The MUD is in a really good place these days with regular events and weekly quests, open communication between staff and players, the veil lifted on how the game works, areas upgraded and new ones put in, endgame expanded through soul gems, etc. etc. I applaud the current management. The heartbreaking problem is the pbase, which for me is practically non-existent. I am not based in the US and play when most are asleep. Some years ago, there used to be 5-6 people on around at this time to interact with. Now there are none. At most there are 6-8 on at peak US times (and tbh even then the feel is strangely clique-y).
A lot of the guilds are gone due to inevitable inactivity. I find myself wondering if I'm playing for sheer nostalgia or enjoyment. Playing alone is kind of miserable.
Basically, the game needs a massive investment in expanding the pbase. Whether that's trying to bring old players back or finding new ones. It does deserve more players.
