Taken off of Notch's twitter
I can only hope this isn't late
Seriously, who f-bombs a kid?
Wow Yogscast i thought they were funny and stuff but this makes them look like gigantic dicks.
Also another guy talks about Yogscast at minecon here:
Like some proof from the kid on the signing stuff.
there's absolutely no proof they did this, wait for a bit before you start attacking either side
Kinda a bit unprofessional of Notch to be doing this sort of thing while he is the face of Mojang.
Especially the vague tweets he first did earlier in the day.
You know, even if they did say that stuff, it's entirely (and more than likely) possible that they were saying it jokingly, but it didn't translate that way.
I would've thought that after 1,166 videos that if they were dicks, we would've seen that by now.
EDIT: Also, Notch shouldn't be slagging people off on his public twitter without any form of proof.
Uhhh, and is anyone surprised? You can notice their egos growing more and more if you watched their videos lately; Their personalities also completely changed over time.
The only reason i watch them now is seeing Hannah play games, she's quite entertaining. But the yogscast as a whole was always going to be just like this... Their fanbase is even worse sadly.
And people can bullshit through videos and present themselves any way they like.
They may not actually be dicks, it might have been there nerdy selves being self conscious and uncomfortable so they did all what they knew to do-be jerks.
If they're claiming that they're the reason Minecraft is big then bye.
I hadn't even heard of Yogcast until this.
Well we can all say that after however many yogscasts we have seen we would have seen them be dicks by now, but ive also seen enough of Notch to know that he isn't a dick either. I have no idea, but i truly honestly doubt notch would just do this if it wasn't atleast for some sort of good reason. He loves his fanbase as he posted later on in his twitter. So something must have gone down.
They are basically the RWJ of Minecraft. except less annoying and actually funny.
This is silly. I like Yogscast and I like Notch, and I shall continue doing so.
I'm just saying we should wait to hear both sides of the story before we jump to any conclusions. Notch is just causing drama without ANY form of proof to back up his allegations, before even allowing the Yogscast to formulate a response.
I can believe it, I don't think notch would lie.
There are two sides of the story, first I heard the Yogscast side, from which is apparently supported by TotalBiscuit, and Hannah(Yogscast)
All the stuff claimed in the Yogcast's story seems mentioned everywhere else, as most are siding with Yogcast on this, though I've only just now heard Notch's side of the story, from which point I have heard any of the claims he's been making other than that Reddit post Wii60 mentioned.
I never did like Yogscast because to me it seemed like they were acting as if being british and having a female friend qualified them as ~~~fucking amazing~~~
Time to rub this in my friend's face.
And from what i've gathered from TB and others yogscast wasn't given any sort of "Censor out any bad language" sort of check.
I only ever enjoyed their magicka videos, the rest i didnt really like vv
But really, I cannot even begin to imagine Simon and Lewis doing all of the shit that Notch listed there-- it sound absolutely ridiculous, but then why would Notch lie?
During Cobalt's discussion one of the guys said "shit" multiple times when they died while showing the game. Why isn't notch complaining about that?
And so we have TotalBiscuits view on the matter.
A thing to note is that, seeing as they're all returning from Minecon, they're all (understandable) tired. Being tired makes you do stupid things. Tomorrow should be a better day for all concerned to sort everything out, and I fully expect an alpology - or something along those lines - from both of them.
It's true Notch blurted things out fairly un-professionally over twitter, but let's not forget that he started to explain things in a little more detail after he had Yogscast fans going on at him. In my opinion that probably caused him to get a bit mad - and having twitter there to reply to those confronting him didn't help in the slightest. It doesn't fully justify it, but it helps to explain.
I'm pretty sure that almost everything Notch is complaining about is his 'enhanced' version of Simon and Lewis fucking around like they normally do
Seriously, I remember them doing a podcast or something, and what made it actually funny to listen to was the occasional insult towards a fan or something.
