I'll investigate.

In the process of crossing our T's and dotting our I's we ran into a small speed bump with the Beta invitations. We hope to be able to bring you an update to this at the beginning of next week. We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused.

I suspect theyre prepping the login server(s) to display the Beta-test shard to the people who are inducted into the beta program and not to anyone else. I've noticed there's been login server issues/maintenance towards the end of each week right when I think they'd be ready to email out the notifications to the lucky applicants. I would predict there will be one more of these login server maintenance windows again soon. After all, it's been almost 4 years since they had to mess with them.

Several years ago, I went to empty out my junk email box on my hotmail account and stumbled across an email inviting for a free trip. I know, sounds like typical junk mail, right? Hotmail thought so too.

However, I noticed the email mentioned Ultima, which is very strange for junk mail to do(altho WoW didnt exist at the time, these days a sizeable chunk of my junk email is for WoW gold sellers).

Intrigued, I used my google powers and discovered the sender was an event management and marketing firm. Using my l33t phreakz0r skillz, I called the number and actually got a real live person. In essence, this junk mail actually was an invitation to fly out to San Francisco and preview UXO, which I heartily accepted, perhaps the most exciting game-related thing in my life, altho it's up there with when I got my first artie drop in Doom way back when(lots of screaming and ALL CAPS were involved).

Just goes to show, never hurts to spend that extra second or two sifting through your junk mail box :)

If people would actually read the beta registrant agreement, one of the addendums says you can admit to being in the beta program but little else. Most all the rest of the agreements says you can't repost content, info, pics or even reviews until the agreement terminates. Also says you can't act like a tool on the beta servers.

Really? In that case, can I just play on the beta servers from now on? It sounds like such a nice place to be...

shouldnt be allowed to act like a tool anyway...too bad EAs too cheap to actually enforce it. They need to put a lot more money towards maintaining uo and fighting cheats and abusive players.

Eww! You are joking, right? Put money in to UO?

Better use that money to create something really new... Like a football manager game for a console, or a true on-line sandbox RPG for PC... :P

Ohh, err, wait... Ehm... Football Manager games aren't new? And they already have an on-line sandbox RPG? What? UO? :o
