    Nope, the 2 servers are empty, I was alone on Eu and US server. saw another player 1 time on EU server, no more. I'm looking now for an alternative to The repopulation. It's the same on SOTA, dead games, empty servers, nobody noone, nothing. I payed for dead games.

    I'll be back in Repop as soon as the upcoming full wipe is done.

    I wouldn't recommend joining the game at this point, most people that were active stopped playing months ago when the wipe was announced.

    hmm... Most people  (99,99%) stopped playing years ago when the devs stopped it for a survival game, and never came back.

    The new owners (devs of Hero Engine) are going through the whole game apparently, fixing bugs, trying to fix the world seam problems, redoing textures etc. And supposedly untangling spaghetti code and weird engine hacks.

    Anyway, if they plan to do this thoroughly before actually working on the game's mechanics, who knows how long this will take. They don't seem to be in a hurry to get new players anyway. As if they want to get the basics right before starting marketing again.

    I have no idea what to expect from this new team, but so far their communication is very open. Their approach can be read in detail. Which makes me wonder if this is just a project to test their engine on. But atm, don't expect any big new content patches or overhauls.

    I logged in months ago and just logged in today.  I think it said I was in a training instance which would be why I didn't see any other players.  Game runs smother than the last time I played.  Some quest givers are voiced but most are not.  Easy to follow the arrows to do the quests, last time I was completely lost.  Basic getting to know the game questing at this point.  Haven't gotten pass basic training yet.

    I would say slow improvements.  Looks just like an early development that reminds me a little of SWG.  OK, music.

    As everyone can see, on all servers we don't have enough players for ONE guild. Average players november = not even 7 players for the MONTH.  At the end of SWG, we could met more players on the cantina in MO than on EU + US servers. Why ? because of stop and go, new direction taken by the devs (we payed for a "new swg like" not for a  survival game) + fact actual devs takes enormous time to code the patch + the game looks old + old area was much better. When you arrive on the city, if you can pass the beggining you're simply alone with mobs. Alone.

    Tbh, if it hadn't been for the arrival of patch 15.10.1 in the last 30 days, those daily player numbers would probably have been down to zero by now, lol

    The new team have big plans though, so we'll see how it all takes shape in 2018. The game world is being rebuilt from scratch, which is obviously not going to happen overnight...

    It is much appreciated as you have been very vocal about the positive and negative and it has been a great help! I appreciate it greatly... As well as everyone else that has helped us along the way with feedback.

    As far as what we can do, all we can do is our best. Hopefully this holiday has been an overall good one for the Repop community. Granted we do not have hundreds on line, but we have been hitting a total of between 40-60 on average (both steam and stand alone). So that is encouraging. I hope that the feedback continues and we (devs and community) can help shape the game that most of you want to play again.

    Do note that Steam does not register those that are on stand alone version (non steam) but all do play on the same server together.

    Happy Holidays to everyone around the world, no matter where you may be.

    It's certainly a complex and unique game in the current field.  Good luck to you guys, I certainly hope you can guys can turn the project around and attract a solid playerbase in the near future!

    Thank you MadFrenchie! It is much appreciated, we will do our best and see what happens. And aye, it is quite a complex game.

    I do welcome anyone to stop on by and visit the forums. We try to keep everyone updated. Also have Discord that many are active on. All are welcome!

    Peace!

    The new dev team applied a hotfix for a post-patch bug on Sunday, which was also the day before Xmas !

    Now THAT should be an indication of how committed they are. It's alpha after all, not even a launched game...

    Repop has a long way to go, but I'm beginning to believe that it WILL get there. The next 12 months will be very interesting.

    1 server 34 players ...  (I was one of the 34 playe rs online 5 mins ago.)
    Ok so I'd better come back to TESO. Good luck to devs and last players( Last 33 ones) Game is not bad, its playable but don't know how devs could relaunch it.

    An average of 7 players, wonder how many of those were developers  :o

    This game isn't dead as it never actually 'lived'.
    As far as being the final nail in Hero Engines coffin, honestly, that was several years ago. ;)

    That is a good question Phry,
    Actually none of those are developers. We do not go through Steam so it is not recorded as us being on. This also includes any QA testers on stand alone or in the blade, as Steam only counts those going through Steam itself.

    ;) and Happy Fathers day everyone!

    It was doing well before it shut down. It had a lot of hype actually for a SWG-esque MMO. But after that happened, the shut down pretty much killed it.

    Not impressive, but a lot better than none. :) Sorry, I tend to look at the positive more so than the negative at times.

    Do note that since we purchased the game last year we have not done any marketing yet. We do want to get several things sorted and fixed before then to be fair for all those that purchase the game after. Any hype, I want to keep real.

    I didn't r alize it launched.  Last I remembered, they were changing engines and pushing it back.  I'm kinda confused now if I'm thinking of the right game.

    Concentrate on enjoying yourself, and not on why I shouldn't enjoy myself.
