    I suggest that you just ignore some of the more hateful comments there. Some reddit users are quite vocal about their negative forum experiences, and I think they generalize what happens here. Some do give valid criticisms, so you'll have to determine which ones to listen to.

    The comment you replied to just seems like an over generalization of why the forum is closing, and I'm quite sure Darian has explained some of the many actual reasons why it is.

    I have read a lot of the replies here, but I haven't absorbed all the details due to the high number of comments. Is there actually a proper "What's next" besides the archiving and eventual close of this site?

    A lot of good points have been brought up, I hope that a solution that is acceptable to the active forum members be done.

    And yes, I agree it's not a great situation. But as a studio we also have to look at where we can make the biggest impact in our communities, as in plural. The forums are the smallest community across all our platforms. The Clash Discord server alone has over 100K members. Our other platforms have millions of followers. Now compare that to just a few HUNDRED on the forums. No matter how you slice it, there is no winning situation here. And yes, I'm with you that it sucks.
    No prob, we'll just move our discussions over to General Chat ;-p

    There are some proper and civilized discussions in reddit (I think so), it's just rare and hard to find if the post isn't pinned. Unless there's a setting here in forums that notifies a user if someone replies to his post/comment, reddit can be convenient if you do find or start a discussion because of the notifications.

    I see many-to-many comms along 2 axes:
    1- real-time vs async. Discord is real-time, forums are async. In RT, you get a lot of brainfarts, reaction posts, emotions... see: Twitter. Also, they draw a younger crowd.
    2- moderated vs unmodded. Anything unmodded quickly rots, and the best places are the ones where the actual creators participate (for me, ArsTechnica.com 's and Minimachines.net 's forums, alas this forum not so much).

    So, Discord ? Not for discussion. Not for reference.

    I guess the "community" part of the game is now fully dead: no chat and no forum. What's a game w/o a community ?

    All that paragraph says is that you just don't know Supercell at all.
    You are correct, I donít know SuperCell, but I do know Tencent.

    That’s something I like. I’m using the native Reddit app (though I’ve read Apollo for Reddit is more intuitive), and while I don’t have notifications turned on for the app, when I go into the app, it still shows all my replies. Carrying on a conversation is super easy.

    I think subscribing to a thread does that here, but I’ve never tried it. I have preferred to manually browse the forums.

    I understand that sentiment if you’re relating the subreddit discord global chat channel to in-game global, but on the subreddit itself, per the rules they don’t allow low quality posts like “lol bro”, and if they were made, they should virtually disappear after a few downvotes.

    I don’t doubt what you’re saying, I’m sure there is the odd one here and there in Reddit, the problem is a lot of people are not going to waste time sifting through all the garbage to initially find them. This Forum based platform, may be archaic, but it is better suited for such discussions.

    Put the link back in the game, use the Forum as the single source of firsthand sneak peeks, updates etc and advertise it in game, you can get the youtubers to advertise it as well, and lots of people will sign on and use it.

    Point is, it could be done if you want it to be. If you don’t, then don’t, lose the few who won’t go play in the other playgrounds.

    I agree and disagree with you.
    Tencent according to Google has more than 50% of Supercell. They could definitely force SC for certain things but considering the fact that SC hasn't implemented any unethical cashgrab practises like other tencent games, it's better to say that the reason stated by Darian is true.
