Throughout my life I've played this game since it came out in some capacity or another, from the launch of the Dreamcast version being overloaded with crappy Varistas, to the Gamecube version and then Blue Burst. I played on the Schthack server for years, making friends and farming. Most games don't travel with me in the same way PSO does. Many years after I stopped playing on Schthack and the subsequent loss of all my characters that followed a few years after, I wasn't sure anyone played PSO anymore. The world changed, I changed. I have less time then I once did. More obligations, responsibilities. Anytime I considered trying a new server, the loss of my high level RAmarl almost felt like an end to my time with the game. This old gem was able to draw me back in.
Even with all the new games that have come out from the time I last set foot on Pioneer 2 until now, PSO is still a game I really enjoy spending my free time on. With that being said, I want to thank the people who made this server possible, and kept it going. I wouldn't be able to play otherwise. Yes, there are other servers but like I said, everything's different in my life now and I absolutely don't have the time to invest in the game to get back to where I once was, not on a vanilla or heavily modded experience. Ultima is somewhere in the middle, and I'm very thankful for that.
