Players May Now Flaunt Their Hard-Earned Accomplishments

Diamond Bar, CA - Dec 04, 2006 Ultimate Baseball Online (UBO) 2006, the world’s only massively multiplayer online sports game for baseball, today unveiled the latest in a series of personalized features for UBO players. UBO characters can unlock and display a variety of colorful and meaningful virtual trophies based on the accomplishments of their online game baseball characters. The trophy case will also give additional visibility to prestige awards, such as UBO Player of Year, which are selected by the entire UBO community.

"Players spend countless hours playing UBO and accumulating all kinds of statistics, just like in the real game," said CEO Andy Wang. “The trophy case is a great way to celebrate those accomplishments.”

UBO baseball characters will automatically earn trophies for batting accomplishments, such as hitting 10 home runs, and pitching feats, such as throwing 100 strikeouts. A third category is for awarded trophies, such as recognition for league play or MVP selection.
With today’s launching of the trophy case, thousands of trophies have been awarded to UBO characters based on their previous UBO performance. Trophies for all UBO players are viewable on their individual character page on the Community/Find Players section of the UBO website www.ultimatebaseballonline.com.

Additionally, players can see their own trophy case in their personalized MyUBO(tm) Web page, which they enter before entering the game. MyUBO, which was launched in November, provides personalized information and social networking for UBO players

About Ultimate Baseball Online 2006

Ultimate Baseball Online 2006 is a free-to-play massively multiplayer online sports game. In UBO, baseball enthusiasts and gamers compete in 3D virtual stadiums. With stunning graphics and surround-sound audio reactions from the crowd, participants control customized characters for each position and compete together against other UBO gamers. Players use an avatar to bat, pitch, field, run, steal and perform any baseball action. Participants can practice, play pick-up games, join or found their own teams, compete against rival teams, play in specialized tournaments, and win league championships in post-season play. Gamers create their own characters and build their skill level (player stats) through successful play on the field against other real human players. Unlike current video games that aim to simulate professional sports, UBO delivers a first-person perspective of a character, created and developed by the player, interacting online in real-time with teammates and opponents.

Over the past three years, Ultimate Baseball Online has been played by people throughout the world. UBO has seen strong participation in the United States, Canada, Taiwan, Korea, England, Italy, South Africa, Brazil, Australia and many other countries.

Darrell Evans, a two-time Major League All-Star ('73 & '84) and World Series champion (1984), serves as UBO’s Baseball Ambassador. "Ultimate Baseball Online really does capture the feeling of being a member of a team,” said Evans. “Video games are usually a solitary experience. UBO gives players a great appreciation for the nuances of each position, as well as an understanding of the teamwork that is involved in playing the sport of baseball successfully. And best of all, as an online game with three virtual seasons per year, you can play competitive baseball year round.”
