They openly post on and support ResetEra to the detriment of their official forums and patreons. They also kowtowed when certain members whined about Peach Beach Splash and refused to play the game when it won the fan vote.

They may not be completely under the influence of SJW idiocy, but it certainly sits in the shadows and shows its face every now and again. It is most prevalent in any of the various sub-communities, official or unofficial.
Thanks for the reply. I can forgive them for supporting ResetEra, but only up to a point. I hope this Pedogate with Era will openly their eyes to how terrible that place is.

At least they're not as bad as the idiots that run Kotaku and Polygon.

I have been a patron since the beginning of EZA. I was part of the group that voted for Peach Beach Splash. For one, I was playing the game at the time and it was a blast, and thought it would make a great stream. And two, of course it'd be fun to see their reactions to the antics in that game. When the stream came on that night, they were angry, nervous, bitter, and resentful that their audience would *make them* go against the patron's choice. "We should have known better. Of course they weren't going to play a game that objectified women." That smug moral high-ground and disregard for their paying audience's wants made me drop my Patreon pledge. I still listen to the podcast most of the time, I can't lie. I've loved Kyle Bosman since his Final Bosman show on Gametrailers. But man, some of the stuff they say and treat as gospel is insufferable.

In fairness, I have never seen any of the Allies post outside of their own Easy Allies topic. They rarely talk about bullshit like AgendaEra does. Take the THQ Nordic bullshit for example, they had maybe a 10 minute conversation and haven't mentioned it since plus, they're very interested in Darksiders Genesis and Biomutant. They seem to stay away from all of that shit 95% of the time if not more which is why I like them a lot. They simply talk about consoles and games while leaving all the bullshit for others to discuss.

They shouldn't be posting primarily on a closed forum like that to begin with. They should be doing it on their official forums - a place anyone can sign up on without having the fear of being doxxed.

Agreed but it is what it is. I like the majority of Allies and as long as they keep talking about games and keep all the bullshit to a minimum which they do, I'll keep watching them.

People are giving Damiani too much shit. Personally I think his social awkwardness antics are far less annoying than Ben Moore's.

that's a hottake if i've ever heard one! ben moore rules!
Ben is definitely one of my favorites.

In other news: Sad to hear about Huber’s brother as well. Between him and Ian, the Allies seem to be having a hard time of it this year. My heart goes out to both.

Ha. Talk about hijacking the moments. Ben talks way too much, sabotaging discussions with his sighing and grandstanding, only to reveal a few minutes later that he had nothing to say. He constantly trying to be Huber and appear hyped about everything, but it's all phony and been proven multiple times.

You literally just described Damiani.

Yeah seriously. It's crazy watching life and death play out back to back with them right now. Ian and Huber losing people, but Jones and Amanda having their son early. It's all happening in quick succession.

Favorite Allies:

Bosman
Moore
Huber
Jones
Casanova
Ellis
Hinck
Damiani
Bloodworth

No offense to Bloodworth – I think I’d get along with him really well, and he keeps EZA a well-oiled machine. It’s just that when on a panel he tends to sound sleepy.

Blood's definitely more of a behind-the-scenes kind of guy. My order for their on-camera personality is pretty much the same.
