    Sucks that the shard with the highest population is the least reliable these days...

    Lag? Everyone keeps talking about lag and spikes lately, i play from the UK and i have no lag no lag spikes at all on Atl. Atl is even less laggy for me than europa is. Europa is ment to be close were Atlantic is across the well.. Atlantic :D

    I did honestly recognize more lag on Atlantic the last days too since i moved a char there and placed a house...
    But i also have this lag on Pacific my main shard i spend 85% of my time...
    No lag on Europa if i rarely log on there for a 30 mins hunt...
    I play from Central Europe so the lag on the US shards wouldnt surprise me - but it is more lag on both shards i am used to have - started around Atlantic's revert...

    Is any of the UO staff on Twitter? I just wonder if they even know that Atlantic is down.

    It would be nice if when a shard crashes that there would be some word within 1/2 hour on UO.com at least acknowledging that they know something is amiss.

    When a shard is down this long, the question isn't will there be a revert but how long a revert will it be.

    Getting to be quite habitual in nature as of late. I hope this maintenance resolves issues and doesn't create any new ones.

    That's it, next time they spill coffee on a machine somebody needs to be stuck outside Fel Yew gate with no weapon and force to wear a sign that says PK's are Stewpid.. and if they die, the person who killed them gets their job for a week. Meow.

    (Want to add, I do not think pk'ers are stewpid before this blows up into some controversy XD)

    You would think that the developers would keep one shard maintained that is actually populated. This game has really deteriorated.

    I haven't played UO in a couple months, and usually every few months i'll pop in and see if it'll draw me back, but I've not gotten any of those withdrawal feelings this time.. and not looking like I'll be too happy if i do come back. Seeing that UO is giving free time away for their last revert wasn't looking like a good thing because a massive chunk of people that play play alot on Atlantic (my shard of choice) and if they are planning on giving more free time away not looking like a good way to start the year. EA needs to stop thinking UO needs to be on life support, and treat it like a serious franchise. The Ultima Games are legendary, they set some of the most early blocks in the foundation of what role-playing video games should be, and they almost always carried a deeper meaning and reason.. They were designed for personal reflection, they provided a deep enriching experience if you cared to try to follow the path of the avatar and they were just nuts! Talking mice, Lord British liking Alice in Wonderland, Tie fighter space battles in the first one, snake people, lizard men Dragons, Minax being in love with Mondain's funky booty (Yicky). EA executive.. if you stepped into the light of the avatar, you would be melted away in it's glory.. in it's virtue.. in it's mercy. You have a long arduous path to achieve enlightenment and you can start by giving the UO team the stuff it needs to upgrade it's servers, graphics, and a proper art department and Q&A team. Stop letting this classic piece of gaming history become a sullied and tarnished piece of trash we can't tolerate any more. And furthermore, cinnamon rolls. Thank you.

    I don't know what bothers me more. Atlantic crashing and being down for over an hour or Atlantic being down for over an hour and EA not even bothering to post that they know the shard is down and they are working n it.

    It's back - any revert appears very minor. I'm where I was when it went down.

    Sh1t happens why blame anyone???? We'v got to used to in life expecting everything and moaning, GEEEE everyone here needs to pop an E...... Life is life, Take 1 minute to think hard right now for all the Billions of children people out there in the world cold/hungry/dieing/improvished that dont have a house a bed a warm place to sleep in the middle of winter.... And your crying about your $10 you pay to play a game in your warm cosy house after dinner...............

    Really people wake UP think, i dare you think hard while you cant play about those people...... Do they moan? no. why? why? ask your selfs and think really hard about it.

    This: "aye :) i just xfered a ton of gold to another shard ;)"

    I am sure you are using that gold to feed and house the poor.

    That's a rather humanitarian way of thinking, and if this were a just happened this one time only recently and for a few minutes kinda thing pretty sure this thread wouldn't have popped up. And I'm not crying, far as I can tell nobody here is crying, we're a little agitated and after rereading every post in the thread yours seems to be the most inflammatory one. Umadbro?

    Your all "agitated" because you cant play your game........... think about the people who dont have a game, there game is there life. Lil less harsh on the devs and while you couldnt play what did you all do?? mash your key board in frustration. I said while you cant play take a sec out to think about others that dont have a game apart from the game of life. Its just been xmas, i didnt see one single post from anyone about anyone else than them selves.

    I don't even play this game. I'm sure you'll have something to say about that. But no, continue farming your gold and selling it, and donating 50% of it to those red cross people. There's nothing wrong with that. :D

    Nah, could not care less about them in all honesty. I only think/worry about me, my family, our friends and what confronts that group specifically. This whole "let's think about others all the time, and those less fortunate" movement needs to go away... Can't wait for it to pass. Those "less fortunate" need to get off their bums and be a little more fortunate, THAT would alleviate the problem entirely.

    I used to like when Origin still ran things that they had a page on the UO Site called something like Shard Issues. Usually within 5-10 minutes, they would post is a Shard was Down or having issues and about how long it would be offline. Then they would post when it was back up so you didn't have to keep logging in and out hoping that your Shard would finally show back up. And it was great to know someone was watching things and that not everyone had gone home for the day.
