OK, so we've had a chat to some PvPers who were worried that PvP didn't get a fair go on these boards. As a result, the moderators have agreed to allow this a PvP Thread to be stickied so it can serve as the home for PvP talk on this board. Contrary to what many believe, we both understand that PvP is an important part of UO and we're willing to work with you guys as long as you are willing to work with us. We will allow smack talk, more so than normal threads that would likely have been locked on the forum however, please do not get carried away with it. Now, this thread is aimed to give the 'PvPers' who wish to discuss PvP topics and smack talk a place to do so. Real Life Personal Attacks will not be tolerated anywhere Examples on the difference between Personal Attacks and Game Smack Talk: Personal Attacks: Personal insults to get them annoyed and provoking them to attack you, such as "You're a fat housey." Game Smack Talk: Smack talk is putting ones opinions out as to how bad they are and how they cannot pvp or duel; such as "Your shocking on a mage so you can only play overpowered templates." Please note: This is your place to talk about PvP. Any other threads started outside of this one will be Moderated as harshly as all other threads. Best thing is to keep all PvP talk in here. Understand the difference between this thread and normal threads. Just cause you can talk smack in here, doesn't mean you can go to normal threads and do the same to non-PvPers there. Why does Stratics not allow people to post those Cheating Players? The reasoning is very simple. In today's technological age, just about any screen shot, chat log, etc. can be faked quite easily. We are not a Court of Law. To accuse someone of cheating is an allegation that can only be proven in a Court of Law. If we were to allow such allegations, we would be opening the door to allow scrupulous people to falsely accuse good players. It is our wish to protect innocent players from getting their reputations tarnished by such accusations. In Ultima Online, player names are not unique. So if I were to say, "Orvago is a duper!" I may be unintentionally ruining the reputation of another player with the same name. So, because of this we must disallow ALL accusations, whether you know them to be true or not. So please refrain from making accusations of scamming, hacking, cheating, exploiting, and the like. And lastly: If you can't handle the smack talk, don't come into this thread.
