No reds in Tram. I left Fel to get away from other players who were attacking me.
and there totally wouldn't be any problem re-establishing that they should be red when they returned to fel?
Just a couple of questionsWhy are Reds a "very important part of UO"?If it is such a important and enjoyable part of the game why do pardons sell out as soon as the are put on a vendor?Every payed account has 6 characters per shard so can't you afford one to be red and the rest blue?If it's your thing fine but I and a large portion of players don't find PvP fun and it should have some penalties to match the increased rewards of Fel.
Ok, as the games greatest ever anti PK of all time, I guess I have a right to respond.
I am not really for this idea. I think the system is ok as it is.
A few responses to points raised, in no order;
(By the way, I do believe all players should have access to all landmasses - under Felucca rules). For me, that is the real fix here.
I understand some ppl wanting disadvantages for reds for rp purposes. But come on now, there are almost no reds left in UO. It is quite obvious the disadvantage has gone way too far, way past the point of balance. They already have enough disadvantages such as being freely attackable by anyone, and not being able to initiate combat in guard zones.
I get your point, but I don't think it is because the disadvantages have gone too far, I think the advantages of Trammel loot and landmasses have gone too far, they have made being Red unappealing.
Additionally, much of the game has gone towards Oranges and PvP, most of the PvP now is centered around Oranges at Spawns, Yew gate etc.
All of this has made the concept of being a Red, almost obsolete, except for a few die-hards - who I do have admiration for by the way. I just don't see the point of making things easier for them. Next people will be asking for Trammel rulesets and to be given free multi million stuff at EM events...…….
I think whilst I get your point, for me, fixes lie in another direction.
I would also like to point out that the big red vs blue battles of the past were a good way for newer players to participate and learn about pvp. Now that is gone as well, and getting into pvp for a new player is much more difficult.
The game has evolved in some senses, and got smaller in others.
In the old days, the game had the numbers for this randomness, for Reds to hit large numbers of random Blues. The game is now smaller in this sense.
Nowadays however, the Guilds have evolved. They are far more co-ordinated, and the battles are usually between guilds, the newer players still get their experience, just in a guild setting. And again, the majority of this is now Orange on Orange.
Tempest, had to watch the Matrix before responding.
Going for the last marginal gain, perfection, I agree with. But gimping yourself to rely on something that is outside of your control is not wise. ie, who the next governor is, what buff they may feel like putting on the town, the town running out of gold. I have seen too many times, blue/orange pvpers not able to pvp because they couldn't get the town buff they needed. So even if reds have access to town buffs, they then have the potential to be disabled by factors out of their control. That's not much help.
Re Royal Pardons, however you look at it, it takes an honest player 5 hours minimum to obtain one for themselves by playing it. The fact duping/Trammel/scripting/gold sites/whatever may have completely screwed up the game economy is not the debate here. Unless you are duping them, Royal Pardons are not instantly created.
Both Royal Pardons, and Forged Pardons imo give compelling content. Of course VvV could give better rewards to boost it, rather than some crappy antique stuff.
Your final paragraph, I hate Trammel ruleset, what can I say.
Sure let reds in Tram, and let them be attackable in Tram. Allow them to try and defend themselves, of course. But, hey, everyone is griping for more PvP.And all we hear is Fel players crying "Risk vs Reward"So sure, come to Tram all you want, but being red means you are freely attackable by anyone at any time.This....
We will trade'ja FC1 in Felucca for Powerscrolls at Tram Champ spawns. Seem like a fair trade?
