    I'm bored with UO and after tomorrows fight I'll be picking up training a bit more. The only way I get fights anymore is if either I gank, or submit myself to ganks. So Puffy I'll see you on War hammer.

    There is no competition here, the only competition there really is:

    -Forsaken
    -Tamers
    -Ganks


    One is in my guild and a friend, and the other two are boring despite which side is using them. I hate tamers on my side as much as I hate fighting them, so i'm just not gonna do it anymore.

    I hear ya speedy, and I can run, Hide, Bomb, etc, so no one in KOC will get me unless I stay around and get ganked or killed by a tamer. Listen, you died 3 steps from your house by a timed attack (you being silly). Poop happens. As most of your guild knows (and 90% of the shard), it is about learning your limitations. No biggie. And I agree with ya on tamers.

    It's not because I died, I have so many items in my house I can't burn kits anymore because I have no where to store them. I'm just tired of the same old template on this shard, it comes down to this:

    Template one:
    All kill

    Template two:
    *Name is attacking you* You're dismounted
    Name 1, name 2, name 3, name 4, name 5, name 6 is attacking you!

    Template three:
    Name is attacking you
    Smoke bomb


    Not exactly my idea of a fun game. Once they fix smoke bombs or tamers, I may consider playing again. In January I leave for a new job reclass, then again in February for combatives levels 1-3 certification, then Air Assault/Airborne. I'd rather spend my 15$ a month on a game where the programmers listen.

    You'll notice this thread lost a few posts. I tried to just weed out the attacks, but it was too difficult. Let's try it again hmm?

    So five years of fun or eight years of desperately clinging to a slowly dieing game with no dev team, no budget and no possibility of regaining it's former glory? Tough decision there.....

    Well, first off, good luck with the military schools, been there and done that (was worth every second in the long run). I have also thought about trying warhammer, but not sure my laptop can handle. We had some fun fighting lastnight. So at slow times, I might try another game, but UO still shows me light now and again.

    That's exactly what i do, play WAR when UO is slow, and hop on at night when everyone is on. I think UO wouldn't be nearly as fun if ventrillo wasn't involved, think of how lonely it would be to play without any Vent. Anyways Unless you got one of those uber gaming laptops dude i dont think it'll run it....graphics are nice.

    Are there any games that are close to uo? I like housing and PVP. Seems hard to get both. Not sure warhammer works with my laptop. IT is a Dell Latitude D620 with plenty of RAM. THoughts?

    I'm not quiting but its definately not the same game as it was pre-aos. i logged last night after fighting you guys a couple times and played NCAA football 09 for a couple hours. I'm thinking about shutting one of my accounts down, reactivating my x-box live account and checking out the new online dynasty mode. I had a hell of a game vs. the comp where I popped a last second 15 yard touchdown run in the last 4 seconds to win the game; thats even more fun vs a player:).

    P.S. last nigth did have some good fighting both against KoC and GiL. I try not to fault any of the players for the crap that was done to this game. Pre-aos it was damn easy to get competive pvp gear and we had a much larger population because of it. I'd persnally love to see Siege revert back to pre-aos and maybe drop the Ish and Tokuno facets from the server. I think alot of people would return to UO if that happened.

    I would be all for a revert pre-Age of S*&t. Perhaps we could see UDL back in game, now that was fun stuff and excellent roll-playing at the same time. Too bad most of you youngsters weren't around to see what this game was all about. You've only seen what it has become. Overpowered this, overpowered that, GIMME this item, GIMME that item. Most of you have never seen skill in this game, not that its your fault, it's because thats all you've seen. Gotta have this scroll, gotta have that scroll. Well thats enough ranting, just my 2 cents.

    You mean mark of udl running around with a full cunning suit and one shoting people with a glacial staff?

    Or we going back before that when naked mages could destroy any well equiped warrior?

    Yeah,

    You would have to fork over a boat load of money to get a nice laptop to run warhammer. Might as well stick to what your best at, shoot / smoke bomb. Rinse, wash, repeat :)

    I never had a problem fighting mark or any other udl. As far as fighting naked mages goes with a well equiped warrior, i wish i fought more naked mages back then. I very seldom used anything more than a force wep once in awhile a power. Mostly just exceptionally made weapons were all a good warrior needed with exceptionally made armor. The game was more fun then mainly because everyone had 700 max skill points, 225 max stat points, so 7x GM was what you expected to see out in the field. This made it an even play field for everyone, even newbies to the shard (once they endured the 4-6 months it took to get to 7x GM through the GGS). Oh and dont forget, a warrior could easily wear a full agility or bless suit and use a bandaid in 2 secs and hit with a vanq wep so fast it'd make ur head spin.

    Uhhh the bandy timer was 11 seconds no matter how much dex you had. I think you are confusing old school UO with imaginations of a game where dexxers could compete. Dexxers never had a shot until the random special moves were put in for two handed weps. Then the naked mages all cried and quit because "no skill click and stick gimps" could kill them. And then all dexxers were either hybrid longspear mages or vanq axers. Old school UO had some good things but pvp balance between mages and dexxers was not one of them. They have done a much better job of balancing classes since. However there has ALWAYS been a flavor of the month template that was overused because of balance issues and there achilles heal has always been too slow to fix the overpowered templates.

    Every introduction of gameplay changes and new items has shifted the balance to one type of pvp template to the next. And then everyone has a mad dash to change to it to compete and be "uber". I am sure when SA is release there will be some overpowering template issues that will take the devs a year to fix it.

    Now these greater dragons are stupidly overpowered. My bard is not even a counter to them. They have no counter except for other tamers with greater dragons or massive numbers. That makes pvp very lame indeed. They make people want to quit. But as seen in the townhall the devs don't give a **** about siege because it is a pain in their ass. So as usual in the history of the shard we get the shaft.

    I invented the ninja bokker over a year ago, I come back to see them everywhere now. **** even puffy copied my template before I left.

    Mr. X I did PvP as a warrior pre uor and mages had quite an advantage but it was fixed with UOR. I didn't even mind scrolled chars pre-aos. Post UOR, running a naked mage with nothing but regs was a very quick way to die. Even if I was "naked" I still had a full potion load, tons of regs, an inviso item, maybe a reflect item, a sack full of trap pouches, and a sepeate trap pouch set to a retrap macro. That was standard mage gear and everyone could obtain it fairly easily. I do miss the days when UO wasn't about "the suit".
    It is currently alot easier to get a warrior competitive vs what it takes with a mage. I wish they would tie mage casting into the mage/eval skill rather than
    making it item based, thus allowing mages to cheaply deck thier selfs out with good sdi and DCI. its alot easier to max a warriors HCI , cheaply, than it is for a mage to cover all thier much needed boosts. I think if this happened you would see alot less house hiding, ganking, a dragon whoring all around. oh yea and did i mentiuon that I feel dismount and smoke bombs contribute more to the ruination of this game than pets imo.
