The Witcher 2 - Official Forums Relaunched
 
Wow, that took a while. CD Projekt finally has official forums back up again.
More information.

Yeah I noticed that today. Only took 2 1/2 months. :p

On the positive side though, it looks like they managed to import the posts from the old forum or at least some of them because browsing through the new forum I noticed a lot of old posts.

Just in time to hear bitching about the Xbox delay.

JDR13 August 2nd, 2011 01:04

I didn't even realize they had been down all this time. 2 1/2 months is pretty much unheard of. CDP should be embarrassed.

The delay is more than likely the fault of Namco Bandai and there upcoming legal battle.

Good news forums are back, bad news i have nothing to bitch about :(

I think all developers should hide the forums in the first month or two after a game's release - it'll reduce the amount of vitriol on the internet significantly!

I agree.

The very first few months are so much full of hatred -

- but then, support questions would also get lost …

Well they should have a support system aside from forums - proper systems allow for ticket tracking etc. as well, which forums don't. The main thing you miss is the common problems type thing - if there's a quirk to how to progress or a community derived workaround for a problem that's not been (or able to be) made official yet.

But those kind of things can be found on non-official community forums (along with the hatred, I guess :p)

There was a lot of stuff on that old forum that was lost when it went down. Most Witcher 1 mods were there. Some of them you could only get there. I made my play through of the first game during that time and there was a fan mod that fixed a certain broken part of a quest that I wasn't able to get. There were also fan translations of some of Sapowski's works that haven't been officially released in English yet.

I haven't really checked extensively yet but I do hope they managed to get all that stuff back up. There's a lot that goes in forums. Sure there's bitching, but there's creativity too. Plus the developer's forums for better or worse are always going to be the central hub to a game's community. If you take that away I think you lose something.
