That's a bad assumption. Currently only 71 members are Gold or above. This week there are around 100 active Silver members. At the end of last year, there would be about 220 to 230 active players each week. The amount of active players keeps dropping almost every week. This trend has been going on for several years now.
Just like any business, Eliters has fixed costs and ONLY so much income. Many special events were not receiving enough income to pay for their costs and have been adjusted.
Now with Yahoo possibly eliminating most of the games that eliters leagues play, there are new problems caused by that.
Eliters has been in business for over 14 years playing card and board games. I have been a member for nearly 8 years and have enjoyed playing in their special events and daily play with many regulars.
However the gaming world has changed over that time. Most of the people I talk to in the real world play more Video type games or play games on the smart phone and / or Tablets. Many of those are solo or played against the computer. Iíve seen on the news that many of these initially free games make a lot from selling clues or whatever to advance to higher and harder levels. Yahoo wants to grab a piece of the latest trends in gaming. I have read Yahoo postings on the games I play in both Facebook and Yahoo forums. Their posted plans are vague and have changed over time. I am now in a wait and see mode. From what Iíve read most of Yahoo resources will be dedicated to other style games. There is a place to post games you would like Yahoo to bring back, no promises are being made.
I would like to thank Issa for keeping Eliters alive during these rough times of the last few years.
I would also like to thank the TDís that spent their time and efforts to run the tourneys that I have played.
Just as in any Family, there has been problems with whatever. I prefer to remember the good things and times. As many of us older people, many things I have enjoyed are no longer around, I hope this does not happen to eliters. But everyone must realize that is a possibility.
Once Again, Thanks to ALL that have made my last eight years a little more fun.
