    It's a Publish, thats all I know and I'm pretty sure its only going to Origin atm. I play there and the thing came on my screen saying prepare for a publish, or something like that. Hopefully someone will know by the time I get back home from work. Would be nice if they are doing the Magincia thing or opening up the rest of Ter Mur.

    26MB for the EC. I hope it includes all the bug fixes they were talking about in the HOC... and I hope it's a LOT!

    They didn't put it on Test Center first, so I'm thinking it's nothing new. Is this to melt all the snow and disable holiday goods?

    I don't know about you guys, but when they do a publish like this they should give us a warning on Stratics or something. I do wonder what they are up to, too.

    You can still get holiday stuff (I tried after the patch on some chars on Drachenfels that I hadn't logged on yet). There's a note on the Japanese site that says you can decorate your Christmas tree until January 15th, so I suspect that's when the gifts will be turned off too, but don't know for sure. Last year, the last date you could claim the tickets was January 19th. (http://vboards.stratics.com/showpost.php?p=1014008&postcount=67)

    If it was Publish, it also included a patch. Too big a patch to just be a publish to remove holiday stuff, in my opinion. Maybe some content for MLK day! ;)

    Okay, but seriously, nothing from their Twitter or reg Herald site, :/

    I have the same.
    I patched up after trying to switch characters, and getting errors on login ("An error occured while communicating with Origin" or something tot hat effect), and I'm still getting the same error after patching.
    They nerfed me :sad4:

    Still nothing on the UOHerald about a patch, publish or the login servers being down.

    My classic client patched nearly two hours ago. Pretty sad state of communication not to have something up by now.

    I patched and was able to login fine all afternoon. This is new. I think the login servers are having issues or are being worked on.

    Not too early to be sticking in the Valentine's content - after all, most stores started selling EASTER candy on December 26, for this coming Easter...

    That was a hot fix for some bugs.

    fixed ability to make 150 all stat characters, have skills over 120, and manipulate skills.

    I just checked and it was fixed. I kind of doubt that they will post it beyond bug fixes. they never say the bigger exploit fixes. glad the 170 skill archers are gone.

    So all the peeps using and exploiting the bugs know what was in the patch but none of the rest of us do. Nice.

    - Good to hear...
    I was hoping it might have something to do with Cal's recent statement regarding thwarting some cheaters...
    and so it seems to have been, although I still have hopes that it is more encompassing than this.

    Glad I never patch unless I have to.
    If they ever do something special for MLK day I quit. I draw the line at getting in game stuff for stupid holidays that have nothing to do with UO remotely. Christmas I can see, Halloween I can see, possibly easter. But MLK while the idea is great, its out and out ******** to close all government down for that. Same for all the other 'days' like Colombus Day and whatever else they got. Dumb.

    I was just being silly; obviously the crew isn't going to start MLK content. Anyway, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and Christopher Columbus both earned their days, and if you harbor some kind of resentment for either holiday or the government's attention to them, that's your opinion. Still, I'd suggest you do some research on the dates, you might appreciate the men a little more. At the very least, might learn their names. Something to do until Mythic releases actual new content ;P.

    Also on Orgin you can now buy the *skin tinge* to change the color of your char's skin if you dont like what you have now. First time I've seen it..maybe that was in the patch as well?:stir:

    http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=Hallowthanksmas

    Hallowthanksmas = Is the holiday celebrating the most wonderful time of the year, October through December. It is a time of great warmth, sharing, parties, and of great American commercialism. People complain about overlapping holidays, but why? The distinction between the three major holidays is only becoming less clear. Embrace it as Hallowthanksmas! It's certainly not going to disappear. It's a great excuse to eat, drink and be merry for three months straight! Each month is a celebration of its respective holidays, and seeing decorations and stores fully stocked should get our creative juices flowing; food, friends, parties and decorations are all a part of the holidays. Let's face it, Hallowthanksmas is here to stay.

    G.v.P I have no issue with MLK and MLK day. However I take great issue with Columbus Day.

    Why, you ask? As a person of Native American blood I feel that celebrating Columbus Day is celebrating the beginning of the end of Native American people and their cultures. Why on God's good, green earth would I want do something like that? Every year here in Oklahoma there is a organized silent protest by the Native American community. Me I just tend to ignore Columbus Day completely, I just don't acknowledge it.

    Each to their own I suppose, but thought you might be interested to see why some people take issue with Columbus Day.
