Noctezuma has long left the ring and he now leads a peaceful existence in Clint City. Nevertheless, the longing for lucha libre still burns within him, which is why he decides to get back in the game to give his life a new purpose.
The current champion – El Divino – has become unpopular, with the press and public accusing him of picking only the easiest opponents and never having to wrestle to his full potential. His manager sees it fit to organize an exhibition match between him and Noctezuma as a means to boost the former's popularity.
Noctezuma accepts the challenge in the hope he will feel alive once more on the ring and show the world that he isn't done yet.

Backing up everything staff do, oddly, doesn't create a nice portrait for a mod.
This is a game players put money (and a lot of time) into, and typically you expect something in return for those things, or at least features that work.
A one-off mistake is excusable, but countless issues that go unresolved are not. The least asked for is communication - what is happening with the event? It is ridiculous that I had to personally message an admin to find out.
Yes, we appreciate the work done by staff, and everyone makes mistakes. But something Boostr needs to do is learn to admit it's mistakes, and communicate.

Hello, the prizes will be soon distributed and you will have news next week.
> What's happening with the Huracan event? It's been handled terribly and no news has been given since it finished...
Mods dont always back up what staff say... historically they have not always done so. When UR had a bigger base it was a lot easier and more common for mods to post as players first, mods second. As the base of UR eroded in the past 2 years or so EN mods, with a directive from EN admin, were told to represent the company first before representing themselves as players. This is just the natural progression of how the EN community has developed. Insecurity leading to a more defensive stance taken by a group. Whereas in years past the product had so much support that the product spoke for itself, rather than having to actually talk it up.
It kind of feels like communism- they don't like what you say? fired/silenced
they like what you say? hired/given power
Constructive criticism? ignored
Promises not met? well we did our best! (lol)
At this point I just want these people to learn from their mistakes. You can only ignore your fanbase and treat them like dirt for so long before they turn on you. And it's not to say we didn't try, lots of us made an effort for civil discussion, constructive criticism and patience- but look where it got us. Tbh, this game is toast and I don't think UR can/cares to salvage it anymore. They're gonna put the minimum effort in and milk as much money out of it as they can until there aren't enough players to even justify hosting a server
I love when people stick things inside my mouth.
I never said I was happy about this. I never said it was a good thing. I never said I "backed their silence". So why would you say that I am?
What did I say? I answered 1 question from a player who is also on my friends list. I tried to stay positive. And then I stated why we remember the bad things more easily. I never said they were excusable. I didn't tell him he was wrong or to be quiet.
He asked when the last time was they did ANYTHING right. I get really upset over people using absolutes and over-extending the amount towards which something is going right or wrong. There's a huge difference, to me, if you say, "UR fails at everything" and "UR has not been at the top of their game recently." This has nothing to do with me backing UR, and everything to do with someone insulting the game I love -- as a PLAYER.
If you love the game and care about improving it, you shouldn't stifle discussion around the staff's incompetence to emphasize the minor positives they have accomplished in the grand scheme.
It's not productive to get defensive,instead we need to be addressing the reasons people are unsatisfied and changing things. Do you think it's gonna change a player's opinion if he/she already feels that UR does nothing right? We all love the game, but those of us who care to see it improve are trying to make our voices heard instead of plugging our ears and putting g on a blindfold saying "everything is awesome"
Many months ago, maybe a year ago, the community was hitting the panic button with the basic comment that the game was dying
those voices were ignored or played down by some admin... and instead was responded to with "the game is doing better than it has ever done before... it is better than a few years before.... it has big plans.... the numbers look good..... there is a plan to recruit... the numbers look good.... the numbers look good. etc etc etc etc."
whether or not they truly believed it or not who knows. or maybe they hoped it was true and if they said it often enough it would become true. but it obviously was not how the community felt. this created a conflict of sorts
slowly the community dwindled as the months went by, punctuated by a mass exodus shortly after the launch of the new website....
since then I have seen the number of players online above 3000 once! and i have now started to see on a regular basis of less than 1000 players online
this makes me sad since i did once truly enjoy this game.
obviously the admins of this game know where this game is heading.... the choice is up to them. do they 1) pull out all stops to try and salvage it??? which requires them to fully acknowledge that the game is not doing so hot and has not been doing so hot for over a year or 2) ride it out to the finish, continue as they are doing so, run the site as long as revenue they take it pays the bills and wages before pulling the plug once it is unviable?
