Where did vg go?

Recommended Posts

Ive been around for a good bit.  I went away for a while for work. Every day I thought about when I would come back to the server and joke around with my friends. SPOILER. Last 3 nights, nobodies been on.  Is PR dying?

As far I know it is most of the time 10 people are online. I know GDO is taking most of the Asian/Australian time zone players due to having better ping.

Not so all of them i guess, me myself while got online, VG comes at first (Aussie servers like more 300 ping for me, even though its close)

But i realized there's servers that has low ping ones, might be possible for few Asians, the Taiwan (Coop) and Japanese (Canned Catfood Gaming on both Deployment and Coop)

 

But, never know what's going on out there lately, so trying to catch-up/update..

There is still some players whether old/new seeding the server past few days as i saw, but they're also dead in some low pop situation (whether the boring maps, frequent crashing, violations etc.)

Most servers appear to be empty roughly around these hours. The US should wake up in a few hours and Europe and Russia will come back from work/school so then it should fill up for the next 12 hours or so.

Jokes aside, PR is not dying, but like guys already said, there are some times when server is poorly populated or empty for sure. Nothing to be concerned about though!

What can we say?  It's a 24 hours server, but the regular crowd isn't...

I keep an eye on the active PR players now and then, not just on our server, but on all servers -- people will always come and go, and play other games from time to time -- PR remains the go-to for squad based combined arms action whether it's COOP or Deployment, and the main servers are still maintaining high populations during peak hours.

An interesting thing to think about is what if people have been trained to enjoy PR in large groups, or at least several squad groups, making ANY low population PR Server an unattractive prospect when compared to other games they might own.  People might see "oh, my favorite server is off-peak right now, I'll play some other game instead for awhile"  instead of jumping in the low pop server and helping to seed it back to larger numbers, which could potentially bring in more people who also may still be deciding what to play that evening (PR or some other game).  Just a thought; I mean everyone takes breaks, I'm just coming back from a long one myself and trying to get back into these things.

Regardless of all of that, every server has it's off-hours, and GameTracker shows this one's peak times have been closer to day than evenings right now (talking same zones as you, USA times).  Here's hoping that Double_13's hard work will pay off in helping to re-popularize the COOP game mode, and fix so many frustrating bugs (and inept AI) ;)

People are starting to populate again, I know that updates tend to have people stay away due to bugs/errors that make it difficult to play.    Even with great people.  Just keep showing up and more will come.

Summer's always empty. People would rather go outside and play the real Project Reality. Very good graphics, but shit gameplay.

There have been and always will be periods where the Playercount will drop at below 20 players in average. It's just a phase. I for one enjoy the low pop times cuz it makes the maps more challenging

Dude,

 

I love that game, so realistic and addicting, but usually in here, i called it 'dishwashing' :P (satisfying and relieving stresses out from head)

But hey, that's what i do in real-life besides of studies :D

I think its time for a OPFOR event, right xD
That wil surely attract players and a lot of newbish regulars don't even know about this... Paging @=VG= TEDF

:bad:

I guess we could redo the Muttrah event from last year we didn't manage to finish. People seemed to like to bash the muricans as the Russians for a change.

Actually weird question. Is it also possible to host a PvP event on the servers? Like geographically, meaning  where you live? So say Eastern versus Western world which would mean I'd play with the East because I live there and play against say, everyone that lives in the western hemisphere? 

I'm fairly sure we have enough Russian, Polish, Asian players to go against the Americans, Germans and Brits. Perhaps even on a 40-40 type event. Say 4 maps. Something like that and recreating a defensive and later assualt situation? 

I'm just thinking aloud here.

I missed that one. Did the ruskies attack or defend the town?

Ruskies were the attackers from the south east with motorised divisions. Objective was to clear the city and then assault the carrier
