Question & Answer Corner
- 1. What do we do if a code is invalid?
- We have seen a lot of codes that are fraud lately, if you are not purchasing the code from Origin and use a 3rd party site then more than likely you are buying a bad code.
- 2. Are you still accepting castle designs?
- Yes we are, you can draw it out on paper if you wish, suggesting different stone would be nice also. Different Windows etc.
- 3 . A player on Siege asked for Frostwood and various other resources to be added to the merchant ships?
- We will review all the loot on the ships when we revamp that system.
- If you have an account that was terminated by CS over a year ago and would like to have it back please contact support Here and give them the details and identify the account as yours, depending on the termination we will remove the restriction from your account so you may open it again.
- All Sovereigns purchased from Origin have to be entered on the Account Management page. You can not enter these in game.
- Anyone that is trying to reopen an account please make sure you send all the information to [email protected] so we can have a record of this. In the original request to support if you do not know your secret word please ask for a hint. Give them all the information to identify the account as yours so there will not be a lot of delays.
- Anyone that does not get their codes from Origin please follow this link to resolve the Issue..
- If you have any in game questions or issues please either page in game or email [email protected]
- For any feedback to content put in game please send it to [email protected]
- Regarding Origin orders, codes, and third party resellers.
Recently some of the player base may have noticed that an Origin store purchase they have made did not arrive or complete as expected. A confirmation or code email has not been received and you are wondering what may have occurred with your order. The Origin store enacts reviews on all transactions to safeguard against fraudulent purchases, and these reviews may take up to 72 hours. Unfortunately our Billing department is not able to expedite or circumvent this process, however players who have questions or concerns regarding a store purchase can contact Origin support for assistance using the below link: Link
When prompted for a product, choose Origin. Next choose your platform, and select ‘Orders’ as the topic. You can further specify your issue in the subsequent fields before speaking with an agent.
We would also like to reiterate that the Origin store is the only guaranteed provider of codes for Ultima Online. The validity of a code purchased from a third-party seller (be it a friend, in-game acquaintance, or recommended site) cannot be guaranteed. Furthermore, any codes we find to have be fraudulently obtained will be disabled and an account that applies any of these codes will have that code removed from said account. This can result in the loss of gametime, character slots, expansion access, Sovereigns (and the items purchased with them), in-game items and more. Please be advised that we cannot assist with any issues stemming from codes purchased via non-Origin means; you will be required to contact the vendor from which you purchased the code for further assistance.
