Never tried the game but always wanted to give it a shot. Maybe this will give me some incentive to check it out, even though I generally avoid anything free-to-play.

Pales in comparison to either of the Everquest games, but once upon a time it was worth playing, and even paying for. Another sad reminder of just how far Origin has gone, in the very wrong direction.

Origin has gone in the wrong direction? You do realise Origin ceased to be a company in 2004. It's been more than 14 years since Origin ran it!

I played everquest a lot and heavily disagree. If you like combat based mmos where dedication is rewarded, like most peoples concept of a mmo is, then everquest is for you. I got wrangled up in a top level guild and my life got worse. When I was a victim of drama I was relieved and have no interest of ever having that again in my life.

If you like the idea of being in a world to do what you want, UO is for you. I would make fish cakes, cook them and give them off by the road. why? why not. I would steal from people in town and try to get away with it. People thought I was muling but I was just collecting.

The reason why most people like UO though is being a sociopath murdering weaker or non combat characters and they will blame the server split for that. Being able to murder people with no interest in pvp freely will never happen again unless we come to a situation where the only mmo available is open pvp.

Yes, I'm well aware that Origin no longer exists as a company, and hasn't for a bit. Their legacy, however, endures. As long as people remember something, it is never truly gone, for good or ill.

Personally, for the best part of UO were the freeshards - playing on them and running them (especially after we got a nice emulator with RunUO… Sphere was really crappy). These gave you great possibilities to run your own games using the UO engine, some of them were quite RP heavy.

Freeshards are indeed still great, but UO has come a long way . The official Enhanced client is now very good and convenient, plenty of quality of life improvement , auto map, chat channels, macros etc..
When it comes To mmo the next big thing is once again a world of warcraft expansion, ive seen no innovation , no progress in the last ten years. The old MMO like everquest, Daoc, UO and eve online are in my opinion still the best. I cant name anything modern with better gameplay .
Now if you want to play UO on official shards, pick either atlantic or europa, or the asian shard, that's where most people are playing . Community is still great and helpful, that's what makes the big difference.It's free to try and cheap if you want latest expansion, we arent exactly flooded with new rpg to play atm, so plenty of time.

I used to love UO, back in the day, and before the servers split. I was never really one for PvP, but the world felt a lot more alive and like a real place before then, and have never really experienced anything like that since.

I have played UO for a very very long time just being a GrandMaster Smith. At the time you had literally to give your weapons and armors to the Smith to have them repaired and you had to be a really trustworthy and respected guy. There were GM Miners and other crafters who were really needed. My smith had a few magic pts to gate and teleport and nothing else much.
It is something WOW and Everquest have just failed to create because of the link between craft and fighting.
