According to the UO Japan site, in honor of the game's anniversary, several items will be sold for half-price at their game code store from October 19th through November 2nd. The sale will apply to the Rustic and Gothic Theme Packs, the High Seas Booster, the Captain's Bundle, the Stygian Abyss upgrade, and the 11th Anniversary Collection. ƒjƒ…[ƒXÚ× There have been times in the past where the Japanese players were able to take advantage of special campaigns/sales that weren't made available to players elsewhere. (The availability of the original ToT dyes to Japanese players a couple of times if they bought certain other items comes to mind.) Also, most of us who live outside of Japan are unable to try to use the Japanese gamecode store to order items (some people have figured out how to do it, though). So, my big question for the UO Team is whether or not this sale is going to be made available to everyone or just the Japanese players? And, if it is going to be made available to everyone else as well, why not announce it? The announcement was posted on the UO Japan site yesterday (10/17), but for the rest of us there hasn't been even one word about it posted. When things like this happen, it's really tempting to think that some people at EA are on a campaign to deliberately aggravate and alienate their customers who play UO!
