    Just scroll down a little and see what you find:

    http://www.indiedb.com/games/rated

    So KAG is one of the most top-rated indie games? Hmph, there's something wrong with this picture *cough* player retention *cough*

    Also IndieDB considered it in the genre of "arcade", scrubs.

    Not enough 80% off steams deals, need to have one at least every fortnight.

    Also pushing for it to be in every single humble bundle is pretty important.

    That's because player retention is so low

    Not enough in-depth gamemodes to keep players interested. You can only keg spam your way to victory so many times until things get stale. I would say this game needs a good mod, but as it turns out over half of the player base has never bothered to join a modded server.

    I don't know, maybe I'm wrong about that. Maybe Shiprekt with islands or redstone mod will get people flocking back by the hundreds.

    So the problem is people's systems? Heck, then Minecraft should have small player retention, it was slow as crap on my old laptop, and KAG was fine.

    It's not people's systems, mods for kag, especially aphelions just are very laggy, usually because of the amount of blobs

    Try to play on Aphelion's server for one hour, I'll guarantee you'll rip your eyes out after that.
    It doesn't matter how good PC you got, KAG's modded servers will still lag as hell.

    yes they are, this is serverside lag, which distributes over all clients (though lag on client can accumulate with it, causing ridculous shit)

    So is the issue bad frame rate or high latency? Do you guys have this issue in Shiprekt?

    TBH my client crashes every time I try to join Aphelion's RP

    Low player count is what you get when you crap all over your old players destroying kag classic and making another game with the same name of KAG

    I really agree with this, and that the modded server really lags a lot. Seriously, my computer crash if i get in Aphelion's server. And Kag also has a lot of game modes who can be won always by the same way, like Chrispin said.

    Isn't the default filter system to stop modded servers appearing? If I had to speacially turn off a button to access a server then got a message about how the server was dangerous I would have second thoughts about playing on it. Assuming I ever saw the button.
    I think lag on modded servers is less because they are modded and more have you seen the size of aphelions map? And they might be less optimized than kag since they haven't got a pro coder. That said vanilla kag is a poorly optimised lag fest so its all in relation.

    But yeah, FUN CTF and CTF expanded were very good servers, but suddenly the admins/modders/hosters disappeared from the face of earth and were never seen or heard from again (except for @Tsilliev, that little fegget started playing Rimworld instead :rektlord:)
    Oh and those other fun servers, Shiprekt+ in EU, Bunnyfection... Where the hell did the dissappear too? They were all so fun but suddenly went down...

    I think looking for a mod to keep people around is the wrong solution. Achievements or unlockable heads would do a much better job of improving player retention than some laggy mod that's fun to play for a couple hours.
