Is this the kind of flavor of the month thing to do? Nag and moan about how people are leaving the game?
How can the game be dying when there's people within it's community who are still willing to go ahead and support it? Yeah, certain areas are falling off the face of earth (*cough* New York City! *endcough*) But that doesn't mean that the game is dead or anywhere near dying yet.
Yeah, sure things weren't the same how they were three years ago but I can also make a similar point about other games and about three years ago. SOTG? Not needed. Good idea, but I can remember several times where there wasn't one for gaps of two months of more. Regionals? Remember when this was just a THOUGHT and not a reality? Low attendance at World's/Nats? For crying out loud, that happened when people got told "Hey we're starting this cycle thing and by this time next year, your cards aren't playable." THAT was the cause of low attendance.
I just hope that we don't end up seeing the holiday sale as a fire sale... (Really $25 for a box?! Damn it... you need to send via FCM) And hope that another UFS set is still in the future... No wait... THERE IS another UFS set in the future... people just need to wait.
