All is not lost! As of the launcher's inclusion of OverSoul, there have been two Discord servers (the OverSoul Community Run Discord and the Dragon Nation Tournament) set up to discuss the game that have proven much more active of late than the forums, and there are a good number of people there that play the game regularly. There were a couple of recent tournaments stemming from these servers which attracted more players from out of the woodwork. Both were pretty well attended with around 40 participants each and there is currently another one of these being planned for this month which I will give further information on as I get it and attempt to direct people towards it as I did the Dragon Nation tournament once sign-ups for it open.
Furthermore, efforts have been made on Twitter to communicate with the staff about efforts to revive OverSoul. Alina herself has helped sponsor the prizes for Dawn's and Dragon Nation's tournaments and is in contact with the host of the coming tournament. Alina has stated that there will also be an official tournament between now and December, and if we can maintain the levels of activity that we've had that there will be a release in December of two characters including a playable version of Treasure Chest.
There is a good amount that has been happening of late with the game and real reasons for optimism. While we're still a far cry from OverSoul's peak days and there may not always be people in Solace, chances are there are people online scavenging the World Map to find characters or grinding it out in dungeons. I've been playing every day the past couple months and there are others like Corn Flakes, Enchanted Breeze, Atreue, Jadow, and Genge to name a few that I see either in-game or talking about the game on Discord on a daily basis.
If you have fond memories of the game then now is the time to play it, with people at AE taking notice and keeping an eye on the game's levels of interest and activity. As I speak I'm levelling an evolved Darkon Drago.
