    Depends what time you get on it.. You can get a lot of people playing it, just needs to be in the right time.

    Official servers, mostly CTF and TDM.
    Some Black Death servers, + modded servers, those are always popular

    With the small community there are certain times of day that tend to have more players on. Soon you'll recognize the good players that have stuck around and you'll also figure out what the popular servers are. What usually happens is that the popular servers end up getting full and you have to spam join them until a slot opens up.

    Black Death servers ? Really ? ::D: And yeah @Nightmare799 at it's current state I wouln't pay a dollar for KAG, I would d/l only if it was free. And I am really sorry to say something like that but it's the truth. KAG has future only if it becomes a free game and all the other "I can find a server whenever I want to" it's just bs.

    Theres 90 players on right now. Theres never a time when you can't find a server. In the server browser, there's a bunch of specifications. make sure you have those looking like this[​IMG]

    Yeah, I think the server browser could use some better indication as to which server have people, but these little icons will tell you how many people are in a server:

    Always sort by Player Count and make sure you're searching for all game modes. You can't always find the exact region you want but you'll pretty much always be able to find any populated default game mode server and a handful of modded servers.

    And honestly, the playercount seems pretty low but there are plenty of "ded gaems" out there that are actually 100% unplayable because there's literally not a single other person playing. KAG really ain't in bad shape.

    Ususally when I get on there are around 100-120 people playing.

    Yes the game is very worth it it, I've had tons of fun playing it and it's very addictive once you've played a little bit, it combines arcade like percicion combat with a tile-based environment to make a team-based strategy game that's still has the fun of an arcade game.

    Even if there are only 30 people online when you're online, it's still very fun, I mean at minimum you really only need 10 players on a CTF server to have fun on it.

    10 - 20 is ideal range imo, with 10 players being the best (anything less or more is just bad)

    If you honestly think KAG is dead you don't know what a dead game is.

    I've played games that have an average of 7 players online, and some with none.

    If not dead, it's in a frickin' coma it won't wake from.
    Developers have pumped it with sedatives since 1180.

    You don't have to sort by player count. You can pull that filter slider bar from the minimum of 0% to 1%, and you'll only see servers with people online.

    Between 3 and 10 PM, neutral timezone, you can expect lots of people on the EU servers. Add or subtract eight hours for the US or Australian servers.
