@  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

Rematch of Super Bowl XLII. REALLY pumped for this one, don't know why.

Guess it's because I hated that the Packers were in it last year and I was bummed the Vikings didn't make it the year before. Anyways...

Who you rooting for? I'm personally going for the Giants, because I really like Eli Manning. Should be a good game regardless though.

I dont care as long as I get my Dirty Eli Manningwich topped with the oh so special New England Clam Chowder Tom Brady Gravy. (Name the reference for 20.)

But I dont like the Patriots, so Giants all the way.

I'm glad that the Giants won (I was rooting for them), but honestly the Pats should have one at the end. There were three or four incomplete passes in the last drive, and they should've HAD that Hailmary.

In all honesty it was a pretty crappy game until the last quarter. IDK, it didn't have that exciting feel to it.

I'm obviously bummed that my home team lost, but eh. I kind of predicted it from the first quarter (a safety? are you serious?).

And I was swearing my head off at the TV at all those dropped passes on the Pats' last possession. The hailmary was also freaking close...if it had bounced a foot higher Gronk would have gotten it, I bet.

Bleh. Ah well.

Yeah. There were a couple cool catches in the Giant's first drive but most of the first 3 quarters were uneventful. Last quarter was fun to watch though, and it was a close game, which is always good.

Those drops really hurt the Pats, though.

Yeah the last few plays were intense, I don't even like football and I got a little pumped rooting for NE just because I like to root for the underdogs so they can make awesome comebacks XD

Anyway, I'm not big on the SB compared to most people but IMO it's more about all the hype before it, the entertainment (commercials concerts etc... and I heard the commercials were generally not nearly as good this time though I didn't get to watch many) etc. than the game, I mean it's hard for every super bowl to be an awesome game unless it's rigged.

...Though I wouldn't be too surprised if there was some rigging going on in some cases. Then again this isn't basketball we're talking about, hmm....

Yeah. Usually the Super Bowls are rather good games, because it's usually two teams riding momentum that are pretty damn good to begin with...sometimes you do get a Super Bowl where one team clearly dominates the game, such as XLV last year. Just seemed like the Packers were always in control.

I'm happy you guys actually have a topic for this, the folks at TEB aren't very enthusiastic about football.

In my opinion, it was a fairly good game.
The sideline catch by the Giants was amazing.

Well a lot of it has to do with hype. You're excited over every little thing and have so much anticipation and ultimately there's going to be to some good plays here and there when people score so said anticipation is filled a little bit. But it's not like people can force the super bowl games to be so much better than the real games--from the outsider perspective, you can only change the environment of the game, not the game itself.

Indeed. I'm not saying that the Super Bowl is always a good game. I happen to be a huge football history geek and I know there have been many SB's that have been blowouts. 1985, 1994 and 1998 were all blowouts.

IIRC, the 1985 contest ended up Chicago 55, New England 10.

Oh my.

I dislike being in GMT+1 when needing to be up the next day. Otherwise, the game was fun to watch.

No Man Utd. - Chelsea though.

^Aye, I can see how that'd stink. Ah, well, timezones hurt most of us in some way or another at some point in time. Then again the U.S. dominates a lot of things so it's probably easier to live in the U.S.'s various timezones than elsewhere >_>

I agree with Blazer though, about it being more hype than anything. Even on my highschool team, all people really give a shit about is being pumped up biggrin.gif

The game was in the US, in a US league, so I'm not that surprised. It's just harder to watch it by myself at that hour. Last year I saw it with a few friends.

I always expected the Giants to win that game, and quite honestly, I was surprised about why they weren't favored to win that game. I rooted for them the entire time and it was a really good game. Sure it wasn't a nonstop highlight reel or shootout, but it was close throughout. It got a lot more interesting at the end, like most championship games should. I didn't see any of the commercials because I watched an online stream. Nevertheless, I always viewed them as overhyped and nothing special anyway, so no big loss.
