This is a bit off topic, but why is there a link to "Dziner Studio" at the bottom of the forum page? It leads to some weird blog and a link to Las Vegas Escorts....

General Discussion / Interesting website forum stats

Well, the new year of 2019 is upon us; although we are a few weeks away, it is most likely that very little will happen here to change anything.

So, I thought it would be interesting to look at the stats of this year, as well as previous years http://forum.arcanewonders.com/index.php?action=stats

2018 has been the worst year in forums history: there have been only 288 new threads, and 3886 new posts! Compare that to 2014, when we had 1513 new threads and 17746 new posts- yikes....

So where does this leave us?

Mage Wars, the game, is not dead- as long as people will play, the game will still be considered "alive". However, for all intents an purposes, the community is fractured and nearly non-existent. The last 3 years of arguing about it doesn't change the fact that the development of Mage Wars Arena is done and Arcane Wonders have let it go, and nothing the community does will change anything about it. Arcane Wonders has simply killed it, while leaving it on "life support" with the Academy expansions. It doesn't help either that community management is non-existent and that all the information we receive comes from online merchants instead of the actual company making these products.

In regards to these forums, I think that it's fairly straight forward: this site is basically used for Mage Wars, and as such the survival of these forums are based on the success of Mage Wars- that is fairly clear considering how most of these senior members of these forums haven't posted for months or even years. And as the Dice Tower Essential games have been quite bland, there hasn't been any activity on that part of the forums- basically abandoned for all intents and purposes. The community now relies on 5-10 people who lurk and sometimes post, with no clear future in sight.

These numbers will only decrease into the new year. Thanks to everyone for having made the last few years so engaging and interesting. However, continuing on posting on these forums is like feeding hay to a dead horse: you are just ignoring the cold hard truth :(
