Well I resubscribed several weeks ago; I saw the $9.99 for new accounts(but couldn't reactivate my old account for that price) and decided to start playing again.
I guess the bottom line is that the company doesn't have anyone left who actually knows how to work on the code of the game.
-Game statistics no longer work, and to fix them they'll have to subcontract or something
-Multicrewing(two people in the same vehicle) is still broken and they don't know when it's going to be fixed. It's actually an exploit that's becoming a problem as players use the heavy lag to their advantage.
-Any new content is on permanent hiatus until they get a coder, and everyone is just supposed to upgrade their subscription so CRS can afford to hire someone
There's still a small remnant of the community, and a few good players left but it's very difficult to find a battle larger than 50 people. The last really big battle I participated in there was almost a two minute wait time before you were allowed to spawn(something they're not going change either). CRS is pushing a big community advertising effort but everything players suggest is shot down as not possible/too much work involved. It's apparently beyond the developers to spend some time making a few new videos and post them on youtube...
I don't know if anyone on mmorpg donated to this game but just FYI I tried asking in their forums about CRS's other project(the one they had the failed kickstarter for), Rapid Assault, and over several days I received some non-answers from a few players but no actual response from CRS. The beta servers are down so if you get an error when trying to log on it's not your computer/client at fault.
In light of their previous history I guess it was bad business sense to pay $30 and support the project, and there are probably a few old veterans saying "I told you so" but it's still disappointing.
