    EA hasn't dropped UO. All the UO related stuff is on the Origin site. It has been that way for a while now.

    UO, IS also on the EA site btw.

    Either type Ultima Online in the search bar, or choose "Legacy" as the release date.

    Point proven. Origin and Mythic are both child companies of the juggernaut that is EA.

    More doom and gloom? You wont find light bulbs looking in the paint department either. Look in the correct place and you will find it.

    I think THP thought UO Shard Shield transferred to another company for a second, that's all ;P.

    Had the same issue with the Ford site. Seems to be lacking any info or updates on the hotrod retro, hybrid or pure electric versions of the Pinto.

    It seems to me that Mythic is quite happy to feature UO smack dab in the middle of their site.... If they're taking us seriously, then shouldn't we make our best attempt to do the same.... Karma people, Karma :cool:

    Actually I run my own very successful Photography Studio and its been very successful for the last 12 years and to get a business to be as successful as mine you will find that I need to put around 16 hours a day into it. You would be lucky if I can put more than 7 hours a week into playing UO. So don’t give the crap about being able to play 24/7. Being able to brows the web on my Ipad any time of the day is a benefit of running my own business.

    Had a look at the Warhammer official forum. They have it even worse than we do.

    Was just sad that a couple of folks at work were asking about this mysterious online game.....Ultima Online....they have never heard of it...alas they are a couple of the young lads at work... and wether it was worth a look at.....i tried to explain the game .. But in the end said just go to the game makers site EA Games [http://www.ea.com/uk] and you will see some screen shots etc etc....Alas the next day they told me the game didnt even exist [LOL]....when i checked for myself they were right..no Ultima on the EA Site.....I shall tell them to go the mythic site [http://www.mythicentertainment.com/]...though the chance of snagging a couple of new players to have a look in.... has i think fell by the wayside at the first hurdle....nevermind...

    I'd just tell them to Google UO... I sure wouldn't recommend they go to EA after all EA has been on the top of the Worst Companies list 2 years running.... so I'm gonna guess anyone with half a brain would avoid EA stuff like the plague that it is.

    Do you see WoW on the Activision front page? No, because they have their own site that people use.

    Nice controversial ******** thread title with approx. as much valid content as usually befits controversial ******** thread titles:p Do you get paid by thread view count or something THP?

    When it comes to world of digital entertaiment, InternationalMegaCorporation.com is not an adress the international mega corporation wants you to visit or use or remember. They are the ones who have spend last..what, 10 years thinking of ways to *** with consumers. In ugly world of AAA video game mega corps, more disconnected brand of product is from the corp behind the product, better it is for the corp. There are some PR victories like Steam or (old) Blizzard where this does not apply. Then you have comppanies like EA or Microsoft where it most assuredly applies.

    Bottomline, nobody cares what is happening at EA.com. Site is poorly maintained and EA does not want or expect anyone to actually use it for anything at all. It is a bad place to search for signs of impending demise.

    It shouldnt be a matter of EA supporting UO..it should be if anyone does!

    I don't see why you're getting so upset though, no one is saying "Hey idiot, who cares!" I think most people are confused to why you would give ea.com to someone so they could learn about the game. Heck uo guide.com or stratics would have been a better choice. Nevermind the fact the UO.com is the games official website. But I agree no need to get post counts on the thread..:moving along:
