So there is this guild, called MGT470. It certainly has a few winners in it’s ranks, and by winners what I mean are immature forum kiddies.
It only took the MGT470 forum kiddies about two weeks to learn that they can now spam out the upvotes, as if nobody would actually notice lawl.
Their users in the SotA forum have gone from very very few likes, because those particular users are usless wastes of space(I’m looking at you Izzy!) to hundreds in just a few hours. Yeah, that isn’t suspicious at all guys.
Don’t believe me? Well, I do know a member of MGT470 who is fairly high up in their Guild. This member was alienated when one of the members of MGT470 started posting abuse against one of the actual SotA dev team, after which was not only supported but continued by other MGT470 members. It was pretty crazy. Those members even posted about me and the microtransactions subject in their own forum to vent, this is where I have to give some of their leadership kudos, because they were sensible enough to disagree with them and tell them to back the fuck off the Dev and calling me names 😛
Now, MGT470 have launched a pretty impressive campaign to clean up their image in the SotA forums in the past week or so. All of the content has been pretty well edited and cleaned up to reflect a more down to earth MGT470.
My contact couldn’t disclose any information about why they cleaned up, but I assume it was just so they didn’t continue to look like giant ass hats! But what he did give me are a few interesting screen shots, and one on the topic of Upvote Spam.
Firstly, it was pushed in their weekly meeting according to the contact and attendee:
Then after that additional information was posted on how to make it even easier, lead by DavenRock, Isaiah, and Gunga Din(I had a better opinion of you Gunga wtf!).
Now this is pretty funny, simply because when the new forums went live I made three suggestions.
- Do not allow Animated Gifs for Avatars of Signatures & have a Signature Approval Process
- Remove the Like feature.
- Remove the Points feature.
Even funnier, they were all denied as you can see here:
So of course, the first thing that happens, idiot users start to spam out fucking ridiculous animated GIF signatures. I responded with one that would be sure to make my point, after that they no longer accepted users submitting animated GIFs… This nearly got me banned, but it had to be done.
Now in response to points 2 and 3, I have posted this article. I’m not a genius, but any idiot can see these things coming when forum kiddies get involved.
