    What is with this the weekend is when most get the chance to play and shards are coming down again.

    Talk about being a genius, who's idea is this?

    there are people who have lost characters from slots 6 and 7 and this is to fix that ! would you rather tell the people who have those characters missing they are gone for good because it is interrupting your play?
  3. That bug didn't effect me but I can totally understand people getting upset about that for sure. That has to be fixed asap. Just hoping no more reverts.

    My post has nothing to do with people missing chars. It has to do with a company doing something like this without it being tested well enough to be certain nothing bad would happen as well as doing it during what I believe is peak playing times.

    I feel sorry for anyone who loses even 1 gold and would hope that things would be fixed.

    What we are experiencing tonight is due to incompetence in quilty testing before implementations.

    Carpenters have a rule:

    Measure twice cut once

    EA's rule:

    Forget measuring we will cut as much as we like.

    Er, how long have you been playing? This type of performance is standard for EA. Seriously ... at least as far back as AOS.
    For me this would drive the stake thru the heart of UO play. For me this would be a character deletion because I would not be coming back.
    Again, is this REALLY news to you?

    Conspiracy theory:

    It's the classic sharders ... infiltrated EA account and billing management >with the intent< of crashing the entire system BACK to pre tram ...
