    E-7 and SE-3 Right across the road from each other.

    E-7 is between Chapel and Garden, and is up for sale to the highest bidder... I reserve the right to decline a sale if the bid is too low.

    Ready?

    Go!

    Congratulations to the winners and condolences to the folks who really wanted a plot and didn't win. Not having bid on anything, I was of course not greeted by a gump.

    Wonder what's gonna happen to the poor folk on other shards whose ticket doesn't show a shard name but instead shows some weird "area 51" or "area 47" notation or how someone's gonna explain how some people won a ticket for a facet where they didn't buy one. Hope that doesn't happen on Siege.

    *Imagines the surprise on someone's face when they log in and see a gump showing they won a plot in Trammel on Siege.*

    *sigh*

    I didn't win any of em..anywhere. I was interested to hopefully win those closer to the one garden area, the N 1-3 plots or the C's or possibly for my Hughes, the ne coastline ones but .......4 accts. of tickets and won nothing nowhere.

    I am depressed...took my plants that matured, off the island, and took them home with me since I won't be no gardener house there, to replant the island, since I didn't win one for Miranda, nor for any of my chrs.@!

    And I blew enough gp tryin to win, didn't so I do not plan to get in some bidding war over buyin plots ... let the billionares own em all. :( BAH !

    So I am now gonna go HERMIT, introvert, no one will even find me, and go move to live where the po' depressed peeps, go live and probably fish from a shack on bucs den or somewhere, if even a 7x7 fits on serverline HELL !

    *crys*

    I won SW-2 and SW-3. Lucky me that they are side by side :)
    And no, I don't sell it.

    Btw, was there a post count reset? A few months ago I had 1.000+ posts and now it's down to 249? Strange thing.

    Am I the only one that finds it odd that some people won 2 plots while others won nothing? Not just that but the ones that won multiple plots have their plots very close to each other. Coming from someone who plays a lot of online poker, sounds like a funky RNG to me!

    Thats the beauty of randomness. Its a cruel mistress. If you can play the odds, with enough money, then you can make that mistress less cruel :D

    And I play alot of online poker to, which actually makes me less surprised people are winning multiple plots.

    I have used ~2 million gcs and I used them all on the western plots.
    Some things look strange, indeed, but I don't know if the system really is bugged or if it's just luck. And I don't know if everything what people post in the forum is really true. So nobody really knows.
    Is there any infos from the devs yet if all went fine with the lottery?

    It makes me less surprised too because I am used to a bugged RNG. Not saying that's what happened here, just extremely odd that multiple people won multiple plots that were adjacent, or very close to each other, that's all. Odd "anomaly".

    I think it is quite probably that certain people buried an awful lot of money into just 2-3 plots close to one another.

    Aye... I won one 10k ticket house, which just so happened to be next to the 2k ticket house I dumped a bunch of money on.

    I waited until the final hours, and dumped more money on the location that had the least amount of sales, thereby increasing my odds.

    Sorry, if it walks like a duck and quacks like a duck, it's usually a duck.

    Who are you...the house police?

    People can and will do whatever they want.

    Also please note that I did not attempt to win a spot on Siege.

    If you don't want to take part in something and/or don't agree with it then simply ignore it.

    No need to kill a thread.

    Bucs Den never really had good plots for houses... Now, between Minoc and Vesper upon the road there are many plots for such lonely people. Yeah, even North of my tomblike house are good fishing spots where you can place a ship and sail forth. Oh, there is one serverline close to the East bridge of Minoc. If I am a hermit, and it does seem to fit me, try not placing too close.
    *smiles* Yeah, I would not buy a plot from Nightstalker. I never tried to buy a ticket... just was not interested in Magincia.

    I hope the lotto was worth the effort. Make the best of these houses...oh... and...

    please finish building soon, The Census is coming...

    Aye Bucs Den never really had room for more than tiny homes, but I am often ON Bucs Den simply cuz I like it a lot, also.

    I have often been fond though of island homes islands with somewhat of a town on em like Serp Hold or Ocllo etc.
    thus a New Magincia plots appealed to me to try to win a plot,
    but to win mostly, just to go fishin, but [not] cuz I wanted vendors there
    per say, nor because it became,
    an all new Guard Zoned island.

    Normally I have 2-3 homes here, and 1 mostly for storages, there,
    or 2 and 2 per shard, on my 4 active UO accts.

    I even bought a lot of tickets fel side Ches. which originally I had no intentions of buyin said tickets cuz SIEGE is all felucca.
    But most of the plots I had wanted [here or there] on New Magincia
    seemed to have so many tickets bought, per plot.

    So you would think, slappin lots of tickets on the nearly
    felucca ignored plots there, with only 90 or less tickets bought on a few plots,
    would garner me, at least ONE, won, plot even, but nooooooooo !
    The ol' RNG was not on my side.

    When ya do your next census, my 2 Siege homes,
    atm are now on the lakefront @ Gravewater Lake.

    The other morning, depressed at losing the lotto,
    I [comically] yelled, in game chat...

    "SHUN THE NON BELIEVERS !!
    If ya need my heavy powder charges RISK buyin em way out here,
    or just do without or go buy em in New Magincia.
    This is Siege, some of us, live FAR from Guard Zones.
    The GZ it is NOT', why I even wanted to win, a plot, on New Magincia."

    The eavesdroppers reading, in game chat flooded,
    my new front yards the other morning after I said:
    SHUN THE NON BELIEVERS etc.

    COM was attackin MINAX in my new yard, oh the violence.
    And some stalkin thief come by also, and ripped off a white pearl
    my guild mate had just fished up, off my new porch, in Gravewater Lake,
    too just then.
    None of us was hidden out there, cept for the unseen the stalkin stealthin, Siege thief and even he showed him self after abscoundin' the white pearl. :)

    My new Siege front yards suddenly, had become, utter violence, thievery,
    and mayhem !! * I even had a cross dressin Lord, out there in a dress* lol

    My depressed mood at losing the lotto, became rapidly & vastly improved.

    I was feeling all kinds of warm and fuzzy inside, again !!! :) LOL:thumbsup:
