    I am really disgusted with this new twist in the game, while defending or raiding an opposing faction, you have to worry about RID attacking you as well. Come fellows, we are in the same factions, we are suppose to be fighting for the same cause to win the towns, not each other. If you all want to fight against us, go to another faction.

    Then EA comes up with the big idea: not being able to attack a character within the your own faction with a pet, I can see the point of that , but you should be able to defend yourself. Even while the pet is guarding you, it will not counterattack on your behalf to an aggressor of your own faction.

    1/2 of TDR's guild is too afraid to join factions because they'll go into statloss.

    Usually you won't even see them in public with less than 10 people. When you do there are only a couple of factioners with them. Their faction guild is allied with their other guild stones so their fields don't hurt each other. Factioners will hang out in the back and jump in on the killshots.

    How do you ally a faction guild and a non-faction guild??

    I didnt think that was possible.

    Would you expect any less from them after seeing how over 1/2 the people with that tag skip around now?

    I agree Kelmo, accusations are a bad thing. There have been admissions of use on UOPvP.net.

    Some do help guard, but mostly there for the raids or when we are under attack at our base. But then they seem to like to turn on the other tb once the action is done.

    Just because you share the same faction, does not mean you have to be friends :)

    How true .. .about not having to be friends to be part of a faction... but factions are about loyalty to a cause and if RID attacks fellow faction players during a defense/event/etc it weakens the cause.

    My opinion, if you want to fight fellow factioners set up a time and place and go for it ... don't interfere with the faction defenses, causes, events, happenings, whatever you want to call it.

    Papa? Can I hold the baby???? Grand child #3 isn't due until August and I am having baby-holding withdrawl!!!!

    *starts to rock just thinking about babies*

    Oh, sorry was I singing too...... :eek:
     
  24. Yea il be back, need to try and breathe some life back into SL :D
