    Unhappy Dead Forum... No longer a dying forum

    So sad that what once was a thriving forum with many great people posting regularly, has turned into a once a day at best forum to read (and this is only to find 1 post worth reading most of the time now...). For you new people this forum used to be full of people responding to threads, creating threads, sharing info, having a good time, and many people having to visit every few hours just to stay caught up. The few changed everything for the many...

    The game philosophy has changed over the past half year. The change to the forum is just a reflection of that. The quality of a game and the quality of its forum are usually correlated.

    The day of mass disappearances had something to do with it.

    You are correct about the forums slowing down to a 'once a day' read. I work night shift here in the states and my job is slow at times. So I find myself on these forums a lot! It seemed like 2 months ago there was a never ending supply of new material to read every time you refreshed the page.
    I have definitely noticed the forums being a slower place. Especially in the last week. But I am not too worried about it. The next LTQ will come out in a few hours and everyone will start posting about it and everyone will spark up conversations again. This current LTQ was a little easier than others, so there wasn't as much research to be done or questions to be asked. Not to mention the 8 day period we had to complete it(which was great).
    The forum will always have a few slow points here and there. If you ever pay attention to the people viewing the forum, there can be hundreds at a time. But only a few post anything. So the forum is still a happening place, people are just being quiet as there is not as many things to discuss.

    I think part of it is also the fact that guilds now have their own chat rooms outside of this forum. If I have a question about the game or want to share info... I typically just keep it within the guild rather than coming on here.

    That is what I was going to say.

    I still check in here just about every day. And tonight I actually started a new thread here. Maybe it will get people excited? Certainly MoC engaging in our first KA "war" outside the guild battles is exciting for us. The other guys don't seem to like it so much, lol. But they brought it on themselves. :P

    Have you guys also noticed less activity in the game? I'm camping at level 50, and used to be attacked several times a day. Nothing has changed on my side, but I'm attacked about twice a week now. Maybe less players passing through level 50, so less new players?

    @SpikedPunch - my guess is this: the more established players in the Northern Hemp are enjoying Summer. It also used to be that around the big school holidays (which may not have started yet in some countries) you'd get a lot of new players hitting everything in sight, but this may not be so evident now as the gap between a fresh player (unless a heavy gemmer) and someone who has been playing consistently for a few months is probably too great to encourage attacks.

    Seasons definitely play a part. Warmer weather and longer days...people do indeed go outside.
