I'm going on ten years now, never once quit or let my subscription lapse, a steady eddie you might say. When I came aboard, just before Age of Shadows, UO has always been a grind to me. Thats the way it's always been, ....I'm used to it. I never joined any other games either, this is all I've known. Prior to UO, I did Motor City Online......which, I still miss to this day, BRING IT BACK DEVS!!!!!!! Anyways, all I wanted to say, UO is what it is, not what it was, nor do I see it ever going back. Materialism is here to stay, just like real life. Enjoy the game.
