    We've scared, literally scared, most of the PvPers away... not even talking about the PKs... everyone but Abydos left feeling insulted. I've warned about a few dozen times it would happen before they left in droves, and even Envy was argumenting against me !

    and yes sadly I must concur, its buggy, about half my heals do not even register to the server, sometimes my character attempts to heal an enemy and of course that gets no response from the server, targetting sometimes gets removed or switches randomly and the red highlight is still there...

    It'll have to be another release for me...

    Was I? certainly wasn't arguing against you with regards to all the bugs and the most ridiculous and unwarranted nerf I have ever seen (innates). Those are the two reasons I refuse to have any real part in PvP; my outlook wont change until the system changes to the extent that I can hold my head up high and actually recommend the game to my friends.

    Indeed, you were just saying that the dev priority list was fine and we should wait for more functionality. I was saying I wasn't asking for direct functionality, but just to keep the game "open" concept to include all kind of players who were loyal to UO's pvp and rp systems.

    It wasn't a real argument... we just didn't agree on what should be discussed and left "open"...

    so...is the grudge match part tied to a zone and involving everyone who has signed up. Heh I see HOOKLINER signed up, explaining why he hesitated when he saw me the other day. Don't worry I am an easy kill too.

    Or am I just looking out for who I am paired with on the chart?

    Is the swiss tournamnet also world wide or will it be contained in an event?

    In my humble opinion the PVP system changed significantly for the positive from R11-R16. However, R-17 put us into the buggiest client I have yet seen. Spells do not register. Innates were nerfed. Apparently I have to hit level 100 to have the innates I had at level 60 in prior releases. Oh and my client crashes now, never happened before. Everything feels cheap, glitchy, and unstable. I am very displeased with this release.

    Yup, yup... I agree with glyphs not registering correctly across the board which has deterred PvP and even PvE in R17. Not to sound like a mod, but perhaps we should take this to the bug/feedback forum ;) I haven't had the opportunity to get my input fully drawn out on the situation, but I'm sure, and hope, it's going to be fixed with a patch during this release.

    I'm okay with off topic on this thread as it's related to pvp and the event is pvp. Thanks for respecting the OP Bambino, most don't and I really appreciate that.

    To respond to everyone on what I know: the devs know and they're working on fixing it.

    That said, I still like to kill people and we're all evenly bugged so... ^.^ shall we dance?

    Our apologies for the combat bugs you are experiencing in R17. Please make sure you post your bugs in the R17 Bug Form as the team isn't scanning every single forum thread to find these issues. As Violation stated, the team knows of several of these issues and are working on them.
