    Well I'm posting here because I've ran out of options.

    The Collector's Quest on Legends Shard has been broken since OCTOBER! Thomas O'Neerlan the Toymaker is gone from Trinsic tinker's guild. Both my sister and I have paged GMs. We got a canned message to send in a bug report. We sent bug reports in....IN OCTOBER! It's still broken.

    Then Friday night Sis and I were what we call "Death Mining". "Death Mining" is mining with a Gargoyle's Pickaxe near our Fel Castle. We got attacked by a Red. Okay no big thing I held him off while Sis's miner hauled pixels to the castle. Then I also hauled pixels to the castle. Sis switch chars to her Tamer, summoned G-Draggy and was gonna teach Mr. Red-Dude-With-Attitude some manners. I joined her. He attacked me first, sis target draggy on Red guy. Red Guy lures Draggy around till he sticks him on a private house. Then he PKs Sis, and I'm still beatin on this guy. He Pks me, too.

    I get rezzed by roaming Healer NPC, and go inside castle. Sis can not enter castle and I could not rez her. WHY? She's isn't faction or anything so I should have been able to rez her. I understand the flagging system may have something to do with her not being able to enter castle. It gets worse...
    After we got rezzed I stand in center of inside castle where I THOUGHT I was safe. Red dude chain casts 6-8 spells THROUGH THE WALLS and kills me and my mount. After sis is able to enter castle same thing happens to her.
    He kills us THREE times inside our on castle. He is even able to cast and hit sis up on top of castle. I got nail through walls in courtyard, sis got nailed through walls in parapet. I got nailed in downstairs hall through the walls.
    In the parapet and halls he used feilds our WHOLE hall and parapet was filled with fields. you couldn't escape them. This guy wouldn't leave. We paged a GM, got a canned message and no help so we gave up and logged out. I'm sorry but isn't casting THROUGH walls a CHEAT??? I do not use any cheats and i have NEVER been able to cast through a house wall.

    I wrote Mr. Draconi a private message last night hoping for some help. Apparently I do not merit a response as he's NEVER even read my private message.

    I'm sorry but EAMythic customer service is atrocious! In this economic climate ever customer should be treated as gold. I work as bookkeeper for a battery supply. My boss's policy is "The Customer is Always Right" and "A Happy Customer is a return sale and will bring more customers". Is EA so big and making so much money they can afford to **** off as many customers as they want? How do they expect to make money if they treat their customers like fecal material??? I don't understand. :( Sis and I are considering take our 51.96 a month somewhere else. 51.96 a month equals to 623.52 a year that apparently EA does seem to need.

    I'm hoping for some help here from a Dev team member otherwise come Monday our accounts are closed. Why do you have to practically fly to Virginia to get customer service?

    If you go today, be careful because there is a crimson dragon lurking in that general vicinity.

    *HUGS* Thank you so much Tina we been looking eveyday multiple times a day in the Trinsic Tinker's Guild. Thank you so much! Would have been nice if GMs could said look over here etc, etc. Thanks so much again. I wish EA would consider a vonluntary GM system using 8-11 vet players and allowing them telecommute. I'd definately recommend you Tina! :)

    Glad to help.

    Sorry I haven't got any good advice regarding the deaths at the castle. Six of my houses are in Fel and all but one are custom plots with double walls to make it more difficult for someone to cast fields or send nature's furies into the house. The one keep that I own (no castles) is in Fel on Origin and I placed it against my better judgment and only because there was so much space available and I wanted the experience of owning one. I fully expect some day someone will decide to demonstrate for me just how poorly constructed and insecure it is!

    Can I have your bosses name and phone number so that I can ask him/her to forward your contact information to customers so that when they have a problem then can call/email/IM you on your day off? You obviously noticed that this is Sunday since you said you were closing your accounts tomorrow (Monday) and expect Draconi to sit around on his day off watching the forum and checking his PM's instead of living his life and taking care of personal things.

    Heard this one from you several times in the past, so I am definitely calling bull****.

    you couldn't go back in the house cause you were flagged.
    Don't attack reds with a miner you will not win ha

    I have had people throw EV's into my castle there are a few spots they can throw them in. I would recommend placing something in those spots. I don't because I like to throw EVs over the wall to kill annoying sewer rats that never stop squeaking which those are the same spots you can throw down the EV's.

    I have not been killed by a red in my castle even on my mule charters I am able to avoid their attacks. But those attacks are very rare.

    You cry wolf with this more than anyone I have ever known in the history of all the MMOs I have ever played. Everyone knows you are not going to do this since you havent the 20 or 40 other times you threatened. You may as well just stop.

    I think you need some serious help from a medical professional. I say that with all seriousness and hope you do seek out some solid advice and guidance.

    Well Desperado, Mr. Draconi was online at the time I pmed him. If you will click on my name or your own name you will see a dot. stick your cursor on the dot if its green the message wil appear "This person is Online".
    If it is blue the message will appear "This person is offline."

    Mr. Draconi was online as Draconi_EA ere go he is working. If I have to go in on Saturday or Sunday to do some work on the books and a customer comes in I do not tell them to "Get lost its sat/sun, come back monday." I will sell them batteries, WD-40 or whatever it is in our stock they want.

    BTW, if you would stop and think there are some job that even when you are off the clock you are still at that job. Ever heard of Police Officers? Firefighters? Paramedics? Even off duty they often stil have to do their job.
    A off duty Policeman walks into a 7-11 and finds its been rob and the cashier shot. He doesn't go "Eh, I'm off duty it ain't my problem". He secures the premises and calls for a ambulance and back-up.

    A off duty paramedic encounters a traffic accident with injuries and no help on the scene he doesn't go "eh I'm off duty not my problem." He stops and renders aid and calls for help.

    The best analogy I have for this I read in the newspaper a off-duty airline pilot on a flight head home. The pilot became ill and unable to fly the plane. The plane either reqiured two people to land it (there are some commercial jets that do) or for some reason the co-pilot couldn't do it. Anyway the attendant asked if there was anyone with flight exipirence on board. The off duty pilot landed the plane safely. He didn't go "eh, I'm off duty not my problem."

    I think you need some more life expirence Mr. Desperado_SE before you make such statments as yours. I'm going to chalk it up as you must be under 21 otherwise sir you would know better.

    Uh, no Budwieser it goes back to the person that made a gift of it to me. I made a promise and I keep my word.

    For the record I have closed and reopen my accounts several times. What do you people want me to post copies of my credit card statements? Forget that!

    Fine let's all cancel our accounts, but the fact is THEY STILL WON'T FIX SQUATT! It will give EA a reason to shut down UO permanantly. So then where will we be smart guy????? No UO at all oooo...

    Hey I'm willing to go to jail if it get's the Devs and higher ups attention.

    Hell, I'd fly everyone out to Cali just so we could picket EA's corporate offices, but since I haven't won the...

    Who's had enough of the lag bs and being ignored by the EAMythic team?

    Who's had enough of crappy customer NO service?

    Who's fed up with the complete lack of in game support?

    If you...

    5.
    I was wondering the value cause I'm seriously considering quitting.

    6.
    Ain't gonna matter who don't or does advertise where, if they don't start enforcing the ROC/TOS. Doesn't matter what client you prefer if Griefing, cheating and scripting is left unchecked. Seriously, who wants to play a game where these things are constantly allowed? How much long longer will we continue to tolerate intorerable playing conditions?

    7.
    Great!! No wonder everyone's quitting! This game is head straight into the crapper. Click the image to open in full size. I wish they'd ASKED us BEFORE the nerfed the game? Oh, I'm sorry I forget we don't count for squatt we just PAY to play this mess.


    For the record....#2 quote scares me....

    For the record #2 was in reference to someone saying "you'll go to jail if you demostrate outside EA offices." If it brings about change then its worth it.

    I'm sooo glad you're too scared to fight for change, just remember when your grandchildren ask if you ever stood up for anything you can proudly say no I was too scared.

    Okay if your "friend" didn't make uneducated statments I wouldn't have to write such posts. Please don't let yourself be drug down with him and him lack of education. You seem to be better than that.

    Someone might want to advise Draconi then to talk with his boss and make sure he was getting paid for reading the boards on what was most likely one of his days off since obviously if a Dev is reading Stratics, then they must be working no matter the day or the time that they are shown as being on here. Unless you can actually prove that he was in the office late last night working, then your argument that he was working while reading the boards doesn't really hold water.

    Furthermore, I'm making a giant leap in assumption in believing that there is some possible way you can actually explain the connection between being a cop/fire fighter/paramedic who are all three in the business of saving someones life to being a game programmer. Someone killing you and your sister in game doesn't even compare to someone getting killed in RL so your examples are really poor. Your analogy skills are lacking, at best. And please get some conviction and fortitude if your going to continue make threats about closing your accounts if the Dev's don't rush in to help you every time you post on here. Close the accounts and walk away from UO for good. You'll finally make a lot of people much happier being around here.

    Lol...having to report to personal attacks because people are tired of your empty threats? And talking about my having a lack of education? You have heard of spell checkers, right?

    Oh gee so I'm stupid cause I misspelled a word??? Um, whatever. I have a college education. I guess you theink Steve Jobs and Bill Gates are idiots too because both have admitted to not being able to spell without spell checker, and they're only the CEOs of the two biggest computer based corporations on the PLANET!

    I have now read your private message - and would like to mention a few things.

    First, I'm very concerned with the problem you had in the castle; I believe it's a known issue, but cannot be resolved without a publish. I'm sorry that you've had a poor experience with customer service as well - I've been on that side myself, and it's never feels good to not get aid when you feel aid is warranted.

    Secondly, I want to reiterate to the community that while I keep my PM box on Stratics open, it is not a guaranteed method of contact. Per our guidelines, I do not privately communicate in PMs with the playerbase concerning UO. Communication from me about UO is written in public, visible places. I will have no choice but to close the PM box if its expected that I'll read and respond to each message; just because it's not possible, and it would be inappropriate to mislead the community.

    I'm committed to communicating with the community because I believe UO's community is what makes UO great, but it's unfortunate when my options dwindle.

    The UO Herald has a feedback form that sends emails directly to the community representative for UO. They process the emails and send them out to the proper members of the team who need to see the messages. Since this is an obvious bug, Mesanna would be one of the first to see it, along with the lead designers and customer service.

    P.S. Seriously, I can't stand the bugs with the castle courtyards, it's just the way they originally built the multis for them. I can't promise anything atm (we're already full up on work for Pub58, SA, etc), but it's at least on the list.

    My grade 7 English teacher was so displeased with my spelling she took my parents aside to tell them I would never accomplish anything in life.

    *ponders*

    ok ... I don't have good proof she was wrong yet.

    Well my sister's 1st grade math teacher said she didn't think my sister would ever be able to do any high level mathmatics. Well she's working on her B.S. E.E. I'm happy to say she's made As and Bs in Calculus I, Calculus II, Calculus III and Differential Equations so I think its safe to say that teachers can be wrong.

    As fore misspelling Bill Gates and Steve Jobs both have admitted to being lost without spell checker. Heck prolific writer Stephen King admits his first drafts are extremely rough because he doesn't concern himself with spelling and grammer until he's completed was he's doing at that moment. He then goes back and corrects the mistakes. I'm sure even President Elect Obama has misspelled a word or two in his time. ;)

    You should also apologize for the assumption you had that if he is browsing the boards on his day off he "has to" read his PMs and respond to them. People should be allowed to do whatever they want on their day off, just because he is doing something work related does not mean he should be doing what you would like him to do (in fact that is true even if he is working. Draconi is not part of the customer service team and it is not his job to look into your CS issues.)

    But I guess you're one of those people who will throw a fit until a dev responds and then you roll over for them, wagging your tail and panting. Congrats! you got a dev to respond to you, because he cares about the community and is a polite and classy guy. God only knows what he thinks of you privately though. I know what I think of you, it ain't flatterin'. ;)

    I got an answer for the OTHER question asked.


    It's the town invasions. The toymaker can be made Hatred, Cowardice or Falsehood, and run (away from something or chasing someone) very far from his original abode, and unlite the town NPCs, it appears that he doesn't have a "bounce back to start point" code for when he respawns (as he is supposed to be a stationary NPC under normal circumstances, and shouldn't have NEEDED it). This issue might be present for any of the normally immobile NPCs, if they were accidentally made vulnerable to the shadowlord change.

    He can theoretically be blocks from his original position (I saw one town NPC, a Naturalist, PAST SPIRITUALITY SHRINE by the river, on Lake Austin). Luckily, on my shard, he's just a block or so away.

    Excuse me Sarsami for not being a "UO Cheerleader" and falling down to worship the Dev Team. Gimme a break they're code jockeys aka programmers plain and simple. If they screw up I'm gonna let them hear about it. I PAY to play UO so WHY should I have to kiss Ascii code? I shouldn't!!! I pay for electrical service every month too I don't going kissin the electric co. butt and tell them how great they are when my damn power goes out. I have had over 100 outages in 17 yrs of living in this house. I live in my previous house in Texas 13 yrs and only had 5 outages.

    Futhermore I did apologize to the man I said I was sorry. I admit when I am wrong! If you'll read my post history I try VERY hard to admit when I'm wrong.

    However if he logs in as Draconi_EA then he's acting in his official capacity. If I'm sitting at my desk at work on the weekend in jeans and a t-shirt entering payables or receivables then I'm doing my job. Even though its the weekend and I'm wearing weekend clothes Guess what I'm still acting as the bookkeeper. I'm sure it would be no trouble for Stratics to give him a nonofficial accout. But if he's surfing the Boards and posting "wearing" his "Dev Hat" then its natural to assume he's on here in his offical capacity.

    Bottomline I apologized and Draconi accepted case CLOSED!!!!

    As for the CS team I tried in vain repeately to contact them. I paged a GM. I called the useless 1-866-543-5435 number (god only knows why because it is USELESS). I do not bother with the email anymore because it too is worthless I have sent emails in the past and got ZERO response. I guess in your cheerleader mentality I should have just gave up. HELLO!?!? I pay for UO so shouldn't I be entitled to some customer service? I guess you'll understand what its like to pay for something with your own money when Mommie and Daddy stops paying for your UO.

    I could careless what you think of me. I'm a *****, I know it, hell I admit it. As for what Draconi thinks of me; well that's his business now ain't it? If he ever wants to tell me then it'll be OUR business and none of your affaire. The people on Legends that know me will tell you I'm as good a person as you'd want to meet and as loyal as a retreiver, but "step on my tail" and I will growl and bare my teeth.

    I'm tired of this :bdh: so this subject is CLOSED.



    Who me? Nah too cold, not a polar bear.

    Really? You get to have your say, so then the subject is closed? Heh, if only forums worked that way.

    At any rate you didn't read my post very closely to understand what I was saying. I don't particularly care about that, I don't think you are the kind to go back and re-read. I'll say something in a similar vein though: it is outside the scope of draconi's job to fix your customer service related issues. For example, if you went to wendy's and approached the janitor and asked them for a burger they would not be able to help you, because it isn't their job. Every minute you waste of draconi's time with him having to politely tell you that he has forwarded your issue and has to explain that he cannot respond to PMs is a minute less where he is doing something that is actually useful for the rest of us.

    So go through the proper channels, which are calling the Mythic CS people, bug reporting the issues you find, and paging a GM for ingame issues. Those are the routes you need to take, not PMing a dev like they are your personal UO servant to fix any and all problems that you have. If everyone who had a problem is trying to message a dev about it, and are demanding dev attention they would never have any time to do anything else like, oh, add new content to the game or work on fixing bugs that have been reported.

    Capiche?

    I'd buy that Red a cigar.

    Excuse me but...WHAT THE HELL ARE YOU SMOKING???? I never said I was casting anything fyi go check UO char search and see for yourself my char is a Paladin Swordswoman. My sis's Char Luc of Legends is a Tamer-Mage-Spellweaver....but she's a sorry mage and relies on that G-draggy. Another poster made reference to the EVs not I. So please put down the bong BEFORE you post anymore halucinations.

    First, Maplestone...please let me say...I am stalking you on the forums. You will just have to learn to live with it. :eek:

    Now on to the serious stuff.

    Albert Einstein's mother was asked to remove him from grammar school, by his teacher.

    The teacher felt that Einstein was "Addled in the brain", because he would gaze out the window, not answer questions the way the teacher wanted them answered, and asked far too many questions himself. The teacher recommended institutionalization for him.

    He finished school, at home, with his parents.

    He did OK for himself.

    There is still hope for you and Jirel, I am thinking. :)

    You would be proud to tell your grandkids you stood up for .....um....what?

    Please..this is borderline strawman tactics. You are trying to equate somehow through some demented part of your mind that standing up for good customer service is like standing up for civil rights or human rights or something?

    Not...even...close.

    No one here is scared to ask for better customer service. Tired of saying the same thing year after year after year mayve. Scared? lol

    Seriously? You have no idea who I am. I simply posted all of your crying and worthless threats. When I receive bad service somewhere I DO let them know and never return or give them another chance. It seems you whine and cry DRAMA on a web chat forum. I'm tired of the BS we get when playing UO also. But I pay to play. I role with the punches, I make posts about changes, give my views on game play, play test and submit bugs, I even have PM Dev's my points in the past, but I never posts threats like a child of quiting over and over to try and prove my point, whine and complain about silly things. It's a GAME. You act like it's your life. Open the window, let your cats out, put the cig down, toss the troll dolls collecting dust along the top of your monitor and go outside. I Bet EA see's you coming a mile away and prolly every GM knows your char name's by now. I might transfer a char to your shard just to say hi to your char everyday ;)

    What's the point in threatening to close your accounts in protest, if you're just going to reopen them again, down the line?
    You have the cheek to call people cowards, because you assume they're not fighting for change. But you, yourself, fail epically at your own protests.
    If you want to use non-subscription as a protest, then stop subscribing. Go play a competing MMO, or something that'll make your point better than a brief period of rage-quit, followed by scurrying back at the end of it to give more money to the people that made you to throw your toys out of the pram to begin with.

    Anyway, whatever happened to your boycot of Stratics?

    If you've ever seen Draconi's PvP weapon, you'd never want to fight him.

    We saw it at the 2007 Columbus Town Hall

    A butcher Knife, with EVERY weapon Modifier in the game, at 100% intensity.... and he PKs while in God Mode (at least on Test Center).

    I reopened my account after the issues at that time were resolved LIKE MANY OTHER BOARD members. As for the boycott, I did post this on another forum and talked to several people in AIM from my shard. I was advised that the only way that this would ever be seen was to post it here because the Devs only read and post here.

    Isn't it nice to know that UO Stratics has a choke hold on UO.


    BTW to everyone that thinks otherwise, we went throught the proper channels if you'd bothered to READ the original post. We each sent bugs reports on the missing NPC in OCTOBER. We were told by other players if you send more than one bug report about the samething from the same email address it will be IGNORED! As for emailing customer service my experience is they do not anwser the emails so I don't waste the time to write them.

    As for the attacking through the Castle we both paged a GM and it took 2 hrs to get a canned response, fat lot of good that does when your "Toons" are trapped inside castle. Let me recap FIRST Sis couldn't enter the castle then when she could she was pked through the walls as was I. I used the "Help I'm stuck" to go to cove and rezzed. Sis could NOT use hers at all. When she click on help nothing happened. I returned and tried to rez her. I kept getting "you can't perform benefical acts on this characters." She is NOT factions, our guids are not warring, and neither chars are red. During all of this the bozo is circling our castle!! He PK me a second time through wall while standing in the CENTER of castle. I snuck out to a near by roaming healer. I got back to the castle and was in the bottom hallway trying to get my mount out of the 1001 fire, poison, paralyze, and energy fields he was castle all thorugh our walls into the halls. I was killed when 1st I got poisoned by one of the fields and then he cast Energy bolt through walls at me. He then pked sis first on the castle wall and then on the Castle roof. I guess ya'll call this acceptable game play, I don't.

    After reading the WHOLE thread...please allow me to interject this small pearl:

    In all of the responses, not one single person said you should just take less than optimal game play, live with it, do not complain, page, ask for help, go through proper channels, etc... Not one person.

    What pretty much EVERY person is telling you is this...ready?

    Here you go:

    It isn't WHAT you say, it's HOW you SAY it.

    Yeah. That's what they...we are all telling you.

    We understand it sucked. So does EA. It sucked.

    However, you throwing yourself on the ground (Again), and holding your breath (Again) until you pass out (Again)...and then telling everyone that you are running away...again...for real this time...no lie (Again)...I'll take my $51.96 or whatever per month and just GO (Again)!!! Just like I have like...8 times before...but THIS time it is REALLY going to hurt (No Really...It Will)!!!!

    Just is getting excessively old, and tiresome to all of us. It really is.

    It reminds me of Judy Grimes a bit, from SNL...

    "Just Kidding...Just Kidding...Just Kidding...: :hahaha:

    That's it in a great big Surgeries sized nutshell. Just for you.

    :scholar:
