    Server Population

    Hello All,
    I have been away from Firefoot forever. I do however have an old Rank 10 Kinship with a kinhouse and was wondering what the server Population was like.

    There are some server stats published somewhere, http://lotroaltfinder.net/statistics.html and perhaps also http://middleearthinitiative.wordpre...sing-a-server/ a bit.

    I have never been anywhere else. Don't know how it is. I find Firefoot to be more or less as I expected a MMO server to be; more people in town, less out of it. I have been told that Firefoot is a low population server, well, I admit that sometimes you would expect to see more players online, but I do not mind. It is easy to find a calm spot in town (Bree mostly) and Rivendel is never crowded. Hardly ever more than perhaps one other player queuing up to get a Quest.

    Brandywine may be the opposite, since most stuff I come across indicates that it is the most crowded server, with up to perhaps the double of Firefoot.

    Firefoot died a little since I have been away. It looks as though Brandywine is still trucking along.

    Not seen these before the first is a eye opener...I suppose historical data not available?

    No clue, it would be interesting though.

    Greetings Firefoot! I am joining this thread because I too am returning after being gone for over a year. I want to reimurse myself into the game, so I plan on starting over from scratch. Since I don't know anyone in game now, I'm free to join any server available. I know a lot of people say Brandywine has the largest population for the US, but that seems like a double edge sword. More people around to do stuff with, but a lot of competition when questing.

    I have two questions:

    1) If I come back to Firefoot, can anyone recommend a good kinship with a large enough population (I'm usually online in the evenings on the west coast) that I can quest with?
    2) Secondly, can anyone tell me a good reason to come back to Firefoot over Brandywine?

    Thank you all for your input! Looking forward to coming back.

    This whole server population question is actually interesting. I personally enjoy the heck out of Firefoot, I just wish there was more items going up on the AH. Making it so everyone will have multiple alts that can make whatever you want puts a huge hit on it.

    Too many people on a server creates lag and long questing when you can't find what you're supposed to kill.

    Sorry for not seeing this earlier, i have not been around the forums a lot lately.

    #1 I am a member of Fist of Fate. All my four characters are. However, having said that, even if it is an elder Kinship (not making any comparisons here) I must say I lack activity and sometimes we may only be 2-3 online at once (European Players). A friend, Ederon, left this Kinship to make his own, Company of Rohan, and has more activity. I can not advice you towards one of the other, there are a few available.
    #2 I really do not know what I could write to recommend one server over the other. I have no experience from other servers, but as DirkBadgewick writes, maybe that could be a reason as good as any. If you are a bit of a LoneWolf, maybe Firefoot will fit well, but I guess that even players that are more social do find spots and environments on Firefoot that suits them.

    Having been here since '07, I can assure you it is a shadow of its former glory. Doubtful you will recognize anyone and more than likely all the people you knew have moved on or quit. Game is still fun, a lot less skills now with the revamp; much needed, in my opinion.

    Also, I'm not sure if you are aware of this, but they did a housing foreclosure some time back and you might want to log in just to see if you still have a guild hall; I know a lot of people personally who lost out on this.

    Regardless, the game still has a decent amount of offer; could be better but it is what it is, come back and try it out.

    Just might like it, again.

    I am doing my best to chase the shadows away...
