    Hi, I play on Formosa, Asuka and Sonoma.

    Of course my major shard is Formosa and Asuka due to that Sonoma is over 300+ ping for me

    For asuka, it is still okay because the pvp is quite active there and the points is talking about millions over there for killing an enemy (as you could see in uo.com). Moreover, i only got 3 pvp chars there.

    However, for Formosa, it is really nightmare to me.

    I have over 20 pvp chars there, but there is no one to kill because people are either playing "hide & seek powerscrolls under their BLUE spawn chars" or playing "hide & seek stealth stealing sigil which when I kill only got 1 point or 0 point for the 2nd time i kill him/her on my same character"

    Why not you implement back the 2x kill points / 3x kill points system back in, so at least I could make a Minax/SL char to kill myself for points?

    Or maybe at least could you make the freakin kill points NOT drop by 1 everyday?

    In this situation, how do you want me to play?

    Well, so how to solve this problem now? DEVS?

    Should I just quit faction for all my chars?

    Maybe its only Formosa problem and not any other shard problem, but still I want to express my angry feeling about this and really hope to hear voice and action taken. I am a Faction Fan. But its SO SAD to see the situation now.

    This was supposed to be fixed like a year ago. Complaining does no good either the more you complain it needs fixed the longer it takes to get fixed.

    Really what is the point of factions now anyways? The towns don't matter because the reg/ore/bottle vendors are pointless. With Imbuing you can make a good suit with out faction arties. Stat loss sucks, and personally the reason I don't like it isn't because of me going into stat loss, but because of the people I am fighting going into stat loss. I say that because 1 of 2 things happen. Either they go and switch characters and get another faction character that isn't in stat loss, which is a pain in the butt since we have the worst "life bar" system in the universe, or the leave the fight all together so the fight ends which really sucks.

    Some people say that stat loss helps determin a winner, well I guess I feel like you don't need stat loss to determin a winner and the fights go on for a lot longer with out stat loss than with stat loss.

    The double and triple points that we used to have is what caused some of the shards points to be so jacked up. You had some people screwing around with the points to either make where the trammies or PVPers wouldn't be able to wear the higher arties. The removal of the bonus points have helped some, but you still have some people that will log onto their high point chars about once a month just to keep the average high, eventhough they no longer play on that shard. People have asked that they just reset the points, but it is doubtful that will ever happen.

    The system is pretty sound - don't tinker with it!

    If you can't find someone to kill, then up your thief skills and get yourself some sigels.
