UOC Review - This shard has had a hard start, there were several scandals relating to burning their donators from the previous name/version/shard.  Be warned, this is the same shard as the old UO Shadowage that was run by Punkte and Vorspire.  The shard failed and they did a money grab, then just closed the shard.  They then announced they were opening a new shard called Ultima Shards Multiverse.

This group has a long history of bad behavior and horrible reputations, you should avoid this shard completely.
This shard reports fake player counts and has a very low population.  They claim they are developers but, cant seem to keep the shard online, the core is full of bugs and used the amateur ServUO core with Vorspire's Vita Nex core, which has been proven to be full of bugs and unstable

This shard closed and reopened several times.  It had a lot of hype, but ultimately failed.  The playerbase was very angry with the owner Punkte, as you can read on the UO Shadowage Review http://uocentral.com/forum/index.php?topic=135.0

UPDATE:

Punkte tried to rename the UO Shadowage shard to ultima-shards and recruit scripters to help fix the code mess.  He reopened the same AOS shard and started over with a new name, but the same issues still persist

They seem to still be working on this project, but there are too many bug fixes and uncertainty to enjoy this shard.  Bad reputation and Low population

Vorspire is also working on this project and has a very bad track record for running shards and closing them, he claims this was not the same project as Shadowage and had nothing to do with the failed shard, but the following posts clearly show he was lying

Vorspire: I came in at the end of a failing shard, by that time it was too late to
save Shadowage

Vorspire: I didn't work at Shadow Age and the players who are now playing at Shards
have been reimbursed. This has nothing to do with me.

Vorspire: Shadowage is not the same as Multiverse

Also, Shadowage != Multiverse. It is a new project with a new team.

"Shadowage != Multiverse. It is a new project with a new team"...Punkte it still
there and was the previous owner...

If Shadowage=Multiverse then all the garbage from that mess is true. Even if you
erase the negative info on the old forums and redirect it does not make it less true?

irishdog
Just because punkte is on the team does not mean that it is a successor to the
older shard

Punkte
Trust me, I get that some people will be upset that they put hundreds of hours on
it. I've put thousands of hours on it and its my baby. Last thing I want is to see
a wipe, but its going to really allow Shadow Age to thrive again, under a different
name, but nonetheless its still Shadow Age.

Vorspire: Shadowage is not the same as Multiverse

Dante: You are an idiot and a liar, the domain uoshadowage.com is forwarded to Ultima
Shards Multiverse project, on top of that your wiki states "Welcome To Ultima Shards
:AOS, Ultima Shards builds on the community and systems of UO Shadow Age and
AOS:Redux"
