Everyone has left UO for Albion?

Any ideas how many people have left UO for Albion? I guess we won't know how many people have cancelled their subscriptions until their subscriptions run out.

I was enjoying it as a gatherer, but there's not a lot of solo pvp to be had with all the zerg guilds controlling red and black zones. You either join a zerg or get slaughtered, I guess it's not so different from UO after all...

I wouldn't say everyone or even close to it but I'm sure there are a few. And as you say, we won't ever know.

Tried it, was ok , was not the replacement for UO. I suspect it will be a diversion for a couple of months for some but in the end, for all the hype there just ain't a lot of meat on that bone IMO.

No, I am just waiting until UO gets its act together. Then I resubscribe!
My 700+ steam games will keep me busy in the meanime I guess.
Still have hopes for Shards - I love Albions graphic, but the pvp angle is not for me.

Beat that months ago. Then I played the Master Mode DLC and rushed to get the Master Sword and Barbarian Armor/upgrade it to max ASAP. Rest of game was a breeze. Still have to beat Trial of the Sword on both difficulties though.

I've been playing FF14 as well, over on the Malboro server.

I have enjoyed Albion, it has been really fun since the launch and I've seen sooo many people from my uo past. I don't think it really resembles uo tho, I think more uo people are excited about Legends of Aria Online.

I was very interested in Legends of Aria when i checked the website, really does sound like an "updated" version of UO......but.
The whole idea of players being able to make, host and mod their own world sends shivers down my spine.
What will the world look like if everyone and their dog is off making there own world?
Mods......always a gamble and unless you got REALLY secure code can be a nightmare waiting to happen.
Host ???? Sounds like they are gonna use your own computer as a gateway to your world?? Nothing about this one word makes me feel at ease?

Shards will have an oficial server.
As for modding?
The MOBA craze I think started with a mod. If Blizzard had known :p

I think the days of monlithic mmos are over. Nowadays mmos will find their niches and thrive - and what better way when you can mod it?
Neverwiner Night players and some UO players hope for shards as it is the only game at the moment that lets you customize your servers.
UO would probably have a problem allowing mods - First is Electronic Arts and econd is the old code and tools.

Albion sounds like a decent pvp game if they get the territory fighting stuff right.

This thread has been cleaned up a little due to a real world political discussion starting.

A rule prohibiting the discussion of real world politics on Stratics was created during the United States presidential election, and was announced here: Political discussions on Stratics.

Please refrain from any further real world political discussion going forward.

Thank you.

There will be an announcement soon.
Either they are extremely quiet right now about the Anniversary and UO's future because....
a, There is something huge about to happen to UO.
b, They haven't had word on whether they will get their contract renewed in November.
c, They know UO is doomed and just want us to keep paying for as long as possible so they can pump the cash into their "main" game DaoC.

To be clear: I'd love to cheer UO on and pretend the inevitable is not fairly close at this point but I don't feel the staff have earned it. A pet revamp was great, but 10 years too late. Banning a cheating EM is too little too late when you look around and can tell who is cheating on a monumental scale and getting away with it. It was a good run though...

I still own my accounts, hoping for a rabbit out of the staff bag of tricks... but not holding my breath.
FYI I just Download Albion. ill send you a message on what i think about it.

Unfortunately I think @Mesanna is prepared to go down with her ship at this point. She is either blind or a part of the problem.

Hehe, don't kid yourself.
They wont go down with this ship, they will just move over full-time to DaoC. ;)

I thought i had left "rubber banding" behind with UO.....turns out i was wrong. lol.....so annoying to keep porting back and forth while trying to get to the node before somebody else and seeing them porting all over the place too :D
