Very disturbing acts done by the Cupid on ATL

Discussion in 'UHall' started by killer instinct, Feb 13, 2009.

  1. I was in Luna on ATL, when one of the cupids came up to me and started to talk. next thing i know this cupid is saying Very sexual acts he wishes to be done. I tried to page but when i did it said not a valid target.

    Has UO sunk so low a Cupid character can talk about busting "something" on someone???

    Sadly, I witnessed something very similar with a cupid at Luna Bank on Baja.

    :sad4: Not funny some jerk off is going to get them deactivated because they are not mature enough to be civil with it.

    Methinks the devs need to try thinking of how things can be exploited when they want to add something.

    With the cupids, harassment would be up near the top of my list since they can say whatever you want. They must be very ignorant of the people who play this game.

    But I think it's funny nonetheless.

    On LS, last night they were being used to smack talk at the Luna Bank.

    -Galen's player
     
  8. At luna bank, they were used in a "your mom" joke fight.
    Childish, but still funny coming from a cupid!

    I think that would be a misuse of the valentines as well, and would be just as poor a decision on your part

    Rather than change it and punish everyone for the bad behavior of a few, the bad behavior should be a GM issue and dealt with accordingly.

    Just my thought.

    Howso? The preview option barks a set of lines in order.. i'm sure they would have expected such a use, and if they hadn't its pretty stupid of them.

    I'm sure you'd be able to deal with the "GIVE ME ITEMS I WANT CONTENT" crowd MUCH better than they would.

    It was a mistake, have you made them? Let me pelt you with complaints because of it.

    They should perhaps apply a profanity filter to them.

    Or, since it's, you know, a preview, make it so that only the person previewing it can hear the message.

    If you can actually find a GM that will do anything.

    I saw the one on atlantic, in Luna talking to a guy near the golems.


    To say it was just short of erotica is pretty acurate.

    Very distasteful.

    This strikes me as an implication that you would dare to orally consume Tacos.

    You will be charged with a hate crime forthwith.

    I say just walk away. the cupid seems to only be able to stay in place when it;s been summoned so it;s not going to follow you.
    If the player using the cupid with that message is following you and keeps summoning it at you.. then page harrassment and target the player. not the cupid. It;s not the cupid's fault and i would hgate to see if screwed up because of stupid ppl and their nasty minds.

    I try... it's a slow night here apparently, and I'm waiting to see what's going to happen with a call I responded to.

    As for the topic at hand... count on people to screw up any kind of freedom they are given ingame in some way or another.

    I gotta say, I find it pretty humerus too.
     
  27. It would be even more humorous if we could flamestrike the cupids to death.

    Stupid cherubs. :D

    and to think..people pay for someone to say that type of stuff to them..

    Hrm..maybe a new way for UO to get in some extra cash....

    walks away toward the tavern....pondering..about ale....

    The profanity filter probably wouldn't work.. 'nut' is not a naughty word.
    "I'm nuts about you" for example, is a totally acceptable thing to say on a valentine...


    By the way, the first line the Cupid always says... includes the name of the character who made it...

    I sincerely apologise, but... every time I read this thread title, I get mental images of garbed-up PKers running around Yew moongate screaming hysterically while being dry-humped by chubby little winged babies in pink diapers.

    ...

    ...happy Valentine's day, everyone.

    I had mine singing Tom Lehrer's "The Masochism Tango" at Ilshenar Oaks, as a dedication to the love of the Champs (during the champ fight while both were out)

    Unfortunately its just another thread illustrating the immaturity which abounds in this now "TEEN" game.

    Props to the 1337 kewl dudes who pwn now.


    I don't understand that last sentence because I want to, but rather because its been shoved down us. You go EA!

    Unfortunately this cupid had a typical guy attitude. Now if he offered to do something to me.......hmmmm

    That reminds me of something that we Atlantians did one time... Stuffa, GM of RBG, would occasionally organize these "shard invasions". Essentially, we all made completely pointless characters named Barton on a server, and then would run around doing silliness. The one I went along for, I don't remember who's idea it was (probably Stuffa's), but we crashed Yew gate. So these 'leet PvP dudes had about 30 naked guys named Barton swarming all over them while shouting "BARTON!" or some variation thereof, and it got quite entertaining. Whenever they'd kill us, we'd go get res'd and return to the fray! Good times.

    Personally, I think that while of course this is something that needs delt with to some degree, its freakin' hillarious to see someone post about it. Not that it shouldn't be posted about, but... I don't know, I just cracked up when I read that some guy was saying a cupid was going to bust "something" on him.

    I'm not one to get upset over some adult humor.


    I'm just telling you the stuff the cupid said was really vulgar.


    Lots of body parts, body fluids, how it tastes, where it's going etc.


    I didnt page on the person, yet I did see the players name who wrote it.


    If you had a kid, or a mother playing this game, you really wouldn't want them to read that trash.


    I'm all for freedom of speech, I'm all against law suits and a weekend in jail. But if someone said that to me in RL, i'd break there nose and think about my actions in jail.

    They are fun and amazing toys. I believe people should be accountable for their actions. Spree and I played with it a bit that first night and predicted this would happen. I guess most missed the post. Spree should be a playtester...

    And this, kiddies, is why we never can have anything fun in the game.
    Because the Devs have to weed out the fun, instead of the fools...
    Ban all guns, instead of punishing the murderer.
    Does everything have to be idiot proof? Can;'t we just get rid of the idiots?

    I personally would rather have one of these fools banned, than two cheaters. Speedhacks and dupes dont affect me, but this crap does, cause it means down the road we can't have more freedom of creativity with our gifts.
