    Seriously you guys need to keep it in chat or on the field. I will not tolerate this stuff on Origin or any other forum. Keep the filter work arounds out and stop using other words to get your point across, ie various names for male anatomy. I really don't like being a mean moderator but you all are leaving me no choice.

    Keep it real or don't post it, cause if this gets locked, I'm not starting another.

    Its not SUPR guys fault that he spelled out curse words, he wasnt trying to get past the vulgar word filter, he just has to spell words out for Goodmann because Goodmann lacks upstairs.

    I will no longer post in this forum since it is ran in communist china and freedom of speech is not tolerated.
     
  9. You are free to say whatever you want Santa, as long as it follows the guildlines... and maybe if you use a little tact when you talk (type) you wouldnt run into issues.. neither would others.... well, here, just in case you aren't sure what I am talking about ......

    Tact - noun - Meaning: a keen sense of what to say or do to avoid giving offense; skill in dealing with difficult or delicate situations.

    and, of course smack is the antithesis of tact. But seriously, the violations present in the previous thread are avoided almost completely on other shards.
     
  11. you can use tact in smack talk... its all about the words you use I suppose, but it can be done.

    and honestly, I dont know if a couple of the guys can control themselves enough for it to not happen again.

    /Thread. LOL

    I think this is why Pacific doesn't have any dedicated PvP thread(s).. We probably already had plenty before I joined Stratics... Now they are on just random posts and eventually die out.. Though I must say I enjoy PvP threads. Too bad people have to act like 13 year olds :gee:
     
  13. The thread getting closed had nothing at all to do with SUPR. At least one of the people who got the previous one closed calls Origin home. The other use to call Origin home, but has since moved on for the most part.

    This thread has been locked a few times and none of those times were due to SUPR either.

    If the thread hadnt gotten so out of hand, it would've stayed up on the boards and you could see who I am talking about, but it was so bad Oriana couldnt even keep the locked version up.

    I am sorry, but your rant is directed at the wrong people.
     
  14. Yah, we don't have this problem with whole PVP threads being started over and over and over, and pac threads are much worse than what I have seen here. I have received more warnings here than during my whole time posting on stratics. It's funny how someone's personal view can dictate a whole forum. I think someone need's to ease back ALOT. Maybe look at other shard's forums and see how they run. ;) Just a thought.

    I think the censorship bar needs to be uplifted a bit from our shoulders. At least make it rated PG-13? They treat us like we are 6.

    The thread was closed b/c Goodmann was a crybaby about his feelings, not SUPR, now on to a more positive thread...

    I PVPed today, I found a blue in Fel, I pushed him down in the dirt, then helped him up and we hugged.

  18. Yen, if thats how you feel, then theres nothing anyone can say to change that, but I will ask one thing..... the one that was completely removed, did you read it at all?

    And the first one that was locked, did you read at all why it was locked?
     
  19. How does this work?

    I admit, I was going up and over the top of my usual type of language. It probably was my fault, and I'll go ahead and accept responsibility if you will quit pointing your finger like a little kid. A quick question though:
    If you have never pvp'ed, and if its not worth your time to see grown men/women act like children, what then, are you doing in this thread at all?
    Seriously, linguistic logic WILL prevent you from answering this question without being contradictory. Take your time though.

    Furthermore, your concern for everyone else's maturity, seems indicative of some pretty serious insecurities regarding your own maturity. I remember Morg posting on our shard about you. This isn't the first time you've gone pointing your finger at other people's maturity. Have you forgotten that this is a game? Do you think we all act like this at work? Seems like a gardening forum might be more up your alley...

    Furthermore, you fail to realize that it is all about 'fun'. If I wasn't having fun, I wouldn't have posted. Same can probably be said for goodmann.

    A quick note here. I do not lock threads or hand out infractions lightly. The last thread was appalling by any shards standards. Yes Bud, I do visit other forums. And I see the posts that many do not see that are from those forums. The Stratics team is a great one and we communicate very well amongst each other. Bud you over exaggerate how many warnings you have received here. To the rest that want to call my a communist or censorship police, I am simply doing my job. There are rules of these forums. You break those rules, it's my job to act. Listed above are the most commonly broken rules in red. I usually give the PvP thread more lee way because I do understand the workings of pvp. BUT, that said... the last 2 threads have gone above and beyond anything I have seen on any other forum. It's simply not acceptable. Yes you have rights. But those rights do not include breaking the rules of the forum you agreed to follow when you joined it. Keep it PvP civil, leave out the profanity and work arounds to avoid the filters. Leave out the personal attacks of ones education, parentage etc. Smacking the way someone pvps is one thing, just flat out being mean is trolling. That's the difference between the last 2 threads especially the last one and other forums I see.
     
  22. uhm you're trying to get me in more trouble arent you? lol I dont think I said this about Yen, maybe others, but not Yen lol ... and I take that back if you were speaking in general.
     
  23. I don't PvP either any more but I do enjoy reading the PvP threads. I've seen these locked several times in the past and for good reason.

    I totally disagree with you on "who's fault this was". First from what I've seen here and in other threads, there seems to be a strong dislike for any new Pvpers coming to this shard and It's just too obvious why. Some people need to acknowledge that Origin's battle fields do not belong to just a select few. This game is open to all who pay for it and they have the right to come and go from here as they please. Hopefully, without being condemned from the beginning for so called "trespassing on someone Else's turf."

    Secondly, Yen, you must not have been reading the Pvp threads long or you could see that there is a person involved here that is the epitome of a troll. He has verbally attacked just about anyone and everyone that has ever posted on this forum. He trolls to the point of getting people really upset, then tries to turn the table to look as though he is the one being attacked and cries "help me momma". :lol: Just because in this case he wasn't the one using curse words, he was breaking the rules the just the same...and as usual I might add.

    You others need to stay off Oriana and quit making stupid comments about communist rules. There are rules in every facet of life, in game and out. And all rules were made for a reason. Get over your little "hand slap", it wont burn long. Your just lucky you weren't "kicked to the curb".

    Oh, well who was the guy you posted about here a while back that assumed all pvpers were under the age of 18 or something. Remember? You made a poll in regard to everyone's age?
     
  27. lol that was on uhall and i dont remember who is was honestly.
    But some you come across on Origin have the same type of views that guy had. =/

    And I agree with Crystal... some act like Origin is their shard only. I will admit, on the field I have the same attitude. Just another spawning guild, etc is what I would accuse them of being and I would tell them they had no business coming to Origin just to farm scrolls, but I would keep that in game for the most part and always welcomed the new challenge.

    Origin has been without a main PvP guild for so long now that people who normally dont spawn, got to spawn, now they want to keep spawning, but they dont want to have to fight for those spawns.
    MBS, S1N, SUPR, FFBz would offer competition for those who have been getting spawns off without any complications.

    The way I see it is this... SUPR said they were coming, some people didnt like this.. others said bring it... They have been mainly respectful on the forums, compared to some long time residents of Origin.
    MBS came here somewhat quietly and then Balinor made his debut on the boards... he has provoked others by posting his screenshots and making his posts. It made a dead thread alive again.
    Now MBS is from another shard and Balinor indeed has a big mouth, I am sure he would even agree, but I dont see anyone blaming him for anything.

    Is it that SUPR is from Pacific that makes them the bad guys? I am just curious... cause it doesnt make sense as to why all the blame for the threads getting locked is being put on SUPR.

    And yes, give Oriana a break. Pacific is relaxed as to where the posts are made about PvP, but I can assure you that the kind of posts we've had here the last couple days, wouldnt have flown on Pacific either.

    If you guys feel too restricted and cant express your selves without cheap shots and cussing, (dont get me wrong I love the stuff) check out uopvp.net.

    Ervin has opened it up to all shards and has made a forum for Origin, no one has posted in it yet but if you guys need a place to really let lose on each other then look no further.

    BTW Oriana I would not feel bad about locking the thread, the rules are clear some people just cant control thier anger.

    Your Friend, Atl.

    If I had to guess Yen is mad b/c SUPR found his tram arse in Fel, pushed him in the dirt without helping him up and hugging like I do now in order to please the sissy people in this thread and the previous one, and now Yen has it out for SUPR. Thats the only logical reason I could think of. Either that or he has the "I am a trammy and do things the nice way in game all the time so I believe I should be entitled to more than Fel players b/c they are evil and bad and bad people should not have a say-so in anything." sydrome and forgets the beautiful thing about UO was the mixture of good and bad players and how thats what made the UO world go round. Player interaction and the vast amout of different people and playstyles you run across is what makes the game so great. This is not "Care Bears Online" for a reason. Grow up kid.

    SUPRsalad Guest

    Meh, thats all just pvp-talk. Its not like anyone ACTUALLY thinks this their shard or not. . Thats what makes it fun. Its almost like pretending its their shard, and that we are the invaders. Its funner that way, I can't blame em.. In regard to the thread-lock thing, yeah it was most likely our fault. I tend to push them envelope. This time I think think I got the envelope thrown in the trash and they had to get another one from the box.
    edit: & now I know, and knowing is half the battle.

    Yeah, it gets old that people STILL get so offended over insurance loss. . Its like, try playing factions with us, when you lose insurance, points, AND you can't really play for 20 minutes! I stopped getting mad about dying circa AOS. REAL pvp trash talk is nearly an extinct thing on Pac nowadays. I suppose I can take some credit for that trend. The way we see it, the game is almost dead as it is, and dying as we speak. You're losing people to pvp with all the time, so why rub it in when you win? We've tried, and to some extent, with great success, to make our scene more inviting and accepting. The truth is, our pvp scene IS inviting and it IS accepting. We have the second largest pvp scene on any shard, largely, IMO, due to this trend.

    &edit: believe me, the WORST kind of immature distasteful trash-talk, comes from trammel on Pac, and NAMELY from ONE individual. Rumor has it, she was on your shard once too.. Anyone know who I'm talking about?
     
  31. that freakin wench can go you know where... if she was ever on Origin, it was before I started playing in 07, glad it wasnt then, its bad enough to deal with her now.

    Oops my bad.

    Ervin accually allows people to read without signing in now, and no, personal attacks are not allowed or encouraged. Because really if someone needs to stoop to real life attacks, well they lost the argument.

    But yea Oriana is right, if you feint at the sight of blood then this site is not for you.
     
  36. I have another idea as to what a couple of people here need. That is simply to "Show up or Shut up".

    So many times I have seen the bragging about what all a person can do and how they "pwn" this shard and the people in it. Yet, when asked to duel or make good on their assessments of their skills, they avoid the poster that is asking them to meet up and prove themselves.

    Posting pictures of such fights is cool, but yet they don't tell the whole story. Did the poster just happen upon some one's corpse, take a pic of it and post that they took him out in one shot? ( I ran across the corpse of Pub one day going to a spawn and I was soooo tempted to stand on top it and snap a pic...LOL)

    For those of us who really love to read these PvP threads, I for one, would actually like to see some of these "braggarts" take someone up on the offer of a duel, and post the time and place so that we can come watch. That would be the ultimate truth about who can do what. My bad!

    Stratic forums are the best way to keep in touch with the game and the people who play it. Going to another forum just because you can curse and make real life threats is just, in my opinion, proving that you are only posting to look like a big shot. You will spend more time going back and forth with someone, trying to outwit them, then you will be playing the game. Mission lost.

    So, I say, bring on some more Pvp smack talk and put your character where your mouth is! Show up or Shut up!
     
  37. SUPRsalad

    SUPRsalad Guest

    Generally speaking, thats always been the case on any shard. Here a while back, the three greatest mages of all time finally shut up and showed up, and it was all sifted out once and for all. Chad(FME) was defeated by kyrite(GOO) and payed out 20m. Kyrite was then defeated by Orion(SUPR) and payed it forward. Haven't heard a shread of ****-talk since then.

    Generally speaking, its always the guys that can't play a mage to save their life that do all the talking. "its an archer thing" is what we always say to these kinds of players. The fact is, a mage stands little chance winning against the newer breeds of gimps in a 1v1 confrontation. On the same token, you can't raid, or defend, on a gimp, and a gimp can't x-heal. Its a generally talentless and selfish template, and thats why its always most annoying when these guys boast up.

    In summary, Gimps just shouldn't talk ****.
    Mages shouldn't talk **** either, cus If I've learned anything about mages, theres always a bigger badder mage out there. (unless you're orion)
    Frankly, ****-talk in general is pretty whack. If you truly care about pvp, you wouldn't try to stifle it with petty bull-****.

    I love it when the person who wants you to duel him calls in a gank squad and then wonders why no one pays him the time...the chump I am speaking of wears a red suit and rides in a sleigh pulled by reigndeer.

    Think about it dude. You should be flattered.
     
  40. Thats exactly why I'm suggesting that people publically call him out and name the place and time of his choosing, and let us all go see just how leet he really is. If he brings a gank squad with him, all will see it. He wont be able to deny it or make excuses.
     
  41. Gemma is right and there was no bs afterwards cause screenshots were posted from the beginning to the end.. the **** talk has stopped on the forums between those 3 players about who is better and who isnt.

    Crystal is right also, call him out, have ppl there to watch and I'll even offer to do screenshots :p If they pull out the gank squad, then everyone will know and he'll look even worse.

    Just a thought though.. Lets us know what you guys decide. :)

    LOL i dont pvp buy lol nice idea can we do same for scripter pics
     
  44. I sure wish we could Wanderer. I think it would be too hard to know for sure if someone is actually scripting. I've seen people so many times doing things that I just know is scripting but couldnt prove it. Best to page on them and hope someone shows up to take care of them.
     
  45. with the new crafting menu it makes it a little more difficult to tell sometimes. I fill my pack with stuff i need to make potions, hit make max and go do a load of laundry.. so if someone tries talking to me, i wont be answering... hmmm since thats changed, i wonder if thats afk macroing? probably huh?
     
  46. LOL...I have no idea, but I use the new crafting menu while I watch T.V. Best thing they have come with so far!
