    Ultimate Resisting Spells Fix:
    If you don't agree with this fix, your a character that only knows the new uo...not what it once was. You used to actually resist all types of magic based off this now useless skill. Example, an ebolt with 100 resist (yes 100 was the cap then) would do 12 damage. That same ebolt with 0 resist would do 30+.

    Your highest possible resist with 0 magic resist would be 35. Your suits resist could not pass 35 unless you have magic resist. Once you achieve 100 magic resist, your suits total is fully " unlocked ". Example, your suits actual resists add up to exactly 70s across the board, if you have 0 magic resist your at 35, if you have 100 magic resist it is 70. At 105 resist your natural resist cap is 71, at 110 resist your cap is 72, at 115 its 73 cap, at 120 its 74.
    Does that make sense to everyone? You actually will have a benefit of having resist....what a brilliant idea!

    Regarding the 100% legitimate pairs of inquisitor's resolution. They spawn every 4 months (not sure on exact time), that means in the course of one total year there is 3 pair per shard...multiply the number of shards by four, then take that number and multiply by how many years Doom has been out.....see the problem? Theres that many pair on Great Lakes alone! Can the non-existent GMs do anything? they claim no due to xsharding...my solution? WIPE all the quizzies out of the game and start over, just like they did with the vine cord sandals, only these actually re-spawn after time!

    Punk buster anyone? I'd gladly give up a small percentage of my current connection (DSL) if its using that to check my connection. This will solve MANY problems across all shards.

    Trapped boxes, how can you actually trap a box if your not very skillful at it? There can actually be two possible fixes for this.
    Example one:
    Scale the number of uses a trapped box has based on its crafter
    Example two:
    Your only able to trap a box at GM tinkering

    Either of these two fixes will balance the multi skilled dexxers, and attempt to restore " old school " templates back into the game.

    To hopefully clarify the flag issue with followers. Lets say were inside fire, your grey for whatever reason. I flag on you, chasing ensues until the original two minute timer passes. I then summon a rev/pixie/pet to attack you, since its now " entering the fight " and didn't flag within the first two minute timer, I now flag grey. If my follower or myself hits you and you end up dying, you can count me.

    Specials on archers. Running shot....your on a mount and moving attempting to shoot an arrow. It only makes sense that your accuracy isn't still capped! Dev's defiantly need to look into this.

    If you want a player-base to return to the game. Address ALL of this post and I can guarantee that you will see quite a few vet players return. We do not want to see more patches involving plants/addons/trammy crap....pvp is unique in UO, always has and will be. Return that to us, and you will reap benefits.

    Not bad ideas at all. Slightly off here and there but non the less, Great ideas. You adress having resist, the inquis spawn and well punk buster to bring old players back.
    First lets look into the Inquis spawn time. Great math yes, true facts no. The inquis do not spawn every 4 months, they are actually on a month spawn timer. Only one other Artifact spawns Longer then the inquis and that would be the ruined painting. So thus 12 a year can be obtained per shard.
    I like the thought of bringing old school back, but... Redoing resists so they effect game play like they used to is well, a waste of a skill to some. Pvp resist for the most part is a must have, HOWEVER. In Pvm it really isnt. So you would be ruining there suits to make pvp more balanced??
    As for lets change our current shards to make it more old school? It just won't happen. With EA realsing more and more artifacts and easier methods of obtaining them, and well the economy being in the hole that it is.. It just wont happen.
    Some simple quick fixs they should look into. A. Refix bags of sending and make them work they way they did, so the poor people can actually have a shot at farming resources and gold to catch up to people with Millions apon millions or even Billions. Whille brining that up.. BILLION gold??? Are you kidding me.. People having multiple Bills is dumb,and are by NO means legit. There is no way anyone has earned without Buying gold, duping using the old vendor trick to obtain gold and many more methods im sure i've never even herd of. People who own shops, buy low, sell high and farm resources and do doom,lady m and so on even powerscrolls id have a VERY hard time beliving will ever or have ever reached that much money. So lets take a look into this?
    Old school>>> Yes we have seig but really how old school is it there?
    Lets make 2-3 new shards. Old School ,ATLEAST pre pub 16 at very min. No new skills, no 120 skills, NO artifacts, insurance, custom houses, No greater drags none of the new pets what so ever. Bring powerhour back. So on so fourth. make it excatly like it used to be, Bounty system and so on.
    Just my thoughts.

    No thank you, WE have stolen the last 4 pair of inquisitors gloves on Great Lakes, and I am just sitting on them, as I know they are legitimate because the 2 pair that are currently in my posesion I stole them.

    I know exactly wherre you are going so here is my comment on where you are going.

    none of the inquisitor's resolutions were stolen from a person, so yes if you feel the need to call me a crate it does not bother me, or to say I did not steal, but picked up, as this crate gets 10 million for each zyronic claw, and blade of the righteous, 12 million each Titans hammer, and 35 million each pair of inquisitors resolution. I laugh at anyone who says I am not a real thief. You go ahead and keep stealing the reagents, bandaids, and at times a decent scroll or 2, but this crate makes a ton off stealing from the dungeon as stealing from a person is not profitable :lol:

    The Group I am affiliated with has stolen the last:

    Zyronic Claw; last 6 that have spawned
    Blade of the Righteous; Last 14 that have spawned
    Titans Hammer; Last 9 that have spawned
    Inquisitors Resolution; Last 4 that have spawned

    Claws= 60 million
    blades= 140 million
    Hammers=108 million
    Inquis gloves= 140 million

    This crate's Group that he is affiliated with, has stolen a gross of 350 Million. I challenge you to steal 350 million in items from players. Unless a rares collector gets careless, and does not insure a unduped server birth or em item, then I doubt that any thief that is not a crate will make anything near that amount.

    As far as saying that I am not stealing, but picking up, according to my skills menu, I must use the stealing skill button to activate the skill to "pick up" these items that spawn in Doom, as there is no Pick up skill. The same can be said that you are picking up a item out of another players backpack...la

    I accept your challenge in using the stealing skill to steal from players. MY suggestion is talk to mr.rolo. Although there has been many players out there who have *stolen stolen* from players. I suggest talking to slipknot :).

    wow, I just tried to rejoin the thief's guild, which I have been a member of before, however it says my charactor is not old enough. I am at the mercy of the developers to fix the issue, It seems it has been brought up in the Uhall area and not even a comment from Jeremy, or any developer.

    I don't even have to read that to answer this. They're not going to make a pre-aos or pre-pub 16 shard. They're not going to make multiple pre-aos or pre-pub 16 shards. It's nice to dream, and hope, and ask, and beg - but it's just not going to happen. Better to just remember the good times, and move the heck on.

    I'm sorry for your loss. :[

    No doubt. I have debated this in vent.

    People say this is a game why cheat? "Play it the way its suppose to be played and let the chips fly where they may"(usually those are the first people deadand they cry for a hour). I agree to this however, I dont know a game that I would play where I died over, and over to people who are blatantly cheating. I would play something else. You have new pvpers or people who suck playing a game where they have no chance to be competitive because people are blipping all over thier screen. So people who would normally not cheat are cheating to play a game that cant seem to fix thier cheats. GMs are not addressing the issue nor is anyone else. People post on stratics accusing each other of cheating but the bottom line is it is not the customers fault.(If your internet went out would you call EA to fix it?) Cheat threads have been on stratics now for years so this isnt a new issue.

    Personally, I have been playing this game for 9+ years under various names. I know sooner or later you have to slow down to fight. At that point Im going to get my kill shot.
    So as someone who doesnt cheat I would suggest this. Give the people cheating a reprieve, install punk buster, and let the chips fall where they may. I bet if this game goes legit, people will come back. Coming from a guy who has 4k pluss counts I know there is no pvp like this in any other game.

    I know what ya mean Crack but still. They have given us a Seig shard and Mugen but we cant throw in two new shards? Lets think on the Money alone here. Right now Ea makes roughly 800k a month off subscriber money alone. Thats not including the services they offer. Yes this is of course before the money they have to spend on the game but non the less. So why not go out and try something people and complained about for years. I yes enjoy the game as it is now. However lets think od the benefits a pre aos shard would bring to the game. Lets say we went pre pub 16. Had tram and fel only, no artys, No new lands,new skills,Pets,custom houses,Only gm skills,so on so fourth. Brought all the pvp back to the way it used to be, Mules in tram would be needed again for repairs and armor and so on.
    The Mule note alone has been brought up on how the Smiths and Tailors miss, sitting at brit banks Forge doing repairs and having interacton with people. Thus peoplem wouldnt mind making them, Plus we have to get gear from somewhere right?
    Pvp wise. I mean do i really need to point out everything thats already been said and more? Balanced, no Gimp temps, Pure mages worth whille. In all honestly its not hard to do this.
    We all know what Freeservers are, rather we've played them alot. How many of them are devoted to old school pvp, how many people are always playing them? The anwser is waaay to many to let go, Ea can not only make more money ;which we all know is there main concern. Maybe we could even get lucky and they could look into the counsler program again, so we have live non automated support in game. I've scripted before and I KNOW it is not hard for them to make this happen.
    On a finshing note lets all be honest. SA looks like crap, NO one wants to see 2d go away, NO one cares about gargoyles, and all the new fancy overpowered crap. So heres a better idea, save the money your gonna waste on it EA, and LOSE on it becuase people hate the new concept, and throw two new servers in Pre pub 16. DONT mess this Faction pub up and Hell on the pre aos servers u can put the same scirpt in but instead of artys and crap. Lets see some Indes val, and val vanq kats?

    there is no point to crying over what they need to do with UO, they will never revert things back. all that will be done is add more ubber items, for some reason that seems to be the "fix" for all problems.. see the list of items for the next pub...
