    Why it requires an active accout? :wall:
    3 months GTC can be added to the cart if the account is expired, 6 months not :(

    it's just me?

    same problem. I think it's an error. But I just had to buy a three months to reactivate account.

    EA logic?
    An open account is trustworthy, everyone else not worth to play?
    :p

    Luckly the code is delivered by mail so I can buy one with another active account. But still a stupid thing :|

    Especially puzzling as I see no reason for it, except to make it harder for new subscribers.

    It's the same ill-considered 'thinking' that means you could not buy game time from UOGamecodes for anyone else you knew who played UO unless you happened to have an active account yourself - there will I'm sure be some sort of smokescreen song and dance about how it's to prevent 'fraud' of some sort, but since as far as I know UO has the only online 'shop' that goes through these silly procedures and constant errors, I'm afraid that false argument without any attempt at supporting information really does not work - unless, of course, everyone else on the internet, including other parts of EA, are all doing it wrong....

    If EA were that bothered, they would sell gametime and gametime cards through their own web stores - they do for other of their mmos, so they have no problem with the general principle of it at all. It's just that EA corporate tend to act as if, and seemingly wish that, UO had nothing to do with them and so it gets strange and shoddy websites you frequently can't get to work properly.

    the ea shop is worst than uogamecodes :D
    italy ea shop:
    - Stygian Abyss upgrade code: 16€
    - 5x Stygian abyss - new account: 0€
    - High Seas booster pack: 1,90€

    Something wrong here too? :D

    I was thinking more of the US store - the regional ones are pretty poor, mainly... although your Italian one beats the UK one!

    Searching for Ultima Online on the UK one gets you the following list

    And yes, it does repeat itself several times and each has it's own 'add to cart' button,, and yes, the same products are both simultaneously available and unavailable (and how the hell can you manage to make a serial code generated by a machine 'unavailable' is also beyond me)!

    Quite why they can't just sell UO-related things direct from their main store remains a mystery to me...
