A Fallout 76 'fan' noticed Bethesda had not secured the Falloutfirst.com domain, and so took it upon themselves to do so.
Lol that's karma for ya
It just works
I read that some people struggle to even pay for the subscription. That's how buggy it is.
Serves Bethesda right.
The hero we need Lmao
But, not the one we deserve.
Oh damn. I want to see Bethesda reaction to this loooool
They'll most likely try to buy the domain from him. I think that he can get a good amount of money out of Bethesda, if he plays his cards right.
Probably issue a cease and desist. He doesnt have to give up the domain, but could potentially fall under trademark laws for the content.
Fair use, friendo. This is a valid parody, and without any ads to generate revenue to boot.
Trademark and copyright aren't the same thing. Receiving income from the venture is immaterial to both trademark and copyright law. All they have to do is say that using the domain in such a way is somehow infringing on their trademark. Trademark law can be exercised outside the rules of fair use. Wasn't saying Bethesda would win a case if it was contested, just that that is how they would have to approach it, and if they do anything, that's what they'd do. Personally I find it rather amusing.
I hope to hell they do not attempt to do anything stupid like that with the next Elder Scrolls game
At this point I wouldn't rush in to buy anything Bethesda. They have lost all credibility and are obviously out of touch with the consumer.
Agreed! The way they are screwing their loyal fans is disgusting. I’m definitely not gonna rush to buy any of their buggy games anymore. It’s crazy how much they’ve damaged their reputation in under a year. Bethesda is literally trying to outdo EA lol
Wow, talk about karma. I absolutely love it. How the f*** did this get past the networking team or whatever team was in charge of this? Like, I am actually shocked something like this slipped past them. Who the hell is Bethesda hiring? Are they hiring people oversea like in china?
This person is a legend who needs duly awarding.
Not all heroes wear capes
The way Bethesda has been treating Fallout, I greatly fear for Elder Scrolls 6.
Lol I'm not for this type of hate but damn --- "Fallout F*** YOU 1st will be available as a one-month waste your money membership, or you can purchase a yearly cash burning pile for a 36% "discount" over the monthly waste your money rate as shown on our website (I will not link this scam). If you cancel your slave membership or it expires, you’ll still be able to access any microtransaction points you received as well as the resources stored in your Scrapbox, if we dont delete them first. Cancellation will be effective at the end of your then-current membership term, or whenever we decide to stop stealing you money. Become a Fallout F*** YOU 1st slave here!"
Lol, I say they had that coming.
This is the most amazing thing I've seen today. What a legend lol.
That is amazing! 16 times the detail in this.
Get fucked, Bethesda. Usually I just ignore industry nonsense but they really need to be lambasted for this. This shit's just beyond the pale.
I wonder, did Bethesda realy think the players were waiting for this bs? They're digging their own grave this way. The fan made website is hilarious imho, so on point too!!!
Awesome, if you follow the posted link, you can also get Rickrolled!!
Is Bethesda doing this on purpose? Blizzard or Bethesda, who wins this gen?
2019 can't end fast enough for Bethesda. How can one company keep fucking up so badly???
