I've been thinking about getting back on UO but I'm afraid it is a died or dieing game... How many people are on now days? What are your thoughts on this?
Look at it this way EA put a clause in the EULA back in 2003 that states service can be terminated with 3 months notice. Thats the bottom line regarding is it dieing, you will get at least 3 months out of it and to be honest i cant see them pulling the plug just yet. (Most mmos have a kill clause in there EULA)
EDIT: Can't remember if UO ever listed server pops at log in but it doesn't now so no way of giving a concrete figure.
I've reactivated an account closed in 1999 with no hassle, the Europa server seems to be busy enough for an economy and Brit bank still has a fair crowd at most times of day.
That said i placed a house in Trammel with no issue other gripe is the sub fee is stupidly high for such an old game i'm paying £9.99 thats more than EVE.
How long's a piece of string? is the glass half full or half empty? Every mmo i've played has had someone claiming it's dieing and none of them have been closed down yet.
