    EDIT 4: We are LIVE once again!
    Currently playing on Haste's server: "[USWEST][32P] GTB: CLASSIC CTF + FF". Join in on the fun!

    EDIT3: Its Sunday week two!
    Starting off on the EU server this week because the aus ctf server is down. Juxta ++ come join us!

    "[CTF server JUXTA++ WORKSHOPS ADDED EU SERVER]".

    EDIT2: Its Sunday! Week one
    I'm starting off in the Aus CTF server, join me if you dare! Also, post on here where other people are hanging out. (Remember, no RP servers :rollseyes:).
    EDIT1: Adding poll and goals

    My goals for this are:

    1. Remind people classic is fun.
    2. Get more people to play KAG Classic.
    3. More servers for Classic (because this will generate more players).
    4. Eventually Gather

    I'm going to go ahead and add a poll to the top of the thread for what day of the week we should do. Until the results of this poll are in I'm going to arbitrarily set the day to Sunday. Classic day = Sunday.
    What does this mean? Just get on and play whenever you usually have time to play games, in the morning, throughout the day, or in the evening. You can post when you will be around, I personally will be around on Sundays from (GMT 8:00-10:00 and 18:00-24:00), my timezone is -9GMT so I could make the early and late games. When you get on classic, just pop into which ever server has the most people on non RP, we will stick to CTF and maybe TDM.
    I'll see you on Sunday! ::):

    EDIT--END

    Classic is pretty much dead, you can get on and there will be a server with 5-10 people on it, but more than 20 people is pretty rare (for non RP servers). I would like to see something like Gather, or even just a day out of the week event where more people would show up at given time(s) of day. A few extra servers would be in order, and maybe a white list so we can keep out griefers, hackers and exploiters.

    The KAG Gather was really cool and worked well for classic, many people played there for 5-6 months then the main people behind it went afk and it died. For those of you who didn't ever try it see here for an idea: Gather FAQ.

    The KAG gather wasn't perfect, but when it worked it was the best moderately competitive scene in KAG. (Moderately competitive would be in between a random slog in an unlimited tickets server with 64 people and a 5v5 clan war). You could get on, and just play with 4 other people that knew what they were doing against a team of 5 other competent players. This system made games more fun, without being too stressful because you were just playing for yourself and your team instead of your clan's rep like in a clanwar. Sometimes it required sitting in the queue for hours at a time until a match was made, and when it was made by that time someone in the queue wouldn't even show up. It was a system with many flaws, but still worked well 95% of the time. Playing in the KAG Gather was the most fun I have ever had in this game.

    We don't have to revive Gather now. That will come if this works the way I hope it will. I just want to see how many people would be interested in a day of the week KAG classic event, or even a KAG Gather event.

    Me. I love gather. (what about @cepiarz @karolloPL ).
    Killatron :
    I don't think that old gather players will want this, but we can try.

    I wasn't really wanting to make new clans specifically for classic, I kind of doubt the community for classic would be able to do that at this point. Also, I'm adding this to the OP, so if you already read this, you can skip:

    1. Remind people classic is fun.
    2. Get more people to play KAG Classic.

    As an old Gather player, I want this badly. Gather, along with playing with friends on MOLE/Action server and some organized meetups, was the most fun I've ever had in kag. If we manage to get enough people, I'd love to see it make a comeback, which wouldn't be very hard considering that the bot is open-source.

    @UnnamedPlayer I'm glad to read it.
    @killatron46 I think mostly people will back because of gather (4th goal). I can give 1 EU server for gather.

    Sounds like fun. I bet if you organized a weekly scheduled game time, like 6pm your time or something, and kept to it each week, people would come and play for a few hours then. You could still play throughout the week but you'd have that time to fall back on. It'd also be helpful for encouraging newcomers to play at a certain time.

    We could try a time of day, I just didn't want to do that at the start because you can't set a time without excluding a group of players. Now that I think about this, why not set three times? Peak hours for the US, EU and AUS.

    8PM in the respective timezones.
    (Sunday GMT 23:00) US peak
    (Sunday GMT 18:00) EU peak
    (Sunday GMT 8:00) AUS peak

    Correct me if I'm wrong there.

    Okay so, Classic as actually more alive than I thought when I made this thread, I didn't actually check how many people were playing at all times of day. Usually when I checked it was around 5-15, but now when I check at different times it can peak to around 60 players total.

    This is great! I've been playing classic every day now, mostly on the "[USWEST][32P] GTB: CLASSIC CTF + FF" server hosted by Haste. It has friendly fire but it can be fun after you get used to it; Also, GTB stands for Get The Bacon.

    I'll see you all there on Sunday, but if you care to join me any other day I'll be around!

    The friendly fire can be a tad annoying at first, but once you adapt yourself to all ammo (bombs, arrows, cata fodder) being lethal then youre pretty much good.
    Glad to see more people want to see classic live and breath and be healthy again.
