    I bought a few random things on Amazon because they were good deals.  Would definitely buy some UO items if they had a sale.
    Focus on what you can do, not what you can't.
  • Long time ago, EA did something and BY mistake some of the UO items had a special, messana found out and removed all UO items from EA store.

    There is only a few things EA sales anymore as most of it went to the UO Online store.  Maybe UO should do a Black Friday

    It has nothing to do with her, she does not control the EA store prices

    Why ?
    "Black Friday" is only a US (and to a much lesser extent North American) thing.
    An opportunity for retailers to get rid of old stock to make way for the Christmas stock and get some impulse sales. 

    That really doesn't apply to UO.
  • Wish they had a sale on Sovereigns, or on Potions of Glorious Fortune, Soul Stones, or Mythic Character Tokens/Stable Slot Increase Tokens.

    Not exactly true anymore. In the last about 10 years at least the USA "Cultural Colonization" of the West has "imposed" the "Black Friday" to many of its "Vassal Nations" too, aided in this by Amazon & Co..

    Last time they had such a Sale was by the Christmas of 2-3 years ago.

    Yep, you are wrong on this one.
    She made 1 phone call or whatever they do and all UO items were gone

    I remember that first year she made that call, everything was taken off the discount except 5 charge Forged Metal of Artifacts. they stayed on the sale for a few years, but everything else she had removed.
    A Goblin, a Gargoyle, and a Drow walk into a bar . . .

    Never be afraid to challenge the status quo

  • she made a call for sure, like she did when the gamer time codes were not working (ran out) recently. But she does not create the codes as it's controlled by EA. So I AM right. She has a way to get through to EA that we dont, But she doe snot control thinks like Black Friday offers

    She does not work for EA

    Yeah I remember going to load up on stuff and suddenly everything disappeared and was down for quite some time to the point the sale was over long before the items were back.

    That’s were the “there’s only so many codes”came in.  Seemed sketchy at best.
