Actually this game got way less competive for a few years straight. I miss the days more people cared enough to make forum topics and carry long and deep hatred.
Power to emotion!
Aye, sure, competition on most world's decreased as a result of player's leaving. However, I believe competition on pro world's still remain intense, if not intenser.
Noticed nothing of that and I am playing E1 right now. Or perhaps Galaxy 1 is now the pro world?
