PVP CURRENT ABUSE

There is a new PvP abuse that a certain Legion guild and other group are doing on Atlantic, they have some sort of auto drop bagballs in between houses that trap players and get them killed because you cant pass the bagballs.
Other guild drop bagballs and crates at dungeon entrances and telepads to prevent players to go in or out.

Pls @Mesanna and @Kyronix is time to change the bagballs and crates and make them passable, just like any other boxes and gift boxes that you can just pass thru. Pls is time to address this matter, since paging a GM take weeks to get a non response.

    I do not see how 'putting an item on the ground' is 'abuse.' Are you just asking that they change the game every time somebody kills you?

    File a harassment report.  Blocking other players use to be against the rules, not sure about now.
    Very hard to find any rules reguarding UO ToS

    @Mariah could you provide a like to UOs current ToS/User Agreement that states UO Game Play does and don'ts

    FYI unapproved 3rd party programs are already illegal, do you want them to formally make them MORE illegal?

    If the extent of ultima pvp was fighting in a one tile funnel in between houses I would see the problem, however it isnt, and you can choose to just.. not walk there? #counterplay
  • BilboBilbo Posts: 2,834
    TY @Nikard ; I guess that last one is their catch all one.  There use to be a blocking rule, it was mainly abused in the dungeons to make it where spawn couldn't get you.  They basically made everything walk through, wounder why Bag Balls were left off the list.
  • MordredMordred Posts: 102
    another abuse og bagball!
    this is happening Everyday @Mesanna, enough is enough Please
    someone is harassing this vendor house everyday on Atlantic

    looks like you are on the EC. 
    I heard there is a scavenge feature that will pick stuff off the ground(like reagents), so why not use that to grab bagballs?
  • BilboBilbo Posts: 2,834
    The point is he should not have to  do that and this is pure harassment.
  • This is not a new problem. Don't expect anything to be done because Mesanna won't. I don't know why anyone bothers to complain. :(   This was used as part of a campaign of harassment against me last year.  The forum Moderator deleted the thread and screen shots when I posted about it. The perpetrators were not punished other that Mesanna "yelling" at them in game and threatening them with a ban.  There should have been NO threat just banning of the perpetrators.  Mesanna didn't not even address it until it had been going on nonstop for 4 days and after something like 10 -15 people (including sis and I) had reported it to a GM with NO response. In fact one GM told sis and I that what they were doing was 100% LEGAL and not against the TOS.  The final slap in the face was that I was threatened with a permaban for cussing.  Talk about victim shaming and blaming.  
  • MordredMordred Posts: 102
    The point is , they need to make ALL containers type "passable" items, just like gift boxes, I dont even know why we have bagballs in the game, people only use them to block peoples gate, block monsters (also illegal) , block dungeons entrance, block start room and I can go over and over, so why not change all containers to match gift boxes that you can just pass thru.
  • UrgeUrge Posts: 775
    I don't think any GM ques go thru while dead. It would be extremely hard to place a report in a fel situation. Even then a GM has to actually see a player placing items before actions are taken. 

    Be glad it's just bagballs. In my younger years in fel we used to fill them with logs and my personal favorite was axing a crate of candelabras. Those can be a real boogar. 
  • MissEMissE Posts: 774
    Thought they changed it so bag balls go 'poof' pretty quickly now.  They certainly do whenever I put em down, no matter where I put em down.

    Cheers MissE

  • As long as there's a path it isn't illegal. Doesn't make it any less crappy, but that's the rule.

    Oh that Atlantic Yew shop. And WHY is this shop being "harassed"?

    Every day, almost every hour or so, you will notice a hidden ninja bot stealth around Luna bank and about, dropping runes that lead to his shop.

    And if you go and wait at this shop, you can easily see this bot is fully automated, busy marking runes and recalling to Luna to drop off the runes. I'm surprised that all these years no one actually noticed this and did something about it.

    And IF you have read threads from other forums regarding a specific Doom Guardian Room scriptor, you'll notice this shop's crafter names is just that.

    This shop belongs to one biggest and oldest scriptor who is not afraid of getting paged AT ALL.
    All that effort of doing this is for selling gold, of course, as you could easily see traces of this owner on some other forums.

    So, as far as the big picture is concerned, someone is doing some sweet JUSTICE for us.
  • MordredMordred Posts: 102
    @Radst , so you justify the act against "someone" that is "supposed" breaking any rules and using your own words "you will notice" , means you are not 100% sure, Even if you were "sure" you need to Page on them, but than you decide to Break the ToS and you decide to block his house with bagballs to prevent people to go buy from his shop?, so is ok to you break the rules? bc you feel like he deserve?, this is no difference than the guy dropping runes everyday "shop on this shop" instead of this one (that is harassment too) or the other guy that open moongates right on front of someone else shop, saying the same thing, or for those that use bots to "pretend" to buy an item of 1 vendor just so others cant. I mean no wonder everything is going bananas, because of PEOPLE like you!.  Why people cant mind their own business and leave the others alone!!!

    I am Glad @Mesanna posted this message:

    We have also become aware of a number of issues related to the use of impassable objects to impact other players in the game world.  Please be aware that GMs will no longer be issuing warnings for these violations and those abusing these items will face immediate action on their accounts.  Violators will receive a 72 hour ban.  We take this very seriously and we hope by doing this the behavior stops.

    If I see someone doing, I will page as well...
