On Lake Superior, we are not the most active shard and far from dead. We have the regulars who play alll the time, but as I am running around luna checking out my house and other vendors I noticed we have (11 to 12 ) eleven to twelve houses that are dormant!!!!!! . No vendors set to privet, have not changed in months or years!!!. Just empty dirt plots. A good chunk of them are owned by the same name, i take it the same person as well. We could have a more people on here, but these people just pay to have a blank account that holds a house, where someone new to the game 1 will never get a plot here, or have to pay a large amount of money. I was very luck. I bought my small house in luna, ( I probably have the smallest on the shard from a long time friend. ) new players will not get that kind of chance most likely. Wondering what other peoples thoughts are about it.
