Discussion in 'UHall' started by Jon the Fisherman, Dec 11, 2010.

  1. 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.

    Good luck to you.

    Sad to see Ultima Online loose another player.

    Even more sad, to see this happen because Ultima Onlina has become way too much an heavily item based game with all that this necessarily means like inflation, greed, dividing the player base into haves and haves not and so forth, players always fit in gear, mods and weapons to win and players always fit only to loose.......

    I have seen so many fellow players over the years leave Ultima Online because it was shifting away from being skill based and going into too much hevily being item based that it ain't funny.

    I wonder if, having all of the statistics, it could be known the balance of whether Ultima Online, eventually, gained more players for shifting into heavily item based or lost more players for leaving its being skill based.

    Personally, my feeling is that it lost more than it gained.

    Please bring back skill based to Ultima Online.

    there should be a written template for people to download when they're going to post a UO resignation letter. and yes a drunken mood makes me think you might not be thinking this through, but oh well accidents cause people

    I just hope your previous 11 posts were more interesting.

    No need to be apologetic or negative about this game. It is still great. Why in earth did you feel the need to even write about it on stratics. Do you write on the forum of every game you decide to quit playing? Just delete the software, stop paying and move on. Sick and tired of reading these messages. Maybe I should write a note every day to let everyone know I am still paying for this game...? As if your quitting somehow should mean something to me...

    having said that, can I have your stuff?

    I (fill in name) am posting here because I think I am important enough to need my own good-bye thread. I've been playing UO since (enter random date) and have loved the game. It has changed and I neither wish to or can adapt to the changes. I have given my stuff away or it will fall in my house. I owned 35 accounts but due to Mythic/EA/Origin/Mr. RIchard/Al-Quida/The US government/aliens/forces unknown killing the game as I knew it I've closed them all. Screw you guys I'm not playing.

    UO is as it has always been.
    To ***** cause you cant stand something that has become part of it is moot.
    UO players will miss friends who leave to go elsewhere.
    Go play some other game, if that is your wish. UO will still be here.
    Your free to go.

    Mamma said if you go, dont let the door hit you in the arse on your way out. She was not holding anyone hostage. Same goes for UO.

    One quick reminder..... UO is a drug you know your hooked when you return for more...

    Pre AoS players that loved the classic UO lost their game. Do you understand that our UO is gone? There seem to be alot of today players that think just adapt and play which of course is totally out of the question and was just as out when i left the game some 7 years ago.

    I'm still waiting to get my classic UO back.

    To OP, goodbye and hope for a yes or no to a classic shard asap.

    It was seven years ago. I'd guess it's probably not comin' back. Also, there seems to be some discrepancy between versions of 'classic'. Everyone has their own idea of what it is, or so it seems.
     
  19. No, the pre-AoS players that love the classic UO did not lose "their" game. I am a pre-AoS player who loves the game and I couldn't care less about a classic shard. Know what I remember about the pre-AoS days? I remember being PK'd by roving bands of PKs that a solo player or even a small guild of friends could defend against. Some of us didn't buy the game and pay our $10/month to hand over the crap that we worked hard to get to people who love non-consensual PvP. Get over yourselves already. It's getting damned annoying. Want pre-AoS back? Go to a free shard or create your own but for the love of all that is good and holy, STFU about it already!

    considering that he first posted about 6 months ago about some cactus breeding problem, I don't think he is the type that would have cared one iota about a pre-AoS shard. Perhaps the iphone game pocket frogs is more for him.

    12 posts... obviously your great friends are not on the boards here. why are you saying goodbye here. this is the second post in about two weeks with this good bye stuff and hardly any posts. the last person had six posts. It certainly seems fake at best in a sad attempt to get uo devs attention whiner style.

    Yes we that enjoyed my type of playstyle did loose our game with AoS and we were many, so many. So spare me your love of UO after AoS cause it mean nothing to me. UO died with AoS. We have totally different opinions on what made UO a great game. The game you seem to still love is arround but the one i payed for between -97 and -03 is gone.

    Pre AoS with statloss was never non-consensual. 8/40 hour for short and long counts was not non-consensual. I havent played a MMO with such a hard ruleset for PK:s as UO, name one if you can.

    And no i wont shut up before i get a yes or no to a classic shard from Cal.
     
  27. Again, :drama: :lame: :bdh: :drama: :lame: :bdh: :drama: :lame: :bdh:

    Want the pre-AOS that you so loved? I will give you three choices:

    1: Turn off your insurance, do not use anything but GM made weapons or armor, NO arties, NO blessed anything, take off meditation, mysticism, EI, spellweaving, necro and every other skill that was put in the game post-AoS, go to Felucca and STAY there. Do not come to Trammel or any Trammel rule-set facet for ANY reason. Do NOT participate in champ spawns and lock all skills at 100. Oh yeah, lose the 255 stat cap. Lock everything at 225.

    There, now you have your pre-AoS game. What's that? That isn't the same? I call :bs: !!! Don't want to do that? Then tough!

    2: Go to a pre-AoS ruleset free shard and please do STAY there!

    3: Quit UO.

    There are your choices. You can pick any or all of them but for the love of God, STFU about it and stop :bdh: Unlike everyone's first year of life, during the subsequent years crying will NOT get you your way/want! :talktothehand:

    The OP has made 12 posts in 6 months. You have made 183 posts in 6 years. Post counts doesn´t mean everything.

    Maybe this guy has played for many years but never knew or bothered with signing up to Stratics until recently. Or most likely made a new account in May when he returned to UO.

    To the OP. Goodbye and hope you find something else that you enjoy.

    Turning off features in today UO is not going back to a classic game, probably the most stupid proposal i heard so far in this classic server discussion.

    I play freeshards and have done since AoS arrived that is supposed to be pre AoS but they are not.

    And now you that have your trammel version of UO to play, in what way is a classic shard such a threat to you? Cause that must be the reason why you involve yourself so much in a shard you dont have to play or in any way get involved in.

  34. It is not a threat to me. It is a threat to UO in the following ways.

    1: A classic shard would require massive re-working of the game code. That equals Dev's time and Dev's time = $$. That money would be better spent fixing YEARS old bugs.

    2: For the same reason as above but that money would be taken away from development of new content that can/will be for the enjoyment/benefit of E V E R Y O N E !

    3: Same as above but, again, the money and resources wasted could be spent on better hardware that benefits E V E R Y O N E rather than the minority who want what they had a DECADE ago rather than what the game has progressed to.

    Saavy? :next: and no more :bdh: <--- It's a frigging puddle already. Give it a rest!

    UHall needs stickied 'Hello' & 'Goodbye' threads for people to post their 'hi I'm new and/or returning!' and farewell posts in respectively. Means people get a chance to post their goodbyes etc to friends without people turning it into ANOTHER classic shard thread, perhaps with the Goodbye thread more heavily moderated to remove anything but 'leaving' posts. Would keep things a lot neater.

    A classic shars should live on it's own subscribers. I'm convinced there is enough of us that is interested in a classic shard out there to keep such a shard alive on it's own merits. Most likely will a classic shard that really is a copy of a old classic shard be the most populated of all shards.

    EA/Mythic have to decide if it is good business to open up such a classic shard.

    I and many with me is awaiting an answer in that matter and that is why some of us is here to give our view in the matter.

    It is saddening to see the state of UO's community nowadays. In the end it really seems like it has turned into another WoW type of community before OSI has been closed for good.

    First, why cause so much problem because our fellow is making a quit topic? This has always been very common here on our stratics forums and I feel inclined to believe that the only problem here is his due reasons (pro classic shard). Also, look at the attitudes of people like Bill Gates OSD, accusing our fellow of having low post counts while 4 out of his last 5 posts were JUST smiles. You sir, genius and scholar, really think your addition to our community is, by no doubts, essential, right?

    Also, I don't see why there's still classic shard talk around. Thanks god EA isn't making one and I still don't see how people are feeling unsatisfied with such decision. To the people who never known the classic era and are against one, well, they won't have one. And for the people who wanted a classic shard from EA.. Well I just hope they soon realize that OSI nowadays is just an abortion of old Origin, and that old UO is still pretty much alive (actually, way more alive than OSI itself) in the form of freeshards. Having the same company that have destroyed UO give birth to a classic shard would be the worst monstrosity possible to the eyes of the true sosarian.

    This, that EA offers, isn't UO anymore. But you need to know that UO is still around, standing strong. Servers that have implemented new ways that -do- stop reds from killing inconsequently.. do exist. To continue blind is just an option.
     
  39. Yeah, as a matter of fact, I did. :D It's size 7 though. Hmm... wait a minute...


    NO CLASSIC SHARD!

    Nope, size 7 is as big as it goes. 1000 doesn't work.
     
  40. I seriously doubt that there would be enough subscribers, even at double the going rate, to...

    A: Pay for the hardware.
    B: The bandwidth
    C: "Customer support" (I almost said it with a straight face, honest!)
    D: A separate dev team to code out all of the changes post-AoS and then to solve the bazillion bugs that doing so WILL cause.

    I grudgingly admire those of you who are asking, begging and pleading for this. I really do. My problem is that you aren't looking past your own selfish desires nor can the majority of you agree on what is "proper" pre-AoS features, items etc.

    I am selfish and so is you. No difference.

    You want the game you like to prosper and i want a game to play.

    What the answer from EA/Mythic will be is not up to you and me. Hopefully all of us classic fans together can make a difference and get a positive one.

    as much as it would be great, mythic is never making a classic shard. there are some really well run classic free shards out there that probably have more people working on them then we have on our dev team. i get the feeling that everyone who constantly posts about a classic shard just refuses to use what already exists.

    I (fill in name) am posting here because someone held a gun to my head and made me click yet another I quit thread, read it entirely, and post a smarmy reply that was completely unnecessary in an effort to score cool points on an internet forum, that is all.
