Hi all!
Are there any servers alive for BZFlag 1.x? Are there any old-school guys who still play 1.x branch of the game?
I just want to play an old version despite its deficiencies, I believe it must be cool :P

1.x does not refer to a specific branch. 1.10 and 1.7 versions are not compatible with each other. As for 1.10, I do not think there are any servers running. And for 1.7, I'm not even sure if that list server is running anymore. (which means even if someone was running a 1.7 server, you wouldn't be able to tell since the server list wouldn't work)

blast is right - 1.7 is a dead version. The 1.7 list server went offline quite a few years ago and the last "official 1.7 server" (hosted by Tim Riker) was shut down in the beginning of 2010. There might be unknown private 1.7 servers but since not all 1.7-versions are compatible, you will have serious problems finding a server or other players for a match.
