Its sad to see traffic slow down so much. Reddit is basically a giant shouting match. PSU is a place of more civilized discussion where everyone can be heard.

Re: Wow. This place really died, eh?


I discovered planetside-universe forums when I started playing planetside2 and I really liked how it was easier to keep up a good thread here since there was less people barging in the thread than on official forums.

It saddens me too that you quitted playing because of the game optimization, I often feel like the only reason I actually do great in planetside is because I have a good computer.

Yes I find it particularly sad that reddit has had such an impact on this forum given the amount of work/time Hamma has sunk into PS.

Might not be entirely true, but even to be partly true is disappointing.

The "Devs" don't even use the official forums. And to get news on PS2 updates and hotfixes we are advised to visit Reddit or Twitter.

I, too, do not like the way Reddit works.


Sorry for moaning in my first post in here for ages, but the Reddit thing struck a nerve...

Graduated my master Industrial Design Engineering (SOE could attempt to hire me now ) and went on holiday.

I log in here once a month to see my posts in Idea Lab are still the latest. I've said most I've had to say on PS2 design and the things I said in pre-launch in Alpha are still the things I'd say today, so I'm kinda burned out on repetition.

Sadly it has slowed down quite significantly here. There's lots of reason though, Reddit is certainly a big one. Many games slow down after a couple of years of release as well.

Other big pieces of it are that I've been really busy with work and the site hasn't received any new features to set it apart from other sites out there.

Either way we will always be here in one form or another. I thank all of you for continuing the conversation and Tom for continuing to lurk

Reddit must be wiping out sites left, right and centre. Chin up Hamma, due to the fickle nature of the net, Reddit is probably just one potential corporate buyout away from a mass exodus.

So many eggs in one basket over on Reddit these days, I'd be amazed if it doesn't all come tumbling down at some point.

Indeed. I wrote an article on my thoughts about this sort of thing a year or two ago.

Re: Wow. This place really died, eh?


Loyalty and support is a one-way street. SOE takes. They don't give. It'd be easy for them to post updates and take questions *here*, and help resuscitate the site that kept the franchise on life support for years and years and is now their bread and butter. But that's not the nature of the corporate beast.

I remember that post. It was a good read back then and still is today. I wonder how well it applies to non-corporate websites in general, with so much of the web being consolidated into fewer hosting platforms and aggregating sites (such as Pintrest).

PSU really did keep the dream alive between PS1 and PS2 launch. I miss those days and discussions.

I remember back in the day when the site was broken and I tried 10 times to make an account and I contacted the help email/form and heard nothing.

That was partly to do with the decline
