That wasn't there before! (Arena)

Discussion in 'UHall' started by Lord GOD(GOD), Jul 31, 2010.

  1. I'm guessing this is the new duelling arena we've been hearing about from the cliocs.

    Its... through the cave North of Minoc. Next to Reaper Valley. Or on the way to where the Khaldun spawn would be (but in Tram), if any of those help.

    Saw those on both sides earlier in the week. I didn't think to mention it because I have been gone for about a year and had no idea when they were added.

    The one on ocllo is real buggy so be careful. I have found several spots where you can get stuck and have to teleport out.

    Hey Cal, how about setting it up so it auto-reveals & auto-dispels in there.

    The one in the lost lands is also rather buggy...

    But it really looks nice.

    Know what's really funny? While I was there I noticed that animals and monsters don't know it's even there. They walk right though it as if it doesn't exist. Was really kinda funny. And another thing I noticed in the EC anyone else using it seemed to be inside and underneath it. But my character appeared to be standing right on it fine. Very strange.

    But it looks really neat. Whoever designed it as far as how it looks did an AWESOME job.

    I only looked at the one in the Lost Lands of Tram.

    This arena idea is fantastic and will end a lot of debates of who's good and who isn't. VERY long overdue and looking forward to what mechanics will be linked to arena fighting.

    Do you honestly believe the "forum warriors" will actually back up their claims of Uber-l33t-ness in these arenas? :lol:

    The whole idea of arena fighting, a test of player skill and strategy if you will, is pointless unless there is a specific cap on item properties, or you can only duel with basic weapons and armour. Fighting someone "richer" or "poorer" when it comes to item properties is no challenge. All that becomes apparent is how much better kitted out a player is, or can afford to be.

    PvP in UO is a joke now. Is it any wonder that this side of the game is so sparsely populated these days? Those claiming UO has "the best" PvP in an MMO are sorely mistaken, whilst they also prance around in their shiny outfits.

    This is coming from someone who's main focus of play wasn't particularly PvP, but who lost interest when the game became item-centric and any form of skill or balance flew out the window.

    So sure, they look nice and are well presented, but the current game mechanics don't really lend themselves to anything particularly skilled coming from them.

    Some of us (me) have been waiting for this for ages!

    I read it in the clich thing notes about a month ago and have been waiting for its introduction.

    This is gna be great, no more dueling / 1v1's on wrong roof for some pop shot archer to come stat the loser! No more Ganking in duels, no more pets!(well in 1v1's not the field)

    It's likely because it doesn't exist on the server yet. They had to publish to the client so people on Origin can see it, but the rest of our servers don't know it's there yet, basically.

    A minor fault in the testing process that I'm willing to live with to let Origin play with it for a few days.

    :( Say goodbye to another Evil Mage spawn camp site with the arena there. that's where I got my first (and apparently last) pair of blood tiles.

    Lucitus, learn to play another template other than enhanced client running dexxer, seriously, does it not get boring?

    I'm just glad whomever designed the arena wasn't also the one who designed New Haven.

    New Haven is absolutely the single worst put together city in all of UO, and does nothing to assist new players due to its poor layout.

    The arena, however, is charming.

    except for the previously noted holes in the floor of the seating areas. But they do look cool and I am excited about their purpose.

    Oh this must be the Producer Thunder Dome Challenge!!! This only happens every 13years!!! I heard the UO team gets thrown into the arena and whoever is the last person standing gets to be the Producer for a day. They get to kick Cal out of his office and demote him to the Butler position. The winner gets to boss him around, while relaxing in his chair with their feet all over his desk!!!

    :popcorn:

    (What? You said I had to wait for the announcements. This is what I do when I wait, so it's your own fault.)

    And Spell Plague, An Mani, An Mani, An Mani, is more interesting? Also strange is that i now see most of the players as archers or mysticers. Havent seen a dexxer for a long time?

    But iam too old for this, play alone, there are also no players out there and no good guild, who can catch us.

    But nice new template Enhanced Client running dexxer cool! I think a dexxer who stands still is dead ;) but i think thats whats you want 2 hits dead, wow how interesting ;).

    I just don't get this Spell Plague an mani an mani fear. Hell, if someone manages to kill me with just spell plague, magic arrow and netherbolt on field I will freaking eat my socks.

    Sorry but all the good pvpers are pretty equal as far as suit set up goes. Since you claim not to be overly versed in PvP then I'm not seeing a reason to post this since it's pretty inaccurate.

    The old city was great and could have been used for new player tutorials. What ever happened to that basement when accounts were first created? That would have been the perfect newby quest adapted dungeon with additions. I miss repeating the undead slayer quest repeatedly with new characters just to see what kind of slayer I could get :(
