    True. Problem is all this has become a vicious circle; you log on, see that it's empty, no traders, no pvp, silence, log out. Population increases on major content patches and occasional events.

    Hell, I have an account and I don't play. An issue that has always plagued Neocron is marketing. It's all well and good telling your friends, but we need strangers and we need official marketing. We need an official modern trailer showing old school Deus Ex style gaming as an MMO and it's actually free! No loot boxes and freemium shit!

    Because of lack of large updates and no real marketing the enemy camp that is neocron classic will steal everyone

    The other project promised the sun, the moon and the stars. Turns out they couldn't deliver it all so quickly, and that forum is now as dead (if not more so) as this one.

    Got more people in beta plaza 1 than we do.

    They had more people in plaza 1 a year ago and....?


    Their forums and dead and playerbase are dead, just like here. So using them as an example for what to do is rather silly!

    I'm not saying we should follow what they do. I'm merely saying that they have a good portion of the old vets. Another problem is we need new blood. Everyone who played Neocron in it's prime is now in their 30's or older and has social responsibilities. We need young new players as well.

    If you type Neocron into YouTube it's grim. Get videos from the classic camp or ones saying Neocron is dead. We need some serious PR and marketing.

    No, they don't. As I've pointed out two times and you've ignored both times.

    They have nothing because they overpromised, under-delivered and the 'returned' vets left to never be seen again. Can you point out any more recent evidence that the other project has 'stolen' players? Because both the forums and game are completely dead, and a video from a year ago is ... from a year ago, which I would have thought was obvious.

    There is no point in actively trying to entice players to play an unfinished project with no eta on when it will be close to 'done'. All it will result is in disenchanted and disillusioned players who will never give NC another chance.

    I honestly thought the servers were shut down years ago. I was just googling tonight to see if anyone had videos or screenshots for nostalgia. I'm going to hop back on this weekend if I get a chance. OLD No.7 BrAnD was right. I'm pushing 40 and don't have a lot of time to dedicate to gaming, but this was my first, and easily favorite MMO of all time. I'd love to see a big playerbase again.

    Welcome back, I'm glad you've found us. We're on Twitter and Facebook as Official Neocron if you'd like to hit the links in my signature, that way if you don't have time to drop by all the time, we'll pop up in your feeds with news and information when it arrives.

    You've picked a pretty good time to pop in too, as although populations are low, the team have entered 2018 with an energy I've not felt for a quite some time now. As a result we've got some nice changes cooking away behind the scenes.
