Well played! It's been an honor fighting with you guys, as well as a lot of fun. Now that the battle is coming to an end, we can have that dance party we talked about. --Goolina Gore Corps 23:53, 25 May 2007 (BST)

Oi! I totally agree. It was a great time fighting beside you, and later, fighting against you. This was the first major siege I had been a part of, and I daresay, you guys(everyone involved) made it very fun. Hell, even the trenchcoaters that regularly plagued me said some funny crap. All in all, I was very happy with it, even though we lost. Looking forward to the dance party! --TigerfangredRRF 00:49, 26 May 2007 (BST)
I'm going to concur with the awesomeness. My first major battle in Urban Dead has been extremely satisfying. Killed me a couple zed's, healed a lot of survivors, stood in the meat shields, got my bra!nz eaten a few times. Good times, everyone! RRF and others, it was truly an honor to do battle with you. I experienced such a taste of Barhah that I've decided I will certainly be joining you sometime in the future. --Tiamare
On behalf of the Five Critics Group, we salute you players. No amount of chest pounding or bantering can take away from an amazing battle. This battle took form almost simultaneously as we did, and as iron sharpens iron, our success can only be on account of such foes as the RRF and allies like the Beavers. Great job to you all. While we'll still be on the look out for your group, we bask in the chance to finally rest for a moment. --Benzac 05:47, 26 May 2007 (BST) (univest)

Hey! I did not see any mention of our tiny little group who fight as they could! It seems you zambahz found my brain so tasty, as I have been eaten very very fast each time you enforced barricades. With much respect, we are very proud having been teached so well by a soooo great zombie group. Though, you were ennemies, Beavers and allies teached us MUCH too. Regards. -- I Hate Cats 09:43, 26 May 2007 (BST)

Wow - so it is finally over, I can't really add anything more than what has already been said by everyone else. It was an amazing fight from both sides. I am quite relieved it is over now so I can now spend some more time in another game called Real Life (TM) instead of having to constantly check in every few hours to maintain the barricades. Perhaps I can have my own Hospital back now (for more than just a few days)..?

BTW: I don't think they were mentioned, but the Burchell Arms Regulars (B.A.R.) were also in the fight - they run The Knight Arms in NW Santlerville.--Sunil 09:54, 26 May 2007 (BST)

Oi. Sorry I didn't get a complete account from the survivor perspective. I played this battle from the zombie side and didn't have a complete picture of all the harmanz involved when I put the page together. I just know that it was an insane battle. Hats off. -- Murray Jay Suskind 01:34, 27 May 2007 (BST)

Hey there, i was glad to find a page about the Battle of Santlerville, but mildly dismayed to find that the group im a manager for The Burchell Arms Regulars werent mentioned! So i added us where we were relevant! Thanks for remembering us Sunil! --SamtheMan 17:54, 28 May 2007 (BST)

Congratulations from Metal Fox. It was an honor fighting beside you all. It was a well-earned victory. This was my group's first battle since our formation and it was great. Almost brought a tear to my eye seeing all the groups join together to form such a well-formed coalition :-p. Can't wait to fight with you guys again. Thanks for the fight! You guys faced impossible odds and did what you could. Good luck in your next siege. Jaydepps 19:48, 28 May 2007 (BST)

Now I don't wanna jump on the bandwagon and complain that we weren't mentioned... but... well the Beatbox Kids played a part in this too. I'm not looking for all the glory, just a bit more recognition than being listed as a "resident group". We maintained our own revive point for gosh sakes - even if it did get a bit out of hand at one stage, but with 15 of us we did get it under control. Anyway, I'll add us in - and don't worry, I'll be unbiased.--Nallan 08:48, 1 June 2007 (BST)

I really don't mean to belittle anyone who played a part in that awesome fight - far from it. I think the reality of the situation, though, is that if everyone who played a significant (if quiet) role in the battle were given due credit, this would just be one enormous props page, with the coherent writeup of what actually happened lost somewhere at the bottom. It was a great battle, and it took many many sharp and dedicated players on both sides to make it happen. Thank all of you. --Mold 23:40, 4 June 2007 (BST)

Motion to add IB legionaires

We were highly effective in clearing out the SW corner. In fact, we were the first ones there. Pisic25 and I were there holding the hospital when others finally came after two days.(there were a few others there too). We'd just like credit be given to the legionaires for the SW. I know we're already mentioned in the groups section, but we'd like to be added to the part we contributed to. Thoughts?--Tigerfangred 23:57, 28 February 2008 (UTC)

Words of Advice

Don't be like Caiger Mall after the first two sieges there. The groups that defended Santlerville are too good and too effective to permanently station themselves there. When the other zombie groups in Santlerville leave, go out and see Malton, participate in other battles. Hone your skills in suburbs without malls that are harder to defend. If you build up a mythology and symbolism in Santlerville that the survivors at Caiger Mall did, it will be dashed after months of neglected skills and dwindling gameplay and with the appearance of the next Shacknews, Mall Tour or other mega-horde. That being said, don't just follow the RRF around, either. ;) -- Murray Jay Suskind 01:47, 27 May 2007 (BST)

Possible inaccuracy

The main page states that 100 zombies were involved at the start, but, speaking as a member of the siege of Dewes since near the start, I counted 100 standing and 100+ dead, even after the building was secure. --Incryom 19:08, 27 May 2007 (EST)

More inaccuracy

THE Gore Corps IS NOT A GRIEFER GROUP. We were an important part of the siege. I DEMAND that the Gore Corps be moved up to Zombie groups. IF noone responds in 24 hours ill move it myself. --TheLurker7 02:53, 5 June 2007 (BST)

Umm, couldn't you have just move it yourself anyway without resorting to CAPS AND GENERAL SHOUTING..?--Sunil 13:02, 5 June 2007 (BST)
I moved it yesterday. LOUD NOISES! --Goolina Gore Corps 18:31, 5 June 2007 (BST)
HRARARARH BARHAH!--Sunil 23:49, 5 June 2007 (BST)

Great Article, fun seige.

Nice article. I'm glad to see the Battle of Santlerville get a proper write up! The wiki, and its extensive reporting of the in game struggle is really what makes UD a great game to play and be a part of I really enjoyed the battle to, even if the breathers did win. Dowdney and the rest of Santlerville were certainly better defended this time than during the Mall Tour '07, and I'm glad to see the survivors put in a good showing after all the fun with the Mall Tour I was worried that things were getting too easy for zombies. (There's no glory in victory if it's become easy!) --Electrasol 01:17, 1 June 2007 (BST)

As much as the Santlerville area was shamed by Mall Tour's exploitation of terrible mall defense, it helped give the RRF a false sense of security when they moved into the area. Thinking they could quickly crack Dewes and then Dowdney gave me the time I needed to start making calls for help. --Sexy Rexy Grossman 03:07, 14 June 2007 (BST)

Too Many Group References

I think we've got too many references in the battle description. I think its fine if every group wants to be shown as highly involved in the battle's key moments. Then again, look at the following sentence:

Also, the Cannonball Crew, Upper Left Corner, Metal Fox, US Army Infantry, Five Critics, the Sons of Abraham and the Beatbox Kids were very effective in clearing zombies out of buildings and flooding overwhelming numbers to the newest zombie target.

That's just way too many group references! Plus, it discounts the amount of unaffiliated/ungrouped but highly organized survivors who also participated. With all due respect to these groups who helped Santerville, I want to change most of these references to the simple and effective phrase of "the organized survivors". Are there any objections? --Sexy Rexy Grossman 04:09, 19 June 2007 (BST)

No. None.--Nallan 11:16, 19 June 2007 (BST)
The list of groups at the bottom of the page was supposed to cover this, I guess we're all after fame. Something like "the organised (hehe - with UK spelling) survivors (see bottom).." really ought to be sufficient.--Sunil 16:23, 19 June 2007 (BST)

Okay, I've made my changes (history here). I also added a lot more infromation about the first part of the siege from April. --Sexy Rexy Grossman 04:47, 23 June 2007 (BST)


Who is Redwave? I've never heard of him.--Xshu 01:21, 12 November 2007 (UTC)
