Can’t say that I’m surprised. Copying something that’s 20 years old, adding minor things, and relying on a Clan Arena based game type is not going to make the game interesting. 2GD should had focused on an objective based game type like capture the flag instead. Clearly, the game didn't turn out as expected. In the end, this game is just another statistic.
Hopefully, people will start coming back to the community ran games, like Warfork, Xonotic, Doombringer, and OpenArena, just to name a few.
