    The latter two seem to be relevant to KR. Whereas, the first one is the main issue I believe. I can't remember the last time I saw UO at an actual physical store. They can't just expect new players who have never heard of the game or know someone who does to find it by purely surfing the net do they?

    Oh and the NIN is kool. I'm sure they will get that guy the help he needs.
     
  3. 1. YES YES YES!!!
    2. Hmmph...I like the retro look of ultima, always have. The new client seems to be focused on this, once people start...they rarely leave the gameplay is what makes this game!
    3. This game has progressivly got easier and easier dont make it any easier!!!

    On a side note to 3. It would be nice to see some Newb Dungeons only accessable to Young players, give them a taste of whats to come.

    Marketing should come after any other issues that need looking at.

    Attempts to change UO's graphics typically just annoy the veteran playerbase.

    Difficulty is the tricky bit. You need to be very strong in order to do much in the game. However, it is very easy to become very strong so long as you know what you're doing - joining a guild typically enables "god mode" for new players in short order.

    If it was made harder to become "strong", then the newbies would be able to participate less (new challenges would need to be introduced to keep them occupied). If the current challenges were made easier, then there would be less long-term players (people would get bored that much faster).

    A restructure of the "help" system.

    For the dev team to focus on the existing bugs before adding another thousand lands, items, and potential bugs.

    Some sort of search or filter index for player rune libraries.

    Better customer service would help this product enormously.

    Customers page gms for whatever reasons, they either wait too long or get no real resolutions too many times.

    Customers go to the websight to maybe buy something online using their ccards and they get glitches maybe their ccard is deducted the purchase price yet the sight tellin em it did not work or not work fully etc.

    I think if they focused more on improving customer service even more, it would help them and thus us all in the end.

    Place where I worked once had that motto :

    Customer service is job one or we are out of our jobs. :)
    Catchy motto but it is reality for keeping your customer base, be it online games or Walmarts, fast food or fine dining, or anything else we buy and or hope to wish to keep on buying.

    But then I am a customer service freak myself, if any customer of mine is unhappy by what I am NOT doing...I am not doing my job. Just how I feel about it cuz I am a customer service freak myself. :)

    Yes it does...la
     
  13. No, it doesn't, not unless you want to see a mass migration of UO players to WoW and the announcement that UO would be shutting down in 30 days.

    A server with the exact same rule set this game had the day before Trammell was introduced.
     
  16. I'm glad you came around to the right way of thinking.

    While I don't think shutting down servers is what we need just yet, I do think they need to step back from the 'new lands with every expansion' mentality.

    Each 'new' land means fewer and fewer players spread further and further apart. Improving existing areas makes our low populations less noticeable while still providing the 'new' experience.

    Ugh. no. The last thing we need are more servers. Siege is close enough to that anyways.

    What UO needs is to realize what it has and capitalize on that... which is a better gaming experiance than anything else on the market.... with more to offer than 99% of other games as far as content goes.... no it doesn't have the best graphics but it don't need them....

    when you look at the variety that UO offers it's just unmatched.... with a crafting system, PvP, PvM, the EM programs, as well as housing... which by far puts UO above and beyond most other games with just that.... then they having the whole fishing, MIB and T-Hunting systems... as well as a vast range of dungeons to expand upon.... What we don't need is more shards... or more facets for now at least....


    what we really DO need is a focus on updating old systems, customer service and support boost... and more than anything fixes to the system... not only bugs, and improvements but fixing things like Dupes, Hacks and things of that nature... putting the customer first... UO has long put the customer last.... they don't replace anything, they don't help if you get hacked much, they don't offer more security for your accounts and things like that....

    basiclly if anything adverse happens to your account (which in my opinion after a person has played a game 10 years it is more of an INVESTMENT! than just an account, really cause you put 10 years into something it's an investment of both time and money.... we have been as responsible for shaping the game every bit as much as the DEV team.)... Your basiclly S.O.L... And EA doesn't care...
     
  20. UO needs...

    To stop trying to reinvent itself like newer games, and in the process lose existing functionality and players.

    However it also needs to...

    Tweak some balance issues, the whole topic of balance seems to be getting further and further from their sights, partly due to the 'we're working on KR & now SA' lulls.
