    1. 150 max skill ? This was casually mentioned during the IHOC. The game is 11 yrs old and skills are still the foundation of a uo char. Asking us to gain new scrolls? and train skills 30 pts more is Absurd !

    2. Talking about balance. I believe balance is unattainable for every attempt made a new weapon or template rises to be the it item or template. Every new expansion has to have better items/ skills otherwise less expansions would be sold hurting the bottom line. Uo is about the bottom line just ask anyone who actually needed a gm. Spend the balance time fixing things we already have but do not work properly. Sometimes less is more.

    3. Stratics Forums... Does the dev team really believe the few 100 of us who post here actually are a good representation of the tens of thousands of players? This is possibly the most frightening aspect of the stratics boards to me. Note to devs you have our emails why not sent around a survey asking players what they want?

    4. This is not disturbing just going back to the idea of fixing what we have. LOOT minimum values for monster lot is not working please fix it. Lockpicking at a 100 and failing serves no purpose, do you really think we will walk away from the chest because it takes 25 tries to open? This whole concept simply adds frustration. A PVM publish would be cool a retooling if you will of all the anti virtue dungeons would be nice. How about recalling into ilsh for heavens sake. What fun is derived from running to a spot and the recalling in minutes due to the BoS nerf only to run there again? Lastly do we really get a 1000 luck from bushido if we achieve perfection it doesn't seem to be working.


    Lastly I rarely post here because I'd much rather be playing, but I have Lyme in my Central Nervous System and can't work. So I had time to blow off steam. Enjoy your playstyle and be classy San Diego
     
  2. I disagree with you on this. It seems to be working just fine as far as I've seen.

    You cant be heard if you keep your mouth shut:] Try using the feedback form on UO home site, that and posting your opinion here more often.

    emails, poll? I imagine time is a factor.

    1 - Is a terrible idea - agreed.

    2. I believe it was mention classic weapons, as in broadsword, old axes etc. They are terrible compared to the elvish weapons damage and speed. Not all of us want to be using ugly curved elven weapons. Wood armor resists can be pretty ridiculous too. Amazing that it provides more resists than metal. I'd personally like to see the old weapons more viable than they are now. I can't believe how slow the original developers made the longsword and broadsword (also go look at those artifacts for those two weapons, must be illegal to add SSI on them cause they all suck huge amounts).

    Notice I used the word us not you when refering to the forums. I wish only that the devs would try reaching more then the few here who seem to say the same thing over and over and the louder and louder so to speak.

    How do you know whether the bushido thing is working my only test area was miasma. I seem to get much better loot when I hit my luck statue to about 800 luck. I don't get squat without the extra luck activated. My tamer and mage get similiar loot at 800 luck as my bushido chars. Maybe I don't understand when the 1000 kicks in but it never seems to at miasma.

    It doesnt take that many people to represent the whole. Thats why gallup only polls 1000 people. Always fairly accurate.
