Actually, SSG hasn't had much of anything to say for a long time, and we've been quite competitive with the other "big" sites in GH and RS for a while... Sometimes we break news before they do and they get it later, sometimes they break news before we do... That's neither here nor there.
Sometimes the small sites get a story too and it's good. DSP2 I expected to not do this...
To be honest, this is lame for a number of reasons, the least of which is that it isn't even really a "joke". SW.com, the official site, has a real april fool's joke... Something outrageous and unbelievable that people still scratch their heads over. DSP2 took a story people have been cryin' on forums about since 2002 and shoved it in their face with a big middle finger if you ask me.
I don't know the reporter that did the joke and I didn't even visit their site about it... It was "near' that time of year so I just didn't care enough but to read what anyone was saying IN HERE about it. That was all I'd heard... Finding out it's a lame attempt at humor doesn't then surprise me, but at the same time I'm disappointed in DSP2 posting something that actually is a little spiteful almost towards the people who want the thing... And that's not even me. if it's underscaled I don't want it and if the pack-ins were new I'd have been first on the bitch list. I'm more disappointed FOR the people who actually did want it. Just because I don't doesn't mean I begrudge people their happiness... I just want what I want more and first.
Anyway, sorry to those who did have hopes up on any level... What are ya gonna do though? Scum's had some lame ass April Fool's Day jokes out there folks, so don't think that this is something ONLY Death Star Plans2 would do to you to dick you over and make you think something that isn't true.
For credibility, DSP2 is no more credible than RS or anyone else, but they basically shot themselves in the foot with this story on gaining the "trust" of people out there who don't know them... That's where they made their biggest mistake in this gag or whatever it was.
Personally I agreed with Darth Anton's words when I read them... I kind of figured it was BS and it was, but man that's a fast way to annoy a lot of people.
