    So did somebody buy 100 Legacy tokens to resell later and break it?

    A big sale to get people to invest money in the game then announcing the games shutdown will not be a good PR move. Wouldn't encourage people to risk more money setting up in another EA game.

    Hopefully someone just yanked all the UO stuff by accident when shutting down the sale.

    Aye. I suspect this might be just an intern screw up when updating the sale.

    ...Actually, there was talk about Broadsword getting more control over the sales stuff if I remember correctly. Hopefully this is either a mistake that will soon be corrected, or part of the moving process and we'll be seeing an announcement soon. Don't panic!

    I still have $27 in my EA wallet while I decide on whether to get more soulstones or toss it into a few more Raised Garden Bed sets, hopefully the game still has a future, I've spent a couple hundred in the store this year I'd hate to see wasted.

    Shoot I'm hoping to keep on playing UO until I do the big log out.

    Deep Breath People. Communication has never been the current administrations strong point, other than Kyronix. With a Big Publish coming up including multiple focus groups it isn't the end. Considering the Fiasco with the Japanese store they would of had good reason to remove the store items until things were fixed.

    What you people expect some sort of communication in less than a day?!?! HA! I laugh at you!

    Seriously... never happen. We all know the track record yet you all just expect things to be like they should? Seriously? :coco:

    Did EA even tell them about the sell? Why isn't it on the UO's web site? What is COMMUNICATION?

    I notice you can still find DAoC one-, three-, and six-month game time codes on the Origin store. However, that's all you can find for DAoC. Does anyone know if you were ever able to buy anything else for DAoC from the Origin store?

    While this is probably just a hiccup or internal snafu, its going to look incredibly bad to subscribers until either BS makes a statement (don't hold your breath...) or the items are silently returned to Origin.

    On the other hand, this could mean the new UO/account management/item shop website that was supposed to go live last month is now "ready." However, turning one store off before the other is actually live is a poor business decision, as it tends to encourage Chicken Little-esque wild imaginings.

    Remember, this is UO and we're all mushrooms...we should be used to it by now. o.0

    Looking at that list a bit more closely, though, I kind of wonder how accurate it is. It doesn't list the Warhammer Online closure that happened on December 18, 2013. The only Warhammer item on the list is that "play4free" Warhammer Online: Wrath of Heroes title that was out (in open beta) for a year or so. However, it does list Ultima Forever's closure last year.

    Hopefully we'll find out more tomorrow (Thursday).

    These items will once again be available once we've had an opportunity to replenish the Origin store's stock of codes. We apologize for any inconvenience.

    See what we've done, sucked up all the codes, although I thought they were randomly generated. So our demand exceeded their expectations?

    My mind still can't get around the concept that the 'stock' of computer generated codes for an entirely online store can 'run out'..... it seems about as sensible as a company saying 'sorry, you can't download our software now because we ran out of it on the shelf'.:confused:

    Incidentally - the concept that they simultaneously 'ran out of codes' for every one of the items on the Origin store, at the same time... is just as crazy. Have they actually changed the format system for all their codes to stamp on the 'fake' ones out there, perhaps - or it that just too optimistic of me, and it's just the usual bumbling going on?

    My guess is there are say ..... 100 codes.... they give Origin 100 working codes... everytime someone purchases something one of the codes is given and assigned to that particular item... therefore when the 100th item is purchased then "all" items are out of stock.

    you just had to come in and ruin a perfectly good 'the sky is falling' thread with your 'logic' didnt you!
    i would imagine that working for Broadsword on a night like this is much like being a kindergarten teacher, no?
    "no, the game is fine, yes it will still be here tomorrow, no everything is fine you guys dont need to worry in fact we are putting out a expansion here right away and even have a focus group testing it, Nabin stop eating the glue"

    That certainly seems to be how it works, but if so, someone seems to be working to a 'digital copy' of the systems that stores had back when UO came out, and rather needs to catch up with the ideas of the last decade or so - internet, online sales and computer generated codes being made available 'on demand' rather than someone keeping a virtual "stock of them"... this technology stuff can do some impressive things nowadays :D

    I think the reasoning is to combat key generation BS of folk pretty much stealing the items and people getting ripped off ... this is to combat duping of keys my guess.

    I'm sure it has something to do with not having too many keys out there that folk can mimic? I don't know the correct wording for it but you know... it's not good for the game or folk who buy stuff legitimately.

    Though I agree the system is in DIRE need of updating and well I wish it was in other hands. As it is I almost hate to buy anything from there. But being limited to buying one at a time is just plain stupid. I have several accounts and if I wanted to give each account a new soulstone... well that would take a lot of unnecessary hoop jumping.

    Yep, I mentioned earlier I hoped this was actually part of them changing their systems, and formats, for generating keys for things - I don't really believe it is, since they are usually hopeless about shutting down the 'external' sellers of game items, but I can hope they might finally be starting to get a grip.... too late for me though, bu it would be good for the remaining folks if they actually did clean up the issues the game has, on so many levels, and 'illegal' codes would be a start - but of course only a start.....

    Sadly I think the number of Tokens out there unused but claimed is probably greater than anyone realizes.

    I often wonder what it would be like if we could all see duped items clearly. If somehow duped items could be tagged in some way... almost scares me what each of us might find in our possession...

    Makes you wonder.

    This is actually quite funny. They did manage to run out of codes in an online store ( which is quite a legendary achievment itself ) and nobody did notice it? So UO is financially so well off that nobody looks for that and no automated system is in place to do that.

    I am crossing my fingers that they also take the time to add the missing items to international stores when they are "restocking" the codes at Origin.
    It has been 4 years and no Stygian Abyss to be found in Brazil store. And no King's Collection outside North America as well.
