    I have played UO for 14 years now...I may just quit after seeing this. I can not believe EA would do this to Ultima... I am literally disgusted... please tell me I am not alone in this.

    Keep an eye on the Herald for more information about our plans for Pub 76 and beyond.

    must be the year of the panda... reminds me of the Mists of Pandaria expansion for WoW that's coming out in just a few months. Exact lookalike pandas imo.

    It would make a lot more sense if they had done this on the first of April...

    Not everyone has the time to sit and read every thread. Obviously I made an error and forgot April is here already. Go pet your cat or something.

    True, though it would also be pretty see-through. ;)

    I don't know honestly. I would not put it passed EA to try and copy some ridiculous idea off of WoW. Lets hope EA April fooled me. However, I doubt it.

    Ivor_MacGregor if they were going to copy something from WoW to try and help UO, there are half a dozen things I can think of before they start getting into races.

    Actually Orcs as a race would be one of them.

    That's what I was thinking, too. Lots more traditional fantasy races to choose from: orcs, gnomes, dwarves, etc.

    True enough sir. However, I think you can actually make your character appear like an orc already in the character creation menu. Or at least you can in EC. But I get your point loud and clear. Orcs should have been a race long ago. I remember pre-trammel ShadowClan Orc (catskills) days. Those bunch would have loved it.

    April Fools Day is on Sunday this year, likely no one will be in the offices that day. They could have been posted it Monday, but that too would have been reason for more malaise.

    Relax people, untie the knot.

    Let's keep this silliness to one thread. The other one is funnier.
