    From what I can see, it looks like Japanese players probably can't purchase it yet either. There is no promotional type announcement for it yet on the UO Japan site, as you might expect. The most recent announcements there are just a reminder that all shards were to get Publish 82 on the 24th and an announcement about an emergency maintenance for Izumo.

    From Uo.com .. when you can get onto the site:

    "Publish 82 is being published on TC1 today, it will be on Origin and Izumo on
    Thursday/Friday during their maintenance.
    The publish will go live on Monday June 24th during morning maintenance."

    The publish is live on the shards. Otherwise i would not be able to craft workable glass and stone and plate amulets for gargoyles. Only thing missing is Origin store to give us the code to activate the Kings collection. :)

    I wonder if all this hitting the server, errors, reboots might be why I'm getting 94 bypes/second download of the EC client. Yeah, you read that right. It says it will take approximately 5 HOURS to download the client. I'm not sure I'm THAT patient. I am on vacation afterall...

    It takes time to make a proper cappuccino and espresso with a twist. Priorities, ya know?

    I mean, given proper publish schedules, the details should have all been worked out before going live. Details, details...

    My client download was interupted saying I had been disconnected from the server. I started the download again and it went from 0% to 80% in a few seconds. So apparently my internet connection didn't sucketh as bad as I thought!

    $10 for a few new art tiles is completely absurd. I had originally been thinking I would get this for all my accounts if it was reasonably priced... Alas, for the content per $ I will only do a few of them.

    The real downside is I would have been will to spend much more to upgrade them all with a price point around 5.99 than I will spend to upgrade a few of them @9.99.

    Another fine example of EA losing customer $$.

    I was just able to purchase, BUT, after successfully applying code to account on account management page, my code does NOT work in-game to get items.

    Code is fine on acc management - no items appear in game though..... Guess there must be some bugs in the system!

    OK I worked it out.

    Take your code and put a - after the first 6 digits and then after every 5 thereon, and then copy paste the code in the game option window as normal and the token appears. it would seem that the Origin site is not producing the code in the format that the game uses to process the request for tokens.....

    You know what's irritating? Having more than one account you want to purchase for ...... ordering them 1 by on and only getting a real code on the first purchase. This will seriously tick me off...

    Raise your hand if you cut-and-paste the code you receive in emails?

    *Raises hand*

    Is this a test of some sort? HELLOOOO... anyone at the Origin store listening?

    NO one at Origin even knows about UO.

    I just spent the last 40 min chatting with some idiot over there at Origin and he tells me I'm to "wait" till tomorrow to see if I do or do not get my codes...

    I said listen here !!!!! I can see on my bank statement right now 4 purchases of 9.99.... I get one code I want my other 3.... NOW... not tomorrow..... not next week..... NOW.

    He says well we are waiting for your bank to respond.

    I said after 15 years why is it I am having to play stupid games with you morons over at Origin everytime I want to upgrade my 9 accounts..... I have 9 accounts I OUGHT to be able to buy in bulk 9 codes for an upgrade when it comes out. And seriously if i wanted to buy 20 why would it matter?????? Are you or are you not in a business to make MONEY? What the heck is so freaking hard about allowing folk the ability to purchase more than one stinking code for the same item at a time???????? There is NO REASON we should have to jump thru all these stupid hoops and play this dumb game of wasting time and energy and pissing off your player base every time there is a new expansion.... Tell someone to get their act together and allow people to purchase MULTIPLE codes. Cripes sakes WTF do they think I'm going to do with them??????

    I don't understand why it has to be so Damned difficult...

    MalagAste - did you get more than the first code yet? NM - I see you replied before I hit submit.

    I too would like to upgrade a few accounts.

    On subsequent re-visists to Origin to try and purchase more than one code,I'm getting a
    "You've already purchased this item. Please remove the item to proceed with your purchase." message.

    I do not want the hassle of contacting CS to get my item.
    Can anyone verify that multiple purchases work?

    Another Classic UO memory in the making ....

    I went thru purchasing 4 times. It gave me one code and all subsequent emails are BLANK in the area where there OUGHT to be a code... the last one says "Request Pending" and it's being "reviewed".... However my bank shows 4 purchases from EA for 9.99... but like I said I only got the one actual code. This is enough to make me extremely angry... and I told the idiot over at the chat that I was pretty ticked off.

    He's like what would you like me to do? I was like Get my the damn codes I purchased? How hard is that? He says..... "Well you need to wait a day for your bank to clear the payments."..... I'm like "Listen you idiot... if you all would let me purchase the number of upgrades I needed all at once instead of having me play this stupid one at a time BULLS***..... I would have my codes already and be happily playing my game and have upgraded all my accounts...... despite the fact that your stupid code isn't even in the right format for the damn game to give me my reward in the first place. Now you have to piss me off by playing this crap for like the 10th time.... I just want to upgrade my ACCOUNTS... Accounts as in plural..... MORE THAN ONE... I have no idea why that is such a strange concept for you at EA but I have more than one UO account and I want to upgrade them all without having to have a big hassle and have to contact support every freaking time there is a new expansion.".... But NOOOOO I have to play games to play my game.

    Tried that with no joy!

    Have a friend in Germany who does not have this problem with the site over there, so this could be just restricted to the UK only?

    This works, thanks for the info, cancels GM page to fix it.

    I shake my head at how a company can continuously make seriously DUMB MISTAKES pretty much EVERY SINGLE TIME THEY PROMOTE ANYTHING. AGAIN, product issue is an epic fail by ea/origin. Do they have any quality control in this company?????
