As I have mentioned on here, I too played modern war. It was a great game until gree purchased it and ran it into the ground, just like ds. The parallels are amazing.
The funny thing is how people keep saying, "just give them time", but don't listen when those of is who have experienced gree show them its a futile effort. I even liked the little link to Sven post in a who thread about all of the games over the past years that gree has killed and shut down. You pull out the one gree comment and make it sound good without all of the context.
These forums even have become a joke with this gamesage thing and their inability to actually moderate the forums. There are plenty of examples of how bad those are as well.
I still play, of course, no money spent since gree took over but I rarely spend any time on the game now. I have moved on to another one that has sucked me in(and my money I'm sad to say). But the day is drawing near when I won't even get on. I've even missed picking up my free stamina about 5 times this week. That hadn't happened a total of five times in the past year.
I was in a top 3 guild on server 2 for months. We have had people quitting regularly now for weeks. Another but the dust just last Sunday.
Its all just a shame. Predictable, but still a shame.
