    I debated about pasting this article up. It's really good and some may read it and not like it, while others will but over all I feel its a great read.

    The way I look at it that Massively at least, dedicates articles about UO while other gaming sites features newer games.

    "Currently on my shard, a fellow is roleplaying an authoritarian governor and the city of Britain is in turmoil, complete with torches and pitchforks (no, really, the bank was covered in torches this morning)."

    The worst part about the article was the client used. Yech.

    Nice to see you are on the right topic and game this time Aran :)

    One issue with UO there are 2 clients to choose from but it also gives players a choice on which cient they would prefer. New players have to choose between the 2 client before they even have to step into a huge learning curve of UO. That is an issue itself for a newbie. Some prefer the EC while others prefer the CC but it's still UO.

    I really liked the scrapped KR client and it had old feel but looked so much better than the CC imo. Thats just it. It's my opinion.

    I prefer the EC when crafting but when I play with a PVP guild on Baja, they insist I use UOAM so I'm stuck in CC. Dang, I carry a lot of junk! :D

    Insert the old .mul files and edit the maps..google it. You can still get UOAM to work..not sure about UOAM server or the map follow for guilds..but I wish it would cause Cart sucks!

    ..oh side note..you need to reconfigure at every patch!

    The team tracking is HORRENDOUS! You could be standing on top of each other and your dots are in 3 different places..

    Hahaha, sure it is. Which is why I'm looking for a piece of abandoned, outdated software instead.
