So I been away but following the game for past two years. I kinda have the itch to gather the newer blue spells and do cp burns on sch to unlock new spells and enjoy content. Is our server dead though? I really can't say I want to play solo. I did log back in for a month on scholar last April. Shouted and walked around for two weeks didnt see or hear back from a soul, nor were there any guild invites.

Yeah it has its good or bad now a days as far as population goes. Like here on Asura its full of idiots and try hards. EXP camps can be crowded and a lot of people are transferring who are so behind, but think they're Gods gift its funny. Long story short sometimes the grass isn't always greener on the other side. But of course to each his own.

Server isn't completely dead although it has pretty low pop. I still experience ambu congestion, heavy Zitah cleaving competition and reisenjima warp 2 pop spot competition a lot.


It's just that the way smaller server works differently from bigger server. When people do stuff they don't shout, instead they just send tell to lsmate and friends and make pt. Thus you get the impression that server is dead.

If you're going to transfer, go to a mid-rage population server. One that has some shouts and active linkshells, but not so overcrowded that you're always competing for everything.
I'm on Bismarck, and I'm quite enjoying it lately. Sometimes you need to shout for a while to do stuff, but there are a few active linkshells, and you usually end up getting what you wanted done. Also, people all know each other, whenever you zone into a town 10 people will /wave at you. If you're not a jerk, people are helpful and pretty decent. There's not so many /yell arguments link in the past (those players all quit or jumped server). Yet, there will still be times you go to dragon camp during gain xp RoE and no one else shows up for the whole 4 hours (it's uncommon, but it has happened to me twice).
I /sea all about 700 people around jp midnight during the week, 320 NA weeknights, 500 NA weekend evenings.

I agree with this 100%. Its annoying when apex is full 24/7
