the reason people say the world is bad is because its speed 1, so its not as fun as faster worlds, but takes less time and effort. Therefore, most of the "elite" players have the time to play faster servers, and so there are less players and lower quality on average. This means there is less competition, hence people say the world is bad.
As Brir said there are some great players here; just not quite as many as some faster worlds, although there have been much much worse ones in the past.
As speed 1s go this isn't bad at all.
