5 Years Old

  1. Yep, my account hit 5 yrs today. It snuck up on me. I'd forgotten it was coming up. Great thing is that due to the change in soulstones in removing the timer I can save this year's reward for a later year. :thumbup:

    Here's to another 5!:pint:

    If this game is even around in 5 more years :p

    Of course I didn't expect it to still be around now...so I guess it isn't that far fetched to expect it to be around 5 years from now :D

    At least someone's accounts updating to the right age...i'm still waiting for mine to make it to 72 months and it's said I have a month 2 wait for the last 2 months. Happy birthday
     
  13. Thanks all! I decided not to use any of my picks this year. Anything that I do want I can just buy from someone else for much less than what my pick will be worth in a few more years.

    Your account is only 5 years old??? I could have sworn you've been around forever! I truly mean that in a positive way. You are so helpful and knowledgeable that I assumed that you had been around almost since the beginning!

    Happy 5th Anniversary!

    Congratulations Connor. Eight years for me. Are you sure it's only five for you? You seem to be very knowledgable about the game. :thumbup:

    Congrats on reaching your 5 year mark! And a second congrats for figuring out the secret of vet rewards!

    It's been only 5 years? It really seems a lot longer, you calculating by when you started or by account age?

    I recall you were playing WOW and stopped UO subs for a year right?

    I have been lurking on the boards prior to the stratics crash, but I recall your ABM posts.

    Personally, I worth much more a 5 years account in the hands of a player who started it and kept it all 5 years active than a 12th year account that was active only because it was bought and sold multiple times in between....

    To me, loyalty means the same customer sticking with that product/company over the years, truly loyally.

    I'd love to see some "special" veteran rewards, along side with the ones we have now, which only apply to those players who can actually prove, either with the original first year registration code, or with the original first year credit card information, their continued and endured loyalty over the years.

    Like if one can prove he/she has owned and kept the account for 5 years providing the original registration code or the original credit card informations they get some very very special cool reward. Same with 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11 and 12 years.

    Of course, the more the years' loyalty the better the special reward.

    I think it as important to reward the player, not the mere account for their loyalty.

    The only way to do this, I would imagine, is by requiring to claim the very special loyalty reward, proof of the original registration like the original regiistration code or the original credit card informations.

    By the way, congratulations Connor.
     
  25. Thank you! :danceb:


    I took an 11 month break from UO, but kept paying to keep the account open, so I'm going by the account age itself. I'd invested too much effort, even at that early point, to just drop UO for good. It's a good thing my foresight was 20/20 in hindsight. :thumbsup:


    Ah yes, the infamous ABM posts. Too bad no one kept the tradition going. It's been some time since I saw an ABM.
     
  26. Thank you! Yeah, 60 months on my account. I've learned a large amount about the inner workings of the game over the past 3 years thanks in large part to several people here on Stratics along with a few close friends in game. That and my isatiable drive to know, really know, what makes things tick taught me a lot about the game and how different things affect each other.

    It's just a good thing that I enjoy reading. :D
