Broken Base Cleanup

[up][up] These last two bullet points are pure complaining with no mention of the other side of the argument, so they should definitely be cut.

I stumbled across BrokenBase.Two Best Friends Play, which looks pretty bad. I'm not very familiar with these videos (I have watched a few, but I'm not part of their fan base), but the page has many examples that seem to have been added shortly after the controversy occurred, as well as a lot of one-sided complaining. Honestly, only the very last example on the page reads like it has the slightest chance of possibly being valid:

  • As much as the Best Friends tried to avoid it with a simple and eloquent explanation that their members have drifted apart, the fanbase has now broken into a number of groups blaming all manner of things and individuals for the split; this includes Leanna, Paige, and Liam alongside Matt and Pat themselves, the latter subject to all manner of pulling receipts over his attitude. The only one free from being blamed at all is Woolie, who has set forth on his own podcast and working with Pat on smaller projects, and receiving nothing but well-wishes from the fans for doing so.

From YMMV.Cinderella, does the last sentence of the Base-Breaking Character entry for Disney's Cindy really describe a different faction from the two described in the first sentence?

  • Cinderella has received criticism for acting subservient to her stepfamily, and depending on others to help her achieve her dreams, as well as praise for maintaining faith in the face of abuse, and taking more steps towards achieving her dreams than Snow White and Aurora did. She has become far more assertive and confident in the more recent sequels. Others argue that she's a compelling physical and mental abuse victim who has been so conditioned to accept horror from an early age that it takes the events of the film for her to grow and realize that she doesn't have to accept abuse and she needs to get out.

I'm not sure any of those really sound like "factions," just different takes on the character. It's not hard to imagine someone holding two or more of those views simultaneously.

That example comes off more as 'people disagree on whether the portrayal was good or bad, for reasons X, Y, and Z', which is PSOC, since that state of play exists for every work.

It feels so good to have no signature at last.

I agree the RWBY Broken Base additions, especially that last bullet point, needs to be removed.

Two of the bullet points, Lettergate - the 35 page diatribe from a former animator and a supposed friend of Monty Oum accusing Rooster Teeth of "ruining Monty's vision" - and Vic Mignogna - Rooster Teeth firing him over Vic's allegations of sexual misconduct - has already been declared Flame Bait over there.

The other two, the Crunch - a revelation that animators were put through a terrible Crunch Time and were apparently not compensated for it - and the increase of FIRST subscription prices - which really has nothing to do with RWBY itself -happened within the past three months and are really just people complaining for the sake of complaining.
