Is this really going down, wouldn't this go against Evony , because of the free speech act, Cos I think Bruce is specking the truth here, so if he looses then the legal system is corrupt as hell, and what is it with these adds, there all soft porn adverts and there every were, I wonder how much Ng4 gets in rev anew, for the cost of flashing cleavage in my face, There is one good side to all the adverts they keep getting better, and how long do we have to wait for full frontal nudity, cos that blond chick up there is getting less and less cloths, even a nipple slip and the server on Ng4 will melt to the ground with the sound of one hundred nerds screaming nooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo oo :)

Update I just saw the new advert and it has a chick in a shower fully nude and the glass is all steamed up hahahah I cant believe it Ng4 will crash soon

That was tough to read. I usually dont complain about grammar and spelling, but when you say specking like your Jar Jar, something must be said.

Evony pants on fire!!

Evony email sent out by Evony widely on the interweb thing:
"5. Evony is in no way a Chinese based company. Evony is a registered corporation in the United States with millions of active players in dozens of countries around the globe."

Evony official Wiki:
"Evony is owned by UMGE (Universal Multiplayer Game Entertainment). Founded by a small group of avid Chinese game developers, UMGE is based in Guangzhou, China and develops online multiplayer games."

Bruce, on many occasions you have driven me nuts with your anti-Sony rhetoric, and general prick-ishness, but I must say, good luck to you.
I think what Evony is trying to do is absolutely wrong.
This is something worth complaining about, I hope this gets some media attention.
Do us gamers proud man.

The Evonypedia link seems to be broken.

It appears that the company is attempting to cover their tracks; try this link.

barom2928d ago

I don't get it! What did the blogger say about the company?

Willio2928d ago

wikipedia is not a source, anyone can edit it.

Afreelunch2928d ago

I'm with you on this one Bruce. Wish I could be on the Jury, you know?

IdleLeeSiuLung2928d ago (Edited 2928d ago )

I'm with you Bruce, 100%!

Although, I must say you are brave to fight them!!! Not so sure I would be willing to risk what I own, but then again I'm sure you researched this enough to know that you have a good fighting chance.

Hopefully this news will spread so Evony will back down.

edit: I'm not condoning this, but clicking ads might cost the company a pretty penny.

1) That was not Wikipedia. It was the official Evony Wiki.
2) They have now deleted the entry saying they are Chinese. This is typical of them trying to change the truth, which is why they are sueing me.
3) The original page still exists on the Google cache. But for insurance I have copied it here: http://bruceongames.blogspo...

They're still trying to sue you, BruceOnGames?

Pandamobile2928d ago

Evony's devs are retarded.

Why don't you try to market the game without half-naked women saying a phrase that sounds like it's from the renaissance.

Elven62928d ago

The phrases fit with the game kinda, the images, not so much.

I played the game when it originally launched, it was a fun time sink but I just didn't have the time for a game like that so I stopped shortly after starting.

mirroredderorrim2928d ago

Dude. They took down the page in the Evonypedia. <[email protected]

Too late, the lawyers have copies of the original!
