    I remember reading in one of your other posts that you do mostly PvM. I don't think anyone is going to give you faction points on this shard so you can never step foot on the PvP scene.

    Move along.

    OMG !!! Im a big time trammy Im in factions I would never expect someone to give me points. I do my part in factions guarding sigils, and trying to keep members alive the best I can. I finally got my first faction kill the other nite and didnt even know it til I saw the silver in my pack 5 minutes later. I been in factions over a year now. Point is you dont have to pvp raid etc to be in factions. Guarding sigils is a very important part of factions to course your gonna die at times but thats how it goes at times. point is if I can get out there and do it you can to =P

    At least he was honest, but I agree with your statement.

    My longtime friend Michelle, did in fact get 25 points for the killing blow on a UOD, she was like wow, that many points for one kill. I laughed so hard when she told me that, congrats friend :)

    Yes but the point is you take a part in factions, this other person wants no part of it just wants the cheap gear.

    ya true, but I wanted to point out to him maybe helping guarding would earning him points. Im offered points but I decline them I guard to be helpful, the new faction items mean nothing to me items wont make you any better or worse at how you play, and that cheap gear statement kinda makes me want to sell my points for 300k per point to show him that nothing is cheap, but I like having my points so I will keep them I have better ways to earn gold.

    My uo hubby joined com on his crafter to get the pretty little pony. He stayed in com while I went tb come to think about it I havent seen him come to our fel keep on that character since. I wonder if that might have something to do with me saying I see you in fel your going down. :spider:

    *begin pissed off rant*

    Seriously this is the very reason that I wish they would make it so that the faction items can not be worn in Tram. It really ticks me off to see people suggest a way to circumvent the points system like this. Are you guys even REMOTELY aware what this does to people who actually play the faction system? Are you aware that when you make dummy characters in other factions just to get kill points to jack up your score that it has a negative impact on those who try to get the points in a legitimate manner. By you jacking up false point totals you raise the point value it takes to reach high rank. In other words the more points you get by means of cheating raises the min. requirements of points to reach a certain rank for others. The more people who have high number of points, the more points you need to achieve rank. By you guys doing this, it makes it harder for those of us who put our points on the line every day fighting in Fel. Seriously it royally pisses me off, and i know for fact it pisses other people off in factions (and I mean in all factions not just TB, but CoM, MiN and SL as well). This is why when I see people at the strongholds sitting at the points box getting their items, I either snoop your pack and take it from you the second it pops into your pack and you can get away or insure (this is for items that you can gank), or if I'm on my fighter or mage or tammer I will just kill you and gank it. I could care less you fly the TB (or what ever faction your in, I'm sure I'm not the only one who feels this way) colors or not. If you don't jump in and help, you should die, repeatedly, or get looted repeatedly. If you want to be in factions for the gear....fine....but FIGHT or DEFEND or even steal and run sigs to earn your keep, if you can't do this, then **** off and stay in tram.

    I strongly protest your comment about Yoink, he is a valuable part of TB! If you had been with us trying to defend our base against an overwhelming force of COM, you would of seen Mr. Yoink, he is there but I haven't seen you!

    Don't read too strongly into Thalidar's posts. He was just projecting how he feels about himself onto Mr. Yoink. He's having a hard time coping with the realization that he's a non-factor.

    Your right lynk.. I am a non factor I dont protect sigils rofl.. Thats truely a waste of time that doesnt complete much if anything at all.. If people place guards, then I just walk around. High reg prices, I dont need regs. I just dont see much of a need, nor care for anything that sigils have to offer. By the way, I dont need a war horse eitheir. Aww lynk keep running ur uber crew of 3 people, they are a dominating force thanks to uod protecting ya.

    Play the game before you attempt to talk smack to me. Yes, I don't imagine that you would need a war horse for your stealth archer. Isn't that the only character you're willing to orange on?

    I took the guild, now of roughly 10 members, to Minax.

    I know you're still bitter because you weren't accepted on the stone back then. Try to move on.

    Quoted original post lest we forget where this all started.

    *sneakylilgrannythief jumps in with rose-colored-glasses idea*

    Well, maybe, just maybe if we get this returning player in a guild and ask him to participate in factions for a few days and we will give him points ... he will be as hooked on factions as we are.... maybe it is easy for me to say since I give my points away as quickly as I can, but if it might recruit a new player into factions...

    Just a crazy old lady idea....

    *grins at Lady Michelle*

    Congrats on the kill! I know exactly what you mean... first time I killed someone I didn't realize it until I asked... hey, where did this silver come from :)

    jeeze mr.yoink what did it take ya all week to find that pic? its been a while.. just saying.. Also for future knowledge u shoulda put "this is thalidar sitting at yew gate in his gear.." cuz i dont guard sigs.. thats for *special* people with no lives.
     
  34. MrYoink

    MrYoink Guest

    So sorry it took 2 days to reply......I forgot to forsake my personal life to square up against you in forums. And I don't consider anyone who fights at the Yew gate impressive. Yew gate is for house hiders. It took me a bit, but I now understand why no one fights in Buc's anymore. There is no house to hide in. I miss the days before custom housing. And I will take the fact you never see me at Yew gate as a compliment. It means as a thief I am doing my job correctly. Don't forget to insure your stuff, not that you ever have anything that I would want to gank anyway.

    Thalidar Guest

    LOL the fact you dont come to yew gate is cuz your main template is a thief.. thats why.. You must have never been to bucs and seen the server lines apparently. Its amazing there better then houses by far.. so.. thats the reason why people dont pvp at bucs not to mention your blue character.. i mean all of your characters would not be protected by guards.. just saying bud.. better luck next time. Go board warrior against someone you can actually win against on the boards and in game like that uod kid scout.
