I can come back if people still play. Any multiplayer going on these days?

Rarely - but it does happen :D
Easiest way to get players is to organize a game yourself. Had some great coop games over the summer.

Yes. floss, Pro and I had fun in VVG-DRH last night. Broke a foot button; 15 + shipping. Well worth it.

I look on Vortex but only those BOZ bots are on half the time... It's sad. I'm not a co-op kinda guy, I love the competitive side of things. I'd love to get a regular CTF game in Veins going again, that was still a popular map back only a few years ago.

Check around 4 P.M. EST. We had 4 in BI3 DRH for 2 hours 12-31-17. Crazy good fun with Mental Floss,LEON, Alexander and I (mickey1). 3 Tanks and me in a Black Pyro. I had to stop using the Phoenix for the extra ammo and agility. Speed will just get you ganked faster; the AB, forget about it except in a dogfight.

Vauss you soon

Ehhhh. You're welcome? I'm rusty as hell TBH. Xbox has definitely spoiled me. But I plan on randomly shooting in from time to time.

There are two types of people who play this game... those who forget D3 is a thing, and those who forget D1/2 are a thing.

Do you speak multiplayer only? What I am driving at, is it worth for Type 1 guy (who is deep in D1/2) to try D3 SP campaign? Or maybe try it's MP occasionally for fun?

It's not a hard-and-fast rule, just a general observation :)
The D3 single-player mode has some gameplay issues (mainly that almost all the robots are hard to hit), but if you have the game it's probably at least worth trying.

I don't have D3 unfortunately, so there is also a question whether it is worth buying.

Honestly, my only problems with D3 are the beginning of level 4 and the engine room in level 13.

Though for some reason the configuration refuses to stick on my Win10.

Re: Do people still play this game? YES D3 Anarchy

Is it possible to play fun games without strongly participating in ranking games/tournaments? I am interested in occasionally playing multiplayer (D1/D2) games but don't care about ranks. And I cannot plan for sure whether I will be able to play at particular day and particular time.

Yes. You can't guarantee when people will be on-line, but pick-up games do still happen.

Try weekdays and weekends at around 6pm EST onwards. Come on mumble around then and you'll regularly find three or four people looking to play.

I still remember playing D2 on Kali and I could see 3-4 sockets full of games. When D3 was hot, there was a lot of games but I think it died within a couple of years.

Do you mean anyone can see a game and join? Because frankly both on Descent Rangers and DCL, I was pissed off by the procedure for becoming a member, I think it is more complex than one used by Google to hire a leading Research Engineer :). Surely more complex than in Intel where I worked. Yes I understand that people are to comply to some rules, should be sane and not be cheaters/trolls, but the application procedure looks overwhelming - especially in such a small community... And do I absolutely need Retro mod to play, or Rebirth 0.58.1 is ok?

Yeah the games I'm talking about you don't need to be a member of anything. If the game is open, it's probably free to join (unless someone left something open by mistake. But the title will usually tell you if it's a Rangers or DCL game... if it doesn't, it's the host's fault for neither locking it down nor making it clear ;)).

Retro is usually necessary, though, because it made protocol modifications to reduce latency (among other things) that base Rebirth doesn't support. The most frequently-used versions are 1.4.5a for D1 and 1.4.X3 for D2, although that might change in the next few months because roncli is doing some work on it.
