Ultima Online is looking for fresh staff to run live events

This. They're this.

Ever wanted to try your hand at writing content for a production MMO on the fly? Appreciate old games that still maintain staff to create real live events for MMO players? How about be paid to be a really solid roleplayer and community rep? Ultima Online might interest you if so. The venerable 18-year-old game is on the hunt for new Event Moderators — what we called back in my day EGMs, or Event Game Masters.

“We have 6 openings on the EM team, three (3) on Japanese shards and three (3) on US shards. If you would like to apply for an Event Moderator position please send an email to [Mesanna at Broadsword] with a write up of an event you would like to run, including what type of reward you feel is correct for the event. I will need you to give your account names and what shards you play on. Please understand you can not EM on a shard you play.”

As a bonus, you’ll participate with the knowledge that obsessed event item collectors will spend cold hard cash to travel to the shard where you work and beg for free stuff, often ruining your efforts. Hooray!

spider3 breetoplay BKone Hah, I know the feeling! I actually closed down my UO accounts when Glitch came out and really filled the same need for me (housing, crafting, exploration – no combat, but I get combat from every other game anyway). Then Glitch closed, so I was back to UO. I haven’t played an emu in a few years; still on prodo shards. Most of the emus are even more hardcore than the original pre-Tram days, and like you said, you can never know when they will just delete everything anyway, so I just avoid them.
It’s sad that there is nothing even close to it on the market. Wurm, Mabinogi – maybe those are the closest. EQ2. It’s rough.
I can’t believe they are dragging the Steam launch out this long. :( They should’ve done it at the anniversary last year.

breetoplay spider3 BKone  Mmh, you may be right, i’m not saying UO is dead, it just plays very different from what it used to be.Maybe it’s my nostalgia, maybe it’s not I am looking for anymore, but of couse IS still the most complex sandbox with the total freedom of being/doing whatever you like in a virtual world. And I’m looking for a valid alternative since…more than 8 years? Maybe If i didn’t sell my account 8 years a go (i still repent) probably I would still play it.

I tried some private shards and the “uo” Magic there is still alive, but also true, you never know how Long those Server will run and if admin are “playing” fairs.

I really hope the day will come for a brand new Server with steam release :)
Thanks for the update anyway. I’m sure “new Player” if the join a guild and get “boosted” with stuff, they can have a great experience.

spider3 BKone “economy is super inflated and over-itemization is also a big issue”
This has been true for about for about 12 years tbh. There’s a reason most people just buy a stack of bank checks (or I guess checks are gone now, but you know what I mean) from the gold seller sites when returning to the game.
People do sell and trade, though; vendors are still big, and vendor search is spectacular, so that’s definitely hit the spam-sellers at banks. Last year when I played, I made a ton of money doing basic crafting and just stocking my vendors on the daily, so demand is there, at least on the big servers. Most of the trade is done in rares, pscrolls, and arties, though.

BKone spider3  An hard reset is really hard, also because it’s a full sandbox and nobody want to loose the rares and unique items or even server-birth rares ;) But they should adapt the PvE for the current economy  – as new Player you have no hope, doing PvE you will earn nothing, economy is super inflated and over-itemization is also a big issue. I tried to go back playing with a vet account, but the world is just so empty, nobody selling stuff around Banks anymore, actually nobody Needs to sell/trade anything anymore..only PvP and RP could still be interesting in the “modern” UO. I’ll Keep the faith and in the meantime Keep an eye for shardsonline, that could really be the spiritual sucessor..

spider3 Yeah, it’s strange that they don’t do a harder reset every expansion. It’s like a F2P game, a few years pass and you can never catch up to vet players. Or you need a 3 year old account right off the bat.
Tho I really appreciate that my toons are right there where I put them down 10 years ago. In other MMOs my few years old inactive accounts usually go poof …

Everything good about this, but the truth is UO is nowdays a NO-go for any new Player. Noway to live what it used to be, and all the PvE/Loot/Economy is just fucked up. UO on Steam is since more than 1 year planned…if they will finally release it, and make a new “UO STEAM SERVER” where everyone will start from scratch, be assured the glorious UO days will come back..
