Holy loving Christ what is wrong with you. The refunds were super, give yourself a pat on the back for helping set that wheel in motion, but what it has evolved into is insanity. After your lawyers help you piece together your blog (which should definitely not name drop a bunch of random kids), get in touch with someone to help piece together your life.

Hey I know acting like a toddler throwing a temper tantrum is your thing but this is still super weird. No one is going to face legal repercussions over this incredibly tame stuff and you should reevaluate your life and mental state. If you really want to be a big baby with the thinnest skin in the world and sue away, go ahead. But parading everything out in the open with real names of random people on the internet makes you look like an idiot. Has CIG run out of thing to keep you busy or what? HTH.

i really wish there were some more Games 'events' or 'projects'

we had the shitposter challenge for a while which I liked a lot, but it can be tough to get people involved

with the advent of free to play games we could probably more reliably do that Games Roulette thing that people used to do in MMO

like we could all goonrush a F2P game for a week or two

idk

I recall this happening in some MMO (Age of Wushu I think) that provided a ton of stories in the grieving thread. Throwing up liquor on other players to forcibly make them drunk, tricking players in to killing goons which would result in a bounty that put them in jail for like a week real time (execution and castration was added later), surprise murder plots on fishermen, etc. Goons can get pretty drat creative and it's fun to read the resulting insanity. I am all for the idea.

Since we're in the process of burning Klueless Karl, my turn.

Remember when he said some nonsense about my "non existent" legal action as per what I posted here and later moved to my blog?

Well, I went to our archives and randomly dug up some invoices (1, 2, 3)from the named legal firms in that last action. In fact, my calculations were off. When I
looked at our Quickbooks ledger, the amount for just that action across 4 law firms, a PI firm, a forensics imaging firm etc was $609, 738.86

There you have it.

Teehee, I randomly came across some diplomas invoices when I was cleaning my desk! I'm such a card!

  • Promise to issue no-questions-asked refunds to anyone who requests it between now and final delivery of the product.
  • Provide a firm date of delivery for this game. Saying that itís coming in 2016, is completely unacceptable.
The minute you comply with all of the above, you have my word (I am old school like that) that I will consider the matter closed forthwith. And I will thus excuse myself from this whole thing, leaving you to deal with the impending consequences of your mistakes, over-inflated ego, and arrogance."

It actually is, and while I'm giving Dsmart the benefit of the doubt, I can't imagine this would qualify for a RICO situation.

It's what they brought against FIFA if I'm remembering correctly. It's a pretty big deal in the US.

Yeah, and FIFA was involved with much MUCH more serious things. The Justice Department tried to apply RICO where they could, but even then was difficult when it came to FIFA because of acts (such as racketeering, murder, bribing, whatever) committed by separate defendants rather than an organization as a whole. This absolutely will not come to a RICO situation.

Looked at your discussion with him and you both look like idiots. And then you defended Derek with this, which is just astounding. If you could repost your SC meltdown from Reddit before you deleted your account that would complete the saga.
