Hi there. I used to play UO back when it was still all about archer sets and tank mages. I've recently come back to see how things have changed and I thought you guys might want a little info on how it all looks from my angle with regards to Siege. First, its actually pretty hard to find where the online community is. The official boards are dead for Siege, which gives players the impression that the server is too. After that, I figured I'd try Stratics and I found an old forum that is closed down. Only after following the link there did I find a pulse here on these forums. I'm a pretty determined person, so I was able to find it, but someone with a passing interest in Siege might dismiss it due to the lack of life. Next, when I am in Brit there is NO one around. I mean, on small player servers I've seen more people mucking about. That, again, leaves new players feeling like the world is dead (fancy brit bank btw). Well, Ill continue this after I'm home. So I guess I was wondering if you guys actively promote the server. Its a shame that so many left UO with a bitter taste in their mouth. I probably should have just started a character on Siege all those years ago instead of hopping around themeparks waiting for the next sandbox. I think this attitude is why Siege isn't a hugely popular server. Its a sandbox still with a dangerous world that presents a challenge. So many people are looking for that exact thing. So where do people hang out these days? Are there places where new people congregate to find friends and people to adventure with? Whats the server population like compared to the other shards? Any advice on my character? I started out with mining magery and blacksmithing just because I didn't know what I wanted to do. Unfortunately, I can't even equip the pickaxe to mine because my str is too low lol. Wish the 7 day delete thing was gone by now. Any way to get around it? I'm surprised that its still 1 character only on Siege. Doesn't make much sense at this point in time. That is the one thing that pulls me towards Chessy or Catskills. I prefer the Siege mechanics, but Id like to have another character to craft. Anyway, any advice would be great. Thanks for listening to the ramble.
