Will the game ever come back online?
« on: October 02, 2017, 12:17:03 AM »
Iím sure many of you are wondering the same thing but would anyone else really enjoy being able to play stick online again? Even just v2 not even V3 at this point, I think that if the server came back online we would maybe actually see quite a bit of players online. Anyway Iím just saying Meiun if your listening could you possibly get the v2 server up again? Lots of people would love to play it

Probably not. v3's been "in development" for almost a decade now with no updates since 2011 I believe. I think it's safe to say this little project a college kid did in his spare time in the early 2000's is long past its expiration date.

Even if it did launch I highly doubt much would really come of it. The final 2-3 years of the old V2 server were pretty dead; seldom would you log in and not be the only player online. And most of the people that were a part of the old community are in their 20's/30's by now and have long since moved on with their lives. V3 would probably be dead on arrival at this point, to put it bluntly.

Kind of a shame, I always liked playing on Stick/Slime Online and the many 39dll clones people would make and share on the forums back in the day.

I don't have any expectations that it will. I imagine Meiun has plenty real world responsibilities, and I know that I definitely wouldn't bother maintaining a decade old hobby project used by only a handful of people.

Still, I'm kicking myself for not getting that tiny last bit of experience to hit 100 before it all went down. I still check here often just in case, but it's unrealistic to expect someone to invest more time and money into something for nothing in return.
