I tried UO for about a day last year and didn't stick with it. I ran into some jerks in the general chat and it turned me off. Anyway, I posted about if before and was told that I should have tried help chat.
To my point now: Is UO worth playing at this time for a new player? Are there enough players on a given server to make it feel populated and not lonely?
Is there anything I should know going in, about gameplay or game download or setup or anything?
Thanks for any help!
