Interview at corpnews.com

Earlier this week I did an interview at corpnews.com. You can read it HERE.

Some nice direct questions in this one.

I commented at corpnews, but Iíll make a note here as well. UO is going to have to bite the bullet and get on top of the community tools problem. Adding new content and classes and templates and land is all well and good, but when the only tools the players have at their disposal to organize is buggy six year old guildstone code and an underused faction system, all that new content is going to be used up by individuals and small groups without them developing much of a emotional attachment to the game or its other players.

My character now has a plethora of tools available to use to keep other characters from interacting with him, as well as a number of reasons to want to be left alone. What UO needs more of is reasons to want to join up with others, and tools to facilitate that.

I don't disagree. I'd like to hear what you think once the feature set for the expansion is announced.

I liked the interview and I played UO for 4yrs now my accounts remain active but I don't play. PvP is one thing but UO lacks content majorly after an expansion comes out a month later you have done it all again how will this expansion be different? I am known for controversy over at the UXO forums and I announced the merger of UO and UXO before Binky weeks before due to snooping around. So if you get time take a look at this thread http://boards.stratics.com/php-bin/uo/showflat.php?Cat=&Board=uouhall&Number=5160206&page=0&view=collapsed&sb=5&o=0&what2=postlist&fpart=
UXO's demise was the worst call I have ever heard with it being so close to done. I saw the ea.jobs.com posting for UO2 so thats project X i'm sure. I like a new concept of a new UO but why not use the UXO stuff especially the world build? I loved UO once I can't bare to get rid of my last 2 accounts so how can you do that with UO2?
