The game population is dwindling and there has been a lot of conversation of what to do to boost server population. I think the single easiest way to help this is to fix the game download options. Currently, Google Drive is not working and Mega requires a fee or a 6 hour wait time to finish downloading the game. Only the most hardcore people will go through all of that to attempt to play the game.
I know I personally gave up when the copy of the game I had would not patch correctly for one of my children. I could not figure out how to get the game going after battling with Microsoft Family Accounts to make it possible for him to play with me again.
Thank you for your understanding.
