This game is pretty nice, but nobody ever plays it. Every time I've looked for servers, there's only a few servers that appear like someone's playing in them, but they're actually all bots.

If you enjoy playing with bots online, this game is for you. If you wish to find a game with players only, don't bother downloading.

Even some "dead" ut2004 mods have a more active playerbase.
