    Aww but the town halls are so fun... The devs should definitely use more money on the game though.

    And by the way, triple posting = bad... [​IMG]

    Our money pays for numerous things you'd probably not approve of, but that doesn't make them any less necessary. If the only customer contact EA got was through UHall I dread to think what game we'd have now.

    I guess it's true, no matter what EA folks do, there is always someone on UHall who can find some complaint about it.

    This is from the marketing fund. If they don't spend it then it does not mean the money can go towards hiring another developer. EA might have a system where if you don't spend the money you get less later on. So better to spend it then not.

    Wake up? You can't gather your thoughts to post your ideas in a single post? What gives? You're wasting energy as every post has unnecessary refreshes and data transfer. What are you doing wasting the coal and oil required for that energy and contributing to the global warming. Seriously, global warming is an issue but lets be realistic here. You could eliminate computer games entirely and make people take up bike riding as a hobby which would help with global warming too, but are you willing to do that? The town hall I did attend was fun. It's nice to see face to face the other players you play this game with. So get over yourself.

    Noble sentiment indeed.

    I am curious though as to what type of alternate fuel/solar vehicle you own?

    Or do you peddle a bicycle to work/school daily, mr. environment hero?

    I can also assume that ALL of the heat in your home/trailer-home is provided by wood/solar panels?

    Please enlighten me.

    I read this thread, when if was only a few posts (I beleive 5 of them were yours). I figured it was a mostly meaningless thread, that would drop off the bottom of Uhall.
    Oh, how wrong was I?

    Is this nut job serious? I don't post very much (if at all) but good god, this guy's a nightmare. Look jerky, every generation, just as in a job you do or anything else that happens in life, PEOPLE ADAPT AND MOVE ON. Get a damn life, quit preaching, and for the love of all people of the world's sanity, if you are a eco-nut, do us all the best thing YOU could do to prevent global warming: suck on all the tail pipes of cars while they are running. THAT'LL cut down on fossil fueled warming, don't you think?

    Let us play our silly game and be happy with what we have. You don't like? Get more involved in policy making and I bet the start of it is NOT in UO UHall.

    "...why are these meetings necessary?"




    So the brokers and UO gold sellers (and other 3rd parties who desire to earn their living through playing a game) can meet the devs and get friendly with them and have less chance of being banned if they get caught scripting or duping or hacking accounts?


    For some who wish to earn money off UO meeting UO staff at these townhalls gets them a blurb in FoF.

    Their ingame "event" gets written up by an EA staff member on Stratics which will lead SOME people to assume that it is safe to trust these other "players" ingame.


    That's false advertising because of course it's not 'safe' to trust other players (especially those who stand to earn a monetary profit irl) ingame.


    So while these meetings probably are fun for a few players, they are business meetings to others, and probably do more harm than good to UO (considering that most people who sell UO for real cash have been caught cheating at some point in the past 10 years).



    Come on now, the UO devs are human beings after all. Wouldn't YOU UNban your best friend from a townhall meeting if they got caught cheating got banned and then emailed you swearing their innocence?

    There is nothing about my post that so much as suggests that I don't care or disagree that we are running out of oil.

    You're the one that implied that there could be such a thing as "necessary" global warming.

    I also have an odd feeling that if no Town Halls were announced, you'd be whining about that too.

    You can't possibly be so dumb as to think that whatever plane the devs take to wherever would be grounded if they didn't take it. The plane is gonna fly anyway, I assure you. Somehow I don't think there's a UO Devs Private Jet.

    OMG! The devs are trying to destroy the planet by having Town Hall Events!!! Nooooooo!!!! Run for the hills!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I said run because driving your car uses the oil which is bad for the earth and then we all die, I learned this from a thread on the internet, yay!

    And here I thought the thread would be about that Town Hall events were a waste of time and their time / money would be better suited to doing actual marketing of the game instead. Silly me.
