    afternoon = work/school for most people.

    and the stay at home housewives are probably busy getting the kids and supper on the go.

    bad time of the day to evaluate server loads.

    plus the fact that its spring time and everyone is trying to shake off the winter dust off their shoulders!

    Move to LS. Dreamy will answer you, if she is not fighting with Veper, others will gladly kill you.

    General chat is not used by everyone. But, if you ask for a res on LS at night, you may get 5 or more people there to help you.

    GL's typically has a dozen or more ....... um..... folk who will answer a call to come kill you.... but maybe they all got heckled out of Chat.

    One can only hope. But usually they are on in the evening very late and in the am.

    The game needs new players (more players) and it's not going to happen until something is done with how the game looks visually.

    UO has the content but the resolution and the game visually doesn't hold a candle to other games out on the market.

    Until that changes...nothing will change.

    You cannot reasonably define the game being dead by your inability to find a fight on a single Friday Afternoon in May by trying to get one in Global Chat on a shard wherein PvP smack talk in Global Chat is so ridiculously extreme that some have stopped using it. While GL's probably the 2nd largest shard, so your use of that shard can't be faulted, way more people play the game than PvP or use Global Chat, let alone both. Oh and, as others have pointed out, it's a Friday Afternoon in May. At most you could conclude that PvP on GL is dead but even then, your methodology is somewhat flawed and limited.

    Temu, many many people have spread out to other shards to find population. Atl is population rich.

    Try it on Siege and you will always get response unless you are very annoying
    Try also to for advices or something you are looking to buy and you will get response.

    My son is not joking its on allmost all shards .. now I will include atlantic as i have for a few weeks now gone in at morning and noon and found the place with a scant few players. ITs the time of year... school is tossing kids tests for eval both in college and highschool. Those who found jobs and still have them are at work it;s not 9 to 5 anymore sooo hours are spred for people. and they have a big sunny day outside....may is not vacation time for most but it is getting close.. Sunshine and fresh air is a big pull and the comp cant go there. Those who pvp and do factions are pishie cause the dev took their toys... and they are protesting. Most times shards have busy hours and then almost closed for business other hours. Freja is correct a nice croud has decended on Siege .. who knows might be players from your shard taking a in game vacation! Dont get all wound up as soon enough the shards will fill up when it too hot to go outside, vacation is over,school is out, the hollidays are coming ...... wait a minute no hollidays I just got the sun back!

    Ok last but not least is the fact many are not turning on gen chat. Those of us who want to sell stuff have found most dont listen or its all bitchie at each other and ignore u. Beleave me players are there...... just yell castle fall and you will see them coming out of hte woodwork ... but you best have a castle falling or your dead meat if you say that.
