I recall I had problems getting registered and I believe you had to help me out.

But that was at least in beta if not before.

No, I don't believe an site issues have had anything to do with the drop off.


What it may be is that because PSU was the first site it has the the users are those that started playing first and so were the ones that stopped playing first, proportionally speaking.

New players tend to go straight to the official forums first, which would be natural and then to reddit which would be unnatural.

Re: Wow. This place really died, eh?


I remember back in early 2011 when the first photos of PS: next came, and the following 2 years of discussing, speculating and digging for more info about the game. That was absolutely amazing, to see the crowd here increase, even so much that it became laggy (which in this case was a good thing, it meant that people were getting their eyes up for the game) I used to check here several times a day just to read any new post or new thread.
Now I have somehow lost touch with the game (mostly because my computer is growing too old to handle it and it gets frustrating) and unfortunantley that has brought with it that I check in here more seldom, which is a shame.
I still hold it as one of my favourite websites though and it has the one of the best spots on my "favourite bar" (yes I use I.E :P )

dont really know why I wrote all this nostalgia, it just came when I read through the thread. Keep up the good work Hamma, this site has given me many good times! this feels like a real website, not just a wall of words like reddit!

Re: Wow. This place really died, eh?


Well , i really do hope that the ps4 launch an wintertime will bring new players/older ones back here.

I appreciate Hamas work very much.

So much information here which helps me a lot (still) learning the game after nearly two years.

And mostly its more friendly here than on the official forum...

Keep up the good work...

Re: Wow. This place really died, eh?


With so many high profile devs leaving, declining population, and the snails pace of important content, sadly, this leaves me not wanting to make any further investment in this game. I've put a lot of money in, and it looks like I should cut my losses. Its like stock trading. The future outlook isn't good and there is no track record that gives me comfort. Unfortunately, this means that I don't put more money in so I'm not helping to correct the problem. I'll keep playing planetside, but I'm cutting my losses and hedging my bets at this point.

Is population declining? I invested may be 100+ Euros in 2 years. It is more then I invest in any other games. I play only few hours a week nowadays but on weekends there are always a lot of heavy fights on Miller. So I do not see declining population yet.

Re: Wow. This place really died, eh?


the graphs say so ... or some interpret it that way....

In the official Forums there still is much traffic...

i will stay, there is no other game around that interests me that much.

I'm not leaving the game. I'm just putting a hold on any more financial investment, and I am what the free to play industry refers to as a "whale."

I'm waiting for the cloaking bubble for the Sunderer to spice up tactics for an otherwise bland camp the spawn game.

PS1 mines, PS1 spitfires, PS1 motion detectors would be nice too.



..........unimaginative you.

Doesn't help that most people here wanted CoD/BF2/3 on steroids. Maybe SOE will learn and pull a reverse NGE? Haha. That was a joke. Fat chance.

As for me, I finally learned how to win and found better games that require a level of skill, thought and planning.

I really never sensed that here other than a couple of players..


Its partly Reddit and partly just less people playing leading to a negative feed back loop.

Im guessing that more than a few players are like me and are waiting for the PS4 version in hopes that it has a bigger population.

lolllllll

PS4 having a bigger population? Yeah, sure, maybe for a year til PS5 or whatever comes out and PS2 either doesn't follow it or loses all of its players.
