|FYI :: Information Regarding Banning of Exploiters –|
Recently, we completed a search to expose a number of players in the game who have been using an exploit commonly referred to as “duping” on the North America Shards. This exploit allows players to abuse systems in UO to gain an unfair advantage against honest players, greatly hindering UO’s economy. Currently, all accounts flagged by this system have been suspended pending further investigation. Each account will be thoroughly investigated individually before a determination is made whether to ban the account permanently or reinstate it. Every effort is being made (such as checking each account individually) to ensure that we do not erroneously ban accounts, while at the same time removing those accounts that are truly guilty. At this time, emails are being sent out to the holders of the suspended accounts.
We expect to have all investigations completed by the end of this week. The total number of accounts affected by this action is less than 250. We estimate that after the duped items attached to these accounts are removed from the game, over 50% of the gold on these shards will be removed from the economy.
We are committed to removing from the game those who chose to exploit Ultima Online and will continue to do so in the future. We thank all of you for your patience during this matter and assure you that we will conduct these final investigations in a thorough and fair manner for each individual account holder.
× I got banned too. OSI won’t tell me why. But anyways I got my account back after a few days.
