Its pretty straight forward. If EA were to finally wake up and make Pre-AOS servers, would you go back despite the 2d grpahics and so called outdated tech?

Personally, I would. I would go back despite the game being in 2d. Because, even though its still 2d, the game play and freedom UO offered before AOS trumps the "pretty" games with their 3d graphics.

If EA offered pre-AOS servers, would you go back to UO?

Yes
No

The old UO players really need to get back to posting their wants when it comes to UO. the more support classic servers have, the better the chance they have of coming true.

I'm assuming you mean Pre-UO:R servers.

You mean paying €13 for an unsupported server like they have 'Siege'?

It'd take more than that for me to go back again, I'd need a new interface/graphics update. I'm not saying full 3D but it'd have to be improved as it's simply too dated looking and the UI isn't flexible enough.

If they put some effort into the UI/graphics and gave us pre-trammel servers I'd go back, it's the only way though.

Graphics and UI would bring me back thats it. Doesn't have to be state of the art graphics but it does need to be easier to manage and not so dated looking.

This isn't a signature, you just think it is.

They just did a graphics and UI overhaul with Kingdom Reborn.

Lordmord - not enough. From what I've seen it's still a rehashed but tired looking interface with some new models. I've been tempted for a while to give the trial a whirl though, might well do that this week at some point. Sadly the ruleset hasn't been improved, I'd prefer pre-trammel.

Well, unfortunately folks, this is EA we are talking about. So it would boil down to one or the other. New graphics and interface or classic, pre trammel, servers?

If you ask me, the old interface was fine. You could set your spells where you needed them. You could leave your back pack open and set it to the side of the screen for easy access to your gear. Actually, when I think about it, old UO's interface was better than WoWs, AOCs, LOTROs or any of the other MMOs ive played.

As for graphics, Id take UO's old game play over graphics anyday. Id play in 2d again if it meant being able to play pre-trammel. 3D doesnt mean a better game.

I would jump back into uo ina  heartbeat if they opened upa new server or a new game that was just like the pre aos game. PVP in any game after uo has never been the same. I would want to be able to character transfer over though, after playing for 9 years i would not be in the mood for working up yet another character. Maybe if they made it so you coudl transfer your character if he/she had under 100 or less of each skill and no items on them.

I agree, there was nothing wrong with Pre AOS interface. I also agree that it was better than most new games. When i played Lineage II and WOW i acutally tried to replicate the UO view and interface as much as possible.

I too agree that gameplay is far more important that graphics. The ultima graphics were fine considering how the game worked. I woudl take the game play over new graphics anyday. Unfortunately, i don't see EA acutally opening a Pre AOS server. i don't knwo why they just havef a way to do nothing i want. theyve done it for 9 years.

I looked on the forums at the site you posted stun mages etc this crap was not back before tram.  They started adding this stuff in later it looks like. I can not remember a person stunning anyone in uo when i played. I looked on the pvp forum at some of the pvp. Blue looking beetles at the brit xroads wtf is that lol?  It looks like they made uo into some type of oddball game from its former self.

For all of you wishing for pre-trammel shards, what is wrong with Siege Perilous?

I agree. As time goes by my standards have changed. Not because I only care about eye candy but the suspension of disbelief is what it really boils down to with me. I remember the game-mechanics were to my liking but then so was the original Bionic Commando but I don't play that anymore either....

           I think alot of people jsut like to talk about the older MMos like UO and EQ and how they would go back if things were the way they used to be.....Truth is both games have private servers that people can play on and almost no one plays......I tried the top UO server and it was lucky to even have 100 people at peak.......Alot of these guys talk but when it comes down to it they would not go back.......
