    WTF.

    You have the west bridge in depsise just fine. it works. You can teleport, target people, it's a normal tile. When you fix west bridge, you completely **** up the east bridge.

    I don't get it, but you continue to confuse me.

    I've paid to play your game for so long, but tonight I scout despice and you managed to completely screw the bridge up. So I switch shards to check the next one. And this one is even more ****ed up than the last one.

    I get stuck on a tile, killed by oranges. I page for help. This is the response.

    Why don't you fix your **** and I wont have to use profanity?

    long story short, fix the bridges, its not that hard.

    Just another reason people are quitting the game, and we all know this thread will be censored by UO Stratics just like mine have been regarding UOAM. Censorship has always been a problem with UO for 10+ years and will always be a problem.

    I love how he gives insulting message "Thanks for playing Ultima Online and happy hunting!" after giving you a direct threat. That GM should be fired.

    EA should be ashamed, to say the least.

    You mean you had to use profanity? Wow...

    Lol... using profanity with the GMs is never helpful.

    Considering the fact that the GMs most likely have nothing to do with the devs...

    Also, UOAM hasn't been updated in 4 years. The EC incoorporates a lot of what UOAM has. Is it EAs fault that you refuse to give the EC a chance?

    Maybe if more people did, they would add guild tracking to the EC. . .

    I always find that a rude, or nasty letter never gets you very far. I have asked for help 2 times in the last month or so. Both times GM's came out and helped me.

    I think they are doing a much better job lately.

  6. I sent a pretty nasty messege too, but didnt get the response you did Lynk, the GM just showed up and removed me from under the tiles.. regardless, a fix is needed.. the least they could've done is posted saying there was something about them being messed up till the publish goes live for everyone. A lil warning???
    Didnt mean to start a new thread, I just dont always read the threads before I post.

    I had a thread on this earlier today. But in UO stratics fashion, it was deleted.

    This sort of thing needs to be release with a publish to all shards so this sort of thing doesnt happen

    lol There's actually two stuck spots there. I got stuck twice. I have no earthly idea what they were thinking. What's funny is the first time I got stuck I got out because I waited till the spawn was done and had someone come res me and bring me a teleport scroll. I got the response from the "help im stuck" page (apparently you cant use help stuck in dungeons anymore) and the GM tells me that it's obvious I am not stuck and to not page anymore....
    Thing is I canceled the page when I got "unstuck" before the GM "Arrived". It's not my fault the system is buggy and they didn't get the canceled page.

    Well yeah, we don't need multiple threads saying basically the same thing on the same board.

    Not to interrupt everyone's rant, but I don't suppose you've tested against TC1?
     
  12. FYI

    Use this next time:

    I am very angry and upset. The bridge is not working and I was killed. I need help. This is an issue that needs to be addressed. I find it frustrating.



    You can do it. Use your words. Youll get better results.

    Regarding getting help and getting censored (in UO, on stratics, in any other game or forum), what Raven said.

    Most of the times, using profanities do not get you anywhere. In fact, half the times, you get treated worse. Like the GM response in the OP.

    Try it with a waiter, and you'd better not eat what he serves you next :D

    I know you are pissed as hell, but when you are requesting for something and don't want to be brushed off, refrain from being obtrusive. Short concise sentences that convey that you mean business works best.

    Man, under your name it says UO content editor, and right off the bat, you do the kiddie tough guy thing by stating, "wtf"................I can't even read the rest of your rant, due to the behavioral level displayed.

    Growing up and acting like a mature person helps too.

    Test Center Despise bridges work like, well, how they are supposed to.

    No stuck spots, bridges still there. Can field both sides perfectly. No idea why they cant implement those bridges onto prodo shards. But I really don't like how they did Despise now... I miss the bridges.

    This one seems to be because we have half of the programming - the patch - but not the publish. From the results on test center, I think we'll be fine once published to the production shards.

    Getting Devs that have their **** together helps a lot more.


    Quick! Someone find a mod to sweep this under the carpet before people realize how ****ty this game really is and quit!

    im hoping what they did to the west bridge on tc1 is what they can do for the east bridge, they just made it a land bridge instead of tiles. of course they could get on the ball and fix all bridges, most bridges i come across that havent been around since beta seem to have the same targeting issues, like the bridge to medusas alter in abyss.
