Just a heads up the New Worlds has big queues on day 1, according to PC gamer. I am wondering if that is attributable to the twitch streaming crowd. I also wonder how they are getting the numbers.

So how are you guys getting the numbers on the queues may i ask? Its more out of curiosity than anything else.

Oh, it’s easy, when you go to the character select screen, click “view worlds” instead of a character, then you can flip around to all the regions and servers to see what the queue is like. Here’s east right now:

I’m waiting for UO Legacy, i may play UO again before that, the old player base should understand that the game need updating to bring in new players, without that the old base will fade slowly and the game will die.

I have come to terms with the fact that I am just not a representative UO player… some of those folks dug in back in 1997 and never left or tried much of anything else, or at least not in the last 10 or 15 years. They are UO players, not MMO players, I guess. It’s impossible to reason with them about the future of the game. They see six devs and don’t understand that the game’s position is perilous enough without catering only to the 24-year vets.

Asmongold is ringing a bell and I can’t figure out why. So I’m not quite grokking the “Asmongold Syndrome”?

The silly thing is by behaving that why they hurt the viability and ongoing survival of the game they love. Getting new victims err players is a must if they the grognards want to continue to have their favorite mmorpg around to play in. (sigh) How often to we see people behave against their own best interests.
