    1 simple question?
    can we reactivate an ACC one day before, or on the same day, when the gifts go life ????

    (and a spoiler post would also be nice, for all who dont like to know, they should not read it )
    :) thx

    Why do you have to bash the Dev's? Can't you simply just ask a question?

    You also need to understand the Dev's don't frequent these boards. They pop in every once in awhile, but they are actually working; not browsing the internet.

    If you want an answer to a question, submit it for the FoF, call customer service, or PM Joanne, the community rep.

    I think they already posted info on the characters needing to be a certain # of days old. Since they never really post an exact date/time for distributing gifts, or even if they do... there are often last minute snags that lead to delays you might want to build a little leeway in and activate a few days before.

    From my experience with housing issues, it's the individual character's age, not the account age that is taken into account for certain functions. In other words, I've had a re-activated vet account create a new char that could not accept a house, however a previously established character on that same account could take the house.

    Will this work the same for gifts? I don't know... but you would be better off sending the question directly to EA rather than posting it here.

    Safe Travels, Sam

    Char. we talk here about are 80 X 30 day´s old.
    it´s the 3rd time i asked this question.should be a simple answer possible.

    Um, I'm not getting your payments so if you decide to not reactivate that's fine with me. If you've been posting the questions here... you're posting in the wrong place. EA has a website and you can submit questions to them directly.

    www.support.ea.com

    Now... if you decide you want to start sending me monthly payments I'll be glad to submit the question for you. :scholar:

    Sorry to break the news to you but the Dev's aren't required to answer every question or every topic that starts with "ZOMG DEVZ PLZ ANSWER!!!!11".

    I will say that in the past I have reactivated an account during the time gifts were being given out and I did receive them on all characters that were created before the account went inactive.

    and i reactivatd accounts last year a couple of days before gifts came out, and got NO gifts on this accounts, so, i dont do it again this year.

    I have done this many times. The chars simply have to be 30 days old at any point during the time frame of gifts. You can open the account after the gifts have started and as long as the chars is 30 days old before the gift period ends you will get the gifts at log in. I usually wait till I get the gifts on my other accounts before I decide to re-open my closed accounts.

    Did it occur to you that the gifts are REWARDS FOR LOYAL CUSTOMERS?

    You don't deserve the gifts if you just activate accounts for a few days to get them.

    So, I guess in trying to be tricky and get gifts you don't deserve... you only cheat yourself? Hmmm? That's kinda funny actually. Now send me that $$ you were gonna give to EA and I'll just set aside some gifts from my multiple Veteran accounts and give em to you. Okay?

    Heck, usually a few days after a massive "gift dump" folks are leaving them on the ground anyway so why worry about it. (But you can still pay me if you want to.)

    yep, thats the same what i did last year, but had poor luck with this,NO gifts on other acc. :(
    that´s why i asked

    a good deal better, i closed 2 houses completly, only 1 castle left, and i reopen acc. only for castle holding, pereodicly. :)
    No extra mo´ atm. for the reborn kingdom, you know.
    i do it like most player do these day´s.
    maybe the time will come that even the castle cant hold me longer.
    who know´s
    maybe then you as an Loyal customer feel a little bit better :)

    Well, I'd feel better if you were in game, having fun! And it seems awful risky "toggling" your account to refresh your castle. There was a post from some poor lad on Atlantic just the other day who didn't refresh in time and lost a castle!

    I would be happy to let you transfer it to one of my continually maintained accounts, for safekeeping! I'd even give you all the xmas gifts from the "castle holder" account! Heck, I'll toss in some stuffy animals too!

    There, killed two birds with one stone. Now, where should I meet you to take that pesky castle off you hands and to deliver your xmas gifts? :D

    chars have to be 30 days old to receive the gifts. i would imagine if you reactivate an older account that has existing chars on it (older than 30 days) that they'd get the gifts in their pack as long as you reactivate between the start of gift giving (pub 57) and the end of gift giving (jan 19, 2009).

    did you page a GM last year when you reactivated your account(s) and your older-than-30-days chars still didn't get their gifts? (not saying that would have helped, given how "helpful" gm's tend to be, but still...)

    Nice Orcish grammar, Der Rock. :)

    Read the website. Your question was answered on Friday. This may be the reason the devs haven't been at your beck and call. They also have jobs, and our community rep is a part-time fill-in who doesn't spend much time, well, in the community.

    it is "denglish" not orcish ;)

    i can read,it is not a answer to my question, maybe YOU dont understand.

    Der, according to the context of the explanation--which I quoted above--the 30-day window pertains to the age of your character(s), NOT to the age of your account or your most recent active billing cycle.

    Edit

    In other words, according to the official website, yes, you will be able to reactivate your account and log in to the game to receive your gifts this year-- up to and including January 19, 2009.

    Whether or not the official website is entirely correct, some might say, is a matter for debate. Personally, I suggest erring on the side of caution, or at the very least, paranoia.

    Is there not one other person that thinks that anyone who is timing account activation for the SOLE purpose of gaining the usual craptacular x-mas gifts is kinda sad?

    To each his own ofc but wouldnt you hope that the Dev's would maybe prioritize questions and answer ones concerning ACTIVE accounts first?
    Contrary to the belief of all the Doombringing semi-inactive players, Uo is ok and in no way do the Dev's need to be begging malcontents to reactivate accounts for only 1 month.

    I realize that the OP also has active accounts but lets please concentrate on those maybe?

    Peace :)

    Oh, I think we can count on the devs not to prioritize almost any thread (and understandably so), let alone a thread like this. :)

    What you call "doombringing semi -inactive player" are in real those player who make it possible that YOU still can play this games.
    think about ,can you imagine HOW many player still pay every 2-3 month only for housholding??
    the question is "who is in real egoistic" ???

    To read, or not to read!

    That, my friends and colleagues, is the question!

    Come on, that's like, what if I put a Mug Rootbeer in front of you and said, "Hey, if you don't like it, then DON'T DRINK IT." But of course you'd drink it. It's Mug.

    Edit

    I will not look at your titel. (The nerve!)

    1) Almost all players that are paying for householding accounts are at the same time actively playing other accounts. They are not the malcontent players I spoke about so what are you trying to say again?

    2) Even taking into consideration your considerable language difficulties I find it hard to follow the tiny bit of logic your posts contain :(

    3) Btw, do you need another half dozen or so replies pointing you to the EXACT link that explains what you need to know? Assuming you even have a clue about the supposed timing of your accounts 12 months ago do you not think that maybe you just blew it last year?
    But who am I to assume that? Really the Dev's should just put the brakes on everything else so that they can personally explain this to you. :)

    Peace

    i see you cant count ?????
    thatfore we have 30k player and NOT 100k, and therefore we have a sceleton crew

    ah,btw. when was the last time you boycotted EA total??

    YOUR POST:....I am returning to EA, after boycotting the company because of their mismanagement of .........

    thats your words ?????
    i would say touch your own nose first before ranting other people ;)
    i never boycotted 100%, so be happy that UO is still there after your returning.

    sheesh... people...

    1) the devs don't LIKE you
    2) it's the 3rd time he's asked and gotten no answer
    3) somebody in authority (not necessarily a dev) should be REQUIRED to answer our questions
    4) questions should be respectful and you should try all options before coming here and making a rude post about devs
    5) rewards aren't for loyal players, they are for payers who have had their account open for 1 month
    6) this is old news. the answer is: YOU WILLL NOT GET A REWARD UNLESS YOUR ACCOUNT/CHARACTER HAS BEEN ACTIVE FOR AT LEAST 1 MONTH.
    7) waving your fist and yelling "i r 2 b close teh sccountz!" doesn't scare anybody
    8) your question has been answered. stop talking
    9) read #10
    10) read #9



    now, i don't want to hear another word from you unless you can give a good answer to the following:

    "This sentence is false."

    you cant hear me, thats for sure :)
     
  31. :bowdown: Yupperz, u iz right!

    Activate your account(s), Der Rock ... any character at least 30 days old should get the gifts. If not, file through the EA support site to get them.

    Is it possible that the characters not receiving gifts last year were less than 30 days old? As I recall a few folks sort of missed that little qualifier to getting them. However the 30-days-or-older requirement has been around for a very long time - for lots of special items.
     
  32. Der Rock

    Der Rock Guest

    :)
    problem is:
    i recieved the gtc codes these day´s, so i dont want the same misery as last year,i am under the 30 day gift release date(expecting them in the next 10 days)
    (on all my accounts there is no "new"character , so all are many years old)
    the 30 day character age is NOT a question
    (some poster here dont understand that)
    if it is impossible for the other accounts to get the gift ,then i hold the codes back for next year to reopening the castle account.
    ;)

    Der Rock, if you don't even PLAY the rest of the year, why do you care about getting the gifts?

    This doesn't even strike me as greed per se... "ghetto" would seem to be a more fitting term.

    OGMGMMGMGGMG SUMFTHING 4 FFEREEEZZZZ GIVE.
     
  35. Since it hasn't been said that I can see, I note that sometimes when you first log on, you don't get the gifts. You have to run your characters to the bank and even then sometimes you have to log out and then log back in. Maybe this is what happened to you last year.
     
  36. Der Rock

    Der Rock Guest

    yes, you are right, ITEMS, i love items
    sometimes if the items are worthy, then i do shard trading also, i have still 150 soulstone tokens and this green tokens (cant remember the name)
    items,castle and events(not all) are the only thing that hold me here.

    you dont like it? not my problem.

    True. But you look ridiculous complaining that you can't accurately activate your account for just a couple of days and be guaranteed to get free reward gifts from EA.

    There have been numerous mentions about how the holiday system works. If your questions haven't been answered from them, then I doubt they will get answered. I feel that this topic doesn't merit a dev's response.

    If I really wanted a chance at extra gifts, then I would have re-opened my closed accounts for that opportunity. If I wasn't sure if they would be 'worth it' then I would wait til they were release. Either way, I wouldn't demand a developer's response for something so trivial. Either re-open your account(s) or don't.
