    I totally agree with you.

    Maybe I'm missing some context here but I don't get the snide remarks these two are getting. Only reason I ever got back into GS was because I stumbled onto one of Whirlin's youtube videos, read his guides, found this forum. Both undeniably contributed to growing the community, and I think, survival of the game itself. Kudos to you and best of luck in whatever is next.

    I'd guess it's because those people who become overly involved with it want more from the game than what the game currently offers. Whether it's mechanical, roleplay, information, or other things, they feel like they can contribute to that part of the game that is lacking.

    Whole-heartedly agreed. No matter how or why Dreaven and Whirlin are getting out now, they both contributed to the game and community, and I also hope for the best of luck for both of them.

    A company, a community, a family, a sport team is 2 things: the people, and the loud (or leader). In this case, gemstone is losing not one but two leaders. Two people that put part of their personnality in the community. Two people that took risk, that tried to help others with their knowledge. Two people that were in front of the parade, not within. That's why they get critics at this moment, weak people shit on leaders but they won't take their place cause they don't have what it takes to be a real leader, someone that build something and not only to shit on it (because they're envious).

    In gs3, when big, strong, loud, intelligent leaders left, there was a bit of gemstone dying. Every big name that left buried a bit more gs into its grave. The game changed and survived but is not what it was. It lacked what was strong in the past: dynamism.

    The golden age has passed and it's been a while.

    The people that are leaving, right now were fighters trying to not only make the game better but trying to make the game survivre more.

    I salute you, Dreaven, Whirlin. For me, you were part of the reasons I like this game and your departure pains me for real.

    Hope everything you will be doing with the time you put here will be as signifiant.
    Pretty melodramatic don't ya think? And no, none of this is generational unless you're making the point that the boys are acting like the millennial stereotype. This whole thing carries way less import than you're assigning it.

    I've heard this a bunch of times. I started in 1995. You have a generation that is entirely gone that was Genie 1992-1994 and while people respect that for it's rarity it's kind of grown into a myth. A lot of people are like 1998 when 2000 people were on nightly was the golden age and I disagree again. It really comes down to storytelling, which is what this game does best. Each of us is an individual hero so when people bring up WoW when we're just a DPS/Heal/Tank cog and we're replaceable Gemstone IV seems to trump that and actually make us an important piece or an actual person. 2006-2008 was a legit tough time for the game, but honestly since 2010 the game has been pretty spectacular when you look at it from the lens of it's entire existence.

    I've actually considered 2010-2016 the best gaming years in my experience. Likely based on the activity, flow, expansion of combat areas, mechanics and then finally, the storytelling.

    2017 I've just had less free time.

    Whirlin was a big contributor. Dreavenings had some mixed feelings, but both were active members of the community. You never want to lose players, but people, as a cycle, stop playing, take breaks, return or quit. It's just the nature of the beast. These two just happened to share their reasons and feelings of why. It's feedback that is true or false depending on the listener.

    Nah...some people are good for the community and some are bad. Whirlin's head was too big and he needed to go. Dreaven just needs to get over his snit and come back.

    Just personal grudges coming out of the woodwork.
    You had better pay your guild dues before you forget. You are 113 months behind.
