The multiplay is more niché than dead I think. It's enjoyable and I hope it lasts. You may sometimes need a little patience before the server fills up nicely.

AirBuccaneers is the next mystery game to be added to the bma groupees bundle, which will then be like 12 games for $5, so AirBuccaneers will cost 42 cents, and im sure there will be lots of noobs joining multiplayer. feel free to friend me, since i bought the bma bundle, and will install and learn this game if there are ppl that will play with me.

I got the game with the bma bundle, but there doesnt seem to be that many people on at the same time. You'd think with over 18000 bundles sold, there would be more people playing it. And I'd say it's the best game in that bundle. :-?

no, it said it was an invalid code.

I think it's a time thing, I've still got people playing at 1 AM CST USA. Earlier there was 4 servers nearly filled. Overall it's a really fun game, it's definitely not normal, but there's something satisfying about piloting + cannoning+ melee defense on a 1 cannon gunship.

Multiplayer is about to die it seems. They really need to step it up with some patches to fix and add the most unnecessary things. We were about to organize a big game with friends and various small teams, but had to cancel because of lack of features to setup a controlled environment.
Can't lock servers with a password, so everyone would jump in. Can't kick or ban either after someone else joins. Only way possible is setting up a LAN server and have everyone connect through it over a VPN and no way i'm going to explain to everyone competing how to set that up.
Kinda glad we found out the lack of possibilities before everyone purchased the game. Shame, the game is so fun when you have some nice balanced teams going :(

wow, there are so many players that you cant have a friends only game bcs a swarm of strangers constantly jump into your game? cool. i thought this game was almost dead...

im sure most ppl would leave if you ask them to. or at worse, just refuse to start the game till they leave and even the worst griefer would get bvored and leave, i think.
Verdian_ Mar 3, 2013 @ 12:17pm 
Yeah and do what when someone else joins during the game? Not being able to add a password to a game or being unable to kick ppl is not acceptable when you are trying to have organised match-ups.

its not that dead. there is always one server full or allmost ful and other one with few around if you want some slower paced action. game is seriously a lot of fun to play with friends over teamspeak.

hope to see linux port coming soon though. currently playing with wine.. runs well but native would be perfect

:-( I think it dies more and more every day. This one server you are talking about is everything but fun. I'm currently Level 5, still learning but heavy on teamplay. One side is stuffed with veterans, the other side is full of bots and noobs like me.

Every game the weak side loses. In Deathmatch often 2:16 and more. No teamplay on the noob side, just hopping on ships, dying and so on.

I really see potential in AirBuccaneers but the community is nearly non existent. Out of disappointment, I'm switching to Guns of Icarus (thanks to some Indie Bundle), hoping the community is more vital. But I guess both games are going under like many very inovativ titles before them.

The devs really dropped the ball. They released the game 2/3rds done (or so) and disappeared. They pay no attention to the community. Are they working on fixes or not? What will these fixes be? Nothing. My suspicion is that they are not capable of overhauling the game without it causing serious problems. But who knows.

Too bad -- with a little more work and more professionalism, it probably could've been something much more successful.

The devs haven't dissappeared exactly, but their communication has been pretty sporadic of late and they probably have forgotten about this forum. You'll have better luck on their own. My own guess is that they haven't allocated much resources for the game post release. It is pretty worrying. Even if they fix the game later on, they might have to rebuild community from scratch.

So they say, at least.
What will these fixes be?
Well, at least nerfing bouncing so that you can't get across the map with it, balancing perks and doing something about the team balance. They also mentioned something about automatically relocationg players to a new server when the current one shuts down for maintenance because of Unity 4 memory leak issue they haven't been able to fix yet.

I really hope they get the Mac and Linux versions out and soon. That should bring some new and loyal players. Also, they should make it more LAN-friendly. ABu has always been pretty popular on lans.

Oh and DerKleineDude, GoIO has its own issues of vets stacking teams:

It's basically the same thing + you have to sit in a lobby. More active devs, though.
