    I hope not. I was four minutes late as well.. despite my best efforts. *sigh* All I got to see were idiots with dragons right smack in the middle of things causing lag.

    Hopefully we will be included in tomorrow's events even if we missed the first section. (Which I really did expect to last longer than four minutes...)

    Judging from Draconi's posts, you won't be "left out" from the rest of the event.
    You will be missing some "special effects" that will affect those who attended today with blackrock in their backpack, but you can still take part in day two (like all the other people who didn't show up, or who showed up without any blackrock).

    Edit, retracting what I said: according to Draconi's last post, apparently whoever showed up today will see something special tomorrow, blackrock or not.
     
  6. The only piece of information is that Kronos tried casting a spell, but stopped!

    "Bet Wis Ex!"

    Make of this while you can... tomorrow is 23+ hours away.

    As was, I'm assuming, not being 4 minutes late?

    I tried...Had Blackrock in my pack.

    A good idea for us, or a good idea for your crazy plans for us? Any chance that machine detects blackrock held in bank accounts?

    Any way you can answer the actual question of the thread, btw?

    Or is it someplace else and I'm missing it?

    Considering weve been collecting BR for months and months you could have at least run the "Event" for more than 2 minutes, or at least come back and repeat the thing over again. If the time has been posted for at least a week I apoligize, otherwise this seems real cheap.

    It has to be said;

    holding an "event" that has a minuscule time doorway like this is messed up.

    6:00 pm pm on a Friday, and for a mere couple of minutes, are you kidding me?

    That is crapola.

    In fact, the last "event" for Valentine's Day was pretty much crap too.

    I don't come into UHaul anymore cause it is mostly people complaining about stupid stuff that means nothing.

    "Stupid stuff that means nothing" is becoming the wikipedia definition of UO events, so I figure this is the right place to post this.

    I have taken a wait and see attitude with everything you developers have served up since publish 16. I have told countless friends, "wait and give it a chance", only to see them leave and give me their accounts.

    It is becoming like waiting for George Bush to actually complete a sentence with multiple syllables only to hear the English language mangled once again.

    I have got to say this - we looked forward to having an event after work and for the week end, my wife an I.

    What a disappointment.
     
  16. Sorry to whine....

    I guess I'll just find out tomorrow night.

    But if you had missed tonight, and came tomorrow and saw what those who came today get, you'd have been even *more* upset if we'd simply downplayed the importance of today.

    This was posted by Draconi in the other thread. So I guess you are going to be missing out in one way or other tomorrow. I missed it too :&lt;


    But we should keep in mind that they had to do events on multiple shards and this is probably the best way they could have done it without event moderators to help them. I just wish I had not missed it by little bit too.

    So what we get out of this depends upon whether we made it to today's five-second BS "event" and what we did or didn't do with some items that you dropped into the game like a year ago and then basically ignored. Great.

    I know you think this is a big pen-and-paper game and that you're a really clever DM, but the fact of the matter all you're doing is telling 99% of your customers that "Sorry, this isn't really for you!"

    There hasn't been a good event since the Ophidian invasion. Running around Magincia and seeing it empty for the first 98% of the "event" and then being screamed at with "DONT KILL THE MONSTER I WANT RUBBLE" for the last 2% was BS.

    Wow. I figured it wouldn't matter if I missed the beginning of the event since I'm blackrock deprived, but I wasn't expecting it to be over in four minutes. I didn't even bother logging in at twenty after. [​IMG]

    I got off work when the event started and was able to make it home and get in there within 15 minutes so i hope they did a late sweep of all the people to see who had blackrock.

    black rock has always been and still is minable, just not the large pieces
    , kronos showed up, gave a fast speech about what it would be like to find all the blackrock in one shot, tried the machine and it didnt work, said to come back tomorrow and he promises it will work
     
  25. Clueless.

    Not sure why you guys even bother.

    How in the hell can someone call this an event.

    Is this a free game or do we pay for something?

    I wish they would repeat this little intro part before Saturday's event, especially since there was not alot of notice.

    I'm sure many could have made time to attend both days if we had been given the dates further in advance to allow for some planning.

    You didnĀ“t miss anything, Molly. It starts tonight on Europa at 9pm GMT, which will make it 10 CET. Hope you can be there.
     
  31. I was there in legends - early. I didn't miss a single thing! Because NOTHING HAPPENED. I feel bad for those who got there and it was only 4 minutes long, but at least you got to see a bit of fire and kronos.

    Well, since I don't get weekends off, this is just another event in a LONG list of events that I have missed over the last ten and a half years. Why don't you guys show a little love for the cops and firefighters out here that have to work weekends? Would it be so wrong to have an event on a weekday in the early evening sometime? Throw us a bone would ya?

    Considering this quote, and the fact that my RL interfered with my chances of attending day one, I highly doubt I will attend today's event. Other factors are involved, but this quote sealed the deal. Too bad.

    Just finish it, and create the turnin for blackrock and ophid rations, and get me my storage space back, please. This is all I ask [​IMG]

    i feel sad also. so your not alone.. actually i feel angry about it
     
  35. I went to bed last night fuming but over night I realized that in the time I've been playing there were many events I did not or could not attend (usually due to scheduling and lag issues). I'll just add this to the list and move on. So I was 5 minutes late and missed it, there will be other events hopefully that I'll be able to make in the future.

    For tonight, since I'm excluded from the best part of the event (yes, I know I could still watch the lucky ones get their rewards, but no thanks!) I called my brother in law and him and his kids are going to come out for a little rock band/guitar hero impromptu party. I hope everyone who was on for those 2 minutes last night has fun, congrats for winning the event. [​IMG]

    So, isn't that the same as being "left out"? I mean if you missed day one... which didnt even seem to be an event... now you have less of a reason to show up for day two since you dont get whatever the "day-oners" are gonna get extra?

    Safe Travels, Sam

    Is it the blackrock that was at the event the key or is it the person carrying any amount of blackrock the key? Because i do have some friends that couldnt make the exact time but i did carry more than just 1 piece of blackrock...

    Can i hand them one of the pieces that was in attendance and they are good as someone being there on day 1?
     
  43. So again, is tonight's event just for those who were there last night?

    I wish we could get a definite answer to this one.

    Not having any won't stop you from owning up the place.

    Tim "Draconi" Cotten - UO Lead Designer - EA Mythic

    so no the answer is....no
     
  45. After checking everything, I am fairly sure they were 'over-emphasizing' for roleplay purposes the 'wonderful gains' you will get. May get a stat buff of some type that is temporatily, a hp buff, hp/mana regen, etc. I doubt they will be turning you eventually into a uber-dragon stat/hp 90 all resist killing machine (hyperbole) but for 'role-play' purposes I sure had gotten the impression he meant you will get some serious serious buffs if you were there the first day. In retrospect, probably not. For a while I was remembering being like the second one on the shard to have a vorpal blade after fighting my butt off for like 60 hours then a week later seeing them rain from the sky like candy. Well, if that happened to me, why don't I eventually also get these super buffs too? Answer, they aren't super buffs. I am fairly sure. Imagine the screams.
