I don't think it's dead or dying rather than branching off between the respective communities. There are always going to be a core set of players who will return, or always find time to play within the week. It's sad that the size of community we have as a whole has to be separated by dated conflicts, arrogance, and the general misinformation that's passed about between the popular ports. Generally the players who enjoy playing doom, regardless of the level of skill they have in the game, will still come back, and don't have a problem playing anywhere as long as it's "Doom". In the end we're all here to play the same damn game. The day we can all agree with that is not any in the foreseeable future.

People have been saying that 'Doom is dead' for a pretty damn long time now, but it's not like it's getting progressively worse. There was a time when things changed from zdaemon being what it was to what it is now, but that change is over, and it happened a few years ago. I even see new people now and then that are OK. But in addition to any new players to the port, there is also a core group of Doom lovers like myself that will play Doom on any port. I mean, just last night we had a zdctf priv with over a dozen players in it. And after that we played a few rounds on a different port. I think that's just the way it is now.

Also, Demonsphere has a very, very creepy avatar.

I picture this wonderful day where the big 3 online ports all have 100+ users online at all times.

A guy can dream, right?!

Doom itself aren't dying, our source-port it's the entity that are dying slowly...

Nah, Very Happy

As an european, I noticed that most people play around 6:00pm-11:00pm. During the day there are usually very few people, except maybe on saturdays/sundays.

there are only two major ports today: zdaemon and zandronum

I've started to see a huge drop off for zandro... most week nights have sub-40 people playing. About a year ago, it was common to get about 100.

I can't speak for everybody and I'm not anybody but I play zdaemon every single damn day after work.... under a plethora of aliases because well who cares. I declare the pot calling the kettle black! Get in those servers every chance you get.
