All are either extinct, or typically bot and lifeless, or there are players, 50/50 bots and a map straight from minecraft.

8.6 servers are usually very p2w, bot infested and have corrupt owners/staff team so they're unplayable for a casual player.

I would officially say that they're dead and for a good cause.

People need to start moving on and improving the newer engines and not being stuck in the past whilst not even doing a good job at hosting those kind of servers.

I wouldn't care if people wanted to host 8.6 and older but ffs at least do a good job at it.

unfotunately pay to win has ruined most everything.
i have what i like to think is a fun and original take on an OT
my whole goal was to make something unique and free for people.
instead of all these half baked, soulless servers out here.
but 6 months in and i barely have players even though its free, so i take it theres other hidden gems like my server out here, but probably not many, and they probably dont have a big enough community to attract anyone

Now while I agree with you, most servers do have overpowered items in their stores, but, what if it wasnt like this? And the owner wouldnt be corrupted? Would this work?

You have to consider that people just don’t have the time one used to have before. Now ofcourse that doesnt mean that everyone can just go and buy shit on an OT like nothing.

I'm making a custom map 8.6 OT. Started with Rook/Thais, then ended up deleteing the map after editing it for awhile. I couldn't come to a good medium with an rl map. Keeping just rl spawns won't work because let's be honest it's an OT and no one's going to spend hours to days in, grinding for a possible reset, an outage, p2w or poor management

I believe it would work, a lot of people have amazing ideas & visions on how to create something great but majority are casuals, they don't have much experience and knowledge of creating a server and everything that comes with it. I personally feel like that's the case, a lot don't have the time and patience to learn everything too. A casual I feel like hasn't got that greed mentality whereas those who have the knowledge abuse it out of ignorance & greed.
