Tensions have reached an all-time high regarding fishingtime‘s recent ban from Operation Sports. Cries of censorship have escalated all the way to the White House, forcing United States President Donald Trump to fly directly to St. Charles, Missouri, where fishingtime resides. Hours before the President was expected to call for the restoration of fishingtime’s Twitter account, protesters gathered outside of the St. Charles Convention Center.
Jeramie Glassjaw, of St. Peters, said he came to decry Operation Sports’s behavior and harsh rhetoric, which protesters outside the convention center say has sparked a wave of hostility against EA UFC 3, Ultimate Team, and microtransactions.
“The microtransaction plan is criminal,” Glassjaw said. “Encouraging children to gamble is yet another example of detestable game design practices on behalf of EA.”
But the dominant message on St. Charles streets was that Operation Sports censorship has been bad for the nation, particularly members of the MMA gaming community. Trump claimed that the Bill of Rights, particularly the First Amendment, applies to all United States citizens, including fishingtime.
“With Trump as your President, we are going to be celebrating Merry Christmas again, and it’s going to be done with a big, beautiful tax cut,” said the President.
For the second time in 2017, Operation Sports has decided to ban fishingtime due to yet another incident of harassment. The list of fishingtime’s victims continues to grow. Perhaps inspired by the sexual harassment allegations against Harvey Weinstein, Kevin Spacey, and Matt Lauer, several gamers publicly spoke out against fishingtime’s untoward behavior. As always, we at gdfishingtime will continue to report on the latest developments.
We encourage any other victims to come forward. We will not back down against these heinous crimes.
We at gdfishingtime have been alerted to new harrassment charges against fishingtime. The target of these attacks is none other than SwedishTouch76, a long time MMA video gaming practitioner. Unfortunately despite repeated attempts to stop fishingtime, his campaign of hate continues. Despite this constant bullying SwedishTouch76 stood his ground, forcing mods to once again threaten fishingtime with a site-wide ban.
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.
