Anarchy Online - Anyone still play?

I played this at release, but gave up because of lag and bugs.  Still, it was pretty innovative at the time.  Is the population still pretty healthy?

    This was the first AAA release that set the stage for bad releases... god I remember the struggles everyone had the first weeks of this game.

    Yeah, I played for a month or so and gave up.  But while I was there, I had fun bashing things with my big, asexual bruiser...guy...with a steel beam or something of the sort.  I remember the lag going into a populated area was a nightmare.  But hey, I'm sure with 17 years of evolution and a small player base now, that's not an issue any more!

    @Scorchien how's the population?  I'd like to try it, but empty MMOs kind of bring me down.  Is there a global chat?

    Thanks man.  @Scorchien if you can't find a group, is it pretty solo friendly?  Also, do ranged classes have to kite?
  • ScorchienScorchien Member LegendaryPosts: 6,000

    I really loved this game would love to go back and play if only there were a few more players it's quite barren.

    You had an Atrox Enforcer. At least you did it right. My first character at launch was an Atrox Enforcer, duel-wielding SMGs. Yikes!

    Launch sucked because most people were stuck in the backyards.

    I've been thinking of playing again lately. I sub maybe once per year. If I jump back on, I'll make a thread and powerlevel anyone that is interested. It won't be this month because I'll be out of town mostly.

    AO is the only game that I enjoy leveling in. I deleted so many toons and started over again just to twink into awesome gear. I spent hours twinking, it's so fun even when I out level all of it in 30 minutes lol.

    Come home, North Man.
