After spending months in seclusion, fishingtime returned to the internet after EA UFC 3 was announced to shareholders. He immediately started arguing with several members of the forum, leading to a ban. This is the latest in a series of transgressions from the once respectable fishingtime.
We have just received word that fishingtime has given up and shut down his underground subreddit, r/EASPORTSUFC2. This came after months of controversy that split the community apart. Fishingtime ruled with an iron fist, banning many members and locking threads within hours of their publication.
Meanwhile, with fishingtime’s absence, r/EASportsUFC has become a thriving community, with many helpful threads discussing the game. Hopefully there is still time for the MMA community to heal from the damage caused by fishingtime.
EA SPORTS UFC 2 Forums are back to life after having been shut down for the last several weeks. Dana White, President of the UFC, oversaw the changes.
“We had to do something,” Dana said. “There was a lot of back and forth, he-said, she-said type of stuff. It ends today.”
As part of the changes, Dana White has appointed a new moderator, fishingtime.
Stay tuned to gdfishingtime.wordpress.com as we monitor the situation.
