    Hey everyone,
    I have a suspended account and have not played in going on a year now...i played for like a month around november of 2009 but thats it, and was wondering if the population of Ultima Online was still dwindling or if it's stable now, and also which shards have the most people on them for pvp purposes?

    I personally can't answer the PvP question, but the new content from SA has led to an increase in population from older players coming back in the last 4 months. I've had to help out more returning players in that period, than in the 12 months prior to SA combined.

    PvP is hopping over on Pac. Baja is also a little happening. Euro is very popular for the RP crowd, and Chessy still has a good community. Oh, and ATL still has the highest population.

    Ah alright, well the increase in overall population is good from SA...when i left it had just come out, I actually purchased it and not long after went over to WoW because of the g/f playing that... that sucks that the pvp is all on those servers, wonder how GL is doing, thats my home shard with most of my toons, but thanks for the info guys!

    I think GL is still the 2nd largest shard.

    Yeah, come back. The only change in population I have noticed is an increase since the Stygian Abyss launch. Surely it wouldn't have only happened for Lake Superior.

    The overall population is increasing. Many older players are returning because of the new skills and the possibility of making UBBER UBBER gear with mods that YOU want in stead of just making random gear with stuff you may or may not want. Spend a little time gathering resourses or some gold buying them and you can make a piece that completes your template.

    In recent weeks I've seen many older players back in the game for the first time in a while. I would definatly come on in and take a look around.
