    Well. This game isn't a mystery on whether or not it is underpopulated because it is.

    I feel that Rusty Hearts won't last long compared to it's Korean predecessor.

    Max I've seen on west server is probably 100 people throughout the day.

    East and EU servers don't differ much either.

    And yes, I've tried playing during the "rush hour" for each time zone and still no luck. You can barely make a party these days.



    I would have loved to see this game in beta =/

    Hmmm, wasn't Rusty Hearts very popular in Beta?

    This is kind of sad to hear--the game was absolutely massive last fall. Everywhere I went in town there would be lag issues due to the sheer number of players there. :(

    I think part of the problem might be that there are just way too many channels within each server, so all of the players are spread out and it thins the population.

    I think Raiderz will draw people away as well.

    I'm...not too sure about Raiderz. It seems like an okay game, but nothing really outstanding.

    It sucks compared to TERA and some of the other heavy hitters coming out this year in a similar Genre like C9. But it already has a large fan base and is a new type of MMO for PWE. It will draw players from other PWE games.

    Doesn't seem like the most intelligent marketing strategy, especially since they spent so much effort hyping up RH. I might give Raiderz a go, but I don't think I'll ever get serious about it.

    PWE is weird about their games like that. They recently sent out an email to everyone who played Forsaken World and offered them free stuff for forsaken world if they played for so many hours on Blacklight retribution(Another PWE game).

    I even face palmed over that email lol

    The key is ZEN, it's universal. PWE doesn't care which game you spend it on as long as your spending it.

    That is a shame because Rusty Hearts started out so well.

    Thought it would win the MMORPG Showdown 6, but RuneScape is still a force in Free MMORPGs.

    Guess it had a heavy kickstart for a flame but the flame just burned out too fast for this game.

    It does make it really boring if nobody else is on and nobody cares to raise guild levels.

    Hmmmm, well we can try to get back into it. Besides Dungeon Defenders and possibly Drakensang, Rusty Hearts has been one of the better games to play as a group.

    There are a lot of free games out there and while Rusty Hearts is good, it seems actively hostile to players. There are a lot of small frustrations that just add up, and then you shrug and go back to Team Fortress 2 which loves you with hats.

    Rusty Hearts is still the best brawler style game I've seen in a while, though.

    Yes, Rusty Hearts is one of the best brawlers I have seen myself.

    PWE, the publisher, and Windysoft, the delevoper are doing there best to stop the issues. East and EU server are fix, West is in the process, and PWE is taking note. There not ignoring there players. And they have something new like every week, so I don't see the game dieing anytime soon.
