Ya, I agree about needing dedicated server forums. That would really help.
Not for nothing, but how many times do they need to redesign the website. This is the second time in 5 months IIRC. maybe they should get it right one of these times, so they can use some of those resources to get the game fixed.
Humans are the only species on the planet smart enough to be this stupid.
a post about it a while ago. I didn't get many replies, but it looks like they finally did something about it. I am really really happy with the way it turned out!
at least now it looks like a site of a game that is out and running. The old site looked like TOR was still in beta
I like it, the style fits much better, however, I would like maybe the background on posts to just be a little lighter, or the text a little darker - I am suffering from the same problems I have on Darth Hater's website, my eyes really start to feel strained now after reading even just 10-15 posts. I didn't really get that on the old colour scheme - but still, it's a vast improvement, cosmetically, and functionally everything is much clearer now. It looks more like a proper MMO website... whatever that is supposed to mean :P
I was hoping they'd add realm forums with this update, too bad.
but yes, it looks more modern and more inviting now, I like it.
So basically, don't hold your breath on the idea of realm forums.
We are seeing applications from some of the guilds that did well during T1, but overall lack the skill to progress well in T2. However, the skill level of some of the newer recruits isn't quite where we need it to be. We're Rep and on a medium pop serer so getting an influx of talent from rerolls isn't likely.
The forums in WoW I used for advertising was a lot easier for people to notice since they really didn't have to look anywhere to see you recruiting. Also, advertising for things to sell or events you are holding was much better. I know they don't have any plans for adding in that function but I hope they change their mind. They seem to be changing their mind about a lot of things recently so I will keep my hopes up.
Looks way better now!
