No you can’t, when Battle Dawn first released no one used youtube, even for most of OC when BD was in it’s prime youtube was much smaller and there weren’t many gaming channels at all to advertise a game like BD.
Either way, doesn’t matter to me which game is more popular, there’s a lot of popular things that suck.
BD is superior in every way, I’ll never find another persistent browser based strategy game as immersive as BD has been for me. If I still had time I’d probably still play but duty calls so gg.
You can’t really compare 2 different genres and the games were eras apart, can’t really compare since the net has evolved so much in the decade BD has been out.
