    Speak your opinion,,,but only with your vote.
    None of the stupid bickering back and forth endlessly as to
    why you think its a good or bad idea.
    Let the votes alone be your voice
    Besides that,,regardless of how the votes are I`d bet
    a million UO gold on ATL shard that this poll wont actually
    make a change in gameplay anyhow.

    Oh and fyi I am not voting on this personally.I just felt that an actual vote speaks louder than the flame wars.So,,,here the poll is.

  4. A poll on Stratics is hardly letting the masses speak.

    I actually have another option I prefer. That there should be no scrolls, but players should "unlock" the ability to raise stats and skills to the next level on a random chance when a stat or skill is currently maxed.

    So I voted the next best thing.

    You can vote as much as you like, but it's the developers that make the decisions.

    They have stated many, many times that powerscrolls will not be introduced to Trammel.
     
  9. *wonders how many times you'll repeat this before you realize this is a public forum in which opinions can and will be posted regardless of what the OP wants*


    Also, Petra speaks the truth. PS's will stay in Fel, as has been stated by the Devs many times over.

    Considering only the hardcore gamers read and post here, it can be assumed the real weight of the 'Fel only' option should be divided by 3 or 4.
    Wild guess, of course.

    On topic, my daily champion spawn gave me all 110's and one crap 115.
    This is leading nowhere.

    Obviously Petra you are not either: 1) a long term vet, or 2) at a memory loss on the past.

    You forget other things, like necromancy, tram not being a mirror of fel, and soul stones. All of these, at one time or another, were stated that they would never see the light of day, either.

    BTW, I voted 'no'. I think the should stay in Fel. Just had to make sure to note that just because the team SAYS something at certain points of time doesn't mean that's how it will always be.

    O.K. it seems here that `some` of you people cannot help but to troll.
    I thought that for once maybe you all could be mature adults.
    apparently i was wrong about that.
    The voting speaks more than your flaming.

    If one were to fully read my 1rst post you would allready know that i don't think this poll is going to change anything ingame.

    The idea was poll only,,,no trolling.Trolling is what gets threads locked.
    As some of you whined and cried it's obvios to me that YOU WANT THIS THREAD LOCKED so it won't be known how many people here actually like/dislike the idea. So go right ahead and flame me in hopes of getting this thread locked,,I am only interested in the votes thank you.

    This is the case. It's great to do a poll for your own curiosity, but in reality, the developers will do what they want. Also, a large segment of the players play on asian shards, and not many of them post on stratics.

    Powerscrolls are years old and if you cannot either make the money to buy them or farm them yourself something is wrong.

    Risk vs. reward is something that has been limited to a great extent in this game, lets not send it down a ever more slanted slope.

    thank god a lot of people voted no, i dunno why anyone would start a thread like this to begin with, if scrolls spawned in tram it would kill pvp all together and uo would lose many subscribers, the only thing worth fighting over is champ spawns

    105s to 115s don't bother me dropping in tram. But there has to be some sort of bonus for going to fel, and risk being PKed or having to fight. There's too few as it is imo. Gotta leave the 120s in fel.

    Edit: I take this back, I forgot about scroll binding. 105s to 110s in tram only!

    I voted 105 scrolls only, just because I'm sick of this debate on Stratics. Give em the damn 105 scrolls. It's still gonna take a long time and many spawns to collect the scrolls you want to bind into 110s. Even longer to try and bind them into 115s or 120s.

    At least this way, with spawns in Trammel maybe the blues will actually get better at completing a spawn and grow the balls to attempt them in Felucca.

    Well, even without considering that, the vote at like 130 votes cast is anyways in favour of Trammel spawning powerscrolls, one way or the other.

    Sure, 51 vs. 49 so far but still.........

    Stated just like that or actually explaining sound reasons for it ?

    Because arguments can be discussed and countered while a flat out "NO" without giving reasons only leaves one speechless (and puzzled).....

    Excuse me, but I got a-m-a-z-e-d reading that line.

    I mean, I have heard probably a zillion times how fighting against a human being is a thousands time better than fighting some AI NPC and then I have to think that players actually need some sort of bonus to PvP ???

    HALLO ????????

    The bonus is the challenge of fighting a human being and not a computer run MoB !!!

    I am astonished.

    Totally agree here Popps. PvPrs always claim the thrill is in the fight not the reward. When you talk about changing the reward though all of a sudden it becomes the holy grail. THE reason they PvP.

    Besides, according to the votes here, it seems that wanting 'some' kind of PS to drop in Tram is winning. And for all the long winded posts and crying in the other thread that 'nobody' wants it...

    Yet the poll is showing otherwise. Goes to show Stratics lurkers again think themselfs the majority if its what they want.

    yes,,,i know it sounds like a broken record.
    yes i am well aware that some of you just cant zip it.
    yes i know some of you are intentionally trying to
    goad people into flaming so the thread will be locked
    in hopes of making the `question` go away

    i didn't put this here for commentary
    i put it here for votes
    i personally want to see how EVERYONE
    stands on the issue
    all i need for that are "votes"
    the only person besides the OP here that has a valid post is the one guy
    whom wanted to vote for an option that wasn't listed.
    everyone else...let your vote do the talking.
    Thank you all and have a nice day.

    I voted 105s in tram sets,but they shouldnt drop as frequent as they do at a fel spawn. Perhaps make it so only the bosses in tram champs can drop 105s. that gives pvmers alittle more reason to do tram champs and it wouldnt take anyone from fel champs. I dont see how adding another drop source of 105s would hurt fel, yes scroll binders but thatd take forever to make a 120 out of 105s. even with binders, 105s are nearly worthless and most pvpers at champs just throw them away.

    And devs have been getting laid off... Just sayin.
    Mage , eval, med, tactics, and maybe mysticism 120 scrolls (haven't check prices recently) have crazy markups. Putting them in Tram would reduce their cost.

    Either that or eliminate power scrolls al together and make some sort of quest I can do to unlock the next skill cap

    I must applaude you Magdalene, for your wisdom of removing only the faulty posts rather than harming the whole thread.

    Personally, I hate it when a thread is made to stop just because a few posters, not even the original starter of the thread, post outside of the posting rules.

    I think it is important towards the freedom of discussing important topics about the game, that single posts may not endanger a whole thread and therefore be removed as you did on a case by case basis without harming the whole thread.

    Good decision, Magdalene.
     
  44. I voted.. and others are voting, but all this is going to show is who wants what from who actually reads this.... there are sooooooooo many players who dont even read Stratics, so this poll isnt even an accurate count from all players.

    No to tram Power Scrolls!!


    ---OR---

    If they want scrolls in tram, make the area around the alter a PVP area.

    But, I know which one is easier to code :) So dont hold your breathe

    It's amazing to me how many people want Fel to completely die, and, at the least, encouraging to me to see there are still so many people who actually PvP

    You know what got me thinking, if they allowed 105 and 110s in Tram, you could scroll bind them of course. But wouldn't this also give a reason for the PS in Fel to be saved. I mean you could sell 110s and what not that come from Fel easier and charge more for them. So in away it would boost both spawns I feel. Its something to think about that is for sure.
