    How did that E-Mail about UO's not being mentioned on Mythic's main site go?

    http://www.mythicentertainment.com/

    For the moment I see Dark Age of Camelot and Warhammer Online: The Age of Reckoning, the latter of which is not yet released.

    It may seem like a little thing, but it's little things that add up to a bigger picture.

    Hi Galen,

    The Mythic site hasn't been changed much in a very long time, yes... it's overdue. The Mythic Store and Warhammer Online site both feature links to UO. Also the WAR newsletter has been including block ads for DAoC and UO for quite a long time. There are other pages buried around on Mythic's domains that have links to UO too.

    Has the web team (different than the UO team) done enough? No. Are they ignoring only UO? No, they need to update and include both UO -and- DAoC better than they are.

    Yes, UO being a full family member in the Mythic stable by being equally featured on the Mythic site should be done. But it's not that the web team hasn't done anything... they just need to do more. Lots more.

    Yeah, I know other parts of the Mythic site mention UO.

    They advertise the Town Halls. UO's listed on their navigation banner thingie, sometimes.

    They also have this interesting Press Release for DAoC wherein they boast of DAoC outselling UO:

    (this was of course long before EA bought Mythic).

    But I was talking about the main page. The first thing you find when you type "Mythic Entertainment" into Google. Or Yahoo. Or MSN Search.
