Dark Age, Ultima fan events hit the road

EA Mythic schedules nine 2007 gatherings for each of its long-running massively multiplayer games.

"To Dunkin' Donuts!!!"

Fan gatherings for massively multiplayer online role-playing games give longtime players the chance to meet and share ideas with each other, as well as with the developers who created their virtual playgrounds and then made the decision to revise the rules to the disadvantage of their hard-earned high-level characters. The developers of EA Mythic's Ultima Online and Dark Age of Camelot games will have plenty of opportunities to explain themselves this year, as the studio has announced a series of 18 US fan gatherings (nine for each game) scheduled through November.

While the events will be held on the same days in the same cities, they will be separate from each other. Specific details haven't been announced for most cities, but if the Atlanta events are any indication, EA Mythic will hold back-to-back three-hour gatherings for each game in the same venue. The first gatherings will be held at the Dave and Buster's in the Atlanta suburb of Marietta, GA. For more information, check out EA Mythic's pages for the Dark Age of Camelot and Ultima Online gatherings.

January 27--Atlanta, GA
February 24--New York, NY (coincides with New York Comic Con)
March 24--Rockville, MD
April 21--Philadelphia, PA
May 19--Chicago, IL
July 7--Columbus, OH (coincides with Origins)
August 25--Seattle, WA (coincides with Penny Arcade Expo)
Fall (date TBD)--Austin, TX
November (date TBD)--Orange, CA (coincides with GenCon SoCal)

Ultima is still cool. I play still, and I have played WOW,L2 and FF11. But I can't leave UO. It's got the crappiest gfx, but the best community, best pvp (when not broken), and be what ever character you want without having to make a new one. You never get bored trying new templates. Now that UO is getting a made over and new xpansion, I can;t wait to see all my old friends again from WOW :P 10 years baby :D

AtomicEdge: It's nothing without Garriot. Long live Tabula Rasa. I thought I was the only one thinking like this. It'd be fun to join up with the old Britannian citizens in TR who know what Ultima is.

my first mmo and still the best i've ever played. if they kept the same system of the game but updated it totally with visuals and music like guild wars, i think it would simply storm wow or anything else out of the market.

Yeah, the know not to come to Toronto, Canada because if they did I would punch all the UO devs in the face for what they have done to the game over the past few years. That game used to be so fun but sucks a$$ now... Maybe I should meet them in NYC and give them a peice of my mind

diesil who plays ultima anymore its so boring!!! ----------------------------------------------------------- Ultima actually still has one of the most devote and richest communities in MMOs. A lot of the backwash from WoW (players who quit for reasons their own) usually end up back on Ultima. The skill based, point based system is still one of the best around. While other games are flashy, this game has depth. Not to mention, a face lift coming this spring (hopefully).
