This one quote I have been hearing a lot recently. 'The game is dying, everyone is quitting!'
Yes, there a rather a lot of players you may have known in the past whom have now gone their separate ways. However, there are so many new players joining! I see so many new players in the game and on the forums. Old players will quit at some point but although they, yes, are mostly not active anymore these new players will now build up the game as the old players did. They will level up, maybe buy cubits, make realms, socialise and then will become the 'advanced' players.
Games are like a cycle, old players move on then new players join. It's only when that cycle breaks and new players don't join when a game starts to 'die'. I also, whilst I have the opportunity, to announce that I am not 'happy' that these old players, that I have some fantastic memories with have quit. No. I am distraught myself! But I am not going around telling other people that because so many of my friends have now found something else to do that now the game is 'over'.
This is a rather controversial topic, I know. So I suspect that there may be a few comments. In which I say are definitely worth the read, to hear out other's opinions on the matter.
