Last week or so, I put my second character through a true reincarnation, Hamllin. As a result, I ran through the regular tutorial stuff and made my way to Korthos and joined up with some of my guildmates who had also created some lower level characters. As we were chatting, I noticed how empty Korthos Island was. I play on the Thelanis server, which I typically find to have a pretty healthy playerbase, at least in my mind, but I noticed that when I was logged on and walking through Korthos with my guildmates, that we were the only ones in the instance . I had never seen Korthos Island so empty before. I noticed this on Wednesday at around 6:00 pm EST, so it wasn’t the ideal play time but also not the least played time either. My guildies also commented on the lack of players in Korthos.
Later during the weekend, we played this set of characters again. This time it was Sunday (yesterday actually) at around 9:45 pm EST. The screenshot above shows the activity in Korthos Village at the time and we only saw three other folks running around. However, as we started questing, we did see much more chatter in the General Chat on Sunday, which was good because we didn’t come across any chatter at all on Wednesday.
I’m hoping this was just a unique case and a slow time but it did make me a little discouraged. Hopefully we will be getting more recruits into the game because it is a great game and a great way to enjoy your free time.
