Folks who do PvP with the EC tend to be dexxers. Apparently, there's a casting delay for mages who PvP with the EC.

Heh. I intuit a CC lover. :)

I find both usable, but again, would caution against using EC for PvP mages.

I play 2d and im mostly a caster player as well. I have seen some people who are really really freaking fast and they claim to run Enhanced Client, and as someone said they are dexxers. I was told that the map system for the EC is better but I have honestly never tried it. I love my uoa and I have never been on who needed great graphics if the gameplay was solid.

Your stuck with the sick looking diseaesed version of UO then.

Some people just like pain with their pleasure, and the EC provides it. :)

Moving forward is a Good Thing, but EA needs to consider they've made a wrong turn somewhere and are not going the right way. The route they are taking is shedding Customers and not picking up many new ones.

What that one or more wrong turns were is something they have to dig into their records, look at the competition, and figure out to get back to moving forward on the path to more Customers coming in than are leaving. Can they do it, or is our destiny to be playing on free-shards?

Thanks everyone for all of your advice! Sounds like I will stick with the 2d client then :D

I would like to add that the map system IS very nice in EC though!

I'm not sure what this means, as I haven't used the Classic Client in a long time. I -HATED- the Kingdom Reborn look though. When I look at pictures of the Classic Client, it looks reasonably the same to me. What am I missing?

oh oh! A CC vs EC flame fest! Count me in!

I play EC excluvisly these days and it beats the CC in all aspects. I PvP in the EC with dexxers and mages and never had a problem with that cast delay people are talking about.

Oh, come on! At least make up some flimsy arguments so I can crush them with the superiority of the EC.

EC is still missing a lot of the CC features. It does not provide the same custom housing opportunities, misses the chessboard and other mini game support. Destroys books content. Has a billion of graphic glitches. Currently a massive bug in the handling if the layers of the environment. Those you experience when decorating your house. And it simple lacks the charm of the CC.
However I use both clients depending on what I am going to do.

That is a totally reasonable approach. Everyone should play the client she is comforable with. I couldn't care less about which client people are using. What I do care about is, when CC users start dissing the client I prefer. There's no reason to do that, noone's forcing them to upgrade if they don't want to. But by now I'm kinda used to such flame posts and am alternatingly bored or amused (and slightly irked) by it. So don't take my posts too serious if I wade into EC vs CC flame thread.

Oh, and you're right, house customizing in the EC is a bit trickier than in the CC. But this board/ thread is about PvP so I don't think that issue's very relevant to that ;)


And to finally contribute something to the OP question: I find that the EC is pretty handy for fights in the woods around Yew gate, because of the "auto-navigate around objects" option.
