phpBB's theme feels better and more standardized to me, I mean I know my way around front-end quite well and I am very comfortable with PHP (I am pragmatic not OOP.), point is whenever I attempt to touch a mybb theme it feels like I suddenly don't know shiat.

Would've been nice if the default theme was something like vanilla Bootstrap 4... and the files contained in a folder so I can fire up phpStorm or heck even brackets, but somehow the theme is a weird XML sheet and edits are done in the adminCP... it's terrible.

Both the default theme and the entire theme and template system are being replaced in MyBB 1.9. Yes, the current system has a number of issues. But there's really no use in complaining about it at this point because it is being replaced with a more modern, responsive theme and with a modern template system.
