    Everyone knows (and I would like people to vouch for others if possible) that in PVP, dropping an item (Weapon, Suit Piece, etc.) sucks. 90% of the time though, the other guild will return the item.

    With that being said; UHOH always returns items to people (expecially those who have returned items to us in the past, and if you have never had the chance, we give you the benefit of the doubt, and return them to you).

    Well, last night, Turles dropped his bow on his archer, and FOA kept it. While I am not 100% aware of the details (I wasn't on), I was told Equinox picked it up. Now, being a CO-GM (Or Emmy, whatever your guild calls them), I would expect you to try and CLEAN UP YOUR ACT FROM THE LAST TIME YOU KEPT ITEMS from our guild. Alas; they choose to keep the item, and so FOA will never get items back from UHOH (Aside from a few friends of friends in the guild).

    I just wanted people to know this, and wanted others to vouch for a guild (Or specific player(s)) that has/hasn't returned things so everyone on the shard is aware.

    That is all =]

    It is really annoying when people don't return items, I remember dropping my suit and cottoneye joe keeping it years ago, lucky another C was nice enough to suit me back up. I have Never understood the reason for keeping someone item(S)

    I make the guys in FPD give items back if I am on, unfortunately I am not always on and have heard of my guys keeping items in the past. I just see no point in keeping someones stuff, enemy or not.

    anyhow

    best of luck getting it back!

    With imbuing and faction arties, does it even matter? I'd like to see insurance removed!

    I completely agree with UHOHs choice.

    I remember when I think it was Radman? from X. His entire suit dropped with an orny and I returned it to him. Not many in !C! were happy with me but, I hate to ruin someones game play.

    Lynk, play on siege, no insurance there.

    There are two types of enemies, those that you fight but respect and those that you fight and don't respect. If you respect your enemy, give them their accidently uninsured items. If not, if you're a mortal enemy, give no mercy and take everything that you can get.

    S+S might not win all the time, but we'll at least make you gang up on us until you have more then people then we do...

    If anyone in FoA drops something...Ill just imbue them something better than what they dropped.

    For the record, I was not online when this happened.

    Thanks for the advice, if I want to spend 6 months building a mediocre character and then spend my time fighting stealth tamers i'll be sure to do that.

    is the above a definition of a troll? I'm being serious here as I am still unfamiliar with Board Warrior vernacular.

    That being said a testimonial. A guy in my guild FY was gate fighting UhOH 2 weeks back. He dropped his SC Kyrss. Lox returned said item and was stand up about it.

    since you asked.

    D. Trolling is prohibited.Trolling is whenever someone is clearly, deliberately posting in a manner for the purpose of angering and/or insulting the other participants of the board. Trolling DOES NOT encourage further discussion in the long run, it only encourages personal attacks (if left unchecked).


    thats from the govening body. So as to make sure that your not in question, i recomend next time you see a little box that says " i have read and understand" you check "no" and actually read it. before you check "yes"
    Did you really waste my time with that? It must be a holiday.

    Just trying to further your pursit of happiness. Take it or leave it, "I" will fight for it.

    Do people still PB their weapons and lose them on toggle? Haha

    Losing PBs definitely sucks, normal loot though sometimes it's hard to determine. Obviously when a guy drops his whole suit, best to give it back though, with everyone transferring and mistakes to be made.

    (Sorry to interrupt your returning items discussion.)

    Don't worry about whats a troll and whats not. Leave that to me. Continue with the topic that is being discussed. Thank you.

    Thanks Talbo, you always got my back.

    UHOH, as for as I have seen has an upstanding reputation and plays the game with honor. I would expect them to return items as said. I believe Uncle Talbot has had some experiences with them in that regard... However, if you come upon a guild who rez-kills you (MOB) after bringing reinforcements... why should you show any respect to those who actively disrespect you. I mean, come on. Rez-killing is low. Legal, but low.

    I believe that my boy Uncle Talbo lost a pair of brand new pants that I made for him to a MOB guy a few months ago.

    As for Promathia's comment about FOA... that just about verifies Bombastic Fail's original comment. Personally, I would like to see FOA as a whole display honor in their fighting techniques. Thought I have certainly seen FOA individuals display honor... I don't want to name them because they'd probably be ridiculed internally.

    That is all

    i agree with lynk, insurance isnt needed with faction items and imbuing, and no im not going to play siege because i want more than 1 character and i want to be able to recall instead of gating

    FOA is tactless and without any character or honor.. Everyone knows they are the trash of chessy so it does not surprise me. Everyone of us gives items back if dropped. Even though i can't stand turles speedy self, id still give it back to him :p, but don't hope from it back from that group of subpar 12 year olds
