Perfect World Entertainment combining all forums into one setting

Community: only as long as it's convenient.

There are a lot of games under the publishing banner of Perfect World Entertainment, and the vast majority of them are getting mashed together. In forum terms, anyway – you will not be able to make your Champions Online character pilot a Star Trek Online ship through Jade Dynasty even if you ask nicely. This change will affect the forums of all the aforementioned games, though, as well as several others listed in the official announcement.

Players can look forward to a new forum with more extensive customization and greater ease of access compared to the existing vBulletin software running on the old forums. The change will not affect those games already running on the new forum setup, such as Swordsman. There’s no word on which old forums will be archived specifically, so if you have some threads you want to save it, would be astute to do so now.

melissamcdon Not so good for people like me who constantly make new characters and delete old ones. Which is the “real” me in that case? :P

Armsman I’m sure they’ll have a new lockbox come out next week to celebrate this epic event. :)

syberghost I wonder if the idiots who will be breaking the forums (again) will finally realize that capializing names is mandatory in English.
It would be nice if they’d put as much effort into fixing exploration as they put in to breaking the forums.

I think game forums should ALWAYS be “the game outside the game” and your forum personae and functionality should be based upon your character(s).   Kind of like a lobby.

I like so much ESO forum in which you can put your char and lvl as avatar :/ I’m sure it’ll be one to go for sure, since it’s one of the minor games of PWE.

Armsman The old forum is dying. I dunno if it’s bandwidth problem or something else but it’s dying.
This is a welcome change.

And PWE assimilation of the STO forum player community is complete. Yep, I guess resistance is futile in this instance. ;)

Glad I no longer have to moderate this mess.

Enh, whatever.  Will just bookmark the STO category and ignore the portal as usual.

Hopefully they dont make too much of a mess during the transition, although I know it’s been planned for a long time.
