Ok Perhaps it is time to consider UO going Free-to-Play. I know the DEV's have said NO. But I been thinking we REALLY need to get folk to try UO again. We all know how addicting it can be and how much fun it is. But if no one will give it a try it's rather hard to get folk to look at UO. So at one time I thought they could build a Free to Play shard.... but my thought is maybe they don't have to. So what if they allowed F2P and it was very limited. Such as bank only holds 50 items. Backpack only holds 50 items. They only get 3 characters or can only play 1 char on 3 shards. Total of 3 characters period. They can only be in Tram. Can't go to Malas or Tokuno or Ter Mur or Fel. They can go to the lost lands... and Illsh. This gives them plenty of dungeons to check out and all but they can't get in trouble. They can't be awarded artifacts outside of New Haven Quests. So doing the new Despise would not benefit them much... They can't use powerscrolls, SoTs or SoAs. Their accounts will NOT age.... though it will credit them later if they become a paid account for time played. They can not be traded with. Just like newbs you can't give them stuff. They can't stack anything more than 1k except gold. They can not own a home unless they pay 20 bucks then they can have a 8x8 max home with only 500 storage. They can not friend or co-own anyone to their home. They can not be friended or co-owned to anyone elses house either. They can't have vendors. They can not turn in or get BoDs. They do not receive gifts. They can not mine or lumberjack anything other than plain wood and iron ingots. They would not have any expansions so they can't use the new boats, get the new fish or do the new fishing quests. They can not enter Heartwood. This would get folk into the game..... get them to see the game, learn much about the game.... hopefully get hooked and then pay for an account. This would also keep them from being worth anything to scripters and such because they can't trade or anything they wouldn't be able to get much of anything worthwhile. So they can't do much to harm the already tragic economy... I'm sure folk could use them to farm cheap wood and ingots but it would be a pain to trade with them. Since they would basically have to drop whatever on the ground to give you stuff and vice versa. But I think it would give folk enough of a taste to want to pay to play. Any thoughts?
