    Fixed an issue to allow Faction players from triggering a trapped chest to deny giving faction scores and stat loss

    This is probably the worst change ever. The only defense a single player has against ridiculous zergs is self inflicted death. So now zerging is going to be promoted even further...
     
  2. Its a good change, dont want to lose points and go into stat? Quit Factions

    I am yet to join factions but am seriously considering it. Especially as i will be running solo most of the time against the "zerg" so now they cannot stop going into stat if i kill them and they must either wait 20mins or return on a diff char...either way giving me a few minutes of more even numbers.

    Great change!

    I would suspect that you use this "glitch" alot?

    ANYONE who can/and use faction items should be put into stat upon death period, and not be allowed to use a trap box to use a work around to avoid going into stat.


    I would love the order/chaos system back but it is not going to happen, there was none of the trap box nonsence to avoid dieing to a oposeing member

    Well you can still cast say harm or lightning on yourself, right? :/ or hell, what about an old school magery trapped pouch hehe...

    There are a lot of ways to kill yourself, I should know :( ;D

    It is a WEIRD change though, unless something isn't there or I'm not reading between the lines

    I'm pretty sure if you kill yourself you go into stat. Death via trap box doesn't get counted since normally those are made by another char and the box is trapped while sitting on the ground (also the reason why you can't give a murder count to the person who placed the trap).

    Self destructing didn't prevent stat loss (or at least it wasn't supposed to), it was merely a tool to deny opposition from getting a kill point.

    Unfortunately, Gowron, using a trapped box to kill yourself when you're in factions DOES prevent stat loss. This patch will fix that (finally).

    Yea seriously, it's completely unfair how 2 or 3 > 1. They definitely need to invent new UO math. :lol:

    No really, people who have the advantage should be crippled arbitrarily cause it's not fair.
