    What are you looking forward to the most as we approach Ultima Online's 15th Anniversary? These are some of the items that are discussed by the community and the developers. If the option you are looking for is not above, select the one closest to it. The last option means that you don't have any expectation whatsoever. The very same poll is also on uoguide.

    I picked website update and return of MyUO, although everything on the list (except the last option, of course) would certainly be nice to see for the anniversary.

    Kind of sucks with GuildWars 2 coming in just over a week and MoP on the 25th of september UO will get lost in the shuffle =(

    such a wasted opportunity to give this game some much needed exposure.

    High resolution artwork, but don't think this is coming for the 15th anniversary.

    Second would be the MyUO launch.

    Better ingame music, inspired by the Ultima 7 - Original Sountrack.

    New sounds like thunder that everyone on my block can hear!! That would be nice I can see them running every time I cast a spell. HAHAHHAHH

    Like bug sounds also or the place you are maybe like swamp sounds.. I live in the swamps. Also sounds of walking in water or on sand in grass. Do they have that stuff? I noticed in the EC I can not hear the fire works wand would be nice to have sound with it. New waves added and storms and lightning that can kill you if you get hit by it. I think almost all the stuff in the main list also.

    I'd tick them all, But most important to me: Improving communication, then getting new players and then the bug fixes early next year.

    Only if we can move our chars/accounts there. If not, better keep UO1 alive. Dunno whether I would want to quit it...

    Increased meaningful communication about the future of the game. This would include revealing all the upcoming content (sans arc fiction) to ensure the playerbase actually wants it - a large focus group would be a good idea.

    Announce plans for a shard wide vendor browsing system that gives item info, prices, and a button to click to take you there. No item can be resold at a higher price once bought from a vendor.

    They missed a huge opportunity with the star wars game initially selling over 1.5 million copies. Why not use it to promote an old game (or games if you add in DAoC too)? You know a lot of former UO players would have bought the game.

    You mean Ultima Online Forever?

    Jokes aside, looking forward to information about the high resolution graphics and the UO.com relaunches to help bring in more players, both old and new.

    I said attracting new players because if they got new players they would get more money for the rest! (in theory)

    Catch-22. You can't attract new players without things that grab their attentions - high resolution graphics, a functioning website that looks like somebody cares about it, etc.

    Improved communication would be nice. SWTOR just dumped additional information about changes and new content for like the second or third time in a couple of weeks.

    UO on the other hand, we can go a couple of months without hearing about what is being worked on, or if anything is being worked on. On the official Warhammer forums, Kai said the dev team doesn't say much because they have nothing worth mentioning. When are the devs going to snap out of this silent treatment of us?

    1. Balance! ( so there's more than 3 templates that people play that are actually effective. )
    2. Bug fixes (it really sucks having to incorporate bugs into your game play. Just make this stuff work....)
