  • In other games you can have a choice which kind of server you wish to play on (PvP, RP etc), the Tram/Fel split gives you similar sort of options in UO. Even in Tram you're not always safe. certainly recent EM events on different shards and the ong…
  • From a recent interview with Robert Garriott of NC Soft . . . Robert: If people say, "I don't want to buy from retail," they'll be able to buy it online. If they say, "I don't want to pay a monthly fee," then they can play Guild Wars. If they say,…
  • Its a torrent, download Bit Torrent first. Took me 4 days to download the bloody thing.
  • Which shard did you play on PsyX? Bit overly negative there imho. To original poster, go for the free trial and make your own mind up. You'll always get some people saying "this is the world's greatest game" or "this game is a pile of shit" about pr…
  • Exactly what MaeEye said. The new expansion has added a load of content as well, to cater slightly for the "WoW" crowd ( e.g semi-instanced dungeons). You should check out the official forums at Stratics (but take anything said on UO Hall with a pin…
  • One of the major problems in a modern 3d game would be the lag created by trying to create the equivalent of UO housing. Infinitely customisable housing able to hold thousands of objects would be a nightmare on the server for most modern 3d games I'…
  • Ultima Online, the original and still the best
  • I highly recommend it, but it's much harder to start than WoW or Guild Wars, but a bit of perserverence will pay off. There is very little in the way of tutorials but plenty people who will help out a new player. With the 8th Age box you do get an a…
  • I've got a place in DnL beta, not logged in for a long time. Can't see it doing anything, unfortunately. Wish was a far better prospect and look where it ended up.
  • Originally posted by LlamaLord You could say that any game is a "waste of time" but what you are not relising is mmorpgs are designed to be as time comsuming as possible, with the goal to suck as much money out of you each month as they can, so ther…
  • Apologies, I've edited my post. UO Radio are doing an interview with Wilki perhaps someone could bring up the castle giveaway.
  • Frankly atm there is only one big game, namely WoW. Tbh I found the crafting options much better and easier to get going in WoW than EQ2. Still prefer UO though
  • Welcome to the wonderful world of customer service. If you did a poll of players of pretty much any MMORPG, be it UO, DAOC, EQ2 or WoW the chances are they say the same thing, i.e customer service is shit. Same happens everywhere else, good service …
  • Personally it's never been better on Europa AFAIC. The new dungeons are full, the EM events leading up to the ML release have been excellent, lot of WoW people coming back. If you don't like it, don't play, don't pay for the expansion,do something e…
  • Originally posted by Laserwolf Carebears are Non-Pvpers I always thought Carebears were people who played in situations with no risk whatsoever (like WoW on any server). There are plenty people who I would describe as Carebear PvP'ers. I agree wit…
  • Is cracker some sort of American term of abuse? Where I come from it's a dry biscuit I put cheese on. One thing that pisses me off about stratics is half the mods don't even play the game any more.
  • You seem to be talking mainly about PvP LuRavi, which is only a small part of UO. Despite it's other faults UO is still the best game for actual RP'ing, has the best and most expansive house customisation and probably the best community out there. W…
  • A lot depends on what you want to do in game. There is still no game with the RP community or the house customisation options of UO, and unlikely that any will have. Having met 3 of the devs and had a beer with them I found them to be very sincere p…
  • Just a thought but maybe try XP instead of Windows 2000.
  • I do know that some of the Dev's are flying from the USA to England to meet up with players for a few hours and then on to Berlin the next day, which would suggest someone somewhere cares a little. Also you'd be surprised at the weird stuff in the p…
