Thinking about comming back - questions

Discussion in 'UHall' started by FoodStamp [GL], Oct 10, 2011.

  1. Had to take some time off from the game; thinking about comming back. I've got a few questions first:

    1.) How is the situation with scripters and hackers?
    2.) General chat - is it still full of rude trouble makers?

    thanks.

    1.) They are still around, but it has been worse in the past.
    2.) That really depends on the shard - on some it is quiet and civil on others it's still a trash talk fest.

    1. The only reason their are less scripters is because uo is dieing
    2. If you play a shard like Atl trash talk is all you will see

    1. dunno
    2. On Europa general chat is 99% trashtalking.

    The obvious solution would be to let players subscribe to more than one chat channel per time but... well, there's no need to say it.

    Catskills is below average on the trash talkers. But there are still some.

    Origin - 99% free of trash talk and very little scripters if any at all.
    Napa - not much trash talk till late in the evening scripters are pretty much in the past
    Catskills - 20% trahs talk but its sporatic, scripters here too are not seen much
    Siege - 1% trash talk , scripters....... whats a scripter here for death?
    Oceania - 10% trash talk but its on aussie time not usa and as for scripters... there are days I am the only one on shard.... it seems
    Atlantic - 85% trash talk but there are some clear times too scripters well it is the last area for true scripting but I have seen little of it
    Sonoma - 90% trash talk yes its more then atl.. Your better off not turning on chat. scritpers unknown activity

    Quite honestly if your worried about ether there are some valuable things you can do to avoid it
    1. dont use chat unless the guild has a channel, but most use vent or teamspeak
    2. with many shards experencing low populations (atl and a few others are not in this group) scripters are few and far between. Now unless your looking at pvp scripting then its a matter of opinion if one is or not.

    Your welcome back if you want to rejoin the uo race. No matter what shard your from or go to we welcome you back.

    seems a rather inflammatory tone to kick this thread off.

    theres always ignore or dont turn it on.

    chessy can get pretty rank but most have nothing else to do while they wait out stat.

    No offense but IMO if you are the type of player that worries about what everyone else is doing instead of just going out and doing one of the 10 million fun things to do in Uo then maybe you should not come back.

    You can play and have fun or you can be obsessed & consumed by what you think others are doing and have no fun and be bitter.

    Every single playstyle in UO(pvm or pvp or rp or whatever)is still alive & well and most importantly can be done without any problem at all(as always)

    Sure there are cheaters and griefers and all-around asswipes. That has always been and will always be in any game. But you can still do whatever you want 24/7 without their interference.

    You wanna tame? Go somewhere & tame. If a griefer shows up simply move to another one of the 12 billion taming spots in Uo.
    You wanna farm resources/ingredients. Same as above.
    Sux that everything you wanna do isnt instantaneous or perfect but thats life.

    I personally think that the Luna bank(or anywhere the bored masses decide to hang out & do nothing these days)is the most distasteful place in the game. More griefers in the Luna bank these days then anywhere else on shard(including myself on occasion)

    IMO anytime you have a large group of people in one place with no purpose you are just asking for bs or trouble.
    You wanna sell something? Thats cool. Sell it and move on. Dont stand in Luna bank for hours spamming your items all the while causing trouble by making comments on what everyone else is doing. Thats what these boards are for :)

    So basically... you're telling him to play this game solo and not care...

    wahahahaha....

    I like the "rp or whatever"

    You are also playing a role...

    They should hire you... as official UO brigadier...

    nothing to see... please move on and don't think... yes thats it... follow the golden road...

    Good Post, Goldberg.

    This fellow is completely wrong. On Catskills all our general chat is is people talking so much empty smack.

    Hmmm.. I'm on every day. Sometimes I'll see some talking going on for an hour or so but then it dies off..

    Maybe I just miss some of it cause I'm busy playing.. :)

    Don't worry, that guy doesn't play UO any more. His only place is to troll the boards. He's kinda like one of those global chatters that most of us choose to ignore :)

    1. Hacking is still around.
    2. Chesapeake is pretty good in that department. Most trashing comes during prime time hours, even then players can be ignored.

    Yeah thats right... don't worry... move on there is nothing to see here...

    its all cool tho...

    I didn't receive any invite to your fan club, its a one way thing only I presume ?

    Mr. Neutron BOMB... bigger than reality has come to save the day, oh please.

    The truth is, those guys are futile and useless...

    join the game, then ask questions.

    Noone can tell you if you wanna play or not, besides this is more suited to another board.

    The OP dosen't even have a "subject of discussion" I can add unto. There is no issue about gameplay to discuss, this is the

    bleh...
    =
    thousanth time someone posts to ask these questions, if he only bothered to search the boards he would have found already millions of pages of reading ; heck he could spend his life reading back in time on that subject.

    You guys want to defend someone else, learn to defend your opinion first and stop confusing it for argument ; no sophism is going to help here !
