When I left UO, I was a 3 yr vet. I had come in when we had both Trammel and Felucca, but they hadn't converted Fel to be more like Trammel until later when kids started to gripe about being "owned" as some might say.
What I liked about Felucca being Fel, was since this whole thing was placed on a theme of bandits, knights [chaos and I forget the other *laughs*], and then of course, they had the star room opened [if you had a rune to it], and it was a time, you found out about the Star Room if you went to the library and read [which now is defunct].
I liked Felucca being the hard core people that if, yes, you went there and weren't prepared, they could "own" you. But then again, if you made friends, you could also get 'protection" from them as well.
I agree, that the housing should have been handled a different way. But then, I would have to disagree about how loose UO was about allowing people to sell things on Ebay.
I had to laugh when one lady spent..get this. $1,500 in REAL money for a PIXEL large tower! I mean, sorry, but if I had that kind of money, I would put it in a new transmission for my van. *grins* But, it was her money, I agree. But it tells you how lame they made the system.
I think if anything, They should have made the housing more for "guilds" and allowed for those within thus said guilds, to have ability to place "chests" to hold more items per area.
I mean, after all, yes, I ended up with 3 houses, which I gave away when I left UO rather then put it all on Ebay. But..I think that since ..
1. you can't use the bed, why have one in your house. 2. if you grandfather'ed a house, why worry about being there or not.
Again, I did appreciate some large marbles who made merchants possible for your people to sell things crafted and as well as Items you brought up from treasure hunting or the like.
Then another thing that turned me away from UO was when you worked hard to get GM in something, they turned around where you had to get a scroll to get higher.
I don't know..between messing with the realms, the rares, the classes, and the like, I got frustrated and moved on. I don't regret it at all.
I went on to DAoC [Dark Ages of Camelot], when a friend on UO told me about it coming out. I was one of the first to sign up when it first was released.
I am still there after 2 years. Yes, I've seen some changes, and I expect more to come. But 1. I don't have to deal with those people who use Ebay to get things. 2. The housing is in a special location, not to take away from the game. [Mind you, they could work on the seating abilities of the furniture you're allowed to have in your house. *chuckles*]
And I look forward to the frontier changes I hear are to come.
One last thing I hate about any MMORPG..that's when they dress up a box to look ONE way..and when you install it, it looks completely different!
For example. I was ALL excited when THE THIRD DAWN was to be released by the box..but when I got it opened and the women looked more like a guy in drag..*shudders*
I guess that's another reason why I like DAoC. You get what you paid for.
Now, if a game came out. The box was EXACTLY what the graphics were inside...It looked more realistic and not cartoony...it might catch my eye to check out.
But that's my 2 cents worth anyways.
As for leveling? Whatever floats your boat. With any game, sometimes people are stuck with making two accounts because they can never find a group. So I don't begrudge them.
What would be nice though is..if you come on a ROLE PLAY SERVER...not a regular one..PLAY it that way.
I've to the point that when people use net slang on a role playing server, they are trying for us to accept their net slang as gibberish that perhaps a street urchin, or some poor backwoods guy would use to gain attention.
*laughs* It's cute on MSN, its cute on the boards..but on a ROLE PLAYING SERVER of DAoC...all I can think of is some zombie sucked out their brains.
Here is to a great NEW YEAR for ALL of US!
Now..what is YOUR favorite MMORPG and why?
Live Life to its Fullest!
