    Some people were really awful. This is why we can't have nice events.

    I think most of what I posted is devoid of any noticeable slander or problems, it was a good event all things considered, an amazing showing.

    Word.
    they spoke alot of jail and what not long ago.
    Never happened that i see.
    I just hope the events continue at a rapid place. and eventually the people spamming this event sucks. will realize they dont want to be there. and stop coming.

    There were a couple of really annoying folks in the crowed. At least the official guild representatives - UWF, HOT, LLTS, MTC - appeared to be civil.

    I told our UWFers that if any of them taunted or responded to taunts, they'd deal with me, hehe. But honestly, I was proud to be with them (as usual).

    JC, HOT's entrance was spot on and the uniforms looks awesome. Very classy. :-D

    If they gave EMs the power to squelch then it wouldn't be an issue. I don't know why they haven't done so. You can't have an event like this without being able to silence all unnecessary participants.

    In party chat, the EMs mentioned that they did not want to clamp down on grievers/dissenters because, in their words, "These aren't the times of Casca." I think that they don't want to appear heavy handed.

    As much as that Meeker guy (and others) annoy me, I appreciate their sentiments and professionalism.

    Excellent Job Nh'bdy....

    The pictures are really nice to see. I arrived a bit late and only saw what I can honestly say was some of the worst behavior I've ever seen at an event and my pictures I would not show the world.

    Congratulations to all the Escort Guilds. You all looked real nice and you represented us well. Reminded me of the old days. Good Job.

    I know the EM's don't wish to be heavy handed but some small threat carried out to those who disrupt would go a long way to cleaning up the crowd.

    "These aren't the times of Casca."

    Haha, that actually made me laugh.

    A very clever but poor excuse.

    :drool:

    That was hot... I wonder why still noone listens to me, I can answer all the questions that go unanswered such as squelch rights, and a simple GM assisting the events.

    GAME-MASTER ? Since when they became pure technical support ? I can hear those questions in all your heads, 24-7, sometimes it makes me cry...

    Wait I think I already have answered those questions !

    Maybe I didn't do it well however... I'm not perfect !

    Hmm, I don't think this is fair. As hard as they work on these events, I highly doubt that they enjoy having hecklers. I can buy the argument that the devs haven't given them enough silencing authority, but to imply they they're looking for excuses not to quell dissent goes too far, I think.

    He extrapolated meaning from the EM's remarks. I disagreed. Fortunately, we are among friends here. :thumbsup:

    Did you notice the green-red-blue pattern coming up again ?

    I think this is fabulous... too bad I can't take part of it anymore. I hope you guys achieve prosperity of playing freedom.

    The screen shots look absolutely wonderful. I would like to congratulate UWF, HOT, MTC, and LLTS for putting such a great effort and displaying the spirit of Ultima Online.

    Something I don't think has been touched on yet, I actually really liked the Gargish Queen's Setup. The gold actually looked fairly nice.

    Yes, she looks way hotter than our queen in my opinion. Sorry Dawn

    Here are the videos of the event.

    Part 1 - March to the Castle
    Part 2 - Opening the Moongate

    They obviously aren't looking for excuses to not quell the hecklers, DUH!

    I meant it's a poor excuse for not having a system in place, even though they kept the comment in line with the "plot" of the game. I don't care if it is a GM's fault, EA's fault, or theirs. There is a system to quiet the audience, it has been implemented before, so any "exuse" not to use it on EM events is poor.

    Ah, ok. Sorry for misrepresenting your point - I misunderstood.

    Yes, it would certainly be nice have something in place. Last night was grieved pretty heavily.

    There was a time when such people would have been jailed for a week... when they didn't care to lose a subscriber or two ! oh so ironic...

    I don't think it has anything to do with the specific program. I encode in the highest quality H.264 format available (best quality, multi-pass). Youtube has also great quality now for HD video.

    I use Camtasia Screen Recorder to capture the video.
