Perfect World Consolidating Forums

On May 4th, Perfect World Entertainment will merge all forums into a single location. The changeover affects all games in Perfect World’s library except for those that are already on the new system (APB, Swordsman, etc). If you only play one of our games, this migration will positively affect you as well. Beforehand, we were […]


Who Needs Proper Forums? Hi-Rez Has Reddit

I know what you’re thinking: “Omali, forums are for casuals. Hardcore developers prefer to use social networking sites who risk suddenly becoming irrelevant and unpopular.” I know this because that message is tied to a rock and thrown through my bedroom window once or twice a week (email is for casuals). Luckily, Hi-Rez has a […]

WWII Online Removed From By Cornered Rat Software

You may not have noticed that World War II Online suddenly went missing from earlier today. The main game page for WWII Online and the forum directory became inaccessible, although threads were not deleted and can still be reached and posted in with direct links. The removal came with no immediate comment by either […]

I Love A Good Conspiracy Theory: LOTRO Forums Hacked?

Nothing says loving like a hot conspiracy bun in the oven, I always say. If you use the Lord of the Rings or Dungeons and Dragons forums, you’ve likely noticed that Turbine has taken them down due to an unspecified issue: We have identified a potential issue in the forum system.  As a precautionary measure […]

Did Somebody Say Official Forums? FFXI & FFXIV

Given Square Enix’s history of standard features either being implemented in an unnecessarily complicated manner, or simply not present at all, I can’t say I was surprised that Final Fantasy XIV launched without an official forum. Official forums in the ages of Final Fantasy XI (2002) were not common, although many of the MMOs from […]

Community Concerns #3: The Revival

Today’s “Absolutely Brilliant!” comes from user Gnatbug on the forums. Gnatbug has a list of rules for how to go about buying an MMO, and although he may be a little too selective (#4), he hits right on the money. Rule #1) Never Pre-Order unless you have played in the open beta of a game! […]

No More Trolling on The Blizzard Forums!

To call the Blizzard forums a veritable hell-spawn of trolls where intelligence and reason go to die would be an insult to the resting grounds where intelligence and reason truly go to die, and hopefully that will change when the troll’s names start appearing on the forums. In an upcoming update, Blizzard will incorporate the […]
