Re: Official Gold Championships Discussions Thread
Well done SM, well done.
After years of growing with the game, I have finally witnessed its demise. The pursuit of monetary gain has subsequently exploited and killed off SM's one unique selling point. After browsing through the forum (on one bored night clearly!), it just hurts to see how so much has changed and how the need for new ideas to increase clientele acted as the sword that pierced through its own heart. Many valuable members have left and no points for guessing why, especially if you witnessed SM 3/4 years ago, even before that (Ever since its inception in 2005).
I do feel upset seeing the state of the game come to this. The forum doesn't feel the same anymore, the relationship between users is different. There is no more sense of community, no friendship, nothing.
Just a quick post as a former Gameworld moderator...
It's been a total pleasure playing for so many years with individuals who I deemed to be my own friends; seeing their names pop up everyday on the forums and inbox; it genuinely did feel like home. It's sad to see the game come to this but a business is a business, and money is money.
To everyone still addicted to this game, you guys are the lucky ones. Enjoy it while it lasts. Peace from this old timer however.
I'll be back one day, to you know, check up on everyone
