    for years many of us have complained asked, moaned and groaned for so many things in this game and once again are ignore and you guys do stuff to treasure chests?

    no offense to thunters out there sure they needed to beef up the loot but i cant think of a 100 things way more more important that need done than that. its on goin years after year pub after pub.

    between banned people and people who have quit i cant imagine how this effects them on looking into rejoining our community. cause all we ever get is stuff we cant do on any facet just one or just with blues or whatever and nothing for everyone.

    this is not a rant i been away a couple months and this is nuts man.

    Thus far I think the content that has been added has been great and I hope they continue to add more. I would have liked to have seen a unique deco items such as Fishing has the Seahorse Statuette and Ghost Anchor. I was really hoping for something along those lines...

    The Boost to T-Maps was needed and I for one am glad for something was done. That was definately not time wasted.

    UO is great but agree there are alot of things that need improvement and could use some love.

    I doubt many of us could agree on what should take priority.

    I for one would like to see high res UO come to fruition or some enhancement of graphics..or just give me the option for UOKR graphics.:thumbup1:

    So your complaint is that devs have listened and got around to fixing something that has been crap and ignored since AoS? Your complaint is not only have they included an item to knock off counts but fixed an incredibly outdated and useless skill and finally made it relevant to the current times?

    I would think that this is a great sign that they are aware of what needs changing and that they listen to the players. But hey, guess not everyone can appreciate the fact that they are making good changes and upgrades to different aspects of the game. May not be significant to you but it definitely is for many other players.

    Well, apparently, from the first reports from chests also level 6, it still appears that the actual items are still referred to as "junk"........

    Sure, some new things have been added, scarce imbuing ingredients (so we can say they are there, afterall...), forged pardons and a few brittle items but in the end, the armor and weapons, the "loot" which players perceive as the core of the treasure cache has been, is and apparently still will be seen as a "chest full of junk"......

    So, after the initial hype for the new stuff my expectation is that we will still hear complaints of chests being full of junk loot as we have been over these years.

    Yes, rare 6 modifiers items have been reported but the problem is that they will be hardly imbuable to help and most likely the mix of modifiers will not be well assorted for the needs.

    There should have been at least in high level chests some better chance at items with high modifiers. Unless this chance is there but VERY rare and not yet been discovered, my current concern is that I will keep reading about players lamenting of the treasure chest loot as being "junk"..........

    And of course, I have a big regret, the lack for ML ingredients in Treasure Chests, a lost chance, IMHO.

    Im one that likes to do most things in UO . Most people I meet are the same, we dont complaint here , we do what is fun for the moment and test new things out. (This doesnt help the devs nor make them discouraged , its just how we are) Almost none has been t-hunting for ages. Last time was pre SA to collect junk for upcoming imbuing training. Now lots of people look forward to do it again. My T-hunter has been dusted off and put in a brand new armor with more mana as she might try out the bard masterys as well!

    Thanks to the devs for listening:thumbup1:
     
  7. They just put in upgrades to the long-ignored bard class with the masteries and now they are overhauling the treasure maps for the treasure hunters out there.

    So that's two recent publishes where the devs have responded to two groups of players who have asked for some love for awhile. Seems like progress to me, and I hope they can keep it up.

    I really hope this is on the radar. The Enhanced Client is great, and if they just upgraded the graphics (or "downgraded" to the high-res UOKR graphics, which they never should have taken away) the game would be better than ever.

    LOL nice rant. Oh it is a rant, because there is nothing constructive about it. You only vaguely touch on what else you wanted to see.

    I'm glad they've finally given Treasure Hunting some love. About time to be honest.

    And if you've read the patch notes you'll notice extra incentives to do maps for Felucca with SOTs in them.

    Obviously this is also good for me, playing on Siege, as I'll get extra stuff to use and to give to my friends.

    They are always going to do what is easiest to code.

    UO has been on life support for as long as I've known of its existence. (last 4 years ish)


    PS - I'm still waiting on them to do something that makes me want to come back.

    Life support? As in maintenance mode?

    You mean there has been no updates, patches, extra content, bug fixes, events, story arcs, new clients all these last 4 years?

    Damn, could have fooled me :D

    While I agree certain aspects have been neglected and taking a bit long in coming, however, I believe the succession of dev teams have been doing all they can amongst the multitude of things that needed attention, prioritizing stuff that has the largest impact (measured against effort required).

    And all these were done during the global financial crisis, several relocations, layoffs, restructuring, merger, replacement of entire uo teams etc

    If you recall, during this same period, several MMOs did go into maintenance mode and some were even cancelled.

    So, nope, I don't think UO was on life support these last 4 years.
     
  13. Don't you just LOVE rants that end with, "This is not a rant!"

    Further proof that no matter what you do, no matter how wonderful it is, someone is going to complain. For me, I am looking forward to actually using my t-hunter for the first time in years. :)
     
  16. Exactly. I've got friends in the guild alliance who want to do them with me also. It's been 2 or 3 years since the guild was interested.

    Now... speaking about those fishing updates...

    I agree with you, but theres no way to fix this really.

    Something will suck, so people will say "Hey, this sucks." Eventually, maybe they will fix it. Then, someone else will complain about them fixing it.

    It's like what popps is saying. He's saying this loot still sucks. Of course the loot still sucks. If it didn't then there would be an incredible cry about how treasure hunting would unbalance the game. Then, there would be a series of nerfs til it sucked again.

    The secret to uo is diversity. Play ALL the chars, then when something is in vogue play that. When it gets nerfed (and it will), then just play whatever the new thing is. Something will always be overpowered, and it will always get nerfed.

    The secret to life is to try and be happy no matter what is happening around you.

    Yeah, there's hundreds of other things they could have done, instead of revamping treasure chests.
    Thing is, if they'd done one of those things, then there'd still be hundreds of things they could have done instead.

    "More important" is a subjective assessment.
    Right now, I'm hungry, so "making me a sammich" strikes me as a more important thing they could have spent their time doing.

    Maybe i used the wrong turn of phrase. Let me clarify.

    By life support, i mean that the devs fix only minimal problems to attempt to prevent customers from walking away.

    In the 2 years i played (i'm two years retired and hoping to see the dev team turn over a new leaf) i remember A LOT of pixel crack, and not a lot of actual content.

    an update of pixel crack isnt content. its crack. I'm a recovering addict. ;)

    And to be fair, i admit there were some great moments in UO for me. Magincia, while full of pixel crack, was a fun event.

    turning on ToT for the 3rd time, however, is not.

    ::shrugs::

    see this is why i dont post often. I have such an ill opinion of UO that i really have nothing positive to say.

    and frankly, UO's player base's ability to put up with this crap scares me. xD

    I'm gonna wonder away from this thread now. have fun!

    I am totally amazed at how cavalierly you can dismiss the biggest, most involved expansion the game has had in years as 'not a lot of content'. Are you sure we're talking about the same game?
