There are probably more alts on aether than there are players. However, most of those players also have very expensive ranks on the server, giving them a pay t o win advantage of not needing to care for full servers. But now it has been steadying around 332/330 players, making it very very difficult for new players to join. I only post this because I watch new players join all the time on the server, so I know there are others trying consistently but can not either. Also if we could get a suggestions chat on discord that would be a lot more efficient of a system, but that's not really my biggest concern.
