Producer Notes

Greetings everyone,

We have recently released Publish 100 to Origin, Izumo, and Baja.  If you haven't already, check out the Publish 100  notes, be sure to do so.  If everything goes well we hope to release world wide by the end of June.  We want to especially thank all of you who have submitted bug reports and worked with us to prioritize the bugs we squashed in Publish 100.  We can only address so many issues in this publish to keep our overall publish schedule in mind, so if we missed a bug you submitted look for a fix in a future publish and remember you can always send us a priority report!

As we finish up Publish 100 we are already busy planning and working on Publish 101, which you can read more about below.  Between Publish 100 and 101 we will be introducing a new item in the Ultima Store that many of you have seen - the Vault.  A vault provides storage of 125 items which is shared across all characters on a server.   The vault will be available on non-abyss ruleset shards only, so Endless Journey accounts on Siege & Mugen will have their bank box limit raised to 75.  We are putting the finishing touches on this new storage option so be sure to keep an eye on for when we release the vaults for testing and eventual release.

I am happy to announce we have found a EM for Lake Superior, but please note I am keeping all the applications that were filled out correctly for any future openings I may have.  We still have openings for Event Moderators so if you are interested check out this post for more information.

To celebrate the dawn of summer and the arrival of warm weather (for most of us) a summertime promotional item will be made available in the Britain Commons.  Keep an eye on for details when this item becomes available - and bring your appetites!

One last topic I would like to address is Sovereigns.  They are linked to accounts and if for some reason you want to merge or delete an account you will lose the sovereigns attached to that account.   We will not move Sovereigns from one account to another.

For the period between May 28th and June 11th there have been the following actions taken by CS,

8 Solicitations - all banned
9 Disruptive Behaviors 3 of which were banned
15 macroing - 9 bans
1 abuse of game Mechanics
1 Illegal house design
1 naming violation

See you in Britannia, 

Bonnie "Mesanna" Armstrong

7.  Regarding Origin orders, codes, and third party resellers.
Recently some of the player base may have noticed that an Origin store purchase they have made did not arrive or complete as expected. A confirmation or code email has not been received and you are wondering what may have occurred with your order. The Origin store enacts reviews on all transactions to safeguard against fraudulent purchases, and these reviews may take up to 72 hours. Unfortunately our Billing department is not able to expedite or circumvent this process, however players who have questions or concerns regarding a store purchase can contact Origin support for assistance using the below link:
When prompted for a product, choose Origin. Next choose your platform, and select ‘Orders’ as the topic. You can further specify your issue in the subsequent fields before speaking with an agent.
We would also like to reiterate that the Origin store is the only guaranteed provider of codes for Ultima Online. The validity of a code purchased from a third-party seller (be it a friend, in-game acquaintance, or recommended site) cannot be guaranteed. Furthermore, any codes we find to have be fraudulently obtained will be disabled and an account that applies any of these codes will have that code removed from said account. This can result in the loss of gametime, character slots, expansion access, Sovereigns (and the items purchased with them), in-game items and more. Please be advised that we cannot assist with any issues stemming from codes purchased via non-Origin means; you will be required to contact the vendor from which you purchased the code for further assistance.
