    Definetaly, we should have more forums for better games.. than blizz games..


    cs was a gppd choice .. its one of the biggest fps games out there.. theres just more rpg players here at bf.. therefore.. we should stick cs for the fpsers and add more forums for the rpg games as in Final Fantasy Forums

    or like Super Mario Forums

    No. Don't go outside Blizzard. Theres no point in it. We already saw how bad the CS forums flopped. And thats one of the biggest online multiplayer games ever. The only way we'de be able to pull in some extra traffic is if we get a game early enough to where there are no real sites out there for it.

    Which in this case won't happen, because by the time the game would come out, there would be no discussion, and we'de be having a "GET RID OF THE ____ SECTION"

    Games like GTA and such don't need a whole forum. One of two posts max is all they need. The idea of us trying to bring more traffic in when it was clearly proven that the CS forums won't is rediculous.

    If one of the most popular FPS games can't bring us traffic, what makes you think any other game that we dont already/plan to cover will?

    Fps gamers usuallly dont go on forums... they spend most of there time on there clans forum or actually playing the game or scrimming.. its way more on the game...
    but the rpgers tend to go to many forums and are big posters... i say more forums and extra carefully picked rpg games.

    in cs there isnt anything much to talk about. seriously think about it. what do you say?? i can kill 24 on 1. not much is it. thats why it flopped.

    gta can be a good traffic bringer if there are alot of good threads otherwise it is useless.

    get some mmorpg games. they pull in alot of crowd. but make sure to get a popular one.

    whats wrong with having adding a forum, even if it doesnt do so hot. its not costing money (unless bandwith deals with this) new members may join just for that specific forum

    What I mean is get an auto assault forum, not many forums avalible for it.

    And maybe an RPG Maker XP/95/2000/2003 forum were we can show our games, give scripts ideas and stuff.

    Believe me we don't want their traffic anyway. Anyone who cheats in an FPS is just purely LAME.
