Siege Population

Discussion in 'UO Siege Perilous' started by Tairon, Feb 18, 2009.

    My impression of Siege population is:

    KOC 10-12 pvpers, sundry farmers
    TNT 6-8 pvpers, sundry farmers
    JSV 4-6 pvpers, some hardcore non pvpers :Yeah Gwen!
    TDO 4-6 pvpers
    Gil et al. 4 pvpers, 200 really hard to find non-pvpers :)
    LOW 8-10 pvpers, sundry farmers

    If I missed any groups of any size I am sorry. My guess is that in prime time on a good night you could have as many as 50 pvpers, but we don't often see them all on at once. I would really like to see the shard login screen show how many players are logged in on each shard at the time you are choosing shards plus perhaps the peak number for that day.

    My numbers are not meant to provoke anyone. Perhaps we can get a clear picture of actual players, and number of characters.

    Thanks,

    Thanks for giving a straight answer I guess Ill pass on coming back. Doesnt seem like theres enough players. how many hours would one have to play to find someone in non peak hours?

    You missed NEW who fields about 10 at any one time
    and several small but active ESL guilds.
    You also missed the thieves guilds in there.
    Oh and the "my shard is down" crew

    Dont forget there are whole guilds who don't use Stratics. GOSH?

    I've even seen the guild tag 'OTF' by the shop a couple of times.
    If you're doing a head count, not pvp. Terry and I have 2 chars each. Mine are crafters, his are pvm.

    Sundry is just mix of various things. Some drug store used to say sundries meaning the sold other stuff besides drugs.

    ah I just figured it was some canadian lingo, given that tairon is a traitor....and by traitor I mean canadian! I dont even capitalise the word, thats right! I have single handedly striped a country of its proper noun status.

    Seriously though-HOOOOAH USA!

    Enjoyed a 2 hour x4 vs x6 last night.. (x4 = 4 groups of 6, x6 = 6 groups of 6).. Can't imagine PvP on server with a two digit population.

    For all this talk of low Siege population, I will say one thing positive.

    Today at about 8pm PST, there were 14 NEW characters (not including leaders) in game all at the same time for a little while. That's the most I've seen online at the same time in the 1.5+ years I've been active with NEW - especially during an off-peak time.

    I'd quite like to do a proper head count actually, just to disprove the 'double figures' doom and gloom lot. UO.com is updated daily but only records chars active in the past 30 days. If I had a *full* list of active guilds I could do it. But the 'guild roster' on the paper doll lists every Siege guild that there's ever been, and there's about 40 pages of them! As a reasonably close estimate I'd take the number of active chars and divide by 3, as an average number of accounts per person. I know a lot have one or two accounts, but some have more.

    We had, i believe, 5 or 6 members of THIEF/CHAD on this morning. (Morning for me, night for you)
