    Its in the air. I think we will have some more details tomorrow. Glimmers of the trade-ins. Advance of the story arc.

    Continued progression.

    Ill predict publish 52 hits 4/23 in all its glory to Origin. A shard near you, 4/25.

    Or would you like the end is near post?+

    That would make sense, lol thats my luck. We'll be moving that weekend , so ya thats our luck lol. But I doubt it will be just that weekend for turn-ins so no sweat. We'll be back up and running probably before the end of the weekend.

    Thats my luck. Im usually away at all story arc endings or changes. But I agree the trade-in will hang around for a while. Probably to long.

    I just hope we have adequate time to test the faction-related changes and that we get some more details about some of them.

    For example, if you can put all your characters on a shard on one account in factions, do they all have to go in the same faction? How does the skill loss timer apply to all those characters? What happens to the other characters on the same account if one character quits factions? Do they start the quit process too or stay in? If they all have to be in the same faction and each has its own quit process, has QA tested to make sure you can actually join a different faction once all your characters are out of the first faction they were all in? That's going to be a hard one to test if we don't get adequate time for the testing AND if we aren't given enough details to do the testing.

    I also hope someone remembers to turn off the rule that says you can't join factions until the character is 30 days old, or else there won't be any testing going on.

    And has fixing stairs so ghosts can finally get out of the SL base affected stairs in any other place? (I thought Hythloth dungeon got a ramp because of this problem. Is the ramp going to be changed back to a staircase?)

    I am torn on your assumpions

    the live event scenerio says sec week may last week may. everything we are told indicates this is still what they are hopeing for. so you with your dates are saying that publish 52 is not the big epic event. my opinion is how important are these changes and how big are these changes. I personnel think that i would want to test these for a week on test and at least a weekend on origin. SO going by that we have 16-17 possible test 23-24 orin and 29 -30 a shard near us. then may 7th finale set up test 13 origin 15 a shard near you and be ready for the finale and epic one to be on a shard near us 27th as I am sure want it to run over memorial weekend and have is so all problems can be fixed 28th or 29 latest. Personnel i think there is some work to do to connect it all and set up why a turn in program so i think pub 52 will not be until second week May. i think thur might have some new attack coming. we need to get gargoyle involed somehow. we need to have a reason to join factions and a result of our doing it. if we are going to have a epic change we need to be bribbed to overthow our corrupt goverment and then come to see ooops should not have been so quick. One thing for sure last week in May better make me log in a lot and pub 52 better have a few interesting turn in not sure if they can do 3 good publishes after doing well with 51 in a stort time 3 months . As at least 2 need to be big time.

    You DO know that the next event publish could very well be an incremental publish to 51, and not actually publish 52?

    They do those types of publishes all the time, especially in the last 18 months. Publishes 46 &amp; 48 had two; publish 47 had four; Publish 45 had SIX, and Publish 43 had THIRTEEN!!!!!!

    Well Congratulations!!

    But Sarphus is right, unless new hubby plays too, you really don't want to blow him off for some game. But if he is, heck my husband and I sent the kids to nana and papas and ordered in for a whole weekend for our 15th anniversary. All we did was play UO, well ok not all, but thats personal.

    hmm ... If we're putting down our bets, I'll take the week after and say 4/30.

    There's that aura of silence that seems to set in when the devs have been bug-hunting too many hours in a row (or else someone else is getting married ... I seem to confuse the signals on those two types of events).

    Ya He plays too ;-) we have both played UO for a very very long time and there is not really a honeymoon planned anyhow, so no worries. After 12 years together we just decided it was finally time to make it official.
     
  22. its rediculous that its had to take this long cmon 1 month of the same stuff before something changes?

    I assume you're talking about the publish and not the marriage?
