    What can we players do to make Siege fun again? Some things touched in Kelmo's thread....lets flesh some of this out.

    -being visible: stop stealthing, look for common time zones for play, public houses

    -player communities: combining?, commerce between?, wars between? (crafters warring each other with skillets? vendor price wars? running with scissors! Yeah I need sleep...)

    -player events: object fortress siege?, battle lizard fights? planned situation just waiting to be raided?

    What do ya think?

    Someone could take the heat and post about the Siege meet-and-greet this Saturday on UHall. :scholar:

    Be prepared to spend half of the posts trying to get things back on topic, it will be derailed after 2 replies.

    yeah I don't really have the patience for UHall right now.

    prolly the best way to do it is to put everything you need it to say in the title itself.

    1. Support new players. If you see someone running around in a robe, wizard hat, with a spellbook with 15 spells, you know they're brand new character. Say hi, welcome to Siege, and ask if they have any questions.

    2. Be visible, interact! Even if it's interacting with Corp Por.

    3. There are many people here who try and run events for the betterment of the shard, support the events even if you don't like the people. The turnout has been abysmal for player run events. I gave up on Story Night because the last Story Night had 3 participants. Sweeny tried to get a bagball league going which no one supported, my guess being that there are those that don't like Sweeny. The Introduction to Siege event that Hoffs ran had 4 non GIL members show up. Speedy is trying hard for ideas with his event but I'm not seeing enough support.

    The problem is that no event can cater to everyone, so someone says their holding mage duels and the warriors complain, well what about us warriors? Sweeny puts on a bagball league that people don't participate in because they don't like bagball. So we end up having no events put on. I'd rather we have some events run by people we don't like that cater to some but not all character templates than none at all.

    From my perspective just settling on a common bank would go a long way. Britain is a ghost town. Luna is less empty but..pretty empty.

    Moonglow is a great bank. Space to Pvp, an entertaining run from the Moongate, and most services available. Luna is too convenient it's like a drive through.

    Another thing would be just having a pure pvp area that people agree on - Bucs Den? One of the Islands? When I was pvping a lot it was a drag running all over looking for trouble.

    My two GP.

    Bucs Den would be nice for PvP if those damn server lines weren't there messing it up. Those and all the little sticks on the ground that your horse cant walk over! You get stuck trying to manuver.

    The Stable Bank guy in front of Wrong Dungeon would be good for PvP, but mainly anywhere there are red healers, because waiting 2 minutes to go through a gate to rez is lame.

    I propose East Brit Bank, good for banking, far enough away from TB Base to remove thier advantages, and close enough to red healers in the woods and NEW Guildhouse for NEW to see the action.

    No sweat.. I figured a Siege titled thread would be insta-trolled. But if this event became a true "get-together" for people maybe they'd be more inclined to come.

    That and I had a line that busted me up every time.. I just had to use.
    And FYI.. I do have some pumpkins to give out. :eyes:

    Hi. I made a crafter on Siege yesterday. I even put hiding and spel resist on my template because I have fond memories of being Corp Por'd and someone asking protection money.

    I didn't see a single person. Should I go out to find a red and tell him I'm going mining? I think Siege is just too empty for this to be fun for me.

    It looks like you guys are trying your hardest keeping the community together and "organising" stuff, but the truth is that with a large population these things would emerge naturally.

    I don't know how to raise the population either, but I hope it works out.
     
  15. Hi Zoop, if you go mining at Minoc mines without a jester hat on, you'll get pk'd if you don't agree to wear one. The THIEF guild base is behind the Minoc stables (it's called Barter Town) and they sell the hats there. *winks*

    I hope you give Siege a bit longer, it's all a go-go sometimes....really.

    I used to use east brit bank way back in the old days, lots of memories there. But its a bit too far from the gate for those without magery. I'll go yo the brit farms from the gate, np. What about west brit bank? What if we called fri, sat and sun eves the eves to be in brit for some reason. Hell I can go bolt up some wool there or something.

    Decorate people DECORATE !!
    (especially seeing we may have guests here over the weekend)

    I was all over the shard yesterday...drab drab drab... it is DECEMBER !

    DECORATE people fill your vendors instead of it reading *empty* decorate your homes, even if your home is some evil pk homestead slap your snowmen atop some bed of nails melting over fire tiles or something !

    Everything was ...................drab, lucky a few still had jack o lanterns up but most players homes were drab drab drab...toss on some snow tiles, put up your christmas trees, and snowy crap its december !!

    *thx Sweeney...you were 'the only vendor' that I found selling christmas stuff$ and I needed another slippery icy Christmas thingie for my front public porch, so my own shoppers or lurkers visiting there, can slip and break their necks* :)

    Wanna take charge of Siege, welllll begin with your own Siege homes and DECORATE ! :) Tis the season ! :) WE do not have to look so boringly house deco'd drab, yall ! Put up your christmas trees, garland, even if bald naked tree versions, toss your snowmen over some blood/swamp tiles, all christmassy red and green, or something !

    Someone mentioned something about that wrong bank stable arena that got me thinking about our arenas, so my thoughts are if we as a community could designate this location as a no gank location instead lets use this arena as a PVP location lets just fight 1v1's in the arena.

    this doesnt mean if your getting ganked run there thinking its safe its not im just saying if im sitting there in the arena waiting for a fight dont call in a gank squad just walk into the arena and lets 1v1.

    Im also not saying its a fight night either, looting should remain optional im just saying dont gank

    hell we as a community should declare all arena's as a no gank location but remember this doesnt mean a safe location just no ganking

    well anyway just a thought

    I do too. Kind of some unwritten courtesy rules. It seems like folk are about, just not in the same places.
