Yep. Unless you hung out in IRC chatroom you weren’t going to get the scoop on anything. It’s fucking stupid. Nothing but respect for the Cannons but, in what blue hell do you fucking ask twitter if the forums are worth saving? They spent more time talking to the people who didn’t use the forums than to the people who did/do.
But that’s also been everything. Everybody wondering wtf is going on with Evo prices. Can we get some good communication on it? Nah. Great, good times. Everybody has been told for years that to make it to Evo your game needs to meet certain qualifications but MK9 got in before it was released and BBTag made it when it was out for 2 months before Evo.
Character has to be out for a month before they’re legal at Evo? Nah its cool SF5, we’ll let Ibuki and Rog rock 2 weeks out.
SRK is spending 24k a year to run some forums, lets close it down before letting the community figure out if they can do something about it.
Its…a whole lot of a whole lot. Doing the community grind is a pain in the ass. But you need to cycle people in and out as to prevent burn out. People grow up and lose interest. That’s fine and pretty natural in all sorts of hobbies. Just make sure that things are being handed down properly. Switch it over to people who care and won’t do dumb ass shit with it.
