    Just curious what's in line for being fixed/tweaked/balanced next. Lots of things have been posted with no response from Dev's. The only thing that's been posted is input of other players. Have you noticed? And if you have what are you doing?

    Not for me. I'm more concerned about balanced game play then looks.

    I primarily want to know when the next publish is coming because it finally fixes the bug in crustacean weights in the fishing quests, that popps has been pancakes constantly about (Frankly, most fishers are itching for this, it's just that popps brought it up several times a week for 3 months, and that annoyed some of the more anal posters in doing so).



    That said, are those complaining about the 2-minute video THAT ignorant not to tell, just from watching it, that curse.com or the Bioware PR people editing it with them took a BUNCH of different answers from a MUCH larger set of videotaped interviews, some of them completely out of context? You don't put together anything like that and ask each person ONE quick question, totally cold, then wrap. My guess is that there was probably 30-90 minutes footage those clips were cobbled together from to make one long, 2-minute answer to ONE question.

    The first part of the answer, about the classic shards, appeared before the intro, and didn't even have its QUESTION given so that a typical viewer would have a clue about what the hell Cal was talking about! Only by reading Cal's thread here do you link up the common language between the two and realize that opening statement was about the Classic Shard issue.

    If that video was clunked together by the marketing/PR people, they need to be canned. IF it was edited by curse.com to be that way, they need to get better editors.

    here's a possible item from the bug fixes section:

    • Crustaceans' weight in fish monger orders is fixed.

    and here's an expected item:

    • EC crash to desktop issues are fixed.

    There has never been and will never be any balance in UO.

    Any major balance changes would be spoken of way in advance anyway.

    Who provided the clip to curse?
    Who smuggled the supersecret State of the Game out of fortress EA ...

    try this hypothesis:
    a covert operative(inside of curse) alerted cal to the "possesion" and posting of the clip ... so as cal could "get out ahead of it" ... and remain "unassociated" ... blameless ...

    :talktothehand:

    Heh!
    almost forgot:

    My money's on it being intentionally given to Curse, for two reasons.
    Firstly, if you play favourites with fansites, you end up pissing off the ones that don't get as much attention, and that can lead to bad press.
    Secondly, say they gave it to us - We'd run with it and our already-UO-aware users would see it. They gave it to Curse, which not only reached a wider audience, outside the UO communities, but it also reached the UO communities.

    Bonus third one!
    Curse hosts UO mods for WAR, and the Curse Client allows easy management of them, so they gonna lurrrve Curse for providing a valuable service.

    Well? What the heck are you planning on fixing Devs? Do you need me to list out everything from all the forums?

    I think we are basically being told to go away, to be replaced by more ignorant players that are easier to please.

    Problem is ; as my also very simple (emphasis on I cannot be proud about having understood that, nor humble in a way) conclusion that I seemingly am ; or was ?

    The only one to understand ?

    Is that you can "theme park" your ride. But it has to be a game.

    For example, you knock on moles as they come out of their holes, blatantly barbaric, but at the end you wind a prize or you lose your money.

    Did you really lose it or did you have fun with your friends ? Thats the philosophy part...

    But what happens when you sell virtual gold. Does your money not become a "gamble?" as in : I pay 13 dolla fo dis gam. But I may end up looting that one uber rare artifact on that monster which means I won, as in gambling games ; say 50 dollars in real cash ?

    That is if you are evil in the vain sense. But also one reason I have let decay a TON of server birth rares, (yes I was one of the few first thieves who went around to see what never got "locked down"). The head of my murderer only was worth around 3k USD at the time. My house where it was (first spot next to vesper bridge) was a murderer's paradise (close to bucs den too) oh... nostalgia taking me over !

    My account was worth much more than that I'm sure. (I actually had 3 accounts full of maxed out characters, but gave two away as friendship gifts)

    And... I... could... sell each thing individually ; thanks to EA.

    But I took my best character and I watched all my belongings DECAY, my head ; and well EA did the rest by deleting my characters (to save server space) it seems. I tought I would have to defend my IDOC and maybe have some fun... but noone came... I think I was really feared, mwaha.

    Not one dime out of UO or online "games". To me it's a game, as long as it has mystery... and I find myself doubting now.

    Yet, I am the only real evil in this "game" because my evilness is not vain and is stronger than ever.

    You see my point ?

    It's not a "game" its a gambling game, and I beleive that much different laws apply to those than the ones currently DESTROYING it.

    Oh I feel so dangerous with this insight.

    So evil...

    DITTO. Did they insult your intelligence? HA, they can insult you, but not vice versa, even if you do it in fun

    Wait until you learn who I am...

    I mean in character, in UO. :thumbup1:

    But I am not insulting EA, or anyone in particular.

    But who I am insulting, they know who they are alright, and it's going to be more than just a lil fun.
