    Thoughts on the KOCC videos

    Sigh... I really should know better but it's Sunday, I'm stimulated and I don't particularly tolerate being lied about. This is what we like to call a lie. Generally, people say them to hide things that they've done, or to skew facts so that it favours the argument they're trying to make. I get the feeling that Phil doesn't actually remember the opinion of his fans at that time and just made this sentence up to strengthen his argument. Therefore, this falls into the latter category. Between 2011 and 2014, Phil, John Rambo, DSPGaming, these forums, were my life outside of my life. It still is in some ways, but to a much lesser degree and for much different reasons. This is just to make the point that I remember this quite clearly. In February 2013 TIHYDP MGS2 was posted by EvilAJ, and it instantly grew in popularity. It got shared everywhere as a great video and it eventually wound up here, on the forums. This was pre-2014, before the forums descended into the misuse, splintering and all-around bizarre factioning of the community. People on the site, in general, were fans of the content that DSP produced, as well as his friends at the time John Rambo, Howard, etc. This was the time when some of the best stuff was still popular, with the co-op playthroughs, convention vlogs and Kinect gameplay being my personal highlights. There was an entire thread dedicated to discussion of it. The consensus was: "This is great, this is really funny, Phil should see about getting the guy to let him upload it to DSPGaming." myself included. No one was pissed. No one was appalled. No one was insulted. Feel free to deny this all you want but this is what happened, I was one of those 'fans', and, unlike you, I have no reason to lie. So let me correct that sentence for you: In fact; most people who were actual fans of mine really enjoyed the video, but I was insulted, appalled, and pissed that TIHYDP even existed. And the funny thing is that you just shut down all discussion of it. You were so appalled that TIHYDP was a thing that you stuck your fingers in your ears, singing "La la la", using moderation to silence anyone trying to talk about it and tried to pretend like it didn't exist. After that first time, you never even gave yourself a chance to learn what your fans thought of those videos. After that first time, in your opinion those videos were a personal attack, they were out to hurt you, and anyone who spoke positively about them wanted to hurt you. There's this thing recently, that seems to keep eluding you. You keep seeming to learn your lesson and then make exactly the same mistake over again. The people who watch your content are not responsible for the decisions that you make nor are they responsible for the successes and/or failures of your business. You are. So, rather than try to throw your fans under the bus for your past actions, stand up and take full responsibility for the fact that you let your insecurities get the better of you. That your insecurities and the way you reacted are the sole reason why This Is How You Don't Play is so synonymous with the name DarksydePhil.

  2. This can be explained pretty easily: You're not listening. I never said I'm about to lose my house, and that the bill collectors are at the door. I said I'm at the point that, yeah, I'm going to be having a tough time paying my bills, and if things KEEP GOING ON A DECLINE line this, I won't be able to do YouTube full-time anymore. I'll HAVE to dedicate a significant amount of time finding a job outside of YouTube, which might or might not even help the situation (it would certainly HURT IT in the short-term as there's no way any job would pay me what I currently make from YouTube revenue as a starting salary, being out of the job market for 6 years now). When I'm asking for Patreon pledges, Twitch subs or cheers, I'm saying this: IF YOU WANT ME TO KEEP DOING THIS AS A FULL TIME JOB, and KEEP providing you with the same ongoing, constant volume of content I have for years, then you have to contribute, because just the YouTube revenue isn't cutting it anymore. I'm not saying "my house is about to be repossessed, I can't afford a cup of ramen noodles and I'm completely destitute." As I've said, REPEATEDLY, the world is not a "Black and white" thing. You're not ONLY either filthy rich, or dirt poor. I'm not asking a person living in a cardboard box on the street for a Patreon pledge, and it's up to THE INDIVIDUAL to decide if they can actually afford to pledge to someone like myself. You cannot hold me responsible if someone does do something irresponsibly. A dollar from a person who doesn't make a lot of money probably is worth more than to someone who does, but it's still just a dollar and only goes so far. Those dollars ADD UP to much more as Patron pledges and if they allow me to continue to put out the FREE CONTENT I've put out nonstop since 2008? Perhaps that dollar is better well spent than going towards something else, for someone who is a viewer who wants that free content to continue uninterrupted - and for whom pledging that dollar isn't going to cause desperate self-harm. Again, I NEVER ASKED ANYONE TO PLEDGE who could not afford it, and you should stop holding me accountable for those that might. This isn't rocket science unless you don't understand the basic principles of economics, and just want to try and find a way to guilt trip ANYONE who takes in crowdfunding/pledges/donations to keep a business operating. Might as well ask all of Patreon and Twitch to shut down then, because that's pretty much what they're entirely used for.

  3. Because they're shitheads. There's really no other reason, they get a kick out of bringing me down in any way possible. They'll claim it's because "the playthrough is more entertaining when he doesn't get help," but what they really mean is "we love to see Phil fail at games, so we can steal his videos illegally and make TIHYDP montages of them to make him look bad and take away his livelihood." So they'll hide that desire behind the guise of "legit criticism" when their real intentions are hardly anything but looking to be constructive. I was sick the entire months of December/January and toughed through the cold to play Dark Souls; decided as a courtesy to turn off the webcam when it was necessary to blow my nose; in response those same "Critics" decided to completely make up, then rotate as fact, that I was "looking in online guides" during those few minute breaks. So of course, my entire Redemption run through Dark Souls is "illegitimate" to them because I was "using guides" the entire time. Same thing goes for stream chat: if I even glance at the chat while live streaming w/a webcam, those same people say "HE'S LOOKING AT CHAT FOR HELP!" constantly. If they were to be believed, I'd never had killed a single enemy in any Souls game by myself or without handholding. Keep in mind, monitoring stream chat is something NECESSARY to actually stream properly and know if the stream is working, if there are issues, if people are even liking what you're streaming. It's completely illogical reasoning, but they use their "mob mentality" among the stupidest people on the internet to pass it as fact, and a reason why nobody should watch my content. But in short: they're shitheads.

    Sorry but I dont take phil's review seriously tbh. I only watched them for fun. When i really need to watch a game review i go to other channels. Btw, if ur that serious on 60fps u would know better to get the game on PC, or if u arent in the PC masterrace yet u should ve joined them long ago.

    I don't even know what people are talking about here - DragonSlayerVlogs didn't follow up with me at all about anything. I haven't heard a single thing from him since the video went live, so anything going on with Twitter or podcasts or the like, I have no idea what's been said. I also never said anything about the definitive reason he submitted the video (i.e. low views on his channel was just a hypothesis, and I don't even remember saying that was the reason bc he never told me that). In regards to copyright, the issue was that I was afraid someone would try to false strike the video if he left it live on his channel. He said he'd make it private for a week or so, so that people could see it on KOGaming and NOT submit false claims against it. Any other discussion outside of that, I was never a part of. I'm e-mailing the guy now to find out WTF is really going on.

    Thoughts on the KOCC videos

    Fred is a piece of shit leech. The reason he made the video with EXACTLY the same tags and title as the first official TIHYDP video is to try and skew YouTube search results. I guarantee he'll continue to keep putting up videos with the same titling/tags as the first official TIHYDP, so that when people search for it, his stuff comes up too. It's the ultimate loser tactic: copy EVERYTHING to try and bite some attention from someone else, due to an innately flawed YouTube "related vids" system, because nobody would watch his dumb shit otherwise. This is also the primary reason why Sons of Kojima show up as a "related" channel to all of my channels on YouTube, and why when you search for my vids, the detractor vids come up too. The only reason anyone even FINDS their videos is because of me, and there's no way to "fix" it because YouTube is a piece of shit website, run by dumbfuck "Ivy League" morons who don't even understand how their own stuff can be easily abused by sociopaths for personal gain. The reason Dragonslayer regrets being the first official TIHYDP is because he's now taken the huge brunt of negativity from scumsuckers who are genuine sociopaths and WANT to actually hurt me IRL; they're angry that he submitted his video and wanted to be part of something positive/productive around me and my channels. They basically haven't let up and he probably will be getting tons of negativity for ages now because of these mentally ill fucks. And that's not right, but he saw the shit the other people took earlier in the week just for the montages, so he knew what he was getting into. And there isn't really any monetary compensation to be had - the video has almost 10k views now, which amounts to probably $5-20 in ad revenue; so even if I split it down the middle, he put far more time/effort into the video than what I can pay him for it. For years people love to make excuses: Phil's business is failing because he doesn't listen and doesn't change! Or because he talks down to his fans and lies/steals from them! He's all about the money! WRONG! It's because no matter what I do to try and improve, there are the same group of brain-sick fucks following me about, disparaging anyone who gets positive around me or my content. Nothing is ever good enough, and every single little flaw is spun into a hugely over-dramatic and slanderous scandal. They harass people on Twitter, they spam my YouTUbe comments with filth to get into TIHYDP vids, they downvote everything. When you ask them why, they spew out the same regurgitated garbage that everyone in their cult says: all things that can easily be disproved with 5 minutes of research, but which SO MANY OF THEM have made videos about, it's now considered TRUTH by a group mentality. And people like Fred, who consciously seek to "make fun of" everything I do, are a major part of the root of the problem. He's a piece of shit, and considering his track record, he probably always will be. The only reason he's ever had meaning in his life is because of me, and he can't detach now, for fear he'll just be lost in obscurity again. So prepare for a LONG ride from these fucks, because without me, they'll never be anything.

    Disgusting mod behavior today during Stream

    If you want to be in more control of what chat talks about, maybe you should try interacting with it: respond to questions or ask questions yourself. Enforcing arbitrary rules on what they are allowed to talk about will only create an uncomfortable atmosphere for everyone.

    But you yourself have said this exact thing about people... Two Best Friends Also, one last thing. Responses like this where you hurl insults at people calling them empty headed morons are exactly why so many people don't like you. To put it frankly, you come off as a dick a lot of times. You could really take a page from the other people I watch in terms of how to respond to people saying things you don't like. It's honestly as simple as just calming down before you respond.

    In the long term...

    There are a lot of things to consider, and it looks like you're already looking at some options I had the intent to suggest. Unfortunately there are also some choices that would have been better to make years ago, like taking one of the cheaper houses you looked at instead of caring so much about older cabinets or another, cheaper house being part of the view, but you can't change the past. Cheaper car: Good, you're already looking at this. It's not a bad idea to look for newer used cars. If you must get a new one, look at Ford Fiesta, Chevy Spark. They're ugly, shitty, hipster-tier cars, but they're dirt cheap and by the sound of things you aren't in a position to be picky about the looks of a car. You can sell things on Amazon more safely than on ebay, try putting the collectables up there. If your housing community has yard sales or something, I wouldn't expect the collectables to sell well but you could put out things like those old desk chairs and dressers. If you aren't already, buy store brand food and supplies instead of name brand.You get what you pay for, but when it's a matter of not being able to pay bills two months down the line because January earnings tanked, the money saved is going to satisfy much better than the bigger name food tasting better. Same with coffee - it would be an additional small investment, but getting a standard traditional coffee maker, reusable basket, and $8/container of coffee instead of overpriced k-cups for keurig machines is going to save a lot of money. Bring back Cooking with the King. You've mentioned running out of recipe knowledge of your own, but you could most certainly make plenty of videos from Leanna cooking meals. If older episodes are any indication, these are very easy videos to make and they do get views. You've already brushed off "work more/longer hours", but reconsider. I believe I've seen an older post where you mention you start doing work around noon or so, leaving many morning hours unused. "People already complain about the volume of videos posted" doesn't matter, in fact complaints in general shouldn't matter unless weighed against others appropriately considering people will complain even if you like and praise a game. It doesn't necessarily have to be gaming videos made with those extra hours in the morning - that politics channel idea, or bringing back things like "Phil reacts", greenscreen content, a podcast, or something similar to Smark Guys even if it would be a solo effort this time around, all on the vlog channel. Even using that as extra time for working on montages and reviews for KOGAMING would be time well spent. The more videos, the more views and potential views, the more money, the better. Any physical games or game consoles you don't use anymore, trade in at gamestop or sell online. They're probably worth a pittance at gamestop so the online option is probably better, but it's better than nothing. Consider viewing (instead of renting new things) your vast movie collection or selling off ones you have no real use for. See if there's a better job Leanna can get. If her current one is part time with that kind of wild, inconsistent schedule, it sounds terrible both for pay and for simply having to deal with.

  13. People that juggle jobs arent a myth: they're real people lol. They exist, and juggling 2 jobs doesn't mean that your entire life is consumed by your work. Saying that they don't have time to follow DSP and that they wouldn't have a stance on this topic is a very close-minded statement.

  14. That is the general mentality of the group of people who watch TIHYDP videos and participate in these kinds of "groups," sadly. Unlike yourself, they GENUINELY want to hurt me, because they're insane. The same video they liked on your channel, they now HATE because it's on mine. It's not logical human thinking.

    Is there something wrong with DSP's comment section?

    So...you're a moron, then? I rarely get time to even look at the comments anymore - maybe 1-2 times a week, tops. When I do, if I see massively offensive stuff (like today, I saw someone tell me to kill myself on a Nioh vid), I'll remove it. And that's it. You can shove your conspiracy theories up your ass.

    Phils For Honor/playthrough and review.

    I got For Honor on the Xbox One. And I have had almost no performance issues. As a matter of fact I only had frame drops when someone left a match with the connection readjusting. I too disagree with Phil.. But not on most of his points.. But the importance of those points. 30fps in my experience was fine. 60 would have been great, but 30 is not a deal breaker. And with my connection not having issues I know that when I died it was my fault and not due to lag or frame drops. Not to mention For Honor is a slow methodical game.. Which relies less on having quick reaction times like other games. This is why I believe 30 works fine. Many other game's are 30 with thier online multiplayer that are action and reaction. The game is also not pay 2 win as far as I can tell (i've played about 20 hours)... All pieces of gear have a stat cost.. As in one stat goes up but another goes down, you cannot strong arm your way to victory. A skilled player with no gear will always beat a player thinking thier gear will win them a fight. I also disagree with the revenge system being a problem. It's not from my experience. It hardly can occur in 1v1 fights, and is designed to help decent players survive from being ganked by 2 to 4 other players. You can't really take advantage of revenge if you are a bad player as a skilled player can easily block and avoid revenge attacks. Just because revenge has failed in other games does not make it fail in this one.. Especially with the uniqueness of the games structure and mechanics. I feel this is the exception. So looking at Phil's review I don't believe those points are heavy enough to deter the game's quality as strongly as he suggests. The flaws the game has from my experience are not huge problems. The combat system is unique and original. And with that, very enjoyable. The amount of depth is great. And none of the flaws he mentioned has soiled my experience with For Honor.

  21. Fuck this discussion about it being fair use or not. It is totally irrelevant. No one have yet to prove that it is or isn't. It falls under the category of Tolerated use. Which is in essence exactly the same. As long as the copyright holder for some reason don't enforce their claims on copyright, how fair it is or is not doesn't matter. Because everyone can use it as they please with no consequences.

    Thoughts on the KOCC videos

    A pointless statement. To continue to do nothing rather than actually try something, regardless of the timing, is fruitless. At least something is being attempted here, as I wasn't a clairvoyant or time traveler who could have foreseen what would happen with TIHYDP and its effect on my business/popularity overall back then, when it started in 2013. In fact, nobody did; most people who were actual fans of mine were insulted, appalled and pissed that TIHYDP even existed. Being that I was powerless to stop it due to YouTube's complete lack of respect for copyright law enforcement, the only other real, logical alternatives that I had were to 1. denounce them or 2. ignore them. I started with 1, moved on to 2, and neither helped. Another pointless statement. The hundreds of dislikes are from morons who are PISSED that videos are getting attention that aren't hyper-negative. Despite these videos clearly NOT being titled "This Is How You Don't Play," because they aren't those videos, the same dumbfucks who watch them are spamming dislikes on THESE videos and leaving vast majority of comments such as: "This isn't a proper TIHYDP" "I'll stick to TIHYDP" "Phil has STOLEN the idea of TIHYDP" ...and the like, among tons of insults, swears and things that you'd normally hear on the schoolyard. The comments are utterly fucking pointless, from an utterly stupid, uneducated group of morons who don't understand that THESE ARE NOT TIHYDP VIDEOS! Why on earth would those insanely stupid comments be left there? When someone writes incredibly puerile, perverse, stupid nonsense on the walls of a business or a public restroom, you clean the walls, no? You don't leave the shitstains smeared all over the place. EDIT: Important to note, I've already said publicly and repeatedly that the next fan-submitted montage WILL be a proper TIHYDP, with insults and the like. More akin to a seriously negative roast of a comedian/celeb etc. than just fun stuff in a video. And I approved it!

    So whats the difference between "one-sided fight where he can kill you at any moment" and "stunlocks for an instant kill" or "can it do an incredibly fast/cheap instant-kill move at any time" exactly? It all kills you regardless and all need good timing to avoid, ur stunlock situation is just bcos ur out of stamina and is directly in front of the boss that continuously do damage while moving forward. Ima try describe a good boss fight according to what i heard, saw and read from you ok phil? So gimmick-free should be -large plain field (or unlimited if possible) with no obstacles or holes -bosses have no debuff moves, their hits will not stagger or stun -bosses attacks have no fast moves, no instant kills (or no hard hitting moves) -bosses have small health pools and can be killed fairly quickly -no set ups, no preparations and no item management (ie usage of extra items and skills will not improve the fights) -no PUZZLES -bosses movement/fight mechanics work exactly like the player (also from dark souls series) -bosses have no random moves (all moves are patterned) and not too much moves available to them -have checkpoints if boss have multiple phases -no offscreen attacks (ie all attacks must come from the front of the camera angle or within the screen) thats just from the top of my head. Now imagine all boss fights in games are like that.

This includes people in these countries that practice any type of religion. -His ban is TEMPORARY and gives us time to develop a better vetting process for immigration.

  27. Actually, no, that's not what happened at all. Fans came to ME on this, I thought it was a good idea, and I realized that if I made it into something official I'd probably get far more people interested. I'm not expecting to get anyone with already existing HUGE FOLLOWINGS submitting anything, and that's fine. The bottom line is, if you can't benefit from the exposure, then why would you want to be part of the program anyway? As for financial compensation, please tell me you're joking. The average video on my KOGaming channel only gets 5-10k views, which ad-revenue wise won't ever top $5-15 each. If you think putting in the work of a highly edited montage is going to be profitable because it's on KOGaming, you're wrong. The idea here is to get stuff EXPOSED to those 5-10k people who watch. If your average channel video views are far above that 5-10k, then there's zero incentive or reason to ever put your work on KOGaming. This program is meant to give creative people exposure who otherwise can't get it, not to "pay people for making montages." The fact is, legally I own 100% rights to EVERY SINGLE TIHYDP VIDEO EVER MADE, and if I sued for it, I would own all of those videos and could put ads all over them. As in, I could be making thousands of dollars on the stolen footage used for TIHYDP without permission. However, I don't have the time nor the money to take every kid to court who makes a video without my permission. Therefore, the KOGaming Community submissions program is a way for me to benefit from those who actually OBTAIN PERMISSION to use my work to make something creative, and meanwhile I give them exposure so it can be shared with others. If you're looking to make money with illegally stolen videos from DSPGaming, you're barking up the wrong tree, bub. There's a reason why you can't make a montage like "This is How You DON'T Make a TV Show: The Walking Dead" on YouTube; it's called copyright infringement. Just because I don't have the money or legal backing of AMC, doesn't mean I don't own the rights to every single derogatory video that's ever been created about me, that contains my gameplay. The sooner you awaken to this reality of things, the better. None of your "circular logic" arguments based on phantom evidence of "transformative works" mean a hill of beans when it comes to actual legal counsel. If you'd like some exposure, great! Let's talk about a montage for KOGaming. If you're looking to line your pockets because you stole my videos and made a montage? Hit the road, jack.

  28. He can't but I can. He doesn't watch football. If last night's game didn't make you at least respect the game, then nothing will. It was 28 - 3 for good solid 3 quarters. There were plenty of touchdowns, plenty of amazing catches, If you dont like Tom Brady you got what you wanted for 45 minutes, if you like Tom Brady you got what you wanted for the last 15, greatest comeback in SuperBowl History and to top it all off the commissioner Rodger Godell gets booed for a solid straight 45 seconds before he gives up and disappears into the shadows. This was far from boring, but people like Dark, Phil, and people from the FGC think playing video games or watching video games on a computer monitor is better than socializing, going out to Super Bowl parties, and watching Super Bowl history being made. Go kick rocks, I'm fine with you not enjoying football, but admit that's YOUR problem and not the game or other people enjoying it. One thing that a absolutely giggled at was Phil said something along the lines of "I like real games where it's all about the defense and nobody really scores", NO YOU DON'T. If you cant enjoy the touchdowns and the catches that were made last night what makes me think you're that dialed in when a game is completely made up of just 3 and outs and field goal attempts. The KC and Steeler game was exactly that and Phil didn't say a word about it. Give me a break, you people just hate when a mass a people can enjoy something you loathe. I stayed at my house alone with a couple of beers , Twitter, text message capabilites, a couple Phone Calls from friends and family here and there, in front of a television set watching the game having to work the next morning and probably had way more fun than Dark, Phil, or FGC players had playing vidya gaemz for the 383rd day in a row.

  31. KG is right, there are things Phil has done that have added to his financial situation but there's also things people will point to that aren't really a concern that some will be pointlessly chastise him for like having a meal out like Phil should be eating cup noodles for the duration because he's not a millionaire. That is stupid as even people in financial trouble need a night out or a meal out to recharge their batteries or whatever. The only gripe I'd have is if he expected other people to take up the slack while not addressing the major issues, from what I can tell this isn't the case as the fact he's trying to sell the condo and the car lease shows he's working to lower his monthly expenditure

  32. Oh for fuck's sake, the other thread got closed before I could actually post this, so I'm going to post it here. This was supposed to be posted in the "In the long term" thread but it got closed because reasons...sorry if it doesn't make as much sense here. I know you think you're living a lean life right now Phil, but I don't think a lot of people see it that way. Like, the fact that you say you maybe eat out 1-2 times a week TOPS (as if that's almost poverty level) really rubs people the wrong way. It does to me anyway. I don't know about anyone else posting here, but I've gone through times in my life where I don't think I ate out once in over 6 months or more. That's just one thing that you're talking about here as far as "hardships" go. I mean, you kind of have to expect this type of scrutiny from people when you keep coming out with these vids saying how dire your financial situation is. I've been there several times before because of how shit life can get sometimes. You know that huge wall of blue-rays and dvd's you have? That shit would be ALL sold before I started to ask other people to help me out. Plus this stuff about "I'm already overworked"....what are you talking about? You don't even have to leave your home to work, and the work you do is what many people do as fun leisure time that they feel blessed to even have in the first place. I think you're "overstressed" but you are absolutely not "overworked". I know you have to upload stuff to youtube and do some editing on your computer sometimes but...a lot of the people you're asking for help from are probably much worse off. Judging by some of the responses in this thread, that certainly seems to be the case. This isn't just me taking shots here. I honestly think that you have a bit of a disconnect between what you think is "dire straits" and what is actually "dire straits". I don't know anyone who would be asking for financial help while having all that you have. I think you need to make a HUGE adjustment to your standard of living if you want to continue At any rate, I hope you end up working it all out. No matter how wrong I might think people are, I don't like to see anyone have to lose everything before they learn their lesson the hard way.

    In the long term...

    Why would you only qualify for entry level positions? You have office work experience (you also stated you received accommodations for your quality of work) and a four year degree at your disposal. Yes, Jobs that pay anything substantial are hard to come by in today's economy, but you could at least submit your resume to aggregate websites like Monster, Indeed, or careerbuilder to get your resume out there and see if you get bites. You also should also look into state and county jobs, as the health benefits alone would greatly reduce your monthly health care costs. It wouldn't hurt to take 15-30 minutes a day out of your time to to submit job applications. Also, if Leanna is only working part time, she needs to transition to full time. No offense to her, but one to two sales of wax tart melts and soap a day is a business that does very little to contribute to your monthly expenses. If soap is a real passion of hers, she needs to expand her product line and distribution (stop selling exclusively on etsy.com) to generate more sales.

  34. Not really, it just means I have a different opinion. It's a fear tactic LGBT likes to use to stop people from talking. So many millennials are brainwashed these days into thinking it's all about "Love" or "human rights" and not about LGBT communities promoting their twisted ideology to influence youths into mutilating their bodies or entering into relationships that defy what we are as a specifies. How do two men have a child? Generations of people will never be born. Little kids will make life altering decisions before they are old enough to understand the gravity of that decision. It's medieval BS that has been stomped out for centuries, but flourishes in today's society because of weak principles. They don't respect their bodies so they try to become something they aren't. It's sick. Here in the USA many states voted to not legalize gay marriage, so the LGBT communities stepped over democracy and got it legalized through the supreme court. Now it's just created chaos throughout the country as everyone struggles with lawsuits and frivolous demands for things like special bathrooms.

  38. I've just been on Youtube looking at some of these TIHYDP videos and I discovered a surprising fact, most of the people who make them have awful laughable low number view counts on videos that aren't DSP related so it has to be said that DSP made those guys more popular not the other way round. Food for thought?

  39. My god, chief butta: A work visa is a work visa. They can be issued under many different programs and circumstances. You are just talking about one of them. I hate people having read a book about a subject and think they know it all. In any case if you have had a work visa for many years you would probably have no problem getting it renewed. Unless you have done something criminal, this visas are usually easy renewable. It is at least like that in every country i know of. Your knowledge of this subject is really build on abysmal ignorance. If you think your jungle curse and insults bothers me you are wrong.

  42. Yes I used to, but I don't now. I wasn't even asociated with that group before.I don't ramble about Phil in my Twitter and YT channel. The idea of gathering men just to ramble about Phil for hours is just...really weird and pathetic. Bless their souls, I hope they find something better to do. About the subs. I received 14 and that's fine by me. I'm really not obsessed with subs and I don't upload to my channel like I used to be. "B-b-but you're doing it for FREE!" yes. Just like drawing for people for free. I don't charge money for requests. I don't know why you have a problem with that.

    Thoughts on the KOCC videos

    Hey everybody, it's your boy BeAwesomeOne. I will just be here for a little bit since I am going to be banned in 2 minutes, but I wanted to point out that it's hilarious how Phil claims that he doesn't mind having videos of him being roasted, but when Fred made his KOCC Parody video (that can be classified as roast) you basically flipped out. Talk about double standards here, boy. As for DragonSlayerVlogs... I'm pretty sure those "sociopaths" actually like him despite putting out below average TIHYDP video. What you don't seem to understand is why people enjoy those videos, but not yours. It's not because it doesn't make you look bad and show private stuff. No, it's because it show parts where you are being good at the games and it doesn't highlight your big hissy fits and your acts of stupidity, which is what made original TIHYDP videos popular in the first place. I'm also going to point out that SoK is having bigger amount of viewers on streams comparing to your stream DESPITE not talking about you. In other words, they don't need to reference you in order to get views. But I do find it funny that their Endure videos of your January "begging" video and your first KUCC video got more views than the original videos. Okay, but now onto the main point on why I am writing on this deserted place. I just want to you to listed to me carefully. YOU ARE A NARCISSIST That's not an insult, that's a fact. You seriously need to check yourself out since that I wlll ruin your life (like it wasn't ruined in the first place). I'm saying this just for your own good, Phillip. P.S. When are you coming to UK? I have tea and some crumpets that you can consume with me.

    Thoughts on the KOCC videos

    There have been two common trains of thought on the TIHYDP video: 1. It had too many memes (so it was cringey): Fair criticism, that can be used to improve in the future. 2. It wasn't HARSH enough, in particular because it didn't highlight YouTube comments. The video called me a "fucking cunt," had awful pics/insults to my girlfriend in it, and even completely fabricated the act that I'd somehow INTENTIONALLY made a video short to make more ad revenue. "Not harsh enough" in this case means "didn't completely destroy Phil's character and make him out to be the devil through intentional slander." And that's the difference between laughing WITH someone (like a roast) or laughing AT them (to purposely misrepresent and destroy their character). Now I'm not against more harsh stuff it it's relating to the game, or the like - but the problem is, when TIHYDP went viral, it created a group of brainless, drooling idiots who just spam nonsensical, intentionally ridiculous and insulting comments on my playthroughs in the hopes of GETTING INTO THE TIHYDP VIDEO; i.e. it created a huge group of moronic attention-whores that turned my YT comments section into a septic system of toxic bullshit. If you actually think off-topic, slanderous insults are "funny," you are a fucking moron. If you think insulting my family and girlfriend in a gameplay video that has NOTHING to do with them, you are a fucking moron. If you've EVER posted up a comment on a playthrough of mine in the hopes of getting into a TIHYDP video? You're an attention-seeking, worthless, brainless, idiotic moron who can be viewed as nothing more than pathetic by anyone else with a brain. NOW, all of that being said: if anyone actually has a constructive criticism of how to improve the video, fair enough. But "you didn't totally make Phil look like the anti-Christ, so people MAY still want to see his videos, so this TIHYDP sucks!" is not a valid criticism. It shows the insane stupidity, selfishness, and immorality of the common TIHYDP viewer, and just how fucking moronic those people are.

    Thoughts on the KOCC videos

    Let's just forget about TIHYDP and all the antics around phil for a second. The KOCC is primarily a way for phil to get more content out of himself that is edited. And to make KO gaming better, with more content created for it than he can master himself. It is a way for talented people in the community to be a part of, and to have a chance to contribute to something positive. I think the only real issue is that it is a little late. That is should have been done at a earlier point in time. But it is not too late. Hell give me one good reason why people shouldn't be able to make fan videos, and get them promoted by phil. this is no different than fan art in my opinion. It's not like any concept have been stolen here. It's a totally voluntary thing people choose to do. With very clear premises. I think it is only right to judge this creations on if they are good or not. In what they are trying to do. Not on some unwritten standards made about TIHYDP. It is not trying to be the same.
