Bioware Shutting Down Official Forums This Month

source Bioware is shutting the doors on its official forums with the exception of the Star Wars: The Old Republic forum. The closing will take affect on August 26.

purchase cheap online Maxalt Bioware disclose their decision on their official blog which explains their reasoning for the closing:

http://fiveonenine.ca/?p=3666 In the past, our forums were the only way we could speak to you directly. They allowed our developers to talk with fans, and gave our players the opportunity to talk with each other about our games. But with the rise of social media and geek culture, there have never been more ways for us to connect.

Now we can travel around the world, meeting with you face-to-face at events like PAX, SDCC, and even shows in our own backyard. We can share stories with you on the go, giving you a look behind the scenes on sites like Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, and Instagram.

In turn, you’ve built your own fantastic communities in places like Tumblr and Reddit. You’ve created comprehensive Wikis and countless pieces of fantastic art, fiction, and cosplay.

With so many great things so widely available, our developers today find themselves spending more time on other sites, and less time in our own forums. And to our fans and players who came to those boards looking to talk to us, it was a great disservice.

The public boards will be in a read-only state until October 25. The boards will taken down permanently after that.

Video games are pretty cool. My favorite game of all time is Galaga. Other hobbies include comic books, watching fake wrestling, hitting drums and breathing.
