Several month later, when the guy had worked his char back and was back to blue status, both him and XlordX attacked me on their mains. A friend of mine came to help me and at the end of the fight XlordX recalled and his friend died.

That house was filled with bags with stacks of 10k in it. Some newb was gating Drax Elvenblade from LOV there. I followed them in the gate with my thief and stole his keys.

A PvP tournament was organized and had between 15 to 20 peeps from various guilds. Three of us had kinda infiltraded the place by taking a gate spawned in town. We started eating the food on the table then the Guild Master of the AoA guild went mad at us for that and started attacking me. He died, and we looted the key off his body. Next 2 hours were fun, since like all the guests started attacking me and my 2 friends :p I made TONS of loot there.</p> <pre></pre> <p><img src="http://www.pvpblog.com/dabox/public/uo-loot/futureboy.jpg" alt="futureboy.jpg" /><br /> <img src="http://www.pvpblog.com/dabox/public/uo-loot/futureboy2.jpg" alt="futureboy2.jpg" /> <br /> <br /> That guy was trying to get an air elemental in his house, so I jumped in with my friend Pyros and we started looting his house, then stole his key. He attacked one of us, and we proceeded to kill him. After that we totally looted clean the place and put what we didn't need on the steps.

They attack me but I manage to kill 2 of them, the rest ending up recalling. On one of them I find a key and a rune, I try them with my main and find that tower :p I then proceeded to gate all their stuff to my courtyard till they arrived and changed the keys.

Since SP was composed of guilds harboring Devs and GMs of the EA/OSI company, these whines soon led to action being taken to shut us down...</p> <p>Over 250 accounts of KoC's and friends of ours were banned in the process. No exact reason was ever given to us to explain us which specific action in game had been assimilated a to a violation of the Ultima Online Terms of Service.</p> <h3>The threatening letter : guilt by association</h3> <p><strong>(associating in a game with players met in that same game can get you banned)</strong></p> <blockquote><p>''Return-Path: &lt;admin@owo.com&gt; From: UO Account Admin &lt;admin@owo.com&gt; Subject: Inappropriate conduct within UO Date: Wed, 1 Dec 1999 20:08:10 -0600</p> <p> Greetings,</p> <p> This letter is to inform you that the Ultima Online Player relations Department of Origin Systems has witnessed various levels of misconduct regarding actions of characters on your account. This misconduct includes being associating with one of the largest guilds in Ultima Online that employ exploitative activities to increase their game status at the expense of other players as well as the game itself.</p> <p> No action is to be taken on your account at this time - this letter serves only as a warning that this conduct has been verified and will not be condoned. In the event that any such actions continue, the offending account will be terminated immediately without any chance of being reopened. This is certainly not at all what we want to do; rather this is the point of this letter as it is what we want to avoid. However the decision to terminate accounts is done with the best interests of the game and its players in mind, and we will move to protect those interests.</p> <p> To have to engage in this discourse is not enjoyable, but at the same time we want to make sure that all parties are aware of what will happen should these actions continue. It is our hope that we can move forward from this and you the customer may enjoy your Ultima Online experience.</p> <p> Thank you for your time, patience, and understanding with this matter.</p> <p> Ultima Online Player Relations Origin Systems, Inc.''</p></blockquote> <p>So basically I'm guilty of hanging in a game with others players this company allowed to play their game.</p> <p>Now that was just a &quot;warning&quot; but within a few days this warning was immediatly converted into a perma ban.</p> <h3>The ban letter</h3> <p><strong>(no precise reason given, the letter is even more vague than the previous one) </strong></p> <blockquote><p>''Return-Path: &lt;admin@owo.com&gt; From: UO Account Admin &lt;admin@owo.com&gt; Subject: Account Termination Date: Thu, 16 Dec 1999 08:58:02 -0600</p> <p> Ultima Online Origin Systems, Inc.</p> <p> Date: 12/16/99</p> <p> At this time your account with Origin Systems has been permanently closed due to repeated violations of the Terms Of Service or the Rules and Regulations.

I had 3 GMs vouching for me to force the GM Lead to actually review my accounts and tell me what I was being accused of instead of just sending me a prefiled letter.</p> <p>Few days later I had my answer and was unbanned on all accounts I had requested to be unbanned, but one which had our GM IP on it and used to be holding the guildhouse/stone on SP...</p> <blockquote><p>''Return-Path: &lt;wleverett@origin.ea.com&gt; From: &quot;Leverett, William&quot; &lt;wleverett@origin.ea.com&gt; To: &quot;'RAK'&quot; &lt;rak92@wanadoo.fr&gt; Subject: RE: From Counselor TMO (Euro shards) about my banned accounts Date: Wed, 29 Dec 1999 12:48:44 -0600</p> <p> Hello,</p> <p> I have completed the in-depth check of your accounts, and the news I have for you is somewhat bittersweet. We have decided to reactivate the accounts jmk and hebus accounts while keeping the other accounts closed. However due to the fact that they still have some recent links to other accounts which were terminated, we will not be returning any of the houses or property owned in those accounts. The characters will still be there but nothing else will be returned.</p> <p> This was about as good as a compromise as we could come up with for this situation. To be honest, it is very unlikely that your account would be reactivated at all without several people coming forward saying that you had been extremely helpful within our volunteer program, which you will still be able to be a part of when the account is reinstated. Had that not occurred, these accounts would have been terminated.</p> <p> While I am happy to reactivate your accounts, I am sorry to say that we were placed in a position that forced us to take some sort of action. I will be happy to help you with whatever else I can. The accounts should be turned on within a few hours, and you will be able to play soon.</p> <p> Again I am sorry that this entire situation has gotten so ugly. Please let me know if there is anything else I can do.</p> <p> William Leverett</p></blockquote> <p>Translation :</p> <p>- They didn't return the houses because they had decayed while the accounts were under their controle, something which he wouldn't admit :p</p> <p>- &quot;Had that not occurred, these accounts would have been terminated&quot; =&gt; In other words, without links within the OSI staff, my accounts would still be wrongly banned.</p> <p>Oh well, I sold both accounts for about a 1000$ total.</p> <p>When I later came back to UO before AOS, I got one of the account back from the guy i sold it to and resold it again a few weeks ago after quitting UO for good.</p> <blockquote><p>Ultima Online Player Relations Origin Systems, Inc.''</p></blockquote> http://www.pvpblog.com/?post/Banned-Ultima-Online.html#comment-form http://www.pvpblog.com/?feed/atom/comments/8
