    As most of our readers know I have been a Great Lakes Stratics Reporter for many years.

    My articles are usually person beyond the character highlights and player run events.

    I do on a rare day venture into Fel for one reason or another, always on a alt character.

    PvP has never been my forte. I tried it years ago on Baja for six months and let's just say I sucked,lol.

    I am a Tram girl all the way and with that said I have a serious question I would like feedback on in a hopefully constructive manner.

    Is ress/killing the way in Fel these days? I ventured this evening into Fel to do a spawn with a group and a guild which I am not familar with called J*W raided us and ress/killed me over and over. I do not get the point to this. This does not seem like an actual fight as the oppenent is not even ready to spar again. This manner of play was not the mode years ago when I was PvPing. My group kept yelling ress killing is for losers.

    I would like to hear peoples thought on this.

    Res killing is technically a 1 v 1, and I support it.

    On that note, good duel Deprave.

    All a part and parcel to the "Fel Experience"...

    Gee and they wonder why people think everyone in Fel is a cheating loser...

    That's a no brainer.

    Sorry to say but if you don't cheat, speed hack and run with every faction arty you can get your hands on then I must suggest you steer clear of Fel fighting.

    Until EA/UO does something about the speed hacking and 3rd party program use nothing will ever change.

    So if they are a bunch of namsy pamsy couldn't take a fair fight if it came calling, rez killers I'm not surprised in the least.

    To me rez killing is 100% lame...

    There is only one reason you would rez kill in my opinion... and that is to demoralize someone deserving for some injustice they have done to you, otherwise it's just plain panzy.

    I am so glad people are replying to this.

    It made no sense to me to kill a person that was just ressed, had no time to get HP up nor suited correctly that you did not know nor had issues with. There is no challenge nor skill in this that I can see.

    Grow up little girl. You were in fel. You took a ress from the person that killed you. THen you did it again and again. How many times do you need to stick your fingers in the fire before you learn the lesson. In case you did not learn it. Stick to Lady M in Tram.

    It was a raid... it happens. You were just gullible enough to get ressed by me 6 or 7 times...

    You are as wrong headed as she is. There are a number of legitimate reasons to ress kill.
    1. it is a good way to make money.
    2. you have not finished looting the dead persons stuff.
    3. you are in a battle and the ressed up person needs to leave instead of ressing.
    4. my favorite is it is comical when some noob takes the ress over and over again.

    Dont take the ress people and if you get ress killed at a healer dont be an idiot and do it again. The person killing you is not concerned with a count and will keep killing you as long as you ress.

    Lasly what the **** does ress killing have to do with cheating. How exactly are they connected?

    Well if it was Alex that was res killing I can definitely see how she connected the two.

    Would you expect different results if taking a rez in a dragons lair?

    Sorta reminds me of watching somebody run up to a blue healer next to a reaper 10 times in a row expecting something else but death.

    Actually I was ress killed only once myself. I have been around long enough to know that. Others that were ress/killed over and over....I stand corrected here on my original post.

    To do this to get gold is a JOKE and not the truth. I highly doubt any skilled PvP or unskilled PvP player ( as many are that run in packs and ress/kill ) is in need of gold.

    If ress killing is what floats your boat then IMO ....let's just say I will keep my true thoughts to myself.

    Though I have not been to Lady M in several months I would prefer that to ress/killing people or being ress/killed in Fel.

    Rez killing has always been around. But if you didn't learn after the first time you got rez killed, then you probably had it coming anyways.
     
  12. res killing is UO's 'teabagging' :lol:

    Hehe Lady Lava got tea bagged. I think you just coined a new term in uo. From now on ress killing will be called tea bagging

    If you got raided at a spawn they kill u so u leave not for the fight. Honestly I would think most people who raided would of rez killed you and anyone else.

    If people are looking for a fight they might not rez kill but in the way of factions or champs spawns be ready to see a stealth archer pop out and take the shot.

    In the way of making gold off the kill I have killed trammies and made about 5k off of them one kill that pays better then most the monster in the game.

  19. I find it very interesting to hear views from each side of the spectrum. As someone who has played both a Fel based character and a Tram based character I can see each side.Although when I was a member of PvP years ago I did not usually take part in champ spawn raids, so I cannot speak for those of you who do. I can understand why some people may find it very frustrating, but I must agree with those who say that someone who gets rez killed over and over is not learning from the experience.

    Yes, the rampant cheating in Fel is upsetting, but rez killing is not cheating and should not be considered a part of that. I have never been rez killed at a spawn because I have never accepted a rez from the player who has killed me. So far, as a currently Tram based character, I have not had a negative experience with getting raided at a spawn. The one time I was killed unexpectedly by a red (I was exploring the new spawn and forgot to stealth, lol) he was polite after and offered me a rez, though I graciously said no thank you as I have a rule about not accepting a rez from someone who has killed me in Fel. The red that killed me belongs to a guild on our shard whose name I believe sums it up perfectly: Nothing Personal, It's Just a Game.

    I don't want to sound harsh, but if you accept a resurrection from one of the players who killed you and they kill you a second time, accepting a second rez is kind of silly. And while I believe that rez killing is just another part of the game, I do not condone those who stealth camp all of the npc healers in one location (such as in Delucia) and then rez kill. I think that this is just unnecessary and a little mean.

    That being said, Fel is meant for those players who would like to play the game this way. If you go into anywhere in Felucca, you should be prepared for the worst, especially if you're not accustomed to handling yourself in Fel. And it really does help to remember that you are just playing a game, same as every other player.

    J~W have nothing else left in the bag!

    They used to be a force, now they are just cannon fodder hiding behind the 3-5 decent pvpers.

    As such they will take any opertunity to be able to yell in vent "yay i just killed someone!!!"

    Take heart in the fact most other guilds are not like this, hell i, even after **** talking someone into a 1v1 got resed and healed up after they killed me!

    To me the norm is they will leave you be, to J~W the norm is get as many res kills as possible because we cant get any other kills!!!

    Now while I dont support res kills, the one and only time this is quote "OKAY" is when it is at a spawn. The reason being, you fight 6v6 or whatever, you kill off 5 of the 6, the last runs. This person sets up a "Res Point" to get everyone back in the fight. If you happen to "find" this res point, you are free game. The reason is, if you expect to regroup and go back, do it OUTSIDE of the spawn area/dungeon.

    Now while you might say "THAT MAKES NO SENSE!", this isn't old school. People don't "fight to fight" anymore. Everything is about winning something. Winning scrolls, winning the champ to kill it uncontested, winning and keeping sigils, etc.

    But what I said above is "USUALLY" the rule. Like, you wouldn't chase a ghost out of despise to res-kill. If you do that, you really are a n00b.


    PS: The only other time a res-kill is ok, if you know the person who is taking the res, res-kills people all the time. In which case, karma is a bastid. :)

    Sounds to me like Lava got "tea-bagged", and now she is just upset that someone (j-w) probly collected over 9k in insurance from a trammie princess, (who rarely goes to fel, but has played long enuff to know what takes place in fel), and opted to use stratics as way to make J-W look bad.

    Oh, btw, you should make the picture of the ress kill on the front page of your weekly obits. Im sure it will have the most views of all your obit columns.

    The front page should read...

    J-W Teabagged Lava, boy was it Hot!

    This is post is nonsense on your part, I resent that you imply everyone in Fel runs a speed hax or a cheat, I live and play the game in Fel.

    If your killed by a red, use a bit of sense and not rez around them. And if you get rk'ed over and over again, that is your own fault for allowing that to happen.
