    Well at one point in time the great Otis was allies to the great Yasou of WAKA. When that scruffy lord of the WAKA's done bring his war declaration into Wintermoor, all he found was me a crafter of KSS.

    Lord Py Lethius and Riz were not there at the time, but for that barbarian to declare war on the Knights of the Silver Serpent, giving his declaration of war to me...my only choice was to aim my wee lil bow at that barbarian and attack !!! The lord of WAKA was giggling, just standing there, taking in a few injuries from my puny bow. His allie and side kick with him at the moment was Otis of DR...whom slain me for attackin the great Yasou with me puny bow.

    Course we all laughed ..ya had to have been there atm but a crafter taking on the great WAKA lord was funny...HOW DARE HE bring a declaration of war onto the snows of Wintermoor......I HAD TO DEFEND our land didn't I ? Was hysterical ! I probably would not have done that normally, but I knew someone as Kerr from Chesapeake, just had to go old school and ATTACK that barbarian, for even thinking of bringing a declaration of war onto KSS Wintermoor soil as he did, anyhow Otis killed me for attacking the lord of WAKA at that time. :)

    It is still one of my fav. saved screen shots in UO on Siege...that and my once attacking the great lord of the damned WyRm as Miranda cuz the vampires attacked KSS........ :) I was told as an initiate to stay out of it but the KSS soon all became outnumbered corpses soo as a crafter with no fight skills, I HAD to do something. . I died too of course ! LOL:lol:

    I'm not really interested in crashing the "Classic Shard" thread, but I'll give my thought on that post here.

    1. I have no clue when or if a Classic shard will ever come to fruition, but Siege doesn't have a lot of time left. If our shard is going to survive at all, we need immediate attention before folks start asking for transfers off Siege. Its dead and very few are logging in, but the PvPers want to PvP, if not here then elsewhere.

    2. While there may be some current Siege players that may move to a free shard, there are quite a good number of us that enjoy and prefer the current game, imbuing, new dungeons, stealables, items and all.

    I can say for certain that I am not interested in going back in time. I've been there. It was tons of fun and I remember my noobie days quite fondly, but what can I say, I like the improvements and there are a lot of them... even tiny ones that most of us don't even realize are different. Of course they are mixed in with some crap I don't like, too.

    A Classic shard is great for those who want that.

    Siege is [or at least to me, right now... today] more of a hybrid shard. It could be awesome again, with the right attention from the dev team.

    Either way, as far as necessity goes, we can't wait terribly long for the attention we need and deserve.

    You mean this comment?

    It is not very sporting to try to play us off on one another. The Classic Shard folk have their agenda. We have ours. I respect their right to an opinion. As I am sure most of them respect our feelings.
     
  26. What is my stance on Siege?

    Well, honestly, my stance on Siege is very much the same as it is on the rest of the current shards. I do not care for the direction it was taken in by previous Dev teams. This is not a smear of Siege itself, but UO as a whole. The Devs of the past tried to make UO into a Diablo 2 clone, and in so doing, they utterly ruined a game that I loved. Siege at least never knew the taint of Trammel.

    What would I do with Siege? Again, it boils down to UO, not Siege. But knowing that the majority of the current player base enjoys the current post-AoS model, I would probably not do anything with Siege. My desire to see a Classic Shard, as an alternative to the current game has no more, and no less, to do with Siege as it does other shards. People that have accused me of wanting to see Siege changed or shut down are intentionally misrepresenting what I am saying. The only thing that I have said to that effect is the exact same thing I have said about the other shards...and that is:

    If the will of the players dictates change, then change should come.

    If a Classic Shard is launched, and it becomes more popular than the other shards...then perhaps the current dev team needs to take a look at why that is the case. Do I think that will be the case...no, probably not. But in the end, it should all be about choice...and it should all be about what you, me, them, everyone, every paying customer of UO wants...not just the majority.

    Siege has never been about satisfying the majority, and as long as there are players on that shard, I will fight tooth and nail to make sure that thier choices are not taken away from them the way it was from classic UO fans.

    I love your ideas to the Dev team. I think it would go a very long way to making seige more palatable to the prodo shards.

    i logged in today after a long spell and went to the bank to move some stuff over from my back pack to bank box and found it was full.

    Storage is a serious issue. i could never imagine trying to play a crafter here unless i placed a house.

    You are also up against a time when the Dev's are putting a serious amount of new content in the game. As such people with links to prodo shards basically have no time for seige as the arms race continues.

    That and imbuing also spell bad times for you, as in my case i have been totally overhauling my gear on prodo for my 5 main chars. This is widespread as you can see the price of fort powder has gone up 10 fold on prodo shards.

    i really wish u the best and hope you get some attention to your well thought out ideas. Seige is just as important to the UO community and deserves respect. I hope you get it prior to the relase of any such classic server.

    Peace

    I posted mofos, tell me what you think. :(

    p.s. I wanted to throw out the idea of possibly allowing a 2nd house per account, only pertaining to 1 on Siege Perilous and 1 on a prodo shard in my post. But, that to me, would be a problem in the long run. They'd have to make special housing rules for idocs-So people don't come here taking up space and never play Siege.

    Hattori and HaHa... I know how you're feeling, but Siege deserves your support. Its worth one final push for the shard we love. The devs may need some time to decide if/when and how to fit us into their schedules. They may even need some time to bounce around ideas of their own. An immediate response could be a kneejerk response of something like "sorry its not on our radar at this time"... We don't want that. Give them a little time to digest. They have lots planned and they often plan months in advance. Get off your emo horses and let them know that Siege IS worth the effort!!! I :heart: ya both, but seriously, lets not get emo about this! hehe

    Forsaken - Your post was fantastic! :thumbup1:

    Yes. The amount of posts that Morgans spams, if I read them I only skim read them and I didnt see the backflip until I saw your post and went back and read the post in Classic #2 yesterday.

    In a sense it definitely was Siege vs. Classic until Morgans backflip yesterday. The agenda was to do Classic then impose a revert on Siege. In a sense it is still is Siege vs. Classic, because if Classic does go ahead Mythic will likely put all their eggs in that basket. That is the reality.

    imo moving forward Siege enhancements to where it needs to be and should be > accurate Classic, because it is quicker cheaper and easier to maintain long term.

    It was not a back flip. Morgana listened to reason and good arguments. She changed her stance based upon those. Her deal is her deal. Siege folk are what they are.

    Why are you here?

  39. Funny, I wouldn't have read his spin job had it not been for your quote Kelmo...he is on my ignore list.

    For the record, I never said that Siege should be reverted...I said that Siege should be reverted IF THE PLAYERS OF SIEGE WANTED IT REVERTED. In fact, I have also said that a revert for Siege is unrealistic if for no other reason than the housing Malas.

    Anyway, my dealings with HD2200 or whatever are done.

    My words speak for me...not that D-bag.

    All i can say is i have NO interest in a classic shard, it would be a waste of time for EA even to consider it. There are classic FREE shards with LARGE player bases they are very popular. You like classic go play there.

    Siege is not perfect.. but it could be with a few MINOR changes.. Whats the reason i dont go play a classic shard and instead stay on siege? Easy.. Classic shard sucks i like the new stuff.. Necros, Paladins, Ninjas, Sammys, Arcanists, new spells, new weapon abilities, new bows.. ect ect ect

    Long story short.. we need Mythic to start listening to what the siege community is asking.. Siege could bring in soo many more old players who even left with just a few changes as discussed in the past.

    uo was legit back when we could pk anything in sight and take the key to their house and loot that too, then defend the property from all the hos trying to take it back.

    and they would be coming in droves to take it back cuz it was so hard just to get a house to begin with

    i could see people quitting after getting pwn3d by my crew but thats why they should just implement and in-game lending system with interest attached

    Perhaps we need to be *mathmatical* to see exactly how little or how much MONEY we as customers ARE spending to play UO EA on Siege Perilous per year and present that to them instead ??

    I am billed quarterly for 4 accts. or $34.99/34.95 4x a yr.[ x 4 accts.] per year. Someone DO THE MATH, for us ALL ! I suxxors at math ! rolleyes:

    Maybe the rest of us need to just post what they EA are also netting from the rest of us per quarter/ per year. Granted it will not be as much as regular shards income to them, but maybe they need to see precisely how much of all our money is being sent to them quarterly, yearly, from their Siege Perilous's customer base ???

    Are we just a RNG to them or do all of us amt. to at least some money they may be unaware of as to what all they may be netting from us all here on Siege ??? The only song in my mind, after reading NO responsed to our UO Hall thread, is an old Simon and Garfunkel song...Sounds of Silence. :( Maybe if we do the math as to precisely what all we each are all paying them per quarter per year to play here, and display it over there, we may get help ? or some responsiveness ?

    Just enter that thread tell em what they are making from YOUR accts. per month per quarter per year... etc. Nothing else needed.


    Let them decide then, if they wish to keep our money for Siege Perilous as their customer base, worth fixing and responding to, to continue/enable us all to keep our money coming into them or not to play on Siege ?
