    Out of curiousity how many people have actually re-opened accounts in other games...WoW, AoC, DAoc?
    I know that myself and a few guildmates have already switched to WoW because of this unaddressed lag issue with UO.

    A Bit of Warhammer and a little Eve as time permits.

    I would be back to UO if there was a proper client to play with.

    It IS cool if you can swim or look up and see stars and the 2 moons at night ;)

    In UO you can only look at badly made floortiles *sigh*

    As I said before: If UO had proper graphics it would be top !
    Warhammer is not Wow but it gets boring after a while - No 360° playstyle possible like in UO........

    To be honest it is very unlikely that i will come back to UO with its current graphics.Shame really :(

    Now that sounds interesting.

    Sandbox AND good graphics - Great

    I allready know a SF-Game that has both but the fantasy-genre is DIRLEY in need of this !!

    I saw this thread posted at the wow statics page:

    Re: Lot of Down Time

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Well, yesterday was normal maintenance, then they had an issue with in-game mail not working, so they went back down to fix that and still weren't up by the time I went to bed at about 11pm EST.

    Today they went down to fix a bug where people could buy PvP gear for free or drastically reduced costs, but then had a "database issue" and we have no ETA on when things will be back up.

    I've been playing UO... I haven't found another game that's as awesome.

    I've also been playing that tom clancey End war game on my DS. Logging equal time in both games.

    I've been playing WoW. I have been periodically popping into KR to download the patches to keep everything up to date. I am not giving up on UO I have too many memories invested in the game. I have no intention of closing my accounts, but I guess I am still on vacation from UO.

    lol what's sad is how true it is.

    Well yeah... All the games worth playing are on PC, or are on 360/PS3 AND PC. Really the only GOOD exclusive on the 360 right now is Fable II, which will probably go to PC eventually, and PS3 only has MGS4 for now.

    And console versions of PC games are usually horrendous compared to the PC versions. Take Valve's Team Fortress 2, Portal, and Half-Life 2. SO much better on the PC.

    Haven't switched to any other game (though I sometimes miss EQ2), but I play Xbox when I have time. Someday I'll get around to finishing GTA4.

    I would never play another online game besides UO. All the rest are the same crap with a different theme. Consoles? Please. After 2 years they become obsolete and need to buy the new one. Just a waste of money.

    PCs? Please, after six months they become obsolete and you need to throw another $1-2k at them. Just a waste of money.

    LOL. Then you don't know how to buy a computer. I get 6 to 10 years out of a computer before needing to change anything.
