Why the heck is this game dead?
I mean, come on. Its awesome! Honestly, i prefer it over TF2. Now if only Monolith didn't abandon the game. It had so much potential.

I kind of wish they woukd sell the IP to someone who would actually take care of it. Someone needs to start a petition :P

No marketing or updates to fix problems = dead game.

I'm play 2 days in that game, and... It's freakin' unbelivable, only TDM have playin' people, other modes are fully abandoned. Game with no objectives is quickly become a boring, annoying job, I think I'll play in GCI just for a few days and delete with no regrets.

Network lag or graphics lag? If you're complaining about network lag it's because there are no servers. Everything is peer to peer hosting. Sep 25, 2013 @ 1:29pm 
are the servers dead to everyone ?

Did you not read my post? There are no servers. It's peer to peer hosting. That means the host is someone playing the game. If they quit the game, everyone is kicked out.

Poor marketing and no support. The game needs a lot of balancing and bug fixes. The fact that it's peer to peer doesn't and has a tiring matchmaking system didn't help its popularity either.

Monolith makes good shooters but they have never been known for the support of their games. I'd be very cautious to purchase another title from them in the future.

This game has to be the best, and most enjoyable game that i have stumbled upon myself...Even though that it is kinda dead, still able to find a game in a pretty reasonable amount of time...Keep me entertained for hours

Main things that killed it was lack of marketing and unresolved bugs that exist to this day(Having a friend in party absolutely destroys ability to play for some reason along with the p2h selection process ignoring good hosts for some odd reason). Also the game isn't as easy to run effectively as tf2. Balance was a lesser issue but existed in the form of mainly ease of use issues.

All fixable things but got shoved to f2p then instead of having what most devs have occur which is spike developement greatly they kind of ignored the game afterwards(Not by studio choice probably but due to higher ups). Game was a blast though and you can still get matches going but generally is against vets or new players.

Hey now, I like my cardboard box with batman's face crayoned on it, and my cowboy hat, and my tophat with goggles. Speak for yourself.

Around where I live, the game's not dead, it's just not very crowded; the wait to find a TDM match in GCI is pretty much the same as the wait to find the map I want in TF2. For those of you who don't have a playerbase within P2P lag range...start one.
