    Hi guys,

    Is Oceania still active? How many people play roughly?

    Is it possible they will merge Oceania with another shard?

    Which is the next best shard for ping? Pacific would be around 250ms right, is that playable?

    Cheers,
    J

    there are still a few diehards playing oceania. i would consider it one of the least populated shards. it's hard for me to say how many people play there because i log in during offpeak times.

    the good news is there are spots where you can place castles.

    i tool around there from time to time but my ping to oceania is around 220 and it makes it almost unplayable. of all the USA west shards, pacific is probably the most populated. i'd suggest making a character on Pacific and give it a try. good luck!

    I guess there are about 20-40 regular players on Oceania, we use 'help' chat not general chat so generally log in , go to help chat and ask who is on, you will normally get at least half a dozen answer you. This forum is more dead than the shard now. Most just post in Uhall.
