Download the Dark Seas beta client and play on Obsidian. It's a new ocean with good activity and the future of the game will likely be focused there, but I suppose you could also play on Emerald as well, if you wanted. You could even send me a tell if you're looking for friends! I used to play on Meridian too. Sadly it's dead now.

Obsidian is a bit different to the other oceans as can be seen looking at
this link

As Shademan said is is currently under beta testing but it may or may not be the future of the game. There are a lot of players who don't want to start again and others that don't like some of the changes (for example automatic sinking PVP outside of a nursery area)

The future may be obsidian, it may be emerald, it may be both, but almost everyone has left meridian and the sub ocean.

Hope OP doesn’t mind me tagging on here, but I’m in the same situation. Recently returned after not playing for many years. Wondering what the remaining active oceans are? Sounds like maybe just Obsidian and Emerald? I’m not super sold on the PvP heavy idea of Obsidian so I’m curious if there’s another ocean with good activity I should consider? I would probably prefer an ocean with lots of active players, even if that means it’s the PvP one.

Thanks!

PVP isn't a big deal based on the top 3 crews its about 4% ob battles. Its not appealing to most as it just doesn't pay out. If they tried to make a PVP server it failed in my opinion but there are many good changes on the new ocean.
