Cocurrent players are too few
It's saturday on Europe, and there are only 700 people playing cocurrently.
While Chivalry has 8k cocurrent players on it.
Of course Chivalry is on 75% sale, but anyway they are very good at maintaining players.
Natural Selection 2 has more interesting gameplay, and better graphic?
But what should be a problem? NS2 is keep losing players while games like Chivalry keeps having at least x3 more players than NS2.
I even heard that optimization works really good recently.
It's still far from dead, but i hope i could play ns2 even next year and years after that.
