Yeah I've heard its a hack where you connect to someone else's server other than Nintendo's.nah I didn't ven know people still plaed brawl online, didn't nintendo like shut off the network or something?
You're never too late to respond, ha.*raises hand*
lol I'm over two months late. But yeah, there really isn't much a mod (or anyone, really) can do to bring the Brawl forums back single-handedly. When the game is being left out of almost all Smash nationals (still have my fingers crossed for Genesis 4), there's less incentive for local TOs to host Brawl tournaments, thus less incentive for people to keep playing Brawl, and finally less incentive to post about it.
Not to mention, most of us that were really active for Brawl have "grown up". As in, we don't have the same kind of spare time that we used to, and our priorities have shifted more towards things like careers and romantic partners and trying to pay for everything ourselves (adulthoold is a bummer sometimes). So... yeah.
This is still my favorite Smash game and character, but with my current obligations idt there's much I can push for. Still hounding DBR to re-add Brawl to their roster for Genesis 4, still trying to slip in Brawl friendlies at my local tournaments, still looking for time to host Brawl at smashfests, still traveling to every awesome-looking Brawl event I can. But idk, it only goes so far.
AlphaSSB if you're in Tennessee, that's not way too far from Orlando FL (~10h road trip with friends). There's a regional tournament series hosted there by the FBC with Brawl, I went to their first one and it was a blast. Their second event is coming up (same date as EVO I think?), and iirc their goal is to have a regional every six months or so. Maybe look into it if you're serious about Brawl
