As the title states.
First you open a bunch of young accounts, then milk it and after people figure it out send a email to wait a month for the fix.
You have to wait for someone else to report it. Usually one of the guys you sold it to for around 500 dollars, and who found out you lied when you said you were selling to this person exclusively.
Sarcasm aside, Id say contact an advisor first, but honestly i wouldnt trust advisors if the exploit is at all profitable to not take advantage of it themselves.
Email mesanna. thats really all you can do.
Why don't you just email Mesanna directly? If its a serious exploit this would be what I would do.
This is what I'm doing.
How is exploiting UO profitable? There is such a small player base that I'd be surprised if there were more than a handful of players who actually purchase anything outside of the game. Wouldn't it be more profitable to concentrate on games with larger player bases like WoW, DoTA, GW2, etc.? I'm just kind of stunned that UO would be a target of any such enterprises. Its sort of like a band of thieves who only target Dariy Queens in rural towns.
becuase im pretty sure no one checks that
you'd be surprised. for one, UO players are old. this often means jobs (who would have thought?) and more $$ than time. So uo is actually much more profitable than other games. Its very likely that more $$ changes hands behind the scenes than UO makes from subscriptions at this point. Just ask the owner of all the burnt houses or just folk in general who like to have nice things but dont have alot of time to play / years of bankroll behind accounts.
i agree with Smoot.
as a 40year old professional i find it easier to sometimes purchase items then invest the time in game to get them.
if this means purchasing a token or gold or items or whatever.
for anyone who makes over 100k a year the thought of dropping $100 here and there to enhance my game play dosnt phase me at all.
thats like saying that Broadsword and EA are missing a big cash cow by not putting a bunch of stuff up for sale on their web page.
for instance, if they where to put vet reward token up on EA for say $5-10 a shot i would think nothing of dropping $200 on that right now.
say they put up a game pack that allowed you to have a house on every shard, id drop $100 on that and wouldnt bat an eye.
while my wife dosnt play UO she is the same as me and will drop $100 on her game from time to time without thought.
the age of UO players has changed from teens and twenties 17.5 years ago to 35-40 year old stable income people who have money they want to spend.
OMG I think hell is freezing over ..... I agree with Smoot too...
UO is seriously missing the boat on selling stuff to us old vets. But yes most of us have jobs and such to pay for our addiction to UO... enough that many of us have multiple accounts so dropping bucks on UO every month isn't something we are concerned with.
And sadly there are still enough of us obviously buying things we shouldn't otherwise the gold sellers and the scammers, the unattended macroers would have moved on to some other game to milk money from. The reason they stay is that there must be an income here.
I was rather hoping that the new vendor search would put some places more out of business but... hasn't seemed to hurt them really. They are still at it.
I just sold a pair of items for more gold then I have ever had in game before and went on a buying spree but it truelly left me wanting more. I've looked at the cost of $billion and was shocked to see both how "cheap" it was and how easy it is to get. This said I'm not sure if I would be up for it and I'd rather support the game vs some random person but as it stands if I wanted to do such I have no other choice.
The problem with tokens is that they are easily duped. I would rather see it applied directly to the account.
meh. same bell i've been ringing forever. Ditch the sub and open up a real marketplace in game.
I believe Mesanna was wanting to make an "in-game" store... which would in my opinion be fantastic.... though I fear hacking to increase if that happens. Scary thing to think about there. But... at any rate I'd like it.
And one special thing I want to say... @S_S I want to applaud you for doing the right thing. I don't think I can say it enough to say THANK YOU for reporting such a thing. I wish there were more folk who would! Hats off to you!
Its like they are not interested in making money....
If I could buy shard transfer shields the money would flow lol
I know right? Seems that way.
Whoever is in charge of the bussiness part of uo is not very good at his/her job.... at least this is the impression I get ( no offense intended, for all I know there is probably no person in charge - at least it seems that way). People are asking for products to spend their money on. Whoever is responsible should listen to their target market.... Asap.
I sometimes imagine it like this in my head, when I think of the business part of UO, assume this is a real life store/restaurant.
*Customer Walks In*
Employee: Hello! how can I help you today?
Customer: Hi, can I buy a hamburger please
Customer: ....ok.....how about chicken?
Customer: What can I buy then?
Employee: This can of tuna fish you never asked for and don't want, take it and go.
Customer: But...but....I don't like tuna fish
Employee: Your choices are this or nothing, choose.
Customer: Uh.....Ok.....thank you.....*backs away slowly holding random can of unwanted tuna fish*.
Or else they only sell you one burger, and you have to go outside and come bacck in to buy another smh
*laughs* OMG that's hilarious!
Cake.... Or Death
Add me to the ranks of those with more $ than time. Wake up UO! I have plenty of disposable income and a UO addiction. If EA/Broadsword won't sell me what I want/need, then I will find it elsewhere.
This x100, of the few advisers whose identities are known, I wouldn't trust them to report profitable exploits to those above them, I'd highly recommend PMing a Developer or Mesanna.
I emailed Mesanna, in fact I emailed her twice! I for one, do not put my trust in advisers who are also players to the game.
Who should we email to get some improvements and new products in the uo store?
Nor do I.
If emailing the exploit to Mesanna doesn't get you any results, send it to me... I will do my best to get it fixed by abusing the crap out of it.
Remember when they were thinking of rewarding exploit reporters?
Haha that my friend is exactly how I report an exploit!
bunch of old nerds!
It would be easier to report something in UO that as NOT BEEN exploited.......jesus....
