    OK ive been doing IDOCS since i got back..

    I get regs and such , its nice,...

    But whats pissing me off are people having 5 packys loaded and recalling out before 6 seconds have gone by or less..

    That or openning up gates to Fel around you so that you cant move and have to hit no for going in..

    I have seen the same people and guild looting stuff before it hits the ground..

    And no i dont want it all for myself....Im happy when people get good stuff...
    Its just the same people who seem to be using a hack or exploit to do it..

    One even told me they would pop a Harbinger at any big IDOC if to many none guildys show up...

    Like thats sort of childish...i think...

    But oh well i vented and trust me it helps to do so at times...

    Trammel that way -->
     
  3. Why does everyone use Harbingers as a threat? Just lure them away, and as for not getting stuff at idocs just be quicker!! Its pot luck what you pick up really without looking in to see what it is!

    Wonderful post that has nothing to do with anything said. Kudos! The OP said they were opening gates as sort of a deterent for moving. Because it opens a gump and you don't want to accidently click it. I'm not saying "Big scary Fel!" And to the OP, assholes exist on every shard. And they're usually all in the same guild. It's one of the facts of any MMO.

    Thanks Konge...i was going to reply to him...but its a waste of time...

    I just found there tactics to slow you down , just anal...

    There are new players who never been to idocs who would like a peice of the pie.

    I dont think they want to have to deal with jerks..

    And theres many a times i get nothing, thats life , and i go with the flow...

    They seriously need a way to remove post counts from people here also..seems thats all some peeps want...

    There seem to be multiple old large building idocs just now, has there been a change to the system or are more people just switching off?

    stealth is nice as long as the others dont use tracking, even in malas/tram i get tracked and they attempt to block me off somewhere, of course the ones i deal with are slow witted so its not a big deal, but i have heard stories of speedlooting of idocs that seems crazy, of course it could be the EC but who knows.

    Ah yes the speed looting...when someone loots a objrct that hasent hit the ground ,,ya i beleive..

    I have 120 stealth and 100 hidding..plus im a elf so they need someone around 30 to get me in tracking...ya sucks tracking is so easy..

    And i think more people are just giving up after last expansion...it happens all the time...

    I dont think there will ever be a game as dinamic as UO has or ever will be for char set up or game play..

    OK to the forum people sorry about this in advance...

    There needs to be a area to post a holles......but you need pics...

    EQ2 Flame has it why not here? ya i know theres jerks there too and they get removed...But theres alot here to..
    Not to mention one way back with few words... :)

    This is mild. Gates? sheesh, on siege, your lucky to be alive if you wait around for it to fall. There are dragons all over, DS ninjas, revealers, trackers. Guilds just PK any competition away, so be glad you get anything at all.

    Crying because people loot faster then you. And to be honest, it doesnt take much to load a packy full. Grab a chest of resources. Smart people just put one chest in each packy and move on.

    Go to fel IDOCs, and you wont see anyone with a packy, cause the packy would be dead on sight.

    I think it'll come with practice, Ive spend a day camping to end up with nothing but i think its mainly down to more experiened people knowing what they are doing, being prepared, organised and patient. Its like pvp, I suck at that as well, it takes time and practise to develop the skills.

    Find an experienced idocer and get some tips, then start applying them.

    If I could decide, I'd abolish IDOCs altogether and let the items of an IDOC go *poof*. It is insane how people are accumulating items. UO has become a hoarder's and collector's game. All events, everything is item-centered.

    Well, this is just me rambling again.
    I just think that without the items people would have more time to care about other players again.

    I've said this for years. As soon as I do the 'IDOC' guilds come in bawling about playstyle, blah blah.

    It is getting something for nothing. Houses should drop with all contents deleted. It would make it more interesting for people to have to go acquire said items instead of scooping them off the ground.

    I watched a well known stratics poster, reach under a house sign that contained no less than 50 identical chests, and pulled out 1 particular one...truly miraculous, Or not...Get over it folks, you WILL NOT BEAT a script user at a Public house, that has their eyes on anything visible. Your best bets are to stick to private houses where no one knows whats inside..

    1. Saving uo's history.


    2. Its hard work Idocing.


    3. Play style. *yep*

    Missed some I am sure.

    Get rid of idoc's! No timers no loot, the house is deleted and that's it= no one to grief.

    Not a big deal... move on.
    I haven't played Ultima IV in well over a decade, it was a great game.

    You should do fel IDOCs that way you can just pk anyone you dont like, u know...kinda how it used to be before sissy tram? Man up sissy boy and stop whining. You cant have your cake and eat it too. Dont even bother tram IDOCs, they are down with the HIV/AIDS.
