    Stupidly short notice, which is why I suspect the automated feed hasn't caught it and posted yet, but

    I wonder if this is a sign that Origin has lost its status as a "test shard" or if skipping an Origin publish is just another EA money-saving shortcut.

    Or it's just a small publish and they haven't had or heard of any problems from Test Center.

    The Stratics Feed caught it about 6 minutes after it hit the UO-Herald. http://vboards.stratics.com/uhall/233150-%5Buo-herald%5D-publish-69-5-world-wide-release-today.html

    And claims it posted here at 5:pM, almost an hour and a half before the timestamp on my post .... so why wasn't it visible, since I sure as hell looked VERY hard before I posted anything?

    Edit : Solved, thanks to Kelmo for explaining what happened - apparently the Herald feed needed mod approval for the post, so it didn't show as it should for the rest of us.

    I would hate to think that they just....forgot.

    It's a bit frightening either way.

    Oh well, we shall see how it goes.

    I wonder if there is anything else in the publish, specifically anything storyline-related, that hasn't been announced, or just the Bells and ships. (I count the ship as storyline-related because technically-speaking they have a place in the fiction: Dawn commissioned them to secure Britannian naval dominance. She didn't want to be outdone by the gargoyles and orcs and Tokunoese, I guess, and she did mention using them to eventually besiege Magincia. I recognize that, of course, the storyline is not the boats primary purpose)
