    Well I had hopes for a old server to be released will the old skill and stat rules but he basically said no without saying it. I hate to see a good game get destroyed by ridiculous expansions but that's the way they're going so I don't see no hope for me in the future for the old UO return. Thanks for the interview though.

    yeah, apparently they are saying "if you want fel-only style gameplay, play siege"

    Siege had quite few blessed items and that personal bless deed last time I checked. On top of it had several other issues that dev was just ignoring, but in a way I can understand why because its so small shard. Still UO wount come back for me.

    Like Wilki once said, that those that want an old style server, could not even make up their mind to what they want from it. Everyone had their own ideas what a classic server should have for a rule set. Siege and Mugen are thr closest that one gets to an old style server and I think they are even thinking about changing a few things on those servers, but that is just a rumor prolly.



    I am so looking forward to UO:KR and the AddOn Stygian Abyss. Its going to be great fun. Can't wait.

    Sounds sweet, but not enough to draw me back.

    "Go to Siege Perilous" is by the way indeed getting old. "Go play with the rest of them on the freeshards" would have been more honest and to the point.



      I´ll rather go play EVE...but I do wish UO to live forever....maybe after 10 more expansions it will reach a state that appeals to me
