Magic Board

Postby Elomin Sha » 03 Apr 2012, 04:46

Due to the amount of MtG threads popping up in Games and Gaming do you think MtG should have its own board?

Aw, I was hoping this was going to be about a plank of wood that grants wishes.

It would make sense. Even though most of the boards on here are about LRR video series, they could have a board for their streams and MtGO Academy videos and make it open for general MtG discussion.

No. It's not even so much that people are talking about MtG, as they aren't talking about other games. It's not like the other threads are getting drowned out, people are just more interested in MtG right now, and that's fine.

I'm generally against fracturing the forum wherever possible anyways. And I hate MtG.

I agree with Met here. There have been a couple of new threads in the last few days, but really they weren't anything that couldn't be in the main MtG thread.

That said, Under_Score's idea also has merit. If there was to be a board for linking the drafts and such, then Magic related discussion could be moved there. The biggest problem I can foresee with that idea is that it would be a different kind of board than the rest of the forum has. Right now we have two very general forums, two somewhat general and rarely used ones, and a whole bunch that are specific to a series. Having one that is a mixture of video threads and user created threads would be like opening up the ENN/Checkpoint sections to threads about gaming news.

Personally, I think we need an MtG board about as much as we need a Relationships and Sexuality board. Yes, they are popular topics on the forum, and if given such a board, we would probably fill it up. However, how much actual benefit do we get from that over the existing set of threads which already cover most of the relevant topics. So I don't see any need to fracture the forums any more. Magic topics are still a far cry from overwhelming the gaming board, so there's no real point.

when I asked about this for the LRR cast I asked if there could be a video thread created for the drafts. Much like there is for checkpoint, LRR videos...

A title like MTGO Drafts with only the mods creating threads, then drop in one two or three a week with March 30th Secret Draft, and mtgoacademy April 4th.

I think discussions about MTG should stay in the games area.

I think it's pretty okay how it is. I'm with met, I'm against fracturing the forums too much.

For some reason I want to see a Magic the Scattering now. But maybe that's just a table flip, outside, on a windy day.
