    - I just wanted to get it out there because:

    Read the section: What's to Come

    I more firmly believe now that we will be hearing about SA tomorrow...

    Loseing hope more and more each day with all this lack of information


    Saying we like fire, sorry we cannot talk about it or that developer was not in the office for me to ask is getting way way to old

    I just pray to god whatever they have planned involves completing the 50% of KR that needs to be done to make it a halfway viable client.

    I honestly do not believe any of the UO staff is working on
    anything other than UO related stuff.
    Also, I could definitely read the excitement in Jeremy's words which
    also makes me excited...will definitely be listening to this Town Hall:danceb::danceb::D

    ...

    *Witholds judgement*

    While I disagree with the above statement on KR not being a viable client, I agree with the sentiment that it would be nice to know that work will be resuming on the client.

    10th year rewards are great (and a year late), but what about 11th year rewards? Are these to be a year late as well???

    I was excited to hear the san diego meeting, especially seeing teh farce on friday the day before, let me refresh you on that a sec

    The thunder at the san diego town hass was fire, cant talk about it and couldnt ask the developer was out of town.


    Now today there is no FOF meanign that there is no thunder to brag about for seattle town hall.


    I hope I am very wrong, as I am needing something to renew my faith in the game, and staff, includeing the lack of communication from the community liason.

    I don't. I want to believe but I simply can no longer expend my energy waiting on things I feel I should already have.

    My fear is that what they believe will be some big news will be just another part of some grand puzzle(delay) to what is supposed to be a big thing. I'm still waiting on something epic to be added to UO and I keep getting the feeling that the people who are promoting this don't know what epic is for UO any longer.

    This announcement is going to mean a great deal for the future of UO I believe. I hope it's what we all want it to be.

    Ok folks seriously now....

    I pay 10 bucks a month. I play on average about shrugs 30 Plus hours a week and have FUN doing it!!!! stress the fun part.

    Now dont get me wrong. I do get frustrated with alot of things in the game. For sure. We are all human. But where else can you find 120 hours a month of FUN stuff to do for only 10 bucks??? seriously now?

    I hope this town hall goes great! I hope they bring in alot of good stuff. I do dream that UO makes it to half the subs that WoW has. yeah thats a dream :p

    But seriously now. Ill be listening to the town hall. seeing whats coming. But also on the flip side. Just having FUN with this game!!! Isnt that what its really about?? I mean heck..only 10 bucks a month..come on now...my water bill is more than my UO account. :D


    I also DO hope the devs bring alot of new adventures out, but also in the back of my mind I know once the serves come up with the new stuff...within minutes people will find every loop hole there is..and start posting it on stratics. On the flip side..Its new and hopefully FUN stuff too :D. This is make beleive world where it fun. No stress from bosses and people.. :D

    So aye I will be listening...but I still want to know..why was the radio station banned? :D

    Maybe I'm reading too much into this, but does this mean an expansion and maybe a retail box.

    No, it means that Jeremy is sooooo creative she can only use the word 'awesome' over and over to try to sell to ppl that the UO team actually invests energy into this game.








    Which they clearly don't.

    I truely believe there will never be another box edition to ever hit store shelves again. They will try their hardest to cut cost to keep the game alive for as long as we pay for it.

    Every new edition will be download only from File Planet lol and we all remember how well that went

    I think awesomeness is a good descriptive word.

    (But then again I do have a soft-spot for the tv show 'How I Met Your Mother', and I love that Neil Patrick Harris brought awesome back into my personal vernacular.)

    Oh yeah:

    "The next Live Events phase is the awesomeness that simply cannot be contained, and we'll be getting that out to you just as soon as we find a box big enough to hold it."


    I firmly believe that's a hint being dropped towards those of us that want a retail box. I wish *crosses fingers* that they've been working on kr and have done enough to to release it in a box format or something awesome like that. Whatever poster said that this would make or break it for a lot of customers was definitely talking about me.

    It means that whatever "awesome" crap they're supposed to tell us about has already been delayed until at least Publish 56. So instead of something "awesome" our next publish is going to be some bugfixes and a Siege ROT tweak. Joy.

    Why am I not surprised?

    Anyone else find it ironic that WRR people got suspended in game for advertizing their URL in-game, yet Jeremy advertized it TWICE yesterday on uoherald.com?

    Just sayin... *runs off laughing* To hell with it, I'll probably be listening in anyway.

    And plants :)

    So to confirm and recap, 55 is late cause 56 was going into it. Now 56 and probably a lot of 55 has been pulled, to be delivered later.

    Now move along, nothing else to see here...
     
  29. Jeremy

    Jeremy Guest

    Well, actually some of 56 is now in 55 and some of 55 is now in 56. Are you confused yet?
     
  30. Coranthe

    Coranthe Guest

    I don't see how you folks can believe this has anything to do with SA. She clearly stated it was the "Live Events" that were too big for 55. Surely an expansion this far behind isn't a set of live events that last a month or less.

    I started out that way... I just hope the RoT changes make it soon. I am thinking about rebuilding all of my Siege characters to change it up a bit. Staleness has kinda set in.

    is that meaning that we are not sure what is in 55 anymore we hyped it up so much and now cannot deliver as usual from the hype?

    Wait the Thunder this time is that you hyped this publush up so muhc it is another fizzle as usual?

    Umm...let's see.

    Does UOHerald have a ToS that prohibits giving out URLs?

    Does the Game, Ultima Online, have a ToS prohibiting in-game dissemination of URLs?

    No...I don't find those two facts ironic at all.

    You know...logic can be a powerful ally. If you actually use it.

    Just sayin...*Walks Away Shaking His Head*

    Jeremy, just an observation, but might you be better served if FoFs the day preceding Town Halls were actually more robust than usual - it might hit a larger audience and better facilitate dialogue at the meeting :) Ah but then, there are those pesky competing needs...
     
  36. I was thinking the same. I just hit 130 months.. acct was closed for a few of them however i want my 11yr rewards.

    ohmighosh, I just heard my grandmother's voice saying that, and she would have put the emphasis on 'plenty' because she just knew what I had been up to, even tho there was absolutely no way she could have known

    kay, apprehension just turned to dread

    Jeremy, if you guys don't announce an expansion with a retail box then it's basically epic fail. Getting up there and blabbering about some more city invasion events that, oops, have already been delayed? Not gonna cut it.

    Like I posted earlier, Talk is cheap. I will be tuned in to listen, but I wont get too excited about anything ya say, we've heard it before.

    Show us, Talk now, and then deliver for a change. Then, we will be happy.

  44. Caelas

    Caelas Guest

    Logic, eh? Ok, here's this:

    A popular game (not to name names, but Warcraft) has a strict policy about gold buying and selling. If you advertise in-game a gold selling / buying site, chances are someone will report you.

    Blizzard (the people that make Warcraft, in case you don't know) follows the same rules it's players do: they don't link gold selling/buying sites, and they won't sponser sites that even have ads to them, regardless of being intensional or not. For example, the WoW Stratics site at one time has I believe Google ads...that had a gold selling ad in it. Blizzard refused to link the WoW Stratics site because they saw it. Totally un-intensional ad placement, but Blizzard isn't going to be hypocritical.

    Now, we have WRR people being suspended because of in-game links. Why, who cares. There had to be a reason. BUT...the UO website can link the SAME site?

    EAMythic = hypocricy. They can link, but the players can't.

    Doesn't seem logical to me. Seems...oh...unprofessional.

    Really?

    I am of the mind that they could announce an expansion, come to your house and install it for you, update KR, and get 25 million subs, and you would still *****.

    I could be wrong...but talk is cheap.

    And your sig really says it all.

    Why be a Good Finder, when you can continually find Fault?

    I mean...why do what is hard, when you can take the path of least resistance?

    EA has screwed up plenty. They have obviously done one or two things right, as well.

    How about every time you *****...you find as many things that you Like about the game?

    After all...if you REALLY hate UO THAT much...wouldn't one think that finding another game to play would just make sense?

    Good Lord.:coco:

    UO links to the WRR Radio Site from a website.

    A Website. Not In Game.

    You understand the difference...yes?

    One is In Game and Against the ToS...

    The other is Out of Game, and totally legal, based on the ToS.

    You fail this logic test...but a valiant attempt.

    WRR advertised their site In Game

    They got suspended for it.

    They could have told people to go to the UO Herald...they could have told the people to Google UO Herald to find it...anything...but the DJs didn't do that.

    Until the rules allow them to post URLs In Game, then they take the chance that they could be suspended for posting a URL, In Game, when they do it.

    Make sense?

    I don't think people that "hate" the game are here asking that it be made better, and for most of the posts, that's what I see

    I'll concede that there are those that only whine, some of whom don't even play anymore, and you would be right to call them out

    the rest of us just rant because we want the game to improve, we want more people to discover it's unique qualities, and we sure as heck don't want it to slip off into oblivion

    You missed my point entirely.

    I do understand the concept of a website and in-game. Please don't think otherwise...I'd hate to see you stress yourself using more bold. Perhaps underscore next time? Or italics? Oh, here's an idea...re-read my post. Same ideas present themselves. In WoW, you advertise in game, got get hit. The webmasters follow the very rules that the players have to. Keeps things neat and professional.

    In case you need it pointed out...the point is EA-Mytic is being hypocritical posting the very same URL on its own website that it suspended players for.

    If a company is going to make rules, they should at least have the decency to follow them. It is very much like a police officer arresting you for posession then smoking pot as they drive you to jail...
