Otherwise known as hypocrisy
(if like me, you're not a millennial and you use the right word for the right occasion, PC notwithstanding. If this annoys, stick to 'double standards')
Why double standards/hypocrisy?
Remember when a couple of months back the SotA devs asked and pleaded for their players to 'upvote' SotA everywhere? Remember the outcry? A rightful outcry too, i protested myself. Even though I AM A 500$ supporter, i complained along with everyone else. Wrong is wrong, we all felt so good stating it.
(this is where the knowledgeable crowd starts loling, the rest keep reading)
Except just a few days ago, the Pantheon team did exactly the same thing. Proper official post, typed by the head of PR, in the --official-- announcements sub forum, asking us to do what? You guessed it; "help" them by ""upvoting"" their game.
Now that it's done, all i see is hoorays and congratulatory pats on the back. All's fine in the Shire. Ben (aforementioned head of PR) even posted back in that thread, thanking them all for their efforts!!! We now even have a proper new thread, where we can all tell each other how awesomuzzz we arez!
(no, i didn't """help""", not like that. I helped with my money, fair. Transparent)
(yes, i am a backer. 300$ tier. So no, i am NOT a 'hater')
And because most of you are children/mentally underdeveloped:
A resounding YES, i support Pantheon, a resounding YES, i wish them the very best.
But my ethics, my sense of right and wrong..they just are. Sans "exceptions". This was pure manipulation; the key tool of hype. And we all know about hype.
Since when can the little people use every tool at their disposal without even a social hiccup and the others cannot?
More to it, when will you (those of you that are) fanboys CEASE being fanboys and start being functioning individuals?
Am i honestly the only one annoyed by all this?
