Apparently so lol Or maybe just this section is. If I end up getting into the game at some point down the line I'll probably be posting in here asking questions and sh*t so maybe that will change the inactivity - to a degree at least.
Anyhow, from an outside perspective it sort of does seem like the popularity of this game has shrunk. Again, outside perspective but that's just what I've seen. Not really many people streaming it or talking about it in regular circles from what I can recall lately.
When pubg was popping csgo only had like peak of 300k and active count 150k or so, right now as I post this 500k are playing when this is the same time 100-150k were playing year or two ago. Trading and skin gambling dead? Yes for sure. The game? No. Though some have different opinions on dead and not dead. An example of a dead game would be H1Z1 lol.
