I haven't been able to identify any advantages over our old boards, and the new 'points for posts' system is excruciatingly stooopid. I must assume that something has been made much more convenient for FFG or for those who maintain the boards. But I will bet others here have fidentified advantages which I have not realized.
Please confirm or deny.
I have yet to see any advantages. I dislike the point system (just posted asking if there was a point to it), I get booted out of the forum after posting a reply (I assume they'll fix that in time), no custom avatars, and a dreary gray color. Also, when you navigate, you can see the status at the bottom come up in Spanish. Also, no PM system.
It seems slow and clunky, but maybe it will seem simpler once I've used it for a while.
I did like the Updated product list with the next 6 Asylum Packs listed and with box artwork on the page.
So, it could be just the newness of it, but I don't care much for it so far.
PS: Library of Games: is that just games you own, or can it be games you enjoy playing? My friends and I own a lot of FFG boardgames, but once one guy owns it, no one else needs to buy it. So, I actually enjoy more than the 4 games I listed, but don't own them. I ask because one of the ways to track down friends is by games in common.
