    SA is awsome and new players and old seem to be trickling back in. From looking at my guild roster we have about 20-40 toons on per day.

    imbueing is great as you can design your own jewels and armour.
    you can tailor each piece to exactly whatever skills and things you are currently using.
    soul stones now have no timer so you can switch to whatever template you want to at any time/day.

    The new SA content is the best content in the game and they added alot of new quests type things to spicen it up.

    The new additions are probably more tailored to crafters, PvM and event players and the imbueing is good for all.

    Yeah I am pissed about that. What a way to reward their hard work in developing what has to be the best expansion to date ( I qualify that statement by comparing other expansions inability to get the players out on to all the new land masses they kept adding, sure they added skills, necros, paladins, ninjas, bushido warriors, but nothing to get the players interested in using all of the world available. Now there is a point to PvM, all level monsters, as their loot is used for unravelling and ingredients ).

    I heard they let Draconi go! If that is true, this game is going down! ( They wont pull the plug, but the remaining staff may not have the same vision of what is UO, they will inch closer and closer to the competitions style until you cannot recognize UO from the rest of the games on the market. )

    You went from a WoW version of DAoC (Warhammer) to another WoW cookie cutter, fairies with wings! (AION.)


    Why don't you try playing the only game out there that represents Siege Perilous and the genre of MMO, Ultima Online started?

    Can you dl the game and just pay for your subscription or do you have to purchase the game and pay for a subscription?

    We may never know exactly how many went, but the 40% is of Mythic staff as a whole, not UO staff. The more positive rumor-mill says UO was hit less than any other game in the EA stable.

    We need to bear in mind that Sakkarah is proven to still be around. She is not only a developer, but a player, an ex EM and moreover, apparently, a pretty accomplished pvper.
