Napa vs. Catskills Treasure Hunt Showdown Results!

One week ago, Napa Valley took on the currently reigning champion, the Blue Beetles from Catskills. The battle was Tuesday (11/08) at the Nujelm Chessboard on Test.

Both sides ran into trouble on their very first chest. Neither side could find the correct location for a long time. But eventually Catskills found their chest and pulled ahead of Napa. Catskills continued to lead throughout the rest of the competition allowing them to win and keep the title of Champion Treasure Hunters for their shard!

Congratulations to the Catskills team! And a great job goes out to the Napa team!

Napa Valley - Team DC: Clod, Alimony, KronKiller, Chelsea, and Amoniel
Catskills Blue Beetles: Dr Sucio, Underpants Gnome, Arwen, Llewen, Faerlyght and Hasselhoff

Stratics has just announced the start of QA5 - a series of short interviews with various members of the teams around Ultima Online. These five questions will give you an introduction to the producers, developers, event moderators and all the others contributing to your UO experience.

The series starts with 5 questions for Bonnie "Mesanna", Associate Producer for Ultima Online.

What project that you were involved in are you the proudest of?

I actually have two projects, the success of the first External Testing Team and the current Event Moderator Program. We have a great creative team that works really hard to come up with ideas that are played out in a unique style to each EM.

Follow the link to Mesanna's QA5.

Have a nice weekend and see you in-game!

Greetings,

Due to the critical issue found on Origin we are going to revert it to the last publish date which was 11/1. We are sorry for the time lost, but do not want you to lose any more items because of this issue. As you know Origin is a test server, and from time to time we have to fix things here by reverting. We appreciate your understanding and willingness to take this all in stride.

  • Loot fix in Shame that was causing player items to be reformatted.

  • You can now drag and drop items into the SOT Book and Seed boxes

  • Corrected an issue with obtaining the Seed box in the Veteran Reward System

  • Summoned pets will no longer attack each other
  • Fixed an issue with the respawn timer on the Cave Troll in Shame

Our apologies again to the Origin players,

The UO Team

As many of you know Calvin left us two months ago to move onto his next adventure in life. Ive stepped in to help Mesanna and the team to stay on course. Its been a wild and challenging ride since I joined the team and I still have plenty to catch up on in terms of the latest UO content. In fact, I have exactly 12 years to catch up on which is a lot in the MMO space. Before I go any farther lets get some of the big questions Im sure on your minds out of the way
