Came back after a year, not sure where I'm at ....

Postby ksersmustdie » Wed Aug 30, 2017 6:26 am

So bout 2 weeks ago I re-installed Salem and logged into my guy, naked, but still alive in the hovel I built a long time ago (not really sure when, but char was created in 2015)

I picked up where I left off, left the old home behind and started a new one slightly to the north

So then today I go and make an alt finally only to spawn in a very different looking Providence

Made a new char, choosing to connect to Popham instead, and realize that is where my original guy is

So I have some questions...

- What is the difference between connecting to Popham or Providence on the initial log in screen? Different Server?

- I thought Popham was some temporary thing? Or at least until it's "destroyed"?

- Why do I choose Providence or Popham both at the initial log in screen as well as after the tutorial?

- Does nobody play whatever Popham I'm on? I've only seen 1 person in like 3 weeks and there are never any stalls...

Picture reference, this is where I go when I Travel ...To Providence

Popham was a temporary server. John hasn't responded to me as to why it's back up, but I think he did it on accident last time he restarted the Providence server. I wouldn't play a character on there if I were you.

Thanks for wasting our time! Its like these idiots don't know how to run a game. I hope no one purchased stuff from the store on that server.

There are announcements available explaining this in the Announcements section, and in other places on the forums. If someone had purchased something from the store on that server, perhaps it could be transferred, but I don't think anyone else has made the mistake of playing on it.

I forgot, everyone reads the forums. Especially new players. Also according to the server status there were almost 1500 players last month, 800 this week. I sure don't see them on the Providence server.

it is generally expected that players read the forums of a new game in order to get acquainted with it unless they are just dumber than a box of **** that is, additionally if after days of play you encountered nobody else you might ask yourself why.

Thanks for making my point. I have not seen anywhere on the forums not to play on Popham.
