    I nearly choked when I read this.

    Its over?

    Really?

    Not going to bother to test the fixes for the bugs/problems that still exist?

    The Dev Team must live on a pre-Void Daemon'd Magincia. Pride commeth before a fall...

    Find bugs yes.... did they fix them? That's debatable...

    Will they be fixed at launch.... doubtful.

    But hey what can we expect we are talking about UO/EA and well we all know the track record....

    3rd Dawn, AoS, SE, ML...... SA..... the EC.... need I say more?

    And to top it off the EC is still in beta itself and remains unfinished..... SA remains unfinished....

    And did Treasure Chests EVER work in Ilshenar? Nope...

    And lets not even start with the whole Virtue System being unfinished...

    Not talking about those..... I'm talking about the ones in the dungeons and all over that hold NOTHING. Missed opportunity to add something to the game for thieves.

    Not talking about the new chests.

    a 2 week beta? umm. i'm not one of those players who complains a lot but honestly think about how that looks to your customers.

    It sounds ok, as the developers asked the testers how hard the bosses are the real test comes when it goes live and is either too hard or too easy.

    Truth is probably in between as there will hopefully no too big bugs, bot more likely smller ones for years.

    Um... We're not talking about just boss's.... we are talking about buggy boats.... messed up boats..... so now when my boat screws up and I lose 50k on a boat and can't place another on my character..... I'll have to page a GM and wait the 9 hours for them to answer my page and tell me to report that as a bug... or send me to the website... and I'll spend months not being able to use a boat.

    But hey that's no problem because hey we are getting a new booster pack...

    Most Uo players should know to wait a few weeks/months before buying stuff if they want 'playable (sort of bugfree)' content.
    I doubt it will be worse than AOS, so will manage that too.

    That is an extremely sad state for UO p(l)ayers then.

    Quantity over quality always equals crap.
