Players in four different Positions run plays with trick Passing while trying to knock each other out. All weapons have infinite ammo, and players Regenerate Health. A brutal Charge is the best way to knock out or kill a player.

This Game or Mod is good and i like it's concept however it's very empty and what I meant as Empty, I meant there's barley anyone playing it so if you looking for a full multiplayer game look somewhere else

and sure people disagreed with me but I ASSURE YOU THAT THERE'S NO CROWEDED SERVERS IN THIS MOD

I got this "mod" for hl2 off steam a couple weeks ago, and I liked the idea of it. Its a sport i'd never seen before.
Looked competitive and fun, so I downloaded it.
I started playing the tutorial, and I learned everything I needed to know.
Then...
I got to the servers tab, and NO ONE was online.
No servers.
No players.
Just me.
Its a shame really, because I can imagine myself having fun and playing, but with BOTS?
Nope.
Aint Having It. Either this game starts to get a few people or im done.

It's fun, but there are literally no servers. Not one server showed up when I went to find one. You can play with bots, but that's not the real thing. I'd rather just play Half-Life 2: Deathmatch.

Smashball is an amazing game, it's a mixture of TF2 & rugby(football),it's a team-based game that relies on teamwork between each team, for starters you have to know all the basics from the tutorial.

the only main problem is that, there are no one playing this game and servers are empty.. kinda sad, because it really has the big potential to be a competitive game.

Best mod for HL2 you'll play. Extremely engaging with a community that helps new players get involved with the action.

This game needs a revival. Let's be pure and simple about this. Smashball is dead in terms of a community. No less, this would be worth a return. Let's get into it, guys. Smashball. Hyper, fun, cool, and merely need a revival.

Smashball is a fun addicting game. The controls are a little weird to get a grip of, but once you get it, its pretty fun.

I liked smashball, I didn't play it in its "hey-day" and I cant play it now much if at all really. The only thing preventing me from playing though is players, it seems there are none. If you have the friends I would recommend trying the game but seeing as there are no players or servers up anymore it really is your only hope to have a few friends who also want to play it.

This is one of my favorite competitive games of all time. The learning curve is kinda steep but once you get the "swing" of things (hurrhurrhurr) its tonnes of fun! Each match is packed full of adrenaline fueled pulse pounding excitement!

Smashball is a fast-paced, ultraviolent first-person sports shooter. Two teams use superhuman maneuvers, a real-physics grappling hook and high-powered weaponry to try to get a single ball into the goal of their opponents.
Smash Ball is a fun, free mod which differs from your usual gaming habits. There is the potential to have some cool moments of teamwork, but mostly it goes under in the frenetic action that is constantly going on. There is still plenty to do on the four maps that are currently available.
If you are looking for a new use for the Source Engine that also provides plenty of fast fun, you can give Smashball a chance. Unfortunately the mod is dead, nowadays there are only empty servers.

I love the concept of this game and the whole idea was smart. Gameplay is fun but when you keep playing with bots it gets annoying. The game is dead, I look at the servers tab and I see 0 servers online, no players. This game would be fun but no one plays it.
