Alright. Here is a for real thread. So the consensus on Stratics seems to be, no outdated "classic" UO product for active subscribers. People clearly want two clients and they want the game to stay more or less the same. People want to pay the same subscription costs, etc. I agree with that. Sounds fine. So let's leave UO alone for the paying subscribers, and let's look at a nifty alternative. I am proposing a $29.99 booster pack for the following: -A "free to play" low maintenance Pre-Age of Shadows ruleset shard. You could even run the server on the same box as a low-population shard like say, Lake Austin and just run it under different ports and connection settings. -Uses the last available "Pre-Age of Shadows" server build -Includes 1 "Advanced Character" on the F2P shard per purchase. No other advanced services available to this shard. -Allows 3 character slots instead of 5+ on the shard. -Streamlined to use the same "in-game support system" as paying subscribers if there is such a thing Logging in could be separate from existing UO subscription. *new account name etc. One time fee. Obviously the purchases would be lower, because the present UO is so much better to play. It would probably be a low traffic farming shard. However it would provide a neat alternative to those that complain for a classic shard all of the time. It would also generate some extra resources which could help Mythic achieve profit plan (something that hasn't been done for a long time). Thoughts? Again this would be a separate service from UO all together, called "UO: Classic" so existing UO players have no right to complain about it impacting their game.
