    What's up devs? Anyone over there still alive?

    (If any Stratics posters find themselves in the Fairfax area can you stop by and make sure they are ok?)

    They did try to find new people....

    If they only found a German, then he probably went Blitzkrieg on their asses.
    If they found a German and a French person, their offices are probably still sealed by the authorities for the fallout that happens when you put those two nationalities in the same room.

    As a bonus, I actually am German. So I can make those kinda quips :D

    2 posts from Grim Omen today that I saw. Someone's there!

    Historically, stretches of silence usually mean there's something interesting in the works. Given hints on the next few publishes, I'd say they are busy with EC fixes and Factions revamp.
     
  6. That's only because Grim is practicing his people skills to apply for the new Customer Support Rep job at Mythic... :thumbsup:

    lol that would mean he was wasting his time as since when did we have a customer support rep with good people skills. As fair as people skills wilki was the best he told it like he saw it. Current set of people skills being practiced is lets tell than after we did it. guantee this publish will appear on test maybe on a friday or may 27th and then origan the next friday or father day weekend and at a undeclosed server up the rest of the shards. origan will find out with a ingame msg saying shard will be going down in 5 minutes. Also there is a fifty fifty chance that any notes will be provided before test comes back up. My guess will be over the memorial holidays to test so that they do not have to listen to our whinning for 4 days. so might be to test may 27th

    What of the broken gypsy camps, unfinished Ricardo quest, and unnamed cloak and talisman?
    And where are the Grim Omen posts? I checked the "UO Developer Feed" but came up empty. Nevermind I found them.... still feel like I came up empty though.

    They implemented the anti-cheat system and they found out half the dev team used illegal 3rd party tools and they were autobanned from the game, hehehe.

    Its the way it's been for a long time.... don't know why you are complaining.....

    They don't communicate unless people ***** and then it's just one line here or there... since the loss of the FoF we havn't had squat for communication....

    They only get off their duff when the boards start filling with angry protest... that last's about one week.... then it's back to the deafening silence such as it is now...

    I grow tired of the waiting.....


    Patience Cal..... I don't have. Where is the communication????

    Where is the news of the next publish???

    When are we going to see some new fixes?

    The "ask the devs" forum was supposed to be a FoF replacement of sorts...
    I asked a question about why we can't be co-owned to more than one house.
    I asked a question about why co-ownership doesn't work like a ban and co-own the whole account.
    I know I'm not the only one asking questions.
    Maybe it's all just TOP SEEKRIT stuff...

    Wait.. Why are we surprised by the lack of communication? Hasn't this been the Mythic SOP since SA was introduced?

    Long stretches of silence punctuated by a flurry of spin doctoring and vapid fluff posts.

    The P(l)ayers all love UO despite its many faults, I think it’s time the Dev Team give the people who allow them to eat some love...and customer service.

    AoC - zzzzz
    MO - lol Yeah, no hope in the hot place for that MMO, but we will see...
    Darkfail - bahahaha

    I'd like some updates as well, but meh... I am not too worried.

    There is a lot being worked on I imagine though. Bard changes, EC fixes, hacking fixes, and the Ricardo quest line. I couldn't care less about the no named items, that probably an easy fix... What I would like is for the event to progress.

    I would love to see another event like the shadow lords. At least the Vanguards gave a nice change of pace for hunting...

    Would like to see the rest of Ter Mur opened up, and if I was being REALLY hopeful, I would LOVE to see Malas opened up for castle/keep placement. haha Yeah, wishful I know. :p

    No news is good news.
    If they don't communicate, it usually means they're busy with the next publish/event.

    Logrus has a few recent posts in the bard forum and I've seen a few developer posts on the Test Center forum. Things still seem to be very quiet though. Players have been begging for some attention to throwing on the Test Center forum and haven't received a single response. The new items are for sale on uogamecodes, yet there wasn't even an announcement. We need a client patch to fix the new cloak and talisman, yet there's no word on when that will happen. What's going on around here?
