I honestly haven't noticed a huge difference. I like to play a lot of 1 vs 1 and there are plenty of games to choose from. The recent changes BigWham has made, plus Blake, well, color me super impressed. Seriously. Not sure how far along these were before the sale, but they are great changes and some LONG overdue. I am in this for the long haul, I love Risk and this is the best way to play it, except for the occasional live tourneys I play with KuchTheWiser and friends. HA and even then it's like a "speed game" that takes 4 hours. Heh who am I kidding, I love it. It will be 6 years for me on CC pretty soon and it's always been very good. Maybe I am in the minority here but I feel that as long as the core players (and there are a LOT) hang in, this will be the premier Risk site for the foreseeable future.

Oh, qwert. I like that the two things that move you to wake up in the morning are shaking your fist at the USA and shaking your fist at CC. :D

Agreed. Having 10.000 active players to play RISK with is more then enough for me. As long as I can play a quality game here ill stick around :)

as a TO i've noticed my tournaments take longer to fill. it's partly because KISS is moving through some less popular maps but mostly it's because many of the regulars have moved on.

As a troll I've noticed there are fewer people to annoy.

I joined CC back in high school and was very active for about 2-3 years before I was no longer able to keep up and slowly I lost interest all together. The one thing that kept me from completly forgetting about this site was the forum and the amazing and colorful individuals that keep it alive, but some of those individuals are no longer here and as the site loses those gravitating members it also loses it prestige. One thing that I noticed on the forum was the policy of ending heated arguments by locking threads. There's nothing wrong with this type of moderation however the individuals that would get in heated debate are also the passionate individual that kept this place fun. It also created an atmosphere of individuals feeling as if they were being singled out by mods.

I thinking the biggest challenge is how to keep users interested?
How do we help NR stay interested?
