While I have a min to wait for an update..... If this was done because of a dupe then( remember this is all speculation) 1) Why one shard? 2) What does this solve by reverting one shard? 3) The dupe would still exist? 4) Chars that did xfer to other shards with the dupes would taint the other shard right? 5) Does Atl the only shard that is the dupe shard only? Ok then lets go with this also....... Somebody mention ( sorry forgot who) that testing out Pubs on TC1 and all and being on Origin. Did anyone think besides the true handful of players that do actually test for bugs that 1) A few that are dishonest and dupe hope the bug get through all the testing so they could benefit? OR 2) was the bug found after the publish to all shards? I am incline to go to question number one on that. Only reason why it seems more logical. Then again it's all speculation. So what does Mythic do now with these so called offesnders that caused this issue ( if this was the cause) 1) Ban them for good? 2) Actually step up and start making examples? 3) Make it a legal case since they may be losing a large amount of money (subscriptions) because of a couple of players? In the end the "WHOLE" UO community will pay for this in some way which is the sad part. Other players cheating or actual hardware issues this has caused a huge headache for he gaming community. I truly understand players frustrations because there are more than just a few pixels invovled. Actual items bought and used liked tokens as an example, with real cash from the Origin store is mixed in as well. 30 day game code truly wont cut it. Then again EA doesn't have to do anything besides that since they state of no replacing items. We have already seen that from the customizing house glitch of recent.
