    (Having player-owned houses control access to the Abyss is bad design. Players can make the house private, not place a teleporter, quit the game, or die. If you rely on players to be nice, dependable, and immortal, you are going to be disappointed. If any devs are reading this, please consider permanent gates to parts of the Abyss, or making parts of the Abyss markable, or a transport item for the Abyss that is equivalent to the Eodon crystal or Ilshenar jawbone. )

    The transition for closed accounts to Endless Journey accounts has begun and will continue over the next 24 hours. We appreciate your patience as we work through this process. You will not be able to login until the account has been processed.

    I got an error message aswell. The account is either not linked to a master account, not paid for or banned for cheating. Reason 1 and 3 are not true. ;)

    Anyways, thank you Larisa, I'll just wait. ;)

    So it's going to be just a log in and play, no account management to have to deal with to activate EJ accounts?

    Honestly I don't know..but I would think that once an account is processed the system will recognize it and you should be able to just log in....at least I HOPE that's how it works....there's no information either way regarding this so your guess is as good as mine....they did take account management down to update it so I am ASSUMING that's why....but who knows with Account Management :/

    Oh, I hope you're correct. I hate that account management :D.
    I also have all mine for the past 18yrs written down on paper.
    "crosses fingers" you're correct.

    Yeah, 24 hours, just like they stated in their news.
    This isn't done manually, they'll let a script run over their DB and just solve conflicts manually, should some pop up...

    This is not a good user experience on release day.

    ue.jpg

    If the down time is related to EJ it should say so. NOT being down at all on a release day would be better. Just more confusion... not good.

    The account center went down 2 days ago...they probably started it then because 24 hours is not long enough I don't think ;)

    I think they are HOPING it will be done tomorrow.....but we shall see.

    And did you say script??? I thought that was illegal! ;)

    ""
    Speaking of housing, I am sure you have noticed several of the Human/Gargoyle plots in Ter Mur are empty on some shards. I have placed a Raffle Stone in the plot locations, if you are interested in trying for one of these plots please visit the location and sign up. These houses will NOT be grandfathered houses so make sure you have an account that can accept a house. You must show up to accept the house with the account you signed up with, otherwise I will move down to the next player in line.

    They most probably said 24 hours to have a buffer, should some unexpected issues arise.
    I don't really care when they started. The important thing is to finish within the announced 24 hours. ;)

    Has anybody heard of ANY truly new players now that EJ has launched? I'm betting there are currently ZERO. Rumor has it one guy thought about it, took one look at the account management mess and said, and I am quoting "To hell with this, I'm OUTTA HERE"!

    I tired to make a trial to see if that was the way to make a new, free EJ account and it turned up an error. Then I remembered I made a trial account that was still valid. It let me in and I got a gump saying "welcome to Endless Journey" .... bank opened properly. I was admonished when I tried to join a chat room besides HELP.

    I also looked over the account page which shoulda been updated to have a toggle between paid and EJ accounts but no dice. And anyone notice it has this comment when you try make a new account..... you get this email. ..

    I made a trial account as well and it has all the EJ restrictions. In account management for end date, it has NA rather than an actual date.

    i think its funny.
    EJ has been up and going for several hours now and i just went through 20 old accounts and none can log in.

    i would have imagined that they would have had the DB updated PRIOR to the release so that when they actually have the release people could log in, no?

    thats like opening up a restaurant and telling people that you wont actually have food there to serve for another 2 days.
    but your open now.
    whaaaaaaat?

    Thats why your account is EJ yet. They said it can take up to 48 hours for existing accounts to be converted (Which yours is since you made it before EJ was turn on)

    Per uo.com:
    Update 4/5/2018 6:00pm ET: The account transition process is continuing. Based on current processing rates we expect this process to take as long as the next 48 hours to complete. We will update this post when the process has fully completed. Thank you for your continued patience while we work through this process.

    I was guessing 3 days...guess I was just about right....they have a LOT of accounts to process through, it's gonna take time.

    Since the starter kit is so cheap for what is in it then I hope they drop prices on some of the other things. Shard transfers and Mythic tokens would sell like crazy at half or less than what they are now, and pricing would be more consistent for what you get.

    I think once the account management site is back up then we'll be able to log in..no sense trying over and over to log into dormant accounts until then since new EJ accounts need go to through that to get online, so we have to wait another few days.

    I seem to recall Mesanna saying that they would be able to send out mass email's to all former email's that had an Ultima Online account inviting them back to play. Has anyone actually received an email telling them about Endless Journey?

    Do you see everyone complaining that it isn't ready yet because the database is being processed as we speak? Likely they won't send out email notifications until things are a bit more settled and fully implemented.
