Considering that F.E.A.R has been out for over a month and seems to be a fairly popular game, I can't help but wonder why there aren't more people gaming in multiplayer. The limited number of servers out there don't seem to get a lot of traffic. How many of you singleplayers have an interest in multiplayer action? If you don't have any interest in it, how come?
I don't spend enough time here

i agree, i would have expected the interest to be huge, i brought the game mainly for mp , its a bit of a letdown.
From what I can tell, the limited interest in MP is somewhat related to a lot of cheating taking place/and or weaknesses in the game being exploited, such as the health pack issue. Being that no anti-cheat system is currently in place, I think a lot of players are turned off to MP until an AC system is in place. Also, there are only 4-5 maps circulating on most servers and for the most part, people have probably become rather bored with the game in general. Unless they implement the AC system and develop some new maps/mods for the game, FEAR will probably become an after-thought, which would be disappointing.
