Is there anyone who still plays either this kingdom wars or the first one? i got the second one and ill tell you in no way was i upset at any part of the game, aside from some of the bugs but that sh*t just happens. I would like to know how active the game is because i just got my life back together and would love to get back into my strategy games, even this one you guys the people who made it did a beautiful job in my mind. i have always loved strategy games since risk, and warcraft and have never seen anything that has fantasy factions, and castle siege. im poor right now so i cant get the new one but please save the other games! i know im apart of the small few who love it but i would even get back into programming and learn to help if i had to XD

These games are fun but I've lately only played on occasion, the new one looks fun to play so i'm going to try it soon.

I don't have the requirements to play the new one, and KW2 is all but dead.

Loving this one :) Also their new game is sooo good as well. It's in its early stages of dev, but it's just like this one but newer, so i expect it to be much better soon!

As sad as it it to admit - the multiplayer side of MKW is dead, and just a dozen online games have been played in the past month. Quite a few players still play the game in singleplayer though - guess it`s the zombie survival game mode and the campaign for new players.

Majority of KW players are either still paying KW1, or MKW.

I guess it's because it's so hard to balance, seeing as there's such a huge skill cap between majority of multiplayers and those who know the game well.

Also, with the last changes, hotkeys like closing gates with G are gone, and overlapping building hotkeys with fast building select hotkeys make the game even more annoying to play.

At this point, maybe consider removing development on the multiplayer aspect of KW2 altogether. It seems too much like an incomplete game with it still hanging over you. Then maybe revitalize it if you have the time and resources to put in the work.

In my opinion, the game is still plenty fun if you just focus development on Coop and singleplayer. Without a solid playerbase of at least 1000+ people each month in multiplayer, it's hard to know whether certain things are unbalanced, or simply put to good use through experience. I guess it's hard to balance a game when there's so many aspects to it right away.

Obviously this is up to you, but as one of the players who have put in the most hours in this game (as far as I know, only one has played more hours in total than me). If you focus on fixing the most popular gamemode, zombie survival first, and then maybe updating the AI of bots too, then maybe the game will be more popular by the time of the next sale.

the games just dead and done seems about the average amount of people on at a time is under 10
