    A new rule has been passed down about UO search engine style sites. EA has deemed them an illegal third party programs.

    <blockquote><hr>

    sites that purport to "search" vendors are using scripts to do so, and are therefore illegal.

    Stratics has a policy where illegal third party sites/programs cannot be linked to or discussed.

    Please add these to your list of 'things not to be discussed on Stratics'.

    Them publicising it, only makes it more popular. They would be better adding some kind of facility thats legal.

    No, it's not, you're just too used to WoW.

    The fact that UO doesnt have an auction house like system means that it is possible to find good deals, and actually really viable being a trader and running a shop, helping to add that community feel .

    In WoW, the people you buy from are faceless maybe they are someones level 1 auction house alt... In UO on europa you have many vendor houses and well known vendors.

    To impliment a global system like WoW has is to kill vendor shops and one of the things still making UO unique in a gaming world where every five minutes there is a new MMO, community.

    i am guessing that what we have here is yet another 'toothless tiger'. they wont address scripting so its pretty certain they wont enforce this either [​IMG]

    My post is about Stratics policy.

    What EA do or don't do about it is irrelevant.

    Discussion of illegal programs/sites on Stratics is against RoC, so therefore, everyone, please don't mention them in your posts.

    Maybe so, but not many people are going to spend hours searching for awesome deals when they can simply do so by using certain websites.

    EA know they can't crack down, and they have known this site has existed for a long time.

    Running around mousing over every induvidual item, then checking induvidual stats is not fun, especially the amount of dross people put in vendors. I understand peoples concerns about the community, but nothing will be done about this, so why should players who legitimally pay the game be at a disadvantage?
