    But if an admin can sticky it, it probably should be until the voting period is over...just sayin...la

    Haha...ok really? I could care less if I win, its just a fun little competition...no hard feelings. However, when someone's about to win with a crappy artifact...that's just rediculous. Rico I have the sneaking suspision you are hiring people to vote for you, or if not, then it's your little followers voting for you.

    You should be in third place, no question. I sold that kryss for 75mil, jaana's staff is what, a few 100k? If anything that EM sash could even win.

    This is a little rediculous. Regardless of whether or not you like the person, you're voting on the items. If rico stole a ruined painting or something like that, I'd vote for him even though I despise him. If you're going to ruin the votes then don't vote I guess is what I'm saying. Either way, congrats I guess rico. If I wanted to I could get the 70 thieves in my guild to vote for me but I'm not doing that because it'd be lame.

    Let's keep it fair guys.

    P.S. I'm probably not going to be entering any steals for a while. My computer is shot it seems. I can't get on the internet no matter what I do. It's my computer because the internet works on my roommates' computers and my xbox. So I need to get it fixed before I can get on uo again.

    ROFL at your accusation, and it's "couldn't care less".

    By the by, that sword might fetch 100k on Siege, just because inflation is nuts on the production shards shouldn't penalize me...la

    Lol rico, I honestly could not care less. It's just a fun little competition. All I'm saying is that it's lame if you are telling people to vote for you. Regardless if it's 100k on siege, the kryss is better and you know it. So feel free to take this as a win since it means so much to you lol. It's just a little pathetic is all I'm saying, but it doesn't surprise me in the least.

    Let us be honest here.....if you can honestly say that your steal is better then both:

    1. An event item sash that indeed earned me a friendship with a person that just transfered from Chesapeake who then later helped me establish a thief on that shard.

    2. Quite possibly the best PvP kryss steal (or even weapon steal) i've ever seen.



    If people actually in fact "agree" with this, I want to see the logic. People should have to post their response as well on why they agree that the steal they voted for is in fact the best.


    Somehow, I think we have a bit of fraud on our hands.....doesn't surprize either.

    What record is that?...la
     
  12. And the cry babies start boo-hooing again.

    I thought the whole point of having a poll was have people decide what THEY think is the best steal. It would make sense that you guys would somehow be able to find fault with that. Why not make it "Self-proclaimed best st33l in UO evar!" instead of allowing people to vote on what they think is the "Theft of the Month"?

    Take your trolling antics elsewhere.

    Lol green...did you or did you not vote for rico out of spite for me and ged...thank you.

    Lol green...did you or did you not vote for rico out of spite for me and ged...thank you.

    Also, don't talk to us about trolling. First of all, me and GED are part of the poll...so our input is valid. You however don't play UO anymore. You still troll these forums years later. So you can't call anyone a troll because it's all you are now in terms of this game.

    Btw, you shouldn't be allowed to vote because you don't know what items are good and what are bad...because you DON'T PLAY.

    Sorry ricco but you should not have even voted for yourself its for the best steal not the most arrogant and that kryss is uber. how anyone would vote for the junk you stole ricco is beyond me. Now that em sash or the kryss is top notch theft!!

    But the truth is the best ones are not even on this board they seem to think the best thief is one shrouded in the shadows not glory seeking hogs such as you guys you earn your reputation and lower your chances of success by showing the community who to watch out for.

    Sorry guys but your all frauds as thieves a good one knows when to keep there yap shut.:yell: keep it up and you will keep finding it harder and harder to snag anything good.

    Matter of opinion...and I'm pretty sure no one is looking for glory here if you read the posts....looking for the best steal....and we know Rico's isn't.

    I agree with you 100%. However, I see certain thieves on here who think they own this forum. When a new thief asks for help and god-forbid mispells the word "thief", instead of helping him they drive him away by bashing his grammar. Someone has to shut newbs like this up.

    Also, lots of people (including thieves on this forum) believe that the thief is a dead class. I've set out to prove them wrong. Plus, if worst comes to worst, I can use a name change token...or a disguise kit, even though I hate them.

    But yes...thieves like rico are known only because they post on every topic possible on these forums. If not for his posting, no one would know who the hell he is lol.

    But for real, good job staying quiet...it's definetly for the best.

    Roflcopters. I'll keep waiting to find it harder to get steals. The funny part is I have been playing UO as a thief for over 6 years. I have posted on various boards with this same name for even longer. Do people know I'm a thief? Sure they do...ever heard of the skill "stealth"? I use it all the time. It's hard for the marks to run from me if they can't even see that I'm in the area.

    Maybe some day I'll find it harder to steal items...but as long as I'm playing, I doubt it. The ability to use soulstones has definately allowed me to adapt from time to time. If I notice players running around with good unblessed weapons in their hands...I throw on wrestling. If I notice more and more players with hiding in their templates, I use my detect and tracking skills to find marks. You won't find me trying to trick another player into coming into the safety of my house, or infiltrating guilds so I can steal from guildmates...I prefer to play in the field...I prefer my mark to have a chance to recapture their loot...and most of all you won't find me stealing items for the sole purpose of making some gold. The new breed of thieves are pathetic for the most part, especially those who can't take the time to learn how to spell our profession...la

    Rico rico rico. You apparently weren't always like this. Look what i found on the hot boards:

    When asked why a tailor was invited into S|S, then robbed, rico responds with:

    "LOL, I was wondering how that person got in the guild, *laughs*...yeah, you see I love going around and guilding non-guilded peeps, especially at the WBB. I am a thief, as a thief, it is my job to steal. When you ****men run around with all your stuff insured or blessed, that doesn't leave a whole lot left for us to steal. So, I have adapted, I have found other ways to get good items again. People are warned before they enter the guild, but yes, the primary purpose of the invite is so I have a few more marks.

    I have gotten some nifty items playing like this, and I have been ganked once too, (it's part of the game). If someone wants to remain in the comfort of their warm little trammel surroundings, they do not have to join the guild, it's not like anyone is forcing them to accept the invite.

    I also war guilds to get more marks, it's what we do, I am sorry if this type of play hurt your feelings, but honestly, I don't care, your love of insurance has and will keep my profession looking for alternate means of excitement. There are only so many times in an evening that it's any fun to steal someones garlic or bandaids."

    http://www.hot-guild.com/Forum/viewtopic.php?f=1&t=2259&p=29560

    I saw this post a while back on the hot boards, and when i saw what you said up there, i decided to dig it back up. After saying something like this, you should understand that all we are doing is adapting. That last paragraph even agrees with my signature. And you contradict yourself here by saying that "there are so many times in the evening that it's any fun to steal someone's garlic or bandaids." That means that you do care about the value of the items.

    Have you decided to completely disregard all of your old beliefs and pretend that you have thought like this the entire time you've played uo? You're apparently just a hypocrite rico, and a sad one at that.

    P.S. "I am a thief, as a thief, it is my job to steal." "So, I have adapted, I have found other ways to get good items again." Rico, this sounds a lot like things i say on a regular basis. Gasp, is it possible...that you used to be just like me?!

    Who's with Rico?!!

    http://www.guildportal.com/Guild.aspx?GuildID=61872&TabID=537756


    Looks like you have a lot of support from your guild....oh wait


    Don't knock different methods of stealing items when I'm on a PRODUCTION shard with INSURANCE...some of us actually try to keep this class alive as opposed to running to Siege like yourself, Rico. No one hear talks about your "method" and preferences in regards to how you steal items. I just to prefer to steal things that are worth my time.


    And as a side note -- don't be upset that some of us steal items that yield us a profit...and sorry you don't know what it is like

    Since this poll was inconclusive and doubts were cast on it's validity, I've posted a re-run with visible voting (and more choices) I hope this decision meets with your approval.
