    Dear Dev, Brother and Sister...

    I cannot find word to express my feeling now. :sad3: Been a True die hard Lover of UO since day 1. (12 year Vet)
    Never stopped for one Moment of it, Play it everyday, Live with it, would die with it TOO !!!
    I enjoy alot about UO and all the great event. But in my 12 year of Ultima ONLINE.
    There has never been a event like this !!!!! (Good or Bad ??):(

    Finding the Cure for The Gargoyle (might just end up finding the Cure for us):bdh:
    Do you know how much work this require???
    First we have to gather the seed that allow us to grown sugar and vanilla
    That would require alot of farming and also to identify the right seed.
    Next we have to go through the period of growning the plant.(gardening)
    Login on everyday to water it and add potion (Keeping it in good shape for a good 14 day or so depend
    on your growning method of either using garden bed or fertile Dirt)
    Then We have to Kill Tera monster for the EGG
    We also need to kill Blight Slimes for the Slimes (Slimes is annoying at time)
    THEN we also need to kill Orc for the Raw Yeast (not every orc drop it)
    There has never been a quest that require so much work and time.
    A Cure can take up one of each material or 3 of certain material too.
    Then we have to slove the Healing Quest, which take time for cracking the right combination of material use.

    The whole process can be repeat alot of time, The catch was Once you donated a few.
    You just have to keep going and not stop. Due to the system they only reward the top few.
    When you see people doing it, it just telling yourself you have to go on or you will be left behind.
    Why they want it this way (I can never understand why make it this way)
    Come on, This is really alot of work and time.

    If the system WAS Tier 1 require 100 Cure, Tier 2 require 200 Cure, Tier 3 require 500 Cure and Tier 4
    require 800 Cure. At least we all could have a choose to judge if we can make it or not.
    Why leave so much unknown to it???

    Next is we support the event with tons of cure and hardwork. Tons of time spend on it.
    I feel if we look into your shoe as a designer. You will be happy that so many of us
    spend time on your event and you could be nice to reward all of us(15 annivasary).
    Most of us who play UO are adult by now. There is not much kids around I assume, All mature people
    who work their sock off in real life. They love this game for it rich Content and Game is suppose to be
    fun. This is DEPRESSING after the Day, Week and Months Spend on it.
    If I work in sale line, Customer is alway right too.

    Some Burning Question I have ?
    What is the Objective of a EVENT?
    What is the Objective of having this Reward system (you sure it call reward system or screw people system)
    What is the Objective of a Game ? (to have fun and create fun for people??)
    Both player donated and put in the same amount of work and time. Why is the outcome different??? (different as in player from different shard)
    Do you really want a outcome like this ???
    Is minority more important then Majority?
    Can our Voice be Hear and Answer ??
    Any Idea how many Endless heart is broken now???
    This is 15th Annivasary right ?? (suppose to showcase the best of UO as it reach the milestone of 15th wonderful year)
    Going through all of this, is this really how the outcome is suppose to be???

    There is still time to change it and make it a wonderful experience for everyone.(there is never too late)
    Solution can be for example:
    Every account who take part in it can get one sleeves with a lighter hue color of it.(this is to Cure 90% of the poor human who did not get it)
    So making the orginal quest sleeves a rare one due to the color of it.(this is not to screw those who have it)
    It just a sugguestion as I am sure there is tons of good idea out there too.

    We should all Voice out even though some of us did not try, because they know this might happen.(We need to voice out because we CARE,this is a Game we pay & LOVE)
    I strongly believe in the Dev and the people who run the game. I believe they READ and CARE Right??:please:
    I hope you can look into this and take a look at the outcry here !!!
    It take years to build reputation and fans base, seconds to break, forever to repair.
    There is still time and solution out of this (I believe When there is a Will there is a WAY) !!!!
    We should United together, Maybe gather on a certain day and time, at the fishing Village
    and show them we want ANSWER!!!(get a touch and get ready to nuke the fishing village)

    Last but not least, I normally dun post much but I am sure you can see why i am doing this because of the time I have put with my hand and eye. Not to mention a few day of little sleep.... (seeking a Cure now)
    If you feel what I feel or agree on certain part of what I say. Please put a Click on like so we can give them
    a figure of how many of us are bleeding now.

    Thank you and May UO love us as much as we love it !!!!:please:

    Well this Event was not a "must do it", everyone could decide if they want to spend all the time for it. The Infos for the Rewards ect. for this Event was written as it started. So there is no big deal, cause none can change it anymore. We like to say in germany "Der Drops is gelutscht" ... which means that Event is done ... next please! ;)

    or "Wir müssen alles daran setzen, dass so etwas nie wieder passiert" which means we must ensure that this does not recur.

    I for one will never compete in an event such as this..when people turned in 15 cures were given the same reward as those who turned in 300..that was a bit lame

    Oder wie der Friedl Nietzsche zu sagen pflegte: "Alles Geschehen aus Absichten ist reduzierbar auf die Absicht der Mehrung von Macht"

    Drauf geschissen, ist nur ein Spiel, ist meine persönliche Meinung dazu - aber die Amis leben in einer anderen Welt...mich wundert nix mehr lol

    depends on which shard he plays on.
    not all came online at the same time, nor in the same parts of the world.

    ohhhhhhhhhhh snap!

    September 1997 was the last day of the original beta test. Ultima Online opened its doors to the public in 1998 the game expanded and the number of users reached over 100,000 worldwide. In 1999, the game expanded to Japan in January, to Europe in May, and to South Korea in July.
    In 2000 the game expands to Australia.

    First, I understand your frustration......But, the one thing where UO has been unwaveringly consistent, is

    Grind Grind Grind Grind Grind Grind pancake Slap

    All of us who have played since the late 90's are not surprised... we read and slowly shake our head.

    Well having been caught up in the eternal grind of City Loyalty when it commenced at the beginning of the year (I could actually start it now and finish it in a few days). I have thankfully not participated in this one at all. That experience was enough to put me off this kind of quest permanently. IT WAS NOT MY IDEA OF FUN. Being forced to work every day to counter decay was ridiculous, whoever designed it that way has a lot to answer for. Reading the posts regarding this one has only reinforced my decision to avoid this type of event in future. Especially the events that can be scripted and are destroying the UO I know.
