UO was my first MMO and nothing has come close to it since I quit...


These quest based MMO's are all the same, boring gameplay and cheap thrills; You level up, get more stats and eventually max your character... It's thoughtless, mindless and I don't get how people find it fun.


Still play free servers on and off but it's not like it was back in the day. Here's to hoping Archage can pick up where UO left off...

Sadly for me comming back to UO isn't an Option. It's not that I don't like the direction it's taken or that I can't deal with the graphics anymore or anything. It isn't even because of the tram/fel split. The reason is I played UO for over a decade lol. I lived in the world of Sosaria for way, way to long to ever go back. I loved my time in UO, but after so long I just can't go back, no matter how much changes in Sosaria I still feel like I've been there and done that.


If there were a new UO built on the same core principles with a new world, it wouldn't even need good graphics to get me standing in line with my money waving in the air. But as it is, I just can't go back. Many great memories though. 


Yes.... I still remember the name of the world in UO lol. Even if it was shattered.

UO does not exist anymore. The game that calls itself UO today, is a walking corpse, mocking the original.

If you're going to stick it out there, don't be afraid if you get it cut off.

I'd go back if it was how it was in 1998 or so.  I have tried the demo from time to time recently and I can't say that I'd recommend anyone playing at this point.  It's just not the same and it is very aged.  Only if it went back to its roots.

I often wonder what some of these old games would be like, population-wise, if they didn't have hundreds or thousands of updates and numerous expansions that morph the game completely. Save bug fixes and obvious exploits, I wonder if the games would be more popular in their original form. Perhaps not zero updates or expansions, but less than half, and without the highly controversial ones.

What's keeping EA from making an UO2 from the ground up? I doubt it would be a flop just from watching activities in mmo forums. People are begging for a polished sandbox mmo. In a  pessimist analysis it would at least have a loyal following just like EvE.

I think EA has shifted a good bit of the Mythic team over to Bioware to work on TOR.  They probably don't have anyone with enough passion or yearning to make it.

Take my advice, I'm not using it anyway.

Seriously, though, this game is still god damn amazing for all of the mechanics they've screwed. I'm fine with the graphics, for the most part the 2D (not the 3D) art still holds up surprisingly well, and the variable manner in which items could be used on your paper doll still has yet to be matched by another MMO, as far as character customization goes. It's really hard for me to play current MMO's and not think back upon all of the things UO did right, and still does right, that this recent batch of MMO developing morons can't seem to grasp. Really? It's hard to understand that players want tons of character customization, skill customization, and world customization?


This thread just makes me sad, because it reminds me of all the shit (and I mean asbolute SHIT) we have to play compared to the UO that came out in 1997. Sorry guys, but it's true.

I didn't get the net til 99, and UO was my first foray into online gaming almost straight after buying a modem.. What a ride..

Within a couple months I had purchased a second phone to be able to play it with my brother and we lost inordinate amounts of hours harvesting, dungeoning, and eventually both Gm'ing


When too many patches started to affect the gameplay, moved to free shards for a while to get the old "feel" including Novus Opiate Seclorum and more, and recently, UOGamers:Hybrid


My first MMO love. . . . .


Garriott needs to return to his roots and get a sequel rolling with the emphasis on the gameplay THEN graphics, Not the other way round. Many would thank him for it :)

Pay-to-Win / F2P will be the death of real gaming, Boycott it !!

Wow... "Ultima Online is getting old."  Talk about the understatement of the decade.   Nostalgia is only effective if you don't

actually play the game, otherwise you start playing it again and realize how crappy it actually is compared to where we are in terms of mmo's.

Or IPad's I have to agree if they can somehow port this game to portable devices maybe we can finally see once and for all how much the sandbox genre is still viable to the masses, especially people who have never touched a MMO.

I still play Ultima Online for the RP community, there is still a very large RP community on Europa, you will find much of the roleplaying community throughout Cove and the Yew Crossroads as well as Vesper and Trinsic.. We still RP on this shard like it is 1997 and we do RP warring, it is very fun and exciting..

Unfortunently, freeshards are the way to go, many of them more populated than the average "normal" server and some are old school..

Let me guess, they probably wouldn't have a clue how to even start the project. I mean they murdered this game over and over,every single patch after the other, look at the bag, they even put some slots to it now!!! WHy would they make an other wow clone and call it UO2? it make no sense, not for us and not even for them.

I sadly never got to play UO in the glory days. I heard more as once that the game gone to hell when EA took over and Lord Britain left. I tried a pirate server a year or two ago when the Mortal Online devs had posted a link to one of the old rule set UO servers. It was funny but as many others im spoiled with todays graphics and it also didn't help that i never got to play a real sandbox MMORPG like UO before aswell so i was pretty much clueless what to do or where to go.


I know sandbox games are all about freedom, but i wonder if a sandbox like that would work these days. When i look at the current sandbox games like Mortal Online (my biggest waste of money ever >.>) and that other game i forgot the name, its out for 2 years or so. Anyway that latest game is more a pvp slaughter house then anything else, it scares people off who aren't die hard PvPers and seeing that today's MMORPGer is used to have important gear rather then skills its a freightning, perhaps frustrating thought to lose your stuff when killed by others. Especially seeing how imature and unhonorable people are on PvP servers in WoW, AoC, etc.


I would love to see a sandbox MMORPG though where you are free to do what ever you like but have a little guidance with some NPC's to help you start the game and perhaps some save zones where you are newbie can flee too when some griever comes to kill you over and over again. Corpse camping, teabagging, etc. I know people love to shout these days that it makes you a carebear when you don;t like the thought of being ganked raped but what i heard about UO such behavior wasn't as present as in modern MMORPG's so with todays generation would it work?

UO is just "getting" old? It was the first, so yeah stating the obvious there. I played in 1998.

Funny how the best MMO's (UO, DAoC, EQ, PS, AO and a few others) happen to be the oldies. Trouble with the newer MMORPG's is all the hand holding, appealing to console gamers and lack of a challenge. For me, anyway.

Where we are in terms of mmos is not a good place. It may have aged but at it's core it is still far more of an expansive and interesting world with deeper mechanics and social interplay than most of the facerollingly easy, instanced, flashing light, cash shop affairs we see as the mainstay of the mmo market place nowadays.
