Ea swapping Origin for the EA App.

So apparently EA is getting rid of the Origin client for their new App, but I noticed Ultima Online is not in there.
It's been a long time since the App was released (I installed it back then, and then went back to Origin because it was bad) and they said eventually they would have all games there, but apparently not UO...

After the change, where will I be able to get game time?

    Good time to move to steam. All games could be there. But EA is arrogant.
    Focus on what you can do, not what you can't.

    Went to the EA site and saw the pop up stating Origin is closing it’s doors soon.  So just what does that mean to those of play UO?

    Ultima is listed in the games - MMORPG category, but all it does on mouse over is a link to either the forums or official site.

    Hopefully we will still be able to buy game time? or sovs?

    Same name but this is the Origin app where you can log in and play games from your library.  Their attempt at Steam.  They are replacing it with EA App.

    We will still buy stuff from the Origin store.

    Which I happened to visit only a few days ago, Sunday in fact, to purchase game time for 2 accounts.

    Also, UO was not on the Origin gaming App. So it probably will not be on the EA app.

    It's an app in the background where you can add friends and communicate with them. EAs attempt at Steam.

    We will still load UO like we have been.

    No you can not launch UO from the EA page.  :D  We lucky they knew it was one of their games.

    Or you could post something helpful instead.  You have to find the specific game you want on any site with multiple games.

    It remembers your card, have to put in the 3 digit verify code.

    Seems like a seamless transition to me.

    Well it used to take you very slowly mind you to the correct spot so yeah it's kinda a crappy downgrade and even your "helpful " reply somehow turned into sugar trolling

  • Did I miss it, or is there actually not a "Search" on that page? You have to actually scroll through the list of names? You cannot just search by name?

    It's no wonder Steam is kicking EA's butt.

    I hope there is a search when using the app.
    EA should get over themselves and go to Steam.

    Teaching you how to make a positive post is not trolling. After you show people how to do X, then you can put your opinion in.

    Some of us speculated the "Biggest and Boldest" would be UO going on Steam.  That would bring UO to a large audience especially with EJ.  It's not like UO is going to be a star on this EA App.

    And it would not have taken 5+ years. :D

    Me expressing displeasure is ok. neither the developers or the players need you to protect them from me. is it seriously so difficult for you to simply not reply to my post?

    What is terrible about it? Took me 2 minutes or less to find the place to buy stuff for UO. It's a bookmark now, so will go right to it from now on.

    I had no problem with it.  All my info was already there and it was no harder finding UO than it was on Origin.  So what is your problem other than you hate UO and EA

    The fact that it transferred your info surprised me.

    I tried going to the Origin Store today and it rerouted me to an EA page about the app.  I tried installing the app and am having no luck with it.  I am on the library wifi, however, and they have many ports blocked.  Does the app require certain ports to be open when I cannot use here?

    Did you try the link I posted? 

    You do not have to download the app. Unless  you want to play their other games.

    Use the link Pawain posted, it will take you to the correct place to purchase codes - and will re-direct to the correct page if you're not in USA.
    The link to EA store on the uo.com front page also now goes to that page instead of the EA home page.

    Shouldn't the button we hit in game take us there like it used to

    the button in game takes you to the account management page.
    I believe it always did?  Are you mixing up your links?
    The link the Devs have kindly edited for us used to take you to the EA home page, the one now inviting you to sign up for their app. It now takes you to the far more useful page, for us, as you can see from the bottom of my screen print.
