Announcing the PvP Focus Group!
Jeremy Dalberg
11 Jul 2007 21:31:03 EST


With the changing of the schedule of Stygian Abyss, we’re going to be making some necessary PvP changes sooner rather than later. We have a large number of avid PvPers, and we definitely want you folks to be involved in the process of suggesting, discussing, and prioritizing our plans. To that end, we will be creating a PvP Focus Group on the EA Mythic forums, and we are looking to solicit applications!

To apply, send an email to jdalberg AT ea DOT com with the following:

  • Subject Line: PvP Focus Group
  • Real Name:
  • Account Name(s)
  • Current Subscriber?
  • Red or Blue?
  • Do you play factions?
  • If yes, which faction(s)?


If you are selected, you will receive an email that contains the information you need to get on the internal forums. Applications will be processed on a first-come, first-serve basis, assuming they are qualified. This is a trial run of the focus group system, and if it is successful, it’s a system we will likely use for similar projects in the future.

I'd rather see you try, then alot of the others who will be putting in their applications.I am confident that you will contribute in a positive way, instead of trying to find an exploit to continue using their cheats and hacks like many of the others.

Me too. Better hop on KR and see what needs to be improved. That will be their main goal.

If I can use all my macros in KR like I can with UOA in the 2d client I will give it a shot. Still looking for the macro in KR that "attacks selected target" like in the 2D.

I hope there are a few good PVPers still playing and they get selected. The most qualified person I know of is refusing to apply and I am definitely not getting picked after posting that stuff about the Wintermoor resolution. Oh well.

Perhaps Dip (Dip has PvP with a red, blue, and with/as factions) will join with a little encouraging from his peers. *Looks at Ben, Snuggs and the rest of UO:F*

I think Maddux, Dip & Ben should all join. You can be the 3 stooges, or even better, the 3 Amigos! :)

Well rub butter on my beautiful butt and call me a croissant!

As much as I would love to accompany Dip and Ben on this Journey into Developer PvP Enlightenment, they must make this journey without me. For the time of the Elves is almost over here. Many are making their way to the coast now to catch the Black Ships to Valinor & Beyond and I will eventually join them.

I don't think I'd be a good fit. Too many people rely on items and would outnumber me when it comes to powering them down.

Plus, as Ben said, if (and I know they don't... yet) my macros in 2D don't work in KR there is no PvP in KR (atleast not while the 2D client exists).

Thanks again Maddux!

Adam: aye and in order to expedite the production of solidiers, i kill off the old people (Carp was right, Adam IS evil!)

I am still too slow in KR compared to people using 2d, Paul and I tested it, therefore, PVP will not exsist in KR untill either 2d is gone or they make some changes to kr.

Hope you rethink your position Dip. We need people in the focus group who think items need to be reworked. Other wise the item junkies will push for bigger and better items. EA will look at what the focus group wants (may or may not implement it) but base the future on what comes out of it. Guess it is kind of liking voting. If you don't vote, you shouldn't complain about what politicians do. If you vote, complain all you want. If people don't try to get in the focus group, guess they shouldn't complain about what comes out of the focus group :-/

Considering with every expansion they've made they added items to supplant skills I highly doubt they'd take it all back. It seems the norm for new items to come out that take away from the value of skills.

I may get in it still.
