Is anyone even buying the King's Collection?

    Still waiting for my charge to be reversed after I was sold a DUPED code from Origin store! Mesanna bring out the ban stick, please. Even with 3.5 hours time on hold, in chat, and on the phone trying to get a working code, they couldn't oblige. :(

    So, I will wait, and hold onto my money until someone of authority answers my question a la Sir Lawrence Olivier..."is it safe?"

    Droves of people are buying it. The suits probably gave Messana and her tiny team the remit of creating something with their paltry resources that would sell bucket-loads. The obvious answer is DECO. Many of the players still hanging on grimly in UO do so as they love having their own custom-built dwelling that they can decorate with a plethora of junk.

    On the "need to buy" list, right after the gothic and rustic packs. The list that will be covered by my powerball winnings. When it happens.

    Nope. I'm not big into paying for something strictly cosmetic. And honestly I cant see putting any of those items in my house outside of maybe the banners/painting. The quality difference (number of colors/resolution wise) between this stuff and the old art is just too great. So the .1 sot a week isn't enough for me to pay for. :p

    I'm not buying anything from them until they change the aggro mess they've made with this loot rights fiasco.

    No one is buying it.

    This is the end of UO.

    Everyone will start playing a more PvP based game like Shadowbane within days.

    I purchased one shortly after they put it back in the store. I'm also quite happy with it. If I played with more than one account I'd most likely buy more than one if that was allowed. :)

    Bought 2. I run carp and deco vendors and like some of the items in the nice box. Also supporting UO and showing aprecheation is part of it.;)

    I brought one for Tina Tink and will buy one for Rosalia, my alchemist too.
    I don't think I will buy any for my other chars as it's is the option to craft this new item I wanted.
    We have now got 3 theme packs, that is great for crafters and I love them all. So do I with high sea.
    I hope next pack will have something that support player towns and the use of the forest, desert, swamp and mountains, so we will see more young chars, crafters with some PvM skills, resurce hunters, lockpickers and tresure hunters use it.
    Also more quests, that make players traveling the land, and I mean traveling, not gating around.

    It's ironic really, EA and it's subs, can't figure out basic shopping cart software.

    One wonders how they have ever made any money at all.

    I think it is way too expensive, but I would have bought one if the tables would have been positioned right. I love two of those tables, but since they take up 4 instead of 2 tiles its unusable for me.

    Those of you who are talking about having bought the booster (or whatever it is...theme pack? Booster? whatever) or wanting to buy it are missing the point.

    It seems to me that the original poster wanted us to talk about how no one was buying it, no one cares about that stuff, how terrible, etc.

    If I'm wrong about the intent of this thread, fine, but the signals are pretty strong.

    Other games call it DLC or "downloadable content" and it seems to be the way EA is headed in all of their games in lieu of actual expansions.

    Not going to buy it until I am sure I am going to stay in UO. My wife and I have been discussing cost vs play time vs enjoyment level. If we were to make a knee jerk reaction move, all of our accounts would be cancelled. Just let one lapse last week. The other 3 are paid up for 4, 5 and 6 months respectively.

    If I was sure we'd be staying past that, I'd buy 2 of them.

    I brought my second yesterday, no problem. Both codes worked fine.
    Be sure to copy the code and check you do not get any empty spaces in the end of the code, then use paste, "Ctrl v" to inset the code. Don't type it.

    As of two minutes ago ..

    [​IMG]

    Makes no difference if I clear browser caches, or use a different browser, or use a different PC..... the store will NOT let me buy more than one copy on my Origin account, despite being told every day this last week 'it will be resolved within 24 hours' by EA's joke support system.

    Most folk I know who bought on day one shortly after it came out before the "fix" can not buy a second because it won't let them. Now many of them have had to actually get another Mythic "master" account to "fix" the issue.... but that's not really what we'd like to do because they wanted us to only use one Mythic Masters account... and to comply with their rules we weren't supposed to... Otherwise all my accounts would still be on their own account... this is just stupid. And no one at Origin store or Mythic seems to even understand how UO works.... Or why anyone would want more than one account... either they need educated in UO or UO just plain needs to be on it's own and to have Origin/EA and Mythic mind their own business and leave it alone and quit trying to destroy the game we care about. Because how can you manage something or provide service to something you are THAT clueless about? They can't even figure out what you are talking about when you call most times. Or even when you chat with them.

    The idiot I talked to for 2 hours in their chat was dumb as a box of rocks... He couldn't fathom what I was talking about or trying to tell him when I said I'd bought 4 codes and only received one real code and 3 blank emails.... I'm guessing since I bought them on the first day that I won't be able to buy the 5 more that I'd like either. Which I'm sure will tick me off. At any rate Origin Store is worthless and I'm sick and tired of not being able to buy in bulk. I have no idea what they have against us giving them money but IMO that is NOT a way to conduct a business..... and if EA is struggling it's because they obviously do NOT want us to give them money.

    then I guess, I'm happy I had to wait for my payday to buy first time. I think you may need to contact Mesanna telling the ones who brought day one still have trouble.

    I'm sick of finding ways of working around EA's incompetence. Either they start getting things right or they don't get money.

    I just bought a copy. Now if only the EA Account Mgmt page would let me log in... must be a temporary issue this morning. I'll try back in a few hours to apply my code.

    There's really no reasonable defense at all for the Origin store.

    This is the Microsoft of computer game companies in terms of size and influence on the market.

    It's weird, I just brought 2 more, one at the time without any trouble. It was made with same login and same credit card.

    #¤@&%$£ Damn EA for making me buy 4 in all now :p I placed this resource painting in 2 houses owned of my non crafter accounts, so I could not collect the resources and did not want t move the paintings to my crafters houses. :)

    It would appear that anyone who bought early has in some way had their account 'marked' so they cannot purchase more - I suspect it's a side effect of their botched 'fix' for the problems for folks who tried buying multiples of the Collection in the first day or two on sale and received only one code.

    Don't sweat it its business as usual. I was invited to play SA beta and was given a code that was already in use. The solution on EA's end?
    I went from being PR'd as if I was a lucky winner to being talked to in a manner that suggested they couldn't wait for me to hangup.
    Thx for calling EA. We made a mistake and you get jack,time for you go........ After fifteen years of multiple account support, that was the attitude from them. Pretty eye opening really.

    I plan on buying it eventually. Not in a huge hurry and some of the trouble folks have been having makes me nervous to jump in.

    Logging into account management always seems to cause problems so I avoid it when possible.
