    Has Atlantic gotten boring/annoying? Wanna x-shard? Come to Pacific (if yr ping is good)
    Bring your whole guild and come fight my guild the Super Best Friends.
    We currently run pac, hands down, and need some enemies.
    Make a new character, get suited, get some.
    we are factions (min)

    2 months shy of 12 years on Atlantic and the charm is still there. I have a character on Pacific - just no reason to play there when all of my friends and family are here.

    No no..we are all still quite charming!

    Now where are those boats coming from pac docking at?
    I know a few friendly *coughs* pirates that may want to look at them.

    Atlantic had/has charm ? News to me. Even when I played it regularly, it was a singularly charmless shard. Some of the rudest, most obnoxious or downright ToS breaking behaviour I have ever come across in UO has been here on Atl. Granted I met some terrific people, some of whom frequent these very boards from time to time, and have a whole lot of memories and history on the shard that for some reason I cannot let go. It seems I am not able break myself of being a curator of other people's memories, lives, hearts and houses. So, nostalgia yes, charm, no.

    QFT.

    Atlantic is the most populated shard in UO. Youre gonna find more of everything here...the good and the bad.

    Law of Large Numbers = one of several theorems expressing the idea that as the number of trials of a random process increases, the percentage difference between the expected and actual values goes to zero.

    :)

    No i dont know you but this doesnt sound like you met too many nice people or hung around to many nice people...

    And i never said you where not nice eather... maybe have a bit of a temper though heh :p;)

    I have played Atlantic since 2001 and cannot say that anyone was so rude that it would want to make me move server.Quite the opposite :)

    I know I moved a char to pac and its been alot of fun compared to the Atl pvp, every coward has joined HOT instead of fighting them so now you have a guild with 100 active players on at all times, but after a while people will get bored with having no one to fight then things on atl will get better but right now atl is not worth playing if you enjoy pvp. Im sure atl is still for those that enjoy pvm as im sure that 90% of the people replying to this are pure pvmers and have lil clue what im talking about when I of the sad state of pvp on atl. Either ways pac is much better till things balance out on atl.

    You cannot have pvp without consequences... its not pvp you are talking about, it's like pseudo-post-pvp.

    Insurance and trammel got reason of PVP long time ago. I went there and checked it out... HOT or not, it's all lame repetition without any direction.

    And you generalise alot... it's not because mostly shady characters who don't give a **** about me and been exploiting you fools for a decade use the exploit I invented that noone understand it, its pretty simple AND straightforward.

    Some people do even personalise it to try to denounce it, but they get killed and or never talk about it in fear of getting killed. And for the rest of those who understand the first levels of the exploit and just accept it because its overwhelming in number all around, well I don't mind about that it dosen't get me critisizing. It's another thing to understand why I do not get killed for talking about it which creates a new category of mental illness for me. I feel so powerful I'm immune against paranoia, to me the universe is a big hologram and every little law of physics confirm this to me.

    It's not about me anymore anyways, in a way maybe I still hold a solution however, it's not very clear if this is a community either or just an arena where people deal each other ego blows... because it surely gets to me ; I'm not so powerful that I wish to change others, I am feeling hurt way before it ever gets close to this.

    Don't come crying to me when if all the children start dropping like flies and you have been too stubborn to open your mind that evil might POSSIBLY truely reside into this internet matrix. Or perhaps because you beleive me you will create it also and it becomes truth, either way don't trust me, but stop grazing like a sheep. If noone understood me my thread would have stumped over like a conundrum, it would not have attracted so many silent readers (and thats not even counting the folks who fall upon it as guests from google)

    Or close your eyes and take a deep breath, when it happens this way you're going to feel it less ? This isn't orange mechanics in quantum physics, this is something original and unexplored...

    In my opinion...coming from playing many other games and playing multiple servers in those games, it is all in WHO you meet and WHO you choose to associate with. There are pain in the butt players in every game on every server/shard, etc.

    There are however, as someone stated "terrific" people as well. Same goes for guilds. You pretty much get what you receive when in a larger guild, compared to a smaller one.

    The only one who can lose charm is yourself if you get tired of playing a game. Either quit or take a break.

    I stop reading half way into the first paragraph, iv concluded that you're insane and need a reality check.

    So many times this happened to me... so little consequence it's laughable.

    But somehow, it's still interesting to me, and there is still something that was supposed to be total fantasy that vanished like it was seeped in like a giant enlarged frog ; please forgive my exhuberance, but this is not easily forgotten !

    And what does this look like, honestly tell what you think !

    thats pretty lame that hot let themselves get that big.
    SUPR isn't accepting any more players currently, unless they are friends, or x-sharded to play with us.
    other than that, the competition seems to get bigger and badder ever day and
    we're getting some great fights. Thank you, atlantic, and HOT, for abusing players like Southern Rage... Pacific will accept all comers.

    Sounds great. I wish you weren't joking.
    No, im affraid if you are to rival us on our homeshard, your only hope is to join [m]. Some smaller guilds still offer some great fights when our vent is empty, but M is where the real deal is.

    Hey bud , your cool and all man. But false egos... false egos.
    Your guild is far from running anything... If they have tons and tons of numbers that means nothing but people hiding behind meatshields. I'm glad you're promoting the Pacific shard but if you say it needs variety.. SUPR has enough resources to split into about 10 crews which would provide a vast amount of variety and fun. :pancakes:
