Just thought I'd let those of us who don't check the UO website or
Stratics very often. Twenty bucks for a 5th character slot and gift
codes are going for 2 dollars each. It's not a bad deal especially
if you missed out on them the first time around.

I already had the 6th character slot, but I scrolled down the page and found
7th Anniversary Item Codes for $1.99 each. I bought 3 of them before UO cut
me off. I now have Royal Leggings of Embers and Ancient Samurai Helms for
both of my warrior characters. A real good deal.

You can also buy a 7-pack of the Anniversary gifts for $12.95. Gives you
seven individual codes you can use for whichever gifts you want, doesn't
have to be one of each.

The gift codes are only on sale until January 5th.

I seen the 7-pack, but it was unclear if you had to take one each or could
take 3 or 4 of the same two items. I was only interested in the leggings and
helm.

Anyway, this offer should make the price drop on the helms and leggings that
were selling big bucks on vendors.

I think I'll just buy all 7 codes for 12.95. That way I can have the
whole set and a couple of duplicates of the useful ones.

If you think people are bitter now just wait until EA starts selling
soulstones for 20 dollars each. It's only a matter of time.

I wonder how many people bought 7AE just for those items. Big difference
between $29 and $2.

A Lot. And they are all pissed off. 11 pages of postings on Stratics about
how evil EA is. Personally, I could have lived without additional 7AE
gifts, but I think it is cool that I have to option to spend a little cash
and get some more. I wouldn't spend $15 on ebay for one gift, but I'll give
EA $2. And better yet, you can buy the 6th character slot codes now since
7AE isn't on most store shelves anymore.

I bought ONE, but I had a nice little item called a $15 off coupon at the EA
store. So I got two aniversary gifts and the 6th char slot for $11 including
the shipping and handling. So I'm thinking I got a pretty good deal. :) ~ By
the way. 7AE was only going for $19.95 online at the EAStore. Not $29.95
Like SE was.

The interesting part is that folks have proposed before that EA cut
the legs out from under the scammers and eBayers (two sets that only
partially overlap) by doing exactly this. (Selling ingame items for
U$D.) From one point of view, buying an advanced character is not
much different from buying an acount.

The overall response of the playerbase seems to be that any traffic in
game goods for U$D is a Bad Thing and not to be tolerated, no matter
who does it. (A position I agree with BTW.)

I basically agree that paying real money for in game items whether
it's to an ebayer or to EA damages the game but in the case of
soulstones and 6th character slots those items are just so useful I
think we will need a way for new accounts to acquire them.

In the best of all possible worlds EA would just make all accounts
default to 6 slots and would give us a fun in game mechanism for
acquiring soulstones but since they have no intention of doing that
I'm willing to up put with them being sold for real dollars.

If you have not received a 7th Anniversary gift code by now, you will
not receive one. I was not signed up for EA SPAM, so I did not get
one either. When I checked with EA (after about the 10th e-mail),
I got the answer that all codes were sent and if I did not read the
web site and find out that I would not get a code if I was not signed
up for "EA news" (SPAM), it was too late now.

I told them I thought that stinks, along with a few other choice
words.

I'm not an economist, but I don't see how the ebayers are harming
the game. Other that facilitating the conection between buyer
and seller, how is ebay different from an in game vendor?

The idea that ebay is harming the player to player interaction in
the game is believable. The answer to that issue, if EA/OSI
decides to address it, is by improving the game in a way that
promotes that interaction, not by pressuring ebayers.

I can well understand EA not wanting to see people profit, in
real dollars, from EA's work. Property rights and so forth
should be protected. But that does not explan the opinions I see
here, against the ebayers.

I am apparently missing something, and over a year of lurking
here hasn't made it obviouse to me. Can it be explained in small
words?

I think the problem is that the 6th slot and the soulstone were
the wrong type of item to be offered as a promo/upgrade. These
are game improvements that should be applied, in some way, to all
accounts. Both could have been added the 7th anni upgrade, as I
still say the 6th slot and the stone were meant to be used hand
in hand.

The Shroud of Shadows is exactly the type of in game item that
should be offered for pre order promos. A basically useless
item, that has value ONLY if a player places value on it.

I agree with you but they're smart. They knew that absolutely nobody
was going to buy the stupid Seventh Anniversary edition without
something actually useful being included. The 6th character slot is
the only reason I bought that box at all. And after the disaster that
was AoS I doubt they would have gotten many pre orders for the Samurai
expansion either. The only reason people are so anxious to get these
expansions is so they can have the first crack at new housing lands.
Since Malas basically solved that problem there was no real reason to
be the first to have the latest expansion anymore.

I think it's easier for them to convince us to buy their stuff if they
include something in the box that we just can't live with out. God
knows they can't do it by providing fun new content and smooth bug
free releases. :)

Well it's a damn good thing they are in California, because I'd
go take it out of someones ass. EA is a bunch of stinking assclowns
that keep their heads up their asses. I recieved SPAM from them twice
before that point was ever brought up here.
