The Meaning of Life, the Universe, and Everything.
what is life with out a little scandal for all we know the yogscast crew could of sayed no and the kid after not getting his auto graph made this up just to get revenge im shur it is was just a miss understanding
I'm dumbfounded. I highly doubt that all of these claims really are true. Yogscast is crude, but they aren't downright assholes. From the interview with Notch, they seemed to have gotten along with each other quite well.
And by the way, Yogscast is one of the big factors in Minecraft getting famous. They are the biggest source of Minecraft entertainment in all of the internet, which pretty much means that they are, for a fact, the biggest source of Minecraft's income.
I can see the yogscast being total asses. It would make sense (they are obviously making videos for the money = youtube partnership), and through what Notch has said, it seems the yogscast must have said and done some things which really made team Mojang pissed.
I guess Mojang is...
*puts on sunglasses*
Notch their friend anymore.
I see what you did there, hehe.
Anyways, if they really did all those things can you really attribute it to them just being sarcastic and/or them playing around? I remember watching the early Yogscast videos but, it does slightly seem like things went to their head.. Once again, if this did happen, I hope to never hear another word of them again. Just hearing all this made me nearly grab one of the swords off the wall, steal a Blackbird, and take a few days on slicing them up.
God dammit Notch.He would have no chance at winning if he started an argument. People like the Y-Cast more than him, simple as that. They just need to talk this out and fix what Notch just messed up saying this on Twitter.
.....I hope that's not true, that just because a great deal of people like some people they will side with them no matter how wrong they were. This is making me sick, I can't wait until this blows over. ><
From what Notch just said, he kinda scares me. I wouldn't want to be near him right now. And all this over a misunderstanding!?!?!?!?!? Just try to understand what happend instead of jumping to cuclusions. Mind before words. You can never take words back. And f**k that kid who did that =he's a jerk
This really sux,I love the yogscast and notch but I do agree with the fact that the yogscast should watch there language around children and if they are doing all these things intentionally not jokingly then well idk wat to say . But I think i will side with notch how hes more respectful towards his fans and doesnt want someone ruining it for him. But even with my decision i will not unsubscribe to the yogscast. even if they say there side and are pretty discriminate i will still watch there videos because there funny. My prediction is that this is all a huge misunderstanding and the yogscast are just trolling and loling and having fun.
I have only one thing to say: Yogscast deserves whatever negative criticism Notch gave. Yogscast became popular because of Notch's game, and they really shouldn't be doing this to Notch anyway. Go Mojang!
I'll be honest, they're known. But they certainly aren't what made it popular. It was by word of mouth and the game itself that made Minecraft so popular. Let's look at it a little bit:
One person buys Minecraft and really enjoys it! They upload a video to YouTube, or tell their friends what they built, or how the game goes (i.e. how you can do practically whatever you want and create the world around you). Those friends/viewers see how cool it is/can be, and get it for themselves. Shortly after that, they tell their friends, and then you have a chain of the repeating system over and over, resulting in a spread of excitement and enjoyment of the game, not unlike the spread of the Plague. If someone is to upload a video of themselves and their friends playing online, that would also be a major selling point (it's how I found out).
In truth, no one person or group is responsible for the popularity of the game. If there is/was, it would be the team of Mojang, for creating and developing such a popular game. We all would have found out about it, one way or another, regardless of whoever got it and played it. Had Minecraft not been as exciting and the way it was during the Beta testing, I can guarantee that it would be another indie game that wouldn't have had its own convention, or such a big release, or any of the stuff it has now. Nor would it have gone through as many phases as it did to get it near spotless.
If it is just a big "troll" post, then we all seriously need to get over ourselves. It's typical drama, and the world is filled with it. </rant>
