Actually that’s quite incorrect. While there were a few CX members at ON, they all left because they couldn’t fit in. I honestly can’t think of any people who go to both forums other than me and Yuki Yagami. Everyone else at ON either doesn’t care about CX or doesn’t even know it exists. While it’s rather shocking that they wouldn’t know about CX’s existance, it’s more of the reason of not being interested in KOF anymore. If you noticed, no one even talks about KOF at ON anymore. But the forums are still pretty active because all the oldschool members hang out and chill and stuff. So basically from a KOF forum, it turned into a coffee shop.
I hang out at ON because I’ve known everyone there for almost 9 years although we talk about random shit and not KOF. CX on the other hand, I admit that I troll there simply because most of the members make me want to facepalm or bang my head on the desk…
So long story short, I see ON and CX as:
ON: starbucks where you sit with friends and chat
CX: a circus
Although I’m not blaming the site, I blame it on the majority of the current members. But one thing for sure is that both sites don’t deliver in KOF strats if that’s what you’re looking for.
As for the history of ON’s lack of an active forum, it’s mainly because of the forum move. Started anew and people just didn’t feel like registering again especially when all the good strats are now gone.
