Evony Files Lawsuit Against Blogger for Criticism

Bruce EverissThe web based strategy game known as “Evony” whom has been advertising on the internet using non related images of female cleavage is now suing Bruce Everiss of bruceongames.com. Evony has been known as the “most despised game on the web” and it seems Evony is taking a move to silent the critics.

Evony has filed a lawsuit against Bruce for his opinions and revealing truth on what the game is about — “Pay for Power”. Bruce was not the only critic around but many other bloggers and even publishers including Popcap has had some remarks of their own. Of all players, why pick on the small individual blogger?

The demands on the lawsuit doesn’t look like they’re looking for money but to have all offensive materials removed as well as a formal apology on Bruces website. What a way to win back the gaming community eh?

    Bruce is a prick and a moron.

  2. Abscess says:

    That game is crap. I played it for 2-3 hours and that is all I needed to realize how lame it was. Can I sue Evony to give back the time I wasted laying it?

  3. OMG! says:

    ROFL!!! I actually know these guys who made this game. They really are scammers. One guy actualy has a police record and the other has run numerous internet scams in the past. I cant believe they are doing this. LOL, morons will get themselves in jail if they go to court.

      Morons that make several million dollars per week. One would certainly hope they find themselves in jail soon seeing as they do nothing more than defraud the true morons.

  4. Jarn says:

    I have heard on the news that one of the managers of the game has actually been involved in under-age pornography, but not charged.

    Maybe that's why the ads are so sexual?

    Seems like they're just a bunch of old guys trying to get young people to play their games to prey on them?

  5. ZeroGravity says:

    Wow…..Bruce you came up with all those blogs on your own or did you have help? I dont think Ive ever looked at anything more full of crap, Not even a plugged toilet.

    I would agree with LOL

    Bruce = Moron

    But then after all Rain man practically bankrupt a casino and he was a retard!

    Sounds about right…

    Evony = spam

    spam = unwanted advertising, false advertising, etc…

    Evony = unwanted false advertising

    Evony is the biggest waste of time ever, you spend a lot of time building things up and all it takes is one hostile bully with high prestige and lots of armies to wipe you out in a few hours and thus you loose it all in a flash.

    So if you want to waste hours and days only to find yourself with nothing, then go ahead and play it.

    I am a student studying computer games design at uni and decided to investigate Evony.com.

    Just to see what some of these games are like etc. etc.

    The game is actually kind of cool (found myself addicted and even spent a little money on it).

    But I started to notice HUGE bandwidth use by the site as I played.

    I am not the only one either, there are comments on the evony forums about this.

    This is odd because all of the client info, the animations etc. are all downloaded in one big download at the start.

    There is no streaming media so I began to wonder what was going on.

    To cut a long story short I decided to break the law and reverse engineer Evony's client.

    Not to cheat. Not to rip them off or even to use even a scrap of the code.

    But just to poke about a bit and find out what was going on, maybe even offer them some ways to improve things.

    Aside from the fact that the whole thing is very poorly constructed (it is really very beginner coder level stuff. Reminds me of a lot of

    what the first year students produce for assignments) it contained some very interesting information.

    Included with the client are 2 peices of tracking software that monitor your web use and which applications you have open while the client is running.

    These do not install independently on the machine though due to the limitations of flash and do not actually damage anything.

    But they harvest massive volumes of information. My firewall was blocking a lot of outgoing transmissions and it turns out that these

    were the data trying to be sent out. So they know nothing about me. lol.

    However there is a LOT of data coming IN over the ports the client uses. In otherwords it is downloading something into my cache for use later.

    I have bandiwdth restriction which slows these types of tricks down and I completely clear my cache every couple of hours if I am heavily using the net.

    I also noticed that all the varanbles etc. are named Civony still and that there are multiple references to UMGE.

    Even a couple of folders are simply called UMGE, one of these folders contains one of the spyware programs.

    So I can only guess at where the data would end up if I didnt have a good firewall.

    There are also commented out sections in the code which contain references to UMGE and Lam himself, though low on details.

    Thank you for reading this.

    You know, Ive actually had an account there for 2-3 months, and its a pretty cool game if you take the time to actually play it.(Well of course its gonna be sh1t if you just play 2-3 hours!) And, also in the defense of the evony peoples, None of them evver had any police records,( Which aren't even called police records, there criminal records.. I know, big difference, Huh?) and the actual game is desighned pretty good. Its really easy to understand, fun to attack other REAL online players, and to upgrade all the possible sh1t you could possibly think of.So, over all, I say, evony can be like a pornstar when it comes to doing ads, but the actual game is pretty cool.

  10. BYTEME says:

    Ya gotta wonder why, with all the other people taking shots at evony, that evony only goes after one guy????

    Evony has spam advertising, hell everyone knows it…it appears so many places that people comment on how sick they are of it….lurid advertising (with sexual implications that do not deliver…which is false advertising…) being used to draw players???…how desperate are these whackjobs at evony???

    I took one look at the game being played and decided right there that I would never play it (and I spend a couple hundred bucks a month on 10 different games!!!…yea I know, but some just suck enough that I won`t waste money on them…even though I kinda like playing…lawls)..this crap they are doing now is prolly driving more players away than the horrendous game itself.

    HEY EVONY……EPIC LEGENDARY PHAIL YA DAM LOSERS!!!!!!!!!!!!
