Evolving MGT470 Guild Logo
Sometimes these articles could write themselves! Damn Lori decided to hold a public contest to give away some minor rewards, all you had to do was enter it by creating a photoshop image with the stock she provided. Not only did she reward a member of MGT470, she rewarded that greedy money loving carpetbagging assbutter Isaiah of all people!
LULZ. My insane brains are actually divided on this one. Damn Lori was herself a member of MGT470, but she has been pretty quiet about that after MGT470’s repeated fuckups exposed on the SotA forum and the MGT470 forum by myself some months ago. Perhaps Damn Lori saw the better part of wisdom and put a condom between her and the rest of those fuckin carriers. I can’t decide if she gave it to Isaiah because he might try to start a MGT470 class action lawsuit against her if he didn’t win or if she just did it out of pity for him.
I mean shit, a public contest is held and the reward goes to a member of the same guild as the organiser and he happens to be the biggest money driven greedy twat in the community! This shit is gold guys, thanks for making my day!
What can you expect? It seems that Shroud of the Avatar only release information to sources which are very very cosy with them!
Here are my comments, in which I was banned for. I even said it was a great article and didn’t blame the author! 🙂
Fair enough I did get one thing wrong according to Andy Cortez a SotA Dev who has corrected me on Art sourced from Unity. I made a correction post on that which was also deleted here is what Andy had to say:
@aInsaneMembrane we actually do not buy assets and give them to people
I made a few more comments on the article which were also removed I didn’t back any of them up I didn’t figure it would be required. I should have learned my lessons on that by now!
To be continued, Polygon…
Wow, so these foos over at Polygon have read the post I put against the SotA housing article, deemed it warn-worthy and have provided me with a warning. For more background see my article in response to the Polygon/SotA ‘interview’ here: https://insanemembrain.wordpress.com/2013/09/17/polygon-article-sota-housing/
They obviously didn’t do their homework and have no idea what they are talking about, but what can you expect from people these days in any case? I don’t have issues with the dev team, lawl. I’ve got issues with nubs who post articles about bullshit which comes from sources whom are either indifferent or just provide an opinion which doesn’t represent the rest of the SotA community. Which wasn’t even consulted or given a chance to participate by the way.
I think what pisses me off the most, I wasn’t even trolling them. Didn’t spew out a bunch of curse words either. Under their own guidelines the only thing they could have removed my post for was trolling, and that would have been a long stretch, but for some moderators as you know just having a disagreement with them equals trolling.
Now that I think about it, maybe I should get them the real information and get that post corrected. As they have stated this:
Polygon makes every effort for stories to be completely accurate upon publication. Inaccurate stories will be corrected but not removed.
Well in any case, I have re-posted and kept it a bit more generic… Lets see how they like this one:
Great article. I support SotA currently at the Citizen level KickStart pledge level and am looking forward to it.
I am wondering though about the sources of your article? I have a Dev+ Forum account, but there was no mention or discussion on this prior to release. I have also not seen Tina Swafford (aka Fireangel) or Lori Treleaven (aka Dame Lori) pop up in any of the developer profiles on the SotA form. They are also not listed as staff.
Who exactly are they, and how do they have accurate information from inside the Shroud of the Avatar team?
So something has my panties in a bunch, and holy shit it isn’t Air Marshal Owain this time!
It is this article on Polygon. It features “information” on Shroud of the Avatar Housing from two sources, what they have in common is that they are both women and both dev+ backers(even though one of them was given free dev+).
- developer+ community member: Fireangel.
- developer+ community member: DameLori(or some shit like that)
I have recently touched a little bit on Fireangle in this article about Chick Loot. Not going to waste much time on Damn Lori because all she does is re-blog shit, doesn’t have any thoughts of her own.
Why does this suck? Well, some guy is putting information out there about SotA using only two community members who don’t really care about the housing and haven’t been given any additional information about housing from the Portalarium. Why even write the article?
So, why did two women who were dev+ backers get a chance to do this? Well I suspect FireLotus, Community Manager at SotA, selected her girlfriends Fireangel and Damn Lori to do it for us. This wasn’t a competition which was won by those users, it wasn’t earned, it was simply given. I do know plenty of people on the forum(both dev and non-dev) who have better ideas, opinions, and experience with housing than the two people selected. Those points could have been presented to the interviewer to enrich that article in any number of ways.
I know I am not the only one whom is also a Dev+ backer who is a little bit jaded by this. We have all been contributing and have been active with some very visible, but they were not given this opportunity, because we were skipped over for a brainless re-blogger and a charity case.
You don’t have to take my word for it. I take screen shots of everything(click to zoom) I do, I knew one day I’d eventually piss enough people off to get banned. Here are some of the things Fireangel and Lori had to say:
“…I’m no more ‘privy’ to facts than anyone else.” – Fireangel
“Starr did not screen anything and didn’t even have any idea what my opinion on housing is…” – Damn Lori
