Deafening Silence

I installed Black Prophecy last night.  This is the first time I'm using a flight stick for an mmorpg so I'm a little excited about it.

I didn't get to play very long yet, I spent most of the time downloading, installing and patching so I haven't formed any opinions on the game yet.

The one thing I did notice which was a little disturbing was that I was alone.  There was (literally) no conversations in the chat box.  I didn't see any other people.  I felt like Burgess Meredith in the Twilight Zone episode "Time Enough At Last".

Where is everyone?

    i think the company either has or is on the verge of going bust, i seem to remember the game itself had a lot of issues, so finding nobody on isnt really all that surprising.. about the only really surprising thing is that the game is actually running still, kind of expected it to have shut down by now.image

    Damn.  It's only a year old and there's already talk of closing the doors?

    In the short time I played I didn't experience any problems.  The game ran fine but I do have a high end machine so maybe I"m not the best benchmark.

    I guess I'll just make the best of it while it lasts.
