Why is this game not very popular anymore?
I find a couple full servers but the ping is about 150-300 and the rest of the list is just empty 0/64 servers with 700+ ping. Why have people stopped playing?

Just click the filter at the top that says players, it will sort them by player count. I haven't noticed any decrease in the player count lately.

I do use that but it's not as active as it used to be.

I see 1000 to 1500 players online at peak hours, lowest at 600 to 700 in the wee hours. Not sure what your problem is.

Aye ... I never have problems finding enough nearly full servers for my taste ... although those with a low Ping, no surprise,are most active, during the evening times in europe

I agree with the comment above. However most people seem to have moved to the Call of Duty series and the Battlefield series, yea i know its dissapointing

I dont know about u guys but servers like 2jfg/40-1/simrai are always full. When i want to play i always find people populated with maximum players!

Well here in Straya there is always a couple servers mainly AUZ-NZ that are always full.

Main problem is the populated servers are all 300 + ping and the empty ones are 20-30 ping. But there's only about 3-4 full servers and they're terrible.

I'm from the UK and there are quite a few full servers at all times of the day. It's 10.30 in the morning here and there is over a 1000 people playing it now.

The game is about three years old. There are very very few servers that risk offering cutom maps, custom mods, like IOM. Same old maps mean boredom. When they do, they seem to stay mostly empty. The community in general does not seem to like custom content, probably seeing it as inferior quality to official maps and content.

TWI are very very slow to make new content, or to make custom content from the community official, which may increase its exposure and acceptance. They have also basically admitted that soon after RO2 was released, they turned their focus to their new game.

This game is dying because of several reasons.

They chased away most of the RO Ost vets right off the bat because of the horribly broken gameplay at release, and the itty bitty spamfest meatgrinder maps. In RO Ost, on some of the tanking maps, I'd drive my tank from spawn and it would take 10 mins just to get to the action the maps were so big. In RO2, in 10 mins on some maps your reinforcements are all gone and its game over.

They also dumped this game into the 'bargain bin' sales repeatedly which brought in a whole bunch of idiotic ♥♥♥♥♥s who continually tked the ♥♥♥♥ out of everyone and chased away even more vets.

And last but not least when they had their 'free to keep' giveaway day, they had a bunch of cheaters get the game on multiple accounts and completely wrecked the game for a few weeks before a fix was in place from TWI.

This game was on life support from the start.

I played RO Ost from the very beginning right through the end when TWB shut down their only N.A. server. From my perspective TWI just didn't listen to the vets, they were more concerned with making a CoD clone with small terrible maps that didn't allow for any type of teamwork or coordination or tactics. Its spawn, get shot, repeat process, etc.

I quit playing RO2 a few months ago, with the issues that still remain with gameplay, the ♥♥♥♥♥s who tk constantly and don't even bother to apologize and the cheaters, I threw in the towel. I am waiting now for Festung Europa. I hope the devs for that game see what a mess TWI made with RO2 and learned from this debacle of a game.

Basically in a nutshell TWI are terrible devs and ruined their Red Orchestra series in an attempt to make a CoD clone and cash in on a big payday.

Get ♥♥♥♥ed, son.
