why haven't seen any players in NG server?

Postby sslaw » Fri Jul 27, 2012 12:28 pm

I'm new, so this is a noob question.

I just started in the NG server using the launcher, been exploring a bit

But I haven't seen a single player, am I doing something wrong?
Or are they all hiding somewhere?

I like the idea of NG, but the skill caps and stat caps are too low imo to do a lot of the higher level maps.

agree
I posted about this some time ago... current cap is equal to around 150 lvl on reg, but you still loose some points (eg. MR, due to not lvl up, like in regular). rising stats cap a little would be good for the NG... but thats only my opinion...

I saw some players, but no hunting parties.
Is there a drop bonus for parties?

300% class skills for non humans is very hard to deal with (hard to mix classes).
how about 400% for non-humans and 500% for humans ?

full party should have 4x drop rate, or u have to grind for days on noGrind server to get some items that u need.

Maybe set the stat cap to the equivalent of a lvl 450 player since that's the cap on reg?

I think the focus on NG should be more no grind , items should come from bosses that u know but they should be harder so that u need at least 2 maxed characters to beat them.

So a boss like Lady Stink should have 25% chance to drop a arty but has double hp and int.
And the Bloodqueen 50% chance of arty but also 2x hp and int.

Hopefully that would encourage more NG players and partys.

heh... I used to love NG.. but as I say many times for now its preety easy to max a character but even maxed is equal to 150 lvl char on reg, and you still loose bonuses for HP and MR (1 point per lvl) becuase you are still 1 lvl..in the end you loose 150 hp and 150 MR... also 150 lvl is a little low for end game playing, ofc you can beat almost everything on normal mode but heroic/epic is to hard to even try (im talking about dragons etc. ofc).

things could change if stat cap would be rised or change the start ratio to x3...
and NG could be more pvp serv (you max char and do pvp/tournaments/arenas) its relatievly fast and all characters will be equal... (at least with stats)

As a new player, the whole reason I came to EUO was to play on the NG server!

It has the rule set of old (good) Ultima Online and none of the bad things (rampant pking). I hear the server might go away which is sad since I am enjoying the heck out of it and even invited some friends to come try it.

I wish there was a way to tweak it or something to try to get more old UO players to come try it. Since I think that is what set it apart.

*crosses fingers and hopes the NG server doesnt get killed*

Even if the NG server is closed, the NG characters will be migrated to REG. If that happend, new characters created on REG will also be given the option to be either be a REG or NG character.

Ah oky, so you would still be classless if/when we get moved to Reg?

yep. NG characters would be governed by NG rules.

I'm still wondering what happens if you have an alt named the same thing on both reg and ng. Does one overwrite the other?

Cool to see some more blood on the old NG server. Correct me if I'm wrong but there is a higher drop rate on NG. If we could get a 3-5 man party going the drops would be popping out a lot.

BTW on this server I am:
Destroyer: Dwarf GM Axefighter(tactics) , 70% monk, 30% priest
Turok 1/2 Troll Fighter of some sort.
CyranoDeQuack (100% block, working on foils, monk, priest)
Punisher 1/2 orc fighter
Drakkhen draconian fighter
Shorty gnome monk
Rambo shadowkin archer
Powermite gnome mage/monk of some sort
Stealeg draconian rogue of some sort
Hephaestus Crafter???
Garth I have no idea.
