Logged in just now to see how things are going with Ultima. Cheats, hacks, exploits, dupes ; Check. People understanding that PB was gonna help but is too late now ; Check. Cheaters running the game's income ; Check. No anti-cheat nor any word from the Team on cheating ; Check. Houses burning was just for show(and I doubt it really did anything) ; Check. IDOCs still a mess ; Check. People leaving ; Check. KR exactly at the same state from public release(except artwork) ; Check. Stygian Abyss still not out ; Check. A couple of well-known sites for cheats and such still up and running ; Check. Denial that cheats exist(admittedly people seem to start noticing) ; Check. Only Events seem to prosper( just comparatively at that) ; Check. Same old guys running Champspawns ; Check. No sense of community still ; Check. Freeshards better than production shards ; Check. People still dreaming of a retro shard ; Check. Devs not commenting on anything, being too obscure when they do ; Check. Crap HoC chat ; Check. UO-Auctions showing a real slow-down in activity ; Check. No need to list more indications this game is ruined ; Check. Waiting for Darkfall and AoC ; Check. ;P I'll see what P52 brings us but I doubt it will be anything worth mentioning. Factions fixes, that should have happened 4 years ago or something.
