SS had a comment in the AW subreddit I found... amazing.  He states there are thousands of active PvE players on the NA server (which is believable because for a recent event they had something like 800 players achieved the PvE requirements), they're paying customers (paying for what I wonder?), and that PvP (I'm guessing he's including GO games in this figure) accounts for just half a percent of all matches on the NA server.

 

I'm just... shocked at those numbers.  AW PvE was some of the most brainless gaming I've come across in years and the number and variability of missions is basically nonexistent.  That that many folks are willing to keep at it and spend money is just hard for me to comprehend.  I guess seeing pixel tanks on screen, regardless of what you're doing with them, is all that matters to some folks?  :blink:

 

Edit: The underlying point to this is that if they're able to keep the game going with the joke that is their current PvE model I have little hope they'll improve or drastically alter it to something more engaging.  That coupled to how slow they are in changing broken aspects of the core gameplay in PvP means there's little hope of this title ever not sucking (which was always low to begin with).  I keep holding out hope, but... there's really no reason to.

Thought I'd dig this up since they just sent me an email touting some kind of new game play.  I didn't read it but wondered has anyone played this train wreck recently?

Haven't touched it in ages.  Randomly decided to visit the subreddit a few months back and was shocked to see the game was still going.  Went and looked again just now.  Apparently they've merged the servers since pop was so bad in NA and EU.  Those players still report not being able to find games, though.  Ugh... would hate to deal with the lag in a game like this at those distances (NA, that is).

I figured they must be desperate since the only interaction I ever had with the game was applying for alpha/beta and downloading the client.
