For people saying it's team based, while that's the developer's intentions most of the human population rather do their own thing. Most don't want to deal with other people, get bosses around, ignored, etc.
So the game will die. Shame as they do SO MUCH right. The fundamentals are great. No netcode fixes mentioned and nothing to make the game better for people that don't play with friends everytime. Rip. This is why the player count is dwindling rapidly.
