    Great, they're back up, and they're not on sale now. I won't buy another thing from the store again. And I"m sure this thread will get locked too, which is fine. The locking of the other 2 threads simply gave the BS people a pass from having to reply in them to the many well deserved replies it got. A simple canned reply is on the log in screen now, wow.

    Please people, please...There is no conspiracy...the disappearance of the codes at saletime and reappearance after the sale is merely coincidence. The lack of communication is also SOP for these people, so don't figure that into the equation either. All is well, and will be even better when we get the new websites and stores in May.

    oh yeah, IBTL

    This is new information and so long as people don't get utterly snide and attacking each other, it will not get locked.

    Glad the codes are back. :) Will have to update links now - thank for the heads up!

    You can't access it unless you use a South America IP.
    And it high likely that Brazil and the rest of Latin America have separated stores as well.

    I can tell you that Stygian Abyss was never available on the Brazil Origin store since they moved all the transactions there:

    a'ight. yeah, proxies allow me to bounce around - i believe the redirects on the EA store are what's important.

    thanks. :)

    Well, according to the UO login screen, the UO Team said the codes are available in the store, but the date/time stamp is June 19, 2015 at 2:33pm. I think someone is trying to cover up their a-- by saying they fixed the problem right away, but in reality it wasn't posted until this morning, June 23 (after the sale).

    I think it may just be someone being lazy and editing the first post rather than making another.

    So at least 3 stores running out of codes all at the same time is merely coincidence? US, Europe and Brazil so far. YEP YEP YEP

    If I understand things correctly, EA owns control of the Origin site and therefore the sales/sales dates of the items posted there,

    Broadsword (Mesanna) admits owning control of the actual UO codes that are for sale on the Origin site, so...,

    Broadsword (Mesanna) dropped the ball by not paying attention to the half price Origin sale/ UO codes available for sale on that site,

    Therefore Broadsword (Mesanna) bears the brunt of of our ire over the disappearance of the UO codes during the Origin half price sale,

    It is her job that has been put in peril and is in future peril if we do not purchase any more UO codes from Origin. com.

    I just took on a car note for the first time in my life so I didn't buy any half price UO codes before the codes vanished, but I was planning to.

    So it kind of saved me money the codes going bye bye.

    Still I feel it's terribly unprofessional of Broadsword to not keep the codes stocked.

    I also realize that UO codes normally go on sale one time per year, or maybe two times, at the most, and even then for just a few hours.

    This is a second sale in just a few months, so was it probably unintended that UO codes were half price again so soon.

    Even if this was the case, we end with the same result, very unprofessional of you Broadsword.

    SO IT IS - and this since years and also with knowless from the UO producers site here and the promise from Mesanna to look about fixing this. Would have been nice to see they fixed that problem in the same way by fixing the buying-code-problem on the Origin store sides.

    I just tried my link and it took me to a Origin store page with everything for sale priced in Euros. I wonder what happened to the first site I linked to?
