After a long time on using the vanilla forums to host the forums, it’s time to get ready to say goodbye to them. The current plan is to archive everything at the end of the month and shut down the forums. We are going to embrace the Discord as the social hub for all things battle bears and encourage you to post and chat over there like we did in this forum. The big reason for the move is because the discord is far more active than the forum and we feel is a more efficient means for players to interact with each other and the staff. I know the discord server isn't perfect yet, we will need to expand the channels for the server to be able to discuss all the different areas the forums currently cover. I've already talked to the moderation team about setting up a competitive channel where things like tournaments and ban lists will be kept for easy access. I know that some of you will be sad to see things go, like the “Bump this thread in 9001 days” will not be seeing a real bump. I’ll be sad to not find out what SSS really stands for. (Something Simply Sinister?)
If you would like to reminisce about the older days of the forum, feel free to. We would love to hear your stories.
