    I AM! :thumbup1:

    Really looking forward to the new booster, and I can't wait to play it! I'm not really sure if I'm gonna be good and kill pirates, or bad and raid merchant ships - think I'll give both a shot for a while & see which I like better.

    Not really looking forward to training up Fishing another 20.0 points, but I'll do my best not to go crazy.

    I am looking forward to the new fish and the lobster pods. Can't wait to fight the new bosses too. :lol:

    And it is EA, for cash they normally release on time, even when a few bugs are in it.

    Thank you so much. Now I have to dry my keyboard off and wipe my eyes.:thumbup1::lol::thumbup1:

    There is no bonus that I know of. Already installed the codes and waiting for it to start.

    Pre-order? Who said and why did we miss it?

    For real, there was a bonus for pre-ordering? I would/will be annoyed if i missed out on a pre-order bonus.

    PRE-ORDER ?....I can't even find out where to order it from.

    It's not on uogamecodes.

    By the way.... just the beta was hours downloading...and then fails untill I
    turned off win. 7 firewalls & diabled my webroot anti v./spyw. and started over.

    If everyone is goinging to be trying this tomorrow ...it's goning to be a big mess.

    WHERE CAN I GO TO PRE-ORDER ?

    Well i hope the patch they deploy is not so big.
    Maps should mostly stay the same except the one they make the boss fight.
    Also they need to patch the new graphics, but should not be more than 100 MB I think

    It was up on UOGamescode and then was taken off for some reason. I got lucky and got my 2 upgrades mainly for the storage upgrade. Waiting for the 12th when they turn it on.

    They could postpone the release though for a week and reopen the Testserver again

    Not sure what difference it makes, Your hardly lucky either as you haven't yet got anything no? Just 15 dollars lighter. The shards will probably go down for a couple hours tomorrow to give the rest of us time to buy it.

    So you take my post out of context because I was responding to them about postponing the release and then you state that they are taking down the shards on the 12th. Tis strange that even the day before a release that you can not get an upgrade code and it was only up (for some reason) for a short time on UOGamecodes. UO needs to let us know what is going on with the release of thier booster. Is it or is it not going live on the 12th and put it back up on UOGamecodes. We have never had to wait till the day something goes live to get the code. All I am saying that for those people that spent thier money (if it does not go live on the 12th) on something that is postponed (with nothing being said by EA) at such a late date should have something done.

    This is as bad as Cal saying my bad about the 13th anv. and giving an answer that has no date applied to it. We will get to it when we can type of thing.

    Only reason I wanted to pre order it was so I did not have to keep money set aside ! and so I just knew I had it!

    This is a booster, new territory, Who says it needs to be pre ordered? What is wrong with buying it on the day? They said it will launch on the 12th, Wait till then.

    Just hope you are right and UOGamecodes can handle the load. Would hate to see them have probs getting the code on the 12th.

    I was little excited because Fisher was still at 98.2 this morn - but after hours of drugery I am now GM Fisher - and a lot more excited:)


    ... enthusiasm wanes as I see there is no way to order booster. That means in addition to download time, I will also have the account management traffic jam to deal with ...

    Is there fiction for this? Or just BAM! Pirates and lobsters and new ships!
    I would've loved a new cut scene. Oh wait.. no cut scenes in EC. I guess I'd settle for a new login screen with that awesome poster of the High Seas.

    Technological breakthrough!

    Live from Jhelom we managed to steal the secret of lobster catching.
    On other news: Mad bored wizards found new species of fish in dungeons while eager fishermen found new species of edible fish in the seas.
    Newsflash: A big Orcish ship has sailed out of the orc fort in Cove and threatens the seas, the marines of Tokuno, Britain and TerMur sent out their fleets as well.
