The time that I played it was when server was best apparently. At that time it lasted for almost 2 months. There was a 80 player online population during the whole time, you never get bored in CZ because there is always some PK going on, and the content was endless so you could never get bored of the simple XP/farming items like all the other servers have, because this one had more then that.
Only reason why it closed down was the reason why most other servers get closed down. Population went from like 80/day to 60/day after a month or so and people freaked out and started leaving.
I am still going to join if there is an 80/day,... however if people just give it a chance I`m 95% they will love it and stay on it for a long time, and with that said, if they do give it a chance, and there is an initial population of just even 200 players online,... there is no doubt that the server will last for a few months,... 3+ for sure.
