Why would I play when there's only 13 ? What am I gonna do waste my time doing runs ... For what ?
Who am I meant to interact with ?
Why would I play on this server when there's legit no one playing ? You're acting like it's fun to play on a low pop server, you also think that if I came on it would make a difference but in the end the server would still be dead ...
Simple as if Phoenix wants to have more players or a more active community one or more things needs to happen
A) A mass unban.
B) New features or Faction.
C) Make runs provide just a bit more money.
D) Get cops to change the way they work and seek more roleplay within situations than attempting to resolve the situation with combat .
E) Get rid off ban hungry admins
F) Instead of bans use reputation point more often and instead of going into support and getting comp, make the person learn a lesson or make them go out of their way to read the rules so that they can maintain a good playing standard making all experiences fun for every party on the server .
Some of these generally need to happen because the server pop will never rise and maintain itself . Phoenix will forever be locked to an inconsistent player base.
