GamingThread Epic’s Statement on Misinformation & Abuse [See Staff Post] [UP: Devs release statement]
Reason User Banned (Two Weeks): Ignoring staff post
I can't say I'm surprised by the reaction; this is how toxic the gaming community has always been. I'm not really sure how to curtail the behavior either because the worst 1-10% are responsible for the abuse. Unfortunately, this is the situation now because of Epic's image problem in the community and the repercussions of anyone doing business with them right now, which the Ooblets developers tried to do damage control pre-emptively, just extremely poorly. Not sure if Epic handling the PR themselves would be much better, but they could provide resources or tell Developers what not to say or do while making their exclusivity announcement like maybe not implying you can't care about Climate Change and not like the EGS at the same time.
