Was it a good idea to buy this game?
I guess not. I feel like I threw my money into the trash atm. Why the hell is this game still on sale, if no one's playing it?

The annoying thing about this game is it wouldn't take too much effort to improve it. The basics are all there, it just needs few tweaks to be great. The movement for example getting rid of power ups and fine tuning the maps. The core shooter can be fun.

why cant i connect to servers, thats what is annoying me right now. I havnt touched this game since i bought it (like a year now) and when i finally decide to load it up, servers have high traffic? :/

The game is dead. The servers were shut down
Nari Apr 23, 2013 @ 5:42pm 
I'm really disappointed, because I wanted to play it online. I won't play the single. What a shame.. :(

I saw that the Nexuiz.com website went up again today. Hoping that's a sign the master servers will return as well. I hope, at least. I'm sure a lot of this is out of the hands of Illfonic, since they had a timed exclusivity agreement with THQ that I think would last for 3 years, and there's probably a lot of legal crap to deal with in order to figure out what they can do with the game now that THQ is gone. I did notice that one of Illfonic's staff that was most active in his contacts with the community - Kehdrin, seems to have disappeared off Steam, along with all the Steam Workshop maps he created for the game. Not sure what to make of that, whether Illfonic is still around or not?

EDIT: Just read that Nordic Games gave the highest bid for the rights for Nexuiz in the THQ auctions, so if the court approves on May 15th, they'll get Nexuiz along with Red Faction and Darksiders. No idea what that means for the future of Nexuiz, other than that the IP doesn't seem to have been entirely abandoned.

It sounds like the OP wasn't aware that THQ, the parent company of illfonic went bankrupt and oob. Therefore there is no longer $$ support from the mothership for Illfonic to put any more effort into this. They are keeping it up and the one server running is probably what were going to see. You can still duel with friends though and start up private games etc. Aside from bot-matches, thats what I would recommend! Let me know if you want to play sometime and I'll jump in a duel or join the main server with ya.

Its a cool game, but really a shame it never got the player base it deserved. Now that THQ is out of commission its only worse.

I can't access online, i see no main server, i cant start a friends game, only LAN
am i missing something?
Nari Apr 25, 2013 @ 7:06pm 
Nope, that's the point. All servers are down since months, they probably won't be back up again....

Hmm, I just tried to get on and all of a sudden there is a "server high traffic" message that was not there three days ago. If its Nexuiz, you can guarantee there is no high traffic lol. It sounds like more problems..... wonderful.

Trust me though, a server was up and you could start an online game literally three days ago.

If the court approves Nordic Games as the new owner of the IP, and they decide to continue supporting the product, I'm sure they'll do something along that line in order to revitalize the game after these months in legal limbo. Looks like the court stuff is set to happen on May 15.

we must wait then
But we can use Hamachi cant we? to do LAN game
