    It used to be in faction days. Placing items to block players. I'm not sure if it still is, as it was more of a faction issue which I rarely played(O/C for life)

    It's completely illegal. Whoever did that should be banned.

    It has never been illegal to block players on siege. The only exception was for faction strongholds. This point has been made clear many of times over the years. I am sure if you call a gm and wait patiently for a 3-4 hours they can help you though hahahahaha.

    I'm not asking because I want anyone banned, I'm asking for my own personal knowledge...I wouldn't ruin someones account over 500k in items, I'm not that petty.

    Hmm, if this blockage was gone then can you enter as a ghost?

    I have seen massive blockage of other areas which are more important than
    the one you seem to wanted to go in.

    Go get raised and just pick up those Minotaur artifacts, some people will pay
    you for them!

    Where is your corpse on the screen... hard to see?

    No, no... let me guess... you were inside soloing for keys... and when you tried to leave
    you could not... so the corpse is inside the cave of the hydra...it does seem unfair...does
    it not?

    I'm that petty, I would have paged on them right away or at the very least icq'd them (if I knew who it was) and called that person names to make myself feel better. I hate people that do things like that. I would tell them they are nothing but a shallow no good cheat and it shows that person true character to stoop to something that low. This game is about having fun and things like that have no place in UO.

    I have pictures of the perp too, I just didn't post them, wasn't sure if it was due to the RoC. I knew I was going to die when I came out to 2 EVs, poison field, and a tamer on the other side.

    There is a thread in on the Great Lakes forum discussing this. From what i read it is not illegal as long as the items are movable within reason. You can stack 10 bagballs on top of one another, but you cant bust a crate and sit out 120 candelabras in one tile.
    Should be illegal, but good luck getting help from an actual gm i havent gotten anything but canned responces in the last 4 year.

    It's illegal to totally block, unless it's within a faction base - which this is clearly not. However it is legal if there is a path through, even if it's only one tile wide.

    On the other hand is it worth the wait for a GM to report it? By the time you get an answer to your page you're rezed, the stuff's all cleared up and the person/s who caused the aggro are long gone.

    I tend to fume for a bit then shrug it off and carry on.

    This is a bit different but, not too long ago myself and one of my cohorots filled the luna bank and surrounding area with food using the create food spell, I mean totally full. It's wasn't blocking anything, but some players there at the time didn't like it and page on us. Shortly after that a gm messaged me to stop doing or it would result in some punishment.
    I'm also pretty sure recently someone was warned by a gm for putting blocking items around luna bank.

    I didn't bother waiting around for a GM. I just emailed the 3 pictures I got of the offenders along with journal logs to EA's complaint dept. No waiting for me.

    If you were so concerned about illegal activities you would probably have to quit your guild. Oh ya, only YOUR guild can do illegal stuff. If anyone else does it to you it is bad.

    I don't do anything illegal, and if my guild does I don't know about it. And if they do, page a GM or take screen shots, not talk on a forum Mr X. By the way, are you that guy that came to Chessy, got wiped off the shard and then cried that !C! hacked?

    Just making light of your hypocrisy. I think it is very ironic that of all people asking about illegal stuff it is a member of the guild you are in.
