This. You could actually say that the game was actually dying before this year but suddenly it was getting livelier in fantasia. Mega was even packed at some point and even PvP actually had people more often. But since gameguard was re-introduced well players just went away and those who could actually play even with gameguard decided to quit too due to the drop in numbers. You could say it was a chain effect.
