    I don't think you should be able to get 120 powerscrolls during school hours. People are at school and other people are working champs and getting 120 scrolls when nobody is around to compete with them.

    Why not just allow people to get 120 scrolls offline and forget the whole online gameplay?

    On Europa today, my figures show 10 champs were worked from 9:00am GMT to 3pm, and during peak time there's usually less than that.

    Don't worry about it. Obviously included in Mervyn's definition of a 'Skiver' are all house wives/husbands, night shift workers, visiting players in other time zones, retired gentlefolk, genuinely ill persons and anyone else who wasn't at school when he was.

    This thread is a little pointless.. could be someone on Holiday from work, Could be a mum or dad who stay at home with their kids and the kids were napping?

    It doesn't mean it was children who are meant to be at school/college

    The point is,

    It is harder to get a scroll in peak time than offpeak, yet the rewards are the same.

    Try single-players. Other characters only play when you do.

    Actually the point is,

    The game is 23 hours (downtime is included) 7 days a week. Its not regulated to one persons set times. Thats the freedom of UO. If you are not on and you miss something that is not the games fault or the players that are on.

    What you may determine peak time and what I may determine peak time will differ. Peak time to me is when I am on and playing with my friends and guild mates. I get rewarded the same if I play peak time or after hours.

    The person(s) tweeting you should of been raiding instead of tweeting if it was such an issue to you. Even one person can disrupt spawners enough to make the spawn take longer. Then maybe they would of got 3 done not 10.

    I didn't think you could come off any more pretentious than you have in previous posts, this one sets a new standard for sure.

    That will be because so many other people play during peak-time, (that is why it is called peak-time and not off-peak), and it is not necessarily the same people, or is the real reason your complaining is because you are not getting your own way or is just plain old jealousy of what others can do and you can't.

    What gives you the right to judge to come here to judge and call people like myself a skiver, for your information I do not play Fel now, have not really done so since AoS release, but besides that, I have recently recovered from a serious illness as in cancer, and I am not fully fit enough to go back to work, that is why I play a lot during the day and evenings, stops me from becoming crazy. So maybe you should get your FACTS right and stop judging others.

    Note to Petra, other Mods and users of the forums, I am sorry if this looks personal, that is because it is. I take a great exception of being judge by others who do not even know me.

    Do not judge others, for they judge themselves by their actions.

    It happens on every shard, and some people have schedules that make it hard to play during primetime hours for the shard they play. If you don't like that these people are working your champ spawns and getting you powerscrolls, then maybe you need to recruit some "skivers" yourself to guard the spawns during the day and early morning because heaven forbid some guild starts doing your spawns at 3 am while everyone is asleep. All we really need is UO to start limiting what people can do and when they can do it...I mean we have so many people playing that loosing a couple hundred or so per shard shouldn't be that bad.

    So, would you prefer that EA shut down Europa completely and waited for you to call them when you got home from school so they could turn it on only for you and then shut it down again when you went to bed??

    Actually a skiver must of have been tweeting Mervyn if he was in school. He has no issue with that skiver, just the skivers that were spawning lol


    Seriously though. I am not name calling any players for what, how, when,why, where, could, should, would, ect ect ect they do in the game. Just talking to Mervyn since he brought it up.

    As much as I would like to have something like this happen, It never will, PvP is thinning because powerscrolls were the last thing fel has gotten worth fighting for, now most people have all the scrolls they want/need. (Scroll binders didn't help fel at all, it only sped the process up of creating more 120s in less overall spawns).

    We need something in fel that is significantly better than the tram counterpart, but at the same time I think tram needs things that are only obtainable there as well. and ALL Peerlesses/champs should be in both tram & fel rule sets.

    I like the new "Hot" temporary curse property in Wrong, and think there should be more pvp incentives with this. I think that If/When Fel champs get re-vamped (If they will continue to drop replicas) the replica's should spawn with a variation of the "hot" property, should give your character a hued paper doll as well, so everyone knows it's You. (similar to the way faction sigils work, but only passed to other players when the item is looted).
    to remove the "hot curse" you should need to bring the cursed item to an npc in any town, and pay a fee to remove the property, so the item can be insured.

    Re: UO rewards scivers

    Well, then whoever tweeted you is not doing their job and stopping those from doing the champs. Your problem isn't prime time vs school time, it's your tweeters that are slacking on the job.

    Not that I believe for a second an actual person is responsible for the tweets or notification of where you get your info. I'm sure that is an automated service that does that.

    You should really reconsider the time you spend on your education. I'd say you need more time in school or you need to quit school entirely. You either don't understand how ridiculous your requests on this subject are(due to ignorance) or you do and still somehow think you have a valid reason to state them.

    I honestly thought you were kidding the first time you posted this drivel but I can see now the problem lies elsewhere...

    Many things seem unfair in this game when you have a life outside of UO. :hug:

    I am a skiver and proud of it.... So far I have worked 35 hours this week, and I still have Friday and Saturday to go, but today is my only day off and I did a few champ spawns.

    I am sorry for enjoying the game I pay for at a time that isn't convient for you.


    Get a life and get over it. :yell:

    many people play an off peak hour shard to do spawns anyway..
