    Second question for people with experience with RTB: How does it affect house decay timers on inactive accounts? Do they reset to 90 days when RTB turns off as if you had paid? Do you need to log in during RTB to get the timer to reset?

    Not sure when rtb will be up but pretty sure rtb no longer renews housing. So if you are about to lose a house you'd have to pay.

    Actually I am kinda watching to see if it brings the timer forward in an uncomfortable way. If it affects it at all, it will affect it like this. It has been stated before that RTB accounts, like trial accounts, should not have housing. So, I am watching.

    why wouldnt it renew housing? i dont think the game account maintance at ea distinguishes between active because you pay for it and active as a freebie -- active is active is active

    I've not seen any official word about RTB yet. I would hope they send out emails and post on UO.com

    Wasn't RTB supposed to be active today with the new patch??:(


    We will be publishing Pub 86 to TC1 on Monday and to Origin and Izumo on the 18th.
    We are looking to have Pub 86 World Wide on the 24th! At that time Return to Britannia will be active as well!

    Also, didnt Bonny say they would be pushing mass-emails with details on RTB to every account that's been active within the last 3-4 years?

    They wont reset, as it is not a paid account.

    To answer everyone's question. No it isn't active. I just downloaded a bunch of patches, attempting to login, and it said my account is inactive still.

    The last RTB did NOT refresh houses.

    The glitch with houses being placed by rtb, never put them in idoc stages has been fixed. It will NOT refresh houses, as that is tied to uo account payment.

    You dont need a verification from a dev on that, just browse back 2 yrs - it didnt refresh houses that time.

    well i'm not placing a house in rtb, there's one there already.

    And since i don't know you or your expertise level on this subject your statements whether 'yea' or 'nay' do not help me. i still have to research it, or get an answer from someone who I feel confident knows the answer since the correct answer is of very particular concern to me.

    So while i appreciate your sharing, you are not who i am asking.

    Just pay for the account if you're that concerned about losing a house. Better to be safe rather than sorry and having to come here to complain that RTB didn't refresh your house.

    Well of course i understand that, but since i opened an account as a gift this month + some upgrades to it, as i thought rtb would take care of my refresh issues, my budget is a bit strained, so before i pay for those accts i would like to be certain rtb is not going to refresh them. So again, ty for your comments, but again - not particularly helpful.

    RTB is a free month to come rejoin the community! It is not free grab for the multi accounts anymore. Search and google what happend last RTB.

    They are restricted to lot of things, close to trial accounts... If they got a house, they got it - but they cant place a new one.

    Rewards are disabled etc...

    So take and give, I dont honestly care if you dont feel comfortable with my reply, but that how it is. RTB will not refresh houses, nor let you place any new ones.

    Sorry for your tight economic issue, but - it won't solve your refresh issue.

    RTB will not refresh houses, as houses are tied to account management. And, as it is with RTB - any legal account can log in. But it is NOT refreshing your account management as a paid customer...the timer still continue..

    Sorry.

    Sophi, you are only wanting someone to tell you what you want to hear. Sorry, this wont change the outcome.
    Good luck either way.

    The Day is over and we havent really heard one peep about RTB in any way, shape or form. Pretty frustrating hoping we can get a response because it was supposed to happen today.

    since the publish was pushed back wouldn't it make sense that the RTB was pushed back to match the publish release to production?
    that way all the people coming back can try the new stuff.
    my guess is for tomorrow when before the party happens with Lord Brit

    You should see a post with full pub 86 patch and publish notes, as well as details for RTB tomorrow! Keep an eye on UO.com. We apologize for the delay!
