I know man, it just sucks that people can't stick around in between games and write about things they'd like to see in the next installment.

Yeah, especially because an Injustice game was released less than a year ago and still got DLC released for it last month, but i guess it make sense, this is a MK forum...

RE: What happened to this site?

The forum used to be more crowded few years ago because we got a major MK related news every year, plus a MK game every two years. The news were more distribuited throughout the year as well.

Now we have major MK news every three years and a new MK game every four years. The only real news are at E3 and maybe game awards in june and december respectively.

Injustice killed the MK fanbase.

That's not it.
First of all, message boards like mk5.org are borderline obsolete these days thanks to social networks and websites like Reddit.

Regarding MKO specifically, it is a a dinosaur of a forum. It hasn't been updated in years and years, it works like ancient message boards from the stone age. You have to copy and paste HTML code in order to do simple things like links or post images. The emoticons haven't been updated since freaking MK4. Everything looks and feels like an old forum website from the early 2000s.

This, sadly. Especially the HTML, which is damn frustrating to deal with.

RE: What happened to this site?

Injustice didn't kill MKO. MKO killed MKO.

The community just wasn't unified. There were always arguments and accusations of admins abusing power. Users seemed to pack themselves into groups and only spoke to certain people. It was like being in high school, only with no one to actually keep the peace.

I still frequent the Serebii.net message board today, and the site flourishes with hundreds to thousands of users. Yes, Pokémon is far more popular and successful, but the community is also stronger. Mortal Kombat has never had the best fanbase. Truly, no MK message board was destined to make it out of the 2000s, and from what I've seen, none of them have.

In my heart, I'll always be an MK fan, so I'll always return to the sites, even if only for a moment.

Admins & mods happened.
Better websites happened.
Social media happened.
Admins & mods happened again.

In that exact order.

Good day.
