I've had guild members quit, and I've heard former influencers say something similar, but many people are leaving because CG is forcing you to use certain squads in order to be competitive. The highest point in the game in my opinion was when it didn't matter where you were ranked in the arena, you may face a different team every time you battle. I get that CG has to make money, but release characters that mix up the arena. You'll get people that focus on Separatist, or Clones, or Empire, etc. Make it so one can beat one, but can't beat another. Mix it up so it's not the same 2 teams in Arena. Arena has been such a big part of the game, and until this gets fixed I think we're going to continue to see the same problem of people leaving and the game slowly losing traction.
