    EA just posted plans about a Panda race for UO. I will personally quit if they do. How do you feel?

    Of course, that is what they said on the WoW forums when Pandas were first mentioned as an upcoming playable race. LOL. :)

    Oh "you're" just upset because "your" bash made you look foolish. Here is a tip, the next time you try to bash someone look over your own words.;)

    Although I can only assume it's a joke, I appreciate the confusion considering it was posted March 29th and not April 1st... Duh. :eek:

    Obvious panda joke aside, is the casino for real? I know I've run across that area ingame.

    Why does everyone think this is a joke? Here in theWest , a Panda race is viewed with ridicule but is met with glee in the Far East . Look at how many Oriental based shards there are , and how active their version of the EA stores are. UO is a growing franchise there, and may very well be the future of UO. I'm all in favor of "Pandamonium" if i expands my game's customer base.

    It's a joke because when WoW announced their new panda race all the players who didn't meet it with glee went into paroxyms of rage and threatened to quit over it - seems a common tactic amongst MMO players :)

    Hmmm, our content has been on the 'lacking' side for how many months now, and still is?
    no expansions or really anything new since when?
    Many old plans put on the back burner?
    Anniversary coming up, but Nothing special to offer?
    so... What's them Dev's been doing?
    A new race, really just a joke, or just One of several to be offered? EDIT: think 'view self as...' art is probably already there


    Panpire ...I needed a sammie anyways - customizable teeth - i want fangs

    Although I am not sure I want to be a Panda (EA will need to add another character slot...)...I do know that Grammar Police like you can be quite annoying. Especially in "Your" smug and self satisfied post.

    Here is a little quote from the locked thread about Pandas that you started...it is post #13:

    Now...it is important to note that I only do this to fully demonstrate that even you, Ivor, may make grammatical and/or spelling errors at times. I am fully aware of my foibles and errors...but you seem to wear a shiny badge of Grammar Police on your Forum Chest...particularly when YOU got fooled by EA for a "Panda Race". :eek:

    If you read that sentence from Post #13 in the previous thread, one can quickly discern that you used the word "Passed" when in fact the word that would be grammatically correct would be "Past".

    See how that works? Used in context..."EA was past the point of fooling around long ago" and "EA passed the point of fooling around long ago."

    There you have it.

    Do you own a cat? It may need some attention now...o_O

    Does anybody really think EA would publicly make fun of another competitor ... really? cheap, childish
    As folks know, things are planned many, many months in advance, how you know this wasn't planned first by UO, and leaked by a disgruntled ex-employee?

    This is the problem with companies jumping the gun on April Fool's Day... no one knows whether to take them seriously or not.

    It's an April Fool's Joke.

    It's just extremely early.

    Le. Sigh.

    copied from UO guide:
    Hibernate * A Panda can lower body temperature, slow breathing and lower metabolic rate to conserve energy.
    Pandas receive +4 Stamina Regeneration which stacks with Focus.
    Spraying * In situations of great danger, a Panda's natural ferocity will take over, granting deadly power at the cost of defenses.
    15% Damage Bonus and +3% Spell Damage Increase for each 20% health lost from maximum health (60% weapon damage bonus cap and 12% spell damage bonus cap).

    A collaborated joke, complete with numbers?

    Pandas' perma-casting of the feeblemind spell needs to be nerfed immediately.

    Dammit no one told me there would be points. This is so unfair. The dev team should really let us know if there's going to be points. I bet whoever typed "paroxyms" knew ahead of time there would be points. I bet they have you on ICQ and you are friends with them on Facebook. I'm very angry. I am going to close my 47 accounts because of this.
    Stupid points. Terrible idea.

    I voted that I don't care either way, mainly because I wouldn't want to put a damper on things for players who might enjoy this. However, my personal inner reaction to the idea of pandas in UO is.... Oh, NOOOOOOO!

    i think its about high time those lazy pandas earned their keep!
    "oh look at us, we are on the endangered list and we eat bamboo"

    nope, no free rides!

    put a collar on them and teach them to answer phones and we can put them to work at the EA call center!

    This kind of stuff happens more often than you think. Big gaming companies are all the time taking potshots at each other. They may tone it down at times, such as in financial reports, but in other times, such as gaming conferences, they take blatant jabs at their competitors.

    Last year when Battlefield and Call of Duty were going at it, the jabs got really pointed at times.

    I agree with you, but I wouldn't exactly call UO a legitimate competitor to that other game :p.

    Completely different strokes for completely different folks.
