Do I want them to take money from a garbage Dev that lies, steals and flat out uses PORN(Actual porn not fanservice) as an advertisement tool?


Well i wouldn't classify some advertisement methods as porn. I am sure that material is not allowed on AG. However some companies like to use a proven technique of using art work to attract. Be it erotic art which isn't really porn. I do think it is sad to use that method to get people to play but sadly erotic things sell well. The best thing to do is not to get pulled in by this type of advertisement but i am not sure of the possibility of that.

Capitalism... think about contracts... contracts with a company...
... League of Angels is from R2games, some other games here on AG are also from R2games... deny them releasing one of their products (if its not totaly breaking AGs rules in general... and its not AGs job to make sure they host only high quality products) could be
a.) against their contract so they simply cant deny it
b.) could damage/end their cooperation (loss of money)
c.) could easily hemper any cooperations with other companies (also loss of money).

Every site of this kind host crap games, flashgames and MMOs.
And most of these MMOs are crap. If you dont like them, dont play them, if you dont like a specail game, dont play it.
If you want better games --> adress this to the devs (but i dont think you have success), not the hosting website(s... they are more that host this game).

Some games are total ripoffs, some are more or less ripoffs... stealing ideas and making money out of it... sometimes sad, but thats the way it works, and we saw this as long as games existed... and we surely will see it in the future too.

Using porn/sex as advertisement tool? Cmon, the majority of ads work with porn/sex... sex sells.

As long as this market runs (and thats up to the users worlswide, if they pay for crap, they will get crap) free websites will and must host this games.

I cant follow your fears, this "free to play MMO" system we see now could die out as fast as its growing up, but for now its a system that works, so many companies try to make money out of it, and so free hosting sites must participate in this sector too... to pay their bills. And yes, AG will make other moves in the future to pay their bills, but the core word for AG is free.
Some other sites that make that drastical change (turning from a free to a pay site) died because of this.

Are you implying League of Legends isn't a ripoff of DotA?

No. Check the first post. He's saying that League of Angels is a ripoff. You're off-topic.

No I'm not, and obviously you didn't get the blatant point of my post, so good job there.

He's complaining about how League of Angels is a ripoff of LoL, despite how LoL is a ripoff of DotA.

Well maybe if they have picked a better name I wouldn't have used "League of Ripoffs". Though I would use Ripoff, Cheat, Scam, or the like somewhere in the title. Heck it could have been called "Defense of the Scammers" if they had picked a different title to try to copy.

I don't mean rip off in the fact that they copied a game. I mean they ripped off the players, con'd them, etc etc.

You just followed my fears right there, so I don't know what you don't seem to 'get'. What happens to AG when it just becomes an MMO hosting site(and a bad one at that)? What happens when it crashes? What happens when one of these larger companies pushes for more control over AG in some form or another?

I like AG, I really do. But I don't like the MMO present it's in as a form of income and I really don't like what could happen in the future. All these facebook like MMOs and low quality scam games can't last.

Now if you excuse me, I need to work on Defense of the Devas, a game that uses things from WoW, DotA, and Halo which will get on Armor games. Why? Because I can it seems.

Oh,did they actually add LoA? Well I'm not suprised,you will see a lot of popular MMO's here eventually.And I don't know how do you mind them adding MMO's,nobody's forcing you to play them. And I know that game is crap when I saw screenshots. Just play your favorite game,and avoid looking at MMO section....

think i first noticed a decline in quality overall (mmo section) way back when bushwhacker 2 was first added. then came egg breaker (why is that garbage still on here anyway?) and from there things just kept on going and now we have cookie cutter type games like glory of gods (similar games would be league of angels, angel's wrath, and dawn of darkness), several tactics games which are the exact same game basically but with a different theme and a few different features here and there, and other low quality crap. theres also pockie saints, never playing something like that as its got far more auto features than needed. auto-combat would work but only if available for super long fights, otherwise who really needs any auto-functions? thats not even you playing the game when using them, its the game playing the game for you which is lazy.

@pangtongshu:

Nope. I think they just based their title from League of Legends. League of Angels is more like Wartune.
