TOP FIVE WORST THING IN UO

Discussion in 'UHall' started by RavenWinterHawk, Mar 25, 2010.

  1. To kill time.
    What are the 5 worst things in uo.

    No order just list them. Maybe Ill tally them. Only rule... 10 word to describe each one of your five items. No books.

    Mine

    1. Pet-Balls
    2. Insurance or at least how stupidly cheap it is
    3. Static spawns in this day and age
    4. Attaching PvP to lands vs. toggle on characture
    5. Wasted land that could be spawned up made interesting

    4. The whining and complaining on Stratics.
    5. The soul sucking, money grubbing, pathologically pitiless and incoherently incompetent EA corporate management.

    1. Removal of stat loss and guard whacks for reds in towns.
    2. Failure to have Peerless or Champs in all dungeons
    3. Failure to make T2A in Tram relevant.
    4. Failure to continue making fishing and treasure hunting lucrative.
    5. People in game thinking they deserve everything for little to no effort.
     
  7. 1) AoS/item based gameplay
    2) The so-called "enhanced" client
    3) Eyesore custom houses/neon colored garbage
    4) Lack of any real risk thanks to Tram ruleset and insurance
    5) The scripters that cause the absurd amount of gold in the economy, and by extension the ridiculous inflation that comes with it.

    Skills that take too long to raise through "normal" or "fun" game play.

    Game content that encourages scripting (community collections, Heartwood quests, gathering resources).

    Anti-scripting measures that usually penalize non-cheating players to a greater degree than they penalize cheaters.

    Lack of thorough testing before adding or changing content.

    Incomplete/out-of-date official game documentation (publish/patch notes, official website, game fiction).

    5)Vets that have no idea how to play the rest of the game if it has nothing to do with pvp.
     
  14. I like it just the way it is.

    I like to comment on your choices as they are opposite of mines.
    1)I like AOS
    2)I like the enhanced Client then again I liked KR and 3d.
    3)I like custom housing and neon colors more variety in a dull world
    4)I love trammel and insurance. Suits my playstyle perfectly.
    5)Those are dupers not scripters. Dupers generate gold out of nothing which increases inflation.After that gold only exchanges hands back and forth.
     
  17. Number five had to many words. Im not sure what you meant. Could you sum it up in 10 words.:lol:
     
  18. BadManiac

    BadManiac Guest

    1. The completely broken loot scale
    2. Lack of content below max skills
    3. Community Collections
    4. Runic Crafting
    5. The fact that so many game systems are so broken that the majority of players have to use third party automation tools to enjoy the game at all

    • Trammel/Felucca split as a solution for player griefing.
    • Static content (mostly spawns).
    • Lack of creature AI; low-level monster AI.
    • Lack of modern high-quality graphics.
    • Too many landmasses with loo few interesting content.

    I also hate liars. This is a lie. No one "has to" cheat. They choose to cheat, many do not. It's a choice they make, and no one forces them to do anything. They don't need to cheat to compete and the game design doesn't "force" them to cheat. Lies, lies and more lies...
     
  21. Good for you. But shouldn't this be posted in a thread called "Top 5 Best Things in UO"?

    It just goes to show that there are multiple playstyles and preferences out there...but no choices for any of us that don't like the same things UOKaiser likes.

    *looks at "too many landmasses with too few interesting content"*

    *looks at signature with two travel/content related sites*

    *looks up the word "Irony"*

    He made a valid point. Some of these "worsts" are very personal to folks and not reflective of the hundreds of thousands of players out there -- and that pay for the same game you do and thus have just as strong an opinion.

    As to the Origin-al point: my worsts:

    No strong support for player-generated questing;
    Irregular infusions of new, interesting content;
    No supported linking of player housing to make larger entities (towns, cities, keeps, etc.)
    Maps are pretty much static after creation...
    No substantial changes to music and sounds since inception.

    After 12 years, you'd think we'd have 3 or 4 ALBUMS of UO songs and arrangements, but Nooooooo.

    1.) Lack of periodic content
    2.) Great system concepts with lousy implementations
    3.) Merged pvp/pvm servers(should be separate)
    4.) Inability to add good systems found in other games because people cry.
    5.) Poeple that cry about things other people do or have.

    Yours was too similar to opposite of things I like so i had to post it well exceptnumber 5. I also posted what I didn't like before it to go with the topic.
    The closest you get to your choices is siege or freeshards. Unless they make a classic shard that is the only alternative for your playstyle. I was sad when pub 16 hit and aos but I adjusted and liked it I did stop pvp like I used to but It suited my PVM,crafting side nicely. I used to be pretty good in PVP. These days I can still hold my own but I won't categorize me good enough to get a name for myself anymore.

    Pretty much what everyone has said..

    ExCEPT stratics..for the Mods are the best in the west..and they put up with enough BS from all of us and they do it on there own time...The must either be mad or drunk :p

    Ok Enough butt kissing there :p hehehehehe

    seriously tho...My thing would be this..

    The simple things:

    The worse part is NO UPGRADES to Dawns music box.....

    The worse part is alot of my friends who have left for greener pastors..and are loving the greener pastors.

    The worse part is being able to talk to a red..without him attack me..or his buddies showing up for an easy kill..

    The worse part is people complaing how bad AOS was..I mean seriously its been HOW MANY YEARS NOW?

    1) The facet split, without creating another server that was still true to the original format.
    2) The mishandling of Siege.
    3) The implementation of AoS, and the arms race that ensued from it.
    4) The mishandling of the enhanced clients, and the failure to truly utilize the power of the Gamebryo engine.
    5) EA using *A* fan site as their only means of direct communication with the player base, and not footing, or helping to foot, the bill for said site.

    (yes, the 10 word limit was broken multiple times, but there was no way to express those points without absolutes in a shorter format)

    I'ma agree with Morgan here... I mean she didn't say anything about Kaiser's choices, just stated her choices, didn't bash anyone...
     
  41. Tukaram

    Tukaram Guest

    Pretty much what Kaiser said. but let's see...

    1. The Tram/Fel split instead of separate servers.
    2. To entice 2D'ers they keep changing 3D and now EC to look more like 2D (It won't attract them)
    3. Most skill gain is too fast (except my Pally has Parry stuck at 108.8 for 3 years.)
    4. A lot of monsters cast way too much.
    5. Not enough spawn in open areas, too much in housing areas.

    But mostly what Kaiser said. :)

    Hey mods...ever hear of a thing called RnF? This stuff here is just a repeat of the same negativity...over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over. There is nothing constructive about the whole damn thread lol.

    lol I'll bite

    1. Moving Shot -- Mana Cost too low. Damage while running is gimp.
    2. Egg Bombs -- Stealthers are already lame enough.
    3. Drop Variables -- All artifacts/special items should drop directly in pack.
    4. Mini-Spawn Bosses -- Terrible loot, RNG gives next to nothing chance.
    5. Area Peacemake -- Continues to be a reason I hate bards.

    1. Macro-users.
    2. Speedhack.
    3. Enhanced client.
    4. Cheap insurance.
    5. Many bugs.
     
  49. Constructive? Come on. Seems like there are some key points hit on by many different people.

    Now Ill give you, if you been around strats a long time, you already know this. But there are new players and if I decide to tally this, it would be constructive.

    But only as constructive as the information is used.

    Give me a break...

    1) if they werent reading before I highly doubt they are reading now.
    2) this same crap is rehashed in a half dozen threads on the first two pages
    3) crap like this is allowed to stay while information about the next patch is moved to test (where not many people look)

    again, this is nothing but a stealth RnF flame...you know it...I know it.
