =/
    Now please stop derailing the thread!
     
  27. Bye have fun :danceb:

    so...basically no one has posted any reasons why we shouldn't have guild banks. I don't consider the "no, it's like WOW" complaint valid.

    Guild banks...NOW!:thumbsup:
