    In my opinion this could kill stadium, or re-unite it with more players. I would presume they will take down the current tmnf/tmuf servers to force people to buy tm2:stadium. This could work well, or it could flop. We shall see.......

    well, it is possible that they will take down the TMUF/TMNF servers, but they don't have to buy Stadium, it's free. If they don't feel inclined to buying the rest, they don't need to.

    TM2: Stadium will be free? I presumed it would be the same price as Canyon.

    Then I'm pretty certain they will close the servers after a month or so after release, which will force everyone to ManiaPlanet where everything is together in one world. Let's just hope they can push the game like they did with Shootmania to make it an eSport like Nations used to be.

    Hopefully they take all the feedback from the pro players during the beta to get it back to being a big part of eSports. :)

    I think the idea is to entice people who are still playing TMUF (like me) into buying TM2, by letting them play with the familiar stadium environment and getting them to buy the other environments because they will see the improvements and decide that they want to try the other environments. I believe that's the theory anyway...

    yeah, forgot to mention that, currently it is in Beta, but they are looking for testers and you can join up for it here: http://www.trackmania.com/stadium/

    yep, i agree with that theory

    Yes I agree, but many of those Freezone players may stop playing when they see they need to buy the game. Maybe they will implement Freezone into TM2 stadium also, I don't know.

    Aslong as they keep the gameplay mostly the same, and fix the god damn rammstein bugs when you're about to get a WR! :thumbsup:

    Well, Stadium is now visible within ManiaPlanet. Florent is currently playing the game (The developer) at this very moment, so hopefully a release soon!!! :cool:
