For those that miss a permanant Apoc server, consider the one being hosted
by BastidRazor. He’s been a fixed resident in the S3d IRC channel for a long
time, and I’ve discussed much with him. He’s been running a clean, balanced
Apoc server for the better part of the year, yet gets few visitors..
I also occasionally host an Apoc server in my cycles now and then.
I got a PM from him a few months back, my last reply has not been picked up for many weeks now. He hinted he might be back but it wasn’t much.
I remember when ApocHQ was a more popular server that got attention. But players sort of dried up for Apoc. I think it likely that without a very high demand he simply put his skills in another area. He likes to tinker, fix, create. Due to the low demand I think the value of his mod sort of diminished for him. He really couldn’t have done much more to make it awesome. Sure there are always more models to make, but lets get real, he needed more fans. THe mod is there, its good, its under appreciated in a world of fps games. And yes, it is likely that he’s more into something l ike that now, an FPS or Role Playing game.
He’s just going free for a while. It might be some time before he returns. Just a guess of course, no way to know. Could be he’s gotten a new job that keeps his mind concentrated on something else, or GF. Anything like that can tip the scales.
