    So while i'm waiting for them to sort out this mess, What are these gametime codes i'm hearing peeps talking about?

    Do i get them from Wallmart and if so what are they called??
    I've seen cards for other games there before but not for UO.

    Would be news to me. Have not seen anything in any store {including gamestop} that is UO based since UO Gold. My best guess would be from uo game codes.

    I thought this would have been about the EA game cards that walmart sells. Since they advertise them on UO.com

    Since the Warhammer fiasco in 2010 I havent trusted what EA uses for billing.

    I bought from other non-EA sites with a pre-paid master card for gametime.

    Oh i'm getting f'ing sick of this s***.

    Ultimate game card - Not valid to this game.
    EA game card - Not valid to this game.

    Both claim to be able to use for UO on their websites.......

    So now i'm another $40 out of pocket.

    EA Customer services are gonna get ANOTHER rant at them.....

    Seriously it shouldn't be this hard just to get in a game i've been in for the last 12 years without billing problems.

    Your not out any money.. you just can't use them yet.

    They have stated time and time again, here and other fansites.. that gametime codes haven't been implemented into the new billing system yet and to not use them yet.

    on that EA redem site this is the reply i get:-

    Fund your EA Account Balance


    You currently have an existing cash wallet that does not match the currency associated with the retail card code entered. We cannot apply this code to your account. If you need further assistance, click the “Contact Us” link at support.ea.com.


    Wtf does that mean???

    Gah, I don't know. That redeem code site is new to me.

    Did you try entering the code into the Account Management page?

    One thing I notice is a difference in terms.. gametime code -vs- EA Game Code.

    Eventually you should be able to get it on origin.com like the WAR players do now. WAR players have able to buy and apply gametime codes from origin.com for at least a week. Coming "SOON" to UO.

    I have just successfully completed applying a 30 day gametime code, that I obtained via ultimategamecard in June and had not used yet, to my Ultima account.

    I have purchased 'ultimategamecard' from Walmart, and other retail outlets. It is more expensive than uogamecodes.

    You use the 'ultimategamecard' website to negotiate the purchase and the gametime code is e-mailed to you. They do not have up to date items for sale, but it has been a great alternative, for me thus far, for gametime purchases.

    Agreed. And not just Origin.com - Warhammer players can buy them off of Amazon, WalMart, etc.

    EA just needs to ditch uogamecodes.com being run by a third party and bring it all into Origin.com. I know I said this before, but people should be able to add High Seas, Stygian Abyss, and the various pixel crack to their accounts from the new account system. EA would probably sell more to spur of the moment buyers as well, who are doing account management stuff.

    And Origin.com already sells Stygian Abyss and High Seas codes anyways.

    I hope this is the goal of this whole thing... All BioWare/Mythic games under one umbrella and all the good things that could come from that.

    Are there any sites out there that offer game time codes and dont charge an arm and a leg..? Im in the same spot.. i called my banque today to block all EA transactions in case they do that double bill bs thats been going on.. I dont feel comfortable with them having my cc on file .. so opted to do the gametime code thing... but all the sites are alot more then what I usually pay.. I've never bought a code before .. always just paid with my cc via Uo's site so is this a normal thing to expect.? Kinda sucks we have to resort to this..
