Over the last 2 months, I have debated my future with UO & Siege. The Siege players have been very supportive over the last 8 years. When I have actually played UO, it's been Siege. There is no better rule set to truly enjoy the UO experience. Last spring I took some time way from Siege & UO for several months. I returned and found that fire for gaming that makes us all want to play the game. I have also watched many of those that made it enjoyable leave for other activities. And again find that the fire is gone. I too have come to a point that I must change focus. I have never been much for PvP. Frankly I suck at it. I found more enjoyment being a vendor & supplier. I have wonderful full time job and my UO sales has always been a hobby and a source for my golf habit. Over the last few months, Siege activity & sales have decreased to a point that I can no longer justify the time & resources to continue supporting Siege to the level I believe it requires & deserves. Thus, I will be liquifying my assets on Siege & will be closing most of my accounts. Effective today, 1/1/08, my xsharding service is closed. I'll be posting several auctions for items and within several weeks I'll be listing several accounts for sale. I wish everyone the best. The player base of Siege deserves no less. Thank you for your support.
