    Playing UO again. I went to my old shard GL and it seems dead. Is this the busy shard or is there one. Is there no hope in my quest for the old days of playing. I did the 3d's , wow, lotr, stg, etc. They missed something that UO had, maybe it was the housing (lotr housing sucks bad as well as no pvp).
    It's strange but why is it that a game had such an impact on my memory. I can remember mining at minoc, frog hopping the ore. Hanging around the Brit bank (even the East one was busy), running into so many people while out shopping, as well as people inside crafting, those were the days (I think I'm getting teary eyed). I remember one of the first times I got ganked at minoc by a Pk using a moongate, he popped out and whammo, then he sat on a log and tried on my favorite straw hat, leaving me my runes and enough regs to recall. The there was when Mr T came to my house, that was cool, a celebrity and all. The evenings of summoning Els to fight for gains. Ok, enough.
    It will never be the same, I guess I'll get on a few times and then throw away all my passwords and usernames. I've had it.
    Nope cant do that:sad2:
  2. Not sure where this shard ranks on Population but the most populated shard on the east coast would be Atlantic..

    I know EXACTLY what you mean! I too miss the old days. I started playing again about a month ago and spent almost a full week in game walking around by myself... gathering my BOD's 3 times a day and reminiscing about the "good old days" And then I met a really sweet girl who took me under her wing and introduced me to one of the most active guilds on the shard; PGoH. We are currently in the middle of Honordayz and having a blast! You should check it out. There is a post just a few down from this one about it.

    Katherine is insane and you should know that!

    But yeah I'm originally from Baja, My circumstances for starting back up are different but I remember the past also and while getting pk'ed is optional now and running into people while shopping only happens in luna. You don't have to run around alone. This shard is active but if you want britain bank active I'd suggest Lake Superior or Atlantic.

    But if you do decide to come and stay at catskills just put up a post about looking to join a guild and you will be assailed by recruiters.

    Atlantic for Population, Europa for RP.(though they are rather strict)
    Though I will always prefer Catskills. I suppose just because I began here.
