    I believe that answer is 1.

    Thank you guys for actually giving us some great content year after year as long as we went to normal school from the 1st to 12th grades.

    I still have the first item I got (some oil for a lamp). I mean wow, I know its virtual, but its been 12 freaking years, and it would still work. I still live in a keep I bought 12 years ago. I've been there so long the floors feel solid to me when I walk on them.

    Let's give the dev team some love for still being here.

    You guys rock!!! :danceb:

    Not sure what you mean. Folks who have been gone a year have a lot to catch up on.

    If you are referring to expansions, yes, it kinda stopped between ML and SA.

    But content isn't just expansions. Destruction of Magincia, Rebuilding Magincia, Legacy Dungeon arties, Book of Truth, Candle of Love, Mooglow invasion, Dread warhorses etc are all content.

    Then there's Gardening enhancements, Runic enhancements, BOD enhancements, Doom enhancements etc

    You are right it is an online game but nothing like UO. 1st it is a MUD and 2nd it is turn based.

    I still curse them. UO started as a world, now it's just a game. Events are scripted "take me to the shinies" events with poor implementation that hasn't evolved at all.

    UO could be much more than it is, and that is the shame.

    But I don't blame the developers or EA alone. Lots of blame goes to the players. Selfish to an extreme. It is they who won't allow UO or any other MMO to surpass the "it's only a game" phase. It is they who won't accept more than gamey "give me" content.

    And yeah, by those players, I guess I mean you players, with rare exceptions. But I'm OK with that, I'm by far in the minority. Just sayin'.

    Yup, GJ and TY to The powers that be.

    What other game could survive the years with so little thrown at it? NONE.

    Even when there was no additions for awhile peaple still played it. Complaining the whole time,but they still logged in. Could anyone see WoW staying plugged in w/o any xpacs for 4 years? DAoC?,WaR? Etc,etc.Any of those eye candy shallow depth games would be dead as a door nail in short order.I`m suprised other companies haven`t figured it out yet. A great game need more than just pixel crack.Anyone can make a game that relies on the need to add new stuff to keep your attention. Those kind of games are everywhere.

    Theres something grand about UO that has been proving doomsayers wrong for 10+ years.

    In the words of Limp Bizkit "Keep on rollin baby" :party:

    I really dont complain about much on the game..
    I congratulate the Dev team for being so l33t

    the only bad thing i saw with SA was not being able to make it available in places outside of North America/US
