    Shadow Era is well on Wikipedia.com.

    We've all been there.

    We wanted to search our favorite game on some website and laugh at all the negative comments. I surely have. Or it may not be negative comments. How about...

    Lack of information?

    Recently I went on Wikipedia.com and searched up Shadow Era. Sure enough, it had a page. Basic information was written, such as gameplay and _________ and _________. That was it actually.

    Just. Gameplay. An extremely short paragraph explaining how to play. No offense, but it really wasn't written very well.

    We all know, and trust me we all know, that there is so much to this game. The entire community, the people associated with the game, the amazing devs. It wasn't fair to have just a teensy bit of that information. So I went on wikipedia and changed everything, by adding entire new paragraphs explaining the gamemodes, heroes, resources, and guilds.

    Do this, right now. Go on wikipedia and search "Magic: The Gathering". Don't even read it, just scroll down to the very bottom and just look at how long of an article it was. We should make a page for Shadow Era like that.

    This game really is good and other people need to see that.

    Please view the article here:

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shadow_Era

    ...and tell me what you guys think. What other topics should I talk about?

    Thanks guys, I'm doing this for you all.

    That's an awesome job man, the community thank you.

    We should really start to export reviews and articles to make the game known, how can we make it? Anyone knows a site that accepts custom reviews?

    Excellent job! Other topics may include a summary of all the sets with top cards and what they brought to the game. Lore can also be part of it. Typical archetypes. World Championship events, etc.

    I'd say we just start going on IGN, metacritic, etc, in more than 5 people in groups, and just start writing positive reviews about the game.

    Great work! There's a shadow era wiki that you could also link to, for giving people more information about lore and such.

    http://www.shadowera.com/wiki

    And you could link to some deckbuilders. Here's one: http://deckbox.shadowera.net/

    I don't want to edit it since I'm connected with the game.

    Yeah I go on the shadow era wikia sometimes to. But Wikipedia is more of a in general theme instead of just about one topic, so I updated some information there.

    I think you misunderstood what I meant. I wasn't saying Wikipedia was not worth updating. What I meant was:

    Please can you link from the Wikipedia page to the two sites I mentioned.

    As for the wikia site - we stopped using that when the wiki was added on shadowera.com.

    Many thanks!
