It's a small community, but you shouldn't have a problem finding players in the EU/US afternoon and evening hours.

Also, if you decide to get into it, go join the rest of the main community on Discord at: http://chat.toxikk.com

I was going to ask the same thing....I've heard nothing of this game recently
Plaid Nov 19, 2016 @ 3:53pm 
It can't be worse than the UT4 pre-alpha, can it? Even with that paltry community I managed to play all through afternoons and evenings. (Then they had an update that completely changed the grenade launcher and I uninstalled it out of disgust, lol. But I still want something like this to play, so, here I am)
Plaid Nov 19, 2016 @ 10:19pm 
well, if it goes class based I'm probably out :/
(depending on the classes, actually)

Well maybe not class based, I mean keep the guns on the map and stuff, but allow players to start with a gun (maybe not cerberus or other heavy, strong guns) and allow them to add skins for the guns they start with (or even all the guns)

Another option to classes, Create all new guns for class play (Keeping the guns on the map that are already there as pickupable BETTER weapons)

Maybe, ARs, Subs, more plasma rifles, weaker guns in general for starting, but with custom skins. Make some for free, some for paid and make money yourselves off of it.

There are community made mods, running on community hosted servers.
You need the full/paid game to be able to connect to these servers. They can be found on the bottom of the server browser. The ones starting with "MOD" or "Testlab" are running mods.
These servers also support auto-download of the mods and maps that are installed on them. When you connect the first time, you might get stuck on a black screen for some time while the game needs to do some background processing. Just be patient, it only happens the first time new maps or models are loaded.

I am glad that TOXIKK has neither classes nor an excessive amount of weapons. This "simplicity" is what attracted me to the game in the first place. Chess has 6 different pieces, Go only 1. Skill based games often come with a small set of elements and players have to use them efficiently. There is also no need for a sprint key. Wall-dodge+jump combinations - when done properly - get you around the map so fast that you have to be careful not to bump into obstacles all the time.

Here's a video of a community made Trials / Speedrun game mode. It's all about getting to the goal as fast as possible. It's using the game's standard movement system, so all these jumps also work in any regular Bloodlust or Cell Capture match.

Ah yeah thanks, I did eventually find the mod section earlier and edited my post :) Thanks!

I see what you mean, It makes sense alright i'll give you that.

I do like the movement that way, just for some people they might not get it and write the game off before giving it a chance..

Custom skins for guns would be nice though, right? I'm going to get the money together to buy this ASAP so I will check out that mod section then!

i dont think any changes would bring people to the game. Arena fps is an old game type. People already seen what its about. Some like it, the majority plays overwatch.
i dont know what else would help the game grow except for good marketing. Ill be recommending this game to everyone. Its really good, even the F2P is awesome which is rare to see these days.

No servers available for free players right after they release the free to play is released... Seems like the game has been dead and aren't paying for servers or letting people host their own. Sucks i wanted to play this game.

No servers available for free to play players?
What?
There have been servers available, there were just some issues with server reformatting to fit the new bill. And those were announced multiple times.

There are players, as I stated try turning off "SC Matchmaking"

Worked for me, seems since I was new and none of the players online were also new, it made me unable to find a session. Changing this fixed it, give it a shot!

My suggestions:

<change the game's genre entirely>
Uhhhhh.....

Lol? Adding skins is changing the games genre, nice.

Nice troll bro, but everyone can see there's a missing post between Plaid's two posts referring to "class based" out of the blue - the same post by you which was talking about zombie survival mode (lol).

Next time I'll just screw netiquette and quote the whole thing, thanks for reminding me.
