There is something I am missing, obviously. I'm not putting the call out to my old guildies until I know the thing is going to work as expected.
Woo! finally a real advertisement! Thank you Broadsword
It worked for me in all but one old account, but only on the CC
The Avatar was a blacksmith in the ad? I don't get it.
The blacksmithing thing was part of one of the original advertisements for UO in 1997 if it's the one I'm thinking of, so the ad is basically targeting players from pre-trammel hoping they will want to re-live their memories with RTB. If ya notice, the skill gain went to 100.0 , which was the original cap on skills instead of 120.0. Back then blacksmithing was by far the #1 most sought after skill since they were the only one's who could make valuable GM armor.
I think Broadsword and the DEV team is doing a great job. Thank you all, it's one step at a time.
Interesting history lesson, thanks. I was thinking of the Avatar as more a warrior than a crafter, going back not only pre-Trammel but pre-UO to the Ultima series.
I think they need to add a marketing team. Or person.
Or an intern, or a volunteer, or a trained monkey. Just someone, literally anyone will do at this point lol
Ok I want a company car, expense account, credit card, and a Secretary that looks like Megan Fox.
Now I am on the payroll I am taking a late lunch. Forward all my calls too Norrington.
Eh pretty poor advert seems very cut and paste oh well
It's better than nothing
It's probably the first time I've seen any advertisement at all regarding UO.
So cool... finally things get in motion...
With the title of Welcome Back, Avatar, I thought it was more to do with the movie Avatar. Poor choice of words me thinks
Dear Mr. Moriaty, that is an EXCELLENT choice of words, if you know the Ultima-history. Avatar is one of the keywords of more than 25 years of RP-history and it was coined by Lord British. In Ultima Offline you have been greeted with the words "Welcome Avatar" everywhere. So, true connoisseurs are happy about this choice of words, because it reflects the very essence of the game ;-)
...and it is funny, by the way!
opening i was like sick!!
then the font hit..
Good idea but RtB only goes back 3 years I read here on Stratics. Surely at least one of my older accounts can't be bothered to become active.
Heheh, nice little add. Title of the video is brilliant. I can imagine it awakens something that has slept for a long time inside..well, few people. ;p
I'd like it well if this song actually played in UO once more..
Great video !
Blacksmith were the most respected and trusted avatars in the early years.
And they were soooo easy to kill when they went mining. Fantastic times!
Well it seems that they aren't welcoming back ALL the avatars if they are restricting RTB to the last 3 years. Pity...
I bet, its because of the Account Management System...
Looks like you are right Eaerendil!
