So the Escapist is running it's usual fanboy war this year pitting developers against each other in a giant flame war. However something entertaining has sprung out of it. Zynga, the company known for paying a company to make them a game, saying it wasn't good enough then changing the artwork and releasing it anyway have been dominating. Thanks to offering game credits for voting and tweeting about the contest (this year tweeting about the vote earns a second vote) Zynga has taken out both NCSoft and Infinity Ward. So the forums have banded together over one common goal. Get. Zynga. Out.
Their next contest is against Rockstar North, but everyone's waiting for the one after that to really lay the smackdown. If the biggest scammers on the net can take the GTA creators down, they face Turbine. The reigning champions despite having only released a handful of fairly average MMOs but proudly holding aloft a hugely devoted fanbase. I'd recommend keeping an eye on this thread tomorrow
because I have a feeling the shitstorm is going to be on the Sterling scale.
