The server and forums have been quiet now for quite some time.

This place used to thriving and populated. Not all times.... but there im sure ppl miss those times when it WAS.


So let me break the ice....


I''m still here.....


How are you.... ?


What do we need to do to make this more lively?


Any comment would help, any simple hello will do!

(If this is not getting any comments im gonna persuade you with screenshots and videos that will trigger some memories Razz Razz Razz)

Regards Terraniux

Some veterans still play (I've never seen you play, which times do you play?), but there's massive structural issues:

1. There are no admins anymore, at least they are inactive.
2. Due to lack of maintenance, some servers have been down for almost or longer than a year, which includes the test server. Maps on the test server (including my only one and some of yours) are thus stuck in dev limbo forever.
3. Other servers get new maps on a regular basis, but due to 1. and 2. this is not the case here.
4. Due to a lack of new maps, old players are less motivated.
5. Attracting new Kyles is hard, all the hyperactive smartphone folks have no patience and 1 or 2 deaths are already leading them to quit again. If you have less kyles, you get less veterans and thus less people who carry the kyles or can at least kill a pupae that would otherwise kill the kyle on sight.
6. There's also a lack of moderation, only EW is still around and can't be on 24/7 after all, thus giving lots of free space to certain people.

Good points, thanks for sharing your input.

I mostly play evenings in weekends but after an hour of playing alone its not worth it....

I hope more people will respond to this topic. Let's wait.....

The main reaason  why i don't stay for hours is when the server is  empty or boring maps.
i disklike when the monster is  too powerfull when i play allone that take too many time to end a maps  in this c
condition.

IIn the next month i will  play only on the week-end because i want to spand me time for someting  important for my futur.

but if  i see  people on your server and MHA is empty   i will come with plesure.

we experience the same thing even tho we have 1058 maps and latest update, I believe the game is slowly dying  over all and the ones with top quality and care about the players needs will stand left..

Hiho  Smile
As much as it saddens me, there seems to be no way of changing how the things are now. There is of course the issue (already brought up) of lack of interest in the server from the admins. I am sure they have their reasons but that doesn't change that the server feels abandoned by them. However, truth be told UT has been dying for last few years and so has dU. Players have changed, gaming world too. I imagine many of us (UT/dU enjoyers) have either other current priorities in our lives or simply moved on... to greener pastures. Nowadays there are just too many good alternatives.
That being said, I must admit I have some fond memories of time spent here, having fun with people. I miss some of you guys and wish you all the best  Very Happy1

I loved this server, and community.

I loved it when it was |BAH| - Buculae Admirandi Honoris - the first gaming clan I was a part of; even if I didn't wear the full clan colours in combat, I was there. Catze (MagicCat) invited me to tag along. Still have her email address, although it's defunct now.

BAH was my first real online community. Even though it's gone, and almost all the users who kept in touch faded or drifted away, that memory can never be taken away from me. I will never forget BAH.

.dU was a bit rockier. Some people in .dU didn't like me, presumably because of my age. But I stuck with it for a time. I had some fun. The site's banner - I made that in Photoshop years and years ago.

I simply don't have the time for UT online any more. The old days were fun, but sometimes that's where they should stay, in the old days, as good memories.

I remember the scanlines being a popular design choice for gaming websites in around 2006. Photoshop CS2 tutorials was everywhere. Nice throwback, reading your comment  :thumb: Lets hope the server and site stays up for ever. Its a nice throwback seeing these old forums stil up and running.

I still check in from time to time on the server. Its a shame its not maintained on gametracker and country flags are stil broken for over 2 years.

The mismanagement, learning curve and angry rigid people scared fun good players and newbies away. As Piro would say: UT all have fun

Have fun and try to understand people have different skills and understanding of the game. It will go a long way for a welcoming and fun server  Cool
