I just took this screenshot after launching MB2 about 5 mins ago, after that I closed the game. Just a month ago, I could get on at any given time, on any day and there would be AT LEAST 2 full NA servers. Yes, even at 4AM in the morning on a Sunday there would be 2 populated NA servers. At peak times, there would be anywhere between 3-6 populated NA servers. I've noticed in the last few weeks that player activity has plummeted significantly. My question is what are devs doing to retain players? Because these numbers are NOT good. I don't care if you think this game is niche and it takes a certain person to like it or if you think it's old and that's the way it goes, because there has to be an explanation as to why this game has like a 10% player retention rate. Perhaps it is the big learning curve, maybe it's the Jedi/skill stack that plagues every server, or maybe it's the fact that the most populated NA server is a haven for Alt-Right trolls? I honestly don't know. There was a huge spike in popularity, especially after that video that dude made, and now it's a ghost town. I think devs made the wrong moves with these patch rollouts they did in the last few months (have they even had any new patches?). They missed their window of opportunity to hook players by revamping the gameplay to be more straightforward/balanced and drove away veteran players by replacing the most popular map the mod has ever seen. I know it's *your* game and you have a certain vision for it that you want to bring to fruition, but damn, I'm starting to be convinced that you guys are making a collective effort to kill the game so you can just be done with it and move on with your lives. I don't remember the exact details as to why you guys didn't want to go open sourced, even after the guy that designed the fucking base game came on here and called you guys fools for not wanting to go open source, and multiple people (including him) listed nothing but good things that can come out of it, but you guys adamantly refused. After that point, I pretty much believe that you guys are going down a path that you can't turn back from. A dark path filled with anger and pure evil.
