    Have you ever read a FoF before? Seems to me you are expecting far far more than I have ever seen one provide.

    I'm hoping FoF will be really good too, but I'm trying not to get my hopes up. I find that when I get my hopes up, I set unrealistic expectations on the dev team and that just makes me grumpy. I like being happy, so I'll just hope it's interesting and see what happens :D

    Something to see the progress.

    As for the event, minus the ease of 25k tickets, its been great. I like the strangers just stopped with little warning. I think more of that should happen in the UO world. Things need to come and go.

    Will also be nice to know how many accounts were banned. The banning is the biggest event over the last 6 months since the burning of the luna houses and the response (could be more timely) to one of the biggest player's concerns - exploits/cheats in UO. I think the topic deserves more detailed info from dev.

    I will also send this request through the feed back form on uo.com.

    Hmm you need to define what is considered a question. If you count each bolded sentence then I'm out. If you count actual previously unanswered questions, I'll put $20 on 1 question... lol

    I don't feel so enthusiastic about anything any more

    They went and banned a bunch of people and wouldn't tell them why in a meaningful way.

    For me, that sorta overshadows whatever else they might say or do atm.

    Fridays FOF

    1. Whats the damage output of magic arrow? Jeremy- Well you see magic arrow takes sdi x 3.411/18.9 and that totals the proper damage.

    2. How many secures will a chest hold? Jeremy- That would be 125

    3. Stygan Abyss- Jeremy- What?

    4. Jeremy-This isn't quite FOF have a good weekend.

    Next town hall meeting is in hawaii where I will be consuming lots of beverages and discussing no important details of ultima online.

    I am SO EXCITED :sleep2:

    They dont burn anymore.
    They do just delete them. So there is no way back.
    They dont do ban/delete by fault.
    They are 100% sure in what they do.

    The FoF's have slid down to near oblivion. Jeremy just doesn't get how important they used to be to the UO community. The only real information we get anymore is when they announce Pub updates for TC.

    Wow.... Well I guess if you're going to dream, then dream big!.... As for me I'm sure hopeful that they will say something of some significance worth more than a yawn. But I highly doubt it. Given that even the boards consist of 90% posts about bannings, the profession on innocence and complaints of folk NOT getting banned when others think they should, I am beginning to wonder why I read the boards anymore.

    Used to be I would read them so I could assist folk with questions about the game. Or I would read them to find out something new about the game that I didn't know, some fantastic new discovery, such as the making of an origami fish, or that blaze colored liquor fire bomb... However posts of that nature are fewer and fewer and harder to find...

    Sometimes ask myself why I still bother coming here.

    I must be getting old ... I remember a time that doesn't seem that long ago where there was no FoF at all. FoF has always been for clarification or broadcasting things said on forums. I don't remember FoF ever being news ... it's just that since new chapters of live events used to start on Fridays, it tended to coincide with news.

    Actually, it would be nice to be able to easily do a search on the previous FOF, instead of going through them one by one. The info in them are quite valuable.

    Question 1. What about SA?

    Jeremy. Soon. We do have 10 new seeds in QA atm. Although they are swamped, I've looked over several dev's shoulders. It appears the code is crossed backwards and in horizontal axis resulting in every monster dropping 14 crimsons and a wheelbarrow for the gold checks which grow in place of resources on the new seed. We hope to put this out on TC with next publish for you to work on.

    Question 2.... We've updated the following pages on UO.
    Forensic evaluation, tracking and camping.

    We are all still rather worn out and hung over from our SD town hall. Plus we are having a really hard week here at EA/Mythic. Our coffee machine broke and we've been without caffeine for 3 days now, so we are heading to TGI Fridays to get plastered.. Wish all you bastages a great weekend!

    Your not getting old. They have always been crap and it's a rare occasion when useful. I still have no idea why there is an announcement of weekly game details when there is not weekly game changes. The FoF has never made any sense.

    Put the files into the Source folder in your BB folder. Should work fine.

    um ... that's not quite what I meant.

    FoF is a heartbeat. All else failing, it gives us a nod of "yes, we're still here; don't panic". And if I remember correctly, one of the motivators was merely complaints that not everyone was seeing the information that devs sometimes provided players in answers to questions on boards. But somewhere along the way, expectations on this board have morphed and the FoF is being treated as a lightning rod for all the anxieties and frustrations people have.

    I remember when Wilki started the FOF. I know I was one of probably quite a few people who repeatedly asked for EA to do a "Grab Bag" like Sanya did for Mythic.

    When FOF debuted, I seem to remember it being pretty good. The content quality has dropped a lot since then. I don't blame Jeremy for that personally, as I'm sure it has more to do with corporate politics. I think EA is afraid if they give up their UO seekrets, the terrorists will win.

    Oh well. I am hoping for some real news today though.
