Is DoD:s dead?

Hi All,

Long time no see.

Just wanted to say hello and see if anyone from the old days is still about.

I can see that nobody has posted here for some time.

I have noticed that there has been little to no activity on the servers and I am wondering is DoD:S finally dead?

It just seemed like a slow decline and a lot of the old regs have moved on.

Opinions anyone?

Yep, dead.

EDIT: Just look at the last post dates for any game/forum. It's not just the game, it's UKCS as a whole. It's on it's arse.

I'm around very rarely but go on other servers due to lack of traffic on UKCS.

Such a shame - it kept me going through my GCSE's and I really need DoD to keep me going through my Degree too :P

I know it's a bit of a bump, but came back and had a look in DODS after revisiting for the TF2 annoucement - my last non-admin post on the forums was three and a half years ago...

Haven't played DODS in yonks, unlikely to again as the Day Of Infamy mod of Insurgency (now standalone game) is feckin' awesome, much better than I remember DODS being. Maybe that's where everyone from DODS went?

Pad.

Yeah I got the feeling the community was on it's arse :(

Given that that one CS:S server is filled and one or two TF2 servers are filled at any given night......and everything else is empty.

Such a shame I met some really fun folks here it's really sad to see the way things have gotten.

I blame the the way gaming culture has changed, clan and community servers appear to be relics....

Yeah I find myself playing Day of Infamy quite a lot now, it has certainly filled the void.

I also have high hopes for Days of War.

Yeah it's like it's come to a sad end. The forum, the TF2 community, it's all been forgotten and left behind. Very sad, but i still keep in touch with a few who i played with back when TF2 servers were full but obviously life has changed many, things like marriage, kids etc, even emigrating to the other side of the world. And some just stopped gaming. I still play, although nothing like i used to, Overwatch is one that i know a few have moved on to but it's not the same. :(
I think it would be a good idea to corroborate a list of members and what pc games they play nowadays, maybe even PS4 or XBOX 1, with usernames so we can see who is playing what and perhaps it will re-unite some of us players?

Its all fallen apart Dove, they shouldn't of removed or pushed out all the people that made it what it was.

But hey ho... community management knows best.... Oh wait?? There not even involved anymore... Wasted effort.

Things N0rd said


When Sunday nights was gun game and all that other stuff, good times. Everyone knows #5 was best server, I think I got about 12k of my Wehrmacht Support kills on that map. Lots of fun knifing Sergio when he was on. I've still not had a mulitplayer game pull me in like DOD. </3

Edit: It's just passed 10 years since I joined. :ill:

Even I venture back no and again, to reminisce.

Nothing fills my DoD:S hole. My WW2 craving. This game still has the best weapon balance, sound design, map design, 12 years on.

hey Emo, Des
It is a shame, for me it is still the best game i've ever played and have yet to find another game (and company) where i have laughed so much.

Wow, just reinstalled this today. Seems there are about four servers left, thankfully a 24/7 donner is still running (shame it's not this one though). Damn life getting in the way. To think, I got this game 11 years ago and have never enjoyed playing anything more than this. I have seen, and been in, so many clans/communities rise and fall over the years and met so many people through it. This game has had a massive influence on my life and I guess it was the bringing of new life into my family that finally managed to pull me away from it. A second child having their third birthday and it feels like I've just come up for air.

Thankyou DoD:S, for all the good times and the bad. I have loved every minute of it and it will be forever in my heart <3

I'll try and pop on Steam and maybe whatever dods server exists when I can, so maybe see you in the ether somewhere <3
