I wonder if those sneaky devs are planning on doing a Shard of the Dead this year...
Supreem you are sneaky and down right despicable
Hmmm... I wonder as well!
OK my ears are opened???!!!???!!!??
Wow! Ya'll have been really busy!
Shard of the Dead + EC graphics update + Shame update + Arena testing = UO not quite dead.
Quite the hefty amount of surprise today, though the lack of communication is still an issue (IMO).
Just loggin in and got a really large patch
and there are some shards missin....
The plot thickens
I dont think I've been as happy with UO as this for a long time. So Supreem, whens the server getting turned on and what titbits can you throw into the den? ey ey ey
This is why I always start playing a lot more in the Autumn.
Friends, Sosarians, UO players. Today is a good day for our beloved game.
Yeah yeah thats all you're getting for the julius caesar speeches.
We are planning on opening it tomorrow evening in time for the Halloween weekend.... I'd love to give you some teasers but where is the fun in that?
my guess would be a no since last year it was used as a "test" for a classic shard, and well the classic shard is a no go.
***EDIT*** uuuuuupppssss posted at the same time
no instant kill weps this time plz
I wonder if someone will childishly cling to glass swords until they drive everyone off the shard.
Weird as there was nothing classic about the SOtD at all, so i doubt it was being used as a test for a classic shard.
If there are glass swords again please don't waste your time.
Seeing as its already on the character copy list, i'd guess they are. I'd rather we get awesome stuff somewhere we can keep it than on an time-limited test shard though.
I think i've always missed this. Time to change that this year
I hear it is spilling onto other shards too. Okay hoping.
The reason Shard of the Dead content is on a special shard is because we can do crazy stuff that you could never get away with on live shards. Also Shard of the Dead is done on our own time not during work hours. This means we get absolutely no time from QA (testers) to test our work. We essentially have to test our own stuff which means its generally going to be much buggier than content we release for our live shards.
Oh yea and don't worry there are no glass swords this year.
Plus I get to rock out a many bejeweled/sparkly/multi colored bikini!
We ARE getting fun dye tubs there right?
Thanks for the insight into shard of the dead Supreem. Much appreciated - shame you don't get any in work time for it though.
As much as I loved the killer pumpkins, so glad that isn't it. Question tho: How will Siege participate?
Does character copy not work on Siege for test shards?
nope or atleast it did not last i checked
Just copied a character for Shard of the Dead from Origin. Shard doesn't show on the list, but I did get the copy message.
Then I went to Siege and also Mugen and got the usual, "Can't copy a character while the warehouse is down" message.
Then I checked on Sonoma just to confirm character copy still works and it looked like I could make a character copy from there too if I wanted to.
So, my guess is that because of technical difficulties, it is still not possible to copy characters from Siege or Mugen to a test shard.
You guys do Shard of the Dead on your own time? I didn't realize that.
That's pretty awesome of you.
so nothing on our home shards ?
Wow, Thank you very much for Shard of the Dead - it's awesome & I luv everything about it. Great to share a special event of sort on 'common ground' with all. T'was/is a great opportunity to try out new skills and play styles in a monster and pvp environment.
Oh, and the stackable stat cakes - those are GREAT. If my chef could whip those up from the chocolatiering menu in the future ... how awesome would that be !!?? one for each of the current chocolate nub types
I know, I had 220 str and almost 200 dex at one point.
