I won Uo

Discussion in 'UO Siege Perilous' started by Tairon, Feb 16, 2009.

    Tairon Guest

    I would like to thank everyone for their support in declaring me the winner of UO. It has been brought to my intention by several players from opposite guilds/factions that it is pointless to play if I am on the field. Although I feel I am decent at what I do, I was astounded to learn that I had infact won UO.

    I would like to thank my parents, my fans, the academy, those that voted for me, and of course God for the opportunity to shine!

    I appreciate all this glowing praise and humbly accept your surrender.

    Sincerely,

    Tairon

    Funny post. I would by all means consider fighting you 1v1...but when you are surrounded with 5 mages and a detector, it is a bit much getting dismounted.

    But if you like, I surrender.

    And for those who would like to call the kettle black me complaining of dismounting...does anyone even remember the last time I played Amanda when Nixon was not in stat? when I run around, do you all normally see a heavy in my hand, or something else? So don't bother going there...

    Tairon.....I think your letting your ego go to your head. Its the fact of you dismounting and Loki revealing. Both of your temps compliments each other well when you have 4 other LOW members on. You alone......I don't think many ppl are scared. But, with you and Loki dismounting and revealing with Hef, Death, Mayku, Tek........those odds are not in anyones favor except for LOWs. Its great team work and tactics. Again, everyones temps compliments each other very well. Don't let your ego go to your head. I think I pwned you last night 1 on 1 when you strayed to far from the pack.

    Sincerely

    Monolith

    2 Points, a) I am making fun of the complainers and clearly joking.
    b) the complaining started long before Loki got detect.

    Ps. Killing my blue noob doesnt take a heck of a lot yet. But was fun fighting you! and I think you will agree, I called no one, just had some fun 1 vs 1. Although the extreme loot afterwards kinda makes me think I should have said something in vent old buddy :)

    The thing that amazes me here is that Tigs beat Puffy to the first post. Do you still play Tigs, or do you just watch stratics waiting to make replies?

    let me give a visual aid to let everybody know where we all stand...

    [​IMG]
    (yes, I know they are not all orange, but I have only been on for 5 minutes so I know they are all there or I wouldn't have their bar)

    1. Zerg of nearly all mages - check
    2. Dismounter - check
    3. Detector - check

    what kind of force do you really expect us to put up against that? The really funny thing is that the "reason" LOW gave for leaving was to get more people to PvP...but it looks like they took most of the people with them. So be it...but do not complain when nobody puts up numbers that can compete with those.

    So we are gonna all now pretend that everyone only started complaining in the last 5 days? He only just gm'ed detect, and he put it on because everyone who was crying about me, went stealth. First it was boo hoo, Tairon is not in factions, how unfair, so I joined factions, and now its boo hoo they brought out a detector.

    Well detect only matters if everyone is hiding, it plays no role in pvp if the enemy is willing to fight. Detect does no damage, it only reveals cowards. So if everyone is willing to come out and fight, what does detect matter?

    Stop going off topic with detect, its the dismount that scares you all into your houses!!!

    Also, we have one dismounter, and one detector, every other guild has more dismounters, and we don't stealth around so you don't need detect to fight us. Just a touch of courage :)

    Let's not lose sight of the main point here, I won UO! ...........only took 9 years 11 months and some odd days...... and cost me $1188.81 USD which is a bloody fortune to us poor Canadians. That and the cost of getting highspeed into the damned igloo. But it was worth it. :)

    I've known Tairon for long time....I'm probably one of the few that known him the longest on this shard. Yes, I'm sure his post was meant as joking, but sometimes when ppl join certain guilds, they let there ego go to their head. I'm just giving some advice to him not to let his ego go over board.

    I'm sure alot can agree.......players join guilds and later become an arse, letting there ego get the best of them. I'm a prime example, hehe. :)

    Yes.....sometimes we need to be little smarter than usual and call it quits. Theres no need to get killed and lose our armor to players like Big D who just trashes our suits.

    I apologize about the dry looting........I definitely don't mean to be an arse. But its hard to see myself get dry looted by LOW and see my stuff get trashed. Its even harder to except that due to me giving items back to almost ever member in LOW to include Big D.

    Well since this post was meant to be light hearted and joke by the OP.

    I must respond with this now, yes it took me a few days to think of it.

    But Tairon, just think it only took you that many years months days hours seconds, and the population being 50-100 with 30-60 being active ( i wouldnt want to get an infraction for posting false #'s, so I didnt exagerate) for you to win uo!!!

    That is quite an accomplishment if I say so myself, Its just too bad you couldnt have won uo when there were people actually playing.

    How many people actually play outside of LoW, like what is considered a big fight now?

    10-15 people on at the same time on the same screen visable?

    This isnt me bashing uo, so dont take my words out of context its merely a question.

    Im trying to decide if the game has gotten better or worse since I took my last break. Im also wondering if its worth it to ever come back.

    Are there people on during the morning, during the day? Or is it still only an average of 10-20 players on from 8pm-1am?

    Im just trying to figure out what the current state of siege is so I can consider if its goign to be worth trying out.

    I will make my desicion after I get the proper information, and if it isnt as appealing as I had hoped... Than I guess I will have to just go to darkfall. I love uo though, just wish I could find some people to play with.


    So how is the population, anyone care to give an accurate census for active players?

    So from server up to noon - How many players are on at average?

    From noon to 8 pm - How many players are on at average?

    From 8pm to server down - How many players are on at average?

    All times are in EST zone.

    I will state this again because I want to find out if it is worth me coming back also, and winning uo.

    Thanks for your help, A promt reply would be greatly apprecaited.

    - Lord Puffy

    That or it's going to suck. Comic Book movies seem to be either way. DC has a fairly decent track record with first runs.


    And those pink shorts make you a superhero in your own right. :)

    My impression of Siege population is:

    KOC 10-12 pvpers, sundry farmers
    TNT 6-8 pvpers, sundry farmers
    JSV 4-6 pvpers, some hardcore non pvpers :Yeah Gwen!
    TDO 4-6 pvpers
    Gil et al. 4 pvpers, 200 really hard to find non-pvpers :)
    LOW 8-10 pvpers, sundry farmers

    If I missed any groups of any size I am sorry. My guess is that in prime time on a good night you could have as many as 50 pvpers, but we don't often see them all on at once. I would really like to see the shard login screen show how many players are logged in on each shard at the time you are choosing shards plus perhaps the peak number for that day.

    My numbers are not meant to provoke anyone. I am going to start a thread where gms of each guild could post their numbers if they wish.

    Dear Lord Puffy,
    It takes me about three weeks to visit every house on Siege Perilous.
    Houses do not equal population. Last year I took 31 days of March to take
    down the names of characters that I saw at the Luna bank and got about 275+
    names. Names do not equal population! It is better than houses though.
    The problem is that what ever method of counting is done has its limits in
    viewing players in the game and the time frame of viewing.
    I am sure the servers can count usage by counting the number of connections. Now, Connections does equal population!

    You are right to ask the developers to list the number of connections, but
    locally, those players may not be where your character is!

    *stares*
