    As you can see, that's me in the sweet purple armor.

    That's my lantern in Avalon's hand.

    I asked the devs about fixing the online store, the response was EA hasn't fixed it even though they've asked for it themselves.

    I asked about becoming a volunteer EM, they said it is a paid position so no volunteers because of the time required.

    I asked about getting my lantern back, but Avalon played innocent. Even though I had just suggested she get a raise!

    It was a nice event, the Legends folks stayed classy. Except me maybe. I may have mentioned that Avalon was also wearing my robe from the other night and I wanted it back.

    I'll have to press my case when they come to Siege I guess :)

    So I guess that I am doomed in regards of Stygian Abyss, and if the new expansion doesn't show up on Brazil Origin store, I am also doomed.
    Man, that is so fun...

    I don't understand why you don't just jump on a vpn and use the US store

    Why would I allow credit card data flow through third party network that can or cannot be being sniffed and logged?
    And also, they have a local webstore and I see absolutely NO good reason for the items to not be available there. We never got King's Collection, for one.

    I can easily remote in on a server I rent in the US to do this, but we were promised that this issue was going to be fixed back in 2012, and it wasn't so far. So I don't do it out of principle.

    You could always get a throwaway card and put money on it specifically for purchasing the expansion packs needed. Then afterwards, throw it away or save it until next time.

    But again why should anyone have to do that? That's the whole point. Is that the stores need fixed and need to stop being selective dependent on where you live.

    And who is in control of that? EA is... and also.. what have we all learned about EA doing things for the satisfaction of its customers?

    My point is this. Yes, it has been requested and maybe they are working on it. However, you have to keep in mind that Mesanna, Kyronix, Misk, and Bleak are under the supervision of EA. What EA says goes.

    So while they are working on it, you can do one of two things:

    • Sit and wait until it happens
    • Adapt and get what you are wanting through other means.
    Yes, this game has a lot of repair work that needs to be taken care of and the DEV team is doing what they are allowed to do. All of their requests go through EA first. That's my point... if the codes aren't available where you reside in, but you REALLY want those codes... you'll find a way to get them.

    LMAO I am not laughing at you but what you said and IMHO you are %100 right about EA and the store so in your wildest imagination why would EA require UO/Broadsword to provide them with codes for their store. It just baffles me that UO/Broadsword has to provide something to a store that is totally controlled by EA. It is amazing how gullible some people are to believe that UO has anything to do with EA's store.

    I like to stab myself in the foot out of principle too - oh wait - no I don't - lol

    so does your back hurt in the section where the whip marks are from self-flaggellation? - hehe

    I'm sorry, but I just don't spend a whole lot of time punishing myself as a general rule of thumb - if there's a way to do something, that's all that matters to me - I don't care how it gets done.

    What about other players here that aren't as tech savvy as I am. They simply can't access it because they wouldn't know how.
    And Stygian Abyss is a fairly important expansion for one to enjoy most of UO.

    They had no trouble whatsoever taking down the codes in all stores around the world during the Origin Summer sale. Why do they have trouble getting all the stores matched with the US store in inventory?
    And why do I have to go out of my way to give them my money?

    If the new expansion doesn't show up at our local Origin store, I will just close my accounts and move on. Simple as that.
