how does it feel Dev´s?

    what is ure impression dev team,if u see ALL the new changes u did in the past ,all the new event stuff,replica,sot´s ,faction changes ......
    what do u feel if u see that in short time after the "ah something is new " hype is over and most people doesn´t care anymore ?
    is the boredom intended?

    over 40 champs now, got 4 replica´s and 30+ sot scrolls and it is boring
    (it´s not only me, many player think the same)

    lol,sot´s with +fokus or other useless skill´s
    with a archer, if u do 3.4 or 5 champs and all what u get is a +5 fokus sot,lol
    it is chaeper to trash 500k gold in the trash barrel as to do champs

    as a fighter/archer, u have to completly repair the whole armor and waepons every 2-3 spawns.
    i see the age of banksitter comming,after SA release, MOST people dont like it to replace
    once a week theyre whole stuff

    i would like to see that someone of the dev-team take 1 character (archer) put him 1m gold in the bank,equip him with 1 complete set of armor and waepons and then do champs
    do it like a average player (NO god-mode)

    I'm not sure I get what you're trying to say, here...

    You're bored of Champion spawns, so your complaining?
    Is that it?
    With a little of the tired old "people don't like to lose stuff" thing, that you throw in everywhere?

    I've come to the conclusion that Der Rock definitely isn't playing the same game that I am.

    Case in point...
    When the change first happened, I was in the middle of a challenge. I took 2 non-runic exceptional suits of studded leather, a good bow (dryad's bow, cursed) and hunted for a month equipped with just that, a talisman (trinket or primer, depending on the spawn) and only insured the talisman. When the replica's were added, I continued my run and went spawning.

    The results? I survived much of the time, I didn't lose either suit of studded leather or the bow, but there was one close call (fighting a lich lord naked adds a whole new level of difficulty to the game!). When I returned to his "normal" gear (whole suit cost me less than a million gold), spawns suddenly became a lot easier, but no less fun.

    Up until now, every Ilshenar or Tokuno spawn is packed full of people, and even when I started the Weald spawns alone, by the end they were packed.

    The frequency of repairs isn't bothering me one bit on my archer (to be fair, my samurai is collecting dust right now because I found out how much fun an archer is). The only time I'm hit is by magical attacks, and those monsters usually die quickly as well.

    And if you don't like the spawns, there's still peerless, strong box quests, ML monsters and other mid to high levels of activities to do.

    The "useless" SoT's are just as fun at the +5 skill scrolls, and makes the useful scrolls so much more valuable when you do find them. And they keep people coming. If everyone had their scrolls and replicas by now, then the spawns would certainly be empty.

    Not I or any of the people I usually hunt with are bored after these changes, or after the invasions. And we're all looking forward to the EM events as well.

    I suspect that the Ilshenar and Tokuno spawns will be just as popular (until SA at least) as peerless runs, especially considering the value of certain replica items (tried to buy an LT sash lately?).

    In other words, I disagree with your complaint.
  5. Yep. The ghost cams have been moved to Tram now. Every time I get up to the 3rd-4th level at any spawn, regardless of the time of day, I see 4-5 people from the same couple of guilds roll in to finish it off.

    Does Exorcism work in Tram I wonder?

    You do realise that a guild like the one im in runs those champs ALL DAY EVERY DAY, as they are on 15min timers sometimes you dont get to the spawn at the beginning...and have to join at 3rd level!!!

    WOW Moan any more???:sad2::sad2::sad2:

    hehe... reminds me of times where we in the fel community would complain about these things and no one in the tram community would care or say please don't change anything in fel that would affect tram. lol

    Sure is easy to bash trammies isn't it? Big tough frooshies hold all the cards now don't they?

    No one wins if the trammies lose interest in the system. Those guilds in fel that have been doing spawn all the while only get more rewards with this change. If the trammies had the same number of spawns to do as there are in felucca there would be less problems with this publish.

    The OP complains about everything but just lying down and accepting a publish that could be better but isn't is not an option for some of us.

    Ahhh, feels pretty darned good. Mainly because I can actually see the real numbers, and not just the posts on Stratics :)

    You... you mean stratics isn't indicative of the UO population as a whole?

    Awwwww, you know I love Stratics, I even went to my first E3 as a Stratics reporter, but no, no, noooooo.

    Disclaimer: We still depend on the forums community for a *lot* of stuff, don't take this as dismissal. My goodness, even recently we were sitting here going "wait, dirty plates? what?"
  15. Can we get new underwear in 2D?

  16. goodness gracious all we need is a UO-RP style underwear model contest:lick:

    Hee hee hee... have to jingle your chain now and then, ya know.

    Yeah, I agree with Morgana. And dyable underwear. And bathing suits. Maybe add alternate underwear looks using that vendor in the alchemy shops that nobody uses.

  18. This might actually make sense if many of the spawns hadn't been sitting for an hour or more. Since they were, it doesn't.

    It would be fun to see some stats about the UO population as a whole (but then again, we'd probably just start arguing about what they meant)
  20. And that's...bad?? :)

    A Miss *insert town here* contest, with a Miss Britannia, then a Miss Sosaria contest ran from the winners would be awesome!

    I might even stop b!tching about Casca the Usurper if I could win the Miss Sosaria contest and get a title on my paperdoll! (he can keep his crappy ol' crown! I would have a tiara and sash!)
