Honestly if you want to help CS2D just tell about it to your friends, if they refuse then maybe a 2D clone of CS1.6 isn't as exciting as it was back in 2012 and you should find another game to play.
AlexGuy has writtenIn fact, may I say, is it almost the same with most of the games? For example, you just kill in Battle Royales and then again.
In short, the game is now all just about killing eachother and participating in tournaments in which tryhards are only in.
You were too close to the real point. What this game lacks and what other games do for retaining the players playing is that there is some kind of progression scheme where you discern your level, items, stats and so on. Perhaps if there were a small bar and text which graphically show you your level and as well as needed experience until to next level. And following all the rounds or particular actions, you gain experience points and repeatedly this is being presented as graphically as well. This may attract people, which is not for sure though but worth trying.
There's even CS2D in the title. Makes no sense to post this in Off-Topic. Moved.
If there's just "Iran Town" then this either means that people only want to play "Iran Town" or that people who don't want to play it do not try hard enough to change it. Changing it would be so simple. E.g. by simply joining Non-Iran-Town-Servers (there are enough).
Couldn't agree more with what Mami Tomoe said
If you want to play classic CS2D or any specific game mode just find/convince a few people and do it. I see nothing which should stop you from doing so.
Is only required to create a teams of people who can draw, code, make sounds and maps and other thing. Is related to the community. People always want to make from CS2D another game, to add some non standard game play mods and maps.
The game is supposed to be shooter, then most mods need to be more interested if so. But not these primitive mods with only exp and lvl shit. People want to unlock something what is under secret before they reach requirements.
CS2D is not died and wouldn't. But just online is smaller and smaller because newest players don't see something cool. And is not about the game, since it already look very nice and still developing, the problem is that there is no choice of servers to play.
We only can back time by ourselves with making something cool and interesting, since the game allow it we have only to work. But people are lazy. They don't want and cannot create a normal adequate community to work together.
Server #1 is 19/20 players while I'm typing this btw.
"At least do something to revive it" is a too idealistic option for this community, while this site is only suitable for English and German speakers, if you want the quantity for not being "dead" you should allow more foreign language.

@ DC: If i specify Iran Town correctly, i mean that the game cannot be all about killing eachother on other servers. If you want to be shot up from behind by a tryhard who plays like he dosen't need a keyboard or a mouse and plays telepathically, do so. And if you ask me about my skill i'm not a noob, i'm a casual who dosen't need much skill to kill a decent player, and not like the one specified here.
@ mrc: If there was no people who play like one specified in the reply to DC, i'd gladly do.
You should play on U.S.G.N. only servers with admins which take care an kick/ban these people. Or on servers with people who know that you can vote to kick players.
Or do you seriously complain that CS2D is mainly about killing each other? That's what CS2D is and always will be. If you dislike that you should play something else (there are enough other games, including games not made by Unreal Software) or play fancy Lua mods. There are also tons of those.
If you're asking for a life changing mega update for CS2D: Sorry, not planned. CS2D is good the way it is and it's not smart to keep stacking more and more fancy stuff on top of an old foundation - because at some point everything would collapse.
@ mrc: These games are purely dead, there's almost no activity on them.
It would be possible to fix that with some kind of ranking and matchmaking but I assume that there are not enough players in CS2D to make that work well. Also it would require a well organized server landscape and people who actually make sure that nothing explodes. I mean a crazy server admin, cheaters or just some weird Lua scripts could easily ruin this whole thing completely.
In other words: Nice in theory, won't work in practice.
Therefore the best approach to handle that would be the manual way. Find people who play CS2D and have comparable skills. On forums, chats or in CS2D itself. Then just meet on private servers and play there.
Regarding Carnage Contest and Minigolf Madness: These games just work well when played with friends (or sane and friendly strangers). This is an issue. Many people who play games either don't have friends or don't want to organize game sessions with friends manually.
I miss so much construction and escape maps/modes these days.

I am making a Wing-Man server where you can ask some pro player to help you win
I could do an excellent job with the images, I offer to help. if in the distant future they want to do it, I hope to be alive to see it.
@ Quattro: I still hope you share the competition code, no matter if it's not ready, upload it somewhere, anyway I plan to edit it and use only what I need.
don't be selfish with the code
