Well, it's an old game. Almost 2 decades old by now. Population decline was bound to happen eventually as people's interests change, and their hardware allows for more taxing games. Also there's a lot more big budget free games out there now that people are more interested in, such as CS:GO, League of Legends or Fortnite. And of course gaming in general has gotten massive now, with a variety of games to choose from across multiple platforms. Not a lot of people are gonna hear about CS2D anymore. And when they do, they probably won't stick with it for long. Maybe only checking it out briefly as a curiosity, if they can even be bothered to do that, even with Steam making it easier and more accessible than ever.

But it had a really good run, being almost always active everyday with tons of user generated content being made, with official support seemingly never ending despite no profit. It's really cool how this little indie game made it so far, when so many other indie multiplayer games stay on 0 players forever, even if they don't deserve it. It managed to build a community, got people to connect and make friendships that last to this day, it got people to get into coding, pixel art, map design, which then led to some of them making their own games and maybe even get a job as a programmer and such. It's really awesome, and something to appreciate about CS2D and DC forever.

I'm just waiting for Stranded III: Revenge of the Burning Turtle and Carnage Contest 1.0 now. Aaaany time now.

According to the servers there are some 10 or 20 thousand members or more.
I just don't understand how so few people are playing. There used to be ddos attacks a lot
now there's a new scrollbar glitch.
well hopefully playerage will pick up some someday.

The scrollbar glitch is fixed already, you just need to download the newest CS2D.exe file from the official website. Or you can get a Steam version which will receive automatic updates everytime.
You received a game ban because you seem to be a cheater. You are not able to log-in in-game anymore.

Simple answer: devs don't care about this game, the game is so broken and impossible to update because of the old engine. Now people got decent hardware and theres better games (some of them are free), so yeah people always search for better stuff.

CS2D is an old game. No one gonna play an old game like CS2D. You can just play CS2D but only few people play it. Even the older Players in here are now adult and cannot play CS2D since their having so many schedule.
C++ is hard, change my mind.

if devs dont't care about the game - game gonna die some years ago. I think game need advertisement. Game have things to do. Like map editing, mods, lua scripts, need just your imagination.

Yeah but your imaginations limited by the engine limits. And lagness of smth that u'd like to do. People making so much nice mods like Masea, that looks like a completely new game, so why don't you just develop your own 2d game based on cs2d's look but with mechanics you want? That's what I'd like to do in future.

That's not only because we have a lot of routine to do, but also because it's so easy to get tired after years of actively playing the same game. Even if it receives updates.
