dont buy this game
just dont. not even for 3 euros, it has nowone playing it and the devs dropped the support. worldwide, there are 3, 4 people per day playing it, and it can be on a server on the other side of the world where you have 300+ ping.

and that is world wide, not just regional. buy guns of icarus online instead, its only 1 euro more and it has around 1000 people per day playing it worldwide.

Around 1000 people per day, you say? Let's take a look at time before the latest sale, shall we? After all, there's where they'll probably descend to after the sales.

That's 250ish at the peak and less than 60 when low. In my experience, it gets harder to get in a game when there's less than 60 players. Not all of those 60 online are actively playing. Probably couple of full games going on and with luck, a half full lobby... maybe even in a region with good ping. You go there and will have to wait for a long time for it to fill up and start. Better have a good book to read while you wait. That's one of the 2 things in GoIO I hate: the way the matches are arranged. The other is the chinese plate game style repairing. Otherwise it's a nice game. Almost as good as this one.

But I digress, in the long run GoIO may be just as dead and the critically low player numbers will come higher up because of the lobby system. In ABu you can still play players vs bots even with few players, though that's not so fun. Theoretically you could even play alone vs bots.

Lol hardly any people play Guns of Icarus. Since the sale there's 3 max 4 rooms running on Europe server! This game isn't dead, I belong to a group that does weekly team plays. You're just not looking hard enough!

*600 HAHEM* against *12 HAHEM*

600 players? All I see is 80 players each day at any given time. It goes from 60-120 and never beyond. I am also speaking of EU servers which is 4 rooms tops filled and 3 empty. All of them are either biased as the good players are on non shuffle one team against newbies or shuffle with lows who leave because they play a non novice match and they got killed once so we end up without a critical role such as pilot or engineer.

You should also do something about your cough. If it sounds like 'HAHEM' it produces non natural sounds which may lead to something serious.

Do you even understand what I am saying? Pointless talking with you I see.

I think PewDiePie should play this game :) Then we would have players. Well anyways, I bought this game last september with some friends and at that time there were 10+ players on every night. I guess nowadays you just have to reference the charts more carefully and pick your playtime accordingly. Going to try to play a few games tomorrow somewhere around 5:30pm gmt / 19:30gmt if somebody wants to join!
