Not sure if u all noticed but since 2017 a big amount of sparers started quitting. As all sparers agreed the glory days of graal were 2014-2017. 2017-2019 weren’t very bad, however the end of 2020 is when everyone said f/uck it and gave up on the game and quit. Since last season a lot of players and guilds quit and retired after GST an example is Holy both the guild and its players quit except me really. Alumni, they retired a while ago but now all their players quit. Tmrwgang, some of the players still play some quit. A lot more guilds and sparers quit it will be a long list if I name them all.
I have a discord server for the sparring community (which I will delete after this GST) we all agreed that the game just got boring. There was nothing new in spar these past years, GST never changed and became boring. Second reason is the amount of foreigners that play the game now, non english speakers and they delay and lag like ***. Hard to admit but since the game was advertised in 2017 to Brazil the game went down hell since then. (Not just brazilians) single spar completely died in 2017 because of the amount of new delayers. Nobody complaining about delay but its boring to face them, shoulda gave them their own server. Another big reason why we quit is admins not caring anymore, too many hackers in battle arena that dont get banned. People were fed up with it last GST when 20% of the participators cheated, either by toggling god mode, speeding, using VPN, playing on multiple accounts during GST (no hating but such as Roblox the guild that won mixed at least 3 of them played on 2/3 accs.)
edit: lets not mention the fact at least 10 guilds boosted AND qualified last gst. It’s impossible now to qualify to Mixed GST using a new guild without boosting literally impossible since the entry requirement is 2410+.
Anyways, a lot more are planning to quit after this GST. it was fun while it lasted goodluck.
