UO is too great a game to be just puttering around like an old man in white shoes and plaid pants. They should reimagine it as a browser-based client or something.

Some of the core systems could use a tune-up (after 15 years, what doesn't need turning?) But you put a new engine under the old hood, UO would blow the doors off 90% of the more recent games.

UO Devs,

Listen guys. The "Ifs" are important and we sympathize, but ultimately that's an excuse. Don't be timid. Don't be afraid to see what would happen if you launched a classic shard and gave it some marketing attention. You would be pleasantly surprised how successful it is for you and the game.

Humbly yours and still waiting for a Classic Shard,
Keen
Classic UO fan

As sad as that (probably) is, I would be there on day one.

As someone who played UO on the OSI servers from 98-01 and someone who not only played on private servers but ran one for 4 years, I would not hesitate to resubscribe to play on a classic shard.

A classic shard wouldn't really be how UO was back in the day. UO was great because of all the different types of players. A classic shard would be only appeal to a niche where as a true classic UO appealed to everyone because you only have one choice. It's like a PvP server in games that aren't PvP in all servers. Only a niche join PvP servers, such as myself even though I don't PvP. It just would never be the same as it use to be.
