    Welcome to the community! :)

    The developers have never actually given a specific number of how many people play each server, but Atlantic is by far the most active and usually has at least 100 or so people online at most times of day, although some of them might be doing things by themselves, or could be hidden.

    The lower your ping on a shard is, the less lag you will have on that shard. So, whichever shard has the lowest ping is the one you will be fastest on, and whichever has the highest ping is the one you will get the most lag on.

    Hokuto and Yamato seem to be the most populated shards on the Eastern side of the world if your ping is better there, but neither are as active as Atlantic is.

    Yep, there should be lots of people around on Saturday night. the easiest place to find people is at Luna bank, there's always a bunch of people there.

    Another question :)
    - In free shard there a possibility of extern software for macroing. In official UO, macro made only with integrated system?
    - what type of client is most used?

    Yes, in the Official UO the only macros that can be used are ones that are in the game itself. The only exception would be the program called UO Assist which the developers have said is legal. All other 3rd party programs and software would not be allowed.
