The community is now dead, unfortunately
Eh, no it's not. Certainly not as many people are playing it anymore. But there are always quite a few players on at any given time. Compared to recent games that were released and have online mp, and 3 people playing, that's saying something.
And hey, one of my favorite servers is still up for the game. It's running Invasion, totally customized with tons of Unreal monsters and monsters from movies etc, all custom sounds and skins etc etc. Great mod/TC and great server after all these years. And my stats are still up there!
