How'd that happen? I mean, how'd you organise a movement like that without a forum?

I think it mostly started when erepublik admins changed how they advertised the game and started attracting a different kind of player.

2008/2009 a lot of people were uni students, or came from other games like cyber nations (Like me) so you had mostly nerdy guys that loved all the bureaucracy and sim.

Sometime around 2011 onwards they seemed to shift to Facebook etc advertising and attracted a more general rabble of people, many that just wanted to click a button and not do all the sim stuff.
The general consensus/narrative among these anti-forum lot was that the forum users were elitist and didn't want to share power, which for some parties that was 100% correct.

It has definitely been a slow death, I've been playing since Dec 2008, and I've seen it very very slowly decline. In 2009 when I ran the Navy we had like 1k active UK soldiers, 3k if you include Home Guard, then Legion in 2011-12ish we had 300odd active fighters but with the other MUs we had maybe 2 or 3 times that total. Now it's much much less something like less than 100 players actually fighting each day.

I think, if the admins had left the game as it was before all the changes and just generally improve things we wouldn't have seen the decline we have now. The game is essentially just a cash cow for them now.
