Re: How about weekly 1v1 and 2v2 tourneys?

I gota say im strongly agaisnt it. Everytime the CTF message pops up we just sigh because pvp basically stops for 20 minutes and usually everyone logs after its over. The same goes with tournys, you'll have people that log on for the toruny, win, and log off claiming they are the greatest thing to ...

Re: Thoughts on the latest Patch

Update: The guide that has the information regarding the 0.5 recovery delay is located here . The guide, which was written a few months after AoS came out, notes the values available at that time, and also references the values that were used before AoS. Here is a brief cut and paste from the guide...

Re: Thoughts on the latest Patch

My relatively new-guy, non elite PvPer thoughts on the last patch are that it blows. I have a 7xgm dexer, made a macro for him to auto-cure/refresh/pop trapped pouch and have hotkeys for bandage/drink heal. Worked like a charm, I fought with it many times. Fast forward to today's Double Domination ...

Re: How about weekly 1v1 and 2v2 tourneys?

pls, something

the events cant possible be making play less. it has to have an opposite effect.

the pvmers dont care if us pvpers aren't playing anyways.

Re: Thoughts on the latest Patch

tronica u dont remeber this because uo assist didnt have auto disarm to drink potions. That doesn't cover everything. I spent about 5 hours dueling last night, and multiple times I wasn't even able to cast my spells because upon hitting my spell hotkey I got the msg "you cannot cast spells wit...

Re: Thoughts on the latest Patch

There is no talk about the action delay in here? I was talking with Loops earlier, and came to the conclusion that some of my issues is going from my lag. Such as not being able to use my potion macros while armed anymore becasue it gives me the action que after disarming my haly. I have to manual h...

Re: Thoughts on the latest Patch

The old system was practically AoS 2/6 casting with the addition of 2 second hally hits and insta hit ... You may have enjoyed it more because its a more recent version of UO to some extent and bc it allowed for faster casting of spells overall, but that doesn't make it better. It just makes it dif...

Re: Thoughts on the latest Patch

You're saying were one dimensional but maybe the old system was better. Or the new one is flawed. The same thing could be said about the old system if an atk last throttle had been put in, along with a working disrupt timer reagarding the skilled players killing unskilled players quickly. But instea...

Re: Thoughts on the latest Patch

If that's your preference of play, so be it. Nothing wrong with what you choose. That is part of old school UO. There is no "template of the month" ... choice of what you want to play bc they are all effective. im not playing a dexer becasue i prefer too. im playing a dexer because i do n...

Re: Thoughts on the latest Patch

small group fighting, ill take 2 dexers and 1 mage atm seriously - delays on pots and a stam based swing timer means im constantly chugging cure (dp) and refresh, and all the while im waiting out 1 second cues. ive already retired my mage. its monkey time. - until i die at least then back to the wai...

Re: Thoughts on the latest Patch

can we just pick one system and stick with it. agreed. and loops, i personally liked the pvp here. an atk last throttle would have been a fine enough fix for me. but lets humor you, and say were opening up new combos. thats fun too. but whats the need for the action delay? unequip to drink pots? if...

Re: Thoughts on the latest Patch

accualy i think the arm delay is acurate what people need to realise is its the recast timer that needs to be slightly speeded up and and only slightly speeded up [the recast timer is the one where your disturbed during casting] the timer if you cast a spell and then try to force out another one wi...

Re: Thoughts on the latest Patch

i agree that the current delay on spell recovery is too long... the .75 seemed perfect, if not a tad too slow. I believe it was probably .5, but this 1 second renders mages not only useless vs other chars, but useless vs themselves. While not a common template, the hide/stealth pk was a template du...

Re: drake/dragon breath damage and timing

dmg is fine. they have 75 dmg drake breaths on divinity and its stupid. an annoying waste of regs while farming, and sense they agro from miles away and sometimes breath instantly, it throws ridiculous elements into any pvp in the area. taking 40 dmg from a dragon while pvping is one thing, taking 7...

Re: ITT: We discuss changes on testcenter as of 5/6.

Debuffs will disrupt even if the target is already debuffed. This has to my surprise been pretty well documented as accurate, at least to March 2000, and there's no evidence that I've seen showing that this was a new feature in 2000. This tactic was widespread during UOR and not much during era on ...
