So I just bought this and the upcoming expansion, started the sp campaign on hard, I wanted a challenge and like always its pretty much a tutorial since this game is focused on multiplayer (?)

I became bored of the sp when a certain convoy kept killing itself and the enemies went over whelming because the only differnce on hard is how much health they have I think. :/ so I wanted to hop onto multiplayer, but I only saw 3 empty servers.. is this a dead game? is the expansion just going to be their last effort to revive this game? ORRR ( I hope this is it) might there be something wrong with my internet that blocks most servers. @_@

I hope someone can give me some answers.

likely game is dead. I enjoyed first Section 8 but community is probably gone now and waiting for prejudice. If you bought expansion already just hold off and enjoy it in a couple weeks.

I could actually beat that convoy mission on hard in just 1 try, I died but no checkpoint restart. But that was after the initial frustration, and my success rate is a 60% at best to win in 1 try on a random day... back when I did play.

Anyways, 4x repair modules and lots of shields. Don't shoot anything that isn't shooting you. Det pack rocket turret spawn points when beacons show up. Let your AI buddies get all the attention. It's called exploiting the stupid AI.

Once you learn this trick, the rest of the campaign is easy. Stupidly easy. Convoy mission was the only one I died on my first playthrough. Otherwise, I survived out of luck or randomly did the right approach.

And others responded to your main topic at hand.

Oh, the stupid convoy mission returns as a new tank mission because 360 reviews mention it. Have fun!

don't bother with this or Prejudice
It will be doomed just like all GFWL games

It's safe to say that it is dead...

Fallout New Vegas and GTAIV did alright. I think Section 8 will do better as a $15 download than a $50 retail game.

there were ~30 people at 5:30pm april 24

i dont consider this dead though cuz there are some dedicated people, including the ones that run these 24/7 'servers' (isnt the older game p2p without a dedicated server?)

dark athena & wolfenstein are dead, but having people pretty much every evening is good enough

we'll see what happens when the sequel is out though...

Funny that, Dawn of War 2 did pretty well for itself even before Retribution made the switch to steamworks and Dirt2 still gets plenty attention as does GTA4 and its expansions.
