We weren't exactly sending a guy dressed like a pickle to harass him. Like 3 guys told him he should consider being less homophobic 6 months ago and he's apparently still angry about it.

Well this is an overblown reaction if I ever saw one. I can only assume it's related to Facebook or dA stuff, as lazerbot solemnly promised not to read SA anymore after all.

Except that it was valid criticism of homophobia? If anything most goons were being pretty lenient in assuming it was something he would naturally grow out of. Anyone in a creative pursuit should be able to handle constructive criticism without blowing up at their fans. The timing of this is pretty weird though, considering this issue hasn't been brought up in the thread for weeks.

This. As much as I liked the comic, Lazy's personality has been putting me off from it. Guessing those long winded responses weren't epic sick burns. They were legit whining. Maybe this is just an excuse to have people stop hounding him about the comic?

Lazy B posted:

its always something that is some how related to my comic or how it is similar or even have a short resemblance to other peoples works, though they are different.

Mystery solved. He gets like this every-time someone compares it to someone else's stuff. Shame, I thought he had some potential. :smith:

Lazy B posted:

heh so what if perhaps the owner of the cat decided to give the cat what it deserves for biting the hand? perhaps the cat is not fed for days after? is it not a good way to teach it's small minded pets? complain and then gain something to actually complain about in return? what if it came true? what if you were all the cats and you are all starving for food :O oh no not starving are you? "Please!! please give me food'' they say hehe but we don't feed them do we? even buy a completely new brand of cat food huh? i hope you liked the pink and rainbow cat food

Some extra irony here, Lazy was talking about not biting the hand that feeds you, I noticed after the gay-debacle, Goon works of TGT completely stopped.

IT'S YA BOY

For months this thread was doing nothing but praising his unbridled genius, then he says something negative about gay guys, which from his perspective is not a big deal, and suddenly the thread shifts to calling him a hateful homophobe and an idiotic douchebag. Regardless of how accurate or inaccurate that was, how the gently caress did you think he would react?

Yeah, the response was pretty mild. I read it after the fact but as I saw it goons pretty much expressed mild disappointment and a hope that he'd grow out of it and moved on.

Honestly I expected him to end this the second he found the thread, leaving us with the first three chapters of poorly drawn Sonic the Hedgehog revenge fantasy.

For a comic about how all internet trolls are gay and ultimately spineless, it's only fitting that it ends because of internet drama.

To be honest, I don't think that was written in response to anything SA said or did. The timing is too off - SA hasn't really been critical of him in a while. I think it's written in response to criticism other sites have been giving him, or just facebook/personal PMs in general or something.

Not that it makes that kind of reaction to criticism okay - even the worst, most shallow and false criticism you should have more tact in simply ignoring - but I'm just saying I don't think this is a case of "GOONS DONE GOONED UP AGAIN :argh:"

Yeah, I was hoping we'd move on and start wrapping up each team's storyline. For instance, Mario hadn't been seen for ages. I wanted to see the final fight with Tails soul bonding with Sonic and saving the day or whatever.

"wich the worst part was what troll face did to sonic's corpse after words wich was rape it. at that point i looked away"





Lazey B has always been charmingly mad, and endearing crazy. But holy poo poo, I don't see how you can type that without being legitimately insane. How do you sit down at a computer, think those things, and let them spill out your fingers like that? I can only imagine him laughing to himself, getting more manic as he goes on. This is what happens to a kid when you praise him and call him internet God for six months then critique him. He's basically suffered Shyamanlan syndrome in half a year, and this is his big, crazy "Lady in the Water" gently caress you.

At first I thought what Lazerbot meant was he was taking a year off to exclusively work on the comic. In that sense, I'm glad he haven't ruined his life :)

We weren't anywhere close to the end. It was already looking like Rob was going to lose anyway, but at any rate would probably take another chapter to get there. At which point we've had seven battles between non-trolls and trolls (counting the "Bever consert") where the most non-trolls won was killing a single lower-level named troll (Garry) and temporarily disarming Troll King. And if you think about it, Demaro's victory isn't exactly a win for the anti-troll forces per-se.

Consider how many plot-lines we had open:

  • The current Hindo/Rob fight.
  • The "current" Coyote/Demaro fight.
  • What the heck is up with Demaro's skeleton worm? (i.e. there will be at least one more fight with Demaro)
  • Tails still needs to train with Arthur and possibly Frogger and Leapfrog if not Pori
  • Tails still needs to do the soul bind
  • Knuckles is likely to face Mario at some point in another chapter-long fight
  • Trollface needs comeuppance after killing Sylvester
  • The Troll Slaiyers haven't done anything yet to actually achieve their goals (although perhaps they are doing so now)
  • Silver and crew are likely to do something; Elmer still needs to escape
  • What's going on with Ronald McDonald?
  • What's going on with Pori?
  • What's actually going on with Rob? Why does Coyote sense that he's special?
  • The final fight between Tails and the Trolls

Most of those are going to get at least a chapter a piece, so there's plenty more to go around. Even if he only addressed half of these points, he wasn't going to get close to wrapping up any time in the next six months.

He's got some creepy God complex going on from the tone of that rant. Whatever is wrong with him, I think we just made it worse by giving him attention :(

At least we were able to enjoy the ridiculousness of Tails Gets Trolled for a while. I suspect these comics will take on a much darker tone in 10 years when the police find Lazerbot's basement full of corpses crudely disfigured to look like the troll king and "THEY CAN'T TROLL YOU WHEN THERE DEaD!" scrawled on the walls.

He's at the age when mental illness really starts to express its self. That or he's just a weird mad dude.

I think he just expected ever escalating levels of praise. He's been complaining about the lack of songs, the lack of motion comics, the lack of fanart over the last few months. He's snapped and flipped his poo poo at the smallest of criticism when he used to be far more chill. Maybe he felt like he jumped the shark while at the same time feeling betrayed that his fans didn't form some DA-esq hugbox around him.

I certainly enjoyed the comic but the dude needs therapy and a chill pill.

He can't be happy because someone said something mean and he is obviously in need of some kind of mental help.

It was only a matter of time before he stopped, this whole "you so cool Lazey-B!" went right to his head and he became a petty diva.

This was crazy enough for me, but who knows, this might not even be the end of it. You think he can really make it the rest of the whole year without starting some more drama? It's just fishing for compliments and he's probably going to blow up again when goons don't come begging for more pink and rainbow cat food haha what the gently caress comics.
