Yeah, loads of people still play! This server has a relatively high player base, which will grow with new players like yourself as the summer comes nearer and nearer! We had near to 100 players on the other day! Stick around, you'll have a great time!
If there is anything else you need help with, don't hesitate to PM an admin or a helper!
The server's population is slowly increasing. Summer is knocking at the doors. And of course, if you check SA:MP's last statistics you'll be shocked to see that it's still a populated game, even though 10 years passeds since the release.
