The Myth that Verdun is Dying
Have seen many posts on here that claim "Verdun is Dying" however if you look at player counts that's simply incorrect.

If you look at July 2018 we had 125 players on average, nowadays we have 180 players on average in 2020. If you want to credit that to corona in January Verdun had 190 players in-game on average.

It's simply false to say that this game is dying when the player base is larger than it was two years ago.

This game is utter ♥♥♥♥♥. Typical Unity game, that looks ♥♥♥♥ even on Ultra, has a janky first person controller (amateur devs need to create an actual controller instead of using the default unity one) and overall boring af.
I wouldn't be as harsh if it weren't for the fact that this game (and Tannenberg) got such glowing reviews. The reality is... different. Let's leave it at that.
Average players last 30 days: 177. Considering there's currently 7,800,000,000 people on this planet... Yeah.
Oh, and btw. when was the last time you and your friends played this game? Don't answer, it's a rhetorical question, because i already know.

There was a sale few days ago.

In peak you saw ~500 players at a time.
Now it's about to return to normal. 3 servers in peak times.

Mostly low level beginners. Not fun nor challenging for a high XP player.

"game is dead" is a stupid meme that needs to die.

I'm sorry that the children of the Sudan haven't been given gaming PCs and a copy of Verdun for your entertainment.

Well me and my friend Rake played some verdun yesterday. We played against my good friend Starchild as well. Also I played Tannenburg with Imabanana and Rasputin too so yeah. The last time I played this game with my friend was 1 day.
The game is in utterly bad shape because it's not evolving. No new interesting maps or mechanics, no vehicles at all. We don't even have stationary MGs at the western front:csgoanarchist:

Why does it need to "evolve"? There is this strange concept that you buy a product, and you have that product. You don't buy a product and expect a lifetime of free upgrades.

Also, why do we need vehicles? It's a first person shooter. Not every shooter requires vehicles, especially one set in the 1st World War. This isn't Battlefield 1.

Stationary Machine Guns though, perhaps. From what I've read, the devs tried them but they were either overpowered or too predictable (people just learnt where they were and avoided that spot entirely)

^^This. It was also a bad move for them to make Tannenberg separate from Verdun (hell, the game has less players than Verdun, lol). Not a smart choice when your player base is not consistently mid-high.

They should combine both into one, add more maps/mechanics to keep it fresh. Hell, if we can't have driveable vehicles, why not make some tank escort missions like wolfenstein enemy territory? Or give an officer an ability to call in a strafing run(and let them control it I am sure mechanics like this would improve it soo much more.

It wouldn't work that way, it would still be separate content that would need to be purchased. Just now you have a double paywall for those that don't have Verdun.

It was considered but odds are it will be too limited for a game mode in itself. Strafing runs weren't really done against trenches.

It's not dead if one is fine with playing with mostly beginners (who sometimes do not even know the keys) or with bots.

(Due to some bot mechanics, after some time, one realizes that each match on a certain map runs the same. E. g. entering the enemy trench at the left, capturing, own bots moving towards middle leaving the left empty, enemy spawning at the left, reentering left and recapturing the trench. Exactly happening each single match at Argonne, if playing Germans.)

But having a really challenging and fun match, is rare.

Well since there are bots in the game it can never be truly dead.

i like the game as a new player but thats deadly empty.
May be fusioning the to game in the same one could boost.
At long term anyway to much work that they cant affort with a small team.
