NOTE: If you do not fall into the above categories in any way, then you have no reason to post here. Please refrain from posting your opinions on why a strike is a bad idea. This thread is pro-strike, make an anti-thread if you must state your opinion, please. I'm personally sick of the updates and such benefiting everyone but us. I posted the following on Cal's little video announcement thread. Please read it in full and let me know if you're with me: Why couldn't this type of opinion been applied to a classic shard? Like others said, it was easily done on player servers, but the entire dev team couldn't figure out a way to please the majority of pro-classic players. I am not hardcore pro-classic shard, but I see why they're pissed. You say "the verdict on the classic shard", then say "not right now"? "Maybe" isn't a verdict. Judge: "Jury, have you reached a verdict?" Jury: "Ehhh..." A classic shard will take away from other shards? Oh, God forbid you don't slap a new color and title on an old item graphic and spoon feed it to the rares community as a "new" item, so they can turn around and sell it for $500 to some moron who will cry that they lost $500 when this crappy item gets stolen. UO is now nothing but a damn chatroom with customizable avatars. The only thing original in UO is the relationship between enemies in PvP. The actual hate two players can have for each other. Online friendships are easily faked, but the rivalry is real. PvP is ruined due to (among other things) the flood of artifacts into UO. Don't get me started on imbueing either. What's coming out soon? More armor sets? Wow keep the flood coming. Stop releasing more items into UO, it is all ya'll do and it's ruining UO. So yes, let's say "no" to a classic shard for now so we can focus on ruining UO's economy and gameplay even more. I was quitting UO, then got reeled back in by High Seas. What happened? Ya'll made ship PvP impossible due to saltpeter. But wait, there's still the Whale! Described as a "housing option" on water, SURELY this will be cool. What's that? It isn't multiple decks, and just takes up your whole screen and has a larger hold? The only way to reasonably obtain this is by purchasing it from you? Oh boy, sign me up! Sorry about the rant, but a classic shard would have been a much better endeavor than new pixels. And now Magicinia is being converted into another bank sitting option? Pathetic. I hardly log on anymore, and I'm on my last ounce of interest in this game. I propose a mass account cancellation if one of the following doesn't happen VERY soon: 1. An update to throw a bone to thieves (a fairly LARGE bone, that is). 2. A massive fix to PvP. 3. Anything to help Siege (I personally refuse to play Siege, but I think it's disgusting how much they're ignored). 4. ANY FORM of a pre-AoS shard. Help someone other than Trammel, and the Rares Community's rl pockets, or I'm done.
