From what im hearing, all of the issues that i had problems with are still very much here. Pvp is still broken, alot of skills are still broken, there are huge balance issues and the first thing i see, is that they are adding SLOT MACHINES.
I'm sure you can sympathise. I may well be out of line saying all of that, but...
What would be funny is if anyone who wins the jackpot their location is broadcasted to the entire server and they can't bank anywhere near where they won it. Nor can they teleport by any means, and they're encumbered. That would be entertaining.

I have so many fans.
I Don't Bite, I Rant!
Don't understand the juvenile fascination of wanting to mix every activity, that people think they are champions at irl, into the game. Whats next? Minesweeper terminals at the bank?
I feel a lack of vision on AVs part when they add stuff like this. Makes me feel sad.
AV is adding things like slot machines, because they know, that not everyone in this game want to do pvp all the time.
Do you know, why UO is still alive ? Why there are people still playing this old game ?
Because you can do anything in it. It is never getting boring. People can have pvp, chat with friends, can do roleplaying, stacking up mushrooms, have fun with anything they want.
Most games get boring after some time of playing even for the hardcore people.
With implementing stuff like this, people can actually do something else after getting bored of grinding mobs or raiding cities.
Slot machines and all other things like this, will help people to chill a bit, BUT still STAY IN GAME.
And this is the most important part: "Forcing" people to stay in game, will even help people like you, to find some people to play with or against. It encourages pvp and stop people from thinking the server is empty.
I for one welcome our new slot machine overlords.
Blood Of Kings
It seem a bit idiotic to me.

The best idea, on this topic, put out in the cast is one about the potential to upload app games designed by players via a dev created api.
