im going to take a stab and say 90ish.. thats going by the individual forum accounts. 1 person has an average of around 3 characters but yeah around 90 individual players. Its a massive game though and is fun with more people.

Awesome game.. really reccomend giving this round a shot.. good admins regular stuff happening, pretty interactive.

NERD/GAMER/GEEK ALERT - MMORPG WARNING

I know this may not apply to many people here but someone may wana take part in this.. So if I score one person this topic isnt wasted.

Hey Guys

I would like to take the time to tell you about a MMORPG that has taken alot of hours away from me every one of them awesome.

Ultima Online is one of the original MMORPG's to hit the scene back in the early 90's. Originally a Pay to Play service the game has been adapted over the years and now runs on privatley hosted shards around the world.

Perth has had Zulu Hotel Australia for many years and has had its ups and downs.
Recently after a couple of years silence the shard was reborn and is now availble to play for free.

Hosted locally with minimal latency issues (runs on "capped" internet fine) Zulu Hotel Australia V boasts a strong playerbase and a fully spawned universe full of adventure.

Choose from one of 6 Classes (Warrior,Mage,Ranger,Theif,Bard or Crafter) or if you cant, roll them all into one and be a Power Player. All with there own stats,bonuses and items. PVP is always on and the chance to loose everything is always on the line as your inventory is always at risk of being stolen if you were to die! This may sound horrible but the added risk element of this game makes for some of the most exciting moments! No more stopping with the epics (al-la WoW)

Own your own house,Run your own guild and complete quests in order to reach the top of a constantly changing fantasy universe.Visit the major cities of the world,visit mystical shrines,horrific dungeons or just spend your days providing armor and weapons for the masses and turn over a high profit, there really isnt much you cant do.

The reason I mention this now is that a new round is beginning in mid July, this means all items that have been collected (including houses!) will be deleted and the hunt begins once more.

So Im encouraging anyone who is interested to get into it today! Get a feel for the game and learn its ins and out so when the entire playerbase is back on even terms come out firing and get into it.

Touring Company site. Doesnt have any information about the tour but a playlist packed full of Testament..
Maybe the tickets had to go on sale before an offical announcement because of the Time Frame?

*Fingers Crossed*

Edit: Found a few more bits of info for speculation:
http://www.testamentlegions.com/tour-v5.htm - Testament current tour lisitng (dates are open but  :hmm:)
http://www.metalunderground.com/news/details.cfm?newsid=36815 - "Tour annoucement"  -metal underground
http://www.amplifiercapitol.com.au/upcoming - Amplifier gig calendar - No Testament but the proposed date is free.

Nothing solid.. may hold back on purchasing until its set in stone.

Quote from: Lars Ulrich
?We?re staying out and doing dates up till November, in Australia and New Zealand is where we?re heading in November and then after that we?re gonna take a little bit of chill time, ?cause it?s been a couple of years on the road, and then after that I think we?re just gonna go back and continue with another record. There?s no particular plans to do anything else.?

Also, regarding soundworks booking those venues you mentioned. Yes, they do make good venues but its not like other bands arent ringing the very same venues making similar proposals.

The soundworks guys worked damn hard to build a reputation for their business, and that business now has currency when it comes time to booking shows. Booking agents know that well-organised shows put on by people who have had produced the goods in the past is likely to be a sure thing.

Newer/disorganised bands do not have this currency to barter with, and initially many of them would be turned away from better venues like these or left to wait months before getting their shot.

Doesnt this just encourage bands to work that much harder to become the attention of leading booking agents ? If you cant break in on whats allready established make best effort to get in on whats allready happening.
If you have a band that puts on blow away shows and packs out smaller venues wouldnt a business extend there resources to you so that they can make some money off your ass ?

Newer bands unless well connected wont be able to jump to the top of the food chain and thats understandable but if your bringing something to the table that people like and will change there normal schedule to come and see then things can only go better from there right? Or am I thinking too simply ?

I am not familiar with the inner workings of booking agents and what or what isnt in there best intrerest and this is creeping off the topic of crowd numbers but to me not getting behind something that has potential to expand your portfolio doesnt make sense to me...

i like bands pulling their weight to get people there instead of just restricting themselves to popular venues so they look good, i like the castle. :P

Dont bands want to pull less weight ? Arnt they there to show the crowd what they have spent time and effort developing ? To see a band "pull weight" and put on a killer set is great but wouldnt you rather as a band avoid the need to motivate your audience to come and see you when the pulling power of a well organized gig and a prominent venue can do that for you?

What were reading here:

Dude A: Drinks are too expensive man.. Its about the Drinks..
Dude B: Pre-sell tickets/Bring one get one free/Tix Tix Tix
Dude C: Names of gigs are gay/No Women/Kthnx

Bottom Line:

Good bands attract good crowds..

Prime example? UTI album launch Friday night. The the crowd in that room rose and fell like the tides.One set you'd see 20-30 people rocking out the next wall to wall punters.

Drinks were 12 bucks each shit was still expensive it was still a sausage fest but the good band pulled the punters and all bands were heard.If not front and centre out in the yard.Good times were had music was heard and money was made.

Yes the local scene needs support and this could come in alot of forms which have been outlined here.

To the bands that would like to see a change in there crowd numbers.. bribe, cheat, steal, suck dick, call favours do whatever it takes to get your band heard.. Get busy, get exposure.. listen to feedback and act on it. if your shit sucks find out why and change it.Basically if you want to make money. Sell out. want to be an individual and write what you like? Respect.But you cant take that stance and then question the community when people dont show.

Caps.
Amps.
Rocket Room.

This will be your domain. It is in places like this people will hear you because:

A)      There moden
B)      Secure
C)      Centralized
D)      Exposed/Advertised

Soundworks obviously know this and hold a vast majority of there shows at these venues. They dont throw around "limited time offers" or cheap gimmicks in order to get people in they just line up good bands and people walk in.

Gone are the days were people pony up for a cause. Everything is give and take and music is no different.
