Many people built their character's identities around the dominion and its activities.
I don't believe this is entirely true. There was a lot more to these characters than just their faction affiliation. Many characters, regardless of their allegiance, possess multifaceted personalities and depth beyond their factional ties.
At some point, I noticed a shift where friendships within factions appeared more centered on political ideologies rather than genuine connections. So much so that I did not feel like there was a point in trying to continue the story of a character who only wanted to learn how to treat herself better. There seemed to be very little interest in the character's wellbeing, or her journey towards self-acceptance. Moreover, there is a notable presence of other characters grappling with their own issues, and it feels like their wellbeing isn't receiving the attention or support it deserves.
I urge everyone, whether consciously or unconsciously making assumptions, to consider that there might be unexplored depths to every character. I understand the staff's decision, and sincerely hope that we can all become more mindful of how our roleplay impacts fellow players from this point onwards.
I loved the Dominion, the storylines related to it, and the efforts invested by both staff and characters. The effort and thought put into developing these characters are commendable. I hope that you are all able to find reasons to keep playing them, and that there will keep being ways for you to contribute to the community in ML.
