Yep. And w/ that, the group war came to an end. However, it seems that the price was a desolate BABA and TRC. BA attempted to start over and created BALD, and that is doing alright. But it isn't doing nearly as well as either BABA or TRC did in their glory days. I think the most active groups right now are SCO (Smogon Creators' Organization) and TPR, which is not at all what it was like when you left. I think Pumpking (Don's new group) is a close third. There is one group, Reactivity of Metals, that seems to be fairly active as well, but, since I am not a member, I don't really keep tabs on it.
Well, the group war ended. A ton of random groups were created to be neutral or exclusive ones. Those are now the dominant groups. Most of the groups have very little activity. And most importantly, Battlestar got banned.
