This is not a rant, it is an announcement. After the announcement of the 70.4 patch robbery, the constant xfer issues, the house security issues, and everything else rotting under the UO sun, I hereby suggest a trial boycott. The devs need to learn to stop working on crappy new content to take money out of our pockets, and to finally buckle down and focus once and for all on UO's current issues. Let's show them what UO will be like without the people that really matter, the players. Starting this Monday (5/16) after server-up, I propose a complete boycott lasting until Saturday (5/21) at server-down (Saturday morning, not Sunday). If enough join in, all shards will be ghost towns all week. Sure, some players will take advantage of the situation and farm items. Let them. Some kind of statement needs to be made. This behavior has gone on for years, it is time the devs quit moving forward and stop to clean up the problems they left in their wake. We pay the fees, therefore we hold the cards, not them. I know no one will shut down their accounts (at the moment) due to their houses (if you haven't noticed yet, that's how they get ya), so maybe a trial of what the game will be like without customers will suffice, for now. Vote above to let us know if you're in or out. Let's try to keep this thread on track to help spread the word. There should be no reason to argue. We all have our differences, but we are connected through UO's bugs/issues. It is only 5 days without UO. Make a statement with your absence. EDIT: I understand it may not be the devs' fault. Whomever is calling the shots, this is directed at them.
