I don't know who has flagged this package as out-of-date, but it was.
So I mentioned it.

This button is abused quite often. Unfortunately there are some people
who regularly flag a package as out-of-date just because they think
there are bugs in the PKGBUILD and they are just waiting for a new
version of the PKGBUILD - so they misuse it as their personal bug
tracker - or in this case because they probably think that a package is
"too" old for their taste.

I guess, if the servers aren't accessible anymore then this game can be
considered as unusable anymore. So I guess it won't work anymore
except if there's also a single player mode.

One other thing. The votes are meant for having a package moved to
[community] and not for having it kept in AUR. The minimum of required
votes are 10 as far as I know. So a package with 7 votes is not that
far away from that.
