Reddit removed from BB Comunity
« on: Jun 09, 2019, 07:19 AM »
Reddit was there a few days ago, but it's gone now.
BB now lists Instagram, Facebook and Twitter - no Reddit to be found.

Shame, so only platforms that they have direct control over are now listed in game. It was always odd that they closed the forum that they controlled and replaced it with reddit that they didn’t control.

Anyway disappointing that so many good places of information is not acknowledged by supercell. They don’t have to be “official” just referenced but maybe by doing that then they may be seen to be endorsing them and creating pr and legal issues.

SC has been plugging Discord in the Boom Box.

They are running out of platforms on which to avoid players.

Reddit has been infected with the same problems that affected the forums. Didn’t notice it there beforehand, I’m not surprised that they have taken steps to quietly avoid that too.....

I just find that, in amongst the good comments and contributors, there are quite a few responses that are ....less than helpful.


Comments about being unable to progress were met with typical style “get more ERs” rather than reading someone’s response that they are locked out. Flaws in the game are met with placing blame on the player quite frequently.

And comments are downvoted a lot just because they complain where as uncalled for comments get upvoted.

On a positive note, I told mike that he needs to “learn to raid” when he was “complaining” about lack of intel  ::)


When his post has nothing to do with his raiding lol.  :P

They still link to articles on the forum... except that would be the Supercell forum boom beach pages which don’t “exist” anymore.....

If the problem with Reddit is a bunch of lower quality content, then Discord has the same problem as Reddit. Actually, the Redditors basically run Discord. The content is not our fault - some of us are annoyed about it as well. I think it's an issue that comes up on a lot of internet forums and like communities - if you want high quality content, you need to gatekeep aggressively, which means pushing a bunch of people out. Do we want that? Tradeoffs. We did let SC advertise us...

As you say it is the same with every internet community. Happened with the old sc forum too, more people, more lower quality posts, more moderation, negativity creeps in etc.

I think reddit and discord have done well with the sudden influx but can’t please everyone unfortunately. It does also attract new people and ideas etc which is good for the game.


A difficult balance to find.

The streaming format of Reddit leads to a lot of the same questions coming up again and again, especially with the in-game advertising bringing all the newbies.
Side benefit of course is that its not just the same old-timers shooting the shit anymore. Actually some Boom Beach discussion going on there!

It’s unfortunate the list of frequently requested ideas, known bugs, and ruled out ideas lists weren’t more easy to find. That would help reduce the level of repetition. Also, the VP Wall thread needs to be like the most accessible thread there. It’s tiring every two days or so another lvl 12 is on there saying he can’t beat anyone and someone has to direct them to the thread or a bunch of people give random advice.

At the same time, you’re right that new content is nice. Seems like a lotta memes recently, but at least it’s fresh. We don’t get much like that here cause everyone is pretty well just all the die hards from the old forum lol.


Except for this gold: 😂

You may have “let” SC advertise you, but from my perspective it seems you were dumped upon.  Which is a shame.

But they will move on from discord I am sure. Just need to wait for the next CM..... how long has this guy been there now? 🤪


Tbh, I still haven’t quite managed to work out their App....

That was you?

Actually 1 person said it and another replied the same thing. Which one was you?

And Orr, I don’t raid the cookie jar. I keep my cookies in their original container which does not go in a jar.
