Re: Thank you Derrick and UOSA Players for a decade+ of fun

You were one of the first players I met, on a small northern island within weeks of the UOSA launch, over 10 years ago. You've been an amazing asset to this shard, and a friend since you first landed here. Your dedication, integrity and creativity helped shape this shard since the beginning. Thanks ...

Re: Housing limit. (Now with less libel!)

Would someone publicly claiming that they have access to 20+ accounts for housing storage purposes be considered abuse? Although I'm opening the door to a "sly, u mad.com?" It's kinda worth mentioning how some people get constantly looked over when they're publicly abusing guidelines and rubbing pe...

Re: Housing limit. (Now with less libel!)

Can you define "accounts which are used clearly to just hold houses for another player"? Does the account owner have to play once a month? Once a week? Daily? Do they have to use the houses on their account? I think that in the asking of this question you understood what difficultly it would be to ...

Re: Run UO or POL

I was wondering why, Derrick, did you choose Run UO as the emulator. RunUO is a really well engineed system (I'm not saying POl isn't, I haven't seen much of it), and at the time that I began working on Second Age, RunUO development and its community were very very active. Also. I love C#. Actually...

Re: Mounts

Things like mounts and stat loss are on this shard because this shard's goal is to recreate the T2A version OSI mechanics. Development is not aimed at what will satisfy the greatest number of players; and as a personal opinion I also feel that it's pretty impossible to do that. There is an immense w...

Re: Richard Garriot stopped by his Castle in BRIT!

Hopefully we'll get some of the screenshots up on the front page of our website - couldn't ask for better publicity. Does anyone have any ties to any "gamer blogs"? Maybe do a write up of the story with some links to UOSA???? Working on that. Unfortunately the patch note trumped this thread in the ...

Wow.

I can't believe I missed him either, I've been down with the flu.

Re: Sebben, got unbanned so he could give all his stuff away

Cavewight (aka MondainsLegacy), You are not entitled to the reasons that other accounts were banned or not banned, or when, how or why. I understand you think this is all so unfair; I respectfully disagree. It's especially troubling that the forum fraud continues; this only serves to reinforce and a...

Re: I WON I QUIT I GIVING UOSA A BILLION GOLD IDOC PARTY EVE

It is not our policy to comment on account actions which are taken against players.

An exception should be made in order to counter dishonesty.
Cavewights accounts were banned for accepting in-game goods for the promise of money.

This post is a lie, and his forum account is now banned as well.

Re: INCREASE POPULATION NOW******

There's a lot of assumption in the first post that I don't agree with. The biggest assumption is that an artificial lower barrier to entry results in better retention. I reject this entirely, you may have more people starting, but it by no means encourages them to stay longer, and may actually do th...
