I've been chastized for playing UO like a single player game. I was raised in the years before the internet...so MMO wasn't an option for NES and SNES unless the guy was shooting ducks beside you. My first (and last) RPG wasn't until 1992, Final Fantasy 2 (4) for the Super Nintendo. I still play it sometimes. But honestly....attempting to play UO as a single player was difficult before pub 16. A lich could fry your ass...and if a healer wasn't close by....it was easy to see your bones go poof as you ran back to them on dial up. Today....a single player approach is easy. Only the very top end critters require a group. Honestly...I prefer doing stuff by myself. You avoid idiots and "cool" dudes. Was I ever short of gold or items because I played alone? Nope. Did I avoid a lot of feuding and stupid postering? Yep. Which brings me to my biggest complaints about UO. The people. From the idiot in Luna wearing a duped robe and flaunting it.....to the idiot at an event who can't seem to stop cussing.....to the tamer who can't be bothered to leave the critter I have redlined alone. Honestly...it's why I quit. Could I have formed relationships in UO? I guess. Could I have been a "guild guy"? Probably. Why didn't I? Well....there's this insidious thing called greed that blows all relationships (in game) completely up. It takes different forms....like the scripter....the duper.....the speeder....and invariably...all these activities are amplified when a group decides they need to run nothing but spawns and take over the game! Then....the postering starts! I killed you! You cheat! You run cams! It's pathetic....and I have no desire to be involved. So...I've never been involved. Jealousy is rampant....and accusations are thrown around like tinsel. It's not real life....but some seem to think it is. Anyway....there's not a solution for these problems....because you can't take the more base emotions out of people. Unless you like single player games? Anyway....my favorite moment EVER in this game was getting a vanq silver katana off a lich lord (looted from some player, no doubt) then being killed four times trying to get it out of Deceit. I think I still have that wep...not recognizable in it's new form....but I still got it.
