Heya guys, lots of people told me that they are focusing BBG more than BBO and they all told me that they have given up BBO. So why are they giving up BBO

    Simple answer:
    The original incarnation, Battle Bears Ultimate, unexpectedly turned out to be a failure to them in 2014. Three years later, regardless of what they've done to change it, they likely still mindlessly think that the game was doomed from the start and will forever be a failure, despite us trying our hardest to tell them otherwise.

    That, and they probably realized that BBG is simply the better game in the eyes of most of the fanbase.

    So why can't they shut down BBO or the new BBU, and make a new BBO?

    Because BBG is better and BBU was a flop, the presssure was most likely too much for ben when releasing the mildly successful game after 2 years of not doing any work or having any standards. or ben realised that BBR had a much more successful start (getting 1 mil downloads whilst bbo got 100,000, ben stated that he wanted to make a billion people happy and when he did with 1 million people very quickly before the 100,000 from bbo simply put was lackluster.) and dropped the whole thing altogether after a few updates.

    Because it would repeat the same cycle of releasing a game, active for a few months, 1 update a year and leaving it to die just to re release it again.

    Shutting down BBO and making yet another version of it would be a huge risk, it just wouldn't be worth it for anyone.

    The only way they could possibly get the game out of its destiny of eternal failure would be to remove the BBO incarnation entirely and re-release the original BBU with all of its bugs fixed and previously unreleased modes included because of just how much fun the overall package was back in 2014. If that manages to bring back old players (and I'm damn sure it would), that's when they'll likely consider making new content for it and keeping the activity consistent alongside BBG as originally planned.

    Then why people loves BBG? I mean, their speeds are like slow, and graphics, skins, and weapons needs improvements, and what makes BBG better than BBU or BBO?

    It all boils down to personal taste, really. Though, the whole "BBG vs. BBU/O" debate has gone down several hundred times and this thread probably isn't the best place to start yet another one.

    If you want to know why BBG is a beloved game, go look around a few dozen BBG-related threads and I'm sure you'll find quite a few posts consisting of people explaining their full thoughts.

    SkyVu hasn't really been adding any major updates to BBG anyway, nor have they been on the forums. I think the real question is if SkyVu has given up on BB in general/us.
