1. Those who remain from the very beginning are fewer and fewer and fall into 3 basic camps: They have relaxed and become more casual in their play style and don't give a crap anymore. They are still trying to grind to stay ahead of everyone else. These folks care but have so much time, effort and money invested that they are often a bit biased in their thinking. They have become forum trolls. 2. I do enjoy reading the responses to your posts from all those who have no clue who you are or how long you have played. Those are popcorn worthy.
