Certainly seems like it on the forums. What about the games? How's L5R and AGOT 2.0 doing?

I've felt the same way for a while as well. I used to check in daily to see what was being discussed but these days I only visit every few days. It's a shame but as a good portion of the games are dead it comes as no surprise.

I rarely use the site these days.
FFG killed many of the LCGs that I played and I didn't buy into the new ones.

You will know the site is dead if the new LCG doesn't get a forum.

I started to lose interest here when they refused to fix Conquest's deck building utility.  It was effectively worthless for about half the life of the game.  They kept dumping cards so you could use the card search, but no decks were ever being posted here.  That really hung a cloud over the whole thing.  So I was only sticking around here because the boards were active.  We use to have an active scene on the L5R board (with good strategy discussion), but that's all migrated to other deck builders and discord servers.  Now I only come here to do the occasional card search since I do like the UI for their search filters.

 

L5R has settled into a reasonable audience.  They had 180 people at the big Gencon tournament which is reasonable attendance for a mid to late life LCG.  I don't play AGOT 2.0 anymore.  L5R discussion happens almost exclusively on discord or in places like FFG's forum, Reddit or Facebook groups.  The same with AH:TCG, which is doing extremely well and shows no sign of losing steam.  AH:TCG also has a reasonable discussion presence on the BGG forums.
