Thanks for the info. I avoid that channel like syphilis.
Can I ask why you think we're being pushed away? The lessening of communication has been ongoing for years. Mostly due to us, the playerbase being a group of "ChuckleFucks" as Azmo once called us. Also, whom do you mean by we? Players in general, or a certain subset?
This is the first I've heard that particular thought, so I'm curious. I also haven't been super active the last 2years, just dipping in and out. Edit: actually no. I heard it years ago. About players who considered themselves "hardcore" or "elite" being pushed out by Devs wanting this server to be "casual". I always thought they just didn't know when to stfu and say "Ok, mb I'll stop". But I think you mean this in a different way.
