    This is a title from a Yanni musical. My Hero, a rags to riches world renowned composer and artist.
    Awesome musical on utube..Listen to it if you wish..Anyways.

    We are all here passionate about this crazy game. We have proven it by staying on through so many upheavals through the years..

    My question is : Is there a way we dedicated addicts can help bring in more subs?

    Also : What has EA/BS done in terms of advertising the game?
    What media have they approached/advertized on?
    How do we encourage EJ's to sub?
    How do we spread the good word about the game?

    Any thoughts appreciated.

    Nope, because this game has no appeal on the younger generations.
    You can bring back a vet for a couple of months, but you can’t convince a teenager to play “a sh*itty old 2d game with antique mechanics”

    Times have changed and sadly UO belongs to the past

    I always liked to board new players onto the game when I was more active. But Devs do everything to stop that. Nowadays I can't even take an EJ player to my private home to make him a 70s suit. IMO you are wasting your time fighting against the development team and a large amount of vets that don't want any new players to possibly share stuff with. I stopped picking up new players though since it's not worth the time and frustration the Devs put onto me. Good luck!

    The only advertisment I have seen in recent years was advertisment for a 3rd party gold seller on the official UO facebook page. Go figure..

    Ok if you're so paranoid that you can't set your house to public and let an EJ in, you're not exactly cut out to be a UO ambassador...sorry.

    A proper F2P experience would be start. But it needs to go hand in hand with a proper store concept. Right now there is little of interest to buy in the store. The whole thing is tailored to force someone coming for a F2P game into a Pay-to-play game. Good luck making that work.

    But it has been said countless times already. Broadsword wants it exactly the way it is at the moment :bdh:

    We have a new player on LS that is on EJ. It is ridiculous that they can't use BOD books and get colored resources. Because some vets think people script those.

    Anybody that has played a lot has all those resources. Who cares if someone can get BODs. The players themselves sell the BOD rewards too cheap. It is not because of scripting.

    EJ accounts should be able to do everything except own houses and have their bank hold 50 items.
