To be honest calling this a squabble might be overstating things. Contract allowed him to cancel and take his art with him, OPTIONALLY renegotiate a different revenue agreement and if not, then not....

He did just that. Case closed. The one who should be flamed is the retarded main developer who actually let such a clause be written in a freelance contract

So I have to actually give kudos to the artist for pulling this. Well, even though nobody sane would contract him ever again after this

He was talking specifically to the sites (like the verge and polygon) that rushed to release clickbait and not properly report on the facts. At the time he disclosed that the content in question was in fact promoted.

It doesn't even matter, because 2014 there were no disclosure rules for paid sponsorships on youtube. A fact that any decent journalist would have noticed by googling for 1 minute. Even so, he did disclose it. So the actual news was "Youtuber ran paid promotion and disclosed it".. well shit, doesn't really work as clickbait now does it...

I hate these gossip mags

They have very good reasons for not allowing this, as it would definitively give players an unfair advantage that is not related only to the FOV.

The point that people are missing to this entirely, is that this game does not function like most other weapon-based FPS games. This one is ability based.


The Ult of MC is the only ability that works like this. Even soldier aimbot does only work near targeting reticule and you have to actually kinda aim there as well... so it's not like that would take a giant change... target selection for MC only what player targets in the spin-up (which would give that ability actually some skill element which it currently entirely lacks)

Increased FOV lets you see more to your sides without turning increasing your situational awareness. It doesn't improve your aim.

Increased your situational awareness can be argued as an advantage, whether it's unfair or not, that's a bit more contentious.

It makes aiming harder. And if you don't have relative fov adjustment on "zoom" weapons it also makes those weapons zoom *less* so there is no advantage. In fact too high FOV often breaks first person aim entirely, only BF4 (The only REAL shooter currently) as adaptive fov when you have a zoom scope or just merely "aim down sighs" allowing you to actually see as far as someone on a 4:3/5:4 screen would.

Not when switching between a 16:9 and 21:9 screen, there would be no real difference in character sizes on screen, or zoom levels for that matter, because you'd only be gaining horizontal screen space, thus there are no changes to aiming...

In Overwatch you do not gain horizontal screen space though thanks to their idiotic "FOV / Aspect Ratio" implementation. On 21:9 you are zoomed in more, meaning you have to move your mouse pointer more than someone at 16:9.


Sorry, I meant if they implemented it correctly.

The joke is, if they *had* implemented AR/FOV correctly, this wouldn't even be a news worthy topic since they would support all resolutions and all aspect ratios and you would be perfectly right in that 21:9 does not give any advantage for aiming ;p

I just don't get it... screen choice is not something a game should balance around so it makes no sense why Blizzard of all the devs now feels the need to do this. Not to mention implementing 21:9 in this absurd manner and still not properly supporting 5:4 and 4:3 either... however rare those resolutions might be nowadays.

It's a skill game, and resolution choice won't do a damn thing to increase or decrease someones skills. Just.. absurd

Russia Today article, which has more truth on it than any POS Western Media organization

when multiple people tell you you're crazy, you should listen to them. your perspective of reality is warped and wrong. you need to listen to us if you want to save yourself. putin is a dictator and RT is putin.

It's actually amazing how many people think Russia Today is a news outlet.... but then I often find that especially older people have nearly no media competence and do NOT check who wrote the news story, instead they believe whatever you serve them, as long as it is posted on some "alternative" media.. bah

It amazes me how many people, and often younger people, think the mainstream forms of media are so bad they flock to ones that clearly have even less oversight towards any kind of honesty.


Young people can't know what is good and what is bad reporting. You need to have a certain level of education and awareness of world politics as well as your countries social and political structures to understand what is propaganda and what isn't.

Also there is the real problem that nowadays many people want opinion reinforcement in their news media, not challenge. This can hardly be blamed on their age, rather the society they grow up in that does no longer value (or never really valued) critical thinking.

And then you have older people who in their over emphasized critical thinking don't believe the moon landing was real. Imo those are completely lost. You can not convince someone of the opposite if all he is looking for is proof for his world view.

Permanent ban for team killing is ridiculous unless your game is free-to-play. Ban them for 2 weeks and let them team kill as long as they want. I guarantee you anybody who actually wants to play the game will stop after a couple of 2 week bans. Make it 30 days even but permanent is overkill.

Permanent bans make them more money ,)

I feel like to end this weird exchange, let's make 1 thing clear. Cliffski talks about impartial reviews. A store recommendation isn't a review. It's literally the opposite of impartial as well, worst case, a paid-for, best case an selective advertisement. Same for the book snippets and the Album "sponsored" nonsense on iTunes. Those are not reviews, those are ads. And at least in German iTunes, clearly marked as such.

What cliffski wants is STEAM employees writing impartial reviews.. for steam games. The "party" these reviews are employed by is the one making a profit with every sale. That is the OPPOSITE of impartial. If you don't see how that is unethical and hopefully also illegal then I am bedazzled.. but surely at the very least you see that these reviews are never impartial?? Do you not understand what the word impartial means here? How can a steam employed reviewer be impartial when reviewing games on Steam? And if he only reviewed the "more popular" games, he would not be creating reviews, he would be creating advertisement.

Good idea, also illegal as fuck.. store reviewing it's own sold products when that store also sells their VERY OWN products.. in what 3rd world country does the guy live where this is allowed and legal?

With 6000+ Windows games on Steam your point mind hold water if Valve made 5999 of them, or 2000, or 1000, or 500, or 100, or 50, or even 35... See where I'm going.
Would it be illegal for Valve to review games that they did not make? I guess it would be illegal for them to post something like this
Play the world's number 1 online action game. Engage in an incredibly realistic brand of terrorist warfare in this wildly popular team-based game. Ally with teammates to complete strategic missions. Take out enemy sites. Rescue hostages. Your role affects your team's success. Your team's success affects your role.
Because they do it on the main store page of Counter-Strike. So Valves reviewers can't review Valve games. I'm ok with that.

With the VR funding initiative the waters would get blurred hard though... also that blurb is not a review, that is a sales pitch. And the Nr.1 claim is fact. On Steam that game IS number 1 according to all stats.... however sad that might be ,) You have to be truthful when you sell shit but nowhere does it say you have to show reviews.

My main point is that unless you could guarantee 100% impartial independent and not prejudging reviews this would open a can of worms that is absolutely unneeded and potential nightmare material. It would take 1 bribed "official" reviewer and this entire system tumbles down in a shitstorm

And for what? So that Cliff gets 1 fair review?

Even if, assuming Steam would be banned from reviewing it's own made (and funded) stuff, this were legal, unless every reviewer would disclose essentially their entire life SOME dev SOMEWHERE is gonna sue. You know it will happen. And I don't see why that is in any way a good idea.

Keep such nonsense away from Steam is what I am saying

"Illegal." That's hilarious, dude. I mean, A+, amazing trolling here. Like, the level of ignorance on display is truly astounding. Double down next time.

Illegal in the EU at least, for sure, unethical as fuck everywhere else. Collusion and danger of bribery and corruption.. and for what? So that 1 fair review per game gets showcases SOMEWHERE on steam?

Anyway, no point to reply to you beyond that~

I just think this would destroy walls that should not be destroyed. Steam is a store, it's bad enough that with VR funding and hardware sales it's a muddy as hell affair already, it is not the place you go to to cry when user reviews beat your game up.

What Steam needs is MORE distance from reviews, not less. A better rating system for user reviews and a better rating and report system to use ON user reviews....
