Gunrunning was my end.
Not that it was bad, I actually liked the new gameplay.
Not because it was expensive, although the research and MOC requirements were over the top.
Not even because it wasn't my style, although it's not at all; not everyone enjoys everything.
It was actually the Oppressor. It was a logical step in where we've been going. For the last year, almost every car came with armour on it. Things were getting sillier and sillier, the Shotaro, Ruiner 2K and then the Oppressor... It was obvious it was going to be everywhere, being overpowered, grief-ready, and frankly stupidly out of place. As someone who had no interest in all teh armoured cars, the silly movie/TV inspired cars, and generally just sorta enjoyed bopping around town it was the final straw.
It's not fun, anymore. It's not even able to hide behind a facade of "realism" (for what it's worth), it's just a mess. Vehicles have to have a gimmick. Races are stunt-or-nothing. Matchmaking fails. Lobbies fail. It's just a big kludged together mess.
I did GR for about a week before I realized it wasn't fun.
I didn't even bother with SR.
It's over. I can't complain too much, I had an unprecedented nearly 4 year run of the same game almost daily. That's amazing, but all things must close.
