Isn't UO the game with freedom as it's foundation? So why then do some want to force game play onto all players by: A) forcing players to either face Gankers to get the most important items in the game B) forcing players to group, when some want to play solo ??? Now, I can see either of these cases for rewards that don't affect character advancement (including items), or even for a greater chance at advancement rewards. But I have a thing against being forced into game play that some players simply don't want. I mean, isn't UO supposed to be the anti-WoW? I have an even bigger thing against players who want these aspects for their own selfish gain. I suspect there's a lot of other gamers who feel the same way, mostly ex-UOers.
