OCN was and still is my favorite server to this day. I first played on it in 2013. In 2013-2014, there were 1000-1500 people on regularly. It was amazing. There were so many Project Ares servers to choose from, and no matter what you didn't have to fret, because every server was filled with people. It was spectacular! There were so many people on it. It was so much fun! I played with my friends and we had the best time. And then... 2015 came. 2015... ah. Ok, well... Yeah. 2015 was the year. 2015... So, in 2015, the player count started to go down. I don't know why, but it did. It got to about 800 people regularly, which was still amazing. Then 600... then 500... Then 400... And once 1.9 came out it was at like 200. Now it is at about 150 max peak. I can't believe it. I was so heartbroken when it first went down in 2015 that I took a one year hiatus. I came back about a week ago to find that there are like 150 players max on the server, and the amount of Project Ares servers were like cut in half. There's like 8 now maybe, but only like 3 usually have players in it. It's terrible! No one plays Blitz. I was on it last night, and there literally wasn't a single person playing Blitz. I don't play Blitz personally, but I remember it had a lot of players in it either way. I was always a Project Ares type of guy, and there used to be so many players in it. Now just like I said before, there's like 100. It's terrible! There's no server that's ever full now. I don't know how, but I really want to do something to turn this around, because honestly... I swear... I SWEAR... playing Project Ares a few years ago when so many people were on was just some of the best moments of my life with my friends. I am not even joking when I say that. I can't see this server go down anymore. We must do something. Please anyone! What can we do? I don't know what to do! Literally all it would take is for just one big YouTuber to play it in like one video or on stream, but that most likely won't happen, so what can we do?
I got banned 3 years ago. Since that moment I still want to play and I really want to get ban list reseted to like 3000 players could join again.
I just really want this server to sky rocket the player count. Like, I am telling you, this server was my life. Literally, I am not kidding when I say this, but the server really gave me the best moment with my friends. I come back and I see it totally down with the player count. It's terrible... It really is. I've been playing again on the server, but the Project Ares servers are just not full. It just doesn't feel the same in-game without that full effect. You know? I wish they like advertise more or something. I don't know what to do. I don't want to see my favorite server go to waste.
