Hi I had the impression that the Ultima guild was a player run organization, the same as Portal Seekers or the guilds I’m in.
I’ve had two people now tell me that this is a dev affiliated/supported organization.
The first time it was someone who price matched their shop to the Ultima Exchange on the reasoning that “those are the prices the devs have set”.
The second time it was because I heard someone say “I’m going to give ultima a piece of my mind when i can actually get to finata” during yesterday’s connectivity issues.
This caused me to mention the first conversation and the person I was talking to said “yes, they are dev affiliated that’s why you can contact james directly there.”
I went to look at the gleambow prices there and saw the contact boxes today, looks like a great idea for some real, on the spot, in game feedback.
But I want to know, really without asking a lot of confused people or in game rumors, if there is any actual association or affiliation between the Ultima guild, and the producers/developers of the game.
