    That makes up for everything else that might have happened, does it? They got badgered and yanked around by someone who didnt know what she was doing, forced to pay thousands of dollars for everything else, but skipped out on one grand of it, so that makes it all better.

    I dont know if this is true or not, but if it is, getting a panel for free is almost irrelevant compared to the rest of the problems.

    "informed of their panel time, autograph time or any scheduling until about 2-3 days before they had to fly out"
    --biased source

    yanked around?---No. How were they being "badgered" and who put the gun to their head and forced them to "pay thousands of dollars".

    reddit - why_notch_is_mad_at_yogscast:


    THIS. Pretty much clears the whole picture. The whole Minecon felt like an embarrassment. We must question HOW Yogscast were treated there, before judging any of their alleged actions. Now I understand why Yogscast had this REALLY WEIRD "interview" with Notch, in which THEY DIDN'T DISCUSSED A THING ABOUT MINECRAFT! That's because Notch already had a deal (with IGN?) not to give interviews about Minecraft! But Yogscast still decided to do this fake interview, probably not to disappoint the fans, where they had to pull various random topics not-about-about-minecraft out of their ass - that was really painful to watch. You could actually feel the ridiculousness of the whole situation, by how confused and edgy they looked.

    Were they met with all due respect and professionalism? Were they expected to do Mojang bidding while not being paid for, as accusation of not "cooperating" seems to imply?

    Probably they discussed whole this terrible management issue of Minecon in their group. Were Mojang eavesdropping on them? Then accuse of "talking behind their backs"?

    "A bunch of nerd who don't know how to run a company"? Are they not?

    Not paying for entertainers to come to the show? What is this if not greed?

    I don't think that Yogscast were given all due respect by Mojarng, and they certainly do more than many on YT for Mincraft, even just by being most watched Minecraft show on YT. What is this if not a free advertisement?

    Mojang sure knows how to **** people off, most probably thanks to that Lydia (who looked like a typical ***** by how she acted on Minecon). And Notch is out of touch with reality.

    EDIT: And last accusation doesn't mean they said that to kid instead of to Notch himself.

    They were given a panel for free. Did they need a script or someone to hold their hand and tell them what to do?

    Why was my comment removed? We're not allowed to express our opinion on this? The textures look like crap and it shouldn't have won imo. There were far better texture packs in the contest.

    I agree, it looks like crap.

    Yes, there may be better creations, but I doubt "Building a computer" Is an helpful hint also. I personally find this a little helpful and usefull, like if you want a secret base. (Cant helpful Hints be tutorials too?)


    Sure he may not have been the first, or theres others, but its still pretty cool nevertheless.
    Oh btw, there are millions of usernames are better then yours.


    Who said anything about a computer?

    Quote from Talfreo

    Gravyerd:

    Not everyone is a modder.
    Not everyone is adept enough at redstone to understand the more complex and smoother creations
    Just because you saw it, doesn't mean everyone has (I haven't)
    And god damnit, a tutorial is a tutorial, it doesn't matter. It's a 'helpful hint' because it's showing, step by step, on how to make a redstone staircase, which can lead into secret rooms or passages to hide valuables from other players or unfortunate events. So yes, to me, this is a helpful hint.

    This is a public area, so I won't bash you for saying what you said. But I will say that you were a bit... Narrow-minded in your comment.


    You don't have to be a "modder" to understand redstone. Also, it's not really hidden when there is a lever out in the open for no obvious reason and people online are altering their texture packs.

    @ Bethesda...

    Scrolls!Scrolls!____Scrolls!______Scrolls!____Scrolls!Scrolls!
    Scrolls!Scrolls!____Scrolls!______Scrolls!____Scrolls!Scrolls!

    there... i said it too....

    Quote from MacPeaches

    Are you serious Bethesda?! There are many games that also include 'Scrolls'. It's pretty stupid, why would you sue MineCraft for that....


    Quote from MacPeaches

    I enjoy the Elder Scrolls games but this kinda changes the way I look at Bethesda.



    At least read the page that you are posting on.

    posted a message on "Scrolls" Lawsuit Goes To Court
    Quote from Ratstomper

    Wow, there's so much hyperbole and talking without knowing all the facts here. I read the kotaku post and all it gave me was a snippet of the alleged trademark and a lot of unnecessary vitriol toward notch. These things are easy to take out of context and I would really like to be able to see the whole thing before making any judgments on it.

    However, for my own biased opinion, I prefer Mojang. I played Morrowwind and it kinda sucked. I also played Oblivion and it was sort of better, I guess. The Bethesda games I've played are nothing to write home about. I would choose Minecraft over Skyrim any day simply for the fact I'll get a lot more mileage out of it.

    The excuse that Bethesda "has" to protect its own ass due to enforcing its own branding seems more of an argument against the trademark system than Mojang. Words...sheesh.

    Protip: get the whole story before claiming anathema on anyone.

    On one hand you have research and on the other you have statements made by one person--who is probably not giving the whole story.
    As for your opinion. Oblivion is nothing compared to Morrowind--Oblivion is like morrowind lite that was ported over from console.

    Protip: Practice reading comprehension and "get the whole story before claiming anathema on anyone."

    Quote from Jin Shepard

    What some maby not realize is that this dragon he made is probably not with any 3d schematic thing like the other dragon posted on the reply's here. It's obvious to me that that one was made with a 3d program which imo is not impressive at all.

    BS
    Even if the other person did use a "3d schematic thing" (voxelization program) he would still be placing one block at a time.

    posted a message on Bethesda, Mojang & "Scrolls"
    This is what Notch's Scrolls trademark application covers:

    Entertainment services in the form of electronic, computer and video games provided by means of the Internet and other remote communications device; internet games (non downloadable); organising of games; games (not downloadable) played via a global computer network; education and entertainment services in the form of cinematographic, televisual, digital and motion picture films, radio and television programs and shows; preparation, editing and production of cinematographic, televisual, digital and motion picture films, radio and television programs; entertainment services in the form of electronic, computer and video games provided by means of the Internet, mobile telephone and other remote communications device.

    In other words, Mojang intends to own the word "scrolls" in pretty much every form of visual entertainment media, not just in videogames. This means that, if the trademark is upheld, the company could rightly take action against anyone else using the word "scrolls" in any form of media whatsoever. Now, that would only be a problem if you were a successful media company planning to use the word "scrolls" in some form of entrainment media … Oh wait … that's right. If you're Zenimax, this trademark ****s you. Hard.

    The section applying for trademarks on the use of the word "scrolls" in videogames is similarly broad (and potentially harmful to Zeni), covering:

    Computer games; video games; computer software; computer and video games software; computer software downloaded or downloadable; computer software publications downloaded; interactive entertainment software; data recorded electronically from the Internet; data recorded in machine readable form from the Internet; discs, tapes, cartridges, CD-ROMs and other magnetic, electronic or optical media, all bearing computer games software or video games; electronic amusement apparatus for use with television receivers; electronic games apparatus; home video game machines.

    Also, on Sept 13th two weeks before Zenimax filed suit against Mojang the United States Patent and Trademark Office Filed this:
    The examining attorney refuses registration under Trademark Act Section 2(d), 15 U.S.C. §1052(d), because the applicant's mark ... so resembles the marks in U.S. Registration Nos. 2634683, 2861127, 3375520, 3421731 and 3584564 (THE ELDER SCROLLS) and 4010219 (SCROLLS) as to be likely to cause confusion, to cause mistake, or to deceive. ... Regarding the THE ELDER SCROLLS marks, the applicant has merely deleted the term ELDER from the registered mark. The mere deletion of wording from a registered mark may not be sufficient to overcome a likelihood of confusion.

    Quote from WarBarney

    Or when somebody concisely explains what the hells going on, all the first post says is *they are sueing them for using the scrolls name and they wanted to play quake*. Then people like you say *why do people post*. Is there something he's entirely not said? and if so why do you expect people to read all 14 pages before responding? perhaps you should make another thread with all the details

    You don't have to read "all 14 pages". Why would you even respond? Perhaps you should learn how to read.

    Quote from mh_mini

    I wasn't aware that Mojang was trying to trademark the word scrolls across all fields of media at the time of the post. Probly going to be looking more in depth. So far all of the info I've managed to get is from the minecraft forums and there *might* be some bias here. An outside resource with complete details of the lawsuit would be helpful.

    There has been a link to an article posted on this page and the one before it--as well as Notch's blog.
