    Sorry I'm at work so it's difficult for me to navigate the other thread with my poor signal. Is this true? If so could you post a link.

    Thx

    This is bull****... If they want to have a meeting, they need to do it in a way that's not going to be chaos with everyone shouting their suggestions.

    They were SUPPOSED to have this meeting about nine months ago and it never happened.

    Agrees with Ian. While an in game meeting might be fun... Is it the place you really want to take care of serious business?

    I have to agree with you there. Polls were carried out and the results sent to the devs. The groundwork has been prepared for the changes to be implemented. Having a meeting tomorrow evening is a recipe for chaos. I only hope the meeting is to tell us they are going ahead with the changes, and not to invite further debate on the issue.

    Didn't you know....this is a great way to show good face. Saying they conducted a meeting with Siege. 9pm eastern....how many ppl do you think is going to make this. Also...the chaos if a lot of ppl do show.

    This!

    Lets not jump the gun, folks. Quite frankly, I'm happy to have some sort of interaction and communication with them on the issue. I'll reserve my pancakes for another time.

    Perhaps after the meeting? lol Hopefully not.

    Btw... THe Luna Town Cryer is babbling something about a PvP Event! Nothing about a meeting or anything. :confused:
     
  14. Maybe you can go to the meeting and ask them what fix they have planned for speedhacking...

    IT IS Happening.

    A little love could go a long way though:

    The Brit Town Cryer says:

    [​IMG]
    Oh really, when was the Casca event storyline? 4 years ago?


    The Luna Town Cryer:

    [​IMG]
    Yes, that PVP Tourney! Ohh wait, wasn't that 1-2 months ago?


    As I'm taking my screenshots, the Luna Town Cryer goes:
    [​IMG]
    So yes, seems something is up tomorrow evening. Not sure I can make it, let me know what happens.

    Wow... maybe I shouldn't have spammed the poor cryer! lol All he kept saying was PvP Tourney! I'll do my best to be there. If our shard reporters can be there, that'd be great too! No matter what happened, there will be something to report. I'm sure hoping its good news rather than bad!

    WTF is your problem? I was just looking for confirmation. If you have a problem with that, not my problem. You can stop acting like that was some sort of personal slight against you, because it wasn't.

    Now how does THAT foot taste?

    Ditto, like most events it's too early for us west coast peeps :/ Maybe I'll try to go into work a half hour early and duck out early, could potentially make it then. (Barring traffic). Someone there make sure you speak up for us non-faction peeps! (get rid of "owned by" and hero/evil dye effecting non-faction people)

    1) Well, it IS an East Coast server...*shrug*

    2) I think you have the discussion of removing the "owned by" on faction gear wrong. It's meant for other FACTIONERS to wear it, not non-faction. The removing hero/evil hue was for all the other non-faction gear so anyone could wear.

    3) Hence bringing back cursed arties (for you).

    I'd have preferred a discussion on this forum. At least it would be semi organised and they could get some data from it.

    I'll try to be there, bit late for me in UK timezone but I'll use matchsticks to keep my eye lids open :)

    Sadly, I work whatever days I want, but I already have my alloted days off all planned out. Had I know on Sunday I would have not skipped work on Monday so I could attend. Oh well.

    Just an idea: Can someone with the know-how record the entire meeting and post it, maybe? It would need to be clear, since its the text is what everyone is interested in seeing.

    If I happened to be a producer of UO and was going to an open meeting I would want to be well informed so my guess it that whom ever we are meeting has made good use of this board and done their homework. I am sure that this person knows all the things we asked for and has read all of the polling results.

    My fear is that he will be speaking to 25 people...I wish we had more the 1 days notice so we could actually muster a crowd. As it sits I have my daughters year end concert and will not be able to attend.

    All we can do is cross our fingers and hope that something good comes from this!

    If this is only happening on Siege, it must be a good thing...right?

    I just hope there is a mixture of pvp and pvm as well as role players there. I know I will not be home so I wont be able to attend but I hope someone speaks for some of the faction changes and skill tweaks.

    I will try to be there, but I have grad school work to do and the assignment is due tonight, so I can't put it off. I may be physically at the meeting, but not really there all the time.

    I'll be there spamming get rid of faction arties!!! :)
     
  36. Some advice to everyone that is a Siege player/supporter:


    The best thing you (we) can do is to be prepared. A unified front is the best way to go. If you have 3-4 dozen people spamming various things, this will not go well.

    I have, unofficially, led the charge for a Classic Shard for a long time now, and I can tell you, that getting everyone to agree on every single thing is not possible...but you can get a minimum "must have" punch list together that the majority agrees upon.

    It sounds like some of you already have that, and that's good...but you don't want a bunch of rogue spammers F'ing up the meeting.

    What about the meeting ?? :sad4::sad4:
     
  45. Basically, Cal and Messana came, people spammed, they said they would work with Bruin to get some changes made...said it would take until at least August before they could really get to it...then they handed out pies and killed us.

    And I killed it single handedly with my right hand tied to my left foot.

    Or was it my dragon who took part in the killing? I´m not sure...

    The entire meeting was a PR stunt to keep us dragging along. Calvin asked for a PM about the issues the majority of us agree on, which he already has.

    The second part of the meeting was just a joke. He wouldn't even say Siege would get any dedicated dev time (meaning once again we're on the back-burner for everything). It was all about throwing us the idea of a bone without even giving us a bone or promising a bone (Using Bruin's words).

    On the bright side, tomorrow we'll get a "History of Siege's Intent" from Calvin. That was the only definite assurance to come from the otherwise useless meeting.

    Otherwise he wasted his, Messana's, and our time.
