    Frivolous Odiferous Fake. I was hoping for a little more to chew on, but talk about terse! Nothing yet on spellweaving bug, ROT, or Cocoa trees. Just disappointed more wasn't said about anything of substance.

    One single question and that one being why this week's FoF is so short. Guess it was too much to explain why most of the others have been about the same length.

    Dear EA, if Jeremy ever loses her job please do not hesitate to pm me about taking her position. I would enjoy working for a company where my job description is vague and there is zero accountability for not doing my what I am supposed to. Thanks.

    I think you should just get a degree as a meteorologist..... they say whatever they want don't really matter it'll be wrong anyway... I'm sure it pays better.

    Why are we still catering to the Japanese? Is this not the way we got ourselves into the economical crap we are in? I guess human kind never learns from their mistakes.

    Err, its due to Japan that UO even exists right now, more than likely. A large amount of the customers are from there.

    What a joke. First, it's not even Friday. It seems like the FoF does more to promote WRR than anything else. May as well have not done one this week or the past couple months for that matter.

    Where are all the fanboyz coming to Jeremy's defense this week?

    If we are to believe the current set of excuses, Draconi must be the only one that can answer any questions at all any more. And, believe it or not, he cannot be reached, or maybe bothered at this time.

    Where is Robert in all of this? Probably sitting back giving out "attaboys!"

    Anyone got any good contact info for someone in EA that might take notice of an email campaign?

    Most players who post on stratics (well, the ones since it came back online) are now tired of this or already have stopped playing UO.

    Yes, there are still a handful who will come on every thread to scream that everything is great, but seriously... we all know who they are, and everyone knows you can count them on MAYBE both hands.

    Most anymore, everyone knows what a steaming pile of.. *ahem*... you know that this game and the attention paid to it are.

    If Jeremy cannot answer anything (as she has had 4 days to contact ANYONE with questions) I will assume, like most already do, that the skeleton crew that guides UO is really in bad shape.

    PS: Is Bob or whomever on the EAMythic team that had the 'smirk' post about what was up with UO: SA still smirking? I wondered... he made that post a half year ago.

    ...

    Unless we get some hard info on the track of the game (i.e. advancing the new client), and unless WRR can get a feed going that doesn't flake out to music during the answer to a question and isn't full of going from static to clear to overloaded to static to overloaded to clear to..., I don't really have a lot of anticipation for this weekend's town hall.

    You know, you ever consider that Jeremy might actually be being truthful?

    Check the July 6, 2007 FoF....

    Same number of questions as this one.

    Reason?

    There was a UO House of Commons chat that answered many FOF-worthy questions 2-3 days before, followed by a Town Hall the day after the FOF post (in Columbus, OH, that I attended) that answered MANY more questions, and the answers were repeatedly covered in reports here of the event.



    If you want your FoF questions & answers, we'll get them Saturday Night/Sunday as the reports from the San Diego Town Hall. And, we'll probably get more answers from there, if people actually take notes (over half the questions from Columbus weren't reported, let alone the answers), than from the last 3 months of FoF.

    Something even on the order of a Two on Thursday would have whetted my appetite, such as a Trippin' Out-a-state Teaser. Journeying to sunny California for realm shattering changes at Saturday's Town Hall. See the newest concept art for next event or maybe SA monsters (why not load an image of what's upcoming on UO Herald?)....Draconi's sabbatical to Japan. Is he learning to dupe and cross shard colorful slimes, or is he learning the secrets to new firecrackers of fatality? Titillate us with quality FoFs....please.

    Well the fanboi can say and do what they will.

    But if this is it, the best we can get, we are indeed in sad times. Y'all say, wait till the meetup, well we have, this aint the first one. And nothing much comes out of them either. If this one, has any real and solid answers to the questions we keep posing, I will be shocked.

    And nothing against Draconi, but I wonder what he is teaching the Japanese?
    They seem to have their **** together a lot better than EARS, and EAMythic.
    Events, new things, seers, etc etc, EA Va should be learning from them!

    So, Regine... You've been reading this thread a while, what are your thoughts on the lack of communication we are experiencing?

    Here's hoping we get alot of info from the town hall. And Jeremy
    did say this would be on Thursday since they were flying to San
    Diego.
    Crosses fingers for some SA info.;)

    Deb, you're looking for expansion info and Jeremy is focused on a publish pushback. I'd say you are very likely to be disappointed or perhaps be in need of a chiropractor to help you with those fingers.

    i once sent in 5 questions i have never seen them in the FOF.
    Still wating...
    If you think The people that run These sites that Concern UO are listening to us, your dilusional.
    If you post about the lack of communication, your post gets deleted.
    i Personaly rarely post here for the most part just because there is never awnsers or the posted gets zapped by over zelous mods...UO Communication is dead.

    Spellbound,

    The cocoa tree question was FINALLY answered on uoforums by Cal. A fellow poster here (forget who, sorry) was kind enough to point that out. Personally I didn't like the answer as it didn't really say anything, but it's more than we got here from the community rep. Big surprise. :talktothehand:

    There hasn't been a Five on Friday in months.... many months...
     
  24. They got Town Hall coming up, cut them some slack...

    I mean yea the FoF sucked, but they are preparing for a big event filled with trammies dressed up as wizards.

    (this would terrify me)

    eh, we'll see. I will go out on a limb and say there will be no new information gained from the town hall. I mean no new information about cheaters, new expansions, new clients etc.

    You will probably get new information on current year bugs and mistakes and current year events. And by that I mean: "No we haven't forgotten about the threads. Yes we intended for 25k point tickets to be claimed by youngs. No the spellweaving change was not a mistake but it was a mistake and we are changing it back. Look for a new strangerer stranger. etc." That kind of stuff.

    the real reason the fof didn't include anything is because they needed -something- to tell people tomorrow. so what they did was write up the fof and those answers will fill up the town hall meeting. well, those answers and a lot of 'uhm..' and 'er..' and don't forget 'we're looking into it'.
