    Russian Ultima Online players making protest to Electronic Arts company. In new Stygian Abyss client developers forgot fix important issue with cyrillic input from keyboard. For this reason, the Russian-speaking players (and all slavs) can't normally communicate with among themselves (not all our players well know english). We strongly ask to fix this issue!

    Eh, at this moment the 2D client is a bit better for playing.

    Well,that comment was not at all helpful.

    To the OP: The EC still is beta (very much so), and we're all waiting desperately for some fixes. However, nobody knows what EA plans with the Enhanced Client. Let's keep our fingers crossed.

    Не беспокойтесь - сохранить методом 2D. 3D это ужасно!

    Have no idea if this is a serious post or not...
     
  7. I think you meant, Enhanced Client... there is no 3D client. And even with all the bugs, the EC is still better than the outdated 2D graphics.

    To be fair, most of the European languages are not supported.

    Ofc russia is a big market by population, but how big market it is when it comes to people who actually could play this? Meaning having access to decent connection, having a decent computer and having the extra money to pay monthly fee. Yes I know there's a lot of Very Rich people in Russia (I live in Finland, we see lots of them here). But the main population hasnt gotten their share of that oilmoney that well...

    Psst.. many Slavic languages don't use cyrilic alphabet (like Czech, Slovak, Polish, etc.).
    Salut ;)

    The Cyrillic (pronounced /sɨˈrɪlɪk/) script writing system is an alphabet developed in the First Bulgarian Empire in 9th century[1], and used in the Slavic national languages of Russian, Bulgarian, Belarusian, Rusyn, Serbian, Macedonian, and Ukrainian, and in the non-Slavic languages of Moldovan, Kazakh, Uzbek, Kyrgyz, Tajik, Tuvan, and Mongolian. It also was used in (past) languages of Eastern Europe, the Caucasus, and Siberia.

    from wikipedia

    Not supporting cyrillic gives Russian kids a great chance to improve their English while they play UO. Learning and fiun at the same time, a win-win situation!

    I know what cyrillic is, I was just pointing to this part of your original post:
    Some Slavic languages use latin alphabet with some adjustments.

    Nice smoking of the EC Crack, given that the EC runs on the 2D graphics, and that the method in which they are displayed makes them more fuzzy and pixelated than they appear in the 2D client.

    But hey, nothing like drinking the kool-aid and waving the pompoms, right?
