The forums were worse than most subreddits on reddit. The graphic center and gaming subforums were useless as thrirsty pricks would only selfishly ask you for requests rather than give out their opinion on your works. Gaming threads would be ignored because it wasn't LoL or whatever shitty game was the fad at the time.
The deck garage was decent. There was always drama somewhere in intro or in general discussion.
I'm glad half of the kiddies are gone.”
Skrubs and children exist EVERYWHERE. That's a fact, they're not just isolated to DN. I ignored the forums for the most part, because well, 95% of its inhabitants are idiots *when I would post on something, it'd only be because said topic interested me*.
The truth about games is; most gaming discussion devolves into childish Bullshit that quite frankly, is best left to games like CoD *yes, the CoD community is cancer*.
Most people who play this game are immature ... brought in by the allure of the anime, and the fact that this game is promoted as a "children's card game" at its core *that is another rant, for another time, but plain and simple; this ain't a children's card game*.
Tl;dr, there's idiots in EVERY single community you go to, some more than others ... as much as the DN community was cancer, if you ignored it and just did your thing, all was decent. ”
This was barely ever the case in the older days and ygo was still a children's card game then as well. The amount of drama and stupidity increased drastically with DN.
I know there are idiots in everything. I'm not saying there isn't. I'm just saying I'm happy a lot of them left.”
Never was a "children's card game" ... at least, not competitively *seriously, if you were to quiz children about the mechanics of yugioh, most would fail*. As I said, there's more idiocy in some places than others. Maybe there was more on DN than other places, sure, but it is what it is.
Drama was just more evident on DN, it existed in other places, but they managed to keep it stowed away, more than DN is able to.
In fact, I'll say this; DevPro/YgoPro is more inviting to scrubs, because of the fact the system is automated and spoon-feeds you. That's not to say there aren't good players who use those platforms, because there are ... but DN had a lot of top players in both IRL and online play that used it too, simply because it simulated the real life experience.
The fact that it was/is easier to access than Ygo/DevPro lends itself to the fair share of skrubs, but once you waded through them, you'd find yourself coming up against some pretty solid duelists.
