    This is a spinoff of the other post that I think would be kinda neat to see what people will do.

    I only upgraded two of my 3,697 accounts to SA. *backs up* I don't have that many - really I don't!

    I only upgraded 2 to SA and will probably only upgrade those two to High Seas.

    That number would increase if my income rose drastically. I'm not expecting that to happen 'til a little further down the road though.

    I can see 5 accounts of mine, perhaps later a few more if I truly need them but beyond that I cant see a need.

    In all fairness, there should be if it's to be a success.

    I find the idea that the many multi-account players that have helped keep the game alive, not getting some form of discount, abhorrent.

    Why not reward them for their loyalty, instead of penalising them... :thumbup1:

    I will not upgrade my Account. There is in the end after 13 Years UO no point in paying for more Bugs. This Booster will end like all upgrades before ... first 1 or 2 days Peoples are excited and tries everything. After that the first Players will cry here about Bugs and what not. Then the rest of the Players jumps on the Train too and cries cause there had been nothing for PvP, no nerfs for <insert a Random Skill here> and so on. To buy this Booster with all Bugs, is like buying a Salami Pizza without Salami on it.

    I'm not sure I will upgrade. Not because it isn't an in-depth booster, which I think it is, just that a few of the things that I would be interested in, such as improved t-maps, taming the new drags, etc. don't appear to be covered or haven't been answered yet.

    I spent a lot of time building to 100 fishing and really wouldn't look forward to going to 120. The pirate battles and bosses were neat, but the rewards didn't really seem that exciting or 'rewarding'. I'm not sure what I expected from them, but it didn't seem to meet it.

    We'll see, I may cave, but really wasn't as enthusiastic as when the initial announcement and beta started.

    As much as I want UO:AHS to be a success, I cannot, in good conscience, tell EA that this current development structure is "okay" by purchasing it. My hopes for the idea of a Booster Pack Expansion have become the very thing I feared they would: A "let's focus everything we've got on this mini-expansion, get it up to speed so it's passable, tie it with something foofy that will make people want to buy it, and release!"

    That's not a formula for success, and so my vote will remain: 0 accounts upgraded.

    note to pollster:
    poorly laid out/queried
    My "vote" does not reflect that it means none of two
    nor does it "grasp"(reflect/indicate) that I have also >quit< recommending UO to others ... which says a lot more than >anything< :sad4:


    o'well ...

    I have two houses, both half empty, no sense bothering to upgrade for the storage upgrade. And I don't like the rest, or need the rest, or want the hassle of the bugs... or....

    I have two acc, both will be upgraded, not for the storage even if that will be fine too.
    Im looking forward to most of it, and what I dont like will be good for others and that way benefit the game.
    My fisher is exited and took a course in cooking. It was extremely easy nowdays! Using her piles of fish steaks that was just lying around she becoame gm in no time! Leg fisher next!

    Scalis sound just like something for my cracy guild as well! The rest will be interesting to find out when it comes , I have not red about everything and dont want to know details in advance.
    I expect bugs, but I bet I have seen worse during my 10+ years here non stop.(AoS atleast) So bring it on!:popcorn:

    One account with the fisher and another two for storage (they get an extra 15$ because the Fisher not on those two accounts) Not going to get it for the other account with it lacking the SA. Not like some BOD runners need to swing a pirate from a yard arm.

    They need a better pub man. When they said they would release this booster the wording could of been better. "some issues with the use of the booster will glitch out, reason being till we see how the population uses the new tools, and we are undecide on the rout we will take to chosen playstyles"
    Nnot letting the player throw the BUG word around freely.

    I still use the EC even though it locks up sometimes when recalling. Have to relaunch the game to play on. At least the good old days of waiting for someone else to lock up to relog into the game is gone. Just put the BUGs into a brighter light and just think of them as a gold sink.

    I will get a load of game time with the new booster also. My issue will be when exploring the new content the lack of story line from the NPCs. Hate the Zelda method of groping around clicking on every pixel trying to find new content. Seems even those that ahd got on test don't even know if the 120 fishing PS is quest gotten or added to the champ drop RNG.

    I really do wish more people would take a stand against this preposterous type of game development. UO has always been about bringing in a large expansion, and then trying (at least I think they try) to perfect the content in that expansion. Obviously this is no longer the game-plan seeing as how terrible the SA expansion was handled compared to the SE expansion. I do not NEED nor WANT new content until the previously released content is as perfectly implemented as it can be. The release of this new booster will adjust the focus from the problems in the game now, to the problems that arise from the new booster. I feel like the groundhog just saw his shadow...

    I'll upgrade all my accounts (6). Mainly for the storage increase. The increased storage helps alot on the shards where the chars are living out of thier banks.

    That and every one needs more lock downs in thier castles.

    None in fact when my accounts reach the end of their billing cycle its game over for me. I found a classic style shard w/ Texas holdem poker(pre:AOS) that is everything I want out of UO.

    Better question is why he's LYING about it... Since, as of right now, the EA Store, UOgamecodes.com and the Bioware store don't even have the booster for sale yet...

    He's not lying, for a very brief time the upgrade did appear on uogamecodes and a few people bought it.

    My guessed eavesdrop of the conversation between Mythic and uogamecodes goes like this:

    Why do you have the booster for sale already?
    You gave us the info.
    But we told you put it up TUESDAY!
    oh. Sorry. We'll take it down again.

    I think the poll (like all UO Stratics polls) needs an extra option "I don't have any active accounts, I just post on Stratics".
    I voted none, as someone already said, I can hardly justify paying the monthly fee...

    I am currently busy in Sosaria with several projects. However, to be fair and honest, even were I not already busy with existing accounts and upgrade levels, I had no plan to upgrade any accounts.

    During the next 12 months, if UO continues to be available, I will focus on enhancing, unraveling, and organizing my "stuff" as I close a few accounts.

    I will wait and see what future, if any, is coming.
