    Woohooo it is almost here:danceb::danceb::danceb:

    Now if we could just get an answer on multi pack discounts and
    whether or not we will be able to buy more than 2 items from
    UO GameCodes. I would like to buy bookcases as well as the expansion.
    I have some serious decoing to do :):):):):)

    I believe the devs said before that it's not their decision.

    Expanding on that, logically, the ball's probably in marketing's court.
    They need to make the decision of "What is more profitable?"
    1.) Bulk buy discounts, that will probably result in more expansion purchases. and customer satisfaction.
    2.) No bulk buy, which may irk a portion of players, shift less of the expansion, but may bring in more revenue.

    I imagine anything like that will be announced closer to the date.

    Yup, the 2D client needed a patch but KR and SA clients did not.

    There was a post from Crissay stating that you should call them if your planning on needing more than 2 accounts upgraded. Of course they didn't give a number to call.

    Here is the link to the post: http://vboards.stratics.com/showthread.php?p=1355973#post1355973

    If you have multiple accounts you should be able to contact customer support directly and purchase the expansions for all of your accounts at once. As for a discount I haven't heard anything as of yet.

    Can I just pee in it? Or does the snow add some additional flavor going from hot to cold?

    If you have multiple accounts we highly recommend to purchase the expansion through the EA Store (http://eastore.ea.com).

    Players will be able to purchase as many as they wish through this option. Details on this will be provided on how to order more than 1 expansion at the EA Store. Once it has been added to the listing, which will be by September 8th.

    Lol, no kidding? I think it'd be stupid of EA not to recommend purchasing it.

    umm.. didn't know there was any other way. multiple accounts or otherwise.
     
  22. Chrissay_

    Chrissay_ Guest

    Many players thought that the only way to purchase the expansion was through UO Gamecodes. Which is why everyone is concerned about multiple purchases.

    We know how uogamecodes works. The EA store is an unknown quantity. Look at the questions concerned about the details of how the delivery will work. New expansions don't come along very often - people are anxious to be a part of the day 1 festivities, not spend the launch day twiddling their thumbs or wrestling with help lines figuring out where their codes went.

    ( I realize that stratics hard-core is an extremely skewed sample of all players, but at some point down the road, it would be nice to see a little more attention paid to making "meta-account" management easier )

    ( of course, this all assumes that the launch itself goes flawlessly :) )

    It's not that I think Gamecodes is the only way or place to purchase it... but for someone like me who's working most the time.... I am not able to call your customer service during your bussiness hours.... so I stuck with Gamecodes.

    Outside that I would prefer to be getting some kind of discount... for the purchase of 5 codes as before with many other expansions.... so just wondering if there WILL or WON'T be a 5 pack discount.... through Gamecodes.

    Umm, not really..most are wondering about getting a discount on multiple
    purchase. Any word from the marketing team or whomever is in charge of
    that? We are only 5 days from launch and also any idea when it will be
    available for purchase time wise?
