How did you decide to choose to play on UOSA?

I started in the last 2 months. I started on this shard in particular for 2 reasons.

1) I played UO on great lakes from 1999 - 2002. I always thought Ren killed the game when Trammel was added and everyone could Farm with no fear of attack from PKs. I don't PK but they add a sense of danger and risk to the game that is healthy. This server reminds me of an era when I had the most fun on UO.

2) housing. I always had a small house near the swamp by Trinsic. I always wanted a large brick house. I saw the population was low on this server so I figured I might have a chance at getting a house better than a small. Just yesterday I placed a large brick house. In fact, there is enough additional room that I might collapse the large brick when I have enough money and upgrade to a tower.


I don't think players having 15 houses is healthy for the game. It discourages other new players from joining. Maybe a limit of 3 houses per player would free up a ton of room and encourage other players to start here. It would have to be advertised on reddit or something but maybe on a certain day if half the houses collapsed you could have a massive surge in players?

Gemini: My loot barely fits into 15 houses, all 125 item pouches. This shard is from 2008, so there's a lot of pixels to be had.

I have played here before, a long time ago, and remembered it fondly for keeping it old school.

Edit:
I think I joined back then on a whim, with a friend. There was some ultima like game we played around that time as well.
Dransik? I think that was the name.
Anyway, fun times, despite neither of us having been really ambitious, or anything. Aka, casual scrubbery galore.

I've been here a long time but took a two-year break and came back after seeing more events. Plus you can only stay away from UO for so long before it inevitably sucks you back in.

I joined UOSA less than two months ago.

Reason: Anarcho unbanned me.

I joined 38 days ago. I previously played on IPY 1 ,2 3, and never could find a similar ruleset server for 2ta UO. Been outta UO for a few years. Always looking to come back but never found a stable 2ta server after IPY died again.

Did some googling to see if there was a classic 2ta shard and stumbled upon this one.
I actually think I read some facebook post or yourtube comment that mentioned uo forever (which i didnt want to play at all) and someone responded with secondage for t2a classic.
Watching old school UO videos and remembering all the fun in 97-99.


So far I am loving every minute of it.

I played UO 1996-2000 and it was one of the greatest video game experiences of my life. I never officially finished any of the characters I was working on, so I felt I had a lot of unfinished business. It's 2018 and I'm playing a game from 1999, and honestly I couldn't be happier. I googled "free T2A shard" and here I am.

It's actually a lot more fun for me to play with less people online. I can dungeon crawl without being repeat ganked, I can bank without being robbed, I can explore and enjoy the beauty of this world without much grief at all.

FWIW, I liked this "high hopes" post.

Past two weeks, or so, it seems like you have been struggling, at least a little: will you adapt to adversity, and ultimately overcome it; or will you give-up and walk away?

All of us players (this game, or any other) are real-life people with real-life capabilities, wants and obligations.

UOSA is a great place for you to visit and, perhaps, make a home: be sure of your investment, here (or anywhere, for that matter).
