Is there any reason in particular why Xenforo was chosen as the next forum software?

In reality VerticalScope have been moving their entire portfolio to Xenforo, so the choice is not unique to OCN. We do not make these decisions internally.

That being said, Xenforo is a mature and stable platform. It is well structured and offers ease of function. The good thing with Xenforo (like with Vbulletin) is it is highly customizable. As each site has its own needs and wants, having a platform that can accommodate a high level of custom development is a must.

We are pleased with the choice, we cannot speak for other sites but it is well suited to OCN.

I am measuring at least 19 browser trackers blocked by Adblocker Ultimate, and also the side panel at the right among with the browser trackers ... they slow down the browsing experience in the speed of a moving turtle.
Any plans so this to change to the better?

This was an item I bough up many times since we moved to VS. This is something I have asked them again recently and I was told that this count would be reduced. I will be following up with them again on this as it is part of the my migration plan. That being said, overall the trackers they wish to use is ultimately up to them, but hoping they can work with us on improving this.

Hope it works. Another forum I am on recently migrated to Xenforo and a while it works, a lot of features were lost, even simple things like signatures. So you can imagine I'm a bit skeptical on Rig Builder and Rep system.

Also wondering if this will improve performance of the site? Since the last migration this site has been rather slow and laggy to load and navigate. Wasn't sure if that was the platform or something else.

The site performance looks to improve yes. The new xenforo platform leverages much newer web technologies than this very old VB platform, that and the fact the site will be getting a spring cleaning in the backend (Nothing you would see) it will help optimize loads. I see no reason for the new site not to be improved with respects to load performance etc.

Nope, even if they did, I will re-open it as the discussion is important.
