Is this game dying out, or just starting to pick up
usually only 5-10 active servers in the US was wondering what stage this games community is in.

So.. the answer is yes? 600 concurrent players is laughably small for a multiplayer game, comparing to even old single player games, which rank easily 2000 on average. I haven't played NS2 much at all, couldn't get into it, too complicated... I had two copies gave out to some friends, they never played it :).

Not really that small.

There's always full servers.

The only people playing nowadays are curious Rookies who may or may not keep playing, and regulars/ pros.

It isn't really dying out or gaining, it's just middling out.

It's been at about 600-900 for the last few years, sales excluded.

At peak times (usually 2pm-8pm CST), it's usually 800, which is really good and there's lots of servers.

Of course there isn't 1000's of players, it isn't bloody mainstream game.
I'd preffer it that way too.

I have written a rookie manual (more like a paper manual) if you are interested in looking at the game again. Its on the steam forum with a pdf link.

dying, the devs officially handed it over to comunnity modders.

3 types left noobs, try hards/trolls , godtier ( the type that can determine a 40 player servers outcome on thier own)
