Do people still play Starcraft Brood War frequently online?

TBH I like brood war more than SC2. But I don't know if it is worth digging up since I don't know if the online is dead or not.

The GameFAQs board is dead so that's not a good sign.

According to this there is 3,339 players currently playing 103 games of Starcraft Broodwar. Hope that answers your question.

A game of that caliper will always have a cult following till the very last of it.

On the flip side; a game that old is usually losing more players then gaining. It has a reverse half-life effect.

So the population that it is currently today; is the highest it will ever be..it will be a downward cycle.

Having said that; you will most likely be able to find people online for many years.

One other negative; the majority of the people who still play are probably above average in skill so a new player will have a tougher time getting into the community and holding their own.
