I see I have been talked about in Stratics a bit lately. In some cases it concerns issues I think would have been better of discussed via PM. For example, Hef had a meltdown regarding loosing two sets of faction items within a couple hours play. It went like this, Now mind you, one suit was sold back to him immediately the other one I have. He did not ask me for it, but I offered that I would discuss it with him when he gets control over Tek, who was not playing by the very rules Hef had set. Hef claimed he could not control Tek, so I told him he could have his stuff when he retracted the threat he made in the above quoted post. He has yet to do that, so his stuff is still in a chest at my house. But this is not about Hef, or me, or LOW, or KOC, or TNT, it is about items that have no more business on Siege than the blessed helms and leggings did. They need to go away soon or this shard will die. I have also been accused of buying up faction items belonging to others. I admit I fostered this untrue rumor in an effort to make people see how immature the entire faction armor issue has become. The fact is, I bought a bear hat belonging to PwNoGraphy with his special mark on it, “Bearhead of the Siege Butcher.” I bought it because it looks cool locked down on my alter and was priced too low. It is not my intention to buy anyone’s stuff to trash it. So crying about that can cease. I suspect that, deep down, most of you see the dismal shape the faction items have put the shard in. The constant wailing here must be capable of getting some attention to the fact that these items don’t belong on Siege and need to be removed (I know I am starting to sound redundant). So, keep running these endless “Please play fair with the faction stuff” threads. It has to help the devs see how much they hurt things.
