    I had an interesting Conversation this morning in Luna. I was talking to a "Stratics Reporter" about How TB is ruining factions. Let me just set the record straight here for all those who dont know. First and Foremost, for us in TB towns ARE important, The towns is what factions are about, always has been always will be. If you are in factions and not fighting for the cities whats the point? Second, Points are important for recognition. TB as of last week had very minimal points. After a Week of Defending(and corrupting) we now have a ballpark of 30 points, which will only go up from this point. But you would think this success when you are fighting a guild like WREK, but No, they turn it into a Negative, saying we are destroying factions. Well, As The Commanding Lord of TB, I say we are doing something right. They want a fight come in the castle, break down our defense(which by the way they cant without cheating and using blues) and force us to fight you. If WREK is as good as they say then our defense should be nothing to them. When WREK went to COM and was using Non faction reds to fight us, did we complain, Nope we fought around it. When they bagball their bridge all the way did we complain, Nope, We found a way to get through it. When they raid us with 3 times our numbers do we give up, Nope, we get out of Stats and get sigs back. We are the only True factioners on the shard, the rest are posers who just want points, so they can say the rest suck. But in my honest opinion factions has never been about One person being Elite, or being able to drop 4 people, its about Team work and holding sigs, and now that we have found a way to do that successfully, we are ruining factions. LOL............... We welcome lots of PvP its what we do, But we will always hold cities, we will continue to struggle for the towns if need be. We will continue to play factions for factions.

    sincerely,
    Hatesphere(CL of TB)

    I admit it is kinda hard to get through the corridor to you guys, but heck it would be very boring if I could stealth right in and steal the sigs back! Congrats on your fine teamwork and success!

    On a lighter note your order please, will that be cakes, cookies or pizza for delivery from Grace?
     
  3. Arabella, don't you just love finding good places to hide in that big, spacious castle?

    Ohhhh, cake please Arabella [​IMG] .... and yes, it is a blast to follow an enemy faction member right through their fields and into their base... LOL.

    I totally agree with you and have even switched factions and started stealing from my former factioneers (in the past) to create more of a challenge for them. If there aren't defenses and raids and things aren't made more difficult and then solutions found and stubborn lil thiefs like us ... well, wouldn't that all be boring now [​IMG]

    *looks at Hatesphere* .... so what is this about talking to a stratics staff member and TB ruining factions and all? Granny needs to know ... [​IMG]

    Well yes Tinks, some unknown "stratics reporter" spoke to me in Luna saying our defense style "ruins factions". So we defended from further out, and they still couldnt get through. See the point here isnt this annonymous person. The problem is WREK expects us to go to Yew Gate, and just freely hand them points, so they can be rulers of the universe. Anywho they still cant beat our latest defenses, so Friday will be the next big hold lets see if they can beat us tommorrow.

    Cakes for Miss Tinkz! I have my grandkids this weekend, so I am not for sure how much UO time I will get but you can bet your bottom dollar, I will be there!

    Come on Shadow Lords, I know your out there lurking, I need some help! Even if I do get the sigs I will just be able to reset them. Step away from Yew gate and do some PVP that means something. Same with all you other factions, come lets get this going again!
     
  8. Arabella, I'll be back on GL sometime in the future, don't know when yet. YAD's on a "world tour" of factions and my main faction characters are a bit scattered at the moment. (Have made them some clones too...yeah, more remove trap training.) Someday I'll be active in factions on GL again; don't know yet if it will be in YAD or KDL. I do miss everyone on GL though and it was kind of bittersweet Friday and Saturday evenings running around the crazy side of Moonglow on GL seeing so many names I remember from factions last year. I was happy to see that a lot of people I remember are still playing; the names just weren't orange to me! Hehe.

    It was defintely crazy in Moonglow on Friday and Saturday. I hope when you all make over here, things will get going again in factions. Everyone seems to be quitting as usual.

    Well, Hatesphere, guess I need to talk with you "in person" a bit more ... I will see you at the next defense or you can ICQ me at 76943888.

    Arabella... nice job on the sigs and encouraging people to get in the fun [​IMG] ... hope your hubby is over the fact that enemy faction members can talk, have fun, be friends and still KILL each other (or try to in my case). [​IMG]

    Thank you Tinkz, I am still in shock that I was able to walk into the base and get those sigils, then take those towns. Next time, I know not to reset Brit, if it is corrupted! Thats what happens though when there isnt enough information out there and no one is around for me to ask a question about factions.

    Dirty knows that he was just being grumpy, he also knows I chat alot in game no matter what I am doing LOL!

    As far as people coming back into factions maybe after the event on Alt is over, it will pick up again. When Tina and her guild stops by on their world tour, that should bring back even more! Tina what a cool sig you have [​IMG]

    Well, we all have characters on GL either in factions already or destined for it, but we're not quite organized yet and still focused on some other shards. You never know when we might just pop up and say hi, though!

    Yes, I love my new sig. A guildmate made it for me. Tried to talk him into making me a few more, but he said no when he found out I could probably do it myself but have been too lazy to learn to use the software I've already got. Men!

    Well there will be a warm welcome from me when you come back tina Cookies and Milk or Pizza and Ale?

    Today TB left the base wide open, of course my itchy fingers had to steal the sigil!

    [​IMG]

    Since I didnt have to work today, I had alot of time to plan and implentment my defense.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    After all that work I just had to rest with some cookie and milk!

    [​IMG]

    Imtop (sorry for the name misspelled), came in and got me of course and ruined all my hard work and i missed the screenshot of that of course. But he was kind enough to gate me out and back to work I go. But did you really have to mess up my defense! Just to find out what sigil I was holding!! I would of just told ya, had you asked LOL!

    Well those pesky TB, ruined my fun. I had to leave for a bit and look what they did!

    After a short scrimmage at TB base, Hatesphere dropped a couple of his bows to Riddick, which were returned to him. Thank you Riddick for doing the right thing and showing honor.

    Pizza and Ale for you Hate in a couple of days [​IMG]

    TB ruins factions?

    I know I haven't been on in a while, but it was my impression that TB was the only one playing factions, while the others ran around Yew gate.

    No, no my friends. The dev's ruined factions. Or are about to. 7 characters per account allowed in factions? You can host your own 4-way faction war. 4 accounts, 7 characters on each. Yay.

    Shoot, with soulstones you wont even have to train up all 7. Just train a couple, swap skills and suits after each dies. When all 7 die, hop on 2nd account while you get your first 7 out of stat. Awesome dude.

    What fun we had yesterday battling back and forth with TB! I finally gave up and logged at 9:30 last nite, so not for sure who keep the sigil. I have screen shots and I know others were taking them. Watch for a new story line.

    Great fun and Great job to everyone!
