    I am so glad to see this! Makes me so proud!

    Recently I was reading a popular gaming magazine and they did a feature on the top 15 MMO's of all time. I was SHOCKED that there was absolutely no mention of UO. Longest running MMO and not even an honorable mention? Shameful. I still think EA needs to hire a press person to get UO out there. I know Bonnie said that word of mouth is powerful and it is. But that's only one marketing leg. Anyone familiar with business 101 knows you need at least 3 marketing legs to make and keep anything successful. We need some more legs!

    I vote for more legs!

    And we all knew that UO is the best MMO... that's why we are still here.

    I predict it will slowly keep climbing back up..

    Eventually every gamer gets sick of "leveling" and decides to try something more complicated.

    It's like watching my kids all learn how to swim.. nobody gave em lessons, they just eventually got bored with the shallow side of the pool and started moving out into the deeper end on their own..

    ive always maintained UO is retro. Retro always gains a rebirth at some point in time. people say that the PVP mechanics in this game are second to none.

    1997 UO was epic.
    Current era UO sucks.
