    Deathrun is like a thing that died long ago, but for some reason gets up and walks around the room. Nobody really wants to say anything about it because everyone is scared of the literal fucking zombie in the corner, and maybe they just quietly hope that someday it will finally drop dead for good.

    But it wont. Deathrun is going to kill all of us, mark my fucking words.

    I say we force people to play deathrun. "You have to have at least 1 hour per week in deathrun to buy c4s." It kills 2 birds with one stone.

    edit: but for real i also wish people would play deathrun but a forum suggestion unfortunately won't do squat

    Deathrun is a lot of fun with the right amount of people, but there just isn't enough people in the community that plays it. Both @Nathan776 and myself have tried in the past to revive deathrun, with both of us putting a lot of time and effort into getting updates for the server. When I was exclusively deathrun staff, I was able to get people on it periodically, but the momentum never stuck. Its hard to get players to stick around and play again when the servers dont have much to offer with playtime. I thought that with a big update it may bring players within the community to try deathrun, but the stigma of "Ew deadrun" is just far too embedded in their minds that nothing will ever change that. Outside of the players within the community, there arent enough people that play deathrun to bring it enough traffic to even get those updates.

    Every now and again someone will come along, just like Nathan and I did, that wants to give their all into reviving deathrun. They will realize just as I did that its near impossible to do so. Its honestly a shame. We had a deathrun game night while I was DR staff, it included a lot of the TTT staff at the time and a few of the community deathrun members. Afterwards, over half of the TTT staff had begun to play DR regularly with me when I would call for a repop, and 1 of them even went full time to DR. Even with all of this, I dont think that Deathrun will ever be as populated as it was in 2015-2016.

    It's hard to revive Deathrun nowadays. I've tried so many times with repop attempts and pushing people in Shoutbox to come join Deathrun and have some fun. All the time people will just ignore and never join. Although I'll love to help revive Deathrun it's never going to happen. The cycle is, it's gets populated for a week, then it dies. I would love for people to try Deathrun, but there's no-one on the server to try it, so that's why we never get new players. So in conclusion, I love Deathrun and in my heart it'll always be better than TTT.

    If only we had a gamemode that was similar to Deathrun, but didn't require repopping over and over again, and could be enjoyed by any number of players

    I spoke with highwon about changing gamemodes as well. His biggest issue was the time it would take to get the server up and running with all the addons and such. We looked into different gamemodes such as prop hunt, bhop, melon bomb, murder, but none of them had a higher player count than our deathrun server did at the time. They are all probably higher now just because of how little repops there have been for Deathrun, but at the time I was able to consistently get people to play daily.

    Don’t worry buddy. I’ve gone through a lot of the suggestions up to the past 2 years that might be good additions. Nathan and I built up an entire thread dedicated to suggestions and changed for deathrun. I’m FIGHTING hard to get the updates to deathrun. One day highwon will budge lmao
