Sonoma Dying

    I've seen one or two new players in the 2 months that I've been checking New Haven

    One big sign is Luna has slowly been croaking. Crafters and other people that stock vendors just aren't around any more. Things aren't put up for sale because people don't know when they'll get another one.

    Slownoma is dying of attrition

    RL, Moving to other servers, quitting... we're losing players and don't have an influx

    We need new blood to the server. Not just transfers of people who will get fed up in 6 months and quit/transfer again, but new players to which everything is shiny, new, and fun, who will be excited to "Grow up" in the lands of Britannia.

    How in the world do we attract new players to our shard?

    I'd gladly give newb LRC suits and other things away to new players... but attracting them here in the first place is the hard part.

    Lets ask Thrax how to attract new players...

    But no in all seriousness I have not seen a single person in game in about 2 months. Its kind of depressing. I feel like I am playing a Ghost server or something.

    Granted I always stick to Fel and go hunting where not many people tend to go but I figure I would have atleast seen someone somewhere on my travels.

    News, News, and more News. Honestly we attracted ALLOT of players to Chesapeake and back to Chesapeake because of the news we put out. Who wants to be on a shard that doesn't even show active news?

    If you want to join the team, or know someone that wants to then let me know. That is the reason I am here. Not to invade your shard or take it over but build a team, replace myself, and then retire to Andrasta's private island. Then evict Andrasta and rename the island, Gareth's private island. *Looks around*

    Well I think I'm about to auction off two rares on the rares forum. But I know it doesn't count. There's also no way I'll pay vendor fees for an item I plan to sell for 100mil+

    WHAT IN THE H%^LL IS WORTH 100 MIL. See thats the problem everything is so stupid expensive in pixle gold that new players come and play see that they have to grind for years to get enough gold to buy a p.o.s armor and weapon set that they get frustraited and go to a different game. Another thing that might help the shard would be some role play guilds that aren't just here to kill the same monster over and over or go to a gate or despise and gank people over and over...Just a thought

    Anymore, people can make 100mil rather fast if you know what to look for. Also why not start a rp guild like you mentioned, i'm sure people will join it. Don't be one of those people who complain, but don't want to put in the effort.

    I did start a rp guild its called twilight crimson a rp guild of vamps. I have posted on uo forums several story lines and guild info and some invites for people to creat a guild or come play in mine. I did that almost 2 weeks ago not even a nible but that ok ill still play it and may it will catch on. I just haven't had the time to set up the account here on stratics yet so i can keep in char when posting. but i will get that done too.

    Did someone say my name?


    It is true that once I left, the server withered away and died more so.


    It is the greed and lack of direction from the community that makes it no fun for the common folks.

    All the RP events I have seen in the last 5 years was (QUEEN MUM PRESENTS: HOW TO DECO A HOUSE)....PAlease... Do you really think besides old women and men who watch Glee that the entire population would enjoy this? How do we fix such a problem? Oh well we can't since Queen Mum type people own the forums and it is impossible to hold a REAL pvp or RP event without her seal of approval.

    Let the Doge of Cookies step down so that others can fill the void with REAL events. Remember Oasis Fight Nights? or Horse Races? or Player towns? Build those factors once more and people will have something to fight and play for.. game has become way 2 easy with everyone being friendly...pFFFffFffF


    It seems that greed for new items is the only thing that motivates players now days...and look what I said would happen. *cheers to himself because he is god whom is named Zog*


    Just my little rant if you wanna fix this server, take my advice because it is never wrong.


    As for that new player thing, yes Hunter I would be more than happy to help the younglings again...
