Dear Spagg, let me answer this and explain you why you are a little wrong here:

[1st) GameRanger has a few hosting problems lately due to server maintainance, so people avoid playing games there for a while.

[2nd) There are some periods when there are very few people playing TAK there and this may be one of them, but this doesn't mean TAK is dead.

[3rd) I had some games with my big brother, who uses the name "Gman" in GameRanger. This is the first time he plays TAK online in his life, so he can be counted as a new player. Despite the fact he is not interested in playing with other people than me online (not yet at least), this shows that a few new people join the online TAK experience even nowdays!

[4th) I always consider my games as "big games", because I am such a great and big Kingdoms player (We laugh here!) so there were big games these weeks, lmao!!

And yet... you still try to play.

I quit playing a long time ago, but I gotta be honest somethings you can't move beyond....

I can still remember exactly how to play, never forgot.

And I sometimes hear TAK sounds in my head, or while I sleep; weather witch before it casts tornado, mon getting attacked sound, and trebucheuts to name a few..... all embedded in my brain... forever.


God help you guys, because thats what 10+ years of TA:K has done to me.....

Thank god, I've enjoyed TA:Kingdoms without hearing sounds in my head (my addiction was big, but not so big to cause even the smallest mental distress) except for TAK's Iron Plague cinematics music (I still hear that music on my head and in real-life since it is so freaking epic!). TA:Kingdoms suffers from a "bad" year of online gameplay, but this doesn't mean it will stay dead after, let's say, 2 months. However, even if TAK's online gameplay completely dies:

1st) It would have already survived for 13 freaking years online, which must be a record for such an underrated/underestimated game!

2nd) People will still play it as a single player game against the machine, so it will never trully die!

Well, anyway, I think TA:Kingdoms has overall done me more good than harm, so I thank Cavedog for creating such an epic game and I also thank this community for giving me this game for free!!!

Alright I'm not starting a discussion here, because people will take it personal (or distort everything maliciously) instead of looking it in a constructive way.

Is Tak deader than ever? Not rly, there has been worse times. And "suddenly" better times.

Worse - mid 2008 there was 0 players at GSA (not even the 6t6 afkers), and there was no forum like this. At that time anyone would think that there was no coming back for TAK.

I agree 100% here! Many people were in a hurry to perform the funeral for Total Annihilation: Kingdoms, but this little forgotten masterpiece always finds a way to cheat its own death and rises once more beyond the grave...

I'll see what I can do over the summer. I might come back to work on the mod, but I need a windows machine.

Hasn't this game been dead forever? I played a couple years back on Warzone, but every time I've logged in there over the last year or so there have been only 1-2 other folks there, always AFK.

I had lots of good times on TAK. I was never the best player, but could hold my own against most players.

Yea tak has been dead forever, like 12 years ago, if it was ever alive Razz. But servers like GSA, WZ and GR insist on supporting TAK. People insist in coming back, whether it's the same 2-3 guys and their smurfs or not.

Btw anyone msg me for 1v1, you can come with your smurf if you want, I don't care anymore. Just don't expect me to play like ppl played in gsa or mlagger, retard TAK days are over man Sad

Yer just wasting your time with that smurf... Even in gsa there were times when no room was open, even if people are online. Especially if u log for a minute just to say it on forum.

Hope you are happy with what you are achieving. bb

I've had a few fun games in the last week. Brought back memories. I'm surprised at the number of "newbies" who don't really know what they're doing, though. Who would've thought after all this time?

I know you don't care at all for the reasons and you just wanted to bring the topic up, but I'll answer anyway.


First of all 80% is wrong, it's way less. And many are smurfs, like Henrique or Luck. I can't be sure though... The rest are newbies (or old players coming back) getting links from the national social net Orkut, which has almost a thousand followers. Because TAK used to be sold a lot here more than a decade ago, and many are experiencing online play only now.

Hence the fact that Spagg and Henrique didn't quit because I beat them. Probably because I'm more proficient in portuguese than I'm in english, and they don't silly take things personally as easily as people I have to chat with in english.

There are many other reasons tho, like Brazil being very populous, being one of the countries with most internet users, etc. I'd say brazilians are 2/10 or 3/10 today (this year more or less) of the people interested in TAK online that actually download the online client - Gameranger - and show their "faces". It used to be way less before I came back here, and before other players as Junior, Luck,SPagg and Henrique started spamming the web about TAK.

I was wrong, it ressurrected again, many players are creating rooms and playing games.

What used to be rare (3v3 4v4) is now more common than what used to be common (2v2).

Tak wont die this soon
