Calling out crumpets

Why does this game attract so many people who

    1) talk about pvp but refuse to play (I don't care if you refuse to play, just don't talk pvp then)
    2) cower when I ask for facts/real math to back up their crumpets

Oh right, here's the game if you're interested

Also I suppose haters hate me because they're still bitter about my poking fun at the person-who-shall-not-be-named

While that is the most significant thing, there are lots of day-to-day choices you make to be an obnoxious person. Example: this thread. Essentially all this person said is they don't like you, and they went out of their way to be as polite about it as possible and try not to make it into a big deal. Oh no, how terrible.

Also, alluding to a thing after you said you wouldn't bring it up again is kind of missing the point behind not bringing it up again.

Someone wanted to commentate a game. I spent precious CPU cycles encoding that game replay and uploading it. I granted his wish and then he found some silly excuse to chicken out. There's no obligation, but people like him are why there's an entire subreddit dedicated to calling people out.

Or would you rather shower attention-seekers with praise, like this guy who said he was working on an Advance Wars clone, got lots of feel-good comments, then admitted the screenshot was photoshopped, then never appeared again? I posted some helpful comments there, but it was all a waste of time.

Now I'll just be short and succinct and call out crumpets as it happens.

i can't imagine even considering becoming part of a small community if it looked like gip was a seriously prominent member of it

i might just find another game

you seem to be providing a really excellent excuse for him to not want to work with you

After uploading the replay, my work was done. If he's too immature to just take the replay at face value and simply provide commentary, that's his choice.

I respect people who actually contribute to the community, not people who troll around with empty comments and fake projects. ALAKTORN helped me with the AW4 speedrun and I have nothing but praise there.

You have 5X the amount of posts than me and your account is newer. Pot, meet kettle.

I hope that if another game somehow comes out, everyone other than Gip thinks long and hard about what a presence like this can do to the online following of a game. I'd wager that he has something to do with the fact that he's one of the only people who still plays.

1. That's not how that idiom works. 2. I've been around here longer than you've been seriously prominent. I'm already here.

I have a wi-fi t-shirt and you don't

Also if you think I actually influenced the online presence of the game, LOL. People would've quit playing the game with or without my influence
