Jumped on top see what was happening with my good old favorite game TF2 tonight. There are currently 1353 community servers online, down from nearly 28,000 when I shut down the BOOM! servers a year and a half ago.

Of those 1353 servers, 68 servers had real players in them and only 30 of them had over 20 players.

It's sad to see, but inevitable, that TF2 community servers would one day take their place in gaming history as so many of the games I played over the past 30 years have, but seeing the TF2 community fade away leaves me particularly raw after the many years of fun and great relationships it brought my way. Because of the hectic life I live,I rarely, if ever, play games anymore, but I hope someday another great game comes along that brings back the community feeling I enjoyed playing CSS and TF2.

I'm glad to see people still play the game, but it's just not the same playing with total strangers through the TF2 match-making system. You never really get to know someone and the hackers and trolls are as bad as ever, if not worse.
Miss you all,
