Hey, I'm back from the dead, Somewhat. I recently came back to graal after a few years since I left many years ago, Started a new account since I gave my old one away, Mainly came back to see See how the game is doing, Seems even this thread and forum is even dead, games dead, everything is dead. Didn't last that long at all, and from what I've been hearing, apparently, people can't farm gralats in other peoples houses? So that killed codeshops, also a ton of other bad stuff apparently was removed and edited around that I won't bother getting into.
I think there isn't much reason going into why the game died, I think the developers know why, They had to of. But the real cause of death was such lack of action, and taking far too much time to get anything done that was positive for it. There was supposedly if I remember a New guild system that was suppose to be in play but from my understanding, never came out, You had a newer area being built to the left of swamp, never done, I also recall the came was apparently gonna be remade in unity, Also don't think this was ever done... The biggest healthiest change for the game was the castle revamp if I recall, and that was years ago. a huge issue was just nothing ever getting done. there was projects, But none was ever done, Then there would be talk of a new project when the last one wasn't even that much went into. The biggest aspects in this game was the social aspect, which imo was bigger than the competitive asoect, as that part was mostly a joke. but those was the biggest two, Instead of improving these factors, they just went on assuming people who still play and the community would continue to thrive, For reasons I don't understand. In reality this game died because the developers treated it like the CEO of Blockbuster did for that company, Ignoring the need to improve their product against competitors in the blind thought of assuming people would just stay with them, Not building onto the successful factors, And making "projects" that never, ever got done, This game was able to survive for a bit. because the social aspect kept it alive mostly, And it's just gonna continue to die, give it about 2-3 years and the playerbase is gonna drop even more. and then more and more. It's going to be extremely hard for them to rebuild. If they even can honestly.
