I wonder just what real numbers Kano is seeing in players being active now compared to a year ago. And I wonder if they would like to comment on why they think most of us long time players have noticed a drop in player participation. If it is not partly due to the raids, and the change in how the arena is done, just what do they attribute it too? Making the raids random was a great idea, but apparently it will remain an event. Seems like the players who have stuck with Kano for such a long time should not have their ideas dismissed so easily without a reasonable explanation. It makes it seem like greed is the primary reason an event would be kept that brings boredom to many of us, and that it is pointless to keep letting Kano know what we do and do not like about the game.
