I've created a poll where everyone, from every site can vote on.

http://micropoll.com/t/KEBxcZBHSk

It is a multiple choice poll. Please take a few minutes to voice your opinion.

If you feel that more options should be added, please post a reply and I can modify the options.

Thank you.

I'm fine with it for players who don't have time and want to avoid a grind, cause in order to play the MMO part of AC you have to be able to reach a high lvl fast... but realistically all you need to do is get to 150 quickly. I wouldn't mind a system where you could have zones that don't drop rares where you could UCM, but caught outside of those zones and it's a longer term ban (maybe 2-3 months). Cause I think a lot of people have a problem with UCMers having highest chances of weap/armor rares, but not so much the UCMers avoiding the level grind.

With over 105 votes in just a few hours, clearly its a pretty heated topic.

Perhaps we can work together to come up with a solution that appeals to both sides.

Yeah, because you have close friends at Turbine and they really want to know our opinion to change the rules of the game. rolling_eyes

I don't care too much, don't do it myself but if others want to then they can go right ahead.

Turbine ain't stupid, they know what killed their game. Macros, decal and xp chains. Nothing to do about it now with 50-150 players per server.

Spacelord, currently with 152 votes cast, it seems that slightly more players prefer to leave UCM'ers alone vs banning them.

The poll is new though and the results could sway the other way.

Please get the word out so we can get more players voting their opinion.

Actually Housing, split pea, played being too soft, and here is the best part: better games.

That's what really killed AC.

Yep, totally.

Housing was good for storing loot, bad for trading/economy. MP never really fixed that. No longer did groups of people congregate in towns, they were all safely at their houses or at their guild mansions. Towns got deserted really quickly. So it ended up being a mixed blessing.

AC's still better than most games, even with 11 year old graphics. DDO is a very pretty game with pretty good gameplay, but you can only enjoy a closed world for so long before nothing more than an XP grind gets old.
