    I like the previous gold poll post but even more curious if we talked about net worth which includes everything, gold, property, items etc...

    I wouldn't have a clue. 9 accounts holdings on Siege, GL's and Lake Austin consisting of 1 Castle, 2 Keeps, Several 18x18's, a House on a Private Isle, one Luna Property, and several "rares" ... however I don't count any of that in wealth.

    My wealth is in friendships and community. And it's priceless.

    Exactly well said! I have never played UO and been concerned how much gold I have its always been the people! all together I have maybe 5 million - 10 million in gold and item wise well several hundred million I am sure!

    PS I was concerned when i first started until I had enough to by my first 7x7

    Tis worth the freindship it as given and as gave...and to be fair....and in truth ...net gold value for everyone in the game is actually zero......or will be.....when the lights finally fade and we enjoy the last night party b4 the UO servers are turned off for good....it will happen one day..... hopefully ....not for many years to come...but harbour that thought .....

    No Idea! and not much idea how I could possibly calculate it. What would be more interesting would be what others think you are worth as a person and a player and I don't mean monetary worth.

    Oh come on all this mushy "its about the people" Smoot needs to fill up his moneypit, and decorate the gold pile with shiny pixels! GIVE SMOOT ALL YOUR GOLDS AND SHINEYS!

    joking aside, uo Is about the people you meet along way. in that process, which for many is over a decade long its hard not to build up a nice little stash of uo stuff that has alot personal meaning even tho its pixels. i still even keep some of my old "pvp" suits (they are worth at least a bil im sure :p) to just remind me of what i had fun in when im jealous of some legendary artifact.

    How does this not make sense? EA at any given minute could close us down. Our pixels do not matter to the bottom line of EA.

    Our net worth is what we believe it is. EA can pull the plug at any moment and then what we believe is shattered. All gone.

    Is there any real difference between a player's UO net worth and their Neopets net worth? Come to think of it, Neopets might look better, considering how much real money people spend on UO over the long haul.

    "Lights out" is the final answer for everyone. No matter if they play video games or not. I see this thread taking some sort of moral high/low road when the question was kind of simple. But the simple questions are the most fun I guess.

    The whole game is owning pixels for everyone. Else we would be in some chat room making friendships and memories.

    Truth is... sacrifice, kindness, greed, love, hate... are all illusions. There isn't a single act that was performed by any living creature (throughout the entire history of all living creatures) that wasn't acting purely in its own self interest. And that is our common bond. Self serving little brats... all of us. It is the way nature built us. And we are its greatest hope.

    But back to the OP. Prices jump so much in this game. I gotta tell you I have no idea what I could get for everything. I think maybe 10 bill. So I clicked the little 1-10 bill thinger.

    Not only do I have no idea what the 'values' in UO gold of the pretend pixel' items' I have might be, I don't even care enough about that to try find out.

    I appreciate that for some, it's part of their fun to see the 'wealth' they have as an absolute number, or in comparison to what others have - harmless, enjoyable if you like that sort of thing, so no objection at all to it - but it has no appeal or interest to me.

    Exactly I love playing uo and hope its lasts a long time, but it doesn't matter what ones worth is. Once Uo is over its over at the end we all will be at zilch in items, and gold. That is the end game of uo we all win or maybe it should be lose since will be losing everything.

    Think most use this formula...

    YOU simply count number of EM items/Server birth items... in your possesion ....multiply[x] it....by rolling two dice [1-12] infront/ but ending in 00,000,000 ...then simply add[+] all the gold on ''xxx'' number of vendors used to store it .....and if u have a luna house ....add[+] by rolling another 2 dice [1-12] infront/ but ending in 00,000,000.... then if your still not happy multiply[x] it .....by rolling another 2 dice number [1-12] ...untill you ''are happy''.....

    Thankyou for reading [whatever] :next:

    I would like to see the number of people who regularly contribute to this forum compared to some semi reliable estimate of the number of people who play UO (if that is even remotely possible) to see how our perceived average profile compares with the average player.

    Honestly, this thread is nonsensical. It is one thing to ask about gold in stock - but another thing to estimate a net worth. The value of items depends on what people are willing to pay.

    (1) I would never pay 175 mil for a small soulforge. or 100 mil for a slither. For me, these items are worth about 80 for the forge and 70 for the slither.
    (2) I would never pay bazillions for an ugly EM-deco-crap-item, just because it is rare. To me, items need to be useful. So, value of a jade-crap-statuette to me is exactly 0 gold pieces. Same for 99 % of all rares.
    (3) The worth of stuff depends on the shard you are playing. Brainless folks pay bazillions for crap on Atlantic - you wouldnt get 10 % of the gold on Drachenfels, for exmample. No idea what my Luna house would be worth on ATL - but not much on my home shard DF. And: Who cares?
    (4) 300+ Million for an etheral tiger? L O L
    (5) 1.5 Billion for a castle? L O L
    (6) 1 year ago, nice SSI-jewelry went up to 1 billion and more - now has landed much lower...
    (7) Remember Luna Vendors with Luck Garbs for 90 and more millions? Where are we now? 45? L O L

    Hence, you cannot estimate the net worth of something like pixels traded on different markets. Watch the auctions on the trade forums - there you can see that one day stuff sells for TONS of gold and another day, the same stuff sells for nearly nothing...

    And in the end: Who cares! It may have a sense to discuss about how much gold you need to play this game nowadays in a way that enables you to keep up with others and to meet the requirements of new mobs. So, discussing gold values may make some sense. But this thread looks like "penis comparison" to me.

    Who has the longest?

    :D

    Aha, just as I thought. Conclusion: extrapolation of poll results from this forum, inhabited mostly by veteran players (whom I appreciate and respect) to ''average players'' is of limited validity. Have I said this enough times now for us to be more precise in our conclusions?

    yeah i was busy enough just playing the game for years before i ever bothered to ready silly stratics forums :)
    so no doubt mostly all the newer players who are still building characters, homes, establishing themselves werent part of this poll.

    No... Playing has always been more important than gold to me... I'll never forget how hard it was to get 550k to buy my first house!
    But I like being a rich old man now.. at least in Ultima!

    Sitting at at about 100 mil not counting stuff.. not that rich I know but enough for me.
