    UO....I only see the free shards getting a big boost once UO closes the doors :)

    Wonders then if Stratics will become the sponsor for free shards or if they will try to focus on another game :)

    Actually its when theres no advertising, can't buy it off store shelves, no real ingame support, 90% of the UO gamer population has just given up, when a forum page offers more advertising for different games VS the one people are going there to read about and reminise... (Thinks)... OH CRAP.

    That's not a game. Central will always be around, no matter which titles are available. :p

    Don't you use your fancy mathematics to muddy the issue!

    You can all have your thread back, now :D
     
  13. Wow. Stratics is in worse shape than I thought. My money is now on UO.

    *shrug* Think what you want.

    Stratics sites received 40,458 page views yesterday (20 July). The subdomain uo.stratics.com account for 3,235 page views (about 8% of our traffic).

    Syrus would know. Just saying. Eight percent is pretty good... But it is not all Stratics is. *smiles*
     
  17. In contrast, My Space has 1.5 billion page views per day and I don't know anyone who uses My Space.

    Just checked and found that UHall has 438,935 posts. That isn't counting any of the other UO forums.

    All other Stratics forums combined have a TOTAL OF ABOUT 20,000 POSTS.

    I'm no math genius but I'd say Stratics is in a whole lot of trouble without UO.

    I've gotta admit, that does not break my heart. Being EA's %$#@% for so long is going to *&^* some people off. You know?

    Edit: At least you can joke about it though!

    Stratics will last, even the uo section. Look at the EAL section. People were still posting there fairly regularly 6 months after the game closed and there's still an occasional post now.

    I wish the activity on the WoW based forums here had caught on more. Posting on the official Blizzard forums is about as meaningful as throwing a feather into a tornado. :(

    After UO, WoW is the portal that draws the most views. Sadly, the content on the portal is outdated by about a year. I've set up a shiny, new portal here: WoW Stratics! «. We're just waiting for some active staff to build it back up. *wink, hint*

    Don't need no stinkin' forums for WoW! I guess I'd post on MMO-Champion if I wanted to interract with the millions of idiots that play the game but I tend to keep my conversations within our guild chat/ventrillo and my observation confined to trade chat.

    to prove this point, a no longer playing addict is quoting a no longer playing addict. I think the good money is on the forums :p
