this crossed my feed recently since I use to play this game a bit so figured id make a thread about it. move it if it belongs elsewhere

now I was not super following this drama but my basic understanding here is there were some teams entering some event or something and they named their teams "Trans Fights and Trans Rights." and the devs baned these team names due to how obnoxiously political they are and how they have nothing to do with the game

well seems after having some backlash Paraina games caved to the mob and issued some kind of apology. links below

tweet with the link to their apology tweet post (and peoples responses) archive


direct link to the post where they talk about it archive


what I find funny is since the beast can never be satisfied now it seems people are going after one of the lead devs for retweeting a random user whose mech had a confederate flag on it (tweet / archive)

As one should. Wish they didn't try and apologize for their (correct) actions, but you can't win it all.
It's baffling how companies haven't realised that no matter what they do nothing is enough, you'd think they'd've noticed that by now but guess not.
Why does it even matter I wonder? This game seems rather niche (or at least I haven't heard of it before) and I'd assume most of their players couldn't give a rats ass about trannies.

yee. like im kinda sure the devs would also ban a team if their name was something like "1488 kill all the niBBs" or some shit. political statements should not be in team names for a Tournament.

in terms of the game itself. it's so niche it's on fucken life support. and a lot of that has to do with the devs being absolute fucken retards. and I could go into a whole rant about how they are stupid and made choices that drove the game into the dirt cuz they can't dev a good game to save their lives. so this backdown is tbh not even unexpected. but sill disappointing as there are more important issues they need to deal with

the people who are left prob just want to play big stompy robots and don't care about trannies but it seems the rot has seeped in to try and be the final nail that kills it

Sad, I was gathering a list of games to play when I get my new PC built, sound like I don't need to bother trying it out now sense it's on life support. Leave room for other mech games.

yea and the worst part is IMO it's not even "bad" just the devs have no idea what they are doing and mismanage the fuck out of it so its dieing

shit marketing, silly design choices, whole 9 yards tbh

and now they go ahead and pull this shit. god I wish the Battletech/Mechwarrior brand was in better hands
