    I have HAD it with the 1% - hear me out!

    Ladies and gentlemen of the mediocre - band with me!
    We do not own Luna houses with vendors that make tons of gold every week. Most of us play the Classic Client. Why? Because we love UO, the OLD UO, and we strive for those days again. Because we're the pawns, the peasants, the few who stick to tradition and the things that make Ultima Online ULTIMA. We run shops outside of luna, we spam general chat, we make our gold through face to face interactions and fair prices!

    We are the 99%, my friends! The select few who control the event items and x-shard those rares have such a tight grip on the market that the little man who is looting gold off monsters cannot, and can never hope, to amass as much gold that is required to equip his account with proper equipment! (inflation is rampant, [fine blame the dupers, but you know what I'm talking about]).

    We are the 99%! We go out there and play in fel, when we can, and the fluff takes center stage. But our voice is seldom heard! We do not have titles like Royal Spymaster, or whatever, because some of us have to work for a living.

    Stand up with me, the mediocre! OCCUPY UO, OCCUPY LUNA. We are sick of the rich getting richer. The new players just simply get newer. The balance of the rich and poor must change!

    Perhaps instead, you could encourage everyone to start a brand new character and actively try to not get twinked by either their own characters or anyone else.

    Basically everyone starts over from scratch with a single character and plays the game.

    Hon, I've never had an issue with anyone who worked hard for what they have, in game or out. Please help keep UO free of class warfare (as much as possible). :eyes:

    Well, you could send a part of your RL paycheck to those japanese players farming stuff ingame 24/24 instead of working, I'm sure they will give you some uber stuff.

    Yeah UO is a worldwide game with people xferring stuff between shards where RL people have nothing in common, be it free time or cost of living, so in the end that DOES create bizarre ingame situations, but I hardly see what could possibly be done about it.

    Let's put it another way: if someone is using all his time to become the richest player in the game, would it be fair to remove that from him, considering it is basically all he has in life? Food for thought...

    Now of course all of this doesn't include anything exploit-related, which is another debate altogether...

    That beeing said, the EM event items are just deco anyway, so hardly creating unbalances for new or returning players.
