How popular was Nexuiz? - Gwlanbzh - 10-01-2020

I ask this because I am not familiar at all with this period: Nexuiz is older than me, and idk how popular were video games 20 years ago.  So when i read that Nexuiz was very popular, i wondered... how?

You might want to check out the discord to get an answer.

Yes I'm already on it. Didn't think it was more active than the forum Rolleyes

You can check out Rexuiz. I myself never played Nexuiz either but Recuiz claims to aim for similarity. It has about as much players as xon. When you are from Europe you'll most likely find a deathmatch. It's fun. But i miss strafe mechanics.

We can say from verifiable data that Xonotic has about 400 daily active players. Is there such a source for Rexuiz?

During Nexuiz 2.4.2, I could recall seeing at least a couple hundred players online every time I booted the game up. Jumping into grapple hook CTF normal weapons matches was only difficult because the servers hosting it would always max out. It wasn't in the mainstream, but for an underground FPS it was damn popular. Sadly the game was in a slow decline up to the point of a certain event happening and said event was basically the death of it. Xonotic for whatever reason never gained Nexuiz's playerbase back either, though one could hope it some day does.

I loved the game. Fast paced action, create your own levels with steam workshop and host your own servers (ideal for those wanting to play with friends only, casually, instead of joining servers where you compete with 24/7 players with no life, who beat the ... out of you in 2 secs).
Definitely old school shooter. At USD$2,5.- at Steam, is simply awesome bang for the buck. ($7,48 four pack)
Not sure if the DLC (USD$1,25 is needed for hosting your server, I bought them together.
Even at the regular 10 bucks is a good buy
