    It's unbelievable that this has been a problem for as long as it has for as many people as it has.

    I don't know, usually I try multiple browsers if something happens with a page loading. Otherwise I've never had any problem related that I can't resolve by switching browsers.

    Although choosing to play WoW just because you have a problem with activating an account with another MMO? Certainly hope you've wanted to go over to WoW and aren't just doing it out of protest. Otherwise you might realize you've wasted your time with WoW.

    There is a paranoid part of me that swears that EA really, really, REALLY has their heart set on UO failing.

    My god, the newest things in the uogamecodes site were just sitting around for DAYS to be purchased before they were officially announced. The site often does not work. The High Seas booster was a nightmare for many to buy. There are numerous complaints about the art but nothing is ever done. Bugs and tweaks needed in game are let languish for literal years. I mean... its baffling.

    Someone to fix the site costs money and will ea not outsource the pay shop anyway?
    I remember reading something like that last year, that some other company will take over?

    And this is why we continue to get the service we get. Nothing gets fixed, nothing has to be made to work properly...because somewhere, someone will find a "workaround".
    Switch browsers, run thru em all till ya find one that will happen to hit the site at the right moonphase, and then you can spend your money with us.
    My big ole butt!
    They should make this stuff work, and work like a professional organization should! The paying customer shouldn't ahve to jump thru hoops to BE a paying customer.

    A workaround that takes, what, one minute? Big deal. And that's assuming you HAVE to do it, which I personally haven't had to do it in about 5 years. The times I canceled and re-activated my account in the past couple years and buying codes, etc, I haven't had a single problem with them at all.

    If it can be fixed by using a 2nd browser then there shouldn't be any problem. Granted there some people who can't get it to work with a couple browsers and that's where the REAL issue is.

    Will they ever fix it for people who do have issues? Probably not. So why not try something else instead of arguing with people who can give tips on how to try and get it to work?

    Remember back in the day when you had to try a few times to even get online?
    Feeling a bit spoiled by today's "instant gratification" technology?
    Can't handle when something doesn't work perfectly the first time?
    Then UO is not for you.

    UOgame codes still hasn't updated all the advanced char token offerings that came out in publish 66. Was that back in August?

    Still surprises me at how hard they make it to get our money. I understand you might need to try different browsers for the page loading issues for managing an account, but it's really annoying. How many other places that your spend your money at online have these issues? Adding to that they have known about these issues for a long time and don't correct it.
