I bet you would be laughing if it was all your gold and items that were wiped, and over half a years work. And who is operating a business? I have never said anything about making a living off pixels. How disgusting of you to assume the above, and with that to be casting aspersions upon the character of those who have lost a lot in this grubby way. It goes to YOUR character not mine, and I find it seriously LACKING. I know the tos inside and out and have always abided by it, can you say the same? I have NEVER sold one thing in game for real life dollars, nor bought a single thing off a gold seller site, including gold. My game enjoyment is buying rares in game, for my museum. 676 million in lost gold is a LOT of rares I can no longer purchase for display. To get my money I have to work like stink, grinding for hour upon hour. Being a merchant and operating a museum has been my gameplay for 8 years. I always run vendors, have done for years, I also give away tons and tons of stuff to assist new players. Will 30 days gameplay compensate me, not in the slightest so YES they do OWE me. If they are going to treat me, as a player, different to how they treat other players then yes they DO. They wiped my 12 days and more than 50% of my YEARS income. If they do that to everyone else then sure, I have no right to complain or expect compensation. But they haven't. Due to circumstances completely out of my control, and solely the responsibility of EA I am being singled out and penalized due to their error. So you can laugh all you like. Due to this UO will in all likelihood lose my three accounts.
