I backed this game the moment I heard about it. I played every incarnation of ULtima that has been created, including UO. While I would read some of the emails I receive while the game was bing created, I intentionally did not participate in any betas because I did not want to burn myself out on this game before it even went live. That said, I have been playing for a couple hours now and I’m seeing people with houses fully decked out in gear and vendors which tells me that there was no wipe. I have little interest in playing on a shard that is already fully established. Is there going to be a server wipe, or are there going to be new shards introduced?
