I can come back if people still play. Any multiplayer going on these days?

Rarely - but it does happen :D
Easiest way to get players is to organize a game yourself. Had some great coop games over the summer.

Yes. floss, Pro and I had fun in VVG-DRH last night. Broke a foot button; 15 + shipping. Well worth it.

I look on Vortex but only those BOZ bots are on half the time... It's sad. I'm not a co-op kinda guy, I love the competitive side of things. I'd love to get a regular CTF game in Veins going again, that was still a popular map back only a few years ago.

Check around 4 P.M. EST. We had 4 in BI3 DRH for 2 hours 12-31-17. Crazy good fun with Mental Floss,LEON, Alexander and I (mickey1). 3 Tanks and me in a Black Pyro. I had to stop using the Phoenix for the extra ammo and agility. Speed will just get you ganked faster; the AB, forget about it except in a dogfight.

Vauss you soon

Ehhhh. You're welcome? I'm rusty as hell TBH. Xbox has definitely spoiled me. But I plan on randomly shooting in from time to time.

There are two types of people who play this game... those who forget D3 is a thing, and those who forget D1/2 are a thing.

Do you speak multiplayer only? What I am driving at, is it worth for Type 1 guy (who is deep in D1/2) to try D3 SP campaign? Or maybe try it's MP occasionally for fun?

It's not a hard-and-fast rule, just a general observation :)
The D3 single-player mode has some gameplay issues (mainly that almost all the robots are hard to hit), but if you have the game it's probably at least worth trying.

I don't have D3 unfortunately, so there is also a question whether it is worth buying.

Honestly, my only problems with D3 are the beginning of level 4 and the engine room in level 13.

Though for some reason the configuration refuses to stick on my Win10.
