    I think it was last October. Beginning of the month.

    I placed a house while on the back to brit promotion.

    I recently made a trial account, to see a friends new Luna house. Since I had the trial account going, I decided to run around and see who still had houses, and poke around. I had completely forgotten I placed this house.

    Its still standing.

    As you can see, its marked CLEARLY that it was placed on a back to brit promotion account. This should have fallen months ago.

    Not really sure where I'm going with this thread. I guess I wanted to show the people who are frustrated with these types of houses that their frustrations aren't unfounded.

    The Dev team seems to just be completely incapable of taking care of these houses.

    Just a small bug. Give them some time and it will be fixed.

    it was my understanding that this bug was fixed, having "learned their lesson" from the back to brit promotion before the one i placed this house on.

    that's actually why i placed the house to begin with. to see if they actually did fix it.

    Clearly they haven't. xD

    In UO bug fix times can be counted in decades soon probably, so a few months is nothing.

    My house from one of the first return programs is also still standing and I am confident that it will stay until the servers close down.
    :p

    They probably leave these houses up so the shards don't look as empty as they truly are. xD

    In that case just reactivate account and take it down.

    That's hardly the point of the thread.
    Why should someone have to pay for another month in the game, to drop a house that is only standing because of a bug?

    UOKaiser Guest

    Because they put it there. If not then leave it. it was there choice. no one forced them to get a house. If they really want it out of the way then give EA some cash to help EA and take it down.
    Besides I doubt it was his house. If it was mines I be jumping for joy that i have another house instead of trying to get it demolished. That just would be illogical.

    Hunny, you're missing the point.

    I quit UO ages ago.

    I came back for the back to brit promo.

    At the time there was debate on whether or not the Dev's had fixed this bug.

    I placed this house to test if they actually did fix this bug or not.

    this is a follow up post, confirming they did not.

    I honestly don't care that its standing. Its just a foundation. as you can see from the screen cap.

    Why is the poster, who's clearly a 80 level elf something, bothering to post this? It's clear that its a troll and nothing more. Look how cool and modern my WoW is(and my elf mohak) and UO is trashy and lame.

    Go troll somewhere else. You placed this house just to take up space on the servers and came back to post about it, sad. Your information is pointless and if you were such a upstanding player you would send UO a email with the position of that house so it can be cleared, end of situation.

    Thanks for the update Blesh.

    This bug still costs me money, as I stated in the thread you mentioned.

    Implying they actually would clear it.. :sad4:
     
  15. First, Blesh never said anything about WoW, or any other game for that matter. Second, she never compared UO to anything. Third, blame the Devs for the fact that the house is still standing, because it's them that have failed to fix the BtB and other houses that should have fallen years ago but are still standing today, taking up server space. Lastly, chill out a bit. Your post was totally uncalled for, and is nothing more than you putting words in someone else's mouth.

    Those who appreciate that I took the time to do this, you're welcome.



    Yes I play WoW. Am I going to sit here and compare WoW to UO? No. A troll would do that. xD

    Come the next back to brit promo, I'll log on and take it down, if its still standing.

    I just wish people wouldn't get mad at me for having gone out of my way to test something for the community. :(


    here is a link to my original post in a thread about the houses.

    Blesh does play WoW she has made that fact well known to all not that anyone cares. I do have to wonder if she hates UO so bad why take the time to place a house and watch to see if it will fall then come on here and grip about how it has not when she does not even play? :lame:

    Hunny, read the original thread when i placed the house. I actually had the OP of that thread ask for an update.

    Bah wow is so much better than UO.
    Updates every few months with quests. Only a few bugs and thousands of quests.
    And here is a 13 year old game with players that cannot accept that time and technology moves on.
    How LAME is that?

    Sure you were asked to update stratics but you could have solved this issue nearly a year ago by sending UO the plot and having it delt with. Your sig would indicate that you are some type of 80 level elf playing WoW posting further deflating information about UO, thanks.

    If you really want to help send UO the sextant info and be done with it.

    Sorry if I hurt the Stratics crowd but the bolded part should have been the first thing this player did.

    I honestly have no idea who to contact. The house is on legends, tokuno homare gate. run >>>> way until you see it. If you're that passionate about it, go ahead and send in a report, and refer to this post too!

    I have no idea why you all have a vendetta towards WoW players.

    I didn't make this thread to tell you how much better WoW's customer service is. I didn't even mention WoW. Other people did.


    I will say that the attitude I've gotten in this thread makes me incredibly happy I quit UO.

    Would a mod kindly lock this thread? I think we're done here.

    Blesh, thanks for the update. I never felt you were bashing UO. You were just showing that a bug still exists, and it needs to be dealt with by the UO Devs, not the paying community.

    As for the WoW/UO topic... I have a WoW account and I play WoW. I also have 2 UO accounts. Which I also play. Sometimes people just like to come back and see what the game is like or what has changed. I find it funny that people like twoburntforyou and Picus of Napa have to hate on someone because they play another game.

    What are we? 5 year olds and if you don't have the same GI Joe or Barbie Doll you can't be in the "cool club"? Well, I'm not a 5 year old little kid who is going to hate on someone for choosing a game they enjoy playing. Her original post wasn't negative, it was just showing that BtB houses were not falling. I have seen multiple posts by PAYING customers about these houses taking good spots and not falling. So someone who doesn't play makes a post to support their complaints and you people attack them for it?

    Some sense of community we have in here. . . rolleyes::lol:

    Is it nap time for you kiddies yet?

    My point ....... as she stated above she placed this house during the back to brit thing on purpose to see if it would fall in a certain period of time. Just wondering why such the concern when you do not even play UO. Sorry I think like a adult and do not see the point of placing houses on a game because I can for free then coming back and complaining how the DEV's are not doing thier jobs on a game I have no use for or play? Who's the child here?

    /facepalm



    Is it so hard to believe that while I don't play UO, I do care?

    I won't pay for UO, for my own reasons. reasons that we wont get into here. If curiosity really gets to you, feel free to PM me and I'll tell you in a private forum.

    While I won't pay for UO, I do care about UO. I care about my friends who still play it. I keep in touch via the Legends forum. I keep in touch via instant messenger.

    I'm sorry you can't appreciate my standpoint.

    For the love of god, and all that is holy. Would a mod please please PLEASE lock this thread.

    She still has friends that play, and maybe she does still care about the game? Just because she doesn't play doesn't mean she can't be helpful to the game.

    If you think like an adult, then it explains a lot about why the world is the way it is. She never complained about anything. She was giving proof that the BtB houses were still broken. She never complained about it. Others, who actually do play the game, have been complaining about it. Now they have proof thanks to Blesh that these houses aren't falling and there needs to be a fix.

    Also, if you don't see a point to her topic to begin with why are you even bothering to reply to it? To troll? Yeah, thats acting like an adult isn't it? rolleyes:

    Since a Mod never locked my thread, like I asked them to, I'll go ahead and resurrect this thread with an update to the situation for you.

    The house still stands.

    I repeat.

    The house still stands.

    Ok. I'll dive in before it gets locked.

    Firstly thanks for posting blesh... you know these boards well enough to know that there will be one or two morons who will dive in to flame without any justification...

    Anyhoo... The point is, this is yet another bug which can't be that difficult to fix. There must be hundreds of these houses still standing across the shards. I wouldn't be surprised if ea keeps them standing to help mask how low subs are these days.

    Nice to see you posting again blesh ... Good luck in whatever game you play.

    Surprised that IDOC'ers didn't report it to CS, who could then escalate the call. I know they did on mine, because GM Spada told me so in chat.

    Since the OP asked and before the trolls come out from under the bridge, I'm going to lock this.

    The system is clearly bugged. Thanks for pointing that out.
