  • Does anyone still play AS?

    I recently bought the Unreal Deal pack on steam mostly because I wanted to play ut2k4 again, and then I remembered AS, so I was wondering, does anyone still play AS and are there any servers up nowadays?

    There are a few servers up, but it's extremely rare to find anyone playing. AS had a very small playerbase, and most of it got sucked into L4D.

      That's not true... I see very few people playing L4D these days. I think it has pretty much run its course until Valve throws some new content in.
      It's not my fault everything you like is terrible.

        Actually, lots of people play L4D, if you look at the serverbrowser (openserverbrowser in console), you'll see that most of the servers will probably be full, at least that's what it looks like for me.

          You could try to gather some Swarmers for a game using this thread. I'd be up for one.

            when I want to play AS I lock into Steam and message wanted players :-) That works like a charm.

              I don't keep Steam running...for reasons.

              Gtalk works, tho; see if you can guess the address.

                I'm going by my friends list, which includes a fair chunk of people who would be playing Swarm... There hasn't been more than 3 or 4 people playing at any one time recently, whereas there used to be much much more activity.

                  Funny, you could say the exact same for swarm...

                  Hmm, not that funny when you think about it.

                      The only one I ever see on is oerbie. What time, if you recall, do these folks usually play?

                        Hm, I'd be willing to try and get a group together, but the problem is, I looked at the server listings and I won't ping any lower than 200 on any of them so idk if I'll be that useful, unless there's some US servers.
