As much as I hope for this to happen, I doubt it is going too. There aren't any new releases coming out that I have heard of, meaning that many people won't see the rush to come and play Ice. OM's also don't care about Ice's small population, as long as they test out the bugs when they ask them too.

if those bugs contain anything that has a need of owning some money there will have to be some ppl that actually have that money.

it is impossible for someone with money or ships to be online at any given time.

Plenty of people have poe and ships and Ice, no matter how small the population is.
There won't be any soon though if they keep banning them.

If you /gift me a month, I'll job for you at the next blockade. ;P

I have no plans to re-sub any time soon. I'm broke, and it's just not worth the money to play on Ice and Midnight.

That is because Ice isn't a normal ocean. It's a testing ocean, and where there are things to test, people come to play.

If you want normal game play, that's what the main oceans are for.

I was merely pointing out that fact to anyone else who hadn't realised it yet.

I mean whats the point of playing if there is nothing to do? they ruined it when they made the tournies less often. It may be better now but im guessing not. I mean i have no plans of playing on ice any time soon. It's like paying $10 to play by your self, which you could do but with many more people for free on a normal ocean. It makes no since that you have to be subscribed to play on ice, i mean why should people pay to help a game test its bugs? Its completely stupid they have lost complete interest in most that play on ice and the people currently playing are either the originals on ice or a newer player checking it out. I think all they need to do is make it a non subby ocean so that they would at least get a few more people and then they'd have more people to iron out all the bugs with the stupid updates they do. I mean come on now adding figure heads and bronze cannons? what does that do for anyone, u get on a ship and go wow look bronze cannons soooooooooo cool, no its just a money waster because what else is there to spend money on especially on ice. Thats the whole reason i quit, what do you have to spend 1.2m cash and 50ish ships? theirs nothing!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I have to admit... a hearty and I had a conversation on Cobalt, and the BLUF was that we essential pay for the privilege of being BETA testers on ICE. Now, it's true that playing on ICE lets folks see new releases before they hit production. However, it's also true that a lot of other companies subsidize their BETA testing. Maybe if there was some sort of incentive for playing on ICE - a "tester's discount" or something else of material worth - more players would go over there to do the actual testing. The other option would be to employ "professional" testers, and those folks almost never uncover all the bugs that players will find - players will always do something that the developers did not forecast or code for.

My suggestion would be that they take the people that are online ice 's own inhabitans, that will mean , non-dormant ppl and give them a lifetime acces to ice. People like me , i descovered many bugs during testing and i gave feedback to the none-ice player base. they could all read up in the ice update log. as could the Developers and Ocean masters.

Ye say ye are poor.. Perhaps from the poker tables?? I find the solo earnings and expeditions quite lucrative . More than covering costs of stock. I have been able to purchase all the fancy dany pets and clothes and furniture my wee heart .. and me family;s desire!..
We don't ge on as much as our regular ocean.. but is always something going on!
