Quote from Dunharrow »Maybe I am naive, but I do not fully understand the explanation for taking down the site.
Quote from Sheldon »You're the reason we can't have nice things.
Quote from GalspanicThat's a bad idea even for you.
Quote from 3drinks »Huh. Talk about your Near-Death Experience. (God, I've been waiting a long time for the opportunity to use that pun). Idk what to think, the fact that Curse was nonchalantly ready to wash their hands of the site only to introduce some flyby night last minute site I've never heard of to take ownership...what? Doesn't scream to me like a lot of forethought and planning went into this. Pretty hard to put my faith behind a management team like that. And what happens when they bow out? Then we go through all this again? I'm tendering a [temporary] vote of no confidence in that entity until we know anything about them.
I can't help but feel a stronger future with the Airli/Cryo project.
Quote from tstorm823 »
Some google research suggests to me that the buyer is someone from the Hearthstone equivalent Curse property who helped build that site, and then I got sucked into a black hole cause there's something really nostalgic about forum drama dumpster fires, and they've got a s'more worthy fire going right now.
Comparatively, Minecraft Forum was apparently also a part of this transaction, where the response was basically: "oh... neat."

Quote from TheAmericanSpirit »I do not appreciate this stupid company toying with my emotions like this. "We're dead! Sayonara!"......"We're back! You now belong to this other mindless conglomerate, and we'll see how far their give-a-***** takes you before you're back to step 1. Good luck and enjoy that twitch account we forced upon you all!"
I'm personally out. MTGS is home, sure, but **** am I ready to move out. I haven't really been enthused any of the changes made in the last few years (don't care for twitch or the deckbuilder), so I'll take the leap. Worst come to worst, I'll be back if the new site nosedives. But unless you make me subscribe to another totally unrelated service just to use the new platform, I doubt I shall return.
P.S. to those designing the new site, pleasepleaseplease don't make me jump through stupid hoops like Curse did. I don't want to attach my nonexistant Facebook to my account or integrate any other crap into a process that should not extend beyond email-> username-> password-> confirmation email code.
