There are two different versions of ESF. The stable version that people play is 1.2.3, there are servers up for it. The version you probably have is the Open Beta which is an incomplete build of the next version of ESF. There's occasionally servers up for the Open Beta, but not always.

You should see a list of servers if you have 1.2.3, but if you don't, here are some you can try to connect to

U.S. Servers
209.250.234.69:27016 ~ East Coast ESF ~
216.6.235.120:27015 The Learning Zone [New York City]
68.201.45.191:27012 Hate's All-4-1 Playground [Texas,USA]

European Servers
84.244.187.116:27015 [S2k] ESF 1.2.3 Pro server

I've been starting to play since yesterday as well, and there seems to be around 11 servers, 5 of them are ECX and the rest (6) are using the original ESF gameplay. From what I can tell, there is always someone to play with. And, heck. If you can't find any players near your own location, create a server. You might be lucky if people join it.

There are enough. At each release you usually see around 50 - 100 servers up which is pretty crazy.

Lets just hope they did revamp the 1.3 beta version... its quite tragic compared to 1.2.3

Noone played the open beta since it came out. People disslike buggy versions.

It lasted about 2 weeks before they all went back to playing 1.2.3

I don't think that it's the bugs. People just don't want to play an uncompleted version that doesn't have a proper melee system implemented yet.

For the pro players, I think it was the fact that it took a long time to get a kill, and oftentimes after 5 minutes of fighting your kill would be stolen from you. Plus the swoop speeds were fast / hard to control. For the people who wanted a DBZ simulation and what not, it was probably the fact that the game was incomplete.

ESF 1.2.3 is dead too, handful of Eu and US servers.. new people get pwnt by the veterans.. when newbs ask for help.. only a few pro's help them out.. usually they get ignored and owned further..
plus no newb is being guided to some kind of tutorial.. they play "for the first time" and realize that the learning curve is steep... they translate that to "wtf is this? how do i (insert random move) ? "
in frustration they leave after blowing themselves up with a spirit bomb for 5 times in a row.

Doesnt help that when in a server you try to help someone and the remaining 2 guys in the server constantly kill the new guy for easy points.

Oh and BTW. This thread is 1 year old >.>
