    er..... Yeah?  considering it's the first reply in over 24 hrs?  ;)

    Forums are a dying art, the young don't use them, preferring reddit for most conversations.

    So many places to converse about games and this site really isn't the premier MMORPG information source anymore.

    Still the best forums however in my book.

    Any idea why the youngsters don’t use forums anymore? To me its still the best way to dicuss things on a somewhat deeper level.

    LacedOpium: "So the question that begs to be asked is, if you are not interested in the game mechanics that define the MMORPG genre, then why are you playing an MMORPG?"

    Reddit, Twitter, Facebook, I assume is their preferred discussion places, perhaps Discord?

    Or maybe they just don't have deep discussions?  :)

    I agree... they have already used a different medium instead of Forums. 

    I feel that after a few years, something else will be replacing those too :)
