servers?

i've been curious about this game for a long time.

now that i've finally picked up, i'm not finding any servers out there whatsoever. what's the deal?

if i choose 'create game' will people over the internet be able to join me?

edit: turns out i just wasn't waiting long enough. been used to playing tf2, where oodles of servers pop up almost instantly. i was very pleasantly surprised to join up with some other fresh players and get my nostalgia on.

I think we are probably the only 3 people in the Steam community that actually plays this game.

there's often people playing in my experience. you have to search through the bot servers to find the real folks, but they're there. if you want to scratch the good ol' deathmatch itch, you can always fire up the original quake. it still has a relatively healthy community, and it's been updated to look much better than it used to. google 'nquake' and you'll see what i mean.

I tried to play this again recently. The entire server was using it as some glorified msn. Well I was in it purely for the gibs and they they didn't take too kindly to that..

I'll keep my eye open for you folks i'll be the guy your shouting at for spoiling your chat

Hi!
Anyone play this game? I have it as a gift, but I like to know how often found any players. I know even in dead games can be found sometimes players. Like in Smashball.

I think valve should quit charging for ricochet and death match classic so people can actually play.

I'd play it if there were servers that weren't full of bots.

When is the best time to play this game with real populated servers? I always end up playing with bots.

The community died when dmc-central went down, it´s sad that it happend. my two cents are
1. Get dmq http://dmq.geeky.cc/Default.aspx (so you can play on dmq servers)
2. a better forum is http://dmc.vibrion.org/index.php
3. if you want good games add me on steam (oskarfk (at) hotmail (dot) com) Im a old dmc players just wanting some fun, Allways open to help new players just remeber to doge my shaft :P

Try to get people playing this game again because the way I see it, it's Quake 1 multiplayer on the Half Life engine which is an updated version of the original Quake engine. Not many people know about the DMC forum. Maybe it needs to be advertised more. Hype the hell out of the concept of DMC Source, that seems to work. People still play TFC, Day of Defeat, and CS 1.6, so why not this game.
