When will something be done about champ spawn cams?

    I am curious to know when the development team plans on really fixing the champ spawn cams. These cams affect everyone’s game play by allowing guilds, mostly pk guilds to watch champs spawns unattended. These cams can be a ghost or live toon, the cam then uses UO Auto map to relay the number of candles on the altar, the number of people around and the guild the people are from. These scripts are normally run around the clock, and are sometimes even run by people who receive cash for doing this.

    I propose a solution to this problem. Make it so you cannot time out in a fel dungeon or T2A. Make the PK guilds physically scout these spawns. The developers are trying to bring back pvp, by bringing forth the changes to spawns in this publish, but the same problem is around that killed fel to begin with. Please put a stop to unattended cams monopolizing fel champ spawns.

    They can stop is easy. Just make it that is you time out or are dead to long in T2A or any champ area you get sent to chaos shrine.

    People dont have a problem with getting raid'd by guilds who actually go check the spwans. People have a problem with guilds using ghost cams that say hey look someone is doing despise and it's about to pop lvl 3. While they either sit in there GH messing around or doing another spwan, but becasue there is someone else in despise they better go raid becuase of there cam.

    I have to admit it's still not as bad as when omen:yell: ran this shard.

    Come on guys, I mean look at these other higher priority fixes. Yanno, the game stopping, "OMG, I rule the shard with my colored swampy!" Holy crap the Dev's say we need a fix for this ASAP, these colored swampys are taking over and we definately can't have anything like this ruining our game play for our paying customers!

    Sorry for the rant I am in a mood for some reason!!

    How do you think OMEN dominated fel they used that ghost cam system. ( i know because i use to be OMEN long time ago.) Not to mention every other cheat they could find.
  9. Actually I was the person who'd run to all the champ spawns and send out others to scout.
