With Va'lis' departure from UO. UP needs to reevaluate it's position. We are currently in an Alliance that is now just us and a guild of alts from CoD to the best of my knowledge. We have absolutely no control over highlights currently and are only high lighted to CoD and PGoH. Nothing I have stated above is an Opinion it is all truth and starting from this point on I will state my opinion and the words of those I've spoken with. We've lost HL's with all of the yewish guilds, S^S, RoH, Rose, and I'm probably missing some. I believe this is a major loss and it doesn't do the community any good for us to stay in the position we are in now. As a member and current holder of The United Pirates I want the opinions of the members as I admit bias in wanting to quit the alliance to get back the High Lights we've lost and I can not see any conceivable reason not to do so but I am only one member and UP is as much your guild as it is mine. I've talked to Trinsac and Pike, both of who gave me there opinion which I will sum up below. After stating what I stated above Trinsac agreed with my view on the situation. After explaining to Pike why I was asking the members explaining I felt bias and that I was looking for peoples opinions he stated that he would do the same thing if the OvC wasn't kicking off by now due to lack of members and that we could always pick it back up if it started picking up at any time in the future. I do assume that whole system will still be open in the future if it stays in place. In summation I UP needs the opinions of the Members to decide it's fate it is currently heading towards leaving the Chaos alliance and reinstating High Lights with the rest of the community. If you do have a word for staying in the Chaos Alliance Please state a reply as your opinions are important to the fate of UP, I'd also like to know if you agree with this or if you have other motives to want us to leave.
