No advanced warning given, but Buc's black market no longer functioning

Ouch. I saved enough for a few statues.

I could see the beacons and crates going away now. But they should leave the pirate for a while.
 
wow that is really messed up, so your telling me that a person who farmed 20 million points wasted his entire playtime cause now he cant buy anything? and with no warning? what about the new players who just came back to game and hadn't had a chance to try the event because of the halloween/thanksgiving/christmas events and now will never get to enjoy the content cause it was removed and without even so much as a warning, and whats even worse is the question was asked of the devs a while back and one of them specifically stated that it would NOT be going away, I would look for the post but I don't know how to go about it.what a way to slap the players in the face.

actually I found the post it is on the UO forums discussion/comment/34468/#Comment_34468

halfway down the first page Mariah states that not all of the content was going to go away that some of it was permanent etc there was a lengthy discussion on it that led me to believe that after all the holiday craziness I would be able to enjoy the content and get me some tritons, or other things that I may have wanted, I guess I was wrong

You realize this could be and most likely is a bug right?
 
IF that is the case then I apologize I am a newly returned player and I am not used to UO Bugs, but in other games that I have played over the years I have never seen an entire series of content "PAID CONTENT" included just up and disappear, I understand the concept that part of the event was the paid for content like the ships themselves and the pirates, but I wasnt aware that the actual Black Market vendor for which the whole High Seas content revolves around was not permanent. MAYBE we will get lucky and it will get fixed, IF NOT then I forsee tritons becoming like Banes where the returning player has no hope of ever owning one unless they fork out hundreds of millions of gold.

World of warcraft had this very same issue today: A bug caused the rated PvP season to end unannounced + early.

I don't think it's a bug, as i recall the debate, the beacons would stay for the city turn in points, but most of the rewards would go away.

Going to agree with @Dot_Warner and @Promathia. This is just merely a bug as Kyronix has stated, i believe numerous times, that advanced warning would be given. I have faith the dev team will fix this issue once they return from vacation.

Since the devs are still on vacation, it's probably a bug.
It danged well BETTER be a bug!!!!!!!!!!!!! Hours upon hours of gathering chests and accumulating during the whole time and now I can't redeem my points? Ridiculous!

I just turned in some crates and, while the Pirate took them and told me I had x points, he has nothing for sale.

Year ended and the vendor was a content for 2019, somewhere someone set a date in there to end at end of year for some activity that ended the vendors sale list.
