    Last night I was bitten by the new house decay bug, and gated to my home only to find an empty plot of land. (I play daily and have for 15 yrs now, so my houses never fall - ever.)

    This was the main hub for all 5 of my accounts. In this home were items worth many millions. Items like 2 vet tele's and 4 rechargeable tele's, commodity deed box, 12 soulstones, both crystal portals, many PS's (a dozen were 120's), many tokens including heritage, and on and on.

    I was dismayed to say the least. As I was about to leave, a man named Macroga (who I'd never met) ran up and said that he alone had collected everything from the plot and asked me to follow him. Turns out he lives only a few screens away and he immediately friended me to his home - where he had locked down a dozen or so containers with everything I owned.

    I was able to retrieve all I'd lost. So when you think that things like honesty, fairness, or integrity are all but gone, then reconsider. Honor is alive and well on Siege, and Macroga walks in its shoes.

    Thanks again, Macroga....;)

    Nice to hear you recovered everything but I need to know do you pay for your accounts, or do you let them go into decay at al and catch them over and over again?

    I am asking because if this is a bug that effects active paid for accounts then it is a REAL big issue. Or is it affecting accounts people play with the decay timer over and over?

    It's people trusting the decay timer and getting bitten.

    Macroga has always shown kindness, I think I can speak for all of us when I said Macroga, you are one with a pure heart full of kindness. *curtsies*

    As I said, I am now (and have always been) active constantly on 5 accounts for 15yrs... I don't play the house timing game.

    Anyway, the thread wasn't about me.
    (Look on UHall for threads on the house decay issue.)
