The El clan hardly plays anymore and it seems the posting is getting just as rare from the El clan or anyone.The El guys,,,,Being {imho}prob the very first clan for wildwest and the most avid it has to make you scared when the post count is next to nil and the playing time is just as rare.I sencerly hope 1.6 is bug free soon.This is getting more than a little scary.I joined the El clan becuase they were always there.I always seen them play in numbers.The last month i havnt seen any El tags cept for Minirose or miniskins.Scary scary indeed.Tis the beginning of the end i think.

And now I go off on a tangent:

I have noticed as well that the el guys are almost never playing (the ones I’ve seen have been on the test server though, so that’s still something). Even if the ones that haven’t been around as much don't come back to the game I really don't think it speaks the end for WW, there have been so many new people the last few weeks and the servers are actually filling up during the day again. Even though people always seem to disappear into the oblivion for one reason or another someone else will try the mod and fall in love with it just like we did.

Once I played this game this game a few years back (there were 2 or 3 maps then, not sure which version it was) I was amazed by it but I started having less time for games and eventually stopped playing video games altogether. But a few months back I saw my copy of RTCW sitting there and decided to waste my free time in a quality fashion and grabbed wild west again and it was better than ever and improved in every way (I know some people quibble about the changes made from the version I remember first playing to the current but I really think every change they've made makes the game overall better). And those new maps, WOW! This game made me start playing games again and I’m ever grateful for it.

If the changes and quality of the past versions of WW are any sign of what 1.6 will offer I know I’ll be playing for as long as I can. I really think the care put into it and just pure fun this game has easily exceeds any commercial multiplayer games I’ve ever played. If you look at the RTCW servers and see how the number of players has decreased drastically but WW, even though it never had the player base of RTCW, has decreased by a much smaller percentage of players. I really think this is because once people try this mod they see how different it is than anything else out there and they just get hooked. I had two friends over a few weeks back and after they both played the game once they both went out and bought RTCW just so they can play it.

This game has a level of fairness nothing else can touch, we can do without those people that just want mega fast gameplay with super powerful weapons that spray 1000 bullets a second or shoot some ungodly death orb that takes out an entire team. Sure we’ll never have the number of players of other games even though it does cater (and has in the past with the revisions made) to newer players but this does not take away from that dead sexy wild west action by throwing in the idiotic gameplay “improvements” other games may make. I think there will always be people looking for an alternative to the typical FPS spray and pray types and this is it.

Long live Wild West!

SQUINTit has to make you scared when the post count is next to nil and the playing time is just as rare.

bare in mind also that this is vacation time for many, and for the rest of the unlucky souls, there are things to be done in and around the house/yard. add to that any events that might be happening in your local area, that you and/or your family want to go to, and the results are: less game time on the computer.

i don't have a whole lot of free time, and although this was a long weekend for me, i had zero free time to get on the computer for any length of time! (i sacrificed goin to bed early last night to see who were in the servers...and ended up playin till 11:30ish. --had tons of fun tho!!!)

to be honest i do still live and breath wild west but have got tired of being dropped from our own server never mind the others ,,,yes i do agree its getting thin now but with all honesty hewster is typing his ass for what ,,,the best mod on the planet or fixing shit pb through at him

well this mod is hindered by the crap packet loss wtg pb guys i have no doubt in my mind that things will be sorted ,(to much time and money invested for us to let this go on the way it has but what do we do )

we all tied at the hips we need the mod and the wild west needs the players for this mod to make it out of the deep ,its a pitty the dev team is limited to who can do what but what ever they are doing or who is doing what hopefully pb gets its arse in gear and gives em a hand cos gamebuster oops i mean punk is holding this fine mod down (ps all, i know hewster is working while i type ,coding his own type of pb so hopefully we will rise and smash all the other so called western mods back to were they came from )

@ squint hi bro i seen you playing amigo but was using blazzin-bongs as my name and i just missed ya on ts but i will catch you :beer: time to post time to play see ya in g2xs (uk time 12 25 ) so move it now cya in there ps i live at el drab

Keep your heads up fellows! This is not the beginning of the end, merely the beginning of the beginning! You just wait - when Queeg's announcement list gets deployed we will have a flood of new players. I was shocked at the number of old versions that were referenced when I did my little part of scouting - I'm sure it will be great once everyone gets clued in.

One day you will be able to tell your grandkids "I was there when WildWest hit the ground runnin, yesiree. No Jimmy, we didn't have anti-grav mice back then, they were optical. Some of us even still used rolling mice."

:)

BTW Crabs, awesome picture in your sig! What is that from?

Hi Squint - I was on last night with rebel and there was a good number of people playing. Half of them seemed new. I had a blast and we had some real good games. Even Iggy was there sniping people!

people are just waiting for new patch . thats it ,and they dont like being kicked almost every round thats why i dont play as much as i realy want to .

but when (whenever that is) the new patch comes out and the pb prob solved i think there will be more players then before. and we can kill eachother as much as we want to . and the new players that arecoming to play,well ive been reading other forum

and all kind s of people have posted that the new patch is comming out soon and that people should go and have a look and its working apperantly

but yes i do agree that the pb prob should be solved soon people that come and play for the first time will soon lose interest if nobody is there to kill/stab/burn
