    EC for the bump :D
  • This appears to be much closer than previous polls on other sites. I wonder why that is?   >:)

    Probalby because you actually have to have an active account and can only have ONE forum account per ea mythic account, instead of creating multiple accounts elsewhere.

    Some people have multippe UO accounts. I believe there is a guy with 24 accounts. One such person can significantly distort the results here. And they already have the accounts..don't even have to make them, like elsewhere.

    Unless you have 24 master accounts you can't.  Your login is based on Master Accounts not UO Accounts.

    It would save a lot of wasted electrons if Broadsword would just publish the percent log ons for each client, they should have the numbers. After all this web site can tell what browser your using.
    The actual numbers of log ons would be secret financial info but just a % number shouldn't be ok.

    This will never happen EA does not tell you how many subs it games has.  There is enough people using each client that closing one client over another will close UO and UO knows it.  Polls here or on Stratics prove nothing because not every player uses these forums and you leave out the Asian player base.  What is the problem with 2 clients?  does it ruin your game play knowing someone else may be playing another client?  I am just thankful that they are playing and I could care less which client the use.

    They could display login type metrics, such as which client is being used, if they displayed it as a percentage without giving the actual number of logins. They could do that for a lot of things.

    Regardless, Mesanna has repeatedly stated that the clients are pretty much evenly split...and in this instance3, she has no real reason to obfuscate.

    There is a lot of things they could do but don't and telling us numbers is one they do not do.  I can't say yea or no about the split but IMHO Mesanna said they were split so neither side had a I told you so moment and left it at that.

    As for the client split.. the CC was finally updated and will receive more updates now. So I wonder if that changes the usage.

    You don't have an option for BOTH so I didn't vote..as I play both :)

  • InLorInLor Posts: 341
    Yes, some have pointed that out. I had in mind "Which client do you prefer to play, if you have to choose?".. but worded it this way.

    All my accounts under this master account all login into this person.  It ha already been proven, sorry.

    well... if the client wasn't used much, it wouldn't be getting updated with every patch. in development, if there is no return on work, the work is dropped. simple business, no need a poll.

    you are incorrect. Login for this forum absolutely is per master account.

    Yes, that was already said. :)

    EC can't remember how to do anything in CC now.
  • Acid_RainAcid_Rain Posts: 44

    CC for 90% of my gaming but EC w/ Pinco's for farming mats. The auto loot agent just can't be beat. I made 500 gorgon lens last week farming mats when it would of taken me a month using the CC.

    The CC looks nicer to me. Less eye candy but also more functional for my play style.

    I still can't stand how all males in the EC look like they're squatting to take a dump under their robes.

    I play EH, but it drives me up the wall how the paperdoll of female characters who wear boots look like they've stuffed their legs into sausage casings. I dye the boots black so they blend with the background. Wish I could stand to have my characters wear colored boots.

    At least in the EC female characters stand tall. Shoulders back in a look of confident control, they look proud and formidable. My guys look constipated with bowel issues, hunched over looking for the closest toilet.

    EC has a legacy (CC) option for the paper dolls. It has legacy option for containers, targeting, chat - many things.  You can even have the look of CC spell/ability icons scattered all over the place if you make each hotbar 1-icon only and put it where ever you want. Don't need any extra UI for these, just have to dig around in options a bit.

    I use CC to check my deco because some things don't sit the same, and I also check my outfits to make sure neither client looks horrid on me. I'm vain like that. (For example, my favorite EC long curly hair turns out to be the fro in CC. Nothin against the fro, but not my style.) I also use CC for house customization because EC fails. EC health bars are constantly hiccuping and require a relog to fix. EC all names has issues. EC circle of trans is a bit of a joke.

    However, CC has issues of its own and for me the pros of EC far outweigh CC.

    I play CC because I think the art is fantastic, it is nostalgic.   But I will say EC functionality is luring me over.
  • PinkertonPinkerton Posts: 100
    Also EC art/animations/graphics are ugly as sin.
  • TanagerTanager Posts: 210
    Most EC art seems to be the same to me as CC. The landscape, creatures, and spell animations are the only differences that I notice. Things like container art and character screen can be set to CC artwork. Most items and building aspects look basically the same to me, though.

    I like some CC art more than EC, but mostly I like EC art more. EC Cu Sidhe for example is just lovely. EC hyru though... not so much lol. But then, I have not been playing UO for as long as others, so the nostalgia factor is different for me.

    I did not know I could use CC player Art in EC.  I guess I should give it another chance.

    I used that for awhile, and it was nice, until I discovered that dragon scale armor is shown as plain ugly armor on the female paper doll, which is what my main character wears. It works for male characters, though.

    I would put all efforts into upgrading CC to have all the features of EC, and then kill EC. I've given EC a chance a million times. It's simply an abomination. I don't like 80% of the graphics. While the 2d art is actually in style (retro) and aged pretty well, the 3D just looks dated.

    It's not just aesthetics either. Many things don't look right in EC in a functional sense. Pet colors, armors, hues. Next, the gameplay doesn't feel or look right. The characters are too big for the mounts. They look dorky. The walking/running feels completely out of sync. The legs don't actually land on the ground, they glide. The gait is all wrong. It goes on and on.While the CC has the stop-motion framerate (this can be upgraded), it just feels snappier, tighter and smoother to play in.

    Back to the graphics. Here's a simple example, the energy vortex:
    CC
     
    EC


    CC: A cool, actual vortex-like looking graphic
    EC: Hazy blue bloud with sparkles. 

    Yeah, no. There is no end to examples like this, where the EC version is just shabby, whack, unfitting... you name it.

    I would revamp the classic client, call it Classic Client Enhanced. Allow for macros/settings to be copied over from EC and add all top EC features (grid containers, zoom, screen resize, etc.).. then dump EC already. I would replace some of the CC art where it clearly seems fitting and aesthetically an upgrade (certain tiles, creatures), etc.
