    Hi! I'm an asian player and totally new to UO. As a new player, I hope to choose a shard which I may fit in the playing time of other players. Is there any suggestion on the shard selection?

    My playing time: 18:00 - 24:00 (GMT/UTC+8)

    I'd start by looking at a time zone map of the world (here) in one window, and the location of all the shards in a 2nd window (here)....

    For instance, the U.S. East coast servers are in -5 UTC and the West coast servers are in -8 UTC. The rest, I trust, you can discern for yourself...

    Oh, and welcome to UO and Stratics !
    You're at the right place to ask questions, and you'll always find someone who will agree with you. In the mean time, you'll learn a lot - just by staying active here (and always check UHall) like you are now.... ;)
