I played BF1942 for years after it was considered outdated because of a tournament and that tourny had about 500 regular players.

CRPG has as far bigger population, if it's a slow death, I still predict it will take a couple years for it to happen.

Plus: M&B2 anyone? :wink:

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.

I'm not saying they're the same demographic, i'm saying that there are a sizeable number of people who play warband who fit into the hardcore FPS demographic. If BF3 is as much of a polished product in terms of multiplayer as BC2 was there are going to be a lot of happy preoccupied shooters.

I don't expect BF3 to have that long a life though. Unless they have proper mod support (which they've been lacking since 1942), modders are probably going to get fed up with it and give up. They've been petitioning for mod support for a long time now, seeing as BF2 mod support was so poor. And particularly as things are bound to be more complicated now I don't think modders will be as willing. In which case within a month people will get bored of it.

i'm watching another medieval based videogame in development but i think i won't drop warband for this.
Warband and cRPG in particular are like my videogame drug fix when i come home from work.

I always wished this had gotten more attention on 1942. Notice the archers 2 finger salute  :lol:

It was good fun for the time that I played it. Unfortunately the community was minuscule. A shame it was never finished either  :(

cRPG will die when either chadz or a good part of the dev team leaves.

And I think this will happen much sooner than a player exodus, as cRPG is so freaking addictive.


So I'm pretty confident in the future of this mod. The donkey crew doesn't seem likely to give up now.

This is the upcoming game (indie) i'm waiting , the sequel of Age of Chivalry (fun game but bad compared *to warband).

I remember Age of Chivalry. I always thought it was pretty crap myself. As a very arcadey thing it was alright. But for long term play or more serious play it wasn't suited for it.

Edit: Thought that newer version doesn't look to bad.

I have yet to see a game with such a good melee combat system. Even the upcoming games don't seem to have anything close to this.

Warband is NEXT-GEN, yo.

Saw something in the off topic section. Looks like the next Mount and Blade folks. Though not set to come till sometime in 2012. But it has single player and multiplayer.

'Players will get the chance to lead their warrior through a rich progression system, gaining upgrades and unlocking new content on their path from filthy peasant to unstoppable armored killing machine.'

I reckon cRPG is safe for a while though.

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

Hopefully someone else will make something like c-rpg. It would be the best if they make it official mod but I wouldn't mind playing mod made by other mod crew.

BC2 has no mod support and has a huge playerbase years after its release.

Amoung the usual 12 year old console loving, modern warfare fan boys?

The only reason I played BF2 was for FH2.

I don't think cRPG has the type of community to be pulled away by such games for long.

Yes, because you don't like a game lauded as one of the most solid multiplayer experiences of all times means everyone else is a ravenous lunatic. Meanwhile you nostalgiasturbate to an ancient game that fell to the wayside multiple years ago.

Yep, dem BC2 fanboys.

Warband is my most played game easily. With 600 hours in so far, a lot of this is singeplayer and other mods, but probably 400 or so in cRPG. My second most played online game was BF2, played that for 250 hours. This game has had the most lasting appeal to me, part of that is because of the small playerbase, you know most people. So I wouldn't mind if the playerbase would get smaller, I think the death of cRPG is still far away.

Skyrim will not entertain for more than 100 hours for most and its also not an online game, so I don't think we have much to fear from that.

Battlefield 3, mehh, there have been other high profile games that cRPG survived, some people will dissappear, I think a lot will eventually come back to cRPG. Only Warband 2 might really cut into the cRPG playerbase, I think most cRPG will gladly go play warband 2 and I hope chadz will too.
