I have had some great friends in this game over the years. Most have already moved on to others games. I love UO. It was the first online game i ever played. I played the first few years. Quit, then came back. I love the new fishing quests but I can't get over all the item based features in the game now. That's the way it is. O well. I'm not saying a classic shard will save UO but it would keep some of us playing. January 1, 2011 end date.
