@Kyronix @Mesanna

Are you aware the Origin store is only selling packs of 500 sovereigns ?

    Pretend you are going to buy 500.  The next screen has a place to select how many you want.

    They should just label that first box. Sovereigns.

    LOL.  Did yall seriously expect logic and sense to apply at Origin store?

    This is the business where people kept purchasing shard transfer tokens so gave them away for free. 
    I tell you the truth, tis better to do 10 damage on the right target than 100 damage on the wrong target.

    Breaking in the young since 2002

    You mean EA, UO has nothing to do with Origin.

    Except they sell all our sovereigns and upgrade codes

    Yes EA controls all the cash sales and UO has zero control of what EA does with their store.  The only store UO controls is the in-game that requires you to purchase tokens/upgrades/game time from the EA run store.

    You do not save money by buying the larger Sovereigns packs.  If you buy 10 of the 500 Sovereigns pack you pay $49.90.  But if you buy the 5000 Sovereigns pack you pay $49.99.  So you end up paying 9 more cents if you buy the 5000 instead of 10 500s.

    But you would have to make 10 purchases!

    one at a time...since the silliness of Origin will not let you put the same thing in the cart twice...without trickery and silliness.

    And they just can't understand why people are quitting, and why their sales are down.  Amazing.

    Allowing us to purchase an item in quantities greater than 1 would "require Origin to be recoded." A statement which is clearly bovine fecal matter of the highest quality. 

    Any online store management package that deficient doesn't deserve to exist.

    A lot of CCs will think this is a scam on your card and shut them off.

    And then EA autobans you, causing you to have to fight their interminable CS hierarchy to fix it.   :s

  • They can't believe they tricked you into buying one of their items. If your buying more than one it has to be a scam!
    Tell me lies, tell me sweet little lies
  • When you click on the 500, you get a dropdown menu giving you the option to buy 500, 1000, 2000 or 5000 Sovereigns.

  • Bought an expansion yesterday for more storage for my castle. Everything went perfectly and the delivery of my code was instant.
