I'll give you the real reason we declared on TUBA, basically it all came down to our members being bored to death and lacking the passion to continue playing...
We then decided just to declare on TUBA to spice things up, which worked out for about 2 months or so, after which the people just quit anyways.
Well when players was even thinking about quitting you should have tried to find replacement players. Even if they was newbs as a newb can be trained into a damn fine player if he/she has a good teacher. CTRL was a tribe of fine players and it would have been very easy for them to both replace the old players and train the new players. But then I suspect you guys didn't or wouldn't put the effort into such an endeavor.
