    It's more of a shame when people judge the worth of fighting something, by its loot.

    Although, I agree that I had my samurai fighting generals, and I had to duck out pretty soon after to repair.

    Umm...HELLOOO! If you are participating just for 'uber items', expect to be disappointed. Addictions to anything always leave you chasing that high of the next best thing.
    Funny thing is, you never quite get those flurries in your stomach anymore....that most excellent high is obtained when you are playing for fun, personal goals, and most of all friendship.

    Truth is, I've enjoyed the last couple of months in UO, and I expect to enjoy after the next patch for a while.

    But right now, I've played too much since the last patch and need a break.

    And from the way guild chat looks for our guild, there are a lot of people who are thinking the same way. Either people are crafting, working characters up for the next "event" or are just not playing. I suspect that your shard is the same way.

    So it isn't the lack of loot that has us away, but the preparation for future loot or the desire to do something else for a while.

    I agree it's nice to see some new monsters and events but because they are new they like any new content get experimented with and quickly accepted or rejected. With the invasions going for a long period of time it's just showing that yea they were and are fun, but not something that should be there as a constant in the fashion they are right now. I don't know if Pub 57 is going to play into the invasion or not but if Pub 57 just makes them vanish and something else show up elsewhere I'll be disappointed because it will mean that the invasion overall had little point other than distributing new loot and keeping us occupied for a couple of weeks.

    I think it's a mocking disagreement...
    Something along the lines of "Yeah, everyone everyone came out to fight the skellie lich and all for the fun, and not loot. lol"

    I was excited about hearing how pub 56 would be changing factions so I reactivated, but now after a couple months with the lag and more buggy game play added to an even buggier game I'm still wondering how they can feel their product is worth the same monthly charge as others of much much better quality. So I'm gonna play something WORTH my money.

    I don't know what shard you play on but LS is still pretty lively.

    Yes there should be better rewards for the event, though.

    what i try to say?
    this town invasion event is LAME.
    MOST people (particularly if they play fenc/sword/mace char.) DONT DO the invasion
    Generals and CD are lame over time.
    u can pray sunny waether as long as u want, but if u open the frontdoor you see the rain :(

    the truth(everyone can see this) is, that except of 3-4 shards, ALL others are empty right again the events end or they realice that the efford to do is in NO way worth it.

    a handfull of poster here may say they hunt not for items, they hunt for FUN only,
    maybe that is true, BUT it is NOT what the majority want/do
    (worthfull rewards are FUN to)

    or a other example are the magincia rubbel items.
    LOL, so nice items,and nothing worth, because everyone has at last 18pcs of them.
    they could make those items for thiefes,stealable in towns ,that whould be fun for thiefes for a long long time,and there would be new demand for deco items to Sell/BUY

    Speak for yourself Der. Baja is still very lively. But we do tend to play for the joy of playing, not just the rewards. I'm not saying everyone on Baja is that way but a good majority are. People heal whoever is helping take down whatever. It's not just about the generals. It's about enjoyment. Anyway just saying don't generalize just cause your experience isn't the best.

    Oh and as for dexxers not being included, we have several that do just fine.

    Not sure what shard you play on but I know on the Atlantic many dexer (fencing, swords, and macers) ARE DOING the invasion. Maybe its just your shard.

    sure,sure,i speak for myself :)
    and therefore EA decided to close UO some month ago ??
    sure sure, i speak for myself and the many many player who never posted on stratics.

    maybe u run around with 10 or 20 player, thats good, good for u.
    what u may call very livly, is definetly not livly enough

    (sometimes i visit other shards to, so i was on a "big-shard" the time the moonglow event started.and there was not even 50 player at this prime time. puhhh, lively, lively )

    I've actually been spending quite a bit of time in Magincia.

    Not for the rubble, I gave up on that.
    I could say it's because I'm gathering threads for enhancing the cloaks. I've 8 cloaks, and over 60 of each type of thread.

    But if I was actually honest. I like the sayings of the restless souls and the swirly ghost graphic when the corrupted ones die.

    I'm easily entertained :D

    you gave up on rubble?how should i understand that?
    gathering thread´s is as long entertainment as long as i need them.
    and then ??

    (b.t.w. draconi removed the "old rubble tiles" on the ground, because of the massive lag, and it was NOT an effect of doing the rubble-quest :) )

    I gave up on the rubble because I got multiples of items I had no use for.

    I don't see the game in terms of 'how much is this worth?' I had no need for multiple items that didn't fit my house's decor, so I didn't collect them.

    I do what I enjoy doing. Some days that might be collecting arcane gems, some days it might be seeking out a paragon balron.

    Well, you're just one person with a negative opinion right now, so, honestly, it doesn't hold water. For one, you state 99,999% of players....back that up with facts.....Item chasers are the worst class of players out there, not just in UO.

    Materialism has gone through the roof, to where people actually spend real life cash on pixels they don't even own. Now that's lame.

    Go to speils and rants if you need to blow steam. Alot of us actually look through loot, take the gold and have imaginations.

  23. Der Rock

    each to his own :)
    what for me and others?
    what about player who LOVE to collect items(if worthy)
    what about player who would love to run vendors again, and selling worthy items
    what about player who love to play around with loot or artifacts
    enhancing and all those things

    it is the rule that most player hunt for reward, if the reward is worth nothing,it´s boring
    look at doom, they changed it, all arties are almost worthless now, and doom is empty again. :(
    (i know i know, 3 poster will jump in again and say " on my shard doom is overrun every night and day)

    reread youre owns posts from the past, before posting here ;)

    I didn't participate in any of the Halloween events except gathering some pumpkins. I have killed a total of two enemies from the invasion getting me two sets of colored armor. And I've (so far) only collected three of the rubble rewards.

    How is it even possible that I am STILL enjoying my time in game...

    Even on small shards (and Origin is pretty darn slow at times) people manage to find things to do.
  26. Der Rock

    Der Rock Guest

    Did i say anything against youre playstyle and the art of having fun in UO ?
    NO. :)
    i ask myself and for a huge amount of other player ;)
  27. Do you have all of the Peerless sets? How about the ultra rare Doom stealables, have you stolen any of them? What about AoS rares or any other collection type stuff?

    There are plenty of things to collect, and I'm positive that you don't have all of them.

    I run an EXTREMELY successful vendor shop, and it's not even in Luna. If you fail when you try to run one, then that's on you, not the game. Plenty of people run vendor houses and have no problems with it.

    Artifacts and enhanced loot still sell very well on vendors, and it's not that hard to come by things to enhance.

    Yeah, those Orny's are down to 100gp now......../sarcasm

    Honestly, I don't understand why you're still playing. You never have a single positive thing to say about anything. Every time you post it's to complain about something. You really should reevaluate your gaming because it's obvious UO isn't doing it for you.
  28. Der Rock

    Der Rock Guest

    wasn´t you one of the first who complained about the invasion event?????
    this invasion is one of the most boring i can remember

    Yes, there are not many items left in uo that i did not steal ,loot or got
    (u can resaerch on UO-Trade.Net what i have sold in the past for example(if that is still possible,dont know),in that time i was one the the big seller on uo-trade.net)
    (NO,no server birth ultra rare collector, because i had the game unopen in the basement situated for some years,cant remember why,to busy at that time maybe)
    i also had succesfully vendors in the past,but if there are no buyers,vendors are obsolete
    i had an extremly succesfull thief (i was so hated,because i could help to send many cheater to the ban- nirvana LOL)
    Yes, i had a LOT of fun to play my playstyle in UO, but over the years with the lack of players,there is not much left to do.
    i still have thousends of items in my castle,but whom to sell???????
    The main problem (i think) is everytime a handfull of complainers cry for nerf and twaeks the dev´s jump on that. THEY nerf it, 5 complainer are satisfied and 500 player left the game for that.
    that is what i accuse to the Dev´s
    the misery is home-made :(
    (apostille:the biggest sad thing off ALL is that the dev´s has the cheater/duper/scripter part to long be unattended)

    UO was from the beginning a game for buyer and seller,supply and demand,that is destroyed

    yes, i play not often these days, i pay only 1/3 from what i have payed in the past for uo,
    if that is what the dev´s want,here we are

    and sure, it is so easy for people like you to say: "UO isn´t doing it for you and you and you....."

    and no, i am not here for to say "positive things", i put my thumb in the wound
    and that is needed.
    "yeasayer" are more then enough around here.
    if UO would be almost perfect, i would play and not posting

    What else should they judge it by? The fact that it takes like 30 boring minutes to kill a general? The fact that nothing is acomplished by fighting the invasion because they just restart, and even if you left them there all they do is mill about, they don't hurt the town. Nothing is at risk.

    It's just kinda boring at this point.
  30. The only thing I complained about was that it wasn't happening on Pacific due to our faction situation. I've got no problems with the invasion itself.

    No buyers? Then where does all the stock from my vendors disappear to on a daily basis?

    It sure is. That's because I'm still having fun playing the game. The day it stops being fun is the day I cancel my account and start playing something else.

    Maybe you should take the advice.
  31. Der Rock

    Der Rock Guest

    i dont need any advice, particulary not from you, for sure
    i am only online for castle keeping and event stuff, nothing else. :(
  32. Since you seem to be having so many problems with various parts of UO, you need advice from someone, for sure.

    Your castle is still there, and there's events going on, so what is it you're complaining about? All of your expectations are being met. :lick:
  33. Flora Green

    Flora Green Guest

    I didn't say anything against your playstyle. That's the great thing about UO, it's flexibility. If you are relying on dev events to have fun and you can't seem to find anything else to do that you find enjoyable, maybe you need a break. Happens to most of us.

    As I pointed out though, even on small shards, there's usually a few people willing to do something. If that falls through, in a few days you'll have new holiday gifts to occupy your time for a couple hours. :)

    i do and am looking forward to atlantic actually having some invasions...
    so what about durability point's ,, just repair then use some powder of fortifying on them.. vola like new again :)
    personally i think the loot is good, especially the books and weapons.
    the best thing they could do would be to make the town invasions permament.
