    Are you serious? They are <u>fixing</u> stuff!

    I am all for the fixing of things but the game has gotten so stale we really need something to do. Anything really it could be something simple just something new to see and do is all we need right now.

    Look im not trying to be rude, im not trying to be mean, please read what im about to say objectivly...

    They are ALWAYS fixing somthing. Theres always some major thing going on. Since they first announced KR they have been flat out doing one thing or another. Seriously i dont give a [censored] about all this fixing. KR isnt ready to be released and they shouldnt have people paying them to test it for them.

    I know all the fixing isnt about KR, its about BoS, gold sinks and bla bla bla. Whatever! Seriously im angry. I want to log in and have somthing to be excited about! Bring back EMs NOW!

    If we have to wait till they dont need to be fixing stuff before we have an event, well.... im not even going to finish that.

    Once I figured out that <u>you</u> are the architect of your own experience, life (both in-game &amp; out) became a whole lot more fulfilling and a whole lot less disappointing.

    Locus of Control is a fascinating topic. [​IMG]

    If you're going to be dogmatic about self-reliance for entertainment, why would people be paying a company at all? Obviously on some level they are aiding the experience and I don't think it's unfair to be a little demanding from time to time.

    Im paying $12usd a month for somthing thats entertaining.... sorry if you dont like hearing other peoples opinions. Sorry but i just cant stand people who think that anyone who doesnt completley agree with their point of view are wrong.

    I dont think your wrong Nico, you just have a different opinion. But the fact that you think im wrong because i dont agree with you....

    I asked an open-ended question. There isn't actually a right or wrong answer. Rather than a defensive response, I'd hoped it might generate some lively discussion.
     
  14. 1. There does indeed appear to be an event in the works. See this thread.

    2. While I do not agree that fixing things should come before new content every time, I do appreciate that they are fixing things.

    So, umm.....If they keep on playing it smart we can indeed have it both ways.

    Now it's on us to appreciate having it both ways. Lest we discourage them.

    My solution to uo boredom....log out of your accounts and walk away from the computer.

    I've always found that short breaks of a few days to a week or two help to reinterest me in uo when it starts to get boring.

    I pay a monthly fee for someone else to do that. They fail.

    Fixing bugs is not something I pay for.

    It seems to me the reasoning is simple. UO fails to provide the content it should. It needs to step it up. Enough excuses for poor content already.

    We've been told something is about to happen

    We can see on Test, in Moonglow, something is starting to happen

    Can you not be patient just a little while longer?

    Ummm.... I just came from looking at Moonglow on both Trammel and Felucca on the Test Shard and, as of right now, there isn't anything where that construction used to be; not even a hole in the ground.

    The radar map still shows what looks like a hole in the ground but, using 2D anyway, there is nothing but grass.

    Nico is absolutely right here.

    I'd take the fixes over pixel crack any day of the year. I'd gladly not see any new items or events for a year, if it meant that the bugs were fixed and we had a strong base to build the game on.

    You can make your own fun events in UO if you're bored. Much as I've dabbled in the odd EA event and scenario, I feel the players themselves are better at creating events for their specific shard and guild. Give me old school RP over pixel crack spawns any day lol.

    I think one of the current issues is that not only does UO currently have a skeleton crew it FEELS painfully obvious they have a skeleton crew.

    It didn't help that the much hyped 'event' by the Dev Team in Feb not only failed miserably it lasted all of 10 minutes on each shard. Seriously, the team did good lately by the mass 'burnings' but overall they ru n the game like complete and utter amateurs, and there really is no excuse for such notions in what they get PAID to do.

    I am a subscriber of two onlines currently, but a total of seven given my past. Why is UO the only one of these who consistently pulls such unprofessional things?

    Maybe you just need some Preparation H or something. [​IMG]

    There have been more bug fixes in the past couple of months than there have been in the past couple of years. I'd say they've been doing more since the move than before.


    "Why is UO the only one of these who consistently pulls such unprofessional things? "

    If that's the case, and UO and the people that are running it are so terrible, why is it one of the 2 out of 7 that you still subscribe to? [​IMG]

    I have one account left out of an original 4. Like many others, I keep my account due to housing and hope... hope that one day the UO team will get its head straight and shape up the game.

    See, I'm not the kind of person that just takes things and accepts it. I'm not some retired person with way too much free time to fiddle around with things , you know? Like many others, I have a job, an active social life outside of UO, and when I _do_ spend time to enjoy a game... be it UO or anything else... I expect a certain amount of quality. I don't think my expectations are too terribly high, but that's just me.

    True.

    They have fixed many stuff and i liked it, but i dont want to pay for fixes or servers.
    I want to pay devs for the effort they have to create an interesting world.
    Chocolade and the items you got at val. day were fun but nothing more then salt or pepper in UO.
    Its time for real meat!
    Jesters, entertain me!!
