One of the guys that were with the Yogscast at Minecon described the whole thing, it was retweeted by the Yogscast on Twitter.

I knew the Yogscast were harmless, I'm not even a subscriber, but I'm about to go subscribe to show my support.

I'm not on anyones side, I respect both Notch and Yogscast equally, I just hope they can get past this swiftly. There are alot of kids that watch the Yogscast videos, and to have them stop playing Minecraft would simply break their hearts.

I don't care how famous you are, you don't go around treating others like crap and think you're going to get away with it.

grailly2252d ago

I don't even get why they're famous in the first place, they are just annoying and their videos aren't professional at all, they don't know what they are talking about.

Really? They showcase off a lot of mods, explaining what they do and how they work and then they also provide a narrative driven series. IMO they show a lot of knowledge about Minecraft and what makes it great.

grailly2252d ago

this was my first exposure to them, maybe that's why I don't like them.
watch from 4.30.

they do show a lot of minecraft mods, but there rarely is a video where they know exactly what they are doing. the footage is quickly put together and the commentary says: " you can do this and that, but I didn't find out how to do it"

can somebody explain what the fighting is about between notch and yogcast?

radphil2252d ago (Edited 2252d ago )

Basically yogcast acted egotistical and immature during minecon, and Notch said something about it.

Supposedly they also dropped the f-bomb to a kid that wanted their autograph, and overall Notch wants to distance himself away from them.

yogscast are gonna reveal what happened when lewis, simon and hannah get back. Id treat any details you hear from other people as rumors, just wait for them to explain what happened. But I really do think some shit went down, but really this is the yogscast we are talking about lol did they really expect them to act mature???

radphil2252d ago (Edited 2252d ago )

There kinda is a level of maturity people are expected to have when you're contending with a huge age range, especially when it deals with others.

How you act on the internet does not instantly translate to how you should act around thousands of others in a convention.

PhunnyJesta2252d ago

a) they are brits
b) they are brits

TB sums it quite nicely

Maybe the Yogscast just got a little too carried away?

Notch - definitely socially awkward (don't try denying this - he's a mensa member for crying out loud)
Yogcast - possibly socially awkward? I don't know. It's probably mostly stupidity mixed with misunderstandings. It's not ice anyway, more like vanilla ice. Eeew.

It's in Notch's tweets. Basically Yogscast went around MineCon insulting people and acting like spoiled jerks.

Notch wasn't even this angry when they got sued by Bethesda...

Sephiroth5032252d ago

It is "claimed" they did certain things. Right now we have unconfirmed reports and Notch's brief Tweets to work with. Let's wait for Yogcast response and see where it goes.

@Sephiroth502 What motif could Notch have to lie?

Sephiroth5032252d ago

I agree it's hard to see a motive to lie, but right now we don't know any details - was Notch present when the things he says happened happened, or did someone say it happened to him. Maybe he's overreacting, i.e. there's a lot going around (again unconfirmed) that he's upset with language used and perhaps instructions weren't given on appropriate language or maybe he's 100% right.

But as of this moment we have only one side of the story, a story which he has chosen to break to everyone, and hence it is better for all involved ( I love Minecraft and Yogscast so don't really want to choose) to wait for the other side to the story to see what the issue is.

Mine what? Just kidding but seriously, its a casual game so not much to care about.

Drano2252d ago

Think what you will but this thing is still more newsworthy than any hardcore game texture faceoff.
