    Transfer tokens and shard shields.

     My thoughts exactly transfers tokens with a shard shield chaser did more damage to the game and the communities than anything else.  And that is coming from a guys that transfers a lot with store tokens and shield tokens.  I would love to see store tokens removed and shields changed to giving some reward like random minor arties up to doom arties.

     Also high up there and more just annoying............ Haven being destroyed and the Hobo camp known as New Haven being born.  And the Destruction of Despise and replacing it with a mini game.

    Without transfers, old shards would have died out long ago.

    Second you are basically telling them, “Coming from a person that supplies you with a bunch of revenue through your store, I would like you to shut off that revenue stream and take it off your balance sheet...because.”

    The "Trade Oligarchy (almost) only" (1) STS system as it is now, is, IMO, both a co-cause of the "peripherical" Shards slow withering - the T.O. systematical depredation of everything of value (e.g. Event Rares) that don't respawn to resell it on ATL - and a good part of why those Shards are not completely dead (massive items farming - or worse - is more "discreet" if conducted out of Capitol Shard ATL premises). Happened in almost every old enough human empire, be it real (Rome), or fictional (Panem).

    A good solution to revitalize the "provincial" (respect to ATL) Shards is MORE inter-shard mobility for MORE people at WAY LOWER prices & account age restrictions.

    (1) I'm really curious to know how many of the STS-aged accounts of people that quit UO have been bought and consolidated in the years by the T.O. with R.W.M.. That, or those few Traders were obsessive geniuses that planned UO control 20 years ago and opened dozens of accounts in UO first years. I believe that my curiosity on this topic will never be satisfied... :)

    Without transfers R.M.T sites wouldn't exist.  That's why some people argue to keep them, wonder why that is?  LOL

    I was always disappointed with the lack of a real PVE story-line that could be considered the main story, aside from player and coordinator created content.  The lack of good quests was dis-enchanting.  Coming back and seeing quests expanded upon was a nice welcome, but still a widely missed opportunity for the game to stay interesting and grow.

    Honestly, it's a shame the game was sold to EA.  EA is notorious for poor game content.  I think that was the Ultima franchise's biggest mistake.  

    Nostalgia, the tamer changes, and housing keep me interested.  One of the hugest things going for UO right now is the fully rendered non-instanced housing and the animal taming engine that you can get sunk into for months.  

    Elder Scrolls, another obsession of mine, has player housing that is pretty interesting, but quite expensive.  Final Fantasy 14 has housing and it's great.

    UO's housing though is still really enjoyable after all these years.

     And I thought you were going to say changing the Kirin from a horse to what it is now but that just does not fit with the Ph.. :)

        Nope to late for that. And what I would do would not be popular among many........... Particularly RMTs.  I would make everything but the character, vet rewards, soul stones, the stable, and what the character is wearing shard bound.
