Man I was on the other night at 10pm pacific time, and there was 109 people on. Wow!!! Every week this game is losing people, AND I MAKES ME MAD cause to me, this is probably the most fun FPS game out there. Now I didnt say the best graphics, cause I know alot of you will say "BUT HALO2 AND HF2 R BETTER!!1" Sure they are good FPS's but they just dont have the feeling of JKA. Not everygame you get to use lightsabers and force powers in real time, not like all the other StarWars RPG games. I love this game. I have WoW, and UT2004 and tried to find other games to stop playing this, but none can match. The only thing this game is missing is more people. THIS GAME IS DYING OR IS PRETTY MUCH DEAD AND I HATE IT I HATE IT I HATE IT!!! WHO ELSE FEELS THIS WAY ABOUT JKA?!

What did you expect would happen when untold numbers of players were humiliated, "amslapped", "amslayed", and "ampunished" when they went to Jedi Academy "FFA" servers? Many of us have been warning about this ever since JA+ mod came out (JA+ being by far the most commonly used mod that has abusive commands).

How many other games became successful by actively driving people out of their servers? The answer: none. slider finally came to his senses and removed a couple of the worst commands (amslay and ampunish) from the latest version of JA+, but it was too little, too late to undue all of the damage that had been done and save the game.

Meanwhile, games about the same age as JA (Call of Duty) or much older than JA (Quake III) have way more servers and players. Duh, do you think it just might be because those games don't actively drive players away? :rolleyes:

Many gamers are like "STAR WARS AHHH" they don't play because it is star wars. It doesn't have a gaming rep like Call of Duty or Halo has.

Indeed. Comparing Jedi Acadmey to Call of Duty or Halo is like comparing people to diatoms.

Well first off, im sure its not that it's StarWars that makes people not want to play it. Didn't KOTOR and SWG get alot of people (still)? It was the harsh commands that admins use that scared away all the players. Guess people were tired of being punished from breaking the "no laming" rule (and i wont turn this into another giant thread on laming). Oh and I guess you just dont like this game as much as I do, Twig. I get tired of shooting games, where JKA makes you feel like a jedi, sorta. Its not like every other FPS. First off, the game doesnt go in rounds (except CTF/Duel/Siege, im just talking about FFA, which is all I play) and theres no real objective, even tho its a FPS. Your mainly there to beat down on other people, and you (I) could care less about score. Theres points where you wanna have fun with exploring maps while when other times you wanna just kill everything. I dont know, this game is just, fun. I mean when I played halo, I never cared or remembered about what happend a year ago, but with JKA, you remember having good times with the JKA community. I remember how newby I use to be a year and a half ago when I started this game, and how far iv come, and I remember all the good times I had. Other FPS, like Halo, you dont really get into the community, you just play to win (most of us). Im trying to explain what I mean the best I can, sorry if its hard. Oh and you can find the number of people playing by going into "Search for player" and just press search. At the bottom it will say like 123/125 players found with the name "Bla bla." Thats how many players are on. Anyways, I sure hope they make a JK4 for us hardcore JKA lovers, cause other games get boring :P

The JK series has recently started to become a bit boring for me. I played JKO for awhile, then got JKA for a good change of pace. But all I see is a lot of sabre-only servers (loaded with morons many times, but I won't delve into that), and I much prefer guns. I don't even play JKA now, outside of solo games by myself. I still played JKO for a while (cause all my mates still played it), but now I'm bored with that too. I dunno, for some reason I don't have the same desire to play JK that I used to have...

It may not be Star Wars that drives players away from the game, but if you're not into Star Wars in the first place, there's little incentive to stick with the game for more than a few months...it's not the world's greatest FPS and the saber and force powers are only a major draw if you're a fan of sword-based gameplay and/or the Star Wars universe. Combine this with the immature and abusive nature of so many JKA players, and the almost complete domination of the MP game by egomaniac admins abusing the older versions of JA+ that will never go away, and you have a game that is not appealing for either beginners, who are inevitably bullied and abused by the so-called elite, or hardcore gamers, who simply get bored of the whining and stupidity after a week's worth of playing the game.

Hey don't get me wrong I like to play this game. I'm always playing it. I just much prefer using the guns of the game.
