If you go through the forums, you'll probably see a few managers say that it is, but it's not. A lot of active managers, and a lot of fighters to keep orgs very active.

Not dying but could use more managers such as yourself, your friends, relatives etc.

Yes! This!

Much as I hate to agree with Camara about anything... he is correct on this. It is much more fun with VIP.

 

Basically, learn what you can, get a mentor, it helps. Bring in as many of your friends and relatives as you can because they will probably add to your enjoyment especially if you get to fight them and earn some bragging rights. Anyway, it is always good to see new managers and we want you to stay so feel free to ask pretty much any of the managers in this post or elsewhere in the various help topics and they will, more than likely, be willing to help you out.

Just don't bring the imaginery ones lol.

It is true that game isn't as active as it was 2-3 years ago but still you don't need that many players to enjoy it. Join orgs with 80+ fighters and you will get the desired activity for your roster.

I think it's likely just as good as it was 8-9 years ago when I first started playing, it's just there are fewer insanely addicted managers now. With that, there's less forum posting, fewer write ups, etc.

Also, 8-9 years ago, forums were actually popular and a good way of communication. Nowadays, you don't really see healthy forums anywhere, which explains the lack of activity on this one.

General internet trend of forums going down and chats going up. I personally prefer forums since they don't require real-time and posts are much better preserved and searchable for later which fits the pace of this game better. And we got all spam posts conveniently sorted under a separate category.

Contracting if not dying, mostly because the fight engine which remains the genuinely interesting aspect of the game (the business side outside of the human element of orgs is fun for a few artistic types, but too basic to genuinely draw people in) is pretty well worked out and Mike is averaging a couple of tweaks per year at this point.

It is most certainly dying, as all online games of this nature (and even others like flash ones) eventually do as technology moves on but they don't. With old managers dropping like flies and Mike being as absent as ever, it is evident of such.

 

 

However, it will be a long time before the game is actually dead and you will still be able to have an enjoyable time fighting and training until then. There are many new players and orgs of both new and old, so you'll always have somewhere to compete. The game is what you and everyone else makes of it.

Yeah, that is the general consensus in regards to forums, I also prefer forums as well to be honest, chat's can be very time consuming. That said, the game active community is significantly down since the peak period 2010-2014, the game as it is now is about where it was a year ago, so it is not really going up or down.
