I noticed a thread started concerning the population of Firefoot and I wanted to chime in.
I am quoting myself. So is Firefoot active? I have some good memories on this server. I always felt that it was like the wild frontier, where people were not so concerned with formalities and the drama was actually entertaining (most peopel did not take themselves seriously).I have 2 characters on Firefoot. One is at end level and the other somewhere around 50. It was, as the OP said, always a smaller server but it basically became a ghost server. I remember from times past that it had a feisty PvMP population (despite the rank farming going on, which no one really minded at the time). But now even that is a wasteland. I was extremely shocked when the hobbits run was held that there was enough people to escort the hobbit to Isengard! Being a small server I was acquainted with most of the notable players (those who /glff and the many many PUGs) but the last time I was on (before u13) I did not recognize anyone. This is all anecdotal and not the best method to determine if Firefoot is in a lull but that is my experience. I actually thought about transferring my level 95 to my main server but I keep him there just in case (in case of what I do not know).
