    After the Great Atlantic Revert, Mesanna came to Atlantic and showed us a Jolly Roger Flag which would be given to everyone who suffered due to this great event. We were told it was going to be sent back to the artist to make it a bit neater, and......well, I guess it got lost in the void.

    Ahh, ok. I definitely remember the revert and got caught up in the crappy end of the pool on it but never heard about the flag. Cool. Maybe the post will jog her memory on it and get it rolled out.

    Sad thing is all or most of UO suffered from that revert so I guess everyone should get it.

    I would settle for a bottle of Rum.

    Which I would quickly trade for a few cases of Good Old Moonglow Red!

    The devs decided no one needed the flag after they fixed all the bugs in 1 publish.

    I asked Mesanna about this issue in August and she told me she was not happy with the original artwork and they were re-doing it.
    But she did promise that we would indeed be getting one. It would most likely be available via a Clicky-type Object and would be available for a 24 hour period.
    So I hope we do get some advance notice when that does happen.

    It would be nice to get some kind of update. I mean, unless showing everyone on the shard the flag was just a big tease

    A Jolly Roger should be a Veteran Reward or a drop from from what's the name of that sea monster that is as hard as Scalis yet no one fights because it drops nothing?

    A Jolly Roger House Flag or a Jolly Roger Ship flag would make some nice additions to the game.

    Someone's been rooting in last years trash can! Maybe they put up the 24 hour clicky and nobody showed up?

    *Looks up from his seat by the fire*

    "While this would be cool, frankly I appreciate all the work that has been put in over the last year.

    I am also happy to let this go. There are more important things on the horizon.

    I agree there are more important things for them to do, I just don't understand why they never gave them to us when it was already created and 100% done with. I was there the day Mesanna put one on top of the Atlantic Moonglow building, it looked great, there was really no reason they couldn't have just locked one down and made it a clicky item.

    Someone would have seen it hehe, there were lots of people tracking it's progress for months. Some are still tracking it apparently, since the thread got ressurected.

    Well if they said they would do it, they should do it. They decide what they want to do in these situations and once they promise the players something it should happen. I'm sure they have someone capable of pulling off a pirate flag. At least I would hope they would.

    Exactly, that doesn't look bad at all. I like it. Maybe you should design a flag for Broadsword and email it too them, lol. The creativity the players have in this game is really something. A tribute to the players and the game. Closest thing I've come to doing something like that is making my own toilet, lol.

    Couldn't agree more. Even though I would love one of these flags, I THOROUGHLY appreciate the effort and the dedication the dev team has put into the game.

    - Faster response from GM's
    - Advisers
    - VvV
    - Broadsword

    etc
    etc
    etc
    etc


    If it keeps progressing like it has been, I couldn't care less if i got a flag or not. :)

    almost like they dont think things completely through. Or maybe they do and it was just all about people coming back to UO.

    I didn't bother asking her when I saw her this summer. I just figure if we didn't receive it by now, we most likely won't be seeing it at all.

    Clearly we can add the flag to the pile of "we almost got them" items that have never been given out over the years.

    I am extremely disappointed and disheartened at UO right now. It's been going on for years and slowly building. It led to me cancelling one of my 5 accounts last year.

    I revived this post because of the recent issue with the timers. The developers changed the decay timers without saying anything about it. It directly caused me to lose my boat and the hundreds of hours it took to collect all the fish/crabs/lobster for the quest. Then add on to that losing the reputation because you have to quit the quest. Disheartening doesn't seem like a strong enough word.

    The response I got was pretty predictable. 'I cannot track your ship, so there is nothing I can do....'.

    So, you make an unannounced changed, cause me to loose hundreds (I'd say at least 1200 hours, considering it was both my wife and I doing it together) of hours and there is nothing you can do? Not willing to put in the effort to go back and find it? It's like them making houses decay again with an accelerated timer without telling anyone they did it and people who don't log in for 3 days lose their houses.

    It reminded me of this... where they had an issue and we had to revert weeks. One of the promises made was the flag. Another broken promise. (no, I am not saying anyone promised anything regarding my ship and lost contents, I am referring to other broken promises across the years).

    It's like they really don't care, they know that people will keep paying regardless of what is done. I used to play UO anywhere from 30 to 60+ hours a week.... for years. Now, I haven't played UO much at all. Maybe 20 hours since this happened. And I haven't even logged on the account that the boat was on. I just cannot do it.

    Normally, I am a person who just moves on from things. But, at some point as the pain and broken promises and lack of fulfillment add up... at some point you just have to walk away. While, today isn't that day for me... it is a lot closer than I ever thought it would have been.

    I would be happy if they fixed the ninja Cu-form healing that have been broken for years or made the metal gargoyle amulets reforgeable or put more then 10 charges on runic mallets.

    It would be great if someone spent 1 day cleaning up the landscape to.....removing all the hundreds of stretched hides, lanterns, statues, and other bits of broken crap that have gotten stuck over the years. They could at least try to have the Advisors do it.

    on Baja in Fel we have tons of dead spots you cant even run through, I have told mesanna as well as paged GMs and the only response I have ever gotten is "Fel is not exactly the same as Tram". To this I say, I would agree but not to run through open areas is a bit much.

    Why the sad face? Thwarted your plans to make millions from selling it off shard? Good. That wasn't the idea.
