What is going on with ‘Hardcore’..?

I've never considered myself as a part of the Hardcore scene (even though my journey's started with Thunderdome back in 2004/2005), but from what I've experienced so far it seems that

NEKA:Modern trends and competition ruined it imo.
Now, we have dozens of new tracks constantly being produced without any soul, filled with generic trends etc.

The problem is this generation; accepting poor quality childcore with all the fucked up pok pok pok kicks that have no intensity at all.
The trend of Frenchcore, that style it’s just so poor, what a drama. The Hardcore scene should be really ashamed of themselves, especially the new softcore generation that likes it. You all are destroying what Hardcore is all about; rough, hard, agressive instead of soft, childish and happy!

I agree with that. Most of Sefa's and Dr.Peacock productions are miles away from the quality of hardcore we had before. It really sucks. They just play random ass tunes with frenchcore beats.

I miss artists like Nosferatu, Tommyknocker, Dione, Tha Playah, Dj D, Meccano twins and Amnesys... I know some are still around but we don't get to see them as often. Thanfully we still have good producers like mad dog and angerfist. Also I must name my favorite producers of the last couple years: the melodysts. Love them, they are bringing so much freshness to hardcore music

...where nearly every track sounds exactly like the previous. Hardcore is pretty much dead

Exactly the same that is "going on" with any other music genre - nothing, just older generations who believe it used to be better and not liking the new thing. In any genre you'll find these people who would bet their lives it "used to be better".
Don't get this wrong, I rather have millennium hardcore than the new thing. But it doesn't mean something is going on. Music stays on the move all the time because the older generations will stop partying sooner or later, so as an artist you want to stay fresh and bring new people in, otherwise there comes a time you will have no crowd anymore but a bunch of 40 year olders who are still going hard. Perfectly respectable as well, but if music is your main income, it's not ideal.
Also.. As a listener I rather have something that is moving in one direction. It's just the way all genres work. I might or might not like the current direction, but I prefer that to a stuck genre.
hmu if u agree

I guess this has some truth to it. I try and stay in touch with all the new music by downloading all the liveset and listening during my workouts. I must say I really like the new hardstyle and rawstyle. But I can't help but feel that hardcore hasn't really found a way to re-invent itself in 2019. Way less creative than before imo.

I mean could we hear this masterpiece in 2019 ?

I don't understand why they aren't at the top of the hardcore venues right now next to angerfist. Their productions are so good.

Just a theory, but probably because people their sound is "too complex" for the crowd.
Producers from MoH, Neophyte and Dogfight are popular because of that.
They stay relevant to what current crowd wants but also they have the best marketing.
