There have been several UOA threads lately but I didn't quite notice them until my own UOA became disabled. I'll be the first to admit that my ~$12 investment has become a serious crutch for me, especially when it comes to crafting. Not even the Enhanced Client can replicate some of the UOA abilities, such as being able to craft specific items in groups. Without UOA, programs that rely on UOA may cease to function (I really don't know). That's good if you're anti-cheat, and bad if you use UO Cartography. I think map will continue to work even if you don't have an active UOA account, so maybe just having the UOA run at all will continue all those programs but I'm not entirely sure. The Enhanced Client has its own mapping system, and it tracks party members on the map. In other words, if you can stomach change, the EC gives you some of the functions of UOA plus a mapper program all within the game client. However, the majority still plays 2D, as evident by its existence. The odds of EA developing an integrated map and/or tracking system for 2D are slim, and it's unlikely that EA will give us true record function, through 2D or EC. Would a permanent loss of UOA be the final straw, or would you still play UO?
