Richard told us that he listen to us the players, so my guess is that nothing is set in stone yet and the game will continue to evolve.
I have a suggestion on PvP that will almost keep all playstyles happy.
Make PvP hardcore as before trammel or before Age of Shadows for the ones wanting that kind of game, that kind of thrill. Make it optional. If you dont want to participate then dont. Do your thing without fear getting dragged into something you want to avoid.
There will be guildwars and i would like to see an option for real consequences in the game. Remember it would be optional. The ones that enjoy a risk vs reward game, full loot and maybe even statloss for PK:s and while i think of it a bounty board could have those features that only affects them, noone else.
As i see it it's the only way to get the old UO players and the casual players not interested in PvP happy.
Such an option would suit a wider playerbase. All you guys have to remember that the really old UO players that experienced Ultima Online before trammel and Age of Shadows have been looking for a new similar MMO since 2003.
