Has died DRASTICALLY over the past 6 months. I have seen the summer drop off before, and this is not it, and while we are taking people in, I think it is happening like this... 10 New people come play 5 Good old vets leave due to faction arties, pets, or whatever their reason. 5 of those new people leave because skill gain is too hard 1 of those new people leave because they're established elsewhere and it's easier there 1 new person leaves because it is frustrating only being able to do one thing, due to having one character slot. Another new guy losess interest. I have seen a ton of new people over the past few months, but only see them for a week or so, maybe a month tops. So I am transferring my gold back to GL where it is actually possible to purchase the things you need/want in game, as well as find people. I'll still play here maybe when it picks up again, and will still work skills.
