It all looks wonderful and i cannot wait for it to launch. But one thing does worry me, every avatar ive seen in these screenies is exactly the same! Lets hope our toons can still keep their unique looks and not end up clones!

As long as they dont do what they did with Elves. Currently in UO there are no negative points to playing an Elf Character. If you wander around the lands you will see that a lot of tamers are Elves ( because of the elvish dogs ) and the same goes for mages. Even a lot of the items are only useable by elves, but you dont get items only useable by humans.

They need to readdress this imbalance especially as they bring in more races.

There should be distinct disadvantages associated with every race to offset their positive racial traits.


But i am looking forward to the new UO inout heading our way.

But people, however would EA squeeze out every penny they can if not by forcing people to buy their expansions to access the best items, new lands and new graphics?

Silly people. They'll probably charge ?40 for this one :D

100% agreed. Unfortunately when it comes to balancing anything in this game OSI sucks :(

Wowah... long time no post..

umm, was watching one of those Town Hall meetings on youTube... and sorry to say guys but DarkScribe said 'There will be no Dwarves in UO'. He also confirmed that Kingdom Reborn will be free, and that when 95% of the players are using the client, they will being thinking about phasing out 2D.

Personally, I prefer the old 2D to the new stuff. The new graphics are faaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaar better than the 3D we've got now. And you never know, perhaps UO will get more players?=)

There was something also mentioned about a 'new player experience' being improved with UOKR, as well as greater benefits and rewards for existing players who introduce new players... Darkscribe did say that the growth of the UO population is in the hands of the existing players...

Dont remember anything being said about Gargoyles being the new race either... but clearly remember him saying 'there will be no dwarves in UO'.... was even a slide of a dwarf and a bit X over it.

I think the growth of UO would be helped the most by them actually marketting UO properly in the UK and Europe !
Something they havent achieved in many years. I dont recall seeing any expansions in the shops since Renaissence.

tbh cause they will probably be using a new engine youll find it runs just as easy as the old 2D version does.
Unless you have one of those crappy Gamestop shops in your town you probably wont have seen any of the expansions in your shop. Though I do remember seeing Samurai Empire in my local game and gamestation :o

We will just have to keep our fingers crossed. Having it on the shelves of the shops would help circulate the game more and attract more players.

Re the new client being free: I think that the way that the patches for ML were distributed proved very successful, and the new client could well be distributed in the same way, with extra content that won't be accessible until your account is upgraded.

Here's the actual video :)

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XsXhcWoSe1I

If you just want to skip to the chase go to about two minutes in where he clearly says something along these lines:

Now we all know there's been a little leak from our japanese friends..

Now.. This may come as a big suprise to you all..


*WoW Dwarf comes on screen*

Everyone loves dwarves right?

*Crowd Applauds*

Well..

A bid red cross comes out and covers the dwarf

Crowd sigh and gasp and cheer and clap and cry and scream, Everything

And then.. In big white writing: "DWARVES WILL NOT BE IN UO:KR"

It says "Dwarves will not be in UO"... not UO:KR.... UO.

Sorry, but bit of a difference there.

Gosh... Lots of really interesting things from the Atlanta Town Hall Meet! Thankyou to whoever took the time to record that. I was particularly impressed with the promise of the sitting ability, also larger cows will be great.
But seriously, though the video quality is rather poor, I think that the images looked marvelous and I for one cannot wait for Kingdom Reborn! Hurrah!
