    I'm only posting here because I cant anywhere else without paying, saying this I do still consider myself to be a new player. I never completed the main quest due to an abundance of bugs and other problems with the game.
    My question is has the game improved? have the quest bugs been resolved? Are players active? Basically is the game worth getting into?

    Yes, yes but you never know you might find one or more, yes but the place isn't crawling with people you'll need to take the time to find them in events or populated towns, that's totally subjective.

    I am in a similar position. I am a long time UO player, I've played this game on and off for years. I make friends from time to time but then they leave the game. Same issues, quest progression broken or very cryptic etc. I have noticed improvments over the years but not enough (in the past) to keep me coming back. The thing is I really want to like this game and in many ways I do enjoy it. I am coming back again after being away for about 9 months. I hope player interaction has improved.

    Hi for those considering checking the game again here's my take as a long time player. A few important things got added that could be overlooked. I'll try to list my favorite things. Ok here goes:

    Teleport to zone scrolls- they are closer to a mark system than I thought we'd get. Place them on your non-combat bar and when unencumbered click on it to see all the places you've been to. Hover over a location while pressing control key to see a description. Filter locations such as mines to chose to see just mines you have marked. You can zone right inside them. They are teachable and craftable.

    Ok next favorite is the mail system. You can mail almost anything even gold. It is great to use if you sell or buy an item to just mail the gold and item. Now just to get a sent mail would be great.

    Also we did get looking for group accessed with alt f to create or join a group.

    We got universe chat and it is free to anyone now. /u is the way to see it. Also We also got a trade channel just pull out a couple of tabs and resize them Trade channel is /t.

    You now get free lot deeds from questing. A taxed row size and a village size that must be placed in a pot. The Oracle test gives 500 gold a day and row lot tax went down to 250.

    You can have your own dungeon and basement on any lot you claim.

    There are new dungeons, new creatures, new creatures to tame, new things to craft, new things to find, and much more.

    Don't miss the music system if that's what you enjoy. You can even sync songs in group. Oh and speaking of groups those can be bigger now.

    So jump in and explore. It is a free to play game now so no loss. Personally I subscribe but hey that's not required so it costs nothing for anyone to play as well. Enjoy.

    Improved since when?

    It is always improving. The main problem to bug resolving and new features is that there is a small team trying to make a big game. So its a slow speed, improving.

    Its a shame, but its what it is.

    Said that, I still playing it since 2014 if I recall well enough, sometimes with my main character, sometimes with the second.

    In my opinion, the best thing of this game is its freedom of classes, of action and the best of all its comunity.

    And for the final question: always (to me). Give it a try, and make your own opinion.

    "Improved" in terms of stuff added to the game: yes, greatly.
    "Improved" in terms of better playable: till 2 days ago yes, after last patch: don't ask but it may be repaired soon .. *speaks a little prayer*
    "Improved" in terms of reaching the earlier goals: a bit but far away from target
