OK, so we've been having a chat to some PvPers who were worried that PvP doesn't get a fair go on these boards. As a result, the moderators have agreed to allow this thread to be stickied so it can serve as the home for PvP talk on this board. Contrary to what many believe, we both understand that PvP is an important part of UO and we're willing to work with you guys as long as you are willing to work with us. We will allow smack talk (moreso than normal threads that would likely have been locked on the forum), however, please do not get carried away with it. Now, this thread is aimed to give the 'PvPers' who wish to discuss PvP topics and smack talk a place to do so. <blockquote><hr> DO NOT mention anything to do with hacking, third party software, accusations of people using them, exploits & scams. You will get a nice 24 hour ban from this forum if you want to try your luck. This is the only warning you will get. [/ QUOTE ] Examples on the Difference between <u>Personal Attacks</u> and <u>Game Smack Talk</u>:<ul>[*]<u>Personal Attacks</u>: Personal insults to get them annoyed and provoking them to attack you, such as "Your a fat housey"[*]<u>Game Smack Talk</u>: Smack talk is putting ones opinions out as to how bad they are and how they cannot pvp or duel; such as "Your shocking on a mage so you can only play overpowered templates."[/list](Thanks to Petrify for the original penning of these two examples.) <u>Please note</u>:<ul>[*]This is your place to talk about PvP. Any other threads started outside of this one will be Moderated as harshly as all other threads. Best thing is to keep all PvP talk in here.[*]Understand the difference between this thread and normal threads. Just cause you can talk smack in here, doesn't mean you can go to normal threads and do the same to non-PvPers there.[/list]<u>One last thing you should know about the forums here</u>:<ul>[*]If one post gets removed, ALL posts linked to that via replies will also get moved. This means you may come here to see your post removed when it was not offensive. This means you replied to a post that was removed and so yours went as well. Best bet? Reply to the original post (this one) so yours doesn't get accidentally removed as well.[/list] And lastly: If you can't handle the smack talk, don't come into this thread.
