Yes, a double post. I posted this in the new Fel Forum also I admit, I was a total Trammi one day. I have played for more than a decade with a hiatus here and there, so anyone screaming at me that I don't know the game the way it used to be is a fool and a half. Although I totally enjoyed the thrill of the game back then, it also was ultimately prohibitive for total enjoyment of the game for which I was paying money to play. I have never been able to be a power gamer, due to the acceptance in my life that the real part is more important than the fictive game part. As a result, my character development in game has not been as expedious as some of the other people on the shard that I play. While I was whacking bunnies, or grinding away at a mountain side to get some ingots, to gain some skill or to make some gold, I died. Not from the occasional orc, but by the hands of my fellow shardians who then next danced on my corpse and called me noob, rezzed me, and repeated that a few times. My capital gain for that day would be zero, with a free dose of frustration mixed with a condition requiring beta blockade. It was not that the person killing me was smarter, tactically more advanced or anything else, I was just not as 7331 as they were. Then came trammel, and trammel is why I ended up playing this game for a decade. I will not lie. I always dreamed of exacting revenge and being part of the PvP community. I used excuses such as "speed hackers", "scripters" and such freely. Now that nobody uses numbers for letters anymore, and only truly dedicated old farts play uo, i have finally been able to collect gear, scrolls and finish my templates to be able to enjoy the game to its fullest. Judging from my fellow guild members, there are so many people like me still out there... and although I am sure there are nice scripts out there, it really does not matter all that much, despite my crying wolf before... And guess what? I now have both my houses in Fel. Love the additional free spirit that comes with living in Fel. I spar with my friends who now also moved their houses to Fel. We go out to champ spawns and get our asses handed to us by well oiled PvP guilds. However, the thrill is back. And, i racked up my own first few murder counts. My point is this though: it took me 10 years to get here, 7 if you go by my account age. I still play with the characters I made back in 1999. I would not have done that without Trammel. Yet, I always hoped to be a tough Fel player able to stand my ground. I have grown with this game, and now I find myself right there: in Fel. Call me slow, or stupid, or ineffective or any other internet savvy slang you can throw at me. I am though, I think, very representative of the population that is still out there playing this game. I am not a godzillionaire, I have some nice stuff now after all these years. I enjoy repetitive clicking on troglyodytes and demons just as much as anyone out there. But now, finally, i can get back at those power gaming reds that destroyed my bunny whacking, wood chopping ass that had no chance at making it 10 years ago. Nostalgia is what it is, nostalgia. And most people screaming for classic rule set shards are just nostalgic. I still am adding new nostalgic memories as often as I can, in the new lands of Felluca. Glad to be there now. I wanted this posted in the Felluca forum as one of the new threads, because I want to make sure that people know that this game is awesome, and that Fel is the reason why. Not because it "is" Fel, but because Fel adds such a vast aspect to this game in terms of providing a goal in UO life to so manny trammel dwellers out there. Just like I once was. Glad to hear your opinions on this matter.
