Anyone else planning on coming back?

I'm predicting OSI will go back to the most populated when it becomes F2P.

For a little while maybe, then go back to roughly the same size it is before going FTP.
People that play on free servers will not like having restricted play and go back to w/e server they came from.
Most other players that only played on OSI/EA but from older game eras might not care for what UO has changed into, then stop playing.
I'm sure there might be some players whom return to the game and re-up their subscription for 1-3 months, then.....remember why they got bored and left before and probably do it again.
That is assuming that the people whom allready stopped playing even get the news about it at all.
I can't say that i know what EA is doing to spread the news about this or how effective it will be.
But i guess now there will never be a lack of bluebies standing inside GZ right next to Yew gate.

Everything you just said was true more or less, but let's be honest. There's one major reason it's going to fail...

I don't know enough about Broadsword as a company to form a reply to that.
Are they the people responsible for "Messana"???????
Do they as a company have a history of driving games into the dirt?
Will our heros find a way to not fall off a cliff?
Will they escape Snidley Whiplash?
Find out next time..........

I thought about trying it (again)

but the free account restrictions are more locked down than a lot of games that offer a F2P option. Would need a paid account just to support the F2P account.

How is it more locked down? You can do everything except use a house. If you have a friend online, they can handle your storage needs.
