This game is dead online.

Honestly guys. There's no point in buying the new map pack because no one is online anymore. I've got around 20 excellent maps just waiting to be played, but there's no one around to play them.

That's based on 360 voice subscribers only. Although it is pretty quiet on there nowadays.

I'd have to agree. Unfortunately I can never find any matches anymore or before the map packs. Very rarely there'd be a player match due to achievement goers, but no one that actually plays to play. I've tried to get matches from the wee hours of the morning into wee hours of the night and if lucky will get only 1 or 2 matches and that's it.

Great game, but not a lot of people playing it.

Do you know what's really dead? Cloning Clyde online. Well, kinda. When you're from New Zealand, every 360 game looks dead. Like the CoD4:MW beta. You never find a good game!

Someone on my friends list was begging me to play CC with him yesterday, but I didn't have time.

BoB had a fairly good amount of people online during the summer. I haven't really played much after that, but it is like every other XBLA game pretty much.

Buy the map packs anyway, we support original games, cheap DLC, and NinjaBee!!! :D

I do, from time to time, load up Band of Bugs to see if someone is online, but I can never find anyone. Which is a shame, because I quite like the online versus.

maybe a Band of Bugs community play date might be in order.

I loved the singleplayer but I never really enjoyed the multiplayer. It was often a matter of who goes first wins or neither opponent wanting to move their bug into range, so it turned into a stalemate.

That's pretty much it. The first person to mess up a single move would normally lose the game.
