It doesn't matter if they do cite sources and provide facts because in the land of orange juice the truth isn't the truth. If the names were known the kneejerk outcry would be"alt-facts alt-facts!" so your whole "gimme names and facts" line is total garbage and doesn't hold up. You've already shown your playbook and we know what happens when the sources and facts are presented and the simpleton ways those are also dismissed. Oops.Solar_Prophet said:Sorry, but the modern mainstream press (gaming and otherwise) just doesn't have the credibility to get away with using anonymous sources anymore. If you can't provide a name or any evidence to back up the statements made by a 'source', then the 'story' is bullshit.
That being said, at least this site clearly marked it as a rumor. Polygon, IGN, or Kotaku probably would've tried to pass it off as fact.
tawess said:Pretty much line up with how NCSoft have acted over the years. They cut Paragon a massive amount of slack with CoH. It was never a big earner and the studio did have a fair amount of issues as far as organization. But i did honestly thought it was a good but not enough thing and not a "you pissed in my cereal" thing. The later is way more justified and in some ways make more sense. Especially as there was rumors of things like that going back to the early days of CoH.
So i can belive this, in fact it makes a bit to much sense.
tinnis said:related: steven sharrif is still the head moderator of the previously community ran subreddit /r/ashesofcreation after it was handed over to them the other month.
there was no announcement about it happening until it was pointed out.
they have made no effort to hand it back to the community whatsoever.
nor are any of the employees or official discord mod replacements active on the subreddit or even reddit in general.
here is an example of steven's public comments on subreddit moderation stances
