    Well, I think it's safe to assume they're still not back. many folks searching for them with no avail. no useful leads as to their locations and no evidence to promote the thought that they are back.

    It's now a day after the original time frame...

    Well...they were crashing shards and duping elves...

    Maybe it's a harder problem to fix. Wish they would update us though.

    Also, remember the new one was always introduced at night here in the US, so I wouldn't be expecting anything for at least 4 or 5 hours.

    yea this is pretty lame.
    they should tell us When to expect them. tomorrow is not the same as tomorrow night.:cursing:

    and they should let us know which to expect.
    they said they fixed the problem So will Vaector be put back up for all the people who weren't around before he was taken away? Or are they just going to skip him and spawn #6 somewhere?
    I think they should put Vaector back up. They'll have to anyway since they said after all six are introduced they will all start spawning randomly. So he better be fixed all the way for that, and what better way to be sure than to bring him back up before we see #6?

    this is utterly stupid and riciulous. ive spent ALL day wandering aroun looking for strangers when some communication could have helped!!! i think your asking too much for them to communicate honestly and forthrighly to us.that is obviously a problem for EA.

    Why bother enjoying the rest of the game when you can just sit around here complaining about a single part of it? :p

    I just saw the one that spawns in the dojo (Riverdancer? :>) on Siege P.
    maybe cause no one ever killed it ...I don't know.

    cuz these stranger battles have been the single most source of fun in uo in a long time...vrey enjoyable battles....and this besides the point

    point is the EXTREMELY SHODDY communications from EA. and as moonstar put it...they should tell us When to expect them. tomorrow is not the same as tomorrow night.
     
  12. Contrary to popular belief, "tomorrow night" is indeed part of "tomorrow", as is "tomorrow morning" and "tomorrow afternoon". All 3 put together make the whole of "tomorrow", with any of these only being a part of it.

    Oh, the world is round as well, not flat.

    Those guys, I tell ya, they'll believe anything....:coco:
     

  13. Thanks, Red

    Interesting.... on Napa, all the npc clones are gone from Heartwood now. Wonder if that bodes well for the reappearance of a reprimanded stranger. Oops, just noticed there are still twin Tholefs.

    And the Spring cleaning folks are still wandering around on Siege. Maybe they are looking for OSI owned houses.

    Definition of Trammel from Merriam-Websters Online Dictionary includes this for Trammel:

    "something impeding activity, progress, or freedom : restraint",

    and because we know there is no Trammel on Siege Perilous, those unimpeded folks have happy feet!

    Exactly!!! :rant2:

    In all seriousness, I personally have come to conslusions about the time frames put on fixes/changes/event over the years. EA is like my best friend (many of you know him as Theoran), if he says 5 minutes, I multiply that by 4...i.e 20 minutes:lol:

    We can do the same in UO, if EA says 1 day, plan on about 4 days. If things happen sooner then fantastic!.

    1 DAY per EA= 4 DAYS
    1 WEEK per EA= 4 WEEKS
    1 MONTH per EA= 4 MONTHS
    ect...

    Kidding aside...

    Im still at work, getting ready to leave, per stratics still no Strangers. Per the above post they should be here today. They still have about 6 hours to follow through.

    *waits patienty, prepares to not get dissapointed*

    The Vanguards are gone though, which is nice. Complete waste of time. And it made doing the collector quest (when I had to go to Nujelm) a pain in the arse. Terrible mobs, bad tracking, teleport issues. Good riddance.

    Totally realm changing.

    I just saw a vanguard yesterday i think it was.
    what they've done is made it just 1 vanguard controller spawning instead of the 3 or more it used to be.

    so the stranger spawned, and i hit him with an explode crashing pacific. Can the devs explain why they reverted to a stranger that we've done, that has proven to break shards? How about move on and stop breaking shards with an obsession of one stupid krysan.
