    Hey guys,

    I'm coming back to this fantastic game after not playing for probably 5 years. I quit shortly after AoS was released on OSI and picked up UO again on UOG:Hybrid which was pretty cool.

    Seeing how that server is now pretty bad, I made up my mind to pick this one over UOF to start playing again.

    Questions:

    1) I've been told factions are dead here. Why is that?
    2) How's the pvp population? are their fights at moongates/towns or mostly dungeons?
    3) If I was to make my own O/C guild and hunt for solo/small fights, how successful would I be?
    4) I understand there's no bolas but wands are in. Are fights a lightning-wand spam fest?
    5) Do players still run exp pots here even though the bonus damage isn't installed?
    6) Compared to UOF forums, this pvp forum is pretty empty. Is that indicative of the pvp climate here?

    Thanks! Looking forward to start playing tonight.

    Questions:

    1) I've been told factions are dead here. Why is that?
    I ain't touching that one. That question alone makes this thread potentially toxic.

    2) How's the pvp population? are their fights at moongates/towns or mostly dungeons?
    Everywhere

    3) If I was to make my own O/C guild and hunt for solo/small fights, how successful would I be?
    Potentially. Off on a tangent here but on any MMO, things change. YOU yourself could spark some activity and have a good time by making aforementioned guild whereas before there was an absence of activity.

    4) I understand there's no bolas but wands are in. Are fights a lightning-wand spam fest?
    No. Get reflect down and dump.

    5) Do players still run exp pots here even though the bonus damage isn't installed?
    Yes. Logic says, "Why wouldn't you?"

    6) Compared to UOF forums, this pvp forum is pretty empty. Is that indicative of the pvp climate here?
    Uhm...

    willywonka, thanks for your replies.

    1) Wasn't trying to stir anything! Genuinely curious as I have fond memories of Factions.

    3) Sure. I will certainly do that and find out.

    5) True.

    6) Honestly don't know how to take that.

    Thanks!

    1) I've been told factions are dead here. Why is that? - Was active for abit but has declined recently may come back who knows

    2) How's the pvp population? are their fights at moongates/towns or mostly dungeons? Everywhere

    3) If I was to make my own O/C guild and hunt for solo/small fights, how successful would I be? Most people run in groups and if you find a solo player be prepared for a call in. It happens anyone who can do it will.

    4) I understand there's no bolas but wands are in. Are fights a lightning-wand spam fest? Wands are a must for this server take save mana while you take down there reflect

    5) Do players still run exp pots here even though the bonus damage isn't installed? Yes

    6) Compared to UOF forums, this pvp forum is pretty empty. Is that indicative of the pvp climate here? I think most people are just tired of the crying from all sides. Why talk pvp in the forums when you can go in game and get ganked!

    Go red and announce your location in IRC. Shouldn't take long before the PVP guys show up.

    Ice has been a PVP hot bed the last few weeks for some reason.

    Go red and head to the nearest town. You'll find action instantly.
