    No and not anyone from my guild did.



    What i think they they should have done is for one time only allow you to take a second house on your account. But the second house would be only be allowed to be placed in New Magincia. If they would have done that i would have trowed in a lot of gold to get my hands on that second house.

    There is also an old poll on it here but I'm not sure how accurately it represents the real percentages.

    I put gold on every spot limited and unlimited in hopes of aguiring one or more spots to sell not to place a house since it would have condemed my newly aguired castle. I am not going to trade my castle for a 15X15 plot.

    Never bought one ticket & I have 5 accounts (6 including my sons). My outlook was, why downsize in housing.. Now if they would of made them capable (as They SHOULD OF) of holding as much as a Keep at minimal, I probably would of bought some. But sure as heck wasn't going to downsize!

    No--I saw no purpose. All of my houses are either 18 by 18 or larger and in low spawn locations, some thing that took over 9 years of game play to achieve. I saw no reason to give up a larger house for a smaller one and spend excess gold for the privilege. All of characters have low reg suits, and can recall where they like. My fisher owns a waterfront home. There is nothing special, in my mind, about Magincia. Right now, it is not even pretty. Now if I had been on an overcrowded shard in a terrible locations, that might have altered the circumstances.

    Yes, I bought a few tickets and answered the polled accordingly.

    Some of you may have figured out the real value of this poll, and some, probably not. But in any case, the more that answer the better. ;)

    I didn't buy any. When the lottery was in process, I had just recently started playing on Siege and had no gold there to waste and no interest in acquiring a house on another shard, even for speculative purposes.

    Although New Magincia on Siege is turning into a good place to shop, you can still find well-stocked vendors elsewhere and they also don't limit PK and thief opportunities by being inside a guard zone. (In other words, you get a free adrenaline rush just going shopping! "Should I buy those undeeded imbuing materials or not? Hmmm.....")

    I bet if we poll <100 hardcores on Stratics that will be a totally meaningful statistic.

    Plus three plots in Trammel...

    (the E3 Felucca is yours to decorate and make it a pirate hideout)

    Cya soon!

    I spent zero. So we balance one another out.

    I bought one ticket to each trammel spot with one account. I did not buy any tickets on my other 10 accounts. I think that tips the scales further.

    I did not answer the poll above since there is no option for 1 of 11.

    We, the team that got the plots, donated most of them to our guild... so it would be a Guild project.

    Now they are guildmate owned... previously we, the team that worked hard to get all plots, got 17... beach house included.

    ...

    Nope, both of my accounts have houses, the primary actually has one on LS and one on Chessie so I can't do anything there if I wanted to, the secondary holds my cabin which has been my "UO Home" since mid-sized housing opened in Trammel in 2000, so I have really no intention of moving from there.

    Thus playing the lotto for a Magincia plot I couldn't use wasn't worth the effort for me.

    I may not have a house in New Magencia. I can have a vendor that buys and sells there though.

    I think I spent a total of 4 mil...? I bought on two plots that were unlimited and I won them both, one in tram and one in Fel. Both dedicated to gardening etc and open to public.
    Thinking of selling the Fel one....right like that'd work on LA.

    Spent zero and got one anyways. My accounts weren't active when the lottery happened. I guess I resubbed in time for when the plots that didn't get built on went public. Found a Tram one unoccupied and placed.

    51 / 36 (41.38%) from this current thread

    and

    123 / 94~ (43%~) from the UO Guide poll

    So far they seem like they are both around the same findings of a 58 to 42 split ... so I guess that could mean there are, say, somewhere around 16,500 accounts in UO (if the results stayed at the same ratio). But a sample size of less than 250 is going to be a lot less accurate than a sample size of 9,000+.

    true 2 small sample sizes but we are a small community in all fairness...a poll does act as an indicator...and obvoulsy the higher the number in the poll the more accurate they are.....these two polls are showing 40% bought tickets.
