    Lose the isometric view, go full 3d with a decent graphics engine, and I'll subscribe for life.

    UO does not take kindly to graphics whores like yourself. We prefer you play something else.

    Ultima Online is still chugging a long.  Hell it seems to be doing better than half of the new released MMO's out in the market. 

     

    I'm sure I'll check this out.

    Keep the 2D view, just give me back the old playstyle! Those new screenies look horrible compared to 2D.

    lmao, your FE character looks like Matt Bradley from the Nothwestern on Deadliest Catch, but right after he "slipped" on the deck during that fight with that Jake kid..

    Well, it IS the old graphic set, at least that's they way I understand it. They dumped the KR graphics and reverted to the old ones, then added a more "modern" UI. Personally, it feels like a cross between the KR client and the old 2D client.

    EDIT: typo

    I'm not sure who Matt Brady is or Deadliest Catch -- I'm assuming one is a TV show and the other is an actor on that show? Since I don't watch TV I'll have to take your word for it...sorry.
