    If there is enough interest, we may be starting up Fight Nights again after the first of the year. There are no prizes involved, so all are welcome to participate whether you think you're the best of the best, or just like to duel for fun or practice. Its not much fun when we only 2 or 3 duelers show, so if you're interested, speak up! :)

    yes , um . rules ?
    i am not familiar with all the details. is it looting or no ? and if no how would you enforce that ?

    ive heard of your fight nights and think its a great idea but to be honest , i have somewhat questioned your impartiality. if someone breaks a rule, would you really stand up to defend me even if i am usually considered an enemy?

    if its to be a fair fight i would probably try .

    These duels aren't set up like typical tournaments. Fight Nights are set up for the entire community with fewer rules and regulations. It is a much more relaxed atmosphere.

    Typically, the rules are no pets, no fields, no summons, no looting. We also do not allow faction artifacts and that is currently the only limitation for equipable items. Pretty much anything else goes. [Although we have not yet decided whether to allow imbued items.]




    We make every effort to be fair to everyone, even enemy guilds and I believe those who have attended in the past will attest to that. We do not allow looting and take every possible precaution to minimize that risk. These duels are for fun and/or practice in a fun and lighthearted atmosphere. Anyone who is terribly disruptive, steals or loots will be banned from the house and future Fight Night events. Typically, there aren't any problems and everyone gets a long just fine. :)

    Having said that, participants and spectators should not bring more than they are prepared to lose. We have had very few problems with looting, but given that we live and play in the land of peril, it can and has happened.

    Certainly, any would-be looters should think twice about it. That type of reputation is difficult, if not impossible to shake.


    And yes, Sweeny, I will duel you... or I'll at least TRY to! :lick:

    Seriously? You're considering no imbued items?

    The one thing that would easily balance out any equipment gaps between people?

    Who cares if you remember it, not sure that you were anything special in those days. I asked about you and no one knew who the hell you were. It wasn't a guild from Atlantic that came over... it was a bunch of us (the best of us) from many guilds that came over.

    We were talking with some ex Forged Union (FU) peeps (who are in my guild) about it last night and remembering good times. Fighting along with people like mandrake and eval... blah blah.

    Your shard had a few decent PvPers and they wound up fighting with us before long lol... Oinland was our biggest challengers and they still got curb stomped. KoC was a freaking joke.

    Atlantic versus Chessy (AvC) days... good times.

    They have to do something to make sure some of their guys win...

    its like when I fought Mook when he was decked out in faction equivalent gear, using weaps he'd never carry on the field... but ppl weren't allowed to use faction gear.

    Never did step up to the plate to duel me. Made as almost as many excuses as Mono.

    Wasn't saying it didn't happen...just saying I don't remember it. I remember SX coming over and giving the shard a run for its money. FU had some pretty decent guys after dnd broke off, but their best PvPer still wasn't as good as OiN or IC!'s worst mage. Forsythe and Iron Fist were both pretty top tier as far as field PvPers went, and Sythe was a good duelist. I remember the supposed best dueler of Cats came over(Bill Nye) and got steam rolled by Cadul. I remember an LS guild trying to raid us...XH I think? Exhiled from Humanity. And I'm sure Mandrake knew of me, last time I saw him was on a free shard and I was running with Ghostface and a few other old NfC guys.

    Vortex, I haven't seen you on ICQ in order to throw the flaming balls of death back and forth.

    Send me a message next time you're on after 5 central.

    Forsythe was pretty good, he still lost to Babu. Iron Fist also lost to Babu (and badly.)

    Bill Nye was good (So was Arthurs Knight) but he wasn't any where near the best. XH cross sharded with guilds like PK HQ n ****. I actually played factions with them on Atlantic because we were so bored dominating everyone (no one would raid us) that I split off and PvPed with the Cats guys to spice **** up.

    Funny you mention Cadul because he got steam rolled by Babu and Sweet Death too.

    Cadul was always considered the best UO:R dueler. In P16 it was guys like me, Forsythe, Revinence, Cadul, etc. AOS dueling mostly died. Pre UO:R(Not sure when you guys invaded) it was Decay. When XH came to Chessy they got beat down BAD. They came when archer mages were big and Anat+ Eval = wrestle was first introduced(Right around p16 I think) and couldn't hold up against any guild. I used to have lots of pics of like them, M, and a few other Chessy guilds have some HUGE battles at Brit GY.

    That is what I liked about Chessy, there were so many different guilds, and sometimes we did "color" wars where all the guilds would break off, and we'd do an NFL style recruitment process, and your ex enemy may be your new Roger Wilco target caller. Memories :(

    everyone was aware of the rules and lets not forget i killed you 5/6 (4 times in 8 seconds)
    and you gated out 3 times to fix you suit and change skills...please

    also lets not forget that NYM and Sun Chix both had arties suits and I killed both of them too!

    the only one with excuses about that night was you!

    now every mage runs parry so not as much fun...

    if you want to fight, im out on Siege 4/5 nights a week just show up and we can fight simple!

    Excuses? lol. You mean like the excuses that poured out when I challeneged you to a fight for 1mil and winner keeps the loot too?

    I didn't hurt your feelings pointing out the obvious... did I?

    And fights between you and I, you're the only one relying on crutches.

    And I'm like 40 to 3 against you in the field. ;)


    But we're talking about fight night here. I was pointing out that the rules are set up to benefit players like you (and I'm sure it's a coincidence your in TnT too... lol)

    Allow gear/stuff anyone can get, ie: faction items, imbued items and any items. Or just don't do it, few will come. Just like the last few times when we realized how wack your fight nights had become.

    We came in UOR. And several of our guys beat Cadul... lol.

    Dueling died in p.16 and didnt come back until they fixed casting... especially when if you had 120eval/magery in p.16 you could exp/ebolt a 7xGM and kill them. That was the first time in UO's hisory PvP took a giant leap from skill based to item based. (see Runics + powerscrolls)

    And XH got beat down on Atlantic pretty bad too. We set them up with housing, supplies and everything to train up their characters (we liked PvP... a lot.) I wound up joining them (Geo Sith and I made a guild together and teamed up with them in Minax) and fought against the KB/EB domination for fun. God those 24 hour sigil guards were some good times.

    Ya on Chessy we had a HUGE faction following. TB had a guild called S-S that literally guarded 24/7 for 2 years.

    I'm going to hold a fight night too and anyone with a character that's not named Draxous has to fight naked while any character named Draxous can use whatever items he/she wants.

    I bet you'll enjoy that too.

    My reasoning was that we want newer players to feel free to participate as well and they most likely aren't set up with imbued items yet. We just hadn't discussed it and haven't had any input from others on it. If you all feel allowing imbued items is fair, we'll allow it since such items are at least obtainable by all players.

    You could imbue up some 'guest suits' for newbies to borrow. Anybody that steals it doesn't get invited back, and 100K should easily get a replacement.

    Thats about the only Fight Night you would ever be happy with. Draxous wins = he's a happy camper. Draxous loses = sour grapes and its everyone elses fault but his own. Typical.

    Because that made sense.

    I blame Petra, it's all her fault.

    And can you explain how faction items aren't obtainable by anyone and everyone...? Oh oh!!! But under the same pretense you're allowed cursed arties which don't even spawn anymore? I'm sure the newer players appreciate that load of horse crap. Think of the newbs... k?


    When I fought Mook at fight night, he was using uber bows worth millions and fully suited with high end runics and decked with cursed arties. Fighting me with a suit he would NEVER use in the field. And he pounds his chest? rofl.

    And you want to talk about a fair environment?!?!!? lol. I used the suit I actually PvP with.

    Sorry sister, things don't change... you still manipulate the truth. It's your world. Too bad it's not reality.

    The reality is that you went home and changed suits and templates several times during that fight night and you still lost. There is your reality. As much as you hate it, it had nothing to do with who ran the fight night. Your skills simply weren't up to par. Mook won and lost rounds to other players, but I don't hear him making excuses and spewing sour grapes everywhere. Try showing up with a better attitude next time.

    It's pretty simple. If you dont like there rules host your own fight night.

    I don't like there rules. I think you should be able to use any item that your toon can possibly wear. The items are in the game for a reason at that is to be used.

    That is just my opinion. I'm not saying they're wrong for making there rules that is everyones choice as individuals. I'm just simply saying if you don't like it then host a fight night your self.

    lol!!!

    Did the truth really sting that bad kat?

    You do realize I was on Hellfire that night? You do realize that Hellfire wasn't in factions and only uses one type of suit? You do realize Hellfire has no soulstones? You do realise Hellfire's 6th skill is hiding? You do realize you just made up a bunch of bull**** because I called you out...? The only reason I went home or even would go home, was to get more regs/pots.

    If I would of been on Draxous, I would of been a parry mage. Mook wouldn't of been **** to fight. Which is why he never fought me when I challenged him afterwards.

    But Kage is right. I don't like your rules. Your fight night sucks and is a waste of my time. No point in talking reason, your in la la land. Have fun with it... maybe more than 2 or 3 duelers show up. Doubt it.

    @Speedy - I think your guild references are way more current then what Draxous speaks of-Even then, he lives in fantasy land of events that never happened as does his little DF guild mates. :loser:

    @Draxous - Stfu, you're horrible.

    @Kage - Stop posting.

    Well Drax, I'm not the only witness to the fact that you left to change suit and skills. You're the only one in lala land around here. Besides, there was nothing stopping you from logging on another character, suiting him up and setting up a duel with rules that both you and Mook could agree on. Those types of fights happen all the time, yet you wait 6 months to ****, moan and come up with excuses.

    Anyway, I know... Our few little rules suck, you hate our event and you don't want to play anymore. Its cool, we get it, so there really isn't any point for you to continue posting in this thread.

    dont let some whiny ***** who doesnt even play anymore ruin your event. even if half the duelists would hate the rules you set up, a good bit of them still will come if they have time, because there isnt really alot of options when it gets to such events and they always have the option to set individual rules.

    Agreed...I'm not much of a duel guy but I show up when i can to watch the fun
