Probably labeled like that because it is connected to the "official WL2 wiki", which BTW, no one is editing at, is spammed constantly, and is a copy of the Wika WL Wiki. facepalm.jpg

And it looks like it has Forums, guess these here aren't good enough.

Never did like seeing things listed as "official" when the original company wasn't operating it. Maybe it's a shortening of "officially sanctioned".

Yep, that was my way of thinking. Seems like a load of double up to me. I am mildly annoyed at the concept, honestly.

Well, this board we're on here is "The official community forum for Wasteland 2 development". It says so right at the top. Once the game is complete, development will be over and this board will have fulfilled its function. inXile may leave it running, or lock or even delete it in October. In the latter cases, it will be nice to have an officially sanctioned new site to go to.

I'd rather see them migrate the stuff from here. There is a lot of good conversations in here.

I don't see why it would be deleted.

These forums aren't going anywhere.

But fan forums have a different energy to em, we certainly aren't going to discourage them being kicked off. If it's successful, as I certainly hope it will be, we'll have different WL2 communities with different tones and focuses, which is always a good thing.

Pretty much. We don't run it or anything.

Though there is certainly merit to keeping them separated, I hope you guys integrate the official Torment forum with Wasteland and just make one big InXile forum like Obsidian and most other devs have. I'd bet most of the regulars around here pledged to both anyway.

This. It seems silly to have to visit two different forums for the same company.

Good, because work's filter blocks Curse but not these forums.

I agree. There might end up being reasons to do otherwise so no guarantees but I am fairly sure that's what we'll do. It'd certainly be easier for me to keep an overview of, and I think it's easier on the fans too.
