    I doubt it, they will just adjust like everyone else does. At least they can't show up with unlimited WW or Dragons like they used to be have. Imagine 6 greaters!

    If this patch goes through like it's supposed to, the stealth/petball templates will be totally nerfed (which is good). A spellcasting timer on summoning that reveals the tamer, plus it can be disrupted!

    My tamer will still be alright, riding around with a cu or mare/bug combo. But at least it will prevent the templates like deadpool from offscreening when they are low and being able to summon the beetle 50 times while running.

    Here is the downside. I have 2 bonded Swampies stabled on every one of my chars. If I get dmounted I chain teleport for 3 seconds, and then I petball and mount and get away. You almost need to do this in the field with the amount of stealth archers nowadays. That escape tactic won't be nearly as effective now.

    Even with that downside, I'm excited to see this patch go through.

    A good solution for this would be to relate the spell casting delay directly to the amount of follower slots. Example, super drag that takes 5 slots would take 3 full seconds, mare would take 1 or 2 seconds, a standard 1 follower slot mount .5 seconds. Maybe not those figures, but something along those lines.

    Easy with your classification i bet there are several pwnt who could hand you your ass on a mage, and id be willing to bet im one of them.
    So if you get killed in a mage duel by a no skilled punk what does that make you?

    Thalidar1984 Guest

    Lol if u ask most people they would say im pretty decent mage.. Ya ive dueled spitfire, when he had dp and smoked him but whos to say i couldnt beat ya in a mage field fight [​IMG]. I dont duel no more but im more then willing to do a field fight at your leisure [​IMG]. Although I did duel another one of your mages and beat them too.. hmm I think the only decent one is huggy but thatd be about it.
     
  9. Shall i log in and kill you? If i beat you on a gimplate like an archer you are NOT a good mage. I have repeatedly stated that GOOD mages can smoke me. You Thal have never ever even come close to beating me. Whats that make you?

    What this means, is that he will be happy to run off screen, precast strangle, come back and combo, when strangle wears off, he will only run back off screen to repeat. (Which could classify him as a no skilled pump chump as well)

    He dont duel anymore, but he did duel another one of "our" mages and beat them too.

    Do you or dont you duel? make up your mind?

    The tameing thing has no factor on me personally, The highest amount of taming I have on any char on my account is 0.

    I would be willing to bet there are at least 5 mages that will handle you in PwNt.

    Therefore if you classify yourself as decent you would have to list 5 of our guys, if you dont classify yourself as decent, I will let you belive that huggy is the only decent mage in PwNt

    You are correct in stating huggy is a good mage though.

  21. I will be on a pure mage, the least gimp of any template. Time and Place? I will not be off of work today until 5pm central time, and would at least like to go out on the town for a bit tonight, to at least hit up the happy hours. I shouldn't have a problem anytime this weekend after 10ish pm tonight.

    Since your guarantee that your gonna beat me wanna put a little bit of gold on it? I will put up about 3 mil for this instance in a best out of 5 as long as your bringing your what you might call a "mage" (I refer to them as "necros") I'm not putting that up for a noxxer or an archer.

    This is [censored]!!! My mage eats archers for lunch!!! except solarskyjacker for some reason!!! that doesnt make me a good mage, in fACT i suck on a mage!!!
    but the few times i have fought you all you can do is run away red lined. My mage can take on three archers at a time but i cant win against one decent mage!! So your arguement that a good mage can beat you is wrong!!!! The mages that beat you have wrestling, parry and high dci thats all!! those type of mages are good against dexxers but lack against good mages!!!
     
  23. I dont have parry :p

    To everyone else: Your grammar/spelling doesn't need to be perfect - we all make mistakes. But maybe you all could read your post prior to hitting continue, just to make sure it makes sense in some way, shape, or form. I have read 4 posts on this thread that make my head hurt.

    First time I saw Thalidor that I know of was last night, and I killed him one on one, only a ghost was on screen other then us. It was a close fight, but you have to realise G-zus has one of the worst temps in the game.

    FYI i am not sunchicken, sunchicken is Mr Miagi, I am The Instager, No sir I did not loose to link and I am still willing to put up my 3 mil for the fight if you dont want to put the money in it I will still fight you in the "field duel" but if you dont want to do the money that also means you dont exactly "garentee" your victory either.

    None the less, I asked you a time and place,

    What will PwNt do after this? The same thing we've done after every other ignorant change that has been made, adapt.

    People pick out PwNt for all their whines... glad we have dominated your attention.

    So I assume (and we know where that gets one) the bugs people are abusing regarding pets will be fixed. The speedhackers and cheaters will be punished properly. The peacers and discorders will go gray to their victims as they should. I assume the hide / stealth archer's overpowered bows will be toned down. Necros will be toned down?

    You guys crack me up, whine whine whine. There is nothing PwNt has done that will ever be ok by the general UO public and you know what, we could care less. We fight with no hacks or cheats, we adapt to templates to compete with the ones that are cheating. We fight outnumbered constantly. We listen to your constant crying. Its sickening, why don't you try shutting your faces and fight. Proof is in the bank boxes and I guarentee you very few PwNt has to ever put gold into their pvp bank boxes because despite the ignorant goals other players and the devs put before us, we win. Sure we don't win every battle but the second the other player opens their little unmentionable icons, well, we won on principle alone.

    Instead of fixing things that aren't broke and listening to the continual whining of people that can't adapt, or giving us more incredibly useless deco, how about some real pvp fixes. Perhaps ones that could save the game? It seems to me to keep that bottom line at some minimal profit level the very rules we abide by and was set forth by EA are being broken by EA themselves. No wonder there are so many dropping this game. It is sad really because this is still with all of its faults the best pvp game out.

    I place dolalrs to dimes that PWNT did not become a guild of tamers, but rather only the tamers are left. I doubt most of them log in anymore. I can't confirm or deny that because my account will never be active again, I do play a bit of freeshard once in a blue moon. Even that is rare.
     
  36. Its been three months since i played for more than 30 mins. This game is horrible now shadow. My account is now inactive ill pay it every 2.5 months just so I can keep my keep in hopes that they may fix it.

    I will agree, petball nerf is needed.

    There is also a need for a necro fix that they just buffed up (somewhat), and then an archer nerf, and a minor tweak for the leathel noxers.

    Whenever that is all said and done, it might be uo again, but I bet they screw up things more before they fix the other stuff mentioned.

    Coming from you thats rich. The only ones who seem to think tamers are overpowered are people without tamers. See, that skill takes actual work, actual AT THE KEYBOARD work. So the goal would be to take tamers out of pvp. What about those 35pt running shots? Continuous mortal? Lets not forget that strangle needed that extra second it was given, like it wasn't already overpowered. Given the fact theres 50 hide / stealth archers waiting at any given moment to dismount you and treat you as a large pincushion, I would thing one or two animals wouldn't be that rough. Lets not forget the animals have been nerfed to death already, but hey, whats one more nerf.
    So with what they are planning, a tamer summons their animal with the pet ball but can be interrupted (go strangle!) IF the tamer is hidden they are instantly revealed while waiting for the pet... which now will have a delay. Whats the chances the tamer will win the fight defensless? Good job. Soooo ....
    what shall the other templates get? Nothing. Again, good job.
    Is it any wonder so many are going to WoW?
    I agree with Black Betty, try fixing whats broke not breaking what was fine.

    Spoken like a true D-bag. I actually have a dismount archer/tamer that I use for PvP - and yes it does need fixing. Don't give me that "it takes actual work" crap, you can get an advance token and a decent ring to hit gm taming.

    And a tamer won't be defenseless, they just cant run and petball every 2 seconds or every screen they run. Maybe they should walk around with their pet, and not wait for someone to flag to use it. If you honestly feel that tamers weren't overpowered then you should take a long walk off of a short pier.

    35 pt running shots - only from a hvy xbow and even with a 40 SSI bow and a lot of stam they are still slow as hell. If you cant heal through that then you deserve to get owned by it.

    Animals nerfed to death??? really??? I guess I must have been high when I saw an 80 dmg firebreath from a dragon.

    I wish you would follow your friends and go to WOW. Don't respond to my posts with this kind of crap. Your opinions are not needed/wanted.
