So they aim to get new people in instead of keeping existing customers happy? Ea in a Nutshell

Thing is Stormcrow. 3d as nice as it is, ages far quicker than 2d. Its does seem odd to me that EA would develop a client that is well late 90's. Longevity wise it would be wiser to make a cutting edge type affair wouldnt it?


Well 3D is also upgradeable, whereas 2D obviously isn't. And for the aging, I think UO's 2D view looks really old.

I doubt they will ever make UO a level based system. If they do, that's when I'll be probably leaving. The skill based system is what actually differentiates UO from the million competitors. In my books, it's a way better system.

Well believe me or not, but rewriting the engine is a lot less work than re-drawing every damn piece of art in the game.

Still, what I meant was that in 3D you can easily add animations, new graphics, etc. In 2D you will have to redraw everything. That's why we have never got more emotes in 2D, but have lots in 3D.

Depends what you want from a mmorpg, UO is definetly now "retro gaming". Some like that.
