Depends where you are and what time you connect.

If you're connecting to European servers during their peak hours, it's over 1,000 co-current players. If you're West Coast US late at night, it can drop to 300.

that's the only server that i play on back then because i just like my multiplayer games with plenty of players

No first game is dead and I've played in communities of players with less than this for years. You don't need 100k players to have a gaming community.

To the OP: Game is pretty hardcore with a hardcore community. Expect to get a serious slap on how bad at FPS the average gamer is.

Is the game hard, or do people just take it seriously?

Both.
The game mechanics themselves aren't that hard overall, but getting a good grip on them and using them effectively is the challenge.
For marine you basically only need to know how to press E and aim.

For Aliens you have to be fast, bob and weave and use lots of group tactics.
Aliens is usually more intense because losing a Onos or Fade means you lose a LOT of team res.

This game is a serious one and is about competition, though there is a lot of silly fun to be had.
Stuff like a Gorge hydra spam in a hallway or even a Marine base will have you laughing for 10 minutes straight.

The game isn't nearly as hard as people make it out to be, you just have to know how to move really fast as alien and aim as a marine.

Cool. Sounds like a fun challenge to be had.
