    It's ironic that this subject has to be "continued" so many times. How many years will we have to discuss how this game is dying before we realize... we've been playing it for years!

        This has got to be a joke, right? Looks way to much like a borrowed idea from the BWP...

        Edit: I see it was made in 1980? Looks like BWP plagerised the idea quite extensively, lol.

          It has to be continued because people with the ability to close threads are also the same people who do not believe/choose to dismiss/supress UT2k4's online playing number's are in decline. Gamespy is reporting UT2k4 has less that 2.5k players and is in 8th (compaired to Q3 with just over 3k in 6th, or Halo 2 on XBOXLive with about 10k stats (although their stats are currently down)). I cannot find 'historical' stats as yet... but I still seek them...

          We have been discussing in more detail the subjects as the 'pro' community dropoff, the clan player and clan activity dropoff, and the new players/n00b lack of adoption/dropoff.

          There are (if I recall) 3 prongs to this statement:

          1. Pro players leaving for other games where there is money. UT2k4 failing to make it as a game for money making competitions (but the lieks of Doom3, painkiller and Quake are making it).
          2. Clanners and clans closing down, ladders with decreasing/failing activity. Clans that have been 'involved in UT for years' suddenly idling.
          3. No-one 'new' buying the game, and casual players who DID buy the game no longer playing it (for whatever reason be it the game is no good, through to new games taking their interest).

          A forth argument stems from the lack (or abundance) of the modding scene.

          The counter argument seems to be.

          No it's not, I can always get a game.
          You have no stats to PROVE this (and the stats include bots).
          *I* still play it and I love it and you don't so you're a lier or something.
          No-one will leave UT2k4 (until Q4 comes out anyway).

          I think that's about right...
