    I remember a thread, months back, asking ideas about "upcoming" 14th Year Veteran Rewards........

    Well, the Anniversary has come, and gone..........

    November is approaching and I still hear nothing about this Year's 14th Year Veteran Rewards.

    Anyone knows if they are being worked on and when they will be released ?

    Thanks.
     
  2. Yes I do.

    For the past half-decade or so, they've never been on time. Nothing with UO had been on time. It's either been sadistically late or horrifically early (ie: untested).

    Nothing to be surprised about.

    The 14th year reward is..... a parrot that mounts on your shoulder and squawks a lot of lazy questions.:)

    - ;)

    - 14 year rewards are: seeing the 15th! - Right. Right? Hrmm, good question popps.. unfortunately it seems as though the people that give answers are not in the right place, at this time (hey, that's my best guess..).

    - Aye. 'Hope you found this as helpful as your question.

    ...---...

    I got my 14th anniversary awards. I picked the clothing manniqun. How come you haven't gotten yours yet?

    Oops reread the post and realized your are asking about 14th year veterans awards. I was wondering what happened to those too.

    Well, I am not much wondering why they are not out yet, I can understand issues might delay their release to the public, I am just wondering if they are being worked on at all.......

    That is, whether sooner or later we will get them whether before or after Christmas......

    Anyone knows it ?

    No, no one here knows anything about 14 year vet rewards.

    That is, in a nutshell, 0 updates on the topic at this moment in time.

    I mean, Popps, no offense, but the guy who took over for Cal can't be bothered to put down his Twickle-Me-Elmo account to post something about the fact that he's actually, you know, taken over responsibility for the *cough*Ultima Franchise*cough-oooh-we're-impressed-he-oversees-UO-and-China-and-some-silly-web-based-browser-game-that-has-about-as-much-press-as-a-dropped-fry-in-a-Mc-Donald's-parking-lot-cough* in the past, what, two months since he's had the job?

    You're expecting an update on what they're working on?

    Only thing we know for certain is "art." And... those quotation marks serve a dual purpose that I'll just leave alone for now.
     
  10. Might be the fact that UO is running on a skeleton crew atm and it almost feels like the game is slowly dying...sadly I still love the game too but I don't see a bright future for UO.
     
  11. Yes they are being worked on.

    I wouldn't be so sure - even Zeus was subject to the Fates, and Odin to the Norns....

    Thanks for the heads up !!

    It is refreshing to know that UO is still being cared of, I am looking forward to seeing the brilliant additions to the Veteran Rewards that the Developers were able to come up with, for this year.

    I just hope they will not be yet some more useless (IMHO) mounts, we have already more than plenty mounts in the current Veteran Rewards list.......

    All new Veteran Rewards are all nice but no use if not any of my account aged any more for the last months. :( (Since account migration)
     
  20. You too? My account age seems to be stuck, too!

    Perhaps you can give comments on any number of the other things the fan base would like info on. Even just small hints like this one would shut people up for a bit longer

    haha Yes I who own too many parrot birdies on their perches, per shard would love to have a squakin 14 yr. vet parrot sitting on my shoulders sayin pointless things like it just flew in from Delucia and boy are it's wings tired. LOL

    I also would like to have a vet reward SHEEP too, be it 2D or the newer enhanced cliented whatever version of the sheeps, that slipped into 2D UO. :) I think they are CUTE... either way.

    It'd be nice to have a vet statuette of the sheep too, that go Baaaaaaaa at us if turned on, to add to our [art of noise] in our UO homes like mine,
    full of squakin parrot birdies and noisy vet reward statuettes ! :)
