There's a huge amount of quality coding, art and music in this game. It should be more popular. Here are some ideas to advertise it, some of them my own, some collected from others.
Youtube Vids: We should make videos with words in the descriptions like "Best Free FPS" and "Great Parkour", so people who search for keywords other than "Red Eclipse" will see the game. This is really frikin important.
Social Media: Lets get more player engagement, create a Discord channel, maybe Reddit, Facebook or Twitter.
Steam: Some people might consider this a sellout, but look at how well Teeworlds has done.
Conventions: Can anyone represent Red Eclipse to the gamer community?
Word of mouth: Tell your friends!!
If we can get a certain level of engagement where multiplayer actually feels active, the game will self perpetrate.

I am an Indie Youtuber and Indie streamer on Twitch and I would totally love to support the development of Red Eclipse. Ive been a fan of game ever since around 2008. Me and my friends first started playing AssaultCube and we moved onto Cube 2: Saur Justice Edition in 2010. I was so happy when the Justice Edition came out, cause it game me a reason to master the 30 new maps and use the new player models. I told everyone in the school and for months we would spend our lunches in the library running LAN servers through Hitachi, playing Insta-CTF on maps like Hallo, Tortuga, and Akroseum.
Reading around and talking to people on the IRC, Im noticing another game, Xonotic, that is evolution of Nexuiz. Which is amazing, cause I grew up playing Nexuiz too.
When I say support, I mean, Im going to be actively livestreaming Red Eclipse and would be happy to beta test new releases on my 2017 Mac.

Discord actually gets way more traffic than IRC ever got. Most people don't want to bother with installing an IRC client, connecting to a server, staying online to not miss out things. Discord is just all-around more convenient to use and keep yourself updated with than IRC for the average user.
Also, Red Eclipse is soft. You can spread it with a butter knife.
