Thoughts on the ideas floating around Uhall...

Discussion in 'UO Crime' started by Mairut, Jan 28, 2010.

    One of the ideas was that either faction arties are restricted to fel-use only, or faction combat can happen across all facets.

    I like sitting at Yew gate when I'm bored too...maybe I'm being paranoid...but if pvprs all go somewhere else to fight, that'll cut back on my opportunities to stock up on pots (among other things). :sad4:
    ...That's what it seems like anyway.

    Your thoughts on this? Paranoid, or might possibly happen?

    I dont think they'll open it up across all facets. I think they should, but I doubt it'll happen. I'd love to see the trammel cities linked to the faction holdings too. It'd give people more reason to support the factions.

    That is definetly not gonna happen. If factions span across all facets, then thieves will be unnerfed. We could join factions and then steal from enemies in tram, that's why they'll never do it.

    Hmmm... I was hoping I could keep my thief out of factions though...

    I was wondering because it was something the Devs said they were considering doing:

    "The issue of joining factions just to get the artifacts and then never actually participating in Factions battles, is one issue we do wish to address. We are currently discussing the pros and cons of enabling Faction combat across all facets. We're also looking at other methods, including detection of faction "deserters" who join up and then never actually fight in PvP."

    Hopefully they'll implement the faction deserter's thing... sounds like if you don't fight you get your faction arties taken away.

    According to the unscientific poll as it stands in Uhall today, only 20% said they would quit factions if characters could be attacked outside Fel, 26% said they would quit if arties were limited to Fel.

    If we joined factions, then we'd be stealing from the same people we're stealing from most of the time anyways. Not sure how that'd keep them from implementing it... they can fight in Tram, and we can steal in Tram(ruleset) in factions. I wonder how many sigils we'd have to steal though, to keep from being considered deserters if they did both.

    ...It's all something interesting to think about anyways.

    U hall is full of bullcrap.

    I wouldn't worry about anything. :D

    Players buy/sell in tram, we'd be able to do the same as guild stealing, without being in their guild.

    I keep thinking about the old "Risk vs. Reward" thing they always talk about. Seems that the faction arties are a lot of reward for very little risk when some players get them - and them spend their time in a trammel facet. I can see the Dev's doing it to add to the "Risk" factor.
