Here I am 1 year later and Soldat has even less players than before, just as I predicted. Nothing seems to be working :/
Past me has identified the problem with stunning clarity

the current developer is a friggen idiot.

1. There's too many damn games to play these days, lol. With Halo Reach out and a lot of other fun titles, not a bad thing on one hand, but does keep server count low.
2. Soldat DOES need to go back to being simple to pick up and play. No portal, no waiting to be able to play. None of that fancy-schmancy stuff. The new poly types can stay though. I've been experimenting with a few maps. Might be able to make a fun stealth game mode... so long as people want to play.

ROFL. On one hand you said it needs to be simple, then on the other hand you said you were going to make a stealth game mode.

Face it, it's not the main game that keeps us interested in this game, or really most ANY game with scripting for that matter. It's the variety of the servers. That's one of the reasons I left, there weren't any servers that I was that intrested in anymore. Hexer was fun for awhile, but no server will keep you coming back for years. EVERYDAY I mean. I only play Gathers now because that's what gives me the most fun, it's heart pumping and exhilarating. If another fun server came along and it had players I would play in a heartbeat, but sadly there aren't that much scripters scripting new game modes left.

Release Soldat on the Xbox Live Arcade/PSN/WiiWare, make it a console hit, and make all the old players claim how good the original PC version is. Make them swarm to these forums after seeing the blinding flash of glory that PC Soldat will cause.

Now you've made shitloads of money and made the game popular once again! :O

Soldat just CAN'T work on the Xbox or any other console the way it does on PC.
Instead of trying to make it a console game, start hatching ideas to improve it within the limitations of a PC.

Soldat can't be ported to any gaming platform, because the language it is written in is not compatible with those platforms.

Anything can be re-written, just that in this case, it would take ages.

I don't rape people, I rape peoples' families, then burn their houses down, then show them how to sleep with the fish.

When me and my girlfriend broke up I was depressed, I couldn't do anything, I just sat there thinking that everything good in my life was over and it'd never come back. Then, a supposedly wise man came to me and said 'son, there are many fish in the sea'

how was I supposed to know he didn't mean it literally...

In some interview MM said that he might bother writing Soldat 2 after Link-Dead.
