but I really dont care what others do in this game as long as it doesnt have an adverse effect on my gameplay. They can script skills, farm resources, and farm bods till the cows come home. However the moment my gameplay is fooked due to other players I will indeed speak my mind. First off, I am a pvper that enjoys some pvm. I dont use scripts in PvP, I dont run this god awful speed enhancement, and I dont use bugs.(some idiots call them features) I have come to the conclusion that without these things all the skill in the world will do you little good. Why? My connection is great...a 30 ping and enough up/down bandwidth to make lag a thing of the past. However when faced with this latest line of adversaries using the latest tweaks, my forward movement and even spell casting can be slowed, or even at some points called to a halt. If you cant move in this pvp environment then death is immiment. Lets throw the arguement out that these roids are client side only in effect can we? If this only effected the client my char wouldnt end up three tiles out of sync, dead, and lagged out due to the nonsense. Besides the steroids we have the scripters. (not farmers mind you) The ones who run around with an autopilot of sorts, using 3rd party scripts to do everything from heal them to wipe thier revesre pixels. Now lets not say LIES!!! because you all know its fact. Last night I had some bigwig VIP moron chasing me on his dog, only to falter when I started casting. The guy still ran, but he didnt heal...cure...or remove curse. (like normal) He went down like a running ton of bricks, and low and behold...his bandies were present on his body. After his death I soon found out his heal script *crashed*...the guy called foul, and quickly rebooted his script to wtf pwn me in under 5 seconds. Interesting. (To my fans...this is the type of scripting that actually has an impact on the game) Lets not forget about the bugs!!! For instance the one used by dexers to allow them to use the special from their previous weapon. Or how about the bug that allows the char to forgo the special penalty? Literally making it possible to do 10 AI + in a row!!! Both of these have been around for going on a year, yet neither of them have even been fixed. How about the bug that flags you grey against your attacker even though you didnt attack!? (two years and STILL NO FIX!)Both are gamestopping for sure! Its about time the developers took a good look at these issues and came up with a proper fix. We heard of PB...this was canned when a certain producer told us EA would be implementing thier own aniti cheat into the game. Where is it? We are two years from this statement and its no where in sight devs! And Sakarrah...you fought aginst these same things for years and years girl (vs defunct yet renamed VIP), of anyone you should definetely be able to provide influence on these problems and thier solutions. Daily now I see at least one person leave the game, most times more than one. They are leaving becuase these issues keep taking the backburner to eyecandy and event content. Someone really needs to take thier head out of thier ass and rethink the whole process of UO if you want it to succeed. It has come to the point I have to decide one of two things...cheat or quit? No flames necessary...if you dont play fel you are clueless to my rant.
