Quote of the Day

“Any public accusations on the forums accusing GMs or the company of any such activities will be removed, and everyone contributing in the thread will be banned from the forums. GM activity is always monitored by us.”

~ Tasos on the totalitarian regime around Darkfall

This quote, pulled from a larger post, boggles the mind.  Don’t complain, just trust that we monitor ourselves, or else we’ll ban you for suggesting that we are corrupt when we say we’re not?

    I don’t know which one bothers me more: Darkfall’s horrible state of polish or its developers’ attitude towards the community. Either way, I’ll never touch this game, regardless of how awesome I think the concepts are.

    The money used on PR class was well spent.

    That is such a major screw up. They would have been better served not saying anything at all about it.

    Full quote please:
    GM activity is always monitored by us. If you would like to report GM conduct, then you should use support.darkfallonline.com to do so if you have proof of misconduct.

    Does not sound that harsh.

    Darkfall has a problem with this accusation of cheating GMs in favor of this or that player/clan.

    Keen mentioned it on his blog, and there was really no shred of evidence or what the GM is supposed to have done. He was there, that he did more than watch is just speculation. I read some other Darkfall GM’s cheating reports, and well, they were just that… blogosphere rumors.

    I say they are too harsh with the banstick, but the general notion to post to support is okay.

    Darkfall is not the first company that bans on public accusations or removes comments directed at developers or GMs, Blizzard does the same.

    Talk about talking out your @ss..I mean….

    This could have been said so much better. You can tell that there are so “sales” mouthpieces breathing down anyones throat saying “Uh, dude, you cannot say that”

    Is that good or bad?

    I know it is an issue for people to call out others, especially those in charge…but Tasos proves once again, he does NOT know what he is doing…

    Thus, the reason to never touch any game with his hands on it.

    That’s just painful to read.

    Also remind me to kill a weaker member of the blogroll and eat them.

    Well, could have been said better yes but…

    To truly understand this line you must frequent the Darkfall forums. Complaints are never;

    “Hello Darkfall Community. The GMs have been getting dirty I have included links /here/ /here/ and /here/ with my proof.”

    they are generally;

    “WTF. The DF gm’s r FVCKING CORUPT! wtf dood. Fook this game and its bugs and cheating and its murder of innocent children in cold blood, me and my 113 accounts are done!”

    And then it receives approximately 13 pages of varying idiots in reply.

    For some reason this one reminded me of Chris Knight’s fight with Viacom.

    For those who came in late (old Phantom saying), as part of Chris’s campaign for a spot on his local Board of Education he created a video which he put on Youtube so he could host it on his Blog.

    Now on its VH1 network, Viacom have a show called Web Junk 2.0 which is basically a TV version of those websites that pull together the interesting/funny/stupid videos you find in abundance on the ‘net, and one of the videos they grabbed, aired, and commented on was Chris’s campaign video.

    A little flattered, and rather amused, Chris taped that episode, made a new video out of the segment showing his own video (and Web Junk 2.0’s commentary), added some of his own commentary, then uploaded it to Youtube, too.

    Shortly afterward Chris was notified by Youtube that they had removed his second video. Why? Because Viacom had sent Youtube a C&D letter claiming Chris’s video was in breach of copyright.
