The ONLY thing ive seen in accordance to the next publish is that we're getting new "plants". WOOOO!! AWESOME!! HUGE!!! give me a break please. I understand the importance of adding non-pvp oriented material for the gamers who dont pvp out there, and i fully understand adding/taking out things in the game is extremly time consuming and hard considering the multitude of players out there all spamming the changes they want to see made. BUT after playing for close to 10 years and being thru just about every single publish/patch/nerf and w/e else has changed in that time i really find it hard to beleive that you could only bring out 16 new plants as the main change in a publish. GET REAL. There are a million and one differnt bugs/exploits/gameplay flaws that are being overlooked or just plain ignored. EVEN the new items that are introduced are lackluster and really uneffective in most cases of PvP. I.E. "Spring Cleaning" while at the start it was a very great idea that had much enthusiasm, the prizes themselves are ones that are just going to collect dust in a bag hidden in your house. Unless there is a plethora of bug/exploit fixes to go along with the plants in the next publish i honestly think that EA has just been wasting theirs and our time and interest in this game.(Of course im hooked on uo and probally wont quit until they turn the servers off) but nontheless i get more and more disheartened by the "attempts" to bring more interest back into the game. I MEAN COMMON!! PLANTS?!?!? WTF???? what i really want to know is if tinkerers will ever receive the long overdue runic system that almost every other crafting skill has?
