Yeah, we could have probably just updated the first post with more information about the Madison scene. I don’t think there’s really much of a reason for hostility between the scenes outside of a few people not getting along, but like you said that’s inevitable.
Honestly I’m indifferent to whether we have a separate thread or not, we definitely don’t have enough SRK users in our scene to generate more traffic than just sporadic posts, unless people here decide to start using SRK, which I don’t see happening. I don’t post here often because I don’t really know the few of the regular posters left from the Milwaukee scene, and don’t really have much to say really since conversations in the thread are either talking about gatherings I can’t make it to because of work, not living in the area, and not actually owning a vehicle or just people talking shit.
I’d personally like to see more crossover between the scenes, but we don’t even play the same games for the most part. We play mostly Marvel, and then shitty anime button mashers and a good bit of our scene just plays Smash. But yeah, most of our players would just rather go to Chicago to play Marvel since that’s where the competition is in the area. That’s basically it.
Having a separate thread won’t solve this, but I’d say just let it rock and see what happens. If this thread just becomes inactive and dies, welp we weren’t using the WI thread anyways so it doesn’t really matter.
