    70 players and 101 servers the moment I am typing this. If you don't do something drastic I give it maximum a year.

    Let's see here, it's exam season for the majority of the playerbase, so most people are probably busy right now... honestly, I'm getting pretty sick of you whining and complaining about how "dead" the game is.

    The only thing that is dead here is the horse you're beating @Leo.

    There will be a dedicated player base for a long time to come, as KAG is addictive as hell. And @Auburn has a point anyway. The game may not have thousands of players on constantly, but it's a great game to go back to when you're bored.

    Honestly I don't give a fuck if you are getting "sick". Do not read my posts.

    It is a good question, why would you bother posting a useless topic like this? Lol.

    it's living because there are 5+ modded servers on the first top 8 servers

    vanilla & official sucks, let the modded servers live!

    Well average below 100 players isn't really active, either. The game has too many problems to really fix with this current version, though.

    I guess I'm strange because in some ways I like that there are not a insane number of players. You trade mass multi-player with a smaller intimate group of core players and the result is a more enriched gaming experience as you bump into them often enough to make friends (unless your objective is motherhubbardry :rektlord:). Instead of a sea of anons that eventually you have no attachment to you get experienced players with their crazy strategies, insane skills and weird quirks that you want to play with.

    The perfect amount of KAG players for me is enough to fill your 32 slot CTF server to the point where it lags my laptop to oblivion, which I feel happens often :wink:
    The fact that I might know most of those players playing is the icing on the cake ::D:

    We should be grateful this game is still alive. Even when you're 90 years old, you don't mourn over the day that you will die; you celebrate the day that you were born, and you celebrate that you are still alive. If you must constantly wonder when you will die, you are not enjoying the life you still have available to you, and your death will come sooner. Preserve this game and celebrate its existence; you'll be much more motivated to keep playing it.

    KAG's a game that took me a long time before I started to get bored. I have been playing it for around 2 years, and it is always a game I can come back to and play whenever. I do agree that the player base is going down, which you can tell from here. http://steamcharts.com/app/219830#All
    I agree that there will be a time when no one is playing kag, but we should be grateful that people still play it. As for you server hosters, if you are paying for a public server, I would shut down the server if I were you, because there are always official servers for people to play on. If your not paying for your server, then I would keep it active unless you want to use your resources for something else. This is just my personal opinion, so don't hurt me. :heart:

    EDIT: Well said @PeggleFrank. :)

    The official servers are shizzle compared to BD.
    Also, it's quite thankless to advice admins to shut their servers.

    Long live KAG. I feel like a boost in competitive play would breathe new life into the game. MLK Season 2? Regardless, player retention is still an issue.

    This is a screenshot of how many servers are up atm.
    http://gyazo.com/0e05c4c0c51766f33f89586934cd35c3

    96 servers with 94 players.

    I'm not saying that all server owners who are paying for their servers should shut down their server(s), but having basically the same amount of players as servers is just silly, and they would save money.

    Game's been "dying" forever. Here's the last year, the spike is last year's steam summer sales.

    Definitely getting low in the tail, but its by no means a linear drop off with these things.
