Ha, there are more people in the forums than playing ns.
Re: Ha, there are more people in the forums than playing ns.
Well, Tactical Gamer hosts many games. Many of the people you see in the forums do not play NS at all.
Also, NS just doesn't thrive until you get at least 10 people. For this reason, people aren't so quick to just idle in the server and wait for people, as it's boring as hell... we just know when we play and when we don't.
We play during the evening hours and that's about it. Afternoon activity happens, but you can pretty much count on the server being active from around dinnertime until around midnight or 1AM.
Anything past that and activity is rare and great games are even rarer.
This community caters to adults, so many of its regulars have academic or professional careers that keep them off the servers during the day and late, late at night.
Darkilla: In short, NS is pretty much really fast chess. With guns. Apophis: I haven't seen anyone say that SM's are better than non-SMs. Nordbomber: This is THE first server I've seen where either side can comeback from out of seemingly nowhere with the right teamwork. en4rcment: I have NEVER experienced the type of gameplay that I have found here. Nightly I am amazed at the personalities and gaming talent. Zephyr: Apophis is clearly a highly sophisticated self-aware AI construct that runs on a highly modified toaster oven in Wyzcrak's basement.
