    This morning I finally talk someone into playing UO. She goes to Luna to look for things to sell, things that are dropped. ( she already tried Haven and was doing escorts) She thinks she is doing well finding runes until this female character jumps her for doing this.

    And we wonder why not many new players, lol! So I go find this female and tell her. What is her reply? Heh! She starts calling me some other players name and insulting me. lol! I left. So much useless drama.

    She did ask me why I did not give the new player gold. Oh my gosh, because that would ruin it.

    Anyways Happy New Year's All. Even to that sour old player we met this morning! I doubt the new one will come back. She thought UO was creepy anyways, she is now convinced. :(

    I agree with you 100% here. I remember when I started people were really friendly. This was in 99 when the shards were actually heavily populated. I remember walking around Brit and people were just giving me the hookups. Nowadays you're trash if you are new to the game.

    She needs to get back in the game and not let one person or others ruin it for her. If everyone lets the little things in uo bother them no one would be playing at all. Best thing to do is let it go in one ear and out the other. Just laugh it off.
    Happy New Year !!!!!

    Well this is what happens when you let whiners win.... that and when you do nothing about cheaters, scammers and all sorts of other scum..... eventually most the decent folk get fed up and leave... so all you have left is a few die hards like myself and the scum.....

    I'm sorry your friend had a bad experience. Really there are several people in UO who are VERY nice..... they are just fewer and harder to find sometimes.... but we are out there.

    Ugh! Man, why do some folks have to be so mean?

    Cyrah, I am online most evenings with my archer (Goran) or pally (Baskum) and would be glad to help your friend out. I have tons of equipment that is perfect for someone just starting out. (gah I got clutter) And I would be glad to mark runes for her so she can get to places for training and shopping.

    Tell her to give it another try. In fact, there are some guilds like GOF that she could join. With experienced players around her she can get her questions answered and go places and hunt higher level spawn with less chance of being killed.

    Ok just thought I'd add my 2 cents.

    I dont know what frikkin UO you guys play but on my side its dog eat dog.

    I have been scammed more times than 50 cent has been shot at. Its been like this since 97 when lack of money was in game and 50k was alot of gold. I once payed 500k for a plot of sand in the desert... but its what makes the game fun. Why does everything have to be so bambi. So she got yelled at. I learned to pvp from a guy who easily killed me 500 times just to be a ass. I stuck with it and I got better. If she sticks with it she will do fine. If one person can change her mind she didnt like the game anyway.

    Spoken like a true moron. Ive been playing since 99 and many people have ATTEMPTED to scam me, but I was the smarter and avoided the scam everytime. Who gives two****s about how you grew up in the game? People shouldnt have to worry about getting harassed by others especially when they are wearing the "young" tag. Too bad you still cant play the game like you did back in 97 eh? Been some minor changes, mmm? If you dont know what Im going at then pm me.

    Wonder what she would have thought of the game before the tram/fel split..

    ..and meeting the Dread Lords waiting outside of the Brit roads waiting for people to come by to 'meet' them!

    lol No doubt. I died there the first time not even knowing what was going on. Then wandered around lost for what seemed like hours dead.

    Are you drunk? This is a game hoss. Despite how you think you play, you are one of the less honorable people in this game, on the field. This includes your media queen who should be posting soon to take up for you.

    I dont claim to be a saint, but I also dont drobe the trammies either. There is all kinds of trash in this game. If you dont understand what I am saying I will break out some crayons and color you a picture!!
