I look at my stratics account, and it's been nearly a full year since I've logged on Stratics, and a full two years since I've logged onto UO. I'm considering returning, from the Updates I've read, many good things have happened. I've a few questions before I return though. 1. Is the general community larger or smaller than two years ago? Even at luna bank on many shards you could rarely find someone to talk to. Except on Siege, which I began playing, shortly before I quit playing . 2. Are there still incredibly overpowered templates, or is the PvP community generally balanced out now? 3. 4/6 Casting still available, or does my super secret ninja PvM/PvP template need to be tweaked . As for my own general life, I've been in and out of 2 Bands now, The first due to driving 40 miles, two-ways, twice a week, and the general cost of gas at the time. The second due to lack of experience from bandmates. Just today, I was offered some modeling work, so, I will update later on how that deal is going, and also a little bit of web and graphical design work. It should be interesting to see how this all stems out, and if I get back into UO, I may once again try for a GM position. It's nice to be back .
