A game can't die while still on the Top 20 bestsellers list.

A game has been out six months, gets great reviews and high sales, ahd has a decent mod community, and you say its dead?

Seems to me like a lot of you guys are in denial about it. Heck, Aliens Vs Predator 2 forums are more active than this and that game has been around 6 months longer than JK2.
Yeah, I guess AvP2 is so much more successful, oh wait, AvP2 had a recent expansion pack released. Well when JK2 gets its expansion, then we'll talk about the AvP2 forums. ; )

Incidentally, the Doom community is still thriving.. due in large part to the release of the sources... several years after Doom/2 were totally obsolete technologically. They even re-released the games in stores (probably to hype up Doom3, but still).

If people want to believe the game is dead, fine... move along. Let the rest of us enjoy it while we can. The game isn't dead for the rest of us who are still playing and making mods!

agreed, I don't even think the AvP II comunity is dead, Primal Hunt isn't bad, but thats OT) JKII:JO is doing just fine, sales for the game have and still are very good. Personaly I think an Xpack is being worked on, maybe even JKIII

The number of players has certainly dropped off, but I think its just that the kids are back at school now. The hard core of the JK2 community still seems to be going strong and the 'fad' gamers have moved on. I have definitely noticed that there are less kidds playing this game which is never a bad thing LOL

And indeed, why are they here whinging if they don't like it? Why don't they just go away? A very good question mate.

The answer lies- I believe- in understanding the psychology behind their posts. A "JO is dying" whinger may be one of three types of people:
[list=1][*]A person who really enjoys JO but can't get a game very often,[*]A person who played JO for a short time and then got bored,[*]A troll.[/list=1]

I really have a lot of sympathy for the first type, the bloke who can't get a game. There was that fellow from Hawaii, I think his name was Hiteche... Yeah, poor guy couldn't find a game with a decent ping. The best he could do was a 200ms lag affair on the Zone, so I have nothing but sympathy for him and his ilk. But the number of people who genuinely can't find a game is tiny, as there's ALWAYS a server running somewhere, and most people get decent pings on the zone too. JO's far from dead, it's just a shame you guys live in the middle of nowhere and can't get a game.

The second type is more common: A bloke who is now "bored" of JO and just has to tell everyone about how bored they are of JO, how boring JO is because it bores them, etcetera, etcetera. My message to them: We're bored of you. If JO bores you just go the heck away and take your uninteresting tirades on boredom, with you.

The last type is also common. Geezus is a prime example. "UT2K3 R BETTAR THAN JK2 J00 MOROSN!!!11" I think the only message trolls understand is repeated banning.

So there we have it, the vast majority of people who claim JO is dying either have no interest in JO at all, are merely in flapping their own gums, like hearing the sound of their own typing, or are trolling for reactions. So ignore them!

Yep, that would be me. Now for the record. I just want to say is that for some people "die" has different definitions. I think the game is starting to weed out those who just wanted to see some Star Wars game. The servers are starting to trim down and some people take that as the game is dying.

I know for a fact that the mod community is still active. I just would like to see more servers in my area. Or people join the "PC Bang" server ( I will have to look up the IP for posting) This server I pour some money into but no one seems to play on it. Some one tell me...is the ping to high? Settings? Give me a ring and I'll change it.

BTW, Wookie Beer party is up again. Jump on that too. I hope to see you guys around.

Thumbs up

JK1 might be dead, but mods are still coming out for it, and some people are still playing it (perhaps revived due to the release of JK2, after all, the collector's editing came packed with a copy), but compared to JK2, JK2 is definately thriving.
