    Depends on what you're interested in doing in this game. Can always open a trial account for free and look around first hand to get an idea if you want to activate your main account. How much has changed depends on exactly how long ago you quit, when did you last play?

    Welcome back..
    If you don't remember your account name I think they can track it down with your email.
    Make sure you read some of the advice here on Stratics concerning the Account Migration.

    Mythic Entertainment | Ultima Online | Play the 14-Day Free Trial!

    The client download is on the right side there..
    I reccomend the Enhanced Client but it's a personal preference thing, both clients are there.
    If you do decide to use the Enhanced Client (or EC as you'll see it referred to) I'd also suggest using Pinco's UI.

    And If you ever come to Catskills, I have a small guild that also plays every day.

    Well do you remember the account name? If you do it's easy. If not it gets complicated.

    Make a Mythic master account..
    Then link your UO account using "account name"_uo
    Then your uo account will show up with an option to activate it.
    You can use a credit/debit card or a gametime code at that point.
    There are much more detailed explanations up top where the stickies are labelled "Account Migration Ongoing Problems"

    It can be pretty frustrating... Have you gotten as far as creating a Master Mythic account?

    Hint : your Mythic and EA account names will be your email address.
    Once you have your Mythic Account setup remember to set yourself a new password. Then we'll move on to linking your account.
    P.S. Do you have Vent or ICQ? It might be easier to walk you through it that way.

    I went through this last week. Its insanely complicated and gave me a headache. 2 hours later, I did finally get my account active. I used the guides here at Stratics. I feel that there was something missing in the guide, but I managed to get it done. I cant remember what I had to do that was not in the guide, but have no doubt, it is a complete PITA.

    If you have a microphone I suggest you download and install the Vent client..
    My vent info is: vent69.light-speed.com port 11945
    My ICQ is 110373412
    Don't give up we'll have ya playin soon!

    I sometimes wonder how many people try to play this game and give up just trying to create an account.

    Going through this same mess with a relative of mine who wants to play.

    Agreed, this is a real turn off. The Origin store is even worse.

    Funny how other games don't have a problem taking your money, but EA does....

    Don't forget to set the account to auto renew. Do it while the puzzle path is fresh in your mind geting through account management. Trying to get back to your account info 6 months later is a pain.
