    Word of death armor ignore stealther's.
    Pub 16 faction runic fencers with long spears.
    Stealth/Archer tamers.
    Nerve/Death/Nerve template that constantly spammed evasion.
    Nervestrking, bukuto mages.
    5/6 mages with no sdi cap.
    Dread mare/ greater drag para gank.
    Explosion Ice Staff instant kill.
    Axes with double strike insta kill.
    Never ending special moves
    EP w/faction bandaids.
    Nerfed mages to sell the last upgrade.

    THE MASSIVE AMOUNT OF MADE FROM DUPPED VALORITE HAMMER WEAPONS IN THE GAME RIGHT NOW!

    Really EA before you put out more stuff you should make an effert to balance the game. Time after time history teaches us whatever you put in the next upgrade is totaly overpowered. This is stupid, it causes people to leave the game and the ones that dont suffer for not using the latest templetes REGUARDLESS IF WE BUY IT OR NOT.

    Is it any wonder the game has less and less playes everytime you add content. Your plan to force people to buy the next expansion dosent work EA

    This is just a few of the overpowered templetes EA take's at least 6 months to nerf, feel free to post any if i missed them.

    Maybe i should apply at stratics so i can feel extra special myself, LOL Maybe you should post about the countless mods who got fired and tell the masses exactly why.

    Reguardless what you think, i am telling the truth. EA needs to balance the game instead of just adding more stuff.
     
  6. Maybe you should remember that regardless of all the "mistakes" the devs have ever made, UO is still here. Don't like it? Don't play. Stuff like this isn't constructive, and it doesn't help to change anything, thus the responses you've got.
     
  7. Do you honestly believe anyone really cares whether you buy the expansion or not?

    I know I sure as hell don't give a flying **** what you plan on doing. I seriously doubt anyone else does either.

    Complain, complain, complain.

    Do you ever have anything good or constructive to say? Why are you still playing?

    Honestly, most people have tuned you out.

    Fired? You can't get "fired" when you aren't being paid. Stratics Mods are purely voluntary. I know. I was one, but when they merged alot of the forums, I got left out (Tailor was merged into Craftsman and Paladin was merged into Warrior). As far as I was concerned, they had way too many forums and way too many mods. The merge and mod reduction was the right move.

    Please tell me, in all honesty, why do you even play Ultima Online?
    This isn't a flame or a troll.
    You are obviously miserable with the entire game. You've never, ever, had anything positive to say. You hate just about every aspect of it. Why, then, do you continue to give them your money month after month? If you are so very unhappy why even log on?

    It's not because you feel there will be any significant changes to the way you want them, you have already made that clear.
    So, what is it Ex? What keeps you playing and paying? What keeps you here? Do you just thrive on having things to complain about? Do you feed off of being miserable?

    On that minor point , I agree that Person A shouldn't worry about what Person B does

    However EA should most definitely look at the quality of their products and takes customer service into consideration. Ther are definitely some qualitative issues EA should change in thier UO product. At this point it's EA is who needs to adapt , not the players.

    I don't agree with alot of his issues he stated . However there are some issues especially the duping that need addressing

    Ok, don't buy it. More copies for everyone else.

    Why don't you quit the game while you're at it since all you ever do is complain. Although do take into account that most if not all those items you listed here were either short lived or never a problem to begin with.

    Oh, you forgot to add your seal of approval for your post. No worries, I will add it for you :D

    The mysticism and imbuing I need to read up on.
    I have to agree however due to the high levels of content added to the game is a good thing. It makes players adjust and maybe in some cases make too much of an adjustment

    The mysticism and imbuing as well as the changes to glassblowing and masonry seem pretty kewl. Masonry based weapons sounds kewl.

    When EA/Mythic comes out with gargoyles that will be interesting to as well as the ability to change armor into "gargoyle armor"

    I like some of the proposals, but I do have to agree in part with the balancing issues. I think they should spend time balancing archery / melee. enhancing outdated skills while applying some restrictions to skills which seem overpowered. Making some enhancements to spellweaving seems somewhat necessary as it seem underpowered compared to magery / necromancy. Maybe not nerf animal taming but nerf greater dragons.

    I dunno there are alot of opinions

    To the Original Poster -

    You're name is so well suited it is absolutely uncanny (ExGirlfriend).

    There's a reason she's an ex. I chose not to listen to her sh*t anymore. Welcome to ignore.

    God that feels better - anyone want to play UO for a while?

    At least give the upgrade a chance. Being negative before it is released is just pessimism. It might be great. Sure some things will not be to your liking but it is difficult to please everyone.
