Hey there, folks!

Title.

I've been going through a classics/RTS vibe as of late and I'm very interested in acquiring Dark Reign (especially since I've never played it before), and I'd do so primarily to play multiplayer. So my question is, where did the community go (in case there's still some sort of community, of course)?

Also, I understand it may be composed of 2 - 10 people at most, but so long as there are people around to enjoy some nice matches I'd be happy to get Dark Reign!

Thanks and cheers!
Hello! Dark Reign ws is dead since 2016. I guess the page just expired. I was a mod of that page but I left because due lack of team work. I had to delete spam comments all by myself. My last contact to another mod was also 2016. Satz the admin of the page remains a mystery though. I haven't seen him commenting since 2013!

The community of darkbreign ws died 2011 because the page was dead for 2 years! I wonder myself what happened. Maybe he has no interest in this game anymore.

I made a channel on youtube called Dark Reign WS Channel. There you can still download the Dark Reign 1.7 unofficial Add-on and Evolution of Xenite Add-on.

Dark Reign 1.7 is multiplayer based
Evolution of Xenite is both singleplayer and multiplayer.

Thanks a lot for your reply, mate :)

So, that means the game is pretty much dead and no one else (as in: absolutely nobody on Earth) plays the game as far as we can tell?

If that's the case, then it's quite a shame, for the game seems very nice :\
Very little. I lead them from my channel also to this forum. If there's ever going to be a dark reign community again, then here on the gog forum! I find it cool that they made a forum for each game they offer!

So, perhaps we could start another thread with the aim of attracting other players?

I don't know whether this will work, but who knows :)

Also, would you go 1v1 against me? Would be nice to have an opponent in case I actually get the game lol
I doubt this will help. Dk is getting older and so are the people who played it. I unfortunately have very little time and you can't play dk online that easy. It needs an virtual lan like Hamachi. I never played like this. I once tried it with a newer game but failed to do so.
Hello there lads, My name was |{ang@roo. I was a very active player of DR many years ago. I just came accross this forum and downloaded the game. It was great to fire up the ole girl. Is there any others of the old crew here? Nanitetank... what was your DR name? I'd be very keen for an online game if anyone is savvy enough to work out how and if we can play.
I was PhaseTank and XenPhaseTank in the dk ws forum. I never really played dk multiplayer. It was only one time.

Hi Kargaroo. I use to be known as Striker.
Hello everyone. The community is not dead! Clearly, as evidenced by all you fine people discussing the game right here. I am rebuilding the multiplayer community on discord.

discord.gg/fhgQwub

We have the multiplayer server hosted in Arizona, I have the source code. I'm not in touch with Satz or anything as those guys are apparently long gone. I am distributing the client. I have been a member of the Dark Reign multiplayer community since the year 2000 and I refuse to let this game die and I am finding discussion groups across the net still talking about Dark Reign in 2018 in order to spread the word. This game is not dead! I've even updated the Wikipedia page with a brief rundown on the situation and a link to the discord.

The client is tcp/udp compatible with the multiplayer backend up and running. I hope to see you guys there, even if you're not interested in actually playing you might be one day and this will be a valuable resource to find others whom feel the same way. Cya 'round! :)
