Conspiracy theory (admittedly with many many holes in it)!

    Theory is that jeremy and the current dev team have been sent to close uo down.
    why they would do this instead of just closing it is a big hole but hey at least i get to put brocolli here

    Like Swiss Cheese...seriously though, we seem to be plagued
    with these theories and "OMG UO is closing down" over the last
    10 years.:next:

    But, here we are, still going at it. And hopefully for 10 more years.:thumbsup:

    hiya, is there evidence they got 10 genuine cheaters? i would love to hear that but of course without names.
    if it was 10 then i would feel a little better at ea sacrificing mine for getting them
     
  6. UO has a lot of life in it , how much support and expansion it gets is another thing , hopefully they will prove us wrong...

    Why would they close it in such a way rather than just turning off the servers? Why close something in a slow way with methods that alienate customers rather than a pulling the plug if they really wanted to end it? Makes very little sense.

    Next conspiracy theory: Blackthorne still alive, living as an Elvis impersonator in Vesper.

    There is no consipiracy theory!!!!!!!!! You are still bitter and trying to make trouble for getting caught doing something extremely wrong.

    Now I do belive you when you say you are inncoent,I think you are soo Naive that you really don't know what you did wrong.I am saddend that neither you nor the other 140 account holders that were banned will come to terms and realize what you had done is wrong.

    Another thing that saddens me and make me angry is the fact the devs allowed you and others to keep the other accounts you all owned DESPITE the FACT you got caught.I only hope those accounts get banned after the DEVS link those accounts to previously banned owners.THERE IS NO ROOM IN UO FOR CHEATERS,EXPLOITERS OR PEOPLE WHO KNOWINGLY CO-OPERATE WITH SAID CHEATERS.

    This is not a personal attack on you.It is meant as anyone who has been banned should not ever be allowed to play uo again.to many pvp'ers out there that have had at least one account banned for cheating and exploiting but still play and cheat and exploit.

    I'm still waiting for evidence there was even ONE innocent person. Knowingly buying & collecting duped rares (even for display) is just as against the rules as duping 20 valorite hammers a week.

    :sad3: Does that include me for bringing ostards out of T2A when it first opened?
    But seriously I agree.

    If they had taken the hard stance against cheating from day 1, the game never would have got the reputation it has. Hundreds who have quit in frustration over the dupes or scripters would still be here. The negative reputation would not have kept hundreds or thousands more from ever joining in the first place.
    And all of that additional revenue could have meant further improvement to the game.

    I suspect there aren't any.

    The simple fact is EA is all about the $. And every banned account means lost money - whther it was banned for a real reason or not.
    So there is no reason for them to ban without cause.. it is bad business.

    I'm not saying they cannot make a mistake, but given the fact that the bannings were based on ownership of large quantities of duped items, I don't see much potential for error.

    silly things like bringing an ostard out of t2a is funny and acceptable type of "cheating" because noby got harmed and the economy didn't take a hit either.But things like duping val hammers or using the tree stump hack in pvp is NOT acceptable.


    I agree with you about there not being any inncoents banned becasue liek you said it is all about the $.Now take what jeremy said about 140-150 accounts that were banned and at $13 per acount that is $1,950 per month and $23,400 per year as a rough estimate and in tihgt times that can mean someone either loosing their job complately or have their hours cut back drastically whcih means the remaing workers have to work harder just to break even so Yeah,they do take bannings seriously and I trust the devs to do the right thing.

    Plu if soemone had saved up 40 val hammers they should be banned for the simple fact of not burning them and letting a perfectly good hamer go to waste as a lock down.

    I am not and was not trying to be mean in my post I am Just like basara in that I am and very pasionate UO player and I care about this game I love.My relationship with UO has outlasted reationships with 3 girlfriends,1 dog and 15 goldfish.:(

    I think thats fairly correct , and you can still buy cheap val and verite hammers an mass , so all in all its great victory for EA

    That is a hell of a lot more believable than all these "I am innocent" posts.

    ok one guy sold me a fletcher heartwood runic kit 3 times already and each time he sells it off his vendor there is another there the next day. These things a re a once a year get already how the hell did he pull 4. my guess was they were dupes. O and in a opular magazine either this month or last there was an article about UO making a combact in numbers from people dropping WoW and Newbs jumping into UO's 2D to get an MMO experience and staying once they realize the fun. Again UO is owned by EA. Im sure they make more money a year off of UO that there NHL 08 or some other crappy game they produce every year so why would they shut it down. On top of that the dont have to spend money on advertiseing on making disk and boxing of product shipping. To me UO brings more of a profit to EA than some of the games they currently make.
