    The UO PVP system is totaly unbalanced. I could care less about the eye candy you put into the game. For me and ALOT of other people PVP is the only reason we log in. You need to do something so that everytime you change the game 85% of the pvp'ers do not use the exact same templete. You need to address balance issues faster. After ten years of UO i can tell you most people quit the game over balance issues. You'd think your company would relise this and make a better effert.

    Hahahahahaha... No really...Hah..Hahahahaha!!!! LOL!!

    "UO is pretty balanced ATM.."

    Haha..Aah.. HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA :bowdown: Bless you man.

    And what kind of phishing for flame-fighting and trolling is this?
    "What do you think is unbalanced?"
    Masquerading as an innocent question..! :hahaha:

    The OP doesn't even need to point at anything and neither do I need to fuel this "discussion".. :loser: I just have to say how funny you both sounded.

    No offense, just speaking about this occassion, yeah?

    UO pvp is more balanced atm than it has been for a long time.

    Equip is no longer hard to come by.

    I can think of quite a few competitive templates as well:





    4/6 chiv warrior

    All can be successful in factions - espeically if people actually play as a team.

    Quitting a game over balance is a blatant case of "I want it easy"
    There is no balance, it's all challenge. Take what you're given and find a way.

    That's why we have players who say it is balanced, they know how to think.

    85%, not quite.

    One of my favorite things about UO is you can choose! There isn't a single template you cannot make. You can be a dexxer, a mage or combine them and throw on cooking! People might be better at certain templates than others, but you can practice or choose another to combat it.
  9. Get rid of soulstones and frags and youll have even more diversity. Diversity is different then balance.

    Now a days its easy to be anything in a day.

    Playing PVP for years and tbh I think its quite balanced atm.
    I have several PvP chars all differents Pally, Parry Mage, Bushido Parry
    and Ninja Archer, all of them work pretty well so I just cant understand
    why are you complaining about unbalanced game.
    Dont blame the game, maybe u need more training and more lore :)

    Heres the problem most of people have this word "Template". UO is a skill based game there shouldnt be any template. Sure you can call a character any name you want like a magecookminer or a necrowarriorlumberjacker. But the essence of UO is that there is not suppose to be specific templates. Youre not suppose to be only warrior,mage,archer,miner,or whatever and stick to that.You dont start with premade skills which you can't change but only build up. You get to choose over time. The only balance UO need is to balance up each and every skill including taste id. item id and so forth.
