There are crucial parts in life where you must make tough choices, I am there right now. My time here is done, let me explain you why:
I have been here for 4 years now, and seen everything from the iOS Golden Age -started on 2010, before that were different times, can’t compare- to nowadays. Around 2010 iOS was a gaming revolution for creativity, there were no limits there and projects didn’t need millions of dollars in budgets so we saw some unique and genuine games come by made by gamers that always had that idea but never got the means to do it, and Apple did that for them, they took the opportunity in presenting new ways to play and a vivid imagination that couldn’t be possible anywhere else. On that times, IAP was a tiny thing, I remember thinking “Oh, what’s this?” when I first saw it, and from that very first time, I saw what it could mean to gaming. Four years later, IAP is the absolute demise of the platform, we all know it, and it is inevitable. It has crippled creativity and the industry, we all saw it coming. There are still signs of premium games, but just look at Top Grossing and realize where is the money. It is a really bad thing, and what are doing about it? Nothing, we can’t even complain, because if you do, you will get a warning from Touch Arcade, and probably banned. What the flip TA? Are you really bending over? Or are the mods all powerful gods? I seen pretty disgusting jokes from certain mods about banning people just because the felt like it, for fun.
Like CygnetSeven, who shared this information on the Fight Club. He said: “We have added a Ban Button on Connector´s profile, so anyone can ban him when he wishes”. WTF dude? -He said he was joking when I confronted him but jokes are half-truths- Connector owns a forum that focuses on iOS games, he does a lot of work there, a lot of reviews, news and he even beta tests mfi controls. What do you do besides joking about people, backstabbing and speaking poop about others? Is your life so lame that you need to make fun of other to compensate? flip you, I left your group, I don’t like you, the rest are nice but you are skum. Lena, Undeadcow and Sink or Swim are nice, as well as Cloudpuff or Slamraman, but there rest? Connector got more insults in there than any other thread combined on this forum. Connector, you call them friends, but AndyC83, SyntheticVoid, MetalCasket, Exact-Psience has said a lot of poop about you. Your so called friends tagging you and replying all the time are backstabbing you on the back. And even wanted to change the name of the group to We Hate Connector” All mods should leave their mod status and new ones should be called in. If all mods are like CygnetSeven, may the gods be with us. Metalcasket, Killercow or New England Gamer are similar.
If you speak about IAP on TouchArcade, you are highly like to get a ban. Take AWP´s example. He rightfully complained about IAP in a game I don’t even remember anymore, from Juyubee. What was the result? He got banned. What happened after that? That game adapted to each of the requests of AWP, both that and official reviews proved him right in all fronts, he didn’t get any mention, and TA didn’t even reviewed that, so much pride, so little reason for it. So what are you so afraid of TA? Why banning everyone who opposes the method? AWP has proven that people can make things for the better… that game is right now better. It changed for the better. Imagined what would have happened if you didn’t ban everyone, maybe we could have a brighter future… maybe our opinions –after all, everyone who has been here long enough is +- a hardcore gamer and know the AppStore very well- could have changed something. You want to know a secret, you wanna know why there is no more outburst with IAP or wrong things? Because TouchArcade bans everyone who mentions it. You wont see any bad reviews, even if they are legit, because they systematically ban everyone if they mention the dev or IAP, there have been many members like that, who gives honest opinions and got banned for it. As a result, I cant trust the place anymore, and so should you. Eli don’t have any friends, or things to do, as a result, he has too much time on his hands. That is bad, as you start overthinking everything to some extremes. He has become anal retentive. Ever since the site was in his hands, things have gone for the worst.
