    have not played in over 5 years, and was wandering if it is worth a fresh start, or has it run dead to the ground since then

    We are alive. Certain servers more than others, but even they experience a resurgence from the previous death dirges before.

    I would say start over. You get free AP with the talent system.

    I'd go with yes, but make sure you pick a lively server.

    I just started over myself, going with Alexina this time. So far, it seems like the game is still doing pretty well, and it is much more fun on servers that actually have people. I wouldn't recommend Tarlach :^)

    Rude.
    This is why Tarlach is "dead". People keep saying it's dead so it makes people not want to join it.

    People keep saying its dead because it is. I've played there for years, and in one day, I've seen more people on Alexina than I have in Tarlach in months. I'd rather not mislead people into a server that they'll hate, so that they'd just eventually quit the game entirely.

    Ironically, Tarlach is still a very nice server even with a lower population.
    Although telling people to only join the top population server and to ignore the others really isn't good in the long run.

    Although for the topic itself, the game is still doing good, although a fresh start might be better if you have been gone for a long time.
    Aside from a ton of things changing over 5 years, you get a ton of benefits as a beginner now.

    Game is far from death, if anything.

    I know the vote is biased( This being a mabinogi forum...), but you either rejoin for: Nostaliga, or you're willing to put in the time to bear with the game, in order to get to the good parts of the game.

    Alexina has the biggest market, for sure.
    > so in terms of market / population size it'll be like Alexina -> Mari -> Ruairi -> Tarlach

    But honestly, as long as you can find a friend to play with, you can have fun in any server.
    Even Alexina can be boring if you have nobody to mess around with.

    No this is why other servers are dying. People keep recommending Alexina. :|

    Lets just do a massive server merge and be done with this crap.

    i think other servers like Ruairi are doing just fine ppl keep using words like dead server, its only as dead as you make it to be. if the people you usually play with not as active find new ppl problem solved

    Don't listen to them... Become Ruarian. Join Rua server!
    But seriously if..
    You want toxic community = join Ruairi.
    You love drama = join Mari.
    You don't really care about server population and you just want a calm server to play in = join Tarlach.
    You hate all above things i mentioned there = join Alexina.

    That's my opinion anyway. Please don't get triggered anyone.

    I agree
    People should use words like "less alive server" instead of "dead server".

    Just to be fair, when you recommend servers, make sure it is for the benefit of the person ASKING, not the people left. The person asking deserves the truth, and the ability to make their own decision.

    I don't think this game would physically survive an attempted merge

    This game has been so much easier than 5 years ago, which help a lot of players since then. Furthermore, a few weeks ago they have balanced out each race with new skills.
    I came back after I quit playing for half year ror those new skills for each race.

    I'm not even going to lie, I'm not a drama person and in Mari somehow I got dragged into it years ago. Then it died down. Then again, I was more childish than how I am now, so the only drama I get now is my frustration at RNG. <u< ;
