kr is very excelent, i ll never understand why the project have been lost!

Kr is veru fast, easy to use... i have been really enjoy to play with KR! Caracters and mapping is absolutly fantastic compare to the shit of 2D. I started to really play to uo since 2001 and i never liked the 2d because I have never found the magic ambient of ultima 7 & 8 with the client 2d.

The first version of Third dawn was really good, and i don't understand why players don't liked it. i have never got lag with thid dawn after somes patch.

KR is the same thing, the graphical dev have do a realy nice work! and now, i ll must play with a version of SA who look like to 2d, a version i don't like it.

If for somes players, the graphical art is not important,that is not my point of view! Personnaly, i don't wait a new uo game with the last engine of crysis... but i wait an univers who respect the world of ultima like i know it in the saga.

Kr look like to ultima8 and ultima7. And i love to play with this univers.

Client 2d is old and riddiculous! Try ultima 7 with emulator exult in 1280X1024, this old game is more old but more nice than UO 2D.

Kr got interessing macro tools, and this software just need a big patch for correct the system crach and the others bugs.

Lot of players see kr lagged on their computers there is 3 years ago, but now, it's very fast on all recent machine.



Mays be a new TRUE ultima online go out when all players will stop to play at ultima online.

How much we were in 1998 to play at uo? And actually, how many players have we lost ?


Since Ea games have get back the project, ultima online decay years after years! origine have create treasure in 10 years, and ea game have transformed it in shit in 3 years.

The only serious project who created it, they stopped it for make a new BIG shit.:X

Well of course that only my personnal point of view.

If SA is the new client who delete KR, i ll delete my account.
I have closed my account 4 years, and opened it back for play with KR! so imagine how it's stress full for me to read all of this.

You can obviously read English, so put that skill to work. Just like everyone is trying to say, the SA client is in BETA; at least 3 months away from being a finished product. Also, KR was a disaster in that the only thing it improved over the 2D client was the graphics while it made everything else a lot worse.

Besides, if you like the KR client then you can still have many of the same interface options the KR client does in SA (I know because I turned just about all of it off when I first launched it). You seriously need to just chill out and do what we're all doing: use the in-game bug report.

First of all, Third Dawn sucked, personal opinion there. Anytime that you require a new client to just enter into the new lands (ilshenar) while being able to play with the old client in the old lands is just stupid.

UO at its peak, though EAMythic has never released ANY official numbers was around 300,000 paying accounts. There were a few news notes when UO passed 250,000 subsrcibers, but never any exact number. Best guess now, from various sources, is that there are around 70,000 p(L)ayers. With about 70% in Asian market with the other 30% spread out between North America and Europe.

EA has always run/owned UO. When it was first released back in 1997, Origin Systems Incorporated (OSI) was completely owned by EA. EA allowed Lord British and company to just run UO as an indendant branch within the greater EA empire. Then (in a thumbnail review) EA removed OSI independant status, moved everyting to EARedwood (California, USA) after Lord British quit/got fired, who knows exactly, several versions of the story. Few years later, EA purchased Mythic Entertainment, the makers of Dark Age of Camelot, one of UO direct competitors. Mythic was given the same treatment as OSI. A few years of independence, then subsumed in the greater EA empire and rename EAMythic. These are the people running UO today. At the time of the buyout/merger, I said that it was like giving the Coca-Cola guys charge of the Pepsi guys cause they merged. Or visa versa, either way you piss off some loyal followers.

my gp, KR to me was unplayable and I have 2 good machinces ( 1 desktop and 1 laptop). I'm actually enjoying SA, it's really not that different than KR but it's playable. Sure I've found some annoying things, but this is the beta and now is the time for everyone to help improve it. They can only do so much behind the scenes, it needs to be in open beta because we all know that there are massive amounts of different computer configurations out there and the only way to get it all up to par is to play it and report it.

Saying you'll quit if X doesn't happen isn't productive at all.
All IMHO

EA is abandoning KR way to early.. Its way better than 3rd Dawn and if they just put the time into KR that they have put into SA that client would be much much better. This is just another case of EA having no concrete direction they want to take UO.

I agree! I thought I could see the end of my UO days before me...and I just got back, but EA saved the day with the SA Classic!

Well done! My faith has been restored!

True, however, I have experienced gaming companies making ALOT of promises only to fall short when push came to shove.

I needed to see if to believe it!
