    Reddit's formatting gives me cancer.

    That's precisely why I almost never use it.

    I hate reddit because.... ^

    As far as PAD information goes... PADGuide app for the win!
    As far as PAD conversation... This forum. I do use reddit, but sparingly.
    As far as PAD guides... don't use them.

    I was disagreeing with his assumption that reddit was a pretty non-well-known community. I was just pointing out that it has a fairly large community, and that overall, a large population uses it for game help. Nevertheless, this isn't a particularly interesting disagreement to be discussing tho.

    Me, apparently lol -eases into rocking chair-

    I didn't even know that reddit is a forum. It looks more like a multi-user blog where the only categories are... the broad af categories (compared to typical forum categories) and completely unintuitive linking (I click on the title to try to get to a discussion and am instead led outside of reddit? damn it where is that external consistency eh

    I love my human-computer interaction class because now I can actually label all of the design choices I flip my shit over lol)

    So... reddit's not exactly what I think of when I want to have a discussion (forum topics). It's what I think of when I want to see what other people are sharing (blog posts)

    yeah, ill definitely agree that reddit's formatting gives it a large learning curve (can you even call it that?). i didnt really get invested in reddit until i realized i was popping my head into several communities and figured i might as well make an account and get used to it. i still more or less stick to lurking. posting (esp starting a thread) is really counterintitve

    I wouldn't call it a learning curve. its just a dated system from REALLY old forum structure. its really cumbersome compared to a forum like this.

    I have a reddit account. Ill check it for certain things. but its just not a good forum system. people just suck it up because its essentially a forum for everything instead of just one specialized thing, so its convenient.

    With all the money we give gungho. Why don't they just buyout padx and update it themselves. Its giving them so much revenue and they don't even realize it. People check padx for godfests and information more than their facebook page.

    Because Gung-Ho office in Japan probably doesn't give half a shit about NA other than to know that the official stream isn't too embarrassing and that all of the checks from apple and google play are clearing.

    I prefer to search google/Youtube for PAD stuff... but then I am a dinosaur from the pre-internet days.

    I rarely use Reddit. I don't like the viewing format, it's confusing as hell.

    Surprised that our PDX's very own Discord server (that is really active with news and all) isn't even mentioned. o_O

    Also the dislike of Reddit was a big push for me to start my own PAD JP news blog, honestly. As much as I like fether and mews for their news post, the rest... sigh.

    THANK YOU for your JP news translations! I read your site all the time!!

    I dont think that the playerbase is really worried about the news, that is easily obtained from other sources.

    It is the dungeon and card info, kept in one neat, searchable place, that is accessible on a computer, that people miss. Skillup mats, where the skillup mat drops, assist stats, whether cards are assistable, all of those little things, easy to find, that makes PAD harder to enjoy now than it was before.

    PADguide is good but it being tied to a device really hampers it, since a lot of people either A: only have one device or B: play with an alt in co-op and cant access padguide without DC'ing. And it is also much more convenient to work on builds on a computer. You can open multiple tabs for different card options, dungeons, etc. PADguide cant do that. (And that is SOOO underrated. I rarely theorycraft builds anymore because using padguide is too annoying).

    PADguide's search is really nice though. If I need a F/D card with 2 TPAs and 2 SB, its really nice for searching like that.

    PADherder, being based off of PADx, was also a great way to keep track of upcoming evos, etc. Without it, I find myself missing evos, not having the mats necessary, etc. And I know I can't be the only one.

    TLDR, the lack of updates from PADx has definitely, without a doubt, caused me to play less PAD. (And more MH World :D)

    Looks like PADX might be back so problem solved if so.

    I dont think so, that "updated card patch" is all of cards that were already on padx before it stopped updating. None of the new MH stuff, NY stuff, KOF stuff, etc is updated. FMA was released in JP in November, so the cards were in there from the JP data.

    I think I read on their discord when they did that dump that they were making efforts to catch things up. That was the first step.
