i was at work today, and it was slow at work. had a new partner as well, young kid. we where relaxing at the fire hall and he got out his laptop and loaded up a game, i looked over and i was pretty impressed by the graphics, so he started giving me the layout of the entire game.... you know how we all do that. This game is that new Star Wars game that EA and Bioware have out. that got me thinking.... thats the same people that own UO. so hes showing me around the game and what they do and such and it hits me.... this game has stuff in it that we have been SCREAMING for for years! why do they get it and we dont!!!! they have auction thing built right into the game! no having to use some outside persons personal site to trade stuff or sell stuff anymore. they have companions! they DONT MINE RESOURCES! they hire dudes to work for them and they tell them what to go do.... and they do it! it would be like hiring a miner and then telling him to go mine for you.... and he would! or go get ya BODs and fill them for ya! they've taken the grind out of being a mule!!!! i was just in shock. its like they took the stuff we have wanted for years and rolled it into their new game and left us out in the cold. give us some of the love.... dont forget about us.... your old yet faithful first love! we like auction stuff and companions too ya know!
