There are routinely about 5000 plus people playing Halo Wars. That number has held steady for a long time. It actually seems to be increasing slightly. I think it's because it offers people the opportunity to compete on a seriously intellectual/strategic
level. It's not like a first person shooter that only tests the quality of your internet connection or the speed with which your fingers can press the keypad. Join us. If you like ruthless competition, you won't be disappointed.
