I apologize in advance if this is in the wrong forum.
I happened upon the $20 deal on Steam and was considering trying out this game. I heard a lot about it growing up (and watched my stepbrother play it when I was younger) and was kind of surprised it's still kicking.
So, I have a few questions:
1) What is the population like? One of the stickied posts said it was still going strong, but it was last edited a couple of years ago, so I wanted a more recent opinion. The official SE forums look kind of dead. Which server is the most populated?
2) I saw from the stickied threads that downloading the game from Steam had some problems as of January. Are those problems still present? Am I able to get the same $20 deal with all expansions from SE itself to avoid these issues?
Thanks tons for any help.
