How is the population these days?

Topic pretty much says it all. I'm a long time player returning after a 5 year break, and I'm curious how the game population has held up after all these years. Has it gotten better, worse, or stayed the same. I remember before I left it was pretty common to have around 300+ during peak hours. If the population has gone down, would you say it's taken away some of the community aspect of the game?


  • I've seen it vary from 100-350 throughout the day!

  • Yes to it going down?
  • Achaea is smaller than it was 10 years ago, but the population is fairly steady within a banded range now. We had over 550 people online during the finale of the Worldreaver event in December, which was cool, though everyone being in the same few rooms caused massive lag.

    @Sarapis there was lag? I didn't feel a thing. 
  • I hit DSL once.  I was still doing it fifteen minutes later.  I also didn't end up turning into a demigod until -after- the event (which meant no honors line for me)
  • Very very dramatic pauses.

    I remember trying to autowalk to the Bal'met event. 120 second lag + autowalker counting on two rooms per second = epic fail.

    Perhaps you misinterpreted it as a series of dramatic pauses!
