@  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
@  Elwood : (27 September 2019 - 05:52 AM) I still come here everyday because this is still my homepage in Firefox! XD
@  Ezra : (25 September 2019 - 03:07 PM) I also miss the days the forums I used were more active :(
@  Fire Blazer : (15 September 2019 - 05:39 AM) I do kinda miss the days these forums were active :(
@  Ezra : (29 August 2019 - 04:14 PM) *BOX!!!*
@  kirant : (19 August 2019 - 12:49 PM) Huh. Bothammer time.

Because I know there's at least like 5 people that go to this forum that play it. And because I need even more reasons to continue forum addiction.

I recently made a Skull Servant deck that pulled off defeating Gravekeepers, somehow. It also managed to defeat two /Assault Mode dragons (in the same duel) and some other things.

I'm still losing all the time against Hieratics, Dark Worlds, Lightsworns, whatever that one deck with the Infernities is, and pretty much anything that can use lots of destruction effects while swarming, really.

Fortunately, I haven't had to deal with Evilswarm Beelzebub (or whatever it was called) yet, and for some strange reason I haven't dueled against Bujins at all despite how people kept hyping it as the new Tier 1 deck for the meta or something.

I've also taken a liking to Noble Knights and look forward to Noble Knight Percival coming soon. Bothers me how they have two Lancelots and two xyz Arthurs, though.

Oh, and this is amazing:

I believe in judgment of humans through their judgment of fiction, for nothing else tells better of their disposition freed from apprehension.

For some reason whenever I try to play skull servants it ends in failure because I always seem to duel dragon rulers (Next banlist. Why must you not come into effect until January?)

I've recently been play Heraldic Beast, a dark magician deck, and a one star deck. I do have a Dark World, Lightsworn, and Hieratic deck though.

Bujins are looking to be one of those top decks to play next format, due to some new support that isn't out yet, but confirmed A Torrential Tribute that acts like compulse + no summoning for two turns. Gravekeeper's is also going to be up there with Shaman, and their new support that can protect their cards. Yes, I do run a gravekeeper deck.

I should note that I play on DevPro and don't actually own all of these cards. I only have dark worlds irl.

Also, Yugioh4RealMen is amazing in general.

I don't own the cards I play with IRL either (well, there might be some I do have, but i'm too lazy to confirm them and even if I do have them I most likely don't have enough to reproduce even 30% of my digital decks, since I only bought physical cards in...ancient to medieval times. Like, when Lightsworn was the big, expensive meta deck everybody could screw over anyone with.) Mainly because well...shit's expensive. And I can use OCG-only or even unreleased cards online.

I'm also on Devpro, though I use DN as well. I have somewhat different decks on them, though. The main reason being that I include certain cards i'd not use on DN in my Devpro decks, simply because I can manually alter the artwork. (The reason why I don't use the cards I speak of on DN is because they look ugly to me. I can't put up with using ugly cards, no matter how beneficial they are to my deck.)

Speaking of next format, I see that Kristya and Mezuki are going to 3. I'm somewhat bothered by how Sacred Sword of Seven Stars is becoming limited(because I use it in a deck that has 0 dragon rulers. I don't use dragon rulers in any of my decks, really. Not sure why though.) but most of it seems beneficial enough for the game.

Pretty amazed they brought back Magician of Faith, though.
