    Veteran awards are now once again available for all shards.

    Also, we are working on getting house decay turned on and expect it to be working within the next week.

    Luckily I have resolved all my issues with the new account system (knock on wood) but there are many others who I know have not and this seems like kicking sand in their face.

    Whose brilliant idea is this???

    Well since EA does not make little decisions for the game itself like, turning back on house decay, it would be UO Devs making this call.

    Cal isnt here to take the fall for this so lets see....who?.....hmmmm....??????.....*thinks really hard*......*sniff*.....smells smoke...


    Gah!!!!! It's not that hard to figure out. Why did I even over think the situation and burn a couple of brain cells when the answer was obvious.

    The sad thing is for the ones that are still having issues..... we pretty well know what is going to happen to them.

    I have my opinion on whom made this call but I wont say because the defenders and the flamers will attack me and I dont have a flame proof suit.

    Well as a "low life" idoc raider i can say only one thing

    EA that stinks, how can you turn on the decay system when so many are still having a nightmare

    i enjoy idocs, but only because i get shinies left by those that do not want to play anymore, i had a nightmare with acct manangement until a really helpful guy at origin walked me through setting things up, If we lose players and their houses due to EA's unbelieveably poor handling of this is will be a real shame

    To thoses affected i feel for you, if i was to lose my house and things (EA pixels i know blah blah) MY time and money and effort due to this i would feel VERY sick

    i feel for you guys...

    STOP IDOC CYCLE UNTIL THINGS GET FIXED, NO BRAINER REALLY


    also saying that, all that should happen now if your accts are "unpaid" the cycle starts, 90 days "grace" then decay starts so just because the idoc system starts you should not be affected YET! houses falling should only be those that have been unpaid for 90 days or more up to the migration system, so unless i am VERY wrong, guys you have time to get things fixed

    Regular updates is cool but why tell us you're turning on house decay like it's some feature we were looking forward to being turned back on when there appear to be several billing problems outstanding, and house decay is linked to billing?

    It's especially odd in light of the fact that you mentioned this in the same breath as the Vet Rewards, which is a feature we've been looking forward to having turned back on.

    Now, granted, this may be a way of saying "very soon we will have detailed instructions up on the new billing system, how to do everything related to it, and contact info for the unlikely event something goes wrong, and thus soon we'll feel comfortable enough to turn house decay back on."

    In which case you should have said it that way. As now, both the way it's phrased and the company it's in, it sounds like you think we think house decay is a much-missed feature.

    DUMBEST thing I have ever heard. Just look at the boards, people are still having problems and the only thing saving thier homes is it has been turned off.
    Migration is not done, leave it off.

    I disagree. Turn it back on already. It seems like the majority of players still having problems are the ones that simply refuse to do any reading before jumping in and spending hours on the site getting nowhere. All the information you need is here, posted over and over.

    I can just see it, someone going to the site and entering their account name into the Mythic Master Account box repeatedly, over and over, ready to throw the monitor against the wall they are so frustrated. Then they come to Stratics to ***** and moan, curse EA and inform us they're quitting, until someone asks them if they've been putting _uo at the end of their account name.

    Turn decay back on and get on with it already! A month from now people will still be saying no we're not ready. Why not? If you haven't played in forever and were still paying AND haven't even checked your email account that's tied to your UO account, how long are they supposed to wait for those people?

    Looks like account ages are fixed too. All my characters have the same account age now, so I have that going for me... which is nice.

    But has nerfed my house storage system somehow! I have 3411 max secure storage, and I count 2894, but game counts 4628. Just changed today. If I take anything out of a chest I have to hold it, as it will not allow me to put it back in chest. Anyone else have similar issue? Only affecting one of my 5 accts.

    I have two fairly big problems with your logic:

    The first is that there are plenty of folks that don't frequent Stratics. They would have no idea what is being discussed here and the e-mails / herald do not contain the same wealth of information. I've helped a few people (outside of Stratics) and it makes me wonder how many others are "sufferering in silence."

    The second is that there are some folks (reference some threads on the first page) that are having credit card issues totally unrelated to their ability to read and comprehend what has been posted here.

    It still takes 90 days of account inactivity BEFORE a house starts to decay. Turn it back on. That's plenty of time to continue to work out the problems some players are still having.

    Okay, I'm officially steamed and feel like someone in Virginia is deliberately withholding information from us.

    Go to the UO Japan site and please try whichever translation service you normally use and translate this page:

    ƒjƒ…[ƒXÚ×

    It says a whole heck of a lot more than the little two sentence announcement we got in English here:

    Mythic Entertainment | Ultima Online | Play the 14-Day Free Trial!

    Below is the translation I get through Google. It leaves a lot to be desired, but it's very apparent someone on the UO Japan cares a lot more about EA's customers than whoever in Virginia is calling the shots about what we see for announcements:

    Resumption of corruption and house veteran rewards
    September 15, 2011

    We resume the veteran reward system has been shut down along with the migration of account management site. We also update and restart the account age, age accounts that appear on each character, but are not necessarily updated immediately. The longer you "Date that the character was logged" will be updated after about 2 weeks. ( more ) Also, the account is currently inactive (closed), but let me set the house to start because of corruption that, in the next week to normal decay of the house rules will return. Those who own a home, whether it is set correctly for the account status and payment plan account management site Please confirm. In particular I pay by credit card are unaware that it has been reset forgotten your payment plan and then linking to EA Account, so you could lose your home account is down We look always be confirmed.



    I'm hoping maybe Athos is checking here and might be able to give us a much better translation.

    On the contrary, was told by CS gentilman that the minute the house decay is active all homes that were inactive before the migration timers didnt stop. So the many who are still having trouble turning on accounts because of this accounting change will go poof.
    Meaning that someone who was due to turn on their accounts during the time of the migration and the original date has past the 90 days those houses are going to go down. And we will have a few thousand players go postal.

    The migration is still flawed, ips are still being blocked if you even try to use more then 1 email for listing accounts over the 9/10.
