Hi all, I logged into Ultima Online many many years ago, in 1998 I think it was (I still have the box on my shelf...! The Second Age...) and a combination of: - being an easily bored gamer in my early 20's - not really understanding MMOs at the time - dial-up Internet causing really really expensive telephone bills at the time in the UK meant I never really got into it. I've since become a firm MMO player and want to try this game out again as the current MMO's are starting to bore me and ArchAge went from a "woohoo!" in beta to a complete let down on release. I'm pretty sure an open sandboxie type game like UO is what I'm looking for, so here I am! So a few questions for all you old hands: - is a brand new player actually going to have a good time or is everyone else so far ahead I'll never be able to contribute? - are there any guides I can read to get me going? - any hints and tips for a newbie just starting off in this big scary world? :-O - I'm based in the UK, is Europa the right server for me in terms of activity during evenings and weekends GMT? Is Europa active at all? I've not actually sub'd or started yet, just getting a feel for the right way to start before I take the plunge, probably this weekend! TIA!
