I play both games, World of Warcraft {AkA: WoW} And Kingdom Reborn Beta, There is something very similar between the two games... There interface is practically identical, I made the image below to show the such similarity between two games.

What do you think? Is Ultima Online or should I say EA trying to match world of warcraft, or is it just some very unusual coincidence? You Decide.

I don't know. Does WoW borrow its interface from 20 other MMOs? Could it be that the interface is actually fairly common with online games? I definitely think that's the case, opposed to UO directly ripping off WoW. Could it have taken some things from it that it felt useful? Sure! But I'd rather have them borrow some successful concepts from other games than to make poor ones on their own.

Guild Wars also uses a similar hot bar, I just think that is the norm now a days and UO is trying to adapt. However, those two look freakishly alike! I don't mind as long as its useful and works right!

I really hope the UO Icons, look as nice as WoW & Guildwars.

Well rub butter on my beautiful butt and call me a croissant!

Id have to say its more the other way around :)

UO2 was in the pipeline long before WoW
