    We are having a special on donation coins as we do every year.
    This year we are doing a special on a BULK package.

    http://www.uoforever.com/donate.php

    Enjoy it while it lasts:

    HAPPY HOLIDAYS!



    How do i obtain these special donation items?
    There are two ways you can obtain donation items:

    ONE:
    You buy donation coins via this link : http://www.uoforever.com/donate.php
    Within 24 hours the donation coins will then appear in your players bank.


    TWO:
    Buy donation coins from established Ultima Online Forever players for gold.
    Prices vary, but as of this post the current rate for donation coins is 170k - 190k gold coins per 1,000 donation coins.

    Okay i have obtained donation coins, now how do i buy things?
    You will need to be in the main city you started in (Britain), at the West Bank which has the reputation of being the largest and well known bank within the world. In front of the bank you will see multiple non-player characters standing on stone blocks. By clicking each vendor you can see all items available at that time! Choose wisely, as there are no trade backs!

    Can i sell my donation coins for gold in-game?
    Absolutely. The way we have personally experienced and see it, is those players who are working too much in real life and cannot seem to dedicate the amount of time to be in dungeons grinding day after day are able to donate, then sell those donation coins (for gold) to those players who may not work everyday and who have a lot of time to grind in dungeons.

    In return, those players who cannot donate, simply because they may not have the finances in real life or otherwise, are usually also the same players who have more time for the game compared to the player who does not have the time due to working so much.
    So that is where the balance lies.

    Who the heck would donate to something like this? Why should i donate at all?
    You don't have to. It's a choice we leave up to each individual and we never push it.
    The way we personally see it is that we offer unlimited entertainment absolutely free. You can get days, weeks, months and many players have soaked up years of entertainment at no cost at all to them. This is a game that never ends, and we are consistently adding new content and ways to take your characters further. We have a 99% server up time ratio spanning across 3 solid years while not only maintaining a steady player base and community, but vastly growing it.

    We have personally pioneered taking "private servers" to a professional level which players alike in our opinion, absolutely deserve. When people ask us why they should donate, our usual response is asking them if they go out to restaurants, bars, nightclubs or casinos. Most people do, and the fact is the people who usually ask these questions don't blink at spending 100$+ (A NIGHT) out to eat, or at a nightclub. So donating anything here, for great service, superior marketing, corporate gaming level up time, consistent updates and unlimited entertainment 24/7 whenever you need it- is really not a bad investment. Plus you get the donation coins!

    I have donated, so i am more important than anyone who has not.
    FALSE.
    Many people can now attest to this; just because you donate, no matter if it is 10$ or 10,000$ you are still at the same level and treated the same as those who do not donate at all.

    Why? This is because those who play for 10+ hours a day, create activity on a large scale than those who donate and play for 1 hour a day. This creates a balance, those who can't donate but play a lot are even with those who can't play a lot but donate a lot. This is how we have always seen things, and it works.​

    So where do my donations go?
    At this point we have invested over 200,000$+ back into Ultima Online Forever over 3 years in staff wages, advertising, server fees, and more.
    No private server has ever invested this much into itself in the history of private servers dating back over 15 years.

    We have full time paid staff members going on 2.5 years now which has never been done previously.
    We are very wise on how we market and advertise diligently and consistently.
    We ensure our image is nothing but the best in quality.
    We have not only set the bar high, but we constantly aim to raise it higher.

    As a result of the above, we currently have a constant flow of new players daily, our staff members are honest, experienced and caring people.
    We have been able to deliver content in a very steady flow including an expansion every year
    making our brand is at this point more powerful than ever.

    Your donations are not and will not go to waste. When you donate you are giving hundreds of players who cannot donate the ability to play for free, while contributing to the entire longevity of the entire community!

    This was something that started as a hobby in 2013 and quickly turned into a business
    Because of that business factor, mixed in with thousands of players donating over the years we have been able to
    expand Ultima Online Forever farther than we ever originally thought.

    As an ultimate result we have an amazing, solid community, built from thousands of great individuals that grows every single day.
    We saw a great opportunity and invested wholeheartedly back into the server, the brand, and most importantly- The Gamers.

    Yay! I'll just pretend my suggestion lead to this *wink, wink*.

    Question Shane, probably obvious but does this apply towards the tier rewards? Maybe link that into your post?

    Thanks!

    Yep not for everyone, why we aren't making the entire list on sale is because we actually lowered the price of all donos last year permanently..

    missing 16000 for $100 ... I do think that would be a hot one
    - 'Big fish games' strategy, Its better to sell a million games for a dollar each, then to sell 1000 games for $60 each

    Same here. Not that it will keep me from donating, just not that much at one time. A simple 5-10% increase to the base amounts would be really cool though. 11,000 dono coins for $75 is a steal of a deal I could partake in. Then after the holidays, revert back to normal ;)

    Never mind, Shane posted while I was typing.

    Question, if I am donating... is it easier to track is I use the same character for tiers? Or does that matter?

    Are these characters on different accounts or the same account? The former would be silly hard to track (imo), the latter would make sense.

    Well, I rarely play the character I have used for donating anymore. I also play on a different account the most. Not a big deal if I input that name when I donate but I just want to know whats easier for them to track.

    Pretty sure it's just tied to your paypal account email.

    That seems like it would be the best way. That, or the account name used when you fill out the form, characters get deleted from time to time, but not the account (usually).
