Hey there!

It's me, you're friendly neighborhood disappearing Alien Arena player!

This year has been pretty ridiculous for me so I haven't been playing much Alien Arena. There's always this little voice in my head saying "Go play Alien Arena already" but I haven't been listening to it :/   (to be fair, I have played some singleplayer with bots, but I've only gone online once or twice)  

I HAVE been playing Xonotic, Urban Terror, and most recently, Quake Champions. I got into QC's closed beta on the third day, so I feel pretty lucky. I've been having a great time playing it, and I discovered that bad as I am in Alien Arena, I'm actually worse in QC! I never thought that was possible! Despite having played Xonotic, Urban Terror and Alien Arena on and off for the past 2 or three years I never seem to get better, but hey, its the fun that counts. (I really just need to shut up and focus on one game if I'm going to get better)

Any of you been playing Quake Champions?

Anyway I was diddling through steam one day and noticed Alien Arena got greenlit on steam! Awesome! That brought back some nice memories, so I've been thinking about picking it up and playing it some more Smile

How's the community? Larger? Smaller? Anyone major left?

Anyway, just thought I'd drop by and say hello!

See you all in the arena! (hopefully)

The community is very small these days, but still loyal and active. The shrinkage of playerbase was to be expected not having a release in 4+ years. However, once the game is released on Steam, we are expecting a much larger(very much) player base than at any other time in the game's history.

I would suggest getting the beta, or using SVN to keep up with the latest until the Steam version is released.

I'm very excited to hear about AA getting put on steam for that very reason. I've never known Alien Arena during a large influx of players, so it'd be really nice to open up the server browser and see it full of people fragging away.

I'll download it later today.
Welcome back! Download the beta and start fraggin!
