    anyone have any ideas on why was it important for us to have blackrock on us last night if we could?, this is my guess....i think the machine is looking for blackrock..it messed up last night but did infact locate alot of it right around it, tonight when he turns the machine on....maybe those that had the blackrock on them last night and tonight will be teleported somewhere 1st?...wont only locate us but will infact toss us somewhere??...i dunno, any ideas??
     
  2. Well, I think maybe we will have some special effect? Sparkle maybe? I do not think we get anything to take home and lock down.

    Could be wrong, often am.

    i dont think we will get anything to take home either, but i do think were going to be teleported somewhere first and maybe get to make this choice about where our loyalties are.before the &*(^ hits the fan......maybe not, just a guess

    <font color="purple">been wondering about that, Otis.... since we do not, at this time, have any figureheads to make choices about.... will it simply be good and evil? dunno

    well it depends on why you participate in scenario events, for everyone its different, some would want to be there so they can say they actually took part in a big turn or event in UO..like the trinsic invasion, brit invasion, magincia..the battle in yew, minax..rescuing inu from yrigor, and some people only go in hopes that they can score something like rubble..nothing wrong with either play style...just dont set yourself up for disappointment if all your there for is to get an item that can be sold later

    Right ... all I got from the end of the Magencia event was -3ish mil in insurance and a couple tiny pieces of blackrock that Otis gave me. BUT, I can say I was there, and I helped defeat the Rift Guardians on Napa Valley, and that I made some great friends and saw several unlikely people working together.

    Yes, I also got goodies from the earlier portions of the event, and yes I sold many and made gold ... which I promptly lost in insurance mostly. At the end of the even, I had 1 mil to my name across 6 chars [​IMG], but I had a VERY good time!

    As for this new event ... perhaps having the blackrock will be like having Mystic weapons at the previous event ... give you a better ability to damage the enemy?

    Perhaps. Also perhaps the critters tonight will all be BR infected, and having BR
    last night kind of "infects" the player so the critters see you as one of them and
    don't attack you.

    You could be right about being teleported there early. During stress testing I remember being teleported around to different places.

    Were most of them towns and graveyards? I think that it was probably just a telestorm. Telestorms were common when Trammel first came and housing was finally enabled there. The rush almost broke UO, heh.

    The servers are clusters of machines, so to speak, that share responsibilities and divide the map. One gets overloaded and passes a bunch of characters off to a different subprocessor. Poof; new map location with no warning. Usually safe. Sometimes not.
