WAR IN THE GUARD ZONES

    Hello all!

    Publish 55 shipped with a bug that dropped guard zones in towns across Britannia.

    This also dropped restrictions on placing houses, and several reports have come in of people placing new houses within towns. We have since published an update to fix the town zones.

    Our stance on whether these houses will be allowed to remain is an unequivocal "No." If you placed a house in a guard zone, you should remove it immediately before we remove it for you.

    (This will not affect grandfathered houses that have already been there for years)

    Thanks!
    -Draconi

    P.S. The guard zone changes are slated for Publish 56, and will include all the other changes (that didn't slip through accidentally) for the war.



    Apparently, allot of people missed this in Draconi's post. They are all miffed over the housing in guard zone issue so much that they totally missed this tid bit of info. I am VERY interested in this "WAR" that is going to be occurring in our towns/guard zones, more so than someone being silly enough to purchase a house/keep that was placed in a guard zone yesterday. Give me more info on the WAR.

    Going by the events we've currently seen, the "war" would be faction based.

    Those with glass daggers and those without, I'd imagine.

    Where are you quoting that from? Seriously, if you quote someone, you should provide a link.

    I'm not seeing the "P.S." part of that quote on UO's website. The only text I see is:

    From http://www.uoherald.com/news/

    Update: Found it myself... http://vboards.stratics.com/showthread.php?t=101007

    Houses in Guard Zones
    By Draconi

    Sorry I didn't include this info, but above is the title of the thread that I quoted and Draconi is the author. I don't know how to quote from other threads into a separate thread, so I just cut and pasted the info I thought was pertinent to the thread I started. It looks like you found the Draconi's thread about housing and put a link to it in your post already Setnaffa.

    There's a rumor going around they might be removing all guard zones in Trammel, changing it to Felucca ruleset and allowing Reds in.
     
  8. And there's also a rumour that Richard Garriot will come back and personally make the game have a space station where we all live, and we're going to call it DS9!

    Seriously people. Don't believe in rumours.

    This rumor is false :p

    Guard zones in Felucca for the cities will be affected in the manner already mentioned (gone). Trammel guard zones will only be affected by the invasion of individual cities.

    Reds aren't getting into Trammel. *sprinkles some Order on the Chaos*
     
  10. There's also a rumor that they will be adding a new spell to Spellweaving, where you can make a primate fly out of people's derrieres. I think they said it was going to be called the "buttmonkey" spell.

    For those of us that live in Fel and don't pvp; does this mean we can be attacked in town?
     
  12. "Order and Chaos" hmmmm...... :)

    "Reds aren't getting into Trammel."

    Then what was the point of choosing sides? Why do only, "Blues", get to do anything that is event releated? What is wrong with letting, ALL THE PLAYERS PLAY? It's not like it is forever. They invade, they lose, things go back to normal, again.........Why Not?:gun:
     
  14. Because all of the blue trammys will cry and quit, it's that simple. They *sniffles* just don't like us reds I guess....*breaks out in tears*

    rolls eyes..

    Lord now I know what the pepto from the quest is for...

    Either make a blue and join in the event. Play your red for factions OR go raid another champ saying you OWN the shard. K. Hasnt that been beaten into the mud?

    Now back to topic :D Can we plz :D They say invasions from other towns. K. The only two towns that come to mind is Old Haven and Magicina. SInce they are both gone LoL. Maybe some undead from Old Haven find a teleporter or something?

    heck Im happy for I can be ready with my spells when the invasion DOES come. Unless its suppose to happen on a Monday :D

    Edit: Dang it I cant cast in town anymore...UGH.

    Did I miss something? Where does it say that "REDS" can not join in
    on the upcoming events?

    "Because all of the blue trammys will cry and quit, it's that simple. They *sniffles* just don't like us reds I guess....*breaks out in tears*"
    And it sure seems that "REDS" are crying way more than "Trammies"
    lately. :coco:

    Now now, who said everything was happening in Trammel?

    Also, to those who asked if they could be attacked in Felucca towns come 56, the answer will be: Yes, if it's one of the eight faction cities.

    WOOHOO, Thanks for the replies Draconi. Sounds like we are in for some fun times with Pub56!
     
  20. BTW, it was probably mentioned somewhere, but anyone notice the guards are still alive and well in Serps? Found out first hand last night. Just an fyi to you reds out there that find a lonely blue standing in front of fire..... :)

    Oooh, do I detect Fel love?! Woot!

    Now, hand over those sprinkles. Order doesn't suit you nearly as well as the flamethrowers and explosives, and there's plenty of torching still to be done :D

    Its all about feelings after all. The fact that there would be zero real impact from reds being in Trammel is lost due to the rampant "We hate reds so don't let them in Trammel so we won't have to have nightmares about them after seeing a Red name" set.

    "Hi there!

    Luckily, this is not a one-time appearance. The Six, their brethren, and their enemies, will be coming with the war content we've been talking about.

    Expect them to not be as easy, or simple, as you've seen them so far, though.

    This is getting better and better by the minute. Gotta love Draconi with his hints. Looking forward to fighting the 6 and the hoard of baddies they will bring with them.

    I didn't think this was difficult to understand so here goes
    According to Draconi's posts; Guards were not removed from all towns, just faction towns. Nothing has been said about gates or gate areas. Final question - I'm sure the answer is - This is an EVENT.

    THP, WTF is your problem here? This thread was started as a thread about Draconi's mention of WAR in one of his posts, and until azmodanb HIJACKED it and turned it into a housing whine section (like the locked thread from yesterday), it had absolutely nothing to do with housing. So, if you are going to make a blanket statement as pathetic as the one you made, you need to take a large spoon of your own medicine and stop whining and hijacking threads as well. Stick with the subject, or if you where referring to the hijackers, call them out by quoting them instead of blanket statements about the entire thread. Sheesh, can’t you people stay on subject for more than ~30 posts anymore?
