    Stephen,

    I know you are probably really regretting your statement about how things work in Fel. Big ouch!

    Here is the problem; You demonstrated to the entire UO Stratics population that the people responsible for correctly making changes / updates to the game do not have a valid grasp of how things really work across the different platforms on each shard in this game. This is something that has been bantered about for quite some time. You did, afterall, put things like Bestial suits in the game.

    You have gloriously confirmed everyone's suspicions. Be they right or wrong, doesn't matter. Your credibility as a developer for this game..well..to be honest..it's pretty well shot.

    You are highly unlikely to ever get it back. Gamers are a pretty unforgiving lot.

    Ok, so you screwed up. Extremely uncool but no big deal..everyone does. The measure of your character and professionalism will certainly be linked with your next move and words.

    On that point, I think it would go a very long way with this entire team's level of confidence from the player base, if you listened *this time* to your player base.

    #1. Implement these changes to the Tram ruleset only, if at all. They are the only ones who cried for it.

    #2. The Fel players have spoken, in a virtual unanimity and for very valid reasons, that this can never EVER hit the Fel facet.

    They, as I, now have absolutely no doubt that neither you or this team has a firm grasp on or are even able to conceptualize what this will cause across the champ spawns of Fel. As just a small hint; You would more than double the griefing factors of all champ spawns. There is so much more...

    This is one of those times where you need to step back, recoup yourself.... LISTEN... and then do what is right for the game and it's paying players. Believe me, what you are about to unleash is NOT that.

    Fail to do so...you should either resign or be fired. One of the two.

    Playing Fel (and ONLY Fel) since 09/1997

    P.S. If you REALLY want to regain respect, get rid of those disgusting Bestial suits in Fel as well. Your Fel base BEGGED you not to let it in. Stand up..

    These are your opinions and should taken as such. I disagree with most every thing you posted. That is my opinion. Bleak's credibility is fine in my opinion. I am not sure your opinion or mine amounts to a hill of beans as far as how Bleak goes about his business of making this game.

    Again, your entire post is just your opinion and as wrong as it is, you are allowed to have one.

    It is just one player's rant. *shrugs* The DEVs are pretty thick skinned for the most part and get these rants all the time. Many players feel they know the best direction for the game and the majority of players and the DEVs are wrong.

    I don't know about a lock as yet... I do bet it hits Spiels and rants before long.

    Actually I think giving healers credit is a fine move, it's obviously one that's been asked for in many MMO's.

    Not giving them credit is like not thanking a doctor who saves your life after a heart attack..

    It seems one of the concerns are griefers coming in and just casting a heal to get credit for scroll drops... which if I'm understanding that correctly I can kinda understand their concerns... course I don't pvp, don't do spawns, and can honestly say have not hunted in a group for over a year now so take my opinion with a grain of salt please.

    I appreciate your opinions.

    But...unless you live, breath, craft, pvp, champ spawn...etc, etc...in Fel, your opinion is neither valid nor (no offence intended) warranted in this letter.

    This is a Fel based player only matter.

    Do as you please with Trammel. Nothing being said here concerns Trammel residents.

    *blinks* Trammel? This thread is redundant as well as rude. Closed.
