I can wholly agree with this, advertisement fixing things that are less than player friendly, causing more positive remarks on the boards. All these would help with UO's population. Also I find more people who are trying to make it/keep it a single player version of a multiplayer game than I do find people who "have" to play that way. It has gone on for years now, and even on the lowest of populated shards people should have been able to find someone to play with, if you can't then it is because of people who want to play alone. (Well I would amend this statement to be more of if you "couldn't" rather than if you can't since population on some shards does seem to be reaching the end of the line where everyone you see is afk.)Then with the petals, apples and lightning strike nerf, it's like they said "hey, what else can we do to make sure nothing stronger than an ogre lord can be soloed." Yet very little has been done to advertise UO and try to bring in more players. Players are soloing stuff sometimes because they want to, but for some, it's because it's hard to find other players to group with.
