I Love the new titles, always wanted something like this.
Required town loyalty? Venerated for baron/baronet?
I'm only adored on TC1
There where more titles like Duke.
You have to declare loyalty on a town first.
Can still change it afterwards.
Citizen - Knight - Baronet - Baron - Viscount - Earl - Marquis - Duke
Citizen - Dame - Baronetess - Baroness - Viscountess - Countess - Marquise - Duchess
Hmmm... I wonder if they keep going up in nobility the higher your loyalty gets.
Edit: Thanks Nimuaq!
...and if you arrested 1.5 Million Angry Rioters AND pu tout 100 Million fires you are the new King of Brit!
until all your points decay the day u forget to log in and you become another member of the common rabble again.
No one has said that ALL your points decay in one day of not logging in.
Even with decay as it is I have easily maintained 'adored' by arresting 5 rioters alternate days.
Gross exaggeration is not in any way helpful. Will everyone using this tactic to promote dissension please desist.
God I love it when Petra talks like this...... U go girl!
Except that it is misplaced, because clearly I was extending Devil99's joke. Sure i used the word "all", but a joke (and what Devil99 said was clearly meant to be one because king isn't a real title that you can get) based on "exaggerated" numbers needs a followup with another.
Given the decay rates, at 1.5 mil individual rioters/100mil individual fires obviously you would only be king for a day, and be a member of the rabble on the next decay cycle if you missed a day logging in.
Nowhere did i mention decay rate at "adored", I mentioned decay rates at the made up Brit King level. In other words I was referencing an addition to the system that was created by another player. Therefore there could have been no "exaggerations" and "promotion of dissent" about what goes on in the current system.
First of all if we really wanted to talk numbers, the higher your loyalty is, the greater the decay rate per day is since its based on a percentage. Approximately 1% if i remember correctly.
Note that Devil99 did not say 100 million points but a flat out number of fires and rioter arrests, so that is the number I used to calculate this. (Reaching these numbers would take you 3.1 years from just putting out fires if it took you 1 second to put out each fire with no delay in between from finding a fire and moving your mouse)
Even at a 1% decay rate, if you somehow managed to put out 100mil fires and rounded up 1.5 mil rioters , the amount you would lose from decay that you would need to farm back to regain the title would be so great that it might as well be "all", to anyone who isn't some kind of literal machine.
If you were magically granted the "king title" and you did not have to do the above, missing a day would set you back far enough that it would not be humanly possible for you to get it back within a reasonable amount of time unless you were some kind of robot that just sits there clicking 24/7 until you reach 1 million fires and 15000 rioters. 281 hours if we assume that the fires and rioters spawn right in front of you, and it takes you 1 second to click each. Exponentially higher if you have to find them yourself.
Given the numbers put forth from the post I was quoting, even if I did not mean my reply as a joke, it could hardly be considered a "gross exaggeration", since in either case, it would not be possible for a human player or even a bot to reach the numbers in the first place until after several years of 24/7 button clicking have passed.
Seriously, do I have to explain why I chose my words the way I did to this extent?
Yeah, god forbid someone use obvious exaggeration when making a point/joke without getting the modstick waved at him. I mean I'd hate to post on a forum where something horrible like that could slip by.
yes they are nice, but note the fact that every title requires a big donation to the city, a certain loyalty rating and the citizenship (obviously) that preclude the chance to get the title on every city. It's also possible that you lose the title with the citizenship as well so be careful.
An example is the Duke title that requires the highest loyalty and 50 mil of donation...
NOT SURE IF SERIOUS!!!
Not sure, realy!
Considering text doesn't convey intent nearly as well as speech, and the recent dramatic increase in hyperbolic exaggeration with regards decays and the like, can you really blame Petra for her conclusion?
(that was rhetorical, obviously you can, and do, but then text doesn't really convey rhetoricality of a question any better than humorous intent)
On a related note, where did you get that the decay was based on %s, and not a fixed rate?
STOP The Decay of Town Loyalty NOW! NOW!!! NOW !!!!!!!!!!!!!! | Stratics Forums
Also talked about in this thread, starting around post 38
City/Town Loyalty | Stratics Forums
Its probably not completely accurate, but no ones actually said they were wrong.
k, sorry. I guess I misplaced my sense of humour today. It's been that kind of week.
I'll start a search for it, I'm sure it's around here somewhere.
just guessing here, that it uses the 1%? decay rate on non log--in days.
What I wouold like to know is, Is it sufficient to just log into your account each day or do you have to log in each character with loyalty every day?.
you must log each character everyday... that's why I still saying that once a week is more than enough...
I think it is silly when she talks like this
No worries, it became a not-so-funny-joke after he explained it in excruciating detail.
Ouch! Can I become Duke of the Britain Library for that much?
I can't log in and check this out, what are the prices for the titles? Is what Frarc published the extent of them?
The higher the title the more expensive it is. If you like the knight title requires just 10k and commended
Duke is the highest at 50M
Congrats on your months of grinding! You've earned the opportunity to pay fifty million gold for a title!
LOL x infinity.
All the cities dislike me because I kill rioters, can I have an evil title?
Reckon they found a form of that gold sink folks have been asking about for years tho.
I can't help it: Royal Titles: Become a Lord or Lady today. .
Gotta love it
It doesn't work when you try to buy. Oh well guess I will have to get my royal title the old fashioned way. Raise an army and conqure someone
There's not too many royals running around in the cow town where I grew up.
You might be suprised if you count weak claims and minor nobles.
FIFTY MILLION????? (falls over in a dead faint)
I've never had that much gold so - - forget about titles.
One would think the Title should be FREE after wasting so much time achieving and keeping venerated status from decay for different cities on various different characters.
Oh well, be - - C'est UO.
We have to import them. Danish royalty opens Colorado wind factories | MNN - Mother Nature Network .
Some of them came over when monarchys fell but others are just such minor claimants that it was better coming over here. France and Russia minted nobles like we mint reality tv stars.
I think it's a cute idea personally. For 50mil, you'd think that would buy one a few amenities, or at least special announcements by NPC's
Yeah, I understand what you're saying. And I hope no one is offended by that link. I'm not trying to be disrespectful of anyone's heritage or culture. It just tickled my funny bone when people started posting the details about how much those titles cost and made me remember stuff I read years ago about purchased titles when I got started doing some genealogy research.
Same here I think. Then again being here in the deep dark south they may well keep the information to themselves. Nothing like walking over to a big burly ole redneck in a tobacco juice stained wife beater and overhauls and trying to explain to him you are a Duke of yadda yadda.
Sad that we have to worry about that really. A joke is just a joke and meant to make folks laugh
Who really wants to be serious 24/7? Life's TOO short for that stuff.
Good lord if someone is that offended then need help. I was just saying you never know. Wasn't that odd prince that married Trumps ex not even really a prince? I am not offened, of course any claim my family had could have only been enforced if we won a few wars of succession. Well that and most of the nobles all up and died. Have any of you seen how far out the British royal family line is plotted. Last time I checked it was over 1000 people.
Very Cool Indeed!
Wonder How Many Barons for each city
What about titles for disloyalty to a city. One of my char killed many rioters in a city. Will he get a title?
Titles and prices:
Knight of ... 10K
Baronet of ... 100K
Baron of ... 1 Million
Viscount of ... 2 Million
Earl of ... 5 Million
Marquis of ... 10 Million
Duke of ... 50 Million
When i declared Loyalty to Jhelom i got Citizens of Jhelom right away without paying.
So for a mere 50 Mil I can buy Royalty
Can I sit on the throne of Britannia for 500 mil?
No way. It's an abandoned throne. They are going to auction it off like they do those abandoned storage lockers on Storage Wars.
What a waste of money
These titles wont mean anything when our lord Exodus takes over
So you buy a title for 50 Mil and still gotta fear it will decay...
Y u not give us the opportunity than, to buy all the old stuff too, and arties, and EM items etc..
So lets say: I am a rares collector, i want to own a full set of phoenix armor - let me buy it for the shards current estimated value of 250 Mil each..
Or i want that "You were naughty this year" full bag too - i can have it for 500 Mil on a NPC vendor...
THIS would be gold sink per excellence - not to give my gold to another PLAYER, i give it to an NPC and its *POOF* forever..
You can go on with that with ANY item from the past, today, the future - just give us everything in game artie or whatever for a hughe amount of gold - hell, implement a in game Vendorsystem were i can buy with my ACCOUNT - i dont get billed my monthly subscription i get billed the subscription PLUS the items i have bought for $$$ a month - make it you cant spend more than 200$ a month for security reasons so nobody gets broke IRL because of this game - just do what the Facebook game's do since years..you want an advantage, you can buy it - just gimme your $$$$ - LOL
Titles for money - OMG - i mean, ist this RUSSIA or what?
And btw. i miss the real old titles - Doctor, Magistar, Professor, stuff like that..what about that...
And, if i buy a Docotor title on UO, will it count IRL - will i get a document for it?
I understand what you are saying, but.....
Atleast the title won't go away from decay as long as you log in *shrugs*
sure...i know this one day log in feature and i like it - would be interresting what happens if you miss to log in 3 days, lets say...you get one title down or lose it complete?
and, how much would it be to get the highest title back if you Marquise? 40 Mil to get Duke back? or less..or 50 Mil again? lol
