I wanted to ask why the servers are allway this empty? Celestial Impact is a great game but nobody seems to be using it. Do u anything like bringing Ci on the Publicity? I only found it because of an article in a game magazine and never heard of it before.

People are unlikely to play if they only see deserted servers , that's a vicious circle. That said , I guess I am partly to blame for emptying servers due to excess fragging Razz

We haven't gone all that aggressive on spreading the game. Initially we sent out a press release to a couple of game sites for the 1.0 version. Then with the later versions we sent to some more sites and it started to spread some by itself.

Unfortunately, as Stakhanov accurately pointed out, the main problem is that noone joins a server to play because not many people are on, which causes the servers to have few players and so it goes on.

I think we've had a peak at 60 players beeing on the CI servers at the same time, but it really goes in waves. Sometimes lots of people are playing, some times none. We encourage people to share the game with their friends or maybe post a message about it on some board they are visiting.

True, when I launch CI, I quit just after saw the server empty...
Maybe we should join, then wait.

Last time I found someone to play with was the game dev, and it was about 5 mounth ago...

Exposure has always been a problem for us since we do not have time to seek it ourselves. We are mainly depending on word-by-mouth spreading which is something that obviously takes time Smile

i suggest that some bot should be added to server so that people will be more willing to join the game and wait for other player to come Wink

Well i think its a great game!!! älskar sverige!!!!!!!!! Very Happy
but pls be aggressive on spreading it!!!!
imean why not?
and a tip: set up some competitons (tävlingar) so that peoples who like to play it have 1 specific day(time) so its (pretty good chance that u meet someboddy Very Happy ) + set up on the site: so the members can make like Cups and things like that. (becouse as i said (1 specific day) its bigger chance 2 meet somebody!!!!!

This game is 2 good to be unkown!!!!!!! Very Happy
