death of c-rpg?(maybe a slow death)

I dont know the numbers or statistics but I'm sure the c-rpg population is low, easily under 5,000 or even 3,000. I see that new games coming out such as the new Star Wars MMO or Skyrim will attract a good amount of our population, we will see large numbers disappear....

just a thought, maybe some members in your clans have spoken up about one of these or other games coming out and are eager to play them?
I know mine are...

Skyrim drops - People play it.After some weeks they are through and return to cRPG.Same with any other game pretty much.
Maybe it woud be better for me to find out where you life and kill you when you are satch a Soziopath. You have enough now.

As a Star Wars fan, I have to say the new MMO looks really bad in my opinion, looks like it caters to lots of little kiddies, which is understandable. Skyrim is singleplayer right? cRPG takes the mechanics of Mount and Blade and adds the best MMO elements to it. The skill based system is so much better than anything else I've tried out. When I feel crap and useless I play Champions Online and DC Universe, but they are just easymode standard MMOs. No PvE will ever compare to cRPG, MMO's will never have the same depth of play.

If i played wolfenstein ET for years (although it was 10x more fun than crpg) I dont see why crpg would die.
I got bored with brainless fps so now I play brainless medieval fps and spam 2h.

Hmm.

A statistic of active players would be nice to see.

Until that information, we can only speculate.

It doesn't matter what game comes out, I'm yet to find a game/mod that requires such "skill" as the M&M engine requires, which makes players stick around, players who like challenges (like myself) and that are tired of shitty console ports to PC, or fail PC releases like lately, thanks to this braindead gaming generation which buys every crappy game that gets out in the market just because the media says "it's a great game!".

Sigh.

By the way, shit might hit the fan if TW releases a Sequel to Warband, and maybe goes the way C-RPG went.
( I'm sure they're planning a sequel, WFAS is nothing compared to Warband. )
Then we'd have a real problem

I read a while ago that they've been working on a sequel. WFAS wasn't even made by TW, it was made by a different company. TW has been spending all their time on the sequel.

Even if interest in CRPG dies down, I'm sure Warband 2 would bring everybody back again.

Err.. Star Wars?  Sort of a different target audience isn't it?

Anyway - there are hundreds of games released every year.  There are probably more than 100 active mmos out there now.  (Many of them aren't very good of course, but people have different tastes.) 

cRPG might be threatened by.. I dunno, Mount and Blade 2, if that ever got made.  Though probably we'd just get upgraded to cRPG 2 in that case.  People here are looking for a certain sort of gameplay, and even if many of us may also enjoy some other games, I don't think it likely that any other game could replace what we're getting here.

I think given this previous experience it wouldn't pass a lot of time before someone will start developing a crpg-like mod for this hypothetical warband 2, maybe chadz himself would do it

chadz gave ut stats some months ago showing about 3000 daily players. If you are right ,that the numbers are closer to 5000, it means c-rpg is growing :D

Total Members: 12472

Members online: 293

Indicates a growth.

BF3 dropping is going to put a lot of hurt as i've heard tons frothing at the mouth. I recall firing up Bad Company 2 for the first time and it being my primary game for months- and BF3 is slated to be even better. Might lose a few FPS junkies on that one, at least for a while.

Shooters wont take people away from crpg/warband. Warband is just different from everything else and people will come back to it after a while most likely.
