How do I get on the drop list ?

I"m one of those conspiracy theorists that believes some accounts are tagged to not receive drops of any kind, even simple stuff like Halloween. I get candy and Evil Twin teleports and that's pretty much it, GM Begging from way back yet I see others listing every high drop in every color. Siege has a group of regulars that every year have every item on vendors for sale, mere days after the content starts.

Am I alone in this feeling ?

    You are not alone.

    I played up until 03 then left came back in 09 been playing since then off and on. Have gone to over 200 em events over 1000 champ spawns and other mobs. I only recived one em item in 09. And a few other items. But after I told the em that his drop disappeared while locked down in my private house. I have not received anything good at any spawn or em event. Even went to a year of em events for the knights quest line on alt. Did not even get a sash that eveyone got. 

    So your not alone.

    I've been playing UO on and off for 18ish years. I've never gotten a major drop. I used to do doom all the time, and I got 1 arti (crown of anc Harry I believe) in probably 100 runs. I rarely get good 120 PS. Usually all 110s. This subject was brought up on the other forum as well. Some people just do seem to get more drops. Maybe it's rng, maybe it's not. I lean towards not.

    This is pretty ridiculous, first the coding is off because you can Trick or Treat one NPC of a certain type, and in the next moment "There is little chance of getting candy from that", from the exact same NPC type. Another hour of trying this and every 3rd or 4th success is a Naughty Twin teleporting me all over creation. This is fine on the safety of production shards, but it's not very fun on Siege...Yeah Yeah I know, risk vs reward blah blah blah...I see no reward, at least for my account.

    If there’s a list, I’m on it. Very rarely do I not get an event drop. The trick is to be in a full party of 10.
    I tell you the truth, tis better to do 10 damage on the right target than 100 damage on the wrong target.

    I believe that it’s character, not account. On two separate characters dong a spawn one averages 4 per spawn and another 9. 

    The one who gets 9 does more damage and I believe that plays a factor. But even when I’m not really grinding the drop rate is higher.

    How many of those '10' are you controlling? If I may be so bold as to inquire...

    I got 1 new silly pumpkin and the new dragon deed within 30 minutes the first day
    im now about 16 hours into the trick of treating and have only got 2 small black weds same direction and two covered chairs 

    something seems broke, but then again pretty much everything in UO has become an insanely boring grind fest.

    im lucky to log in 30 days out of the year anymore, wondering why I even bother paying.
    Getting closer ever day to just letting this game go, doesn’t seem to be any fun for me anymore. 

    I hooe UO last anther 20 years though I really do.

    This always makes me think of when people try to convince me eating has no effect on game play. I usually eat or kill myself when I feel something isn't right. (not that I need to I die enough to the environment.)

    Eating can make you full so that you are unable to eat an Enchanted Apple when you need to.

    For a couple of years now, I've noticed that if I play a character I haven't played in a few months or even more than a year, that character will get decent loot the first time I take it out hunting.  After that, it's just a grind again and loot is terrible until I give that character another long vacation.
