    So I've been gone since sometime after Samurais and Ninjas I think. What's the game like now? What's the shard like now? Is there a decent population? Are there spots to place houses?

    the game has had alot of changes since then i think the game is doing graet right now

    the shards populations is smaller then it was back then but we still have a decent community but please dont judge the size of the community by your responses in general chat because most players dont respond in general chat i know i dont if im actually playing i only respond if im sitting in my house not doing anything.

    and yes houses arent a problem youll find one

    I've tried to come back twice now. The reason I keep leaving is because of the population. There are MAYBE 20-30 people on at peak times. However, they are all, and I mean all in their guild homes, off in some random wood/mine collecting resources.

    Everytime I would ask in chats what's up, I would get two responses... they would be "mining" or "gaining X skill in my house"

    Other than that I saw maybe 3 or 4 people every couple days around luna,fire,abyss..etc.

    Now I only logged on for an hour at a time so my opinion is based on that, but that time was around 7-8pm eastern time.

    So to answer your question. The game I'm sure is fun, looks like lots of changes, but the population on Siege is VERY low.

    I've been playing on an old school free server. When I log on, there's typically 600+ people online, but it's still hard to find people. They are often all at stuff like nightly dueling events. The bad part is that people can have 4 accounts, so there is a ridiculous amount of houses and it's hard to get a decent one. Even with lots of idocs, the scripters make it hard to place anything.

    Anyway, I wouldn't mind giving Siege another shot...especially if I can find a code for a free month or something. I have some really fun builds (nox necro swords comes to mind) that I miss playing. I also have a bunch of characters on Sonoma, so I guess I could give that a shot too. Thanks for the feedback!
