    I went to WoW. I still have two active Napa accounts etc but I haven't played them in months.
    It's likely I'll be leaving UO permanently sometime in the future because frankly, WoW is more fun.

    Kinda remember a quote some time ago you said, never figured you go to that game after how you worded it... kids played it prob 3 yrs now off & on, more off once he hit 80 on a couple of characters, in his words once you top out there is nothing to do, he has made & deleted I think 7 or 8 characters, just to keep it interesting. It's grind grind grind then nothing. Once upper leveled, it's group fighting only mostly :thumbdown:. Least in UO you can do your own thing :thumbsup:

    Wrath of the Lich King changed a lot and I was introduced to WoW by a friend and he gave me pointers etc. brought me on some dungeon runs and generally made me go "hmmm, this isn't as bad as I thought".
    I did try WoW once before and uninstalled the trial after 3 hours, that's true :lol:
    I guess this time there was someone there to hang out with and learn from and that made a difference. I'm now in a guild there and stuff and enjoying my time.

    As for UO it's simple economics really, why pay for two accounts you're not going to be using.

    This thread is still on topic (I think) the question was Where did everybody go?!?!?! and that is my answer :)

    Ya, kid has the Lich King, he camped the EB Store @ midnight to get it lol. But ya, why pay if yer not gonna play... makes no sense at all. I will say though, there are a lot of new faces & lots of Old names popping back into Napa that I have not seen in ages. Is nice to see them, even if many had smoked my back side in Fel yrs ago. :thumbup:

  9. I'm fairly certain the minax people are stealing all the sigils still. You could join them and camp the other bases on the off chance that someone tries to steal one of them.
     
  10. I played WoW off an on for about 3 years, quit playing UO for about 2 1/2 years during this time. WoW is a blast for your very first character. Every time you level up high enough to go to a new area its cool as hell. Then you max out the character and you have fun doin raids and BGs and Arenas till you find out that youll never stay on top unless you play 24/7. After awhile it gets boring raidng and doing BGs. Then you start a new character and realize that your gonna do the same damn thing all over again. Same quests, same zones, same instances, same BGs and Raids when you level up. And then your gonna have to wait for 2 years for a new expansion to come out. They put out just enough new content to string you along. Grind, Grind, Grind for gear till new raid comes out and you gotta do it over again.

    Im not saying dont play it, because its entertainment value is good for about 10 to 12 months. But you will be back to UO so make sure you dont sell your account.
