Game won't be revived because we don't get updates. Everyone got bored because we got no more new features.
Playing same maps with same weapons with same settings for 5 years is totally autistic, we need to develop something new.

Hey admins, I have a really awesome idea. My suggestion is that you do something and don't die after a few days. Yeah all these big plans and announcements are cool, but they get boring after I read them 0.2 times :'(
I know it's very hard to do, but I really like this idea and I think it should be considered by you.

I guess it would be good to make people aware of how well OpenSpades is doing on GameJolt.

It's the number 1 shooter:

118.8k plays is nothing to sneeze at.

what are you talking about guys, when I think of AoS I think of the 3D version of Subspace Continuum (yep the same old thing for 20 years) which in turn is like IRC in space.

Anyway not much going for BnS right now. No reason to use 0.75 protocol anymore except for OS compatibility and nostalgia. Even the reason why we are all here right now is held together by little more than toothpicks.

how will the stubborn ol' farts convert to IB on aloha? Truth is we can't force them on buildandshoot. Aloha has most of the busy servers.

Well IB could replace AoS/OS, but only if:
1. It supported older versions of OpenGL (~2.0?) or would have SW mode
2. It had better balanced/fleshed out weapons. Bolt-action sucks, smg sucks, flamethrower kinda sucks too, portal gun is out of place. Reload & hip animations/weapon placement is far from being polished.
3. Didn't have "toon" effect as default. All terain from some distance starts looking just 100% black.
But other than that, it could have more success than AoS, because you can do so much more with that engine.

4. I don't like lua for some reason. Too n00b?

W/e, we have one more engine on it's way, maybe it'll prove to be better.

Just read this thread, trying to push everyone to use one version didn't work in 2013 and it's not gonna work in 2016. The fact of the matter is:

a) 0.75 is the final officially released build.

b) 0.76 was only released in various builds and due to Jagex interference, was never officially released beyond beta testing.

c) Trying to enforce some "only this version" list isn't gonna bring the community together.

If anything, what people should decide on is a few versions they like (0.75, 0.76, 0.54 for a throwback) and get all the server hosts like Aloha and... idk who else to primarily host those. This community is way too small to split itself up any more.
