How do I buy UO?

    I'm sure this will all look completely silly, but I am genuinely curious: how do I buy UO?

    I was thinking about playing it on the official servers, for nostalgia sake and because I never really had the chance to play on anything but free shards back in the day. I tried registering for the 14 day trial, but that doesn't work. It always ends in an error. So I decided to just click the Origin link there on the sidebar of the website and try to buy it.

    On the Origin website you can find various Ultima related items, such as gender changes and servers tranfers, even that naval-expansion-thing, but apparently the game is nowhere to be seen. Or maybe I'm just blind. I installed Origin's client and tried a search there: it returns nothing. Wasn't Origin a platform to sell EA games?

    Now I am at a loss. I contacted Origin's support via live chat six or seven times to ask about it and they would either tell me to e-mail [email protected] or just disconnect after saying they "would lead me through a few steps for troubleshooting".

    Seriously, how do I buy it?

    Uo.com should pick account management, and then new/edit account

    Yep, lying about the country magically made it work. I wonder why it just won't tell you the reason why you can't create the account when you try to set up the trial.

    Thank you very much.

    I'm trying to come back but with this EA account thing i can't find which expansions i already have. I don't remember (shame on me). How can i find out?
    Another question. The High Seas booster is for sale right? Can't seem to find it in Origin store in my country (Portugal)

    Thanks in advance :)
