Really? It seemed pretty friggin dead during the summer too.[/quote]
Of course not, so many people were enjoying the Sword Art Online event. It was obviously a good Anime that got a good number of players during the summer.
KMS has no updates that were spectacularly good yet, its going back to the cycle where everyone is going to be able to solo everything again. Then they are going to have another damage cap update then no one will be able to kill anything. Then they will introduce new equipment and revamp new characters. But then again if that were the case, KMS would have gotten something by now. So I do believe GMS is going to be dead for quite a while.
