    I have noticed a bunch of people in Uhall who seem interested in and requested adding a forum for Albion Online to Stratics, and I think that would be a great idea.

    Link to the Albion Online website: Brand New Sandbox MMORPG 2017 | Albion Online

    It is a brand new game that was just released two weeks ago, and already has hundreds of thousands of players in it. Many UO players have said it reminds them of the old days of UO, so it would fit in nicely on Stratics along with the other two UO related games, Shroud of the Avatar and Legends of Aria, which we already have forums for.

    Since all the support for an Albion forum is spread throughout Uhall and could get lost, let's try to keep the discussion about adding that forum in this thread. That way the Stratics board of directors can easily see how many people support this idea just by reading through this thread.

    I'll try to tag as many people as I remember saying they supported the idea or play Albion below so they can comment here as well if they want to:

    I figure even if a few people want to get it started that is fine. Good place to discuss what they are doing and enjoying.

    I'd be all for it. Just one section at the moment to see how it goes. I mean Stratics already has forums for Legends of Aria, Shroud of the Avatar and EVE Online.

    If anything it should have many more game forums! World of Warcraft, Diablo, Star Citizen etc. etc.

    Albion is a released game. Shroud and LOA are still in testing phase!

    I would be very happy if we can add a forum for AO, it would deffo clean up the threads and keep it all in one area.

    I don't have a horse in this race, but I personally find it rather strange how much thought goes into setting up a single forum for this game, while there are 10 Aria forums that haven't seen a single post since their creation like a year ago.

    The Legends of Aria developers use Stratics, and knew about it already due to some of them formerly being well known UO developers. Since they were already here and some had been using Stratics for years as UO developers, it made sense to give them their own section of the website. It is disappointing that the Aria forums haven't really become popular, but to be fair that game has had a rule against players talking about a lot of the content for quite a long time which makes forum posting about it difficult.

    I have been trying to like Albion, but it looks and plays way too much like a generic mobile grind game to me. Clicker Heroes+. The thrill of early UO in terms of danger and PVP I already got from early ArcheAge days, which is really the game that comes closest to to UO in terms of sandbox feel.
