R.I.P. Siege

Discussion in 'UO Spiels N Rants' started by Mr X, Nov 4, 2008.

    Over the years the player community on siege has gone above and beyond to make siege the best shard, and time after time the devs have obliterated all their efforts. My account is 100 months old, every month has been spent on siege. I have suffered for almost 8 years of production shard bleed ruining siege. Early on til present day, the devs do not care how new items or new publishes affect siege until the siege player base bombards them with complaints about how the latest whatever is ruining siege.

    Irony. Irony is siege was the one shard with people in factions, and in the devs infinite wisdom they decided to encourage people to join factions with new items. New overpowered easily gotten items. So now siege is full of factioners that are running trammy suits of uberness by doing nothing more than trading in some near worthless silver.

    Why is it the devs never learn from their mistakes? Instead of nerf mode or overpower mode how come they cannot ever find the balanced mode? Ya, people wanted a reason to join factions, instead the devs FORCE people in factions to compete.

    Usually when siege gets broken the siege community comes together and we beg the devs to fix whatever it is they have broken on siege. But it won't happen this time. Why? Because we all love the new stuff and welcome the change? No, there is nobody left on siege to complain. Thanks devs, you finally got your wish, the shard is done. It is no different than any other shard now.

    Oh wait there is one difference, we have rot so it keeps everyone away like the plague. And we have no insurance, but you can't use anything you loot..... What a winning formula, the only victory we have is to grief the other guy by throwing his stuff in the trash and posting a screenshot on stratics.

    Why fix old bugs when we can break more stuff and introduce more bugs? Whatever, we know you don't care about siege and never will, but how about asking yourselves one simple daman question before you change something? How will this affect siege perilous? No? Didn't think so, too much work. Thanks for nothing.

    I guess some don't see it as a problem yet. To me it is akin to the problems with faction blessed RUNIC armor. I suppose things might even out again with SA and inbleling.
