    is it just me or has server activity gone down

    it seems that server activity has gone down drastically. TDM's are slow, betrayal has 1 person total. i didn't check greed today, and deathmatch is doing ok. but when the titan patch came out, it seems like way more people were online. personally im a TDM kind of guy, so i dont like it when its slow, and i dont feel like fighting bots.

    what do you guys think?

    There was a free Steam UT3 weekend last weekend. Anyone who wanted to was able to DL UT3 and play. Now it's over. There will be another one next week though! Hopefully some of them will spend the $12 and buy the game.

            It's pretty late/early for almost every body so at this time you'll notice the player numbers are at their lowest. Try again at peak time.

                            xfire shows a graph of UT3 xfire player stats

                            http://www.xfire.com/games/ut3/Unreal_Tournament_3/

                            There was a big increase for the free weekend, but it's ramping back down now. This only shows xfire users who play ut3 while xfire is running. Players without xfire or who are not running it while playing do not show up. Hint, install and run xfire always before playing UT3 so you can be part of and increase the stats.

                            Both North America and Euro servers are busy in the evenings. Thing is, you need to take into account time zones. The EU servers locations are 5-8 hours ahead of NA times. So when it's 9 pm in Paris, it's only 3 pm in New York.

                              I'm thinking that spike stems not from the free weekend but from the release of patch 2.0 and the Titan pack. The download links were officially posted at 5:08 central time on March 5th and it makes sense from most people wouldn't get the patch until late March 5th or March 6th.
