Dead game is dead...
Sorry guys, but this is an online-only game whose sole purpose is to fight other players online. As I write this there are 18 players online and the biggest match contains 3 of them. This is a joke. Frankly, I have never seen such a sad state on an online game... And it sucks cause frankly, the game is great. But right now its virtually unplayable except against bots.

Play it as long as you can play it, it's a great game, spread the word and help keeping it alive.
Stating it is dead won't bring other players and has a chilling effect to those who are thinking about trying it.

"right now its virtually unplayable"

The problem catweazle is that its not playable to begin with. I HAVE played it as long as its possible to play it. Right now thats 0 hours, 0 minutes and 0 seconds. Online games with less than 4 players arnt actually functionnal, and if you think reading my post has a chilling effect on new players, that is nothing compared to the chilling effect of dling 4GB+ on a tight bandwith limit only to end up being faced with EMPTY servers. Not low-pop. Empty.

Please use the server browser to find games. You just posted this and if you look there are currently 10 people playing on T2003 - which is a pretty full server and should be a pretty lively game. T1003 also has 8 players currently playing so it should also be fun at 4v4. There's almost always players playing and our numbers are actually improving. We're far from dead. We've taken a dip for sure, but as we continue to improve the game we're finding more and more players are playing.

Remztan, I appreciate your enthousiasm but, at the risk of bursting your bubble, 18 players is hardly a healthy playerbase. In fact its nothing short of pathetic. Im at work right now so i cannot check servers, but when I did yesterday I could not find one above 3 players. But even at 10, that means you have ONE server that is about HALF full. Thats not something to brag about.

Don't get me wrong, I am not bashing the game itself. Gameplay is fantastic. But most of us don't have unlimited bandwith, and yes, i am warning potential players away. Counter-productive you may say, but thats the nature of the beast. If the game doesnt work, be it because of a bug or because there is no one to play it with, then expect people to point it out.

Not only that, but the f2p thing is a huge "♥♥♥♥ you" to anyone who paid for this game...

yep. bought this game as soon as i could. played it for about 3 hours. was quite fun at start. tho playing with friends was quite hard as we couldnt queue together. Quite sad, cause we just quite WoW and played 5vs5 Arena. Now its like 1vs0 or 2vs3 at best. and i got a flippin "black" armor for spending 13€. you see almost no difference.

Would have definitely played it more if it didnt feel like an alpha version when i bought it.

Sad news, this was a fun game. I paid for it, and I'm not sad I did, I had fun with it.

Eh, it just needed something to keep you interested. As they didnt find a good ay to do this, the game kinda crumbled.

This game (Forge) is very good, but it's hard to play when there aren't many players playing. Especially when there are so many other games with many players (even brand new games that launched just this past week) to play with. Pretty sad. How about you all go in other games and try to bring players to Forge? Or maybe it's already been tried?

does anyone know what you get for buying it because i bought it like 3 days before it went f2p and when i launched it i couldn't find any servers that's like 19 euro i just threw out the window :(

Sure, you received the the Starter Pack, VIP access, an exclusive Title, and the exclusive complete Pioneer Armor Set for the Assassin, Pathfinder, Pyromancer, and Warden. You'll also get the exclusive Pioneer Armor set for the Shaman when patch v1.15 comes out (which is very soon).

I bought the game before it was released to be a free to play and didn't get jack.

I hope this game can pickup a playerbase. It would be a damn shame to see it fizzle out.
Remztan  [developer] Mar 25 @ 6:35am 
Alcatraz256, it doesn't look like you've Played FORGE since 5/2013. So how do you know you didn't receive anything? I checked and you do have VIP status and the Exclusive Pioneer Armor Sets. You just have to login and play :)
