Something negative... what's your most disliked thing about UO?

    My favorite thing about uo is the amount of cheating im allowed to do everyday, which makes me tons of money. I literally play uo 3 hours a week but im logged in 21 hours of everyday. Its one of the best games in the world. Thanks EA!!!

    Honestly I'm probably here for the old days when Sosaria was a dangerous place filled with thieves and murders... When everything was simple (equipment), yet complex (the world itself)... Now those two roles seem to have switched. We now have complex equipment (crafting, artifacts, farming) and a simple world (99% empty/useless except high end dungeons)... I feel UO has lost much of its glamor... But perhaps that was bound to happen regardless.

    High end PvM bores me in virtually any game... Even if I were here for PvM, I'd go insane. It seems many other games (including a few MMORPGs such as Guild Wars) can offer decent AI and missions that make group PvM a tactical game, not "my equipment & template is uber, so I can solo anything in this world with some proper macros."

    With that said I have yet to PvP since my return, but that is my end goal. That's why I play online games in the first game; putting my wits against other players. I guess only time will tell me if UO is the place for this, or if I should start a yahoo account and play chess all day.

    In that regard, I am somewhat bitter about the game and it's changes - sorry for bringing that here... But on a happy note, UO is still a unique game with a great world. Character customization is great; no cookie cutter warriors, mages, rangers, clerics, etc. You have the opportunity to leave your mark on the world in some way to more extent than in other games... Community is also a large part of the game, and much of the reason why many of us play weather we realize it or not.

    In the end, I'm probably here mainly because my computer is headed downhill, and until I can buy a better one, PlanetSide, Team Fortress and other more 'graphic' intense games that I enjoy do not allow me to keep competitive. Interestingly enough, though, I actually love the graphics of UO (2D); simple and clear; I'll always stand firm that graphics do not make a game, and I'll always remember UO for what it once was.

    Other than that, I enjoy the Roleplaying, I enjoy the communities, and I enjoy playing with character templates... I enjoy running around the world and seeing old sites, though it's not nearly as enjoyable now that a large part of the population has left (especially Fel where the real adventure is).

    I'll be starting a character into Faction fairly soon, which I am excited for... Aside from that, I've started up a character on Siege and am enjoying the work-up from nothing... No buying skills, no rapid gains to 50 skill, no trammel, no insurance - RoT or NoT, it's the way the game was meant to be played.

    I still wrote what I enjoy about the game, just being fair on both sides... I'm here, aren't I?

    Well, yes your here because your comp wont let you play anything else or so you said in your post.

    Read the thread title:

    "Something positive... what's your favorite thing about UO?"

    Then re-read your post and ask yourself, was my post a good contribution to the discussion?

    I would say no.

    Oh, and also I love the fact that I can do over a hundred dread runs, solo, in a month and not get a single crimson cincture, while people in my guild get them all the time. Yeah. Lame.
     
  7. I love the fact that I don't have to waste countless hours training up any kind of alchemist, blacksmith, tailor, tinker or carpenter any more since you can just get one good weapon and set of armor, insure it and never have to do worry again about re-equiping any of your characters.

    That leaves all my time to go and farm gold, artifacts and spring cleaning points to turn in for more crap that will decorate my over stuffed house to show off all the time spent collecting useless garbage so that when new players walk by my house they will fall over dead from envy at everything that I have.

    I love the locked down stuffies that I can't snuggle with.

    I love the 128 megabyte patch that always seems to need to download for KR and then when its finally finished it just crashes again.

    Oh, what new players? Haven't seen one of those in ages. Just the Young Players that are running off to Ilshenar to go and grab their 25,000 points of spring cleaning tickets...

    Hmmmm. The thing I love most are the 14 day free trial accounts, which I will run off to start one now so that I can go grab another 150,000 spring cleaning points to get another luck jewelry set and sell for around 10 million in gold to add to the millions I already have...

    Cleaned the negative feedback and made it into it's own thread.

    You are the thing I hate about UO, the scripters and cheaters that get away with it over and over and the GM's don't do squat. Exploiters in action in plain sight and nothing anyone can or will do about it.

    The arrogance of some certain people on stratics and in game that try to give you an english lesson. Or think they are above you.
