  1. Well, it's time for me to give it a go. I have a lot to say, and I'm going to be very specific, so bare with me, Phil. On the forums previous to this one, you mentioned I was coming from a closed minded perspective with my satire, among other things, but I won't get off the point. I have watched your vlog channel and pieces of the gaming channel, so know that my perspective does not come from just "hater videos", but your direct content. Anyway, I believe I can shed light on things. In a podcast, you mentioned the vlogging channel was doing better than the gaming channel. You equated that

  2. I am sorry but this entire tirade came off as a whiny entitled mess. He demonstrated his complete lack of understanding of DDOS attacks with the "hacks" comment, as well as how development works. What if they had to delay a dlc due to a bug or issue during development of the content? All I saw was a self-professed business man who is unable to be flexible and creative in a moment where things did not go his way. He also states how paying for Playstation network gets you nothing in return (if you ignore the 3-5 free games per month). He then had to express himself with his ultimate trademark o

  3. https://my.charitywater.org/sons-of-kojima I am proud to announce that the Sons of Kojima have partnered with Charity:Water to help raise $5,000 in order to provide clean drinking water to developing countries. Charity:Water is a highly rated organization due to their transparency and efficiency with donations. They have very little overhead and administrative costs. All donations go straight to Charity:Water through their site, there is no middleman. They accept credit card and Paypal. You do not have to be in the Sons of Kojima nor does donating mean you endorse or support us. We just see an

  4. On the background of the 70th anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz-Birkenau (Jan 27, 1945), I want to write about something that bothers me since Phil aired it. The infamous six, seven minutes Phil went on in the Dead Space 2 demo by speaking in German accent and while killing necromorphs he made "jokes" about jews in space and how they have to be exterminated. He called himself Isaac Himmler. And he went on with that, it was so disgusting and painful to watch. I do not care if this was connected to blip.tv 's decision not to have Phil in their program nor the rumors about him having h

  5. Y'know what? I'm just gonna be blunt here. The best advice I could possibly give to Phil? Get over yourself. No, that is not an insult. That's some healthy advice in response to you and your attitude. The quality of the content you put out is nowhere near as good as you make it out to be. You talk about your raw gameplay as if it's supposed to be the major draw of your channel, yet there are plenty of other channels that do raw gameplay, without commentary as well (sometimes with edits where necessary), like RajmanGamingHD and HassanAlHajry for example, who, despite having far fewer videos tha

  6. ​Wow. That's impressive, it's like you've told yourself all of that shit so much you now believe it. Let me spell it out for everyone: We saw the (what we thought) unjust moderation of users and posts and wanted to actWe went public with our disagreements with PhilHe offered us the following (NOTE: nothing about 'mods being better mods' or any of that shit he's shovelled in the past): http://prntscr.com/653lmmI (and the other forum team) replied with the following (NOTE: still nothing about 'being better mods'): http://prntscr.com/653m9dHe agreed to those termsHe broke them less than a month

  8. A community has been built around hating Phil back when he had a lot of work to do on his image, which he fully admits he needed to improve upon. Now that he has taken constructive criticism to heart, people have to grasp at every straw they possibly can to keep the community going. Any dark joke he makes, every slightly negative thing he ever says, every cent he makes is monitored and scrutinized by a horde of people with little to no experience in life so they can go back to the circle and congratulate each other for fueling the fires that keep their community going. I sat through the Son

  9. The difference here is that I'm not trying to be offensive and use the term as a blanket insult at all (like calling someone a "Retard" would be, for example). It's quite literally how you would describe the actions of a group of people that do horrible things to me on a regular basis. -DDOsing me -DOXXing me -Prank calling my home at all hours of the day -Ordering food and having it sent to my home -Monitoring ALL forms of my social media including forum posts, tweets, posts ON OTHER WEBSITES outside of my own to keep tabs on my activities and stalk me at all hours -Stealing my own copyrighte

  10. See, this is what I'm talking about with the oversharing. You want to make more money and to do so you have to work more hours? That's pretty standard business, not an illness or affliction. You have to understand that no matter what sob stories you fire at us, you're still working fewer hours and making more money than the majority of us here. So if you're going to say that you're tired, or overowrked, or whatever, just think about how it's going to be received. It snowed 3 feet this week in my town, but I still have to go to work. Everybody needs time off, but from a purely consumerist

  11. Here's what I'd really like from the patreon campaign: transparency. You've been shaping the past to fit your narrative for the past few weeks and it's getting to be gross. Views did not decrease unexpectedly due to your move over the summer; they've been in a sharp decline for a couple of years now due to your inability to adapt to youtube trends and your bad attitude. Stop telling people otherwise. Furthermore, you've spent nearly an entire year vlogging about all your move to an overly expensive home, describing all the expensive furnishings that you crammed into said home, and buying cra

  12. I've been taking quite a bit of time to figure out how to best word my response and I would very much appreciate it if you would read all the way through before you pass judgement. I'm not the greatest at organizing my thoughts, so if you are confused about something I said, I do not mind clarifying at all. I think a good comparison to who you would want to watch on YouTube would be trying to pick out what game to play. Now I'm not sure about most of the people here, but I can't really afford to pay for a lot of the newest games that come out, I try to pick up as many as I can, but someti

  13. I'm probably going to get a lot of hate for this, but fuck it. Seeing all these "discussion" threads go to hell is reminding me why I bailed out of my old forum account. I understand that most of you guys want to vent your criticism of Phil, most of which he fully deserves, and this is the most direct way to do it, but I rarely see it done to any success. Yes, Phil is partially, if not mostly responsible for this, but I can't stand by and accept this theory that it's only his fault, because that's honestly not what I'm seeing. I'm going to give you guys my honest advice here. Take it as you wi

  14. ​Where do you get this from? I'm one of the old mods and I'm on the Phil's ED page as a "pedophile". That's hardly a show of support. We left because we didn't like how Phil enforced rules that weren't written, ostensibly making up rules to get rid of the people he didn't like and/or said negative things about him. What happened afterwards was a massive clusterfuck and mostly my fault, but the rest of the modding staff did an insane job keeping the old forums clean of spam, bullshit and blatant hatred (calling Phil stupid things like pedo, calling Leanna his daughter etc.).

  15. I'm sorry to say, but that is reality. You could in theory spend your free time learning how to use your new equipment, that is life. You sacrifice something to get results. For example, after work I may have to sacrifice my free time to do some catch up work or be on call, you do not need money to learn how to use equipment that you may or may not even bother learning how to use. From your experience of buying capture cards that haven't worked, I personally as a Patron wouldn't trust you to do that. Like I said above, with your experience, I wouldn't trust you to do that in the slightest. Pl

  16. ​Nah, I don't think you have to go so far as to make the gaming or vlogging content PG to make it work, you just need to make sure you can keep yourself composed and try to simulate a lot of the positive energy you seemed to consistently have when you used to play with John Rambo. I bet that's another reason why people miss him so much. I understand that's harder to emulate when playing by yourself, but give laughing off the fails a try. Moments like when the dragon in Dark Souls 1 blew fire way up your ass when you were trying to escape up that long ladder is a perfect example of reacting

  17. I say cut down on the sexual and racial commentary a bit. Making perverted jokes like, "take your top off" or making stereotype jokes are okay if used in moderation, but overdoing it could kill a playthrough. Sorry if I sound a little PC.

  18. "WTF is" are not reviews, they're a first impressions. Also, frankly, TB is far more articulate than DSP. He analyses games to a much great degree and needs a long time to express his feelings. I'll go into the main reason why they're not comparable in a second. No one on Youtube does reviews like AngryJoe and that's an incredibly unfair comparison to make. Joe not only critiques the game but writes and performs sketches that highlight the ridiculousness of critiques that he might have, as well as showing specific examples from his live-streams cut into it. There's far more content there

  19. Do your homework. I've been making silly crap for what ... 8 years now? It started there and it takes merely one look at my channel to know that the series I started with is much, much more popular than YouTube Ave as well. And my mention of the charity was in criticism to the people that exonerate them for the obvious damage they're encouraging on the other hand. I don't take issue with people doing charity, but I do take issue with it being used as a reason to look the other way when harm is being dealt. And as for the constructive criticism he's accepted, one example is how he now incor

Is it not within the realms of possibility that she could have either used public transport or - heaven forbid - walked to a store? But hey, if you want to play the baseless speculation game, allow me to play too: ParksAndRec made this forum thread, therefore he may have killed someone and used their computer to post it.

I don't see the point in the prestreams and just the constant soapboxing phil has been doing on the prestream the last week or so. And when he talks about other Youtubers even though he said tons in the past he doesn't watch other youtubers content so it's more hear say.dies 400 times to a boss? sorry phil but no stream,nor video I have seen of a streamer or youtuber died that many,don't over dramaticize stuff that bad.You are

I find it very distasteful and disrespectful that so many people who I currently have open conversations with right now are talking about me in such a way as if I am the cause of this or that I am some terrible person. So I was sitting back the night this happened and had this story fall into my lap, if Revan gives permission I'll post the screencap of how it happened since all of this is where it is by now. Revan was trying to convey to me that "hey you guys constantly get sin

  23. So last night Phil posted a huge rant on twitter. Again. And it raised a few questions for me. Before I ask the questions I'll post the whole rant here so no one has to go looking for it. 1. How do you know they're mentally ill? Because they check your twitter feed and forums and then respond to it? If that's the case then so are your fans 2. How exactly are the SoK trying to ruin your life? I think you're grossly exaggerating there along with the mentally ill thing. 3. Not question, just pointing out that by your apparent definition of stalker every single one of your followers on twitter i

  24. I played Minecraft before it became a "fad" and loved it, even when it was in early alpha with barely any features. It's a true sandbox, and it's a complete fallacy that "it's only really enjoyable with mods". Getting a few friends together on a server and working together - or even screwing up each others shit - is some of the most fun I've had gaming in recent(ish) memory. It kind of died out for me later on, but it didn't stop me from putting close to 200 hours into the game without installing any mods. Also, Minecraft is not "simple". You're equating graphics = complex, which is completely

For instance, put some time and effort to your editing skills and be more interactive to them which will lead to... 2. Fan interaction - Talk to your fans like they are your friends. If you have a rough day, try not to snap on them, but if you do, man up and apologize for your screw-ups and never do them again. 3. Never treat your community like robots - I remember there's a moderator who mostly cares for the fans, but some reason he was de-modded. Now do you think we ne

  26. I think I can put things into perspective. It's pretty safe to say that Phil is not in fact, playing a character. That's a really tough act to consistently keep up, yet there haven't been any holes in the "character" at all. People say over the years, Phil's commentary and liveliness have withered, suggesting he's having trouble keeping the character up. Not so. I think the answer is pretty simple for this one. Making a hobby your job and turning it routine takes all the fun out of it and video games are absolutely no exception to that. Used to be, Phil did this once he was off work. It'

  27. The fact of the matter is, you shouldn't be paid regardless to learn to use green screen, its the nature of your job. Does a writer get paid to learn how to write while on the job? No, he learns it as he goes along. I understand that you probably need time for relaxation, I get it. But the thing is, there's still time each day or you to learn the green screen. Say you have 7 hours sleep, a very generous 2 hours each for breakfast lunch and dinner, 5 hours for video games and 2 hours to relax and another 2 hours for baths etc . Guess what? you still have 2 hours to learn the green screen. So th

  29. I've stopped watching Phil's gaming content around 2-3 years ago, the playthrough that did it for me was the KH Final Mix. I am still subbed to his VLogs channel because I enjoy the occasional DSP Tries it. Although these are my personal reasons why I stopped watching his content, I feel that it can be generalized to a lot of his former fans. tl;dr: Phil insults his critics too quickly and too harshly for minor comments. He cannot remain accountable to his fans building distrust. Instead of showing that he's personable he just tears down others to make himself look good in comparison. His gam

  31. ​Phil its really important that you read through the pages. These people haven't broken any rules so far and they've only given constructive criticism. In fact they've even given you advice on other threads to help improve your channel, I don't see a reason to just move the discussion when everything has been fine so far. Please Phil, try and have a more open mind about this. I'm only saying this to help you and I have no malicious intent towards you.

  32. ​Firstly you're making an assumption that some people wont enjoy that failure. (Which i'm sure many would especially in a souls game.) Second this could easily be remedied by just uploading few fails and saving the full unedited playthrough for your stream upload. That would make everyone happy. Though i honestly doubt those complaining about your failure are anything more than a vocal minority. The reason you get a backlash with your rage is due to you blaming the game and the developers for your failings. You need to redirect that anger and check your ego. ​What a weak sauce argument.

  33. I can't believe I'm having to talk about this so long after he left, but Phil needs to stop talking about Twitch streamers like he knows what they do. He has NEVER watched a twitch stream, not one. When he talks about Twitch streamers he's talking completely out his ass and it pisses me off. It pisses me off more that his fans believe the utter bullshit he says about Twitch and Twitch streamers. I watch several Twitch streamers, including some of the most popular ones. None of them beg for subs and donations every five minutes. Or beg ever for that matter. The only streamer or youtuber I have

  36. You work "nonstop" playing video games and uploading the raw footage , vlogging and once in a blue moon you edit a video! Wow did you just really say you have a "full life" because you own a house and take care of someone? so just because someone does not own a house and chooses to take care of someone they don't have a "full life"? What you do for a living is doing a hobby that most people do for fun.

  37. Here's a real suggestion, that I'll bulletpoint for your sake. Only using your forums to make lengthy, defensive posts about how whatever you do is absolutely correct and reply to pages of conversation with a blanket "no, you're wrong, stop it" rather than engaging with what little community survived this past week's purge certainly does not make anyone else want to join up or try to chat with you.

  39. I am very confused as to how the reputation system works. Me and several other members have not been able to up or down vote any posts since yesterday. I personally have used the up and down votes appropriately with a healthy mix of both when I feel the post deserves it. Can we please get some explanation as to why members are not allowed to use the reputation system anymore? Is there a daily limit? Is there a point when you are just not allowed to vote anymore without warning?

  40. Went back on the stream archive, confirming what has been mentioned. Phil said not to worry about what is on the page. I am worried. I do not know how else to express this, so I'm just going to start. Phil, when you write in the third person, it comes off as disingenuous and awkward. This is nothing new, I've seen this in your video descriptions and year end series plenty of times before. You are essentially asking for donations, and the interpersonal skills are lacking big time.Regurgitating your spiel of who you are, what you've overcome and where you are now has become maddening.

  42. Here are my two cents.. 1) Early access to videos (as I understand, this is quite common with Patreon members with other Youtubers) 2) Exclusive gaming nights. Like fan appreciation but here only Patreon members get to play with him. He could do this like once a month. 3) Custom rank here on the forums 4) If a Patreon member is a beginning YouTuber, Phil could them shout outs in his videos and help him/her get started 5) Hangouts. Using Skype etc, Phil could arrange nights where he sits down with Patreon members and they talk about whatever they want.

Pretty sure they only do that podcast from time to time so people don't completely forget about them. I say just ignore them. SOK aside, there's still some detractors that have kept with it like Drgnkiller. However it's only a matter of time until life hits them. Phil can go on making videos for years with patreon, they can't. Honestly look, we're all gamers. We all share the same hobbies. Detractors need to get their shit together and st

  45. ^ If you don't watch anyone else then why do you mock other Youtubers so often, speculate about their motivations for making videos, and boast about how different your content is in comparison? Then call people haters and malicious who do that same thing to you...aside from the last bit.

That's just one of many problems with you "None of your business what I do in private" yet you tell everyone every damn "private" thing about you and what you do on the internet. It is our business since you claim you're in massive debt and you're wanting us to donate to you but somehow you're giving hundreds to a mobile game, paying hundreds for movies/TV shows, you eat out quite a lot, going to be paying hundreds for a hotel that's only 20
