Well I haven't played for a few months.. but when I did it still had a fair amount, nowhere near as many as the early days, but about the amount I'm used to seeing.. usually like 2000 on at once on midgard, but that server isn't too well populated I hear

14 is still going to be awhile.. so I don't know, playing would help pass the time atleast until it's out.. I've been wanting to play again too Dx probably going to be totally deserted when 14 does finally get released.. kinda depressing honestly

You could always make a trial account on your server to see how active it is, before you re-subscribe
