Thread: So is this forum officially dead?

    So is this forum officially dead?

    Hi!

    So what’s going on? Not even the B/R thread is active anymore. Is everyone on Discord now, or what?

    Re: So is this forum officially dead?

    Hopefully not, if Im ever posting a report its gonna be here, although while I enjoyed the slower paced forum its a bit too stale, on the other hand there is not much to discuss for someone who has been around forever, the discussion on Discord // FB just reflects the evolution through time, fast, unstructured, mostly not worth participating in or reading through... Also the demographics of legacy changes in contrast to the revival of ~2010 and the veterans mostly present here were taken over by newer generation or just ceased to care... So.. Maybe?

    It's mix of things, Discord, Facebook, the prices pushing newer players out while older players have children and settle. I don't play as much as I use to and when I go in to play half the old guard is gone with no new faces. Once that would have bothered me, now it just feels normal.

    The harsh reality is that forums really started becoming obsolete about a decade ago, because as it turns out it is simpler to use social media to do the work of forums (see also Wizards shutting down their forums in ~2015 and r/magicTCG becoming its effective replacement, although admittedly that was 3-4 years later than it should have been).

    The survivors will be the larger forums and those that sell products (the latter because of ownership, really). Hosting costs are rather expensive as well, which doesn't help.

    Discord is annoying an incompetent, so I just don't talk about Legacy online anymore.
    At least here I can read other decks idly, with completely separate Discord/Facebook communities I'll never read about 90% of the decks in legacy ever again.
    Tusk up.
    (Not so) Current Decks: GB Elves, GW Maverick, GWb Maverick, LED Dredge, ANT, TES, Jund Storm.

    Magic players who use forums are dying.

    Kids these days don't even know what a forum is. "oh u mean a reddit thread? Insta story?"

    I miss the hell out of good forums. But then again I hardly post on the few that remain, so I'm part of the problem.

    I guess it's a combination of "don't have the time anymore", "when I do play I play with friends face-to-face" and "I'm so old and surly now that I have it all figured out, do my own think and don't really care what other people think about it".

    And it goes well beyond Magic forums, forums on all subjects have lapsed in favor of easier but far less valuable sites. Reddit and Facebook just spoon-feed you content, somehow that's easier than having to click on a forum and a thread. I hate it.

    Well, he was at least entertaining. The same people dug in to the same logical fallacies and biases are less so...

    I havent played Legacy in 5+ years, so I also barely come to the forum anymore. Im randomly on reddit and was on the goblin discord but im not active there either.

    Legacy got boring and stale to me and the poor handling of the banlist contributed to this. On top of that prices got rediculous and id definitely not pay 2000+€ just to play the one tournament a year that happens in germany...
    Got tired of Legacy and you like drafts? Try my Paupercube What?

    I haven't played Legacy for the last 2 years, but a couple of things changed in my live in the past month, which means I have more time for hobbies now. And it's funny, because I kept my cards and I actually spend about 2000€+ in the last weeks for Legacy staples, so here is at least one person who is motivated to play Legacy in the future ;)

    The End of an Era

    While I wasn't a frequent poster, or really visitor either, it's a little sad to see MTGSlavation now go. But the word is that that there will be a new forum made by the Admin there just not the same owners, which is likely good, because I don't think that "Curse Network," or whatever it was, did them any favors in the long run.

    Just makes me glad we still have our place here.

    That place is garbage. They are too strict and ban you for the most basic stuff
