    Was Medic the one in the background who asked "Do you guys plan on doing anything with speedhackers in the near future." Jeremy or whoever was there said "No." And i heard a muffled "Yes!" Im sure that was accompanied by a fist pump.

    LOL! Pansy boy because I didnt go to a gaming convention? Sorry bud, but Friday night my wife and I had a grill out with a bunch of friends and we hosted a bags and Hold'Em tournament. I have to say it was much more enjoyable than any UO town hall.
    So, compared to when I went to a convention in 04' in Indy where there was over 75 people...how many were at that one? 10?

    P.S. Thanks for remembering what I look like from my pic...you must have really been paying attention or, as I said, there was hardly anyone there. Did homeless people attend just to get out of the cold?

    I am not going to name anybody specifically but I love how the dev's spoke briefly on the hackers/cheaters currently on GL and how funny it is that a handful of the guilty parties went to the townhall..

    Ultimate Resisting Spells Fix:
    If you don't agree with this fix, your a character that only knows the new uo...not what it once was. You used to actually resist all types of magic based off this now useless skill. Example, an ebolt with 100 resist (yes 100 was the cap then) would do 12 damage. That same ebolt with 0 resist would do 30+.

    Your highest possible resist with 0 magic resist would be 35. Your suits resist could not pass 35 unless you have magic resist. Once you achieve 100 magic resist, your suits total is fully " unlocked ". Example, your suits actual resists add up to exactly 70s across the board, if you have 0 magic resist your at 35, if you have 100 magic resist it is 70. At 105 resist your natural resist cap is 71, at 110 resist your cap is 72, at 115 its 73 cap, at 120 its 74.
    Does that make sense to everyone? You actually will have a benefit of having resist....what a brilliant idea!

    Regarding the 100% legitimate pairs of inquisitor's resolution. They spawn every 4 months (not sure on exact time), that means in the course of one total year there is 3 pair per shard...multiply the number of shards by four, then take that number and multiply by how many years Doom has been out.....see the problem? Theres that many pair on Great Lakes alone! Can the non-existent GMs do anything? they claim no due to xsharding...my solution? WIPE all the quizzies out of the game and start over, just like they did with the vine cord sandals, only these actually re-spawn after time!

    Punk buster anyone? I'd gladly give up a small percentage of my current connection (DSL) if its using that to check my connection. This will solve MANY problems across all shards.

    Trapped boxes, how can you actually trap a box if your not very skillful at it? There can actually be two possible fixes for this.
    Example one:
    Scale the number of uses a trapped box has based on its crafter
    Example two:
    Your only able to trap a box at GM tinkering

    Either of these two fixes will balance the multi skilled dexxers, and attempt to restore " old school " templates back into the game.

    To hopefully clarify the flag issue with followers. Lets say were inside fire, your grey for whatever reason. I flag on you, chasing ensues until the original two minute timer passes. I then summon a rev/pixie/pet to attack you, since its now " entering the fight " and didn't flag within the first two minute timer, I now flag grey. If my follower or myself hits you and you end up dying, you can count me.

    Specials on archers. Running shot....your on a mount and moving attempting to shoot an arrow. It only makes sense that your accuracy isn't still capped! Dev's defiantly need to look into this.

    If you want a player-base to return to the game. Address ALL of this post and I can guarantee that you will see quite a few vet players return. We do not want to see more patches involving plants/addons/trammy crap....pvp is unique in UO, always has and will be. Return that to us, and you will reap benefits.

    event meeting was fun for sure met some people had some decent food but none the less it was a really good time.

    as for the asking if speed haxing was going to be fixed - nah i didn't ask it and i really could careless if it was or was not fixed lol always something in the game thats more patheic than speeding programs: aka scripts that do all the easy **** that i guess people can't do still like "taking less than a second to hit your bandage self button or pot button " ... enough said.


    but hopefully somethings that we brought up in the game will be fixed and changes will be made. later

    LOL, evidently someone must have said something about speedhacking. I wasnt listening to the townhall at all, I just brought up something to get you going which it evidently worked. Guess what? I made my reply on SATURDAY! My guests were over on FRIDAY! Pay the **** attention, lol. You probably would like to soon forget an image of pure happiness between a father and his son. Did your uo daddy smack you around too much?

    Cialis please channel some of your "board warrioring skills" into teamwork for UOD...you guys certainly did not have it in the despise you lost to me 1v3. Although, Fury ran like a champ since he absolutely dreads going into stat loss. :stretcher:

    This is simply stupid. you should not nerf those that dont have it. Instead reward those that do.

    I am with you they should nerf them all and start over.

    Never going to happen with the number of people cheating today. EA knows many of the cheaters would be gone if they could not cheat.

    I say eliminate trapped boxes as they really have absolutely no purpose other than in pvp. Make people go back to using pouches with the damage they deal out.

    If your oppoenent if grey to you he should be grey to a follower.

    I agree accuracy should go down if you strike while moving but for every melee skill. Riding full speed on horseback is not conducive to a sword fight anymore than to distance weapons.

    Has anyone on these forums ever tried shooting a bow or swinging a sword while riding a horse at top speed?

    Also, when riding a horse full speed (if it is in fact harder to swing or shoot) wouldn't it be just as difficult to dodge an attack?

    If we're trying to get realistic in melee it's impossible for us to even begin to fathom the skills of those in the dark ages/medieval times. First off, nobody alive spends 12+ hours a day riding horseback and fighting with a sword, which they did back in the day. Also, for the majority, when comparing raw strength/stamina they wtf pwn us compared to today. So, riding full speed on horse back and sword fighting was probably second nature to many of the skilled warriors during those days. I also read somewhere that you were considered a weakling archer if you couldnt daily fire a bow with 100lb pull. Maybe that was on History channel, i cant remember.

    Isn't you board name the same name for a medication that treat Erectile Dysfunction? For being a young man of aproximately 17-20 to have a Erectile Dysfunction means it sucks to be you

    We dont have to go back quite that far. American indians were amazing archers from horse back while moving however there accuracy and the accuracy of the white man shotting back at them suffered while moving. So should the accuracy of the melees in game

    LOL - I haven't heard a mom joke since about the 5th grade.

    Mom jokes aren't very funny to start and pretty pathetic when you consider some people on this board have moms in their 60's and 70's.

    Sorry i missed it again this year guys, i told you why. :( It was atleast fun talking to you and toxic in your vent for a few cialis, but medic calling me out in your vent was just funny. "sieg what are you trying to do over here, scam more people?" haha priceless, as if i've EVER scammed anyone. Its no secret i'm still very good friends with several uod and wish them the best of luck in their expansion. :) I'll hopefully see you guys next year! Sorry toxic, i know your pissed we've never hung out :p
