    I just went to GL to check LBT's Castle - and trying to find out how to get his replica Throne.
    At the entrance to the Castle there is this - whats this? Nothing happens on clicking:

    gl.JPG

    So my question is:
    - Will you have to attend at the Coronation Event on your shard to be able to get the gift
    - Will you only get one per char?
    - IF you cant make it, there will be no other possibility to get it (the next day for example?)

    Please explain so i can at least setup my 4 accounts to get that Deed's for my guildmates who cant make it tonight (IF there is an Event on Pacific anyway since it hasn't ben announced yet here!)

    Txs in advance for your answers

    It is just like every other clicky at an event. You can click it once per character.

    Sorry Sir, I didn't try, so that I don't know, but since it is the EM hide-away, I am going to assume no. But could be wrong.

    You can't cast any spells at all in Blackthorn's castle. So I assume you can't mark at the collection point.

    Excuse me Sir, not sure why you are so angry.
    I am just collecting everything together so everyone might have a chance to get the gift or several of them, especially if he wants to make sure, he can get extra ones for his friends who are not able to attend that event..whats so bad about this? Not everybody has a chance to attend to that event and if i can help them i am happy i was able to...

    If you feel unhappy because i "spoil" possibilites to get more than one gift i am sorry i revealed a possible "secret"...

    Kind Regards

    I'm pretty sure the EMs know people log on from more than one account for these things pal... they're not idiots. Calm down. It's only a game.

    Jack, get a grip. Why do you think the Em's place a gate in the first place and don't just drop the vending machine in the middle on Luna? They are players too you know.

    Please don't judge all Brits by the reaction if this idiot.

    I am afraid, if you missed the coronation on your shard, you missed the gift too - so all you can do is try to catch someone nice player to give you one or you will have to buy it..

    That's why i made this post - to make sure more people knwo about it and prepare to attend - it seems to be a fun event with no fighting, alot of talking and possibly alot of lag ;)

    And at the end there will be a gate to a location you find a statue you click and receive a gift..

    Believe me, Devil isn't letting anything out of the bag. The people who collect EM items on all the shards are probably more aware of the event than many of the people who live on a shard. We don't even have an announcement about the coronation on Sonoma so I am grateful for these posts! At least now I know to keep an eye out for it.

    But what is the snake for on Great Lakes??

    Its shard specific.

    For the 15th anniv the EMs setup NPCs for pretty much every major shard/UO villain + at the castle every good guy, which when talked to told about themselves ect. The snake statue was just to tell people where it was lol

    Well they need to get the cost in for transfering them from GL or Origin to Atlantic...
    And it must be now or never - figuring as the event giveout starts, there will be hundrets of the deeds by tomorrow on the shard..

    So there was a gate, which I did not see and did not know about. Followed the returning masses stream and of course (not at least disoriented by that screenshot on the beginning of that thread assuming there would be something on the bridge), got nothing.
    Other players also missed that gate on Europe, and again others did somehow not get the deed.
    So you can also transfer excitement into frustration.

    I don't get why an event this big is not advertised on UO.com. I really don't. I don't believe that they are trying to cater to the rares crowd either.

    This is the coronation of a new ruler. Ridiculous that you have to rely on fan sites to find this stuff out.

    But you DONT have to rely on fansites. EVERY shard that has done the event thus far, has had it on their official EM sites or on the town criers in game.

    I know emotion (sarcasm in particular) is hard to get in text at times (I could be failing here miserably), but I didn't take Woodsman's post the same way you seem to have Promathia. What I got out of it was that all the dates and times should be listed on their main website, regardless of any fan sites. When participating in any high quality entertainment the "entertainers" itinerary should be represented on their main viewing site.

    Just my opinion, but it really couldn't hurt to have some more details on UO.com. Half the reason I'm even posting recently is because the developers have been more vocal with us. It just seems like a similar situation where some good could be done.

    Or you know, you could see the criers spamming in game at every bank, or read the EM Website, or stratics

    I'm not saying anyone is wrong, but I hope you can see my point that there shouldn't have to be an "or". Any serious game company will tell you what is happening in their game on their main web page, its in their best interest to do so.

    Edit: The fact that we have such great fan sites is just a bonus.

    Kylie: No need to please anyone, just common sense.

    See, I look at that a totally different way. I look at it like UO actually cares about their community so they promote the fan sites and want folks checking there to actually build some form of a "community feel" and not just have them visit their website to increase traffic to sell advertising to better their bottom line.... but hey... we are all entitled to our views.

    UO.com. It exists for this purpose.
    I look at it as Mythic gutting the community relations teams for UO, WAR, and DAOC, and leaving us with piss-poor websites.

    If you are right, then that means World of Warcraft, Star Wars: The Old Republic, RIFT, Guild Wars 2, are not willing to promote their fansites because hey, they have major events listed right there on their websites. Those companies must have idiots in their community relations teams.

    You're right. Players should just ignore UO.com and go look at the EM website. UOEM.net

    Having played dozens of MMORPGs over the years, I have never seen another company that hides its events off on completely different websites. Never.

    Im sorry, what other MMO holds events like UO does? Most other MMO's are generic holiday events, or other global events. They dont have server specific events that help shape your servers history.
     
  34. Woodsman

    Woodsman Guest

    The official Japanese UO website covers EM/shard-specific events. UO.com used to cover EM/shard-specific events.

    But Blackthorn is being crowned on every shard, so it's game-wide and not shard-specific. Now if Dupre was being crowned on some shards, Blackthorn on others, and nobody on still others, then we could say this was a shard-specific event.

    Do you want me to show you screenshots from the Japanese website, or from the old UO.com where they highlighted in-game events like this?

    Insulting me doesn't change the fact that they could spend 30 seconds telling people to check the EM sites (the links of which are buried at the bottom of the fansite page and they aren't even listed as official sites).

    I hopped on Lake Austin and Atlantic to pick up the thrones, and the gates were quick on both, and in different locations. Lake Austin had it in front of the bridge (mainland) while Atlantic had the gate in the throneroom.

    Somebody said there were a bunch of Atlantic players waiting on the mainland, who didn't realize the gate was in the throneroom :)

    .... and the town criers (on Atlantic anyway) have been talking about it all day today, and were yesterday as well. *shrugs* That is where the players are right? In game? Best way to advertise it to those who actually play, and for those that don't actively play.... I don't care honestly lol

    The Japanese UO website team is constantly highlighting events on their website. The old UO community teams constantly highlighted events on UO.com, as well as player establishments and events.

    It's a part of selling a game to potential players and helping build up the community and taking those inactive players and turning them into active players.

    I agree that the event has been well spammed ingame, town criers yell it out every hour or so, which means regular players know all about it, BUT what of the people who don't play? Who look at UO.com to see if the might fancy making an account?

    A big splash about a new king being crowned would be a definite draw for new players or old players wondering if it's worth returning!Not everyone knows about or visits fan sites, they need to get their fingers out and have their own forums, t's about time they did AND where is myuo? It has had "Temporarily unavailable" forever now!

    Come on folks, you know it makes sense, they have a big website called UO.com and don't bother to post the main events? It's ludicrous -I'm speaking of business sense- their site should be full of the crowning, the halloween events, the turkeys, the list goes on.

    Ladybird if I could like your post twice I would. I scincerely started to wonder how I had failed so terribly to make my point until I read yours and saw that at least you (and Woodsman) really understand.

    It's not being part of it though, just clicking on a rock. Being part of it is attending the event.

    I understand not everyone can attend every event, but that's life.
