I am not going to go into detail about why, but for personal reasons and a drastically changed life situation i wasnt able to spend as much time playing this game as initially planned. In order to have any space when returning, i plotted a lot of land outside a few places i wanted to build on. Without knowing at that point, I actually plotted according to the later released CoC. I never plotted anyone in, and especially in Ultima i plotted a lane behind the existing ones in order to build a street and create shop plots. There was nothing behind my plots at that point, the only existing plot i connected to the streetsystem. For that very reason i connected two points at each crossing. After a chat with Hama i released those plots again and he took them over with an alt.
I used this name on the official Discord, the Ultima Discord (until i left it) and on this forum ofc. Shouldnt have been that hard to get a hold of me, a lot of people actually did. Whenver i was asked for plots i handed them over, always for free ofc. Without that plotting, quite a few people wouldnt not have been able to expand their shops and builds that late into the game.
The players that are now “plotted in” are actually people i handed plots over to, for free ofc. They were well aware of the fact that they got a 3x3 slot in an existing road system.
I used the little time at hand to coordinate with people to hand over plots they needed and responded whenever asked. But quite frankly, at a certain point people just got outright rude. If you start “demanding”, i start ignoring.
I did not break any Code of Conduct or violate any rules. I didnt grab plots to “speculate” or to grieve other players. I use the very gleam club that actually pays for the development of this game to fuel my beacons, and i did that in order to support a game i spent a lot of time in during the beta. If you have an issue with that system go talk to the developers, i didnt come up with it.
I get a certain level of frustration, and it wasnt my intention to rub anyone the wrong way. but you are also not going to tell me how to play the game as long as my actions are well within the rules of said game. I will try to bring my personal misfortune and health problems more in line with all of your gaming needs next time. It should also be possible to just take a break?
If you want to open the can of worms of taking payed for plots away from someone who didnt break any rules… be my guest.
Dont bother to reply, im not interested in a discussion, but i wont let it stand that i boxed players in or put down plots to grieve players.
