Sorry, pardon me? I've presented myself with nothing but calm decorum. You come in here launching personal attacks against Klion and denouncing no less than half of another guild as "immature", punctuating said statement with a declaration that you don't even play the game anymore?

I'd be looking to grow up yourself a little bit, and suggest you rethink your line of debate before throwing another ill advised two penneth into a conversation that has little to no effect on you anyway.

That are immature people in every guild and every circle of roleplay on the server, you just have to put up with it and get on. Letting it affect your judgment of entire guilds and communities just isn't productive and it's exactly those sort of prejudices we need to get over if we ARE ever to unite what's left of Europa.

Geronimo may just be making a fool of himself by using this as an opportunity to cry about how evil the members of Grd really are, but he is getting at a highly relevant point. People aren't going to move to Yew because there's a lot of irrational OOC hatred still in the community, and a lot of that is directed against Grd. They will see it as a victory for Grd, and that's something that many can't even contemplate.

That's why if this is going to be done the only possible way would be for -everyone- to move at once. No privilages for any guild, that way no ones pride is hurt.

I said your attitude doesnt really help.. its pretty aggressive even tho its calm...

I said that my experience with Grd is 50% 50% .. if you see that as an attack... then its not much I can do.. Thats how i feel about Grd and what ive experienced in my time.

My attack against Klion? I said I dont like his way of playing.. because it has always been his way or not at all.. You have to agree on that one.

My experience with people who RP gnome mages is similarly 50/50, and I knew a really great guy who rped a very decent gnome mage on WoW. Sorry if you see that as a personal attack. Guess you can't call me on it though, because it was a mere statistic expressing my feelings.

wrong.. Im not crying about how evil Grd, I just dislike how Grd have acted in the past... then its agreed to try again.. and same things happen again. This almost only coming from the guildleader at that time.. Klion.. Doesnt set a good picture on Grd.

But i must say - I've had wonderful RP with other Grd members

Have you actually read anything I've put in this thread? Certainly compared to my usual rantings, I'd say I'm being nothing short of angelic.

I even stood up for VanQa. :kiss:

No, you bitched about Grd as a whole, with an emphasis on Klion. Now you're trying to claim you solely bitched about Klion and not Grd at all.

Oh, and I won't drop to the level of insulting guilds, but you know people in glass houses shouldn't throw stones.

Not as whole.. only 50% ;) well.. 50% aint really right number either.. lets say 35% of the guild that I had interaction with, acted in a way I disliked.. Sure I cant like all - Sure i've disliked how other members from other guilds acted as well... But I never came right with Grd.. and somehow I think i share that feeling with many.

Now lets leave that and focus on.. Since so many posted that Yew is great to do this centralization at.. How about mages? Will they daily be executed and hunted or how shall we interact with them in Yew area?

Each day would be a never ending cycle of capture and burning. I dunno, perhaps ask those Mages who lived in Yew for 6 or so years during the CoY-era how they managed?

Grd and it's like-minded guilds (which, well that's Rbl really lol) will always roleplay that Yew is a region of stubborn, narrow minded Northern citizens who are largely Avatarian and loyalist. And if you run around as a gnome mage, you are going to be in danger of being attacked by Grd, yes.

But then there were mages, outcasts, rebels, criminals, orcs and undead running around CoY before and they just hid from Grd.

Yes they would be - by us at least. We ain't changing our concept to make centralisation easier. If everyone moved at once then that wouldn't be a problem for you since we'd be in the minority in terms of mage/elf hatred, but I certainly wouldn't be particuarly happy with an 'all vs Grd' war in such close quarters.

CoY wasn't a bunch of different militia guilds though, and everyone had to constrain their guild members quite a lot. If everyone remade a bunch of Yewish town themed guilds with similar restrictions, then I wouldn't care if we were still the target of all. Somehow, I don't see that happening ;)

It is very hard as orc to get more interaction than a fight but then that is a problem for itself.

A central community only helps in the short term and would not really help as we all have different playstyles and so went to the communities that support out playstyle already.

There is also no reason why different communities cannot exist side by side, even with little interaction, if playstyles differ.

Problem at the moment is that with the disappearance of guilds here is less and less choice what to play and many get thrown in the mold, losing the difference and variability we once had.

Suggestions for the ones that play non mainstream characters would be to form your own smaller place. Naeloth once was such a place where evildoers could stay and work their evils.

Why would an orc visit other towns except maybe to trade? or attack. You picked a character that lives basically in its own community of orcs and the only way to survive so is with lots of events to keep your guild busy and alive. As you miss out on the easier events to go you need to be very innovative and determined to keep it alive (is why most are dead these days).

Indeed, but Orcs are a minority in the roleplay community as a whole so only perhaps 5% of the entire community would not directly benefit centralisation. That said, a centralised community would benefit the Orc's as they'd have a guaranteed hotspot to raid and the outlying areas to patrol, blockade or whatever Orcs do.

Yew also has an Orc Fort, Orc Mines, an Undead Crypt and a Brigand Fort. So theres plenty on offer for them.

You lose a lot of variety by centralizing and players too that do not make the move.

If such a thing happens, the question needs to be asked , is EA the best choice for that anyway?

Who actually thinks EA supports roleplaying in UO actively?
