    Can you tell us what the problem is? Sometimes players can help a bit, if we know what's wrong

    I don't think he is in the mood to talk. I know its a harsh situation to be in and you don't want to hear it. But we no longer have a support team who is dedicated to the players of UO.

    There are not enough people subscribed to pay the bills of a large support team, we now share our GM's with 2 other games, i cant remember the names off the top of my head. But i do remember them EA/Mythic saying so.

    I asked because the last person to post in a panic was panicking when there was no real need and players were able to assure him of that.

    And quite often you find that we can help, It was a valid question. But with the cap locks on and screaming at everyone, I'm guessing he is in no mood to chat.

    How the fark do you know what it cost to pay your "large support team" (whatever random number that may be in your head)
    and what the operating costs are to maintain UO?

    Hmm maybe i ran a support team for a software house and having a support team of 4 cost $150,000 to run. Maybe that's how the frack i know how much it cost to run a software support team. So I would imagine that with all the GM names we get on Christmas cards etc they all add up to more than 4 people supporting UO, then you have the wages of the Dev team which also come under support and there adjacent costs. I would imagine UO as it stands costs well over $300,000 just keep maintained. So who the frack are you to question how I know?

    LOL your knowledge of software support is not accurate to ALL support,so get over yourself. :talktothehand:

    Its like me saying that since I have worked at truck driving, I know what it costs nationwide to operate in any truck at any distance for any employer.

    Paaaalease.

    I bet the OP got his ingame support not long into this little temper tantrum. Not surprising he hasn`t been back to say anything,I`d be embarrassed too. I found this thread more comedic than anything, since it was posted on a Saturday, plus actually thinking a GM would just be sittin on his ass reading Uhall to begin with. :coco:

    Well said.

    A lot of drama and a lack of actual business knowledge makes for good reading everytime :)

    If they had 400 GM's ingame 24/7 on every shard you would still get people coming here ranting that they waited too long for a gm to come and retrieve the pile of raw fish steaks they accidentally dropped behind a chest. And you would also get the same tagalongs here saying "hell ya! Gm's suck and take too long"

    Well, the OP took time to post twice wondering about our post deletion policy and Petra's eventual bad mood, but he did not state what in fact his business was.... weird?

    So you keep saying, yet you offer no proof. So if you can offer no explanation of your argument other than im wrong then assume your just trolling. You can call everyone wrong, but without showing me any proof im wrong, you are saying that you don't have a clue what you're talking about and just bumping your gums.

    Tell me where my business sense is all wrong or shhh. Put up or shut up.
