Thoughts on events

This event seemed to be more thought out than previous events to try to include everyone. Casual players can make a little coin and collect some items they couldn't before. Hopefully the game made some store revenue off garden beds. 

There's still room for improvement. 

Fel players self regulate. As long as event items (eggs, drops) can be insured there really is no risk for parking in the guard zones in fel and living their best life. This week i have seen some rather impressive multibox thorn planting full auto bunny basher complete with an auto insure faster than my thief can target. Idc play how you want but there needs to be some risk associated in fel. I have a 50/50 shot at getting guard wacked while someone can hit play with no risk. 

I think if these events can also be done in fel, guard zones should be considered and eggs/drops should be cursed.

    You are able to kill them and take thorns of their corpses, aren't you?

    Not legally in guard zone. Most carry a stack of thorns weighing over the limit for a valid steal or it's instant guard wack.

    I think this would have been a good event for NL.  A quest would tell use about the need to get bright green snake plants to make thorns.  They start the event with the spawn.  The mobs drop seeds, we have to cross pollinate the plants to get the desired plants to make thorns.  This part should last maybe 2 months. 

    Then we get more info from the quest to plant thorns in fields, this would last another month.

    Would have been pretty fun since we all would begin with no plants and no seeds. 

    Maybe this is a practice run for them to use red leaves because the Royal Inscribers are out of them.
    Focus on what you can do, not what you can't.

    What does this event have anything to do with NL?  Isn't NL pre PSs/AoS/anything.

    Those that can read would see that I Think this would be a good event for NL. And I stand by that.

    One of the nice things about this event is that we are not "forced" to play every day to get the rewards we want.  Other than doing a character transfer and checking on the status of my bright green barrel cacti I did not play UO this last Friday or Saturday. I do not feel stressed out that I took a couple days off from playing.

    They do not have to base it on publications that were done.  It may have crappy weapons and armor but the surrounding gameplay and QoL changes can be from any era. So we can have pre AoS weapons but have post AoS things in the game. Such as menus, Mobs, decorations, and UI.

    But, Basic Britannia with basic available skills.

    Then the next Season can add things, remove things from feedback.

    I went over to the DAoC and they are making a classic server also and it will be like old DAoC with all the QoL addons so I hope UO does the same.
