Xonotic Comments

Great Game, Lacks Players, Dying Community.

Comment by Steak91
about Xonotic Oct 2016

Xonotic is one of the few (possibly only fps I've grown accustomed to). It's a great game, has very good gameplay, but there aren't that many players playing it.

Update:
I don't recommend this game to anyone that's looking for a good community. There aren't that many americans playing it, and a lot of the players remaining there are wannawinners meaning they just want to win. I'm sure this isn't the only game with this problem too.
