    On shards with less population then others , it's irritating to see everybody joining the same faction of the most skillfull guild. Same faction to get loads of advantages. It's just stupid.
    If you are in faction and you have been killed by a same faction player but of different guilds put a 5 minute stat loss timer and lose points as always.

    Also Faction fights should be allowed in Trammel, you can't have the advantages of faction items and being in trammel the whole day, it's not correct, you want those advantages , you need to fight for them. Reds should be allowed in trammel .

    We don't like carebear games.

    Supposedly this "most skillful guild" doesn't use any tamers and cheats?
     
  3. If you look at the Ask the Devs thread on the top of the UHall page, they are looking at revamping the faction system.
    They dont say if they are looking at adding something for same faction kills, but maybe you could post the question and see if we could get an answer. :)

    Don't really see any relevance in your post... anyways.

    I agree with the OP. If you want the advantages of being a faction member. You should have to work for it. Bring back faction battles to trammel!

    Hunt these faction leeches down!

    I hope I don't get banned for this but here goes..

    There's a guild on Europa which is known very well to use that 3rd party program and speedhack. Lately some people have left their factions and joined this cheating guild's faction to prevent their pets from being able to attack them and to avoid getting statted by speedhackers.

    Now the cheater guild is using a glitch which allows you to be in multiple different factions on the same account on the same shard. I think one or two of them actually have a 2nd account for cross-faction purposes, but the majority is using a glitch.

    So that's basically the story behind this.

    Stop whining and go play on Siege!
     
  7. Factions in trammel, it's a good thing.

    I agree with OP, faction items should require constant risk, not just "I honor thee", a little bit of pvp, vendor buy some silver, then get much better items then you could ever craft or hunt for just so they can troll doom and the peerless.

    Just saying.

    I understand you concerns, but on the other hand, faction would be as dead as they were before the artis, if they returned faction fighting to trammel.

    I think most problems would be solved if you couldn't transfer kill points from one char to another.

    When UO:R launched there was still C/O wars. It was quite fun being able to fight in tram as well as fel. Many PvMers and new players at the time seen PvP first hand and many joined showing them another aspect of the game. So yes I think factions should be allowed in Tram based facets, after all it is Consented fighting.

    Faction Arties should be dropped to your back back when entering tram. No fighting in tram please! As factions do not exsist in tram so the arties should not be usable in tram.

    As for guilds jumping around factions to avoid stat loss, maybe you should stop the cheeting to put them into stat loss in the first place. Then they may not have to join COM. Just a thought!

    Edit: If your not happy playing our care bear game, go play some other game. I am sure you wont be missed

    Who's to say this is "your" carebear game. Do u recall the original intent of this game? (no trammel) Maybe you should sit down and shut up before you stake claim to something that isn't yours by any means. I agree with OP, faction tram fights would be fun. Carebears wouldnt need to worry b/c they arent factions anyways, correct?

    I don't give a crap if same faction puts you to stats or not... Thou factions are supposed to be factions against factions and not just every guild for themself like it's often now.

    Faction fights in trammel? I could go for that, would solve the factionarti problem.

    But if EA wants to enhance the PvP experience for players they should fix the cheats. I can totally see why new players are not coming into PvP... There is nothing more annoying in PvP then getting killed by speedhacking archer/archers/anydexer.

    And ofc. then there's the players who use other 3rd party programs too for pots, bandies, trapbox etc.

    Speedhacking archer with pot,bandie, trapbox script... Yeah true skill PvP FTW.

    I would love to see new people in PvP, but I honestly understand why they don't come. And I understand that people don't want to get put to stats by speedhackers either and change factions, even thou I wouldnt do it myself.

    Faction Items should revert to normal arties in Tram. Reds shouldnt be allowed in Tram thats one of the punishments for going Red.

    What they outta do is leave factions the way it is and start C/O over again. Have some items for being in one of those and allow them in Tram like the good old days. Then if you want the faction items and the items from C/O you risk being in Tram instead of hiding there.
