  1. Paidric from Haven Helpers and Ingame Auctions has agreed to do an interview with UOForums! Haven helpers has some fantastic new player guides and helpful resources for the new player to UO. Here's our interview with Paidric 1) In your experience, what kind of experiences or game aspects are new UO players looking forward to that convinced them to try UO? Is is the idea of owning and customizing a house or pvp, for example? One of the most unique features of Ultima Online is surely house customization. Many players are eager to own a house (and make it a borg cube *sighs*) right out of
  2. EOGamer, which owns UOForums, turns three years old on Feb. 17. Check out this article about upcoming news and interviews related to the anniversary. Approaching Three Years | EOGamer
  3. Big thanks to Chad for doing the interview and sending it back so fast, if only Mythic were that fast 1) What is a typical UO day for you? A: I roll out of bed, put my finger to the wind, and go! I usually begin the day checking private messages, icq’s, and the message boards for clues as to where potential fun could be had that day. I make my rounds beginning with the places I’ve spotted people the day before. I check the banks, vendor houses, and any of the popular hang outs. Keep in mind, I could come across a new toy, scrap the rest of the day’s plans, and entertain myself in new an
  4. Turcopoliers are the recruiting officers who interview the candidates for the Knights Templar, but this could also be done by Sergeants. The preliminary interview always takes place on neutral ground, which means in a town, in the capital city of Britain, its in the warriors guild, in other towns, its up to each Recruiter to find a suitable public building, that has at least a table with a chair that the Recruiter can sit at during the interview. All candidates are to be asked the following questions satisfactory before ! they are invitated to our Headquarters for the next stage in the rec
  5. Mesanna took some time out to answer questions sent in by our users, so here's our interview with Mesanna. Interviewing Mesanna 1) What are some of the ways UO is trying to innovate to stand out from other games? In my opinion UO is so unique we can only improve on that foundation. We want to make sure there is something for everyone’s play style. 2) The Warriors of Destiny story arc has been long(over 2 years!) and enjoyed immensely by the player community. With it's conclusion fast approaching, is there another grand story arc waiting in the wings? If so, can you give so
  6. Chrissay the UO Community Coordinator took some time out to answer our users questions. Below is our interview with Chrissay. <hr> How often and what kind of characters do you play UO with? I play several times a week of about 3+ hours a session. I play a Pally What's the hardest part of being the UO Community Coordinator? The Five on Friday questions. Sometimes I don’t receive enough questions or finding the good balance of questions. What's your favorite part of being the UO Community Coordinator? I love communicating with the player base. This goes all the way back when I

  8. What is the strangest thing in a job interview that made you go hmmm?? Iwas at an interview , this guy asked me if i knew a woman from a town, as she had the same surname as me, it was his wifes maiden name, when i said no, he said good to know there is no foreign blood in the family... It made me think... hmmm Then another interview, this guy asked me why I wanted to work when I have a partner to support me and children (who were 3 and 5 at the time) Then proceeded to question me about how much my partner earned It made me think... hmmm Another interview, this lovely lady asked if
  9. Draconi took some time out to answer questions sent in by our users, so here's our interview with Draconi. Are there already plans being made for UO after Stygian Abyss is released, aside from continued bug fixes and general gameplay improvements, that can be vaguely hinted at? Absolutely! Calvin pokes and prods us regularly, and we already have at least two publishes worth of plans just for Live. As for the hints, I can give some vague, and one specific. We’re definitely interested in providing something new. Also, we’d like to look back at the past, and say “Hey, we miss tha
  10. Guest

    Two interviews.

    If you don't keep tabs on the announcements and interview area, we have two interviews which are in need of questions First one is for Paidric of Haven helpers, the second one is for Draconi from EAMythic. Interview for Paidric - http://www.uoforums.com/interview-area/57967-interviewing-paidric-of-haven-helpers.html#post416143 Interview for Draconi - http://www.uoforums.com/interview-area/58015-interviewing-tim-draconi-cotten-lead-designer-ultima-online.html#post416435
  11. Speedman/Josh was kind enough to agree to do an interview with us Here's the questions we asked him and the answers he gave. [Generic questions] What has been your most memorable accomplishment in your career? Making Technical Director before 30? J Getting hired by Origin is probably the most memorable accomplishment as it was my first gig in the game industry. It was an amazing experience: I got to meet and work with the people behind the names on the forum that I idolized. The whole experience was surreal. What was your favorite part of UO? The memories. I starte
  12. Bearing in mind this interview is a lot shorter than originally planned, due to Jeremy leaving Mythic. So this interview should be viewed as done by an independent and not an EA/Mythic employee. Thanks to Jeremy for sending this to us, it is appreciated 1)What has been the most challenging aspect of community rep through the EA/Mythic transition... a) For the community? – The biggest challenge with the community was the long downtime between Publish 49 at the end of November and Publish 51 in late January. It was unavoidable for logistical reasons, but it was very difficult to ke
  13. TheGrimmOmen, the evilist of all UO team members has graced (or is that cursed? ) us with a fantastic interview. Here's our interview with TheGrimmOmen 1) I've never really liked the way torpedo dragons (swamp dragons) look in 2d, but I do like how they look in KR. Any chance 2d Swampies could get a makeover? I’ve never cared for the swampies look either, I mean, 6 legs? But in any case, there’s actually an old “rule of thumb” where changing artwork in UO is concerned and that is: “If it’s been in the game longer than 6 months, it’s (for the most part) too late to change it.” S
  14. Calvin's interview also came back today! So here it is. Questions: 1) Will EA/Mythic ever think about ressurecting Ultima X: Odessey or some other form of Ultima Online that is truly 3D? This is a reaaaalllyyy bad question. By bad I mean letting anyone know anything about anything that has to do with something is not necessarily for everyone. So having said completely nothing about that, I’ll say this. I don’t know. I really can’t speak for what plans Mythic has in terms of a “Truly 3D” environment for Ultima Online, I know many have tried and failed … or the circumstances and tim
  15. Again, thanks to Mesanna for taking the time out to answer our questions Here's Mesanna's interview! 1) Thanks Mesanna.. I'd really like to know the future direction of UO. There’s been lots of EA staff/ company changes that have affected the direction of UO and it would be good to know what is happening in the future. Can you enlighten us? Even with all the changes to the team I personally love the direction I see UO going in. UO is going back to the basic story line of the original games which we all loved.2) Please describe your average day there at EA Mythic. Oh god! I never have
  16. Noxin was kind enough to answer our questions our users submitted Here's our interview with Noxin. 1) I was curious how much Flash experience you have behind your belt, and what proggy you use to open up the monster animation from the UO file. I've actually been doing the whole flash thing for about 4-5 years now; my initial reason for wanting to learn was simply seeing the excellent UO related flash movies that were floating around at the time, after a few months fiddling I was more than capable of putting together basic animation and throwing on some sound effects. But I wasn't satis
  17. The mighty Escaflowne/Drew of Vesper [-V-] was kind enough to let us interview him Our users submitted their questions and he sent the interview back earlier today Here's the interview.. 1.) Can I PLEASE buy your (Blessed) Longpants? My double blessed long pants aren’t for sale I’m afraid 2.) How long ago was the Vesper [-V-] guild established? -V- has been around for approximately 7 years 3.) Approximately how many chars/players does the guild average? Well the guild roster now consists of only 38 players, some of them being alternate characters of others, its a big drop
  18. Hi all I'm wanting to get some interviews started with community folk and guilds etc, so would like people to submit questions for future interviews I'll make a point of adding your names to the interviews when it's posted, so you get credit for the questions So, can you all submit some questions YOU would ask a guild or individual in this thread. Remember to separate the two, so a format similiar to this, would be great Guild Questions - Question - Question - Question Individual Questions - Question - Question - Question (As an example) And a gentle reminder : Keep this th
  19. Shawn Andrich, (gamerswithjobs.com) had a great session with Cardell Kerr and David Lennon, both who work at Turbine on Lord of the Rings Online. They talked about the game's new features and some very interesting stuff about the MMO industry as a whole and the viability of the standard WoW formula moving forward. Also, they talked about little secrets like: * their favorite games * their favorite class in Lotro, * playing in Ettenmoors, * a console version of LotRO, * Turbine's biggest the Lord of the Rings fans and much much more, find out at gamerswithjob.com
  20. Sean from The Syndicate was kind enough to agree to our interview and answer our users questions. Below you'll find our interview with Sean, Guildmaster of The Syndicate. ------------------------ 1. What has made The Syndicate® so successful that they have been around for so long? The short answer to that question is: read the book (Legend of The Syndicate from AvariPress.com or Amazon.com). The answer to that question is actually extremely lengthy hence why we have a book published. We have been around since 1996 but if we were to found our guild today and make the mistakes we
  21. The great admiral from The Turbulent Waters was kind enough to answer our users questions. 1) What do you think could be added to the fishing experience to make it more interesting? Quite frankly, a lot. Fishing has been developed by various members of the team over the years as both a resource-gathering and a treasure hunting skill. I think both aspects could be greatly expanded on. As Gem of the FCB has been requesting for years, it's time to change up the pre-chest shipwreck loot. It's been nine years since that stuff was introduced and it has become depressingly common. Other suggest
  22. Crystal Rose took some time out to answer questions submitted by our staff and posters alike. Many thanks Crystal for a great interview 1) Are you the same Crystal Rose that was part of the Chesapeake community for so many years early in the game? Answer: No, I have never played Chesapeake, although I do travel around a lot from shard to shard with Deal or No Deal UO Style as Vana Mana Rose *winks*. 2) What has been UO's staying power for you? Answer: The people most of all. I have experienced many happy times within the walls of UO over the last 7 years. Some unhappy times
  23. Today UOToolbar.org has conducted its first ever interview... with the often rumoured, elusive Adam of UOForums.com. Adam is a long time player of Ultima Online, but also the administrator & publisher of UOForums.com. UOForums.com is a popular forum for the UO community at large. The forum features not only a large, diverse membership of UO player from nearly every shard, but also UO Team members from EA Mythic, and other leaders & publishers from around the multiverse that is Ultima Online. On the forum you will find many boards about UO, game clients, how-to’s, guilds, player towns
  24. Nok was kind enough to take some time out to answers questions submitted by our users. Many thanks Nok! If you don't use it already, I highly recommend the UO Toolbar that he's created! 1) My question is what is it that keeps you playing UO all these years later and not some other 'brand spanking new game? “It” is a lot of things. Most importantly, friends... there are friends in TAA|tDw|MT (The Adeptus Astaries, The Dark Wardens, and the Mage Tower, I am the current guild master of The Dark Wardens) and other great guilds & players on Baja that I have known since I started pla
  25. Kelmo has been playoing UO for a long time and has been involved with a few community projects within UO. I thought he'd be an excellent interview candidate. SO here goes: Behind the character: Do you play any computer games at this time and if so which ones? The only game I have played in the last six years has been Ultima Online. I may be looking into other games in the very near future. What was the very first computer game you played? Does Pong count? I remember when my father ordered that game and brought it home. *chuckles* Hours of fun. I grew up with the home electronics and en
