    Do the site admins still exist? There's not even a FIFA19 forum open. Which is pretty sad considering that's the reason the site existed in the first place. With the discontinuation (effectively) of Moddingway (Ariel), it's been pretty dire in the realm of footy gaming.

    Not dead yet. But it's really dying.

    People playing card collecting games and making microtransactions beats people who wanna play a realistic sports game every day of the week. I've said this before, but I've had enough, I'm going to start a forum/blog where people can go who only want to talk to other like minded people to share mods, rosters, and sliders for non-online gameplay and older sports titles.
    I know a lot of people who'd like that.

    I said this in another conversation but I'll copy paste it here again... (if that's a problem to any of the forum supervisors, please delete it)

    I worked once for a startup and was involved in community support, forums, social media, etc. It was a crappy browser product but I learned a lot about interacting with communities in these kinds of environments. For a few years now I've been thinking about opening a REALLY basic (like, reeeally basic) forum/blog type site where people who really want to fine-tune and share minutiae of modding different sports games could unite with the goal of having a place for people with modding know-how or interest who also know about and love sports to get together. The blog element would allow for people who write and like to expand on things to express their views too (guilty as charged with always posting wordy things :blush:). Any "where is my" or "give me" attitude would be discouraged from the get-go. I see LOTS of really old forum platforms still around in really niche-y topics where you are basically made to participate or risk losing your account. It works. The community actually sticks together. Just an idea, of course, and I can't really afford financially to not work to start up something like that. But I'm getting a bit sick of all this as well and I'm now at a point where I only interact with a small group in each sports game forum I go to.
    I'd love to do it, though.

    Definitely dead, as with most forums.

    This Forum will come alive again as soon as modding capabilities for FIFA return.
    Like it or not, SoccerGaming forums have always fed back from the passionate modders. Considering it is how it all started afterall.

    Unfortunately, EA haven't helped much with recent decisions regarding prohibitions and limits applied to FIFA. I'm very confident that eventually there will be a big breakthrough and slow but surely thing will start to resume.
