There is so much negativity here and a lot less productivity then many forums, so I'm not surprised they've gone other places.
Maybe if we could get a little more positive and productive here they might come back, or we might manage NEW vets as silly as that sounds.
I've been here since around August or so. I've seen some people come and go in the meantime (usually with a plethora of "DIS SUX IM LEAVING" threads). It's funny because you don't really notice it all that much until you go through your older posts and suddenly you're like, "Hey, I haven't seen that guy in a while..."
I have been here since June. A week or so after the announcement is when I found this forum section. This is my first post in awhile because, as someone else said, the posts get really redundant. People came and went a lot. I feel the forum had ups and downs. I see what you mean with some of the new guys being annoying about every noob post, but it has been like that for a LOONNNGGG while.
The trolls came and went especially after every announcement. I still remember the awful posts after the character leak... I feel this forum had one of its worst periods shortly after the release because of all the complaining. But it has cooled off significantly.
