    Everyone on discord for easier shitposting and trashtalking. I'm still happy that nrvnqsr is still alive though. I love this place.

    Just recently a forum I spent a lot of time in in the early 2010s shut down. Even though I hadn't been there since like 2014 it was sad to hear about.

    BL is actually one of the more active forums I know about these days.

    I do miss the time where people would post very actively post in the forum. The memories were pretty fond for me.

    I think that's only natural. Forums get active when certain big moments worth discussing happen, like the release of new games, update for events, new stories, etc., then it tends to get multiple posts in the span of minutes, then things start winding down as time goes by, and unless there's another big thing coming, it'll pause until then.

Months of nothing/just reruns, minimal QOL, unoptimized events, DW's high and mighty attitude, bad gacha luck, etc. I think the event that really pushed me to the edge of quitting FGO was Kama's vanilla event. The event was hella unoptimized and was a big chore to get done despite the hefty quartz rewards. Sure, they actually managed to optimize it, but that's only a few days before the event's finished. So I made a decision to quit FGO after they released LB4 since it was the LB I was most hyped for. Even to this day, my stomach'd churn when I'm remembering that event.

    People I know for years here are also starting to feel the burnout around that time I believe. Like, Altaris quit (and came back I see), McJon MIA, arai MIA, Mizukume MIA, mew MIA, Canon MIA, and so on and so on. It's a natural conclusion for playing the same dull game for 5+ years I guess. I mean, I was so sick of it that I sold off my Day 2 acc. The acc that I put my sweat and blood into, which I kinda regret a bit now since it was an account that I put a lot of love into haha.

    I did came back around 2019 a bit last year because of Santa Karna and Muramasa. Got a p decent account from my friend (though it's not as maintained and stacked as my old acc, admittedly), but they killed me again with the Ms. Crane collab for being unhype af, and impossible to finish with natural AP and without full bonus. So I went on a hiatus again, until around New Year. At this point, I saw that they released a Servant named Oberon and they actually implemented a pity after 7 effing years. So right now getting Oberon's the reason I'm playing I guess, and I'm actually motivated to gather quartz and raise my Servants now. Also I got Iskandar on this acc recently haha.
    I literally asked the mods to disable my account for an entire year after getting too burnt out and toxic (plus around that time I was getting a job change), stay away from TM discussions. I still logged in and play FGO at the time but not even close to the same amount of dedication I had before, skipped some events, and the burn out is still with me right now where I skip most of event dialogues if it is mostly just gags or gossip that goes on for too long. I came back cuz covid lockdown in my country forced me to work at home and I had other games to divert my attention to, so FGO no longer bother me as much.

    As for the forums, I always preferred the format vs reddit or discord due to the ease of reading and more organized in contents. I only use discord for smaller group discussions or private messages, and reddit is more and more of a meme site as time goes on which drives me away from posting there as well.

    Yeah, I can totally relate to your feeling of lingering burnout. I can say for sure that I'm still feeling a bit of burnout even now. In the same light, I most likely won't put as much as dedication as I used to on the game. and go towards a more casual playstyle. Like if the event is bad and tedious I'll most likely skip it, looking at you Lostroom rerun.

    Teased is kind of an odd word for it, while it wasn't the first time we'd seen it and ReDrop themselves making it gave it more weight than other recursive genderbend fanarts, it's basically just in the same vein as the four armed monster Douman Furumi drew as well as other "official fanarts", most didn't expect it, or Minilumbus before them, to actually enter the game even if they're accompanied with "BTW, you're never actually going to get this servant" as a tagline

    They are? Maybe it's because the forum I'm usually on is extremely active but I've never noticed.

    Maybe the forums you're all talking about having declining activity are old and thus naturally reaching the end of their lifespan. The again, if there aren't new forums to replace the old, then I guess forums are dying.

    Reddit's upvote/downvote system is toxic to discussion. Discord is too... causal? It's good for hanging out with friends or discussion within a handful of people but bad for discussion when the community has more members than a monkey sphere.

    It's also easier to comment and add stuff, which drives more people into discord than not. Unlike forums where they're either up-to-date with the features or sorely lacking. Honestly, I still think discord does what forums does but with less restrictions. You don't need to sign into multiple forum accounts for your different forums and you don't need to know your [Spoiler] or [S] to do some stuff since it's easier to shorten and manage by replacing it with a single keystroke like | and * and so on. The only problem is sorting and easy reading of information but you can easily open multiple channels and have mods restrict certain information flow into said channels only, not to mention the ability to pin messages and so on.

    EDIT: Oh, and like I said before, you can more easily shitpost and trashtalk in discord. Everyone loves to shitpost and trashtalk, right?

    In that case, hinted? Foreshadowed? I think the foundation had been laid out back then, and it's up to the staff when they're going to implement those for real. That is, if they feel like it. Some ideas may just end up as what-ifs.

    Well, Waltz collab hasn't gotten a rerun yet.

    As for Ooku, I low-key enjoy the event as a whole. Getting many mats just by progressing feels great, personally. Though I understand JP players' hatred for the event due to atrocious loading process, which wasn't an issue in NA. Can't wait for the rerun so that my NP3 Schez can get a battery.

    I'm still not sure those are the right words for it but that's not important in the end.

    As for Ooku, I was mostly infuriated by the fact that I couldn't run and then leave on natural AP because of all the 1AP nodes that would replenish before I could finish up. So basically I felt trapped lol

    On the other hand, you could just spend like 120 AP into doing dailies/free quest. Then spend 20 AP progressing through Ooku.

    And when it does it's going to be so awkward. Waltz doesn't even exist anymore.

    Speaking of Ooku, Kasuga is on the favorite NPCs list in the survey, right? If so, I forgot to vote for her.

    I'm still baffled they gave her the "You'll summon me one day right?" song and dance, then proceeded to forget she existed

    I'd pay for that.
    Because you are too young. Or too stupid. Or both.

    I wouldn't hate a summer Oberon costume. He's probably one of the few male servants that I wouldn't mind not seeing shirtless
