@  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

Elibe was really unpopular in Japan; the target market for Fire Emblem games. And plot-wise, there's nothing to explore after Sword of Seals, considering Roy brought around world peace or something.

...Actually, there really wasn't anything to do plot-wise with Elibe after FE6. Blazing Sword was completely pointless. :/

I disagree with the whole completely pointless thing. Realize that Blazing Sword was also made to attract the worldwide audience into the games rather than just be a way to extend the continent. Maybe Elibe was unpopular in japan, but they could easily make a 3rd Elibe game to help attract the worldwide audience again after the incident with the poor SD sales and FE12 probably not getting a worldwide release.

Elibe may of not been popular in japan, but the western audience(including myself) LOVES Elibe.

Japan saw the Elibe games as a step back in the mechanics due to the lack of full Canto and Skills. I would be willing to bet that if they remade Sword of Seals eventually with the better limitations of the 3DS, it would be more successful.

But, I'd rather have a brand new FE than a reskin of an old one, even FE4 which happens to be my favorite.

And I think this is about all that gives the rumour life. The remakes of the 1st and 2nd were IMO to bring the international crowd to speed more than anything.

There hasn't been a remake of the second game yet. Which I would actually prefer over a new Elibe game... Also over Tellius and possibly Magvel one.

Sword of Seals was actually supposed to be localized for the international market, but it sold too badly in Japan. Story-wise, there's absolutely nothing to develop in Elibe. Everything is tied together. It's the same reason that another Magvel or Tellius game will likely not be made.

Fire Emblem doesn't sell very well on the international market anyways; Japan is their primary target market. IS would be shooting themselves in the foot by marketing a third Elibe game.

I'm not understanding, FE7 occurs before FE6, chronologically, so it's a prequel, there doesn't need to be anything to do with Elibe after FE6 if Blazing Sword takes place before it, is there?

Back to the point, it's a joke, nothing's going to happen, people just have to have their fun

Nothing's going to happen unless I get in there and give people the shit treatment until they localize games and start making new one's.

P.S. you know what would be nice? A NEW ****ING GAME INSTEAD OF A REMAKE OR PREQUEL OR SEQUEL

last one we had was FE9, then FE8 (so I was happy getting two totally new games in a row), then FE6, then FE4, then FE1, the rest are all somehow related to a predecessor which isn't terrible but it adds to the fact that more than ever, I'd like a new game

I guess I'm greedy aren't I

Just more proof that everyone is running out of ideas. Old series which gain cult followings die off for a long time then get picked back up 20 or so years later. True originallity is long gone, so wave it good bye and just be ready to settle for the new old crap.
