    After the god-awful Re-Enlisters video, we know the Mythic Marketing Dept. is swimming in fail.

    Why are you surprised the advert for the booster is repetative? :p

    Oh, yeah.

    uogamecodes.com is messed up again. You can't buy anything from the site because you get thrown into a login loop.

    Seriously, ditch this pathetic site and have the Bioware Mythic store sell these things.

    Mac PC has a continuous log in loop, XP Machine tells me my postcode is wrong when it isn't, My main PC tells me to contact my CC company and finally my laptop tells me to phone an American EA number.

    No joke..

    And it would be cool, if you could actually order more than one code from the EA Store at the same time... ;) (UOGameCodes.com doesn't work for me)
    It's really hard to order something from the EA Stores from Europe right now... :(

    The EA Store link keeps redirecting to the homepage of the UK store for me. :( No UOHS when I search on the site either.

    Reference to UK/Euro Players..

    " - European players may not be able to access the North American EA store, so please purchase from uogamecodes.com instead. "

    (Sadly its EA so dont expect accuracy)

    Got my High Seas code from uogamecodes about 2:00am (GMT: U.S.).

    Guess it would be best to wait until after the patch at 10:00am to register it though; that is what I gathered from the posted info.

    So, I'll get home from school about noon, eat some lunch, then get crackin' on registering the code & downloading whatever hoo-haa from the patcher.

    Soooo EXCITED; can't wait! :beer:

    Payment accepted straight away for me with a VISA/Debit card from the UK and using WinXP/Firefox. However the Code email directs you to ultima-registration.com to enter it, but the page times out for me. You can however get in via UO.com Account Management, and enter it under Account Upgrade there instead. Yaaaaaargh!

    Well apparently my 'zip code' is incorrect. It's the same one I have used on the UOGamecodes site for years, including buying gametime a couple of weeks ago.

    Apparently EA programming knows better than me, and doesn't care what it accepted earlier, it now does not want my money.

    Such a quality company..... they can't even take cash from people using the same cc and info they accepted a few days ago without screwing it up, most likely thanks to the 'upgrades' to the site in preparation for the release of High Seas.

    Quality all the way through though - the error message ends "Then press the 'Cotinue Checkout' button to continue."

    Cotinue Checkout?

    Another reason I won't upgrade. gamecodes is so borked on these releases it takes days to get things straight.

    there are scads of bugs to fix yet once again an upgrade is shoved thru the system. I'm betting reported bugs still exist in the "final" product as well. <shakes head>

    Only one more account to close.

    I've upgraded my account but I am confused if I need to download anything. I want to get it going before I leave for work, but I don't really see anything to actually download.

    They will take the servers down from 10am EST till approximately 2pm EST to upgrade the client. Then Im assuming there will be a patch. Nothing to download.

    Also, I dont know if this is the case now, but when SA came out, the only way I could get uogamecodes to work was with firefox. Purchased 4 codes from them last night, applied with firefox with no issue whatsoever.

    UOgamecodes still not working for me. Never ever did. I'll try the EA store, once I get over the fact that TWO EXPANSIONS LATER, UOGAMECODES STILL SUCKS.

    Hi Guys,

    Sorry for all the confusion and frustration. Calvin is working on it this morning to see if we can't get this straightened out for you. Will keep you updated as to the progress being made.

    1) On the download front ... you won't need to download anything until the shards come back up this afternoon.

    The download is also not very large for the update.

    2) On UOGamecodes ... as Mesanna stated I'm already on the store admin about a few things this morning. I will try to keep you updated through the day.

    I tried to buy UO:HS on uogamecodes.com with

    - Internet Explorer / Firefox (anti-ad/filter programs disabled)
    - on Windows XP
    - with two different Mastercards
    - from Europe (Switzerland)

    No success until now.

    I sent an email now from support.ea.com with my order in a message to them, hopefully this will work (as it was my only solution to order UO:SA back then)...

    *awaits more or less patiently more answers on this subject* rolleyes:
