    I know they're "Vet Reward" But I honestly think they should toss that title out the window and come up with something new that will allow anyone who has played Ultima Online for at least one year to be able to obtain all of the cool REWARDS.

    I my self have some very old accounts and i'm not effected but you need to balance out the reward system to hold onto the young players. My self I would be upset if I wasn't able to equip/use a really cool item because my account is only 36 months old. Imagine how they feel when they see that message "Months until you can use this item 132! <--- LOL NO TY"

    Pretty much once a account reaches a year of age you can choose from any rewards and the number of rewards will increase the older your account becomes but will also have restrictions.

    I suggest Low End Rewards, Medium Rewards, and High End Rewards.

    Example using current vet rewards. 1-4yrs Low, 5-10 Med, 11-14.. High.

    Now even if your account is only a year old you can choose from the High End Rewards.

    1 to 3yrs - 1 Rewards per year.

    4 to 6yrs - 2 Rewards per year.[May choose only 1 High End, and 1 Med OR Low Reward]

    7 to 10yrs - 3 Rewards per year.[May choose only 1 High End, 1 Med, and 1 Low Reward]

    11 to 14yrs - 5 Rewards per year.[May choose 2 High End , 2 Med, and one Low Reward]

    I believe something like this would be fair to the new players of Ultima Online. This game is almost 15yrs old I don't see it being around for another 15yrs so you should really consider balancing the Vet Reward system.

    What your suggesting tho is taking away the reward concept of the item. The items were desiigned to give you something to strive for. OMG only 2 more months and i can get that new ethy mount!! That feeling makes you want to keep playing. I wsh they would up the number of rewards you can choose in older account ages. At least to a high enough number to get 1 of each of the new items for your age.

    But still i digress they should keep the system as it is. As the word Reward basicaly describes what its intended to do.

    Well the thing is, they are not giving new people rewards. They are giving old vets new items. 15 year rewards, 16 year rewards.. I completely agree with Kage. There should be a limit... maybe 2 or 3 years tops. Once you hit that you're capped out. Because if you start playing now, your account will never be able to ride a 10th year ethy. EVER. There is no reward to that because you will not make it there. Allow more veteran pics but keep everything in one level.

    again, the main thing is to award more people for sticking around..not the same ole people with the same ole accounts for the past 15 years. Their gift would be getting multiple reward picks.

    I just don't see EA keeping Ultima Online going another 14-15 years for the new players to get a 14 yr. vet reward. *lol*

    I see where Kage is coming from, allow younger accounts (1+ years) to obtain and use the higher end vet choices before the game dies.

    I agree w/Kage as well. Think he has a great idea there. Hope the new Producer reads this and shares his thoughts on it.
