@  xcrash1998 : (30 November 2019 - 11:07 PM) New fictional holiday "Index Day"
@  Fire Blazer : (28 November 2019 - 08:52 PM) yeah just guest bots and stuff I think :( we really were active once upon a time though...
@  kirant : (26 November 2019 - 03:48 PM) No invasion. I imagine a lot of guest bots visiting for indexing purposes.
@  xcrash1998 : (26 November 2019 - 02:15 PM) How is most people online at 959 for the 8th of October of this year? Is that right? Did I miss something or was there somekind of spambot invasion?
@  xcrash1998 : (26 November 2019 - 02:06 PM) I know what you mean, it gets awkard to post something unrelated to the current conversation, and even if somebody picks up on it, it would just become a huge mess in the c hatbox if a multitude of groups talk about different topics.
@  Fire Blazer : (10 November 2019 - 11:45 PM) especially better imo if you want to update on a topic but like only occasionally (e.g. a project you're working on or a let's play of a game)
@  Fire Blazer : (10 November 2019 - 11:44 PM) it's hard for me to explain precisely why but forums just like work better for meaningful discussion over a longer period of time ig
@  Fire Blazer : (10 November 2019 - 11:44 PM) but that's def just not hte same ig, idk
@  Fire Blazer : (10 November 2019 - 11:44 PM) yeah, you can also kind of respond at your own pace on forums. Discord conversations are often like... it's awkward to respond to something that happened a while ago, especially if the server is active, but even just in general. since you sort of need to keep track of multiple conversations at once at times, and it's not like it has a good reply/quote system ala forums, closest thing really is to copy/paste or screenshot the text you're responding to and then type a response below
@  Elwood : (09 November 2019 - 11:29 AM) Adding on to what's been said, I just enjoy the order and structure of the forums. You can look through the threads and know exactly what people are talking about. Conversation get lost and buried on discord which is why I'm not a big fan of it.
@  kirant : (06 November 2019 - 05:31 AM) I enjoy that part of forums too. They become niche communities where you can have very specialized conversations as opposed to the cluttered mess in Discord.
@  Ezra : (31 October 2019 - 01:17 AM) Yeah, part of me wishes I could go back to the times forums were more prevalent. I really enjoyed how even several different forums based off the same franchise could feel so different. It's not like what we now is bad though, I just feel nostalgic for old times.
@  Fire Blazer : (30 October 2019 - 06:39 AM) also forums in general are just not as prevalent, there are so many other ways to interact these days, like Twitter, FB, Tumblr, etc., where you can just throw your thoughts into the void. I think that's the real issue and that the only people rly interested in forums these days are either super dedicated to whatever they're about, have a specific reason/need to (e.g. support forums), or grew up with them and are thus attached to the idea enough to continue to try and use them (this was kinda me for a while lol but things happen, I couldn't keep it up forever)
@  Fire Blazer : (30 October 2019 - 06:36 AM) I've posted on SF for various reasons ofc but in terms of like making friends and stuff it's p. much just been smaller groups/forums, yeah. mainly FES
@  Elwood : (27 October 2019 - 10:08 PM) Only reason I'm even on Serenes was because I had hacking questions. @Ezra yeah I figured it must be an age thing. I've been called an old man by many a child because I use Facebook.
@  kirant : (26 October 2019 - 09:39 PM) It's strange. I don't think I've ever posted on Serenes...period. I've always been a fan of smaller forums.
@  Ezra : (26 October 2019 - 05:49 AM) I think it's because a lot of newer FE players didn't frequent forums growing up. And those that do probably end up on Serenes.
@  Elwood : (25 October 2019 - 07:30 AM) I would love to revitalize this place I'm just not sure how that would be done. I mean with how main stream FE seems to have become I'm honestly surprised we don't have more members.
@  Fire Blazer : (21 October 2019 - 08:04 PM) tfw u not coming here results in not seeing a PM from last month T_T ok gonna try and check at least every couple weeks now even if there's nothing here, lol...
@  Fire Blazer : (21 October 2019 - 07:54 PM) I come here almost never because I've fallen out of habit and basically just accepted the forums are dead :( it's neat you come here every day tho

Man do these games look so good, the game looks to have a really nice RPG style and lovely animations.

I'm always excited by new Pokemon stuff, but this looks fantastic, they finally stepped it up a bit this year by giving the game a major overhaul that it needed. Mega evolutions, a whole host of new pokemon and game mechanics await

Not in the slightest. Metagame kind of screwed up with Generation 5, becoming more about team composition that it was strategy and in battle tactics. I have found myself easily and mindlessly able to stall out people who don't plan for a stall team opponent whereas in Gen 4, they stood a chance at least. Opposite goes on the other end: I don't stand a hope if someone builds an anti-stall team, whereas in Gen 4, I could sometimes work my way back into the game. The addition of Scizor being able to OHKO Jirachis and Metagross with 1 Pursuit is getting into the stupid category.

lol metagame

I am really looking forward to this game. I'm liking the changes they're making like horde battles and catching Pokémon will also give you exp. And the game looks great aesthetically as well.

I hope they put a challenge mode in this game. That would be great. And it would be even greater if they made it available before you beat the game.

^

I am REALLY not interested in starting a new file over just for Challenge mode. I don't enjoy that. After the game is done I want to screw around in the post-game a little bit and that's about it. >_>;

anyhow the game is getting an overhaul as mentioned and that's cool

something else that needs an overhaul is this:

QUOTE
friend codes.


urgh

I'll add people I guess but >_<;

tbh I probably won't get the game right away unless by some chance I get more money, otherwise I'm in debt like $700 sooooo yeah lol no

regardless despite me preferring the retro games yet, not really liking the new gen designs, etc., it's Pokemon so I can hardly hate on it and I'll probably get it evenutally... *shrug*

Well i thought about pre-ordering it but the pre-order bonuses aren't very good

so I decided against it, I'll pick it up when I have money to spare (which is not now or anytime soon lol)

With the leaks that came out I can say that I am totally getting Froakie. Greninja is boss.

Charizard getting two mega-evolutions is cool, but if the other two starters don't get two as well I will be somewhat pissed. I heard that it is unlikely the other two will which is why I am a bit pissed at it.
