    Last event: 3-4 weeks ago, in which a "Dungeon Run" was performed, and at the end Cloaks of Silence were handed out.

    Prior Event: EM led new players around Sosaria, introducing them to the idea of Siege Perilous.

    May 2009: Naked Dungeon run through Shame

    These are the events we get. Not epic battles against hoards of monsters, not riddles, not even a PvP tournament. Please tell me it isn't so bad, and then take a look at our EM hall.

    [​IMG]

    Now not only is our hall pretty pathetic, check out the picture. "Out ran the Ettins in shame. Please, show me some ettins in shame. I'm not asking for even 2 EM's like every other shard gets. I am requesting a single, competent EM who will at least make an effort to give us a little excitement.

    So tell me, does SP deserve to have events?

    Disclaimer: This is not to say these are the only events we've had. In February last year we had a Valentine's Day event, and also a small event involving the Shadow Lords, but that was during the cloak of corruption thing, so in reality, the EM was just piggy backing another story line.

    Let's take a quick look at Chessy's event hall, shall we?


    There is more on the second floor, but I won't bother posting pictures of that. However, I could show you our Christmas decorations on Siege. For our Luna bank decorations, we got: 2 red lanterns, and 2 green lanterns. TA DA.

    Aye, December 5th, 2009.

    It is pretty sad that the paying customers on Siege dont get the same service that the paying customers on other shards get, though we pay the same amount.

    New EM please!

    If the em is Quantum he is really a very nice man. Well,I think so.

    Imho something must be wrong is why he hasn't been there.

    I hope you get events asap. All shards deserve fun.

    I don't deny he is nice. Just perhaps spread too thin, as he also does events on another shard.

    It's a stupid poll. I was tempted to vote no, just because.

    Have the events, sure...as long as the EM cannot give out anything with Mods on it.

    It is to easy to get over on the EM and way to many get given out!

    We have enough items in UO, no need for 50 +10 Stealth Cloaks!

    I thought that Quantum was primarily on a production shard, and only covering Siege until a replacement for Alcor could be found.
    Which I'm guessing hasn't happened, or Quantum inherited Siege permanently?

    When the EM showed up last for the "what to do about siege events" event, he basically said he cant do it alone, and that he had to get help from other shards to even do prescribed events (and had to be on their time tables about it too), that some ems could make stuff without an ok from the uppy ups (he was not one of these ems so he couldn't make us anything without getting it approved) and that it was basically because of our low player base that we get weak event support, and all the regular shard bleed through that is constantly messing up our rule set. And I did get the impression that he did do events on other shards. I can't remember if he said so outright, but he was making it sound like siege events were an "on his time" sort of deal.

    Which is bull**** should you ask me. But I don't blame the EM.

    I think people just vote no because they are bored, and have nothing better to do. There is no reason we should pay the same as production players for less content. If we do, I'll just cancel my accounts and save my 27$ a month.

    HAHA, nope. I'm just the siege reporter, and Quantum emails events to the siege stratics email list which I am on.

    keep it civil please. We don't know what constraints are in place but we can certainly ask that the situation on Siege be looked at and some kind of dialogue opened.

    I imagine three years after UO finally shuts down people will still be posting on stratics inviting other players to try out siege, lol.

    WOW you are oh so wrong.
    If Ian was our EM our events would not suck like they do. Honestly Quantum might be a fine person but from what I have seen he has no clue what Siege is.

    Just good to see some EM attention to Siege. As the quantity increases, so will the quality.

    Before I decided to try out Siege I went on a shard hopping tour. Trust me we have as many and if not more players as LA, Baja, Origins and Oceania.

    We just seem to hide better lol

    Haha, they didn't bring back the old EMs anyways. I don't think so, maybe like 1 of them. You can still throw me in the pool though. :p
