Ultima Online was Green Lighted needs to be F2P
Ultima Online was green lighted, game needs to be free to play .....only then would it be worth playing again, as dead, and broken as it is in it's present state.

This brings up a very interesting conflict.

Why were gold/item-sellers considered a problem?

Because they are exactly "pay to win" - the original version of being able to spend a bit more cash to advance faster than someone else.

Therefore, the community was often keen on "regulating" them with house raids and the like, with sellers and buyers both considered valid targets.

Without the community of players being able to regulate those who were a problem to the economy, it was then put solely into the hands of the feckless game management. Without anyone doing anything about it, the problems just kept getting worse, and so the economy tanked hard (among other reasons).

But now they are a part of the game and accepted...while F2P and the associated tiered subscription levels are looked upon in horror and derision, despite that F2P and tiered subscription models are not always P2W.

So which is it? Pay to win good or bad? Oh, right...in modern UO, practically a necessity for a new player because of the economy...or the lack of anything resembling such.

Estoy de acuerdo, Ultima Online necesita Free To Play (F2P).

En el mes de marzo volví a Ultima Online y entré en los servidores de Europa y Oceanía.

En Oceanía no coincidí con ningún jugador y además no se veía casas construidas en los alrededores de Britannia, el servidor estaba vacío.

En el servidor de Europa vi alrededor de 10 jugadores en Luna conectando a diferentes horas. Por el resto del mapa no coincidí con nadie excepto en el banco de Britain y New Haven donde había uno o dos jugadores de paso.

Si quieren renacer los servidores oficiales necesitan plantearse Free To Play para que la comunidad vuelva, para quienes desean opciones avanzadas ofrecer opciones de pago como sucede en juegos como League of Legends.

Esta decisión pondría fin a los servidores emulados y hacer que volviesen todos a los servidores oficiales.

In March Ultima Online again and went into the servers in Europe and Oceania.

In Oceania not coincided with any player and also no houses built around it looked Britannia, the server was empty.

On the server Europe saw about 10 players in Luna connecting at different times. For the rest of the map not coincided with anyone except bank Britain and New Haven where there were one or two players step.

If Ultima Online want to revive the official servers need arise Free To Play for the community again, for those who want advanced options offer payment options as in games like League of Legends.

This decision would end the emulated servers and make them to return all the official servers.

That is easy.

The only announcement/"response" Florentine Games have bothered to give so far, and we're probably lucky to get that much as they have a phobia of Steam:

http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/updates/249850626
(Or just click on the Announcements tab to see the limit of their utmost transparency.)

Do I have to buy this game?

No, there is no cost to download the client. There is however a monthly subscription cost.

Is there a Free Trial Period?

Yes! New accounts will receive a free 14 day trial period to experience all of the content in Ultima Online. No credit card information is required to download the client and get your 14 free days!

What happens when my trial period is over?

Your characters and progress will not disappear! Hopefully by the end of the two week trial period you will be thrilled with the one-of-a-kind gameplay experience that is Ultima Online and join us as a subscriber. If the time just isn't right - save that account information and come back when you're ready! Your character(s) will be waiting!

If you have any questions, leave them in the comments and we'll do our utmost to respond!
