https://kotaku.com/the-playstation-forums-are-closing-down-1841750227 Looks like Forums are not worth it anymore, also for other companies.
They are worth it, but companies cant take criticism so they need to move to highly restricted platforms, such as reddit.
For constructive feedback (and not the sterile constant uninformed whining that is probably another reason to close the Boards), a bunch of Rioters have already announced they will try and find ways via their Twitter account. Reddit and Discord are not disappearing.
Yea cool they will move on platforms where your criticism will be removed...if you think criticising anything thats not eternals (or anything that would make riot some money) will be allowed then oooh boy youre wrong.
Reddit is just riot's white knight's echochamber.
Twitter is a social media platform which some people dont even use, and not to mention they have a new feature where you can choose who can comment on your tweets (basically you can create your own echo chamber).
And Discord....good luck writing a feedback and having it seen by a rioter when 1000 people are writing there aswell.
Removing Boards means that we wont be able to criticise riot (and yes, they do deserve criticism).
Also remember that even well written feedback may not represent the statistical truth of what is best for millions of players. It is impossible to please 100 per cent of the player base for each modification. Of course, players who dont care or enjoy the change dont really post on Boards.
Ofc. But when you dont take ANY feedback into consideration (again, excluding stuff that makes them money), then we have an issue.
Also remember that Riot can create gigantic surveys anytime anywhere in client or via mailing list.
I play since season 3 and I didnt get more than 5 surveys, 3 of which were about skins and lore, and 2 of them were overall enjoyment.
