Servers are all basically empty?

Post by nightmare318 » 07 Oct 2011, 07:17

I just wanted to know if this is right. I just came from trackmania NF, loved that so bought this. The servers there always had plenty of players, now when i play there is only ever one server with players in it. and it only has like 4 players? Ive tried at all times. Do a lot of people actually play this?

Yes,many people play this,but when its 8 AM in the morning in europe,you cant expect millions of players :D
Anyways,it is always much more then that,so I guess you overlooked something.There is 900 players online at the moment.

Maybe:
-The morning, is not the most common hour to play a game.. a lot of people goes to work, to school or still sleep.
-Maybe you went to search for a server under the "suggested servers"?
-If you look at the main page of the wolrld, server list, you can see a lot of pages, try to go ahead with the pages, often, there are servers with a lot of people (don't ask me why xD)
-TM Canyon registered players: ~50'000
-TMNF registeres players: ~9'000'000

You are right, there are around 70 pages of servers in the list, maybe the first 10 pages have servers with players. So 60 pages of empty servers!
and that's even when there are a lot of players.
I was hosting a server until recently, figured out it was just a waste of my server's resources. It was almost always empty. That's sad.

Just remember to select world as server area and you will find a lot of servers with many players on them. You might have to go through a few pages though if they arent in your ranking range (servers are sorted by average rank relative to yours before amount of players). There are usually about 6 servers with 30+ people on them and a lot more with around 10 players.

Many servers are empty because they are clanservers used for wars/leagues or for freestyle/trial.

Of course you can not expect the same numbers of players as in TMN since this game is still pretty new and it is not free (the main reason why there are so many players in TMN!)

Lol Keras you explain me this like i was a newby.
I'm just the oldest player in TM :)
Is not this the question, the question is 50% of 14th September players feel that tracks are always the same, cause blocks number is low.
Stadium was ok cause it have the prefect pieces, is strange Nadeo didn't started from Stadium.
Those are my opinions, eh, now i don't mind anymore if my server is empty.
Just only a "remember the good time"... but this game is over, born death.
I hope on shootmania, but, as i read will go as TM2.

Sorry if i feel catastrofic, but, till now i never been wrong.
If i start to see 200000 players / day connected, i go on my knees to France and back! :D

If you think I was talking to you you probably are a newby :p
Imo you are making this thread into something it isnt. It is not about the blocks or the tracks its just about the servers which the OP thought are empty and what I told him was the common solution for that problem. No one told him before that he has to change the server area or may have to go through a few pages to find the full servers since they are not in his ranking range.
That system is kind of bad, it should always start with World as area and sort servers by player quantity regardless of rank. Then this problem would not occur and we would not be discussing this :roflol:

Maybe a good solution is the server with more planets stay on top. :D
