    Wow, threads get a lot shorter when you clean all the OT - trash talking out of them!

    *chuckles* Well done. I need to get off my ass and slay a few trolls myself. I can't have the young un show me up.

    Yes, Siege needs support. Some things we will not agree upon, that is a given. Voicing your opinion is one thing and what these forums are here for, personal fights... keep 'em in game.

    Take his innitiative and follow his lead, It will make this place a much more enjoyable place for all. No sense in banning anyone, the less people here the worse off we are in the long run. Id just delete trolling posts and see how it works out after a few weeks. If it doesnt work than start handing out infractions and make this place more of a ghost town. (Im not trying to tell ya how to do your job because I think you do a fine job, Its just suggestion to help build the community and make it a better place for all. )

    Unfortunatly, that is not how it is going to go down. I don't have time to read every thread and post. I will take a quicker more sure way to end the trolling and personal attacks. The community will be better off.

    Let's keep up the fight folks. The more "squeaky" we are and the more we stay in their faces, the less they can just ignore Siege.

    but........the more you annoy people the less they're inclined to listen.

    Strike a balance, remind them, don't annoy.

    oh and don't be tempted by the thread necromancy of a bored and/or drunk troll.

    Please just get rid of the faction items on Siege. They have only served to kill factions on a shard where it was still fun and those items have caused nothing but trouble.

    From the people I have talked to though....SP had some major problems before faction arties. Problem is, AoS, SE, and this new expansion are coming about with Production shards in mind, but the changes are still applied to SP, and there is the problem. The faction arties were brought about to level the playing field, same as the replicas. DEVs didn't care if people joined factions, that is nearly a decade old system, why give a hoot now? They cared they were getting complaints of dupers having access to LT guard sashes, and vine cords, and Gladiator Collars, etc. With faction arties, they can let Joe Schmo have an elite suit, unfortunately for us, they increased the silver cost and we can't insure the items. I play mostly on production and I assure you, faction arties were not meant for SP.

    The problem was created when Goodguy started his one man quest to make the items cost 5x as much as prodo. This encouraged afk silver farming and led to the high cost of sell backs. Then came the trashing of suits, which is a bit our(by our I mean everyone involved) fault, but honestly would it be that big of a deal if rebuilding your suit cost 10k silver rather than 50k? It was a good way for people to get good gear and ensure most people were begining the race from the same starting block. Did it necessarily have to be done within the faction system so they weren't available to non- factioners? Probably not, but I guess I'm kind of a purist. To me there should be a definitive winner and loser in a competition, and they guy having to sit out the rest of the fight for 20 minutes (or at least fight in a diminished capacity) has lost this particular encounter.

    It may be a necro'd thread, but in this case, it's still applicable. . .It must be a problem if we're still talking about it 4 months later

    1 man quest? HA dont blame that **** on me, i created only 1 thread about faction silver cost on siege and plenty of other people put their two cents in.

    Plus, you guys really show your tramminess if you're complaining that these SUPER UBER ridiculous faction suits take to long to farm silver for.

    Do you realize how many hours/days/months it would of taken in the past to farm up that much **** up? and you're complaining about 10 hours of working now?

    you want to get a SUPER UBER suit in 2-3 hours speedy? damn bro, just go to insurance shards and quit trammizing siege with your trammie attitude and playstyle. For real speedy, you're a **** poor replacement for legitmate siege players that have left and deserted siege.

    it reminds me of sammy helms/ember legs, blessed arti hats, and plenty of other gimp **** that we ALL cheered for when they removed it because it balanced ****.

    Minimalism works best for siege. Giving everyone everything and then sayin "there now you're all even" doesnt work.

    Then why did we get AoS, Samurai Empire and Mondains Legacy? Why do we have customizable houses, item properties, artifacts, soul stones, powerscrolls, peerless and the like?

    ...?

    This is not a classic shard. This shard is a no trammel and no item insurance shard.

    While I too would love it if they added a classic shard to UO, which would be oldschool. This shard is NOT oldschool.

    Sorry to burst your bubbles.

    Agreed.

    I don't mind the customizable houses, But I wish they would take away the lock down feature and give us house keys again...THAT would be old school, and so much fun! Keep your valuables in the bank and a strong box at the house.

    We got all that garbage because ea/myth doesnt wanna spend the time or resources to keep are shard unique or anything for that matter...if you noticed they been "trammelizing" more every year so you cant even say its a non trammel shard, ya we dont have trammel but there bringing EVERYTHING besides trammel here...This was suppose to be a veteran server...the other problem is 95% of the true sp population left years ago and the majority of the server is now people from trammy servers bringing trammy ideas and the like here...so its sorta like rotting from the inside out...i could go on and on about sp but honestly whats the point because its obviously better than it was 9 years ago right?Wrong, and development is a key downfall and when that happens you lose everything...and just like to add one more think about the rp community that sp doesnt have anymore too,ya theres a rp'er here and there but the rp left sp long ago which was sorta my whole rotting from the inside out point...which puts us to where we are right now a ghosttown...
