Don't know if this will help, but perhaps it will

    I had posted onto Gilfane's board how I learned to navigate the account management set up. I am reposting it here with the hopes that it might help some others.

    Go to https://accounts.eamythic.com/
    --- (a) Sign in using the EA Account boxes.
    --- (1) Use the email account that they have for your account(s). If you have used more than one email for your accounts, figure out which one you want to use. You might need to create an email address to use for this if you have more than 9 accounts.
    --- (2) Use the password you had with EA. If you can’t remember it, you can have them send it to you. They seem to have fixed the bug where it was emailing you in Chinese.

    Once you have been signed in, go to the LINK ACCOUNTS tab.
    --- (a) For the “Mythic Master Account Name” type in your UO account login name (that you use to get into the game) *but* you must add “_uo” onto the end of it – example: Fred_uo
    --- (b) For the password type in your usual “get into the game” password.
    --- (c) click CONTINUE
    --- (d) this will take you to a new screen. Click CONFIRM. (If you do not do this, it will not add the account.)
    --- (e) Rinse and repeat for each UO account you have.

    Once you have finished this, log out and then log back in. The accounts you have just “linked” should show up in the drop down box at the top. (It might do this without logging out, but I logged out just as a precaution to make certain it “took.”)
    --- (a) Click on the first _uo account in the drop down box. It should now show up on the SUBSCRIPTIONS page – below the Activate a Key, etc. buttons.
    --- (b) At this point, there will only be two buttons beneath your account info – “Change Password” and “Activate Key”
    --- (c) Click “SET DESCRIPTION” (which is up on the right at the top) – then click your browsers Refresh/Reload button. (If you do not hit the Refresh button, you will not be able to add your credit card info.)
    --- (d) Now you should see two additional buttons at the bottom – Update Renewal and Subscribe.
    --- (e) Click the SUBSCRIBE button. This will take you to a screen where you can choose how often you pay, etc., and enter your Credit Card information.
    --- (f) Give them the info needed and click the CONFIRM button.

    Do this for each of your accounts.
    The good news is that if you use the same credit card info for all of your accounts, you will not need to re-enter the information for each account.
    After this, you will get a mess of emails saying that you have 'subscribed' etc. It may *look* like they have just charged your credit card, BUT THEY HAVE NOT. Sending the 'ping' and collecting the money are two different things. Of course, if your account is actually due, they will take your money.

    And that's it. Far too many steps to be convenient. But if we can navigate through the multiple steps in an in-game Quest or a puzzle room, then look at this as another challenge. The way I looked at it, I was not about to be "defeated" by a poorly-designed account migration. And if you cannot link your accounts, please call them.

    Hopefully your post will help some folks wade thru the mess and successfully so.

    As for myself, I never was into puzzle rooms anyhow in UO.
    I prefer to simply go from point a to point b without ISSUES. lol

    Or at least have some gameplan where I CAN improvise and have that work awesomely well instead otherwise ........ I hang it up for folks that have more time to fool with nonsence or whatevers.

    Not defeated I just go my own way ....another WAY or elsewhere entirely !

    Sorta like flyin... flight is delayed or over booked,
    no biggie ! lol

    I ad lib a lot, I guess in my life and/or *game life*
    Hopefully I might get to play UO again, if not,
    I look at it more as their defeat and their lo$$,
    more than mine, at this point.
    Hopefully your post will help ME too to go thru this new migration mess.
    *waits for patch to continue patchin*
    Have to do that first, atm anyhow. LOL

    But then once upon a time
    I worked in *customer service* for several yrs.
    so I was taught and thus did the motto,
    customer service is job one
    we are out of our job !!

    Simple logic !
    Not us being defeated by this
    cuz in the end it is EA UO MYTHIC and crew,
    being defeated of revenue they can't get if we
    get blocked out and CAN'T get it all, to work right,
    in some 'working^functioning' simplified way, in many languages as their customers have, to get acct. migration to work,
    to continue to pay them, TO play.

    In the end it is not OUR problem per say, it is THEIRS.

    That was true once upon a time.

    Now, EA could drive out and kick your dog once a month and people would still throw their money at them, along with the new fees to have somebody come kick your dog. Anybody that complained about the dog kicking would be banned from the official forums.

    People without dogs to kick would be forced to purchase a dog to comply with recently passed mandatory dog kicking legislation that was attached to a "Don't kill puppies" bill.
