I've decided to stop running an anti-rip guild, as I no longer have the drive to continue it. That, and an old pc that I'd rather not work to its eventual death so soon.
Some thoughts about rips.
We all know rips are bad for Byond. Look at the last 100 hub entries, it's 80 Naruto games, no real content, all from various source code. But why do people play them? Because some of them are fun. A fun game doesn't become terrible by changing the name. This is not condoning rips, just saying that I understand why those who rip care about ripping someone off about as much as their fanbase cares. Some people just want to feel like a game owner for a short time. I'm going to spend less time attacking rip owners and more time playing the good games and spreading the word about them. To hell with rips, and to hell with bitching about rips. Make and/or play something good like GOA.
