CC & OO
There is little of redeeming value to say about either of these two guilds. Both are/were
the lowest of the low in all things. Pkillers and NPkillers, drobers, cheats and bug
users to the last man. Even The Mercs hated them.
CC (based around Covetous) was often the center piece of what were called "Server Downtime Battles".
Every morning the server would go down at 11:25am (or there about). About an hour
before the server went down a message would come across that "The Server is Going Down Shortly".
That message meant that after that time, nothing done was saved. This led to huge
battles because there was nothing to lose if you died. Nothing that saved anyway. Many of those
battles took place either on Arx Draconis, The Britain Graveyard, Deceit or at the entrance
OO was a CC ally. Their claim to fame was that they were NPKs. They were NPKs in two forms. First,
before EVs and Bladespirits were changed, you could cast them on people and kill them
with no notoriety hit. OO's only ability in PvP was to hide near the Covetous
entrance and launch those at people. They would never go red and would simply first
off EVs. So if you couldnt EV back, you couldnt hurt them. They would, of course,
heal their CC allies who kept the attackers back so OO could EV.
Of course there did come a time when one CC paid The Syndicate a compliment. He was mascarading
as a Syndicate member at the Vesper bank trying to sell his wares from his smith char.
When approached by a member and asked why he was posing as an LLTS member he replied 'Because
everyone knows LLTS is the best merchants in game and i want to sell my stuff fast.'
Other than that brief pearl of wisdom, CC was nothing but a black spot on UOs history. Often
fought by The Syndicate and always exploiting cheats and bugs (like the leather bug to make you
invulnerable to spells or the harm kill bug.. two of their favorites).
