Hello! I was inactive for roughly 4 years and I'm not very up to date. I just discovered N v2 and have some questions about it:

Did it really get rid of the death count?
Is there a speedrun category to compete in?
How is the score in highscores calculated?
What else do I need to know about the game, concerning changes over NReality 6g2?
Is NReality still a thing, or is it considered outdated?

If someone could answer all these, I'd really appreciate it! Thanks in advance!

NReality is still a thing and for most highscorers it's still the thing. I'll leave it to more knowledgeable others to answer the rest of your questions.

1) Yes, it did.
2) Nope.
3) As always, and then converted to frames (at 60 fps). To get the score in regular format, divide by 60.
4) Biggest issues (good and bad) include new physics engine, specially noticable if you had vast playing experience. Fixing of many bugs regarding gameplay, including the deletion of all tile tricks (corner jumps and such). Userlevel database and leaberboards for them now implemented ingame, with no feedback system though, resulting in poor quality standard and many trolls and spam. Addition of arcade mode, which is just playing a whole column with the score after deaths not resetting, but with no leaderboads so its quite pointless. You can leave episodes unfinished and continue them later, etc.

I won't mention the little changes because that list would be huge. Progress is now server-sided, so your .sol file only includes login info.
5) It's still the thing for most of us v1.4 people, however, it has spawned a new community of v2.0 only members.

Are there contests for NReality? I remember those being very much fun to play, as you didn't have to be a top-notch player to be able to compete and be successful. As a decent player hunting highscores/speedruns on metanet maps is not my kind of business.

says nipplypuffs/maestro who doesn't play N :)

I think poor userlevels standard of n2 is also down to some positive aspects of n2 like high popularity and easier to use level maker which even the laziest asshole can use.
Some of us really don't like the split in communities but some of us feel that what at first my seem as a slight difference in gameplay, makes a huge difference. Some of us much prefer n2 and even play some numa maps they like in n2 level 'editor', while also playing the odd map in n1.4

Nice to see another person come back to the game :)
The 'n Tower' was not built in a day. There were some remakes

Thanks for the informaions so far. I just have ne last question, and I will be silent:

Where does the community tend to go to? Is it NReality, or rather N2? I just don't want to play a game, where nobody else is :P

As you can deduce by what I said, the community has kind of split into 2, and so it should be clear that the community as you are thinking, that is, the v1.4 community, is still playing NReality. Some v2.0 members have joined, which is awesome, the other way around I think hasn't happened, noone has moved.

Regarding the contests, that's pretty much dead. You'll be lucky if we run 2-3 contests a year.
