Lord of Ultima in Beta

Lord of Ultima is now in beta, offering an online strategy game that uses the name of the famed series, some would argue in vain, since Ultima has always been about role-playing. The game is developed by EA's Phenomic Studio, and word is: "Lord of Ultima is an online strategy game where you build your own unique city and play with thousands of other players. Join now and rule a mighty empire which you can access from wherever and whenever you want. All you need to enter is a normal web browser..." Thanks Rock, Paper, Shotgun.

I remember Ultima Online and miss it dearly. Unfortunately it no longer exists, just an empty shell with the same name.

It used to be to get the best stuff you had to go to a crafter. Actually some things like cloaks you could only get from crafters.
Now you can buy just about anything a crafter can make from an NPC for way cheaper than a crafter can make it, or the item is on a PC vendor that they got from a boss spawn.

If ripping the soul out of it wasn't bad enough, they released this "great" new client which has had it's interface downgraded to the level of other MMOs base interface. One of the things I always missed when playing other MMOs was UO's easy interface. Unfortunately that is gone now.

I also liked the clothing and colour assortment, but that's gone too. They put a temporary hue system into the new client and were working on a proper one, but it has since been dropped just leaving the horrible temporary system in place.
