Let's face it, the game is practically dead. Half my friends barely play it and the max I've seen at a time is 6 players. (In referring to AUS). I accept that this is still early days for the game, but it will never pick up if something isn't done about it. There are two ways this could be fixed, involvement more of the community and of the devs. Community involvement: Some day a week set as "Tuesday Night Trench Run", where players battle out against each other for a place on a leaderboard. If no players are available, the player could go up against bots, (with the highest possible hacks on). More leaderboards and competitions (link in with the above idea). Quests or daily challenges, could help keep player retention. Play with the dev day, where players can meet, greet, grab a drink and chat with the devs. This could allow more communication with the devs and normal steam players without the use of a 3rd party program. Older players or more prominent could also come in and socialise and welcome new players. Let's face it, something has to be done, and we, the community, should do it! Discuss!
