to be fair they've needed to revamp or get rid of the rank cap for districts for a long time. full bronze district and you're gold? might as well log off or play fight club lol

game doesnt have enough players to be segregating people like that
Only game that still use rank systems are dota and league if i am not mistaken, since those gamers still have  A LOT OF PLAYERS

are you saying the rank system is an unnecessary part of the game ?  disagree.  bronze will never be able to play against gold . if bronze sucks 10 matches in a row . how long do you think this player will be online ?
simple numbers - population USA 329.758.367 , BR 212.664.368 , Mexiko 9.100.000  -

population  Russia 146.880.432 -

The population of Europe is approximately 692 million people -

but on the European server, you must also take into account the number of Russian players .

installing a new engine is not a dream, I believe Matt hired skilled workers .  executable.  there are no events . No Beacon , the light beacon is closed .  I don't want to stand in a social area . Let's wait more and more for LO to take action.  Edited by Yood

game is dead tbh, mainly on NA. There's so many people on EU like its not even funny. Most of NA literally just went to EU or are either waiting for engine update. dudes don't know how to prioritize what everyone wants and just keep delaying this damn engine update like whats the point of playing when there's nothing new other than broken weapon balancing

It's kind of amazing how many people are waiting for some meaningful content so that they have a reason to come back.

But that's exactly it. The game has been stale for years. It's been two action districts since beta in 2009, and a lot of people don't like Waterfront. Cosmetics and guns are not enough to keep people coming back when there are so many other games out there. There isn't even a meaningful ranked system for people to grind out for prestige.

I honestly can't see LO throwing enough resources at the game to breathe life into it, but like many others I'll be keeping an eye out.

2015 and 2016 the years were very eventful , which naturally attracted the attention of both old and new players .

+1 and now back to not existing for another six months while LO does nothing except make server crashes a daily occurrence.

Needs to be made worthwhile to play again. Everything is stale, and there's inherently obvious spawn / map / weapon imbalances that they've yet to notice or fix.  If you've got 1000s of hours thrown into this game there's nothing to progress towards or enjoy anymore other than the grind of never ending killing of silvers.

Well, this game is very unfriendly towards newbies and pretty stale for experienced players so there are more people leaving the game than joining

They can't do much though for new players aside from the weapon balancing they are trying to do. First needs to come the first UE3.5 engine upgrade and even then it would be smarter to wait for the second UE4 engine upgrade. Sidenote: YaY. First post.
EDIT: Let me clarify, smarter as in for the developers since they would have to port less things and it would be faster. I myself am pretty sure that we'll be getting some content after the first engine upgrade, which can still be ways ahead.

If they will wait for EU 4.0 before adding any big updates than game will probably have population lower than DeathGarden

The player base could be having more fun doing IRL law work or criminal activities. 

Also the real life game mechanics are fluid.

EU servers are pretty good, sucks having all my current contacts on Waterfront though with Financial being so much more populated

There's often more people watching on Twitch than there is on Jericho.

The engine upgrade, when it comes out, should bring back a lot of people. Many were disenfranchised by the promises that Reloaded gave them and you shouldn't expect miracles, but you should expect more people then.

Reasons I don't log in.

1) Dethreating still unpunished. In fact, the dethreaters that left/got banned came back, and just made it miserable.

2) Scum

3) Rainbow Six Siege

4) The Division
