You mentioned that the approval or whatever of warring hasn't been high and feedback has been poor.
Can I be the first to say that I love DGz warring with all my heart, and I'm sure everyone will be sad to see it go so soon. Warring on DGz is easily the best yugioh i've ever experienced in my decade plus playing it, and more than half that playing it competitively.
I'm also sure I speak for everyone on my team at least that this experience has been wonderful, and I feel like it's been handled and run very well. The stats, all the data gathering, and all that is amazing. Don't get discouraged there's so many people that appreciate all the hard work you do, even though they're not the most vocal ones. <3
I hope you change your decision to pause warring, or at least feel better about having done it; because it's been great so far.
