Overview: The ongoing debate between whether Reddit or Forums are better for gaming communities has reached a crescendo in the industry, with passionate debates supporting both sides. Some companies focus on one, some the other, and some try to support both. Arguments even arise within companies as to what approach to take, leading to some significant communication issues that affect both Community Managers and the players. The panelists will debate a wide range of issues surrounding the two platforms, and we'll present some solid data that may help guide (or fuel) the debate!
