    Had to send my computer in for repairs...and thus ahd to hook up the old computer

    Of the 10-15 UO related links in my favorites from this computer it looks like only 2-3 are active anymore :( with Stratics and the HOT forums from Atlantic the only main ones even visited anymore.

    Is this a sign that UO has become so outdated that these sites have dropped off or just a natural evolution for people from one site to the next??

    I think its so outdated TBH, over 12 years, thats a good run. Still a good game, but a lot of people like the flashy 3d stuff.

    It's not even just the 3d stuff. The 2d client is just bloated and bleh. Nowadays you should be able to play UO through a browser window, but instead it chugs on even some pretty decent machines at times and takes an afternoon to install.

    I hate to suggest it after so many failed attempts, but they need to make a good client. Put in some basic scripting, remove the need for UOA or whatever else the nogoodnicks are using, and streamline it to do what it needs to do quickly. Running through busy places should never get choppy in 2D.

    Random misplaced rant over.
