SA, Not a single post from EA this year, Why?

Discussion in 'UHall' started by Guest, Apr 9, 2008.

    Hail: After going thru 25 pages of all post by ea members, and the SA forum, i gave up looking. There are lot's of post from Stratics people, and the players, but None from EA for this entire year. I mean, Zip, Nada, Zero...........

    There are tons of post on Pet Ball changes, cure, and other stuff, "over 500 post by ea" but not one on SA. WHY? No one expects dail updates. or weekly updates, BUT 4+ Months is a long time to be completely silent on the expansion that is suppost to revive the game.

    Why does a rep answer a question about everything else almost, and not SA?

    Unfortunately, there's a lot of conflicting needs between design, development, testing, marketing, etc. What this means is there are still some things we are not ready to talk about it. Yes it's April now and I'm still saying that, you did not hear me wrong. (again, my bolding)

    I would guess that would be because its:

    a) It's being changed so its not KR only.

    or

    b) It's been canned, and they are taking whatever resources were worth salvaging and finding a way to work them into the game.

    That would be my guess.

    Move along, nothing to see here
     
  5. The more they wait the harder it is going to be to sell..AOC , WAR , WOW (expansion), ect.... all coming out soon..2007 was I think UO's best shot , unless they got something major planned ( bigger than UOKR).

    They should at least release a new box into stores this year with some deco items and various tokens, just like the 9th anniversary box.

    The no. 1 rule in the gaming industry (commonly used by Blizzard): only release when it's done.
    I am damn glad they didn't rush the project through, just for pecuniary reasons.

Give me one good reason they won't mention it. They won't even give you the "we are working on SA but it still is going to be awhile until it's released" mumbo-jumbo. It's been canned, the sooner you accept it the better.

    lol i dunno if you're being sarcastic or not but it really is a waste of money just to pay for a box to get some extra items... they need a new expansion that adds something like a second felucca or whatever... something big like how aos changed everything, do something like that again...

    c) They have no idea what they are doing with it yet, and the higher-ups at Mythic are focusing on WHO being finished, while letting the UO people have their way with UO for the moment.

    ummm... no

    They already invested a lot of resources into developing assets and doing design work for SA. They aren't going to can it unless they are also canning UO. It's just horribly delayed because it's KR only and KR wasn't nearly as widely accepted as the devs had anticipated.

    I think SA is still going to come. It just might take a while for it to get here.

    Just a reminder, a few years ago there was the next great project called, UO-2, and a lot of time and resources were put into that. Also, a lot of time and resources were put into the 3D client. But most importantly, there is NO responce at all from EA.
    _____________Sample Responces________________________

    SA is coming along nicely, we are getting close.
    SA is coming along little by little, it will be delayed just a bit
    SA is currently in internal final testing
    SA is being worked on, but delayed until the KR client is totaly finished
    SA will be done when we damn well want it to be, so there....

    I don't know a lot, but i do know this. Sometimes saying nothing at all, is worse than saying something, even if it is vague. Hell, even UO-2 had screenshots, and a trailor released, and it was a lot farther away from potential release than SA is now?

    Sure, it might mean they're also canning UO, but then... that wouldn't come as a shock to me.

    Because I'm not paying to play DAoC or WHO. I'm paying for Ultima Online.

    If my dollars aren't going to help keep the game I'm interested in playing alive, running, and frequently updated, then they don't need my dollars, because I don't plan on subscribing to any other EA online games, SPECIFICALLY because of how they've handled UO.

  37. What they need to do is make a new dungeon IE (SA) , where certain high end monsters only exist and certain high end loot only exists. But this dungeon (which should be very large, larger then doom and more dangerous) uses the felucca rule set.
