I decided to restart my account yesterday. It’s been about 10 years since I last played regularly. Of course, back then if you didn’t pay for 6 months , they deleted your account so my arsenal of elite armor and weapons (I see “a silver katana of vanquishing” just isn’t what it used to be) was wiped out. Anyway I started in Vesper…not a soul at the bank. I waited around a few minutes…nothing. Hmm…am I on a test server? Quick look at the title bar tells me I’m on Catskills. I run up the road and see a house with some vendors…fully stocked. That’s encouraging, at least someone was here. I walk back thru Vesper and all the way to the bank in Britain. Nobody. It’s 8:00PM CST and back in the day there could be 40+ people here easily. I go thru a moongate to Fel…ran around Britain without seeing anything but animals and your random ettin. While in Fel I went to check out my old “neighborhood”…a group of houses that belonged to me and some friends…all gone of course. Back to Britain in Trammel where I FINALLY see someone else who tells me people hang out in Luna now. Luna is a new one to me but I find it in the moongate and travel there where I run into 4 or 5 people but…wow! Is this what has happened? Did I just catch it at the wrong time? Is everyone in the new lands (I’m not even sure if Stygian Abyss added new lands?). I was all pumped to play again but seeing this was a pretty big buzzkill for me. I had hoped to build up another T-Hunter and meet some people and go on hunts and learn all the new stuff that has changed and maybe join a guild and…*ugh*. I was halfway expecting a pop-up message saying “Congratulations you are one of the final 10 subscribers!”. I don’t want to spend the time grinding if I’m going to just be playing with myself….I can do that without the computer.
