I hate when OSI lied to us.

    The official announcement is that the event will end on Tuesday. So I took a day off. And on Friday and Sunday, I played all day to send all my characters to Casca until my right arm and wrist can hardly move without hurting. Now I have most of my characters stuck in that prison. And I have nothing to do today.

    It's people like you that cause EA to keep their lips zipped about upcoming stuff.

    They didn't make you abuse yourself. You did so voluntarily. They didn't lie to us either. They told us when they planned to wrap things up and something prevented them from making that deadline.

    You can use the "Help - I'm stuck" option to get out. However, I'm not sure Ulrich is still around to turn in the note into tickets...

    On the bright side, you now have a couple of relatively rare Casca notes that may be worth some gold in a couple of years.

    If you're actually "stuck" and cant get out... without paging a GM, if you need help and you're on Pac, let me know. I'll get you out.

    When the information is not clear and misleading, it hurts the customers who buy their products. Maybe consumers should sue EA to teach them a lesson. Or maybe EA wants to close Ultima Online. They are just using every tactic to force players quit the game.

    No.. You read wrong. She did not say it would be shut down on Tuesday. She said it would be shut down by Tuesday. Big difference.
    If it would have gone past Tuesday then she would have lied.

    I'd love to see you go before a judge or jury with this one.

    Let's deconstruct. They have mentioned that this event has to be turned on and off manually I think. They had some problem that prevented them from taking it down on Friday. They explain to be people that they will fix this problem and take the event down by Tuesday at the latest. They figure it out the problem pretty quickly on Monday and take it down. They get it down early this week before Tuesday.

    They didn't lie. They may have used a wording that wasn't as precise as you would have liked, but they did nothing malicious. I did a few Melissa runs yesterday for fun since I figured it would be my last chance.
     
  9. Thank you.
    Geez.
    Now people complain because they dont read.

    Maybe other people are right. I should stop worrying about EA informing us. Its a double edge sword.

    The event was supposed to end Friday. It didn't. You had 2 more days to do whatever you wanted. This event has been going on for 3 weeks now. I'm sure you got plenty of tickets if you were that dedicated to doing it so much.

    So be glad with what you got already and don't whine about being foiled trying to game the system.

    I hate it when they lie to us too. They announced it was supposed to be turned off on Friday before. That would have saved us from having to listen to you.

    Are there any good moments in your life? I ask that because the majority of your posts are simply bitter/negative/ and almost always involve a personal attack.....

    If you think that you obviously haven't looked at the majority of my posts. :p

    Over the last few days it's definitely been like that though. Seeing all the whining and complaining and people obviously trying to strike at the devs when most of them probably are the ones at fault puts me in a pretty bad mood.

    I also have zero tolerance for people that complain endlessly about problems they themselves either caused or could have prevented.
     
  15. Funny.
    Good use of sarcasm, taking with a lightness.

    If you wait until the last minute to complete something, and it goes kaput, you've got only yourself to blame. You didn't allow for mishaps obviously....anyone with responsability doesn't take that route, in real life or in a game world.....I sure as hell don't. My kid on the other hand....well, he's young and hasn't figured out the do's and don't yet.....also, if you're going to sit, parked at a pc and click until you swell up the muscles in the ulna to the point of circulation cut-off in your digits,.....you obviously have no self respect for your body.

    My highschool english teachers all seemed to love my bleedingly sarcastic sense of humor. I guess it was a nice change for them from the TYPICAL brand of highschool humor. :p

    Well, I did read that Tuesday statement also, and as a non native English speaker I took the Tuesday for truth as well.
    So I got some time looking in today (due to vacation travels very sporadically) with one of my "stationary" resurrection chars (with scroll in backpack of course).
    And *umpf* Casca gone.
    Went to hand in the scroll for the spring cleaning deed - Ulrich gone as well.
    Would have been nice at least to be able to complete the started quest, for what removing Casca would have been enough ...
    Not upset, but also not happy.

    *Salute*
