As far as RISK goes it is the greatest. You won't find a better site. I think what has happened is that older players who loved the board game used to be involved on this web-site--it was great--but it just got boring after playing so much and real life takes over. So many of the virtual friends I had made on this site have left or basically barely play anymore (including me).
The younger generation has so many gaming options on line now that CC is just something they might try out for a while, get bored with and move on.
If you loved RISK as a youngster and have had access to the internet as an adult you have ran across this site by now. It was these players that made this site such a great place.
I have been averaging less than ten games active for well over six months now. I have tried to find the love of this game, but it just is not the same and does not seem to come back to the way it was.
Just my thoughts of the day.

To me the site is what it is. While it is fun to play I do not make it more then what it is. People will always come and go but this is not a game like everquest or guild wars.
As long as there is another person to play I will still enjoy it and CC friends are not the same as real life friends and circles.
So yes people grow bored and move on but that does not make the site better or worse because people move on. Thats like saying life sucks because people die.

Only reason I'm still here is for live chat and the forums. Forums like we have here are hard to come by in the gaming world, and it's the only real source of pride this site has left.

Like someone said above--The site is the site--it really has not changed in any crazy way. I think if I found the site for the first time today--I would love it. I personally have worn out any love for the game/site from playing too many games and losing too many friends. We used to have so much fun--even enough to get each others phone numbers and chat about CC and real life things. It has all faded now. I did gain a real life friend from this site and our families get together once in a while--I just wish I would like it again, but have not found a way to enjoy the site and even contemplate leaving. I let most of my tourneys go that I was running--and if it was not for the 200th I probably would have at least taken a vacation from the site--probably need to do that.
