Why is it when we have contests or events the "Arsehole Factor" has to rear its ugly head??? Why can't we have events and contests WITHOUT some WHINER BABY throwing a hissy fit simply because they didn't win or get a event item? I was deeply angered and sadden to read Lord Gareth's thread this morning. Why do some people think because they didn't win the makeover WBB contest it gives them the right to ruin UO for the ones that did win??? Lord Gareth, I feel your pain and I am sorry. For the record I don't play Chessy, but NO ONE has the right to ruin the game for someone else. I recently won one of the Valentine's event lanterns on Legends. As result of that accusations were made that the winners were cheaters-hackers-scripters, getting special favors from the EM, were buddies with the EM or were uber rich and a paid off the EM. I hadn't even seen or met the EM till the Valentines event. I have never ran a cheat, hack or script nor know how it is done! I believe my winning this item resulted in a nasty viscous in game attack on my sister. Sis and I dress our chars alike but that is where the similarities end. Anyway sis picked up a vendor rune from the bank floor after the V-day event. She recalled to the vendor house and was shocked when the owner immediately banned her from the house. The owner then ran outside began accusing my sis of intentionally block their vendor house for the last hour, claimed to have screenshots and was paging on her for harassment. My sister tried to explain to this person that she hadn’t done anything but recall to their vendor house. Apparently this player had the brains of Patrick Starfish, because they kept on at sis. Sis recalled to Luna bank, and right in behind her was psycho-vendor house owner. This person again started with sis and by this point had her crying in RL. I came to Luna bank and tore into psycho-vendor house owner because nobody makes my little sister cry, PERIOD! I recognized this person from the event because they had a GIGANORMOUS fit because they didn’t get a lantern or robe. Anyway this person said they’d leave us alone if I’d pay them. HELLO, that’s extortion and I don’t play that game. All of that because someone got their panties in a twist over some pixel crack! Kudos, to all the Legends peeps that came to my sister’s and my defense!! I wuv you guys! Now apparently the Contest winners are catching flack simply because they won?!?!? GOOD GREIF!!! Can’t we all just get along and enjoy UO WITHOUT the "Arsehole factor"? Maybe the next expansion should be the “Whiner Baby Expansion” with nappies, talc, and pacifiers. New NPC nannies for regular nappy changes and time out rooms for tantrum throwers who need them! Might just be worth it for the peace and quiet! *Yanks on flame retardant body suit* I know its coming !!!
